The Dendreon Decline

blogs.reuters.com — Some bankruptcies are utter surprises â like GT Advanced Technologies earlier this year â but often, they come after a company has been circling the drain for a while. One such case came earlier this week for prostate cancer drugmaker Dendreon Corp, a long-time favorite among day traders and boosters of the company, a number of whom were personally affected by the disease in question.

My dinner with The Hulk
