Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALXN) [Trend Analysis] swings ardently in active trading session, it jumps down of -3.35% to close at $126.02. Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc’s forecast for full-year revenue was not as bad as some investors had feared, at a time when the rare-disease drug maker is looking to steady the ship following the exit of its top management.

The U.S. biotech’s flagship drug, Soliris, has fueled much of the company’s growth, but slowing sales growth in recent quarters and looming competition have made investors jittery. The future of the company hinges on the successful development of its highly anticipated drug, ALXN1210, aimed at treating the same rare blood disorders as Soliris.

The New Haven, Connecticut-based company on Thursday forecast 2017 revenue of $3.40 billion-$3.50 billion, falling short of the average analyst estimate of $3.54 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. “While revenue guidance implies only modest growth, investors should be relieved, since fears about important slowdown in revenue were not realized,” Cowen &Co’s Eric Schmidt said.

Analysts attributed the soft forecast to a stronger dollar, disruptions to Soliris access in Latin America, as well as the adverse impact of patient enrollment for ALXN1210’s trials.
