Earlier today, CAPS All-Star zzlangerhans succinctly summed up the Spectrum bull case for our community:

Since the big plunge in March, the stock has traded between 7 and 9 as the street apparently awaits a revenue trend. The latest quarterly numbers weren't much of a help, as Zevalin declined while Fusilev and Folotyn ticked up. I'm unenthusiastic about the Marqibo acquisition and the company was very vague about the prospects for apaziquone in the last CC. Probably the brightest light on the horizon is belinostat, although it seems that the prior goal of a late summer NDA submission won't be happening. In short, I'm not expecting great things from this outperform but I see it as a low risk move as the share price dips to the lower end of recent range.
