Let the Market Plummet But Not Our stocks

The Market May be Plummeting But Prohost Picks are Not Biotech stocks had a strong start, but the gains disappeared in many stocks as the market demonstrated bearishness following a long-lasting rally. Currently, during the strong economic conditions, commentators attribute the reasons for the market’s upside and downside moves to China’s positive, or negative ongoing negotiations rather than to fair correction of overbought or oversold …

The molecule that enhanced the T Cells cancer treatment efficacy while preventing autoimmune diseases

Yesterday, the Stock Market skyrocketed and with it a significant number of Prohost Picks that we keep reminding ourselves are undervalued. The outperformance unveiled the interred strength of firms such as: Illumina (ILMN), Amgen (AMGN) and Vertex (VRTX), the gene therapy firms: RegenxBio (RGNX) and Spark (ONCE), and the gene editing firms: Crispr (CRSP), Intellia (NTLA) and Editas (EDIT), as well as others in the Prohost Portfolio.

CRISPR gene editing firms clear investors’ confusion

Playing buy and sell games with the CRISPR gene editing stocks is sometimes based on scientific articles that meant to caution about possible problems or by patents that were given to some Universities and denied it to others and vice versa. Different Universities back different CRISPR gene-editing firms, which constituted a reason for the volatility of the gene-editing stocks. Finally, CRISPR Therapeutics (CRSP), Intellia Therapeutics …

Victims of fear and misunderstanding

ProhostLetter #423 TOMORROW’S THERAPEUTICS TODAY For a more or less fair evaluation of biotechnology and pharmaceutical firms, analysts currently rely for their assessment on criteria that include quarterly financial results, products’ sales revenues, and year over year growth of each and every marketed therapeutic. When it comes to clinical-stage firms, the logic implies that these criteria cannot be relied on for evaluation, as most of …

CRISPR Editing and the two published studies

Slashing of the CRISPR gene editing companies’ stocks, including CRISPR Therapeutics (CRSP), Editas (EDIT) and Intellia (NTLA) is caused by two studies published in Nature Medicine, which revealed that cells whose genes are edited by CRISPR/ Cas9 could develop tumors in treated patients. Nobody could blame those who sold the CRSPR gene editing stocks’ because, although many scientists believe that the cited cause can be overcome and others stated that …
