Adam Feuerstein is a senior columnist at TheStreet in charge of covering biotechnology and pharmaceutical stocks.

Feuerstein has been a financial journalist for more than 20 years. He joined TheStreet in 2001, leaving in 2005 for a two-year stint as a biotech analyst for a New York-based investment management firm. Feuerstein rejoined TheStreet in 2007. Prior to his work at TheStreet, Feuerstein wrote about Internet startups and business software for Upside.com. Covering the dot-com boom and bust of the 1990s and early 2000s made Feuerstein very cynical, a trait he applies to great effect by highlighting the often-overlooked risks of biotech stock investing. In what can only be considered a high compliment, a particularly promotional sell-side analyst once warned his clients that Feuerstein "attacks viciously".

Expand Bio +

Feuerstein lives near Boston with his wife, two kids and a yellow lab-golden retriever named Max. When Feuerstein is not writing article and blog posts for TheStreet, he's tweeting. In fact, when Feuerstein is working, he's tweeting. All the time. He also runs, bikes, watches a lot of English soccer matches (Go Spurs!) and loves to cook.
