Celgene Most Impressive On Day 1 of J.P. Morgan Healthcare Confab

SAN FRANCISCO ( TheStreet) -- Celgene (CELG - Get Report) was a big winner on the first day of the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference.

The big-cap biotech is the traditional kick-off presentation at this closely followed conference, and this year, the company set a high bar for its competitors with strong financial guidance (including a bullish 2017 forecast for the first time) and positive psoriasis results from studies involving its experimental drug apremilast.

Celgene shares rose more than 4% to $85.73 on Monday and the stock was up again in Tuesday's pre-market session, bolstered by some analyst upgrades.

Gilead Sciences (GILD - Get Report) and Biogen Idec (BIIB - Get Report) also presented at the J.P. Morgan conference on Monday. While both offered confident outlooks for the coming year, Celgene was a standout. Amgen (AMGN - Get Report) presents at the conference later today.
