Biotechnology stocks continue to move higher, while large-cap pharmaceutical stocks remain stagnant amid slower growth. 

Gilead Sciences (GILD) is the "cheapest drug company I follow," Cramer concluded, before adding that Regeneron's cholesterol drug could become a household product in the future.
