Cytokinetics: Current Investment Thesis Is All About Omecamtiv Mecarbil (CYTK. $13.26, Buy)

Investment Thesis is Almost Exclusively Driven by Prospects for Omecamtiv Mecarbil Omecamtiv Mecarbil is a Potential Mega- Blockbuster Omecamtiv mecarbil is one of the most exciting drugs in development in all of biopharma and is the primary driver of my investment thesis on Cytokinetics.

Cryoport reported a very strong quarter as sales increased by 83%. The key biopharma segment increased sales by 81%.
