Biotech Stocks Well-Positioned For Fourth Quarter

Oct. 11, 2022 8:30 AM ETAKRO, AMGN, BIIB, BLUE, KRTX, NONOF, NVO, PFE, RYTM, IBB, XBI3 Comments


  • Biotechs are relatively better positioned in this fourth quarter compared to the broader market.
  • Path of interest rates is clearer for 2022 and the Fed is closer to a pause early next year as it calibrates down its response from a hammer approach.
  • Biotechs benefit if a slowdown pushes the longer-term yields lower.
  • M&A, partnerships, and breakthrough treatments provide further support. However, 10-year yields must stabilize and trend down for longer-lasting gains.
  • I do much more than just articles at Prudent Healthcare: Members get access to model portfolios, regular updates, a chat room, and more. Learn More »

A healthcare growth portfolio with a record of consistently strong returns

I have worked as an Analyst on both the Buy (Asset Management) and Sell (Investment Brokerage) sides, as well as in Strategy and Finance roles for technology services companies. For many years, I have been publishing risk-adjusted, return-driven quantitative model portfolios.

We have 3 services - Prudent Healthcare, which is available only on Seeking Alpha, Prudent Biotech, and Prudent Small Cap. You may even register for a Free Monthly Pick from the model portfolios for biotech and small caps on those pages.

We have collaborated with Seeking Alpha to launch a Prudent Healthcare model portfolio, available exclusively in the SA Marketplace. It's a monthly service with a leading track record in healthcare performance.
