Clinical trials are ongoing, and I don't anticipate much growth until the current round of trials show conclusive evidence that Cabozantinib is effective. But they already have one FDA approval under their belt, and as more come in the next few years, [Exelixis] will take off.
If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Exelixis may not be your top choice.
