Northern, WI 05/09/2013 (GDPInsider) –  Dendreon Corporation (NASDAQ:DNDN) started today’s trading session at 4.38 and is now trading down 10.21%. The stock has a range of 3.95 and 4.40 with a volume of 12.03 million. DNDN has shown slight upticks in trading since the start of May 2013 but is still far off from the highs recorded in February. The stock is down 54.60% on its 52-week high of 9.34 but up 3.69% on its 52-week low of 3.69. Analysts have set a target price of 6.17 and the stock has a RSI of 34.17, suggesting of course, that DNDN is creeping close to being oversold.

Investors were greeted with less than sobering numbers when DNDN released its Q1 fiscal earnings figures. Revenue fell 18% to $67.6 million and the company had a net loss of $72 million for the quarter. CEO and President John Johnson summed up the dismal performance this way: “I am not satisfied with these results.”

The company will be banking heavily on the new trial sequencing of its drug, Provenge. This is expected to begin at the start of quarter four 2013.
