  • Medical Stocks Respond Strongly 0 comments

    As I wrote last week, I expected that the current pullback in medical stocks would be resolved with a significant upswing. This is different than 2013, when declines were pronounced, and reflects changing sentiment, especially toward the smaller capitalization stocks. Today's reaction was a resounding vote of confidence for the sector. I believe that overall US healthcare spending will accelerate in the 2014-'15 timeframe, based on the Affordable Care Act and an improving economy. I continue to recommend the Fab Four (GILD, BIIB, CELG and REGN), the SuperSpec 5 (ADHD, ANAC, GALT, KERX, OSUR) and my 8 small cap ideas. Len

    Disclosure: I am long GILD, BIIB, REGN, CELG, ADHD, ANAC, KERX, GALT, OSUR.
