Meanwhile, the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (NASDAQGM: IBB) , the largest biotech exchange traded fund by assets, was 1.3% higher Tuesday.

    Why Biotech Stocks May Reach New Highs

    Biotech stocks are nearing a big break out as measured by the SPDR S&P Biotech ETF ( XBI). The group is already having a strong start to 2018, quietly outpacing not only the S&P 500 but the most talked about sectors in the market, technology ( XLK) and consumer stocks ( XLY). The biotech ETF is sitting right below a significant resistance level at $97.90, the previous all-time high for the ETF, and should that price rise above technical resistance, it would mark a big breakout.

    Biotech Sector Continue to Dazzle Despite Market Distress

    Biotech stocks—with their binary outcomes and potential FDA approvals or denials—should whip around, pending various outcomes. It doesn’t help that President Trump (seemingly at random) decides periodically that we all pay too much for drugs. For biotech stocks to work on the long side investors’ risk appetite would have to take off or a major approval could drive the stocks up.

    Will Big Data Lead to Big Biotech Returns?

    Big Data could improve results in the biopharmaceutical industry—if companies can improve their use and avoid pitfalls, writes Jefferies' Michael Yee in a report issued today. The proper implementation of new data and analytics tools could "accelerate the probability of success" in the drug industry and boost process efficiencies, driving billions in cost savings, according to Yee. In this way, using Big Data to "find better drugs at a lower cost" will put drug makers at an advantage by increasing return on investment. Companies that are using Big Data include Amgen (AMGN), Biogen (BIIB), Celgene (CELG), Gilead Sciences (GILD), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Eli Lilly (LLY), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN).

    'Right To Try' Law Signed By Trump Increases Patient Access To Experimental Drugs

    Under the new law, terminally ill patients who are ineligible for clinical trials and have exhausted all treatment options will now be allowed to test experimental therapies not yet approved by the FDA. In providing a workaround for the FDA’s long and arduous trial processes, the law accelerates the time it takes for patients to access a new formula and may make it easier for clinical-stage pharmaceuticals developing orphan drugs to test their products.

    President Trump’s big drug price speech boosts pharma stocks

    After weeks of build-up, drug industry watchers began to have real concerns about President Donald Trump’s big drug price speech on Friday. Many of the changes that were mentioned on Friday had been raised before by his administration, including drug price negotiation for certain government programs. Other proposals seemed unlikely to significantly bring down drug prices in the near-term, which Trump described as a goal of the plan.

    Could Big Biotech Earnings Be a Bust?

    Singh's more conservative on Gilead Sciences (GILD), writing that its HIV drug Biktarvy is seeing a good launch, but not as strong Genvoya, and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN), where he sees a strong second half in terms of regulatory approvals as balanced by "burgeoning operating expenses and negative sentiment." He has Perform ratings on both stocks. Moving down the line, he's more bullish on mid- and small-cap biotechs, which are not only benefitting from M&A in the sector, but should also "continue to positively diverge from large-cap biotech" in first-quarter earnings results as well.

    Tech, Biotech Rife With Buys, M&A, Disruptive Trends

    Tom Vandeventer, portfolio manager of the Tocqueville Opportunity Fund (TOPPX), which is up nearly 10% so far this year, thinks that trend will continue. Tech and biotech are two major themes running through the fund’s portfolio, which Vandeventer told Barron’s is indicative of the fact that “there are a lot of disruptive technologies that are coming to fruition” in both sectors. The fund focuses more on small- and mid-cap stocks, meaning that M&A is a theme throughout his holdings, in both tech and biotech, bolstered by industry trends (the move to the cloud, the rise of gene-editing therapies, respectively), as well the fact that larger players are flush with cash—thanks to lower corporate taxes and repatriated capital—to facilitate acquisitions.

    Better Days Ahead for Big Biotechs

    The first quarter is traditionally not a strong one for biotech earnings for a host of reasons—including fewer shipping days, inventory reductions after year-end price increases, weather disruptions, and annual copay resets in many health insurance plans.

    Bigger Biotechs Bound for Earnings Bounty

    Just as Barron's predicted, this year has seen smaller biotech stocks outperform their larger peers, with the SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (XBI) up 15% year-to-date, while the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) has fallen 1.2%.  Now, as we gear up for first-quarter earnings in the sector, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey sees a number of potentially better-than-expected results ahead. The team, led by analyst Yatin Suneja, writes that investors appear "poised to reward companies with good financial performance." He believes that positive pricing trends, along with tailwinds from foreign exchange and moderate expectations on the Street can drive outperformance, even if seasonality is a headwind. Suneja thinks that among big biotechs, Alexion Pharmaceuticals (ALXN), BioMarin Pharmaceuticals (BMRN), Celgene (CELG), Exelixis (EXEL), Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN), and Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT) have the best chance of reporting better-than-expected sales in the quarter, while he sees a more in-line quarters for Biogen (BIIB) and Incyte (INCY).
