    Single Best Biotech Buy in Years

    I have followed biotech stocks exclusively for
    many years and while I've had my share of
    disappointments (e.g., IPIC), I like to think that my
    handicapping skills are quite honed. (Can't say the same thing
    about my money management though!)

    stating that I think SUPG at these levels is the single
    best biotech buying opportunity I've seen since SEPR's
    early years (sold that one way too early - twice). I
    don't have any new info on the company to add, but the
    data is published -as are the sales numbers for Gemzar

    pipeline, healthy balance sheet and committment to the
    shareholder's is also a matter of record (e.g,. latest CC,
    stock re-purchase program). As an aside, I am curious
    when, if ever, management will pull the trigger and
    start to re-purchase stock. Given the drop in price,
    let them buy back 1.5m shares now!

    financial ill health, I've learned that there is no sure
    thing in biotech - ever. However, I stand by my
    statement that SUPG today is the single best buy in the
    biotech area of the past several years. And I bought some
