Biotech is poised to better the market over the next 5 years. IBB should do a bit better than the general biotech industry because of its focus on larger equities.

Time to buy, short term oversold, is or very close to the bottom (near term), should go up for next 1-2 months

Science and drug development are not doing well, but biotech and life sciences companies are on a tear!

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).

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.

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.

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)
