Also on his list: Allergan.
"It's got a very balanced portfolio of products," he said. "They sell Botox, which is used for cosmetic purposes, [but also] potentially for migraine and in cerebral palsy...so it also has medicinal uses, and it's growing throughout the world."
Krumpleman owns both Celgene and Allergan through his fund.
