Apple Conference? Forget It. Biotech Is What Really Matters: StockTwits

$ARIA ... this is positive news for "future" growth ? RoyalHouseOfRock (@RoyalHouseOfRock) Jun. 2 at 10:00 AM

MannKind shares rose nearly 3% ahead of the company's presentation at the Jefferies 2014 Global Health Care Conference, scheduled for today at 2:30 p.m. Investors hoped to hear positive news about Afrezza, MannKind's inhaled insulin treatment for diabetics.

Afrezza is pending FDA-approval and was overwhelmingly recommended by an FDA subcommittee earlier this year, despite concerns about lung complications with the drug. Investors believe that the drug could take over the $45 billion diabetes-management market, as many diabetics would prefer a treatment that doesn't involve daily shots. Sentiment on the stock is 97% bullish, according to StockTwits analytics.

$PCYC This is a good stock to be in if you are not on a 1 - 2 day time horizon. Great data, FDA approved, sales ramping up. ? Christian Balmaceda (@balmacyclics) Jun. 2 at 10:40 AM

Risk is commercialization and potential competitors. That being said, Rx up and great data show Imbruvica can compete vs. Gild/Abbv. ? Christian Balmaceda (@balmacyclics) Jun. 2 at 10:43 AM
