In this daily bar chart of BIIB, below, we can see a three-month sideways pattern after the huge downside price gaps in March. Trading volume has been higher since late March than it was in previous months. The daily On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line chopped sideways in April and May but it has strengthened this month and suggests that buyers of BIIB have become more aggressive.

Do you want to find the next Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) or Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN)? My advice is that you should set your sights lower, not higher and put some cash to work in three down, but not out heavyweight biotech stocks for the next big thing in investing. Let me explain.It has been a good week so far for the broader markets. The Nasdaq Composite, S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average have broken out of short bases barely discernible on the weekly chart and back within spitting distance of their respective all-time-highs following May's abrupt correction. It has been a nice period for biotech stocks as well.The Vaneck Vectors Biotech ETF (NYSEARCA:BBH) is up nearly 3.50% through Tuesday's close compared to gains of roughly 1% to 2% for the broader averages. But as any investor with a passing interest in the markets knows, the outperformance in biotech stocks has been anything but a recurring theme these past couple years.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Hot Stocks to Buy for a Seemingly Sleepy Summer The good news is markets are cyclical. Even legendary investments such as AMZN or the sacrosanct AAPL stock have been known to correct for periods lasting not weeks, but months and even years. With that in mind, it's time to consider adding these three large-cap biotech stocks into your portfolio. Amgen (AMGN) Click to EnlargeAmgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) is a biotech heavyweight that also happens to be the sector's largest capitalization outfit with a valuation of about $110 billion.Following a recent sales and earnings beat, this reasonably-priced biotech giant, which pays investors nearly 3.5% in quarterly dividends, has now put together a bottom on the monthly price chart.Specifically, AMGN stock has formed a confirmed pivot low, which reaffirms its longstanding uptrend after a correction of several months. And with plenty of lateral, angular and Fibonacci price supports, as well as an oversold crossover signal to confirm the bottom, this biotech stock is a buy today.The TradeBuy AMGN stock at current prices. Set a stop-loss beneath support below $160, but expect shares to hit new highs in 2019's second half. Gilead Sciences (GILD) Click to EnlargeIt has been a rough few years for Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD), one the sector's largest names, but things are looking up for GILD stock lately.A recent earnings report that reiterated the company's full-year guidance and offered a modest year-over-year uptick in sales and profits looks promising for Gilead shares, which have been absolutely pummeled over the last four years.Technically, shares are trading slightly above multiple inside candlesticks following a double bottom pattern of about one and a half years. With the formation finding support off the 50% retracement level and a supportive-looking stochastics set-up signaling better months and years ahead, GILD stock looks good to buy right now. * 10 'Buy-and-Hold' Stocks to Own Forever The TradeBuy GILD stock at current levels with an initial stop-loss below $59. On the upside, $85 - $90 looks like a good area for profit-taking while allowing this down-and-out value stock some room to run. Biogen (BIIB) Click to EnlargeMuch like GILD stock, shares of sector heavyweight Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB) have been under extreme technical duress the past few years.Most recently, the pain in BIIB stock came after the company's announcement that it was axing a drug to treat Alzheimer's following poor results. The suffering came despite the fact that BIIB posted stronger-than-forecast results in late April.On the price chart, this biotech stock's technical beating since 2015 has resulted in a possible four-year long double-bottom pattern that's finding support in-between the 50% and 62% retracement levels. Coupled with an oversold stochastics that is a hair's breadth away from signaling a bullish crossover, confirmation of the pivot low looks imminent.The TradeBuy BIIB stock above May's candle high of $238.17 to confirm the pattern bottom. I'd suggest an initial stop beneath $214 and to take partial profits in-between $300 - $310.Disclosure: Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management currently do not own positions in any of the securities mentioned in this article.

Shares of Zynerba Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ZYNE) are surging Tuesday after the company landed a patent for the treatment of autism spectrum disorder. Specifically, the patent covers treatment using cannabidiol, which will surely add a spark to ZYNE stock.Source: Zynerba PharmaceuticalsThe stock was up 8% in pre-market trading and there's potential for this name to run even further once investors catch wind of it. We're seeing that play out now, with shares up 18% in Tuesday morning trading.With a market capitalization just under $250 million, it's not a well-known player like Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB) or Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG). In the same light, it's not even a well-known cannabis stock, like Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC) or Aurora Cannabis (NYSE:ACB).InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsZynerba was issued U.S. Patent No. 10,314,792, which is titled, "Treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder with Cannabidiol" and runs through 2038. So if the treatment is successful, ZYNE stock will have the rights to this treatment for almost two decades. The PatentZynerba is building out a portfolio of different treatments based around its potential cannabidiol product Zygel. I say "potential" because there's still a lot of work and progress needed before this becomes a staple in the medicine cabinet, so to say. * 7 Dark Horse Stocks Winning the Race in 2019 The patented treatment "includes claims directed to methods of treating autism spectrum disorder by administering a therapeutically effective amount of synthetic cannabidiol." It was granted during the enrollment period of a Phase 2 BRIGHT study, which is intended to evaluate "the safety, tolerability and efficacy of Zygel for the treatment of children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder."Will it work? At this stage it's impossible to say, but there is promise. GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GWPH) has successfully gained traction -- even here in the U.S. -- with its cannabidiol treatment for epileptic seizures. So if Zynerba can show similar successes with its treatment, it may open the door to other possible treatments in the future using its Zygel product. Trading ZYNE Stock Click to Enlarge The big boost in ZYNE stock comes as little surprise. After all, it's got all the right buzzwords working in its favor, even if the company has good intentions. Wall Street latches to these trends and investors aren't afraid to jump on board if they think there's opportunity. That's even as Phase-2 testing has yet to begin.ZYNE stock chart is one of only a few that could make a double-digit gain look fairly modest. Above you can see how it moved over downtrend resistance (blue line) on Monday. Now it's pushing through $13, as well as the 20-day moving average.Can this thing ignite through $14 and tag its 2019 high near $16.50? Yes, it can. There's no guarantee that it will, but these sort of momentum boosters can give a huge shot in the arm to small-cap stocks.Whether that justifies a move this powerful, ZYNE stock investors certainly have a reason to be excited. But there's a lot of room on the upside before Zynerba stock exhausts itself.On the downside, I want to see $11 to $11.50 hold as support.This marks the 50-day moving average (which is trending higher) as well as the 38.2% retracement. That said, it would be highly discouraging to see ZYNE stock lose all of Tuesday's gains. Bottom Line on ZYNE StockNorth of $13 and the 20-day would be best, but let's see how it trades throughout the day and the rest of this week.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.
