BONUS PLAY #3 Connectics Corp (NasdaqNM:CNCT)

Connetics Corporation (NASDAQ:CNCT) is focused on the acquisition, development and commercialization of marketed and late-stage products. The Company's product and commercial focus is initially targeted at rheumatology and dermatology, two specialty medical markets. The Company currently markets Ridaura (auranofin), a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis; and ACTIMMUNE (interferon gamma-1b), a treatment for chronic granulomatous disease. On March 1, 1999 the Company received clearance from the FDA to begin marketing Luxiq (betamethasone valerate) Foam, 0.12%, a product to treat corticosteroid-responsive scalp dermatoses. The Company has several products in development including ConXn (recombinant human relaxin H2) targeting scleroderma, organ fibrosis, and infertility; OLUX (clobetasol propionate) Foam, 0.05%, a novel formulation for the treatment of severe scalp dermatoses; and interferon gamma for the treatment of certain congenital, infectious and other diseases.

Looking at all the biotech stocks which most of them have gone from 1 or 2 to 20 or even over 100. CNCT only risen from 4 to 13 13/16 while CNCT revenue has grown from 5 mil to 38 mil and CEO projects good growth ahead. CNCT could be well worth over $20 per share.

Angiogenesis is the buzz word with this stock. This sounds pretty much the same as what CLTX is doing - theyre at $40+ with stage III results due in a few months...and this angiogenesis word seems to be popping up all over the place!
