Biotech Boom…Too Many Eyes on Amgen and Old Names

Rich people don’t want to die. That’s money, especially as the have’s separate themselves from the have not’s like never before.

There are too many eyes on Amgen (AMDN) and Genentech (DNA), the ‘bellwethers’ of Biotech. ISRG is the new medical/biotech leader (I hate not owning that). Equipment, pharmacy, lifestyle, skin and beauty trumps drugs in this latest medical/biotech boom.

Even Medtronic (MDT) – which I am eyeing IS ON FIRE. It makes sense for them to open some steka and egg fast food joints to promote their heart stents. Better yet. Fly’s Buffalo Wing (BWLD) chain to put some ooomph in stent sales on location.

In the meantime, I have been quietly adding medical and biotech stocks to the point that I am freaked out. It just sneaks up on you sometimes. I am freaked out because I have never felt fake boobies from Allergan (I have no life), actually I felt Lindsay’s freebies, and have never used any of the products of the stocks I own in this sector (see below).

ADN, ESRX, GPRO, LIFC, AUXL, QDEL, CYNO are all stocks that I am long and have blogged about my entries. Lifecell (LIFC) is the only one NOT to be Wallstripped but I have pushed it in the production loop. The above names are all are acting superb. If the biotech boom is for real, the price action is telling you that you can’t just focus on cancer and heart anymore.

I mean ‘tissue replacement ‘ is on fire people. I will continue to add medical and biotech breakouts until I get smacked… which will definitely happen.

As trend investor Andy Kessler talked about it on Wallstrip a while back – this trend is still early.

    Don’t forget about BIIB. I bought in at $51 and change in June, now pushing $68. 52-week high was last week at $69.

    Actually, BIIB has been setting a new 52-week high every other day or so since June.

    Figure my BIIB profits will offset the Social Security taxes I have to pay to keep all those old Baby Boomers alive longer.

    Following Fly’s lead, if there was a gun to your head, what’s the one bio stock you would want to be a part of?
