A Promising Strategic Agreement Between A Large and A Small Biotech Firms.

  Thursday, October 13, 2016

When plenty of news comes out of the biotech sector, we are left with no option but prioritizing. Connecting the dots also might serve some purpose, including smelling take-over possibilities that make sense or contribute to improvements of the treatments and of firms’ finances. Prioritizing comprises selecting as much as possible the most concrete subjects that are safe to explore.  More...

Biotech Firms with Guaranteed Growth Potential

  Thursday, July 07, 2016

Good news is not always great news that makes a difference. In the drug industry, clinical trial results that demonstrate a drug has fulfilled the requirements of the trials, including the primary and secondary endpoints does not always guarantee that the drug will be successful if and when it hits the market. Experience and follow up on certain firms enables us to see the real light at the end of the tunnel, not just celebrate reaching the end of it without knowing what to expect outside. This makes a big difference.  More...

REGENERON'S HORSE EYELEA TRIPLES ITS SPEED

  Tuesday, August 06, 2013

Each and every time investors believed Regeneron (REGN) highest high value has been reached, like a magician, it pulled another chicken out of its long black hat and made it lay another golden egg. Regeneron’s new different egg is expected to boost its wealth, turning the current estimation upside down, i.e., from overvalued or fairly valued into undervalued.    More...

REDEFINING "CREATING SHAREHOLDER VALUE"

  Tuesday, May 15, 2012

The time has come for redefining the meaning of “creating shareholders value” in the biotech sector. Pinpointing the real value has become imperative. It is the road to a fair assessment of innovative biotech firms. It helps investors reap the fruits of the real value of excellent firms at the right time, rather than rush to sell extremely promising stocks while still undervalued. It makes investors think twice before throwing their shares of firms that are installing one by one the building blocks of their vision. Creating shareholders value is investing in the future. The cost of this investment shouldn’t be cause for downgrading the stocks because of overspending, which has become a normal pattern. We still see all development-stage biotech stock prices slashed following the announcement of their quarterly results. There is a big difference between spending on the future and spending because the money has been made available. Investors can know the difference. The first thing to look for is whether the firm has any program in development that is worth spending on, including buying firms having a technology that is badly required for the successful outcome of the firm’s program. This kind of investment should not be punished or treated as unnecessary spending. More...

Regeneron & Amgen: More Breakthrough Drugs In The Horizon

  Wednesday, November 16, 2011

In controlling high cholesterol levels statins have reigned for a very long time, generating over $30 billion/year with products like Lipitor and crestor generating almost ten million/year each. Statins act by blocking HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme required for the production of LDL, (the bad cholesterol) in the liver. Statins side effects could be severe. They can cause muscle damage. Some physicians believe they are overprescribed, as 30 million Americans currently take the cholesterol pills. More...

Monster Blockbuster Anti-Cholesterol Drugs In Biotechs’ Pipelines

  Wednesday, August 31, 2011

The new biological science is evolving at the speed of light. As a matter of fact, the bright penetrating light of the genomic revolution is effectively reaching the dark corners where the utmost reality remained hidden since millions of years. The new light enabled the insight to match the sight in divulging the buried secrets of body at the molecular level. With the most advanced tools ever created by human minds, scientists have reached a stage where they can spend much less effort in solving much more puzzles on the road towards solving the problems of diseases at their root-origin. The successful are those researchers who keep their eyes open and their minds prepared. More...

REGENERON: A GREAT LESSON TO LEARN

  Thursday, May 05, 2011

First, we congratulate our subscribers who did not follow the skeptics and believed in the rationality of science and kept their Vertex’ (VRTX) and Regeneron’s (REGN) shares despite years of negative campaigns against the two firms. Following the rally in VRTX, another rally started in REGN for rational reasons. Both firms are among our TOP TEN selection. More...

Regeneron: A Sound, Well-Executed Strategy

  Tuesday, February 22, 2011

When Regeneron (REGN) was a development stage firm, it spent a substantial time in developing and validating a solid scientific, technological and industrial infrastructure. At its inception, Regeneron’s vision was to provide a self-sufficient capability for discovering and developing far-reaching breakthrough products. Its strategy for its therapeutic discovery has been to establish a solid foundation that enables it to build its pipeline product through in house genomic technology for understand functional gene expression. Its drug design strategy focused on creating a novel approach, which would enable controlling signaling proteins, whose excesses cause cell deregulation. The strategy focused also on designing human monoclonal antibodies that are far-reaching, time consuming and impacting. Until the time these technologies were put in place and was validated, REGN served as a vehicle for daily trading. Both positive and negative players benefited from the yo-yoing of the stock. Stock investors and analysts are not impressed with breakthrough technologies created by development stage biotech firms until they are validated. Otherwise, they consider them untested, hence, not credible and not trustable for long-term investing.  More...
