Biotech Stock Tip: Make the Most of the Novel Drug Rush


Just one word caused a stock to rise more than 60% in one day.

It’s what happened earlier this week when the Food and Drug Administration signed off on Biogen Inc.’s (Nasdaq: BIIB) new Alzheimer’s drug Aduhelm.

Pro tip No. 1: I talked about the impact of this specific approval on Biogen and the broader biotech sector in a recent podcast. You can listen to that here.

However, an independent panel of medical experts did not endorse the finding, calling drug trial data “unconvincing.”

Regardless of that criticism, this fast-track special consideration was a huge boost for Biogen’s stock price.

In today’s episode of The Bull & The Bear, chief investment strategist Adam O’Dell, Green Zone Fortunes co-editor Charles Sizemore and I talk about Biogen’s recent approval and how “novel” drugs can give biotech companies a leg up … and give substantial profit to investors.
