What is Really in HP Acthar Gel?


UPDATE. (9:15 AM PST) We know readers might reasonably wonder:  Were Acthar Gel test samples mishandled and/or degraded in some way before or during testing? 

In fact, the tested vials came from two sources, two different batches, and the second set came straight from an official Acthar distributor, with full chain-of-custody documentation.

Both sample sets tested identically: fully degraded – no ACTH.  Even the deamidated ACTH assayed was far below the stated concentration as specified on the label.

Citron has no idea how or why Questcor allowed apparently deamidated ACTH to get into the market.  But we stand behind the lab results 100%.

SodaStream: Why the Fizz Just Went Out of the Short Position


After a year which promised hyper-growth, but delivered somewhat less than spectacular earnings, SodaStream (NASDAQ:SODA) ended trading yesterday at a 52 week low — but now everything has changed.

The news of the day in today’s market is the 10% investment of Coca Cola in Green Mountain Coffee, with the goal of establishing a definitive market for single serve cold beverages.  After hours, the market reacted as though it was SODA’s “Uh-Oh” moment … But really?
