  • debeers: $BIIB-add'l research and anouncements Biogen To Collaborate With Skyhawk Therapeutics In Developing Treatments For Neurological Diseases 8:01 AM ET, 01/04/2019 - MT Newswires 08:01 AM EST, 01/04/2019 (MT Newswires) -- Biogen (BIIB) said early Friday that it forged a strategic collaboration with Skyhawk Therapeutics with a view to discover and develop small molecule treatments for patients with neurological diseases. As part of the collaboration, Biogen paid Skyhawk $74 million for research services, which will leverage the latter's SkySTAR technology platform. The deal also gave Biogen an exclusive license to therapeutic candidates for multiple sclerosis, spinal muscular atrophy and other neurological diseases to be developed under the collaboration, while Skyhawk is entitled to potential future milestone payments and royalties.
  • debeers: THE JPM HEALTHCARE CONFERENCE IN SF IS A VERY BIG DEAL - It begins on Monday and the Upgrades and Downgrades usually follow pretty quickly. I have $BIIB going in and as most of you on the East Coast will already be eating dinner, I'll send y'all the notes on this one: CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Biogen Idec Inc. (NASDAQ:BIIB) announced today that its presentation and breakout session at the 26th Annual JPMorgan Healthcare Conference will be webcast live via the internet, on Monday, January 7, 2008 at 4:00 p.m. PT. Whatever you own in this space, you owe it to yourself to read their presentations.
  • debeers: $BIIB -@DAN-Squoze and broke out. Did I mention it was above the 50 and above the 200? No?
    Here's the history and for what to look forward from Bengalu
    FYI- JPM Healthcare conference is next week and you m ight want to look at whatever biotech is y ...
  • debeers: LOSERS OF THE DAY ON STOCKS WE'VE COVERED BEFORE: $NTES, $DGX, $CMG, $ALGN, $AZO, $BIDU, $BIIB, $MA, NP pn any of these but this is a dollar amount list, NOT a per centage list.
  • issues: @sierramp $ATHN But bioteck is a "maybe." I read an article that listed the best biotechs for a rebound: $CELG $NKTR (no pe) $ILMN $REGN $ALXN $VRTX $AMGN $GILD $BIIB $ABBV $A $INCY. But this list is just about all the big biotechs isn't it?
  • bRobert: $AMGN $BIIB $REGN $VRTX Perky big cap biotech
  • bRobert: $AGN $REGN $BIIB Consolidating nice summer gains. Preparing for next move. Watch. React. These will be big moves.
  • bRobert: $AMGN $BIIB $REGN $VRTX . $GILD . Big cap biotech with high upside.
  • bRobert: $AMGN $REGN $BIIB $CELG $GILD . $VRTX Big cap biotech names All green except VRTX
  • bRobert: $AMGN Look for this to bounce.soon. Best chart in sector. Also $VRTX $BIIB $REGN deserve close watch
  • issues: @bRobert $AAPL There was an article today about what stock mutual funds are buying. The article mentioned $CVS $UNP $BIIB $ROST $ABT $HCA $ABMD but did not mention $AAPL In the $200 million club was $BA $TMO $BSX $UAL but not $AAPL!
  • kus123: @bRobert $IBB $TLRY $AMGN $VRTX $BIIB $REGN $CELG $CARA Thanks for you post. How do I know stock is Speculative or not?
  • bRobert: @kus123 $IBB $TLRY $AMGN $VRTX $BIIB $REGN $CELG $CARA The large cap names have strong revenues/earnings. Large cah reserves and strong institutional support. Some like $AMGN even pay a 2.5% dividend. Many of the specs have never had positive earnings, are dependent on cash infusions for survival, and many also have a small stock float that is more subject to whipsaw action. Many are dependent upon the development of only a handful of unproven drugs at best. Biotech and drug companies in general have headline risk based on medical study results as well as legislative changes to a smaller degree. You have much greater safety in an ETF that contains manybig players with great cash flows and and a better instinct for survival.
  • bRobert: $GILD has quietly broken out. Shhhhhhhh. Big box biotech very perky . $CELG blasted Through the 50/200 yesterday. Nice WEEKLY reversal pattern setup with $110+ target Neckline $95 . $BIIB $REGN tight consolidation. Explosion hazard.
    $IBB . I'm a bit puzzled by the choice of biotech stocks reviewed in the strategy session. These are SPEC stocks. I own a few of them , but they .are not representative of the $IBB .I do not i ...
