Biotech Boom, Biotech Bust?
Here's a good one by Matthew Herper on "Three Misplaced Assumptions That Could End the Biotech Boom". Given the way the biotech stock index has been performing lately, with a horrendous March and April that's taken it into negative territory for the year to date, something definitely seems to be causing a change of mind.
I'll let you see what Herper's three assumptions are, but I can tell you already that they sound valid to me. I think that his points are particularly relevant to investors who may have been jumping on the stocks in the area without having a clear idea of what the industry is really like. As he says, ". . .investors should avoid thinking that the drug business has undergone a fundamental change in the past few years. It hasn’t." It's the same fun-filled thrill ride as ever!
