BUY

PPH, an ETF for pharma producers, is breaking out and near a record. VTX and Eli Lilly are leaders in this space and Vertex has a great product for Cystic Fibrosis therapeutics. It is growing well and not too expensive.

A high-quality biopharma with a strong cystic fibrosis drug. Are trying to get into other franchises like diabetes treatments. Will do well long-run. Trades at 23x with 11% earnings growth, so you can take some profits now. Had a good run, so take some money off the table.

TOP PICK
It is in the biotech sector which came under pressure18 months ago. The sector found a footing in June and has held well above lows while the market is selling off. In general there are great bio technologies coming to market. Specifically it is a leading producer of a Cystic Fibrosis treatment that continues to proliferate around global health care systems. It is head and shoulders over what was available previously. It is a defensive stock because earnings are not cyclical and it is growing at 25% per year as well as trading at 18X next year's earnings. With a 74 billion market cap it just made a 5 year high which is very significant. (Analysts’ price target is $310.80)
