Changes to Jubak's PicksBuy Cell Genesys. This is a highly speculative pick. But when you're looking at the seasonal strength of the biotech sector in the fall and the kinds of worries that are bogging down drug stocks, speculative isn't a bad way to go. A small stock like Cell Genesys will get more pop from any move up in the sector than its bigger brethren. And because the company's leading drugs are still years from market, the stock price is driven by research news from the fall wave of medical conferences, not by worries over things like Medicare reimbursement.
Please note that due to factors including low market capitalization and/or insufficient public float, we consider Cell Genesys to be a small-cap stock. You should be aware that such stocks are subject to more risk than stocks of larger companies, including greater volatility, lower liquidity and less publicly available information, and that postings such as this one can have an effect on their stock prices.
