Finally: The 2015 Year-End Spec Market Scorecard is complete. (All together now: “Thanks, Landon!”)

We’ve got Q1 2016 spec market numbers coming along shortly (again, thanks to Landon, who’s taking over writing the entire Report from now on), but since those who cannot remember the past are blah blah blah, it’s worth taking a beat to consider last year’s results. As usual, we noted several key takeaways in the opening, and here’s the first one to whet your appetite:

By our count, there were 93 spec script sales last year. That’s slightly up from 2014’s 90, not far off the 7 year average, but way down from the mid-triple digit numbers we saw in 2011 through 2013. That said, those three years now feel like outliers — in 4 of the last 7 years, fewer than 100 spec scripts sold.
