Still a lot to learn for CRISPR technology to translate to clinic safely. CRISPR can be fairly selective but there was a recent journal article suggesting many people have antibodies/immune responses against some of the CRISPR elements.

Not ready to take off yet, will out perform in long run, but not sure when that long run starts. Not this year.

Promising technology but this is admittedly a bit of a bet... there are no guarantees in biotech. I already picked Intellia, and due to these two companies having the only legitimate claims on patents in this field that I know of (other than Crispr), it only makes sense to take a basket approach with these. Editas is entering preliminary FDA trials. Editas also won the Broad case. It looks to me like Editas is now in the best position to profit from this technology if it proves effective and safe.

As a side note, I have closed my position in CRISPR for now, as it has made gains above and beyond the other two companies without any concrete evidence that it should have, in my opinion. **This is NOT consistent with my general investing strategy, however neither is gambling (more or less) on biotech. My theory behind the rise in CRISPR relative to EDIT and NTLA is that it is identical in name to the technology, and thus likely the first company anyone sees when researching this. For that reason, mixed with the results of the Broad case and the fact that NTLA is working off the same patent family as CRISPR and I've already staked a position in that, it made sense to move forward with EDIT and NTLA as my basket. This 5+ year call comes with the caveat that I'm both a new investor and consider this very risky even as a young investor, and will not be nearly equal in weight to my other positions.

This is essentially a small-stake aimed at diversifying a tech, advertising, and consumer goods heavy portfolio.
