Biotech and Pharmaceuticals Top Performers Tuesday's Edition

Big Day today in the market as Wal-Mart, Kraft and Home Depot pushed  earnings up today. Both the DOW and NASDAQ were up 1% today, but this does little to mend the broken market returns of last week just yet.

My big surprise is the Biotech and Pharmaceuticals that don't rise much before big FDA decisions anymore. They seem to crash with the market and get oversold quickly before the big decisions. Jazz Pharma has been down heavily the past two sessions and others as of late have been slightly mixed before big FDA Decisions are looming. Nonetheless here are today's Top Performers.

Beat The Street on these today. I like a lot of these trades made today for Long Term Growth.
