1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Traded in other countries:DR6.Germany,
ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc was incorporated in Vermont in 1993 as Receptor Technologies, Inc. The Company reincorporated in Delaware in 1997. It is a biopharmaceutical Company engaged in the development and commercialization of small molecule drugs for the treatment of central nervous system disorders. It has four product candidates in clinical development led by pimavanserin, which is in Phase III development as a potential first-in-class treatment for Parkinsons disease psychosis. Pimavanserin is a new chemical entity that the Company discovered and has advanced to Phase III development as a potential first-in-class treatment for Parkinsons disease psychosis. Parkinsons disease psychosis is a debilitating disorder that develops in up to 60 percent of patients with Parkinsons disease. The Company has completed a Phase II trial with pimavanserin as a co-therapy in schizophrenia and has established plans for a future Phase II feasibility study to explore the use of pimavanserin as a treatment for Alzheimers disease psychosis. In collaboration with Allergan, it has discovered and is developing small molecule product candidates for the treatment of chronic pain. Chronic pain is a common form of persistent pain that may be related to a number of medical conditions and is often resistant to treatment. Allergan has conducted several Phase II trials in this program and has reported preliminary results, including positive proof-of-concept in a human visceral pain trial and efficacy signals in two chronic pain trials in the areas of fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome. The Company has discovered and, in collaboration with Allergan, is developing a small molecule product candidate for the treatment of glaucoma. Glaucoma is a chronic eye disease and is the second leading cause of blindness in the world. This program has reached Phase I development. ACADIA and R-SAT are company's registered trademarks. The Company faces competition from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as numerous academic and research institutions and governmental agencies, both in the United States and abroad. It is subject to federal, state and local laws and regulations governing the use, storage, handling, and disposal of these materials and specified waste products.
