TipRanks, a service that ranks Wall Street analysts, identified the top players in biotech coverage and found which stocks they like for the second half of 2017.

We use a natural language-processing algorithm to rank analysts based on two factors:

  • Average return of buy-sell recommendations
  • Success rate of buy-sell recommendations

We combined the algorithm's insights with a database scan to find the most popular biotech stocks by top analysts right now.

Here are five favorite biotech stocks from the best-performing analysts.
