+ Watch IBB
on My Watchlist
Exchange Traded Funds
This is my first CAP and IBB did well yday
Biotech is a safety net for now until energy cost catches up to demand,
Bio tech will continue to lead the market
This is my signal to start focusing on a shorting strategy. The biobubble will not go on forever (though it could take another year or two).
I love Biotech...I just don't know enough about individual companies to invest in one confidently. So, a basket ETF is lovely.
Biotechs are strong this year.
Playing individual biotech stocks is risky business. This is probably the least risky way to play the sector without taking a chance of waking up one morning to see the company's drug was rejected and opens down 50%+ on an FDA rejection.
Price action here just looks off.
My choices in Biotech are an absolute disaster. Nonetheless, I realize that the sector has some wonderful successes and the needs of the boomer generation plus some "newly discovered" illnesses require new medicines. That makes Biotech a sector to have a presence in.Porte is our resident expert in this area and I am choosing this at his suggestion. It is worth noting that the only Biotech firms that have ever rewarded me - on CAPS or RL - are the ones that Porte has suggested to me. His suggestions are enough for me to add this to CAPS if not to add RL funds to.
The age is finally right
Betting to outperform the 500 this leg down.

I don't dislike biotech (alliterative double negative for you). However, I am willing to say that there are more bad biotech companies than good. Unfortunately, an ETF is going to have both the good and the bad so I'm going to say that a better way to play the industry is to do some extra research and find out what's actually going to work (though I may have an advantage here cuz I'm living on a campus where some of the best biotech research is being conducted)
Biotech poised for excellent returns when the market rebounds
3 to 5 star stock in one year.
new company, exciting stuff
Biotech - if you're in the field you know what's coming out in the next 3 years. 3-6 years looks even more promising. And there are thousands of studies in the 10-15 year period that are just beginning. We have no idea but in about two years, this EFT will shoot far above the S&P 500.
if you play the bioteh, you got to pick the index
