BioCryst: A Prudent Diversification
BioCryst Pharmaceuticals shares have been clobbered due to both the bear market and the uncertainty relating to its lead developing drug (BCX9930). I believe that the FDA would remove the partial clinical hold on BCX9930 by either year-end or next year. The lead drug (Orladeyo) is enjoying robust sales increase due to various launched catalysts.
