    Pslabowski, I hope your operations went well and you're on the road to recovery. And hope your recovery is a relaxing and restful one. All the best.

    Maybe stocks are overpriced and we are due for a corr- - - but I see the recent sell-offs as ways of working off the overbought condition.

    Hear, hear! The bull looks a tad under pressure this year. The Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 support levels are being tested and re-tested so who knows when we'll finally get out of the woods. FBIOX and biotech in general are holding up well. And I won't say the next line out of fear of jinxing us but look up the historical prices and y'all know where we're at. Good luck y'all!

    One of my New Year's resolution is that I won't be looking and tracking this fund's prices daily.... Umm... looking like I already fail mightily at that. ;)

    Aye! What a lousy close. Good to see you too, Psla! I've been trying to take a long view and not make rash decisions until the cap gain payout.. If Fido had delayed paying out the cap gains until this week's drop, we'd all have ended up with more shares, no? Hmm, I think/hope this is just an overreaction to GILD's little competition. Yes, this sector definitely looks oversold. Have a Happy and Safe Holiday to you all.

    I'm hoping to see low volumes in this selloff. The big guys are off to their holiday festivities so stock moves tend to be exaggerated during holiday weeks.

    Happy Holidays to you all.

    No such luck for tax-deferred accounts. There are some of us who don't have direct access to these Fido funds in our 401k's and my family income is above the ranges for married couples permissible for IRAs, Roth IRAs or the likes. I live in California so numbers don't mean anything. High incomes are offset by high cost of living and housing. :-/

    A gain is a gain, taxes are part of life and I ain't gonna beeech no more. :)

    So ... basically, your value remains the same but your purchase value goes up and your $ or %gain goes down. And you have to pay hecka lotta taxes on your cap gains and dividends. Who invented this cap gain &$@#??? Kidding aside, a gain is good! Biotech is the place to be, 2015 and beyond. Good luck and prosperity to all longs!

    To those who hold other Fidelity select funds such as healthcare, high tech computer,.. eg FSPHX, FDGRX, FSCSX, ... cap gains & dividends are going in this weekend so expect to see a lot of reds and more fuzzy math. :-)

    2 cents, psla!

    I had an earlier post that disappeared. In it, I wrote that I hoped Kaul had a good sense to unload AEGR earlier today before it took a haircut. Or maybe this fund's own selling contributed to the stock's collapse. Now I guess the Sept 30 holdings aren't much different than the current ones.

    Interesting alright. Looks like FBIOX may be getting a trick rather than a treat.
    A lot of reds in its portfolio, namely AEGR Aegerion which is currently down almost 41% ???
