    Biogen Is the Right Alzheimer’s Stock … At the Wrong Time

    On Friday, Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB) shares soared on news that one of its Alzheimer’s drug trials was showing tremendous promise.

    Hitting cancer early: AstraZeneca's bid to outmaneuver rivals

    AstraZeneca (AZN.L) suffered its biggest daily share price drop a year ago after a key cancer drug trial failed amid feverish speculation the chief executive might quit. Soriot and his team are increasingly confident that while AstraZeneca may have lost one part of the battle for cancer market dominance, it can still win elsewhere by targeting tumors before they have spread around the body. The idea that immunotherapy may actually work best in less sick patients is logical, since the immune system's natural role is to destroy nascent tumors.
