Into The Wild West: Biotech Trading

While investors continue to focus on the volatility of the overall markets, they may be missing some great opportunities in some overlooked biotech names.

Which ones?

ISI analyst Dr. Mark Schoenbaum says the best way to play the space is to look at stocks with catalysts. He recommends the following:

Amylin – "The stock could go over $20 if their new diabetes drug is approved," he says.

Human Genome - "I think it has 10-20% upside into the end of the year if their lupus drug is approved," says Schoenbaum.

Genzyme – "This is a turn around story but I think this stock also has 10-20% upside into the end of the year," Schoenbaum adds.