  • bRobert: @woodman $REGN Another deepy undervalued big cap biotech along with$BIIB $VRTX $CELG
  • bRobert: @shoredriver $IBB $LABU I am actually using $BIB for TRADING since it better reflects $IBB . I think IBB will outperform $XBI for a bit in a catchup trade. Big cap names are ready for HUGE runs $BIIB $VRTX $REGN $CELG $AMGN
  • bRobert: $IBB . I'm very overweight IBB which has measured move targets of $140/$160 . 16%/33% . above current levels. Not too shabby. Looking over individual names , some of the big box biotech .companies represent exceptional values. $BIIB . $REGN . could each easily run up 100 points. 25 - 30% . upside. $CELG is the value king given its high double digit revenue/earnings growth. selling at 9x 2019 earnings PEG <<1. $AMGN has a bullet proof chart. WEEKLY breakout target $230. 10% . $VRTX just completed a WEEKLY breakout with 20% upside. $210 To sum up, large cap biotech is set up for a very big move. The safest play with the highest % measured move upside is $IBB which also has liquid options available for those who like to play that way. I will continue to be VERY long until the charts change their bullish story. $CURE or $XLV have outperformed this year and are another option for those seeking a broader healthcare exposure.
  • tartan: @bRobert $IBB $BIIB $REGN $CELG $AMGN $VRTX $CURE $XLV I like ur thought process and admire ur longer term price target strat. I bot $AMGN earlier in month on a little breakout I bot @ 101.10 n sold @ 107.10. I will continue to watch and whether I in or not I hope ur targets get hit.
  • CraigReynolds: @bRobert $IBB $BIIB $REGN $CELG $AMGN $VRTX $CURE $XLV So many option plays. Is this a dart play, long play?
  • bRobert: @CraigReynolds $IBB $BIIB $REGN $CELG $AMGN $VRTX $CURE $XLV Leap calls . or call spreads in IBB. Expecting a $20 - $40 (long term) . move. Absolute gold in terms of option returns. Think 100% - 300% . and more. eg . Mar or Jul . 120's . Scale in. Sell some calls against after big runs. This will reduce your costs greatly and hedge a bit while remaining long. Currently IBB is at top of range on the daily. It may pull back a bit or do a range breakout. The WEEKLY has completed a range breakout. The MONTHLY has just broken out and has a flag with a $140 target. >$122.53 would be a nh and trigger with a whole lot of blue sky.
  • tlisakson: $BIIB - looking like a nice set up and start of breakout from squeeze.
  • bRobert: @tlisakson $BIIB The $IBB WEEKLY is breaking out. All will come along
  • bRobert: @traderbren $VRTX $IBB Tail wagging the dog. $AMGN early ph 3. $BIIB ready to explode. $REGN $GILD, $CELG .
  • bRobert: $REGN $VRTX $BIIB $CELG Other big cap tech with strong setups along with $AMGN This will push $IBB up or the $IBB will be the tail that wags the dogs.
  • bRobert: $BIIB Nice tight squeeze continues.Resolution will make for a powerful move. Bias up. Will change sides if proven wrong. Loyal to the chart, not the company
  • bRobert: $BIIB $REGN $VRTX I'm mostly in the $IBB but these are very bullish charts. $AMGN $CELG also. Big cap tech, Poised for very big gains.
  • BobbyG: $BIIB Breaking out of squeeze, following up from yesterday.
  • Runnie33: @BobbyG $BIIB LOL Just came in to post the same thing! Kind of sloppy chart, though.
  • BobbyG: $BIIB has been squeezing near the 50 DMA and looking to break out.
  • bRobert: @BobbyG $BIIB Biotech has broken out $IBB Expect most bullish biotech stocks to follow along
  • bRobert: @gwenzee $GILD Not my favorite of the group. These are $AMGN $VRTX $CELG $BIIB . $REGN . $SRPT spec play
  • gwenzee: @bRobert $GILD $AMGN $VRTX $CELG $BIIB $REGN $SRPT I have NP in any of these.
  • bRobert: $BIIB higher low. Watching for move >350.70 higher high
  • bRobert: $BIIB higher high/low. Nice weekly reversal set up. Many big cap biotech companies constructing bullish set ups. $VRTX $GILD $AMGN others or get them all $IBB
  • jwstich: $BIIB shares down about 35 dollars following release of results yesterday. The results raised a lot of questions. CEO to be on CNBC shortly.
  • Wykeman: $BIIB. Nice play
  • BobbyG: $BIIB Outta be moving. Great news!
  • bRobert: @BobbyG $BIIB $450 targeted move
  • bRobert: $IBB significantly outperforming $XBI Several big cap names with nice gains eg $BIIB $CELG . Big cap pharma $BMY $JNJ with nice gains
  • bigbartabs: @bRobert $IBB $XBI $BIIB $CELG $BMY $JNJ ... IBB beating XBI... it sure did. I sold my $LABU when it broke below yesterday's low. I probably won't play again until XBI pulls back to the 50dma... or gets above all the overhead traffic. Good luck brutha...

  • debeers: @CHOFF $BIIB -Well, if all you want is up 17% and that's your definition of TO THE MOON, EDITH, then maybe---but year over year I am looking for far more with the caveat that any hint of a PDUFA date for a dementia drug will spur an unreasonable ascent and a corresponding pull back if it doesn't meet primary endpoints in the trials. For me, the success of its multiple sclerosis drug is fine and anything else it has is gravy.
