WINDSOR, ON / ACCESSWIRE / July 30, 2015 / The Wealthy Biotech Trader, an investment newsletter focused on showing everyday investors new opportunities in rapidly growing, little-known, biotech stocks making news and subsequent market moves, announced today some trade ideas for the second half of 2015 – biotech stocks hand-picked by some of finance’s biggest experts. These guys won big in the first half of the year, so why not keep the train rolling?
As evidenced by the fact that most retail investors do not yet know about how much money is being made in this sector, we feel things are just getting started and nowhere close to a bubble. But form your own assumptions after reading this.
Healthcare/ biotech started its secular bull market in March of 2009 much like the overall market, but The Nasdaq Biotech Index (NASDAQ:IBB) has returned a stunning 550% return in only 6 1/2 years which pales in comparison to the overall market (the S&P 500) over the same timeframe, which has only returned 180%. It’s important to note that by taking the advice of seasoned, expert stock pickers and activist investors who invest with their own billions, traders could have made returns far in excess of these as there are many winners in this universe. Here are a few stocks in the space we have hand-selected based on hard evidence of huge potential success.
PositiveID Corporation (OTC: PSID), a developer of biological detection and diagnostics solutions, this week announced its goals for the second half of 2015, which focus on the continued development and testing of the Firefly Dx prototype PCR (polymerase chain reaction) pathogen detection system that is targeting the $27 billion global PCR market. The Company is targeting to report revenue in excess of $3 million for 2015, compared to revenue of $945,000 for 2014. The full press release can be reviewed here: http://goo.gl/xLpczi. Aside from the 217% increase in revenue year over year, we are extremely keen on this stock because of their Firefly Dx product under development.
(PSID)’s Firefly Dx, once developed, would be a one-of-a-kind handheld device that can take a blood/saliva sample or meat/produce sample and test it and provide lab-quality results within 20 minutes to see if the sample is infected with a contagious disease or the food is contaminated. This type of testing can currently only be done in a lab, is not practical, and is time consuming taking four hours or more, only after it has been transported to the lab. This would be a hand-held/ portable, cost-effective lab that first responders, doctors, military, food processors (among many others) could all use to prevent epidemics of disease and dangerous contaminated food getting into our food supply. To our knowledge no other companies are attempting this, and PositiveID (PSID) is heavily protecting their work/intellectual property with many patents. This could be a multi-billion dollar sales product on its own, in our opinion. The Company could be commercially selling Firefly Dx next year, which is really not that far as stocks tend to move in anticipation of events such as this.
Three other biotech companies worth watch-listing for the coming days, weeks or months are as follows:
Recro Pharma, Inc. (REPH) is our most compelling play for the second half of the year and 2016. The main reason is because very recently a hedge fund called Broadfin Capital made a large Investment in the company just weeks ago (other institutional investors are all over this one as well). Broadfin is run by the very wealthy and successful Kevin Kotler. We won’t get into Mr. Kotler’s employment past which is filled with A+ financial positions with the biggest and most successful financial firms on Wall Street. All in all, the reason this is all notable is that Mr. Kotler’s fund is the third best performing fund in www.InsiderMonkey.com’s whole database. Smart traders follow the smart money.
Aside from this, we feel REPH’s stock chart is insanely bullish looking and seems like it could run much further. We typically wouldn’t say a chart is ripe for entry after a 1,000% annualized move, but REPH’s market cap is quite small at roughly $100 million. As for what the science of the Company is working on (it’s quite comical that we’re mentioning this last), Recro Pharma, Inc., is a clinical stage specialty pharmaceutical company, engaged in developing non-opioid therapeutics for the treatment of pain. This is a hot-button topic with rampant abuse of painkillers, which is literally ruining a lot of lives, and a suitable non-opioid substitute would benefit society greatly.
Another great story is BioSpecifics Technologies Corp. (BSTC). BSTC was recently mentioned as one of the 10 best biotech stocks for 2015 on www.TheStreet.com. BSTC has another great chart, but investors may want to wait for a pull-back to enter. BSTC is a profitable, commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company that has developed injectable collagenase for 12 clinical indications to date.
Next we would like to update on an old time favorite: Advaxis (ADXS). Advaxis, Inc., a clinical stage biotechnology company, focuses on the discovery, development, and commercialization of Lm-LLO cancer immunotherapies in the United States. We like Immunotherapy, we like Oncology companies, and we like ADXS’s chart and the hype that’s come along with it. When we first started to report on ADXS on June 16, 2015, we thought the chart looked like it needed a correction. Since then the stock has retraced from $30 to as low as $15.50. This could represent a nice Fibonacci retracement level of support, and if it holds, it could be an attractive entry point for traders – but be careful!
