We Believe Pharmacyclics Shares Are Positioned For Growth, Says Roth Capital


Pharmacyclics (PCYC) yesterday announced 2Q14 results, posting EPS of ($0.49) and revenue of $113.0 million. In the last week, Imbruvica received full approval in the U.S. and a positive opinion from the European CHMP, signaling that E.U approval could come in 2-3 months.

The analyst also believes that PCYC shares are positioned for growth.
