SA writer David Zanoni recommends having a look at Celgene (CELG -1.5%), citing its 5 FDA-approved cancer drugs and its extensive pipeline. What Zanoni really likes, though, is Celgene's earnings growth, which is forecast at an average of 25% over the next five years. If that is achieved, "Celgene's stock price of (about) $65 should grow to around $200."

    I have to look over what CELG has in the pipeline. 300% seems unlikely, CELG's current market cap is 27B, so 3x would be nearly 80% of the largest Pharma companies (MRK, PFE, etc.).

     

    I can't see how that can happen without CELG tripling revenues, which probably means at least doubling their drugs. They have five, five more soon is unlikely.

     

    I think CELG is a good buy, just don't expect a 300% return.
