New Feature: Historical FDA Tracker

publication date: Oct 22, 2010
One of the most common questions we get relates to the recent history of FDA decisions, as it relates to the run-up method.  The reason is simple- it is VERY difficult to find historical information regarding past FDA approvals. Right now ALXA, BIOD, and AVNR are fresh on our minds but as other plays come and go it becomes increasingly difficult to recall former trades.  This spreadsheet contains a wealth of information regarding FDA plays over the past 18 months. 
The entire document is available to subscribers of via the "Historical FDA Tracker" link on the left side of your screen.
Take a look below at a screenshot of just a portion of this spreadsheet:
