Pharma & Healthcare
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)

Pharma & Healthcare
TOP PICK
Biotech. Dominant drug for CF treatment. Exceedingly strong growth profile, with 2022 estimate for 40% earnings growth. Working on a compound for acute pain that's not addictive. Technically way outperformed the biotech group. Now there's strength in the group and the market. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $307.75)

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We again reiterate this long known developer of treatment for cystic fibrosis as a TOP PICK. Its diversified portfolio of therapeutic drugs continues to pursue treatment in other major diseases such as Type I diabetes and muscular dystrophy. Recently reported earnings beat analyst expectations by 30% and the company maintains a ROE of 31%. We also like how the company has continued to increase cash reserves, while buying back stock. We recommend trailing up the stop (from $185) to $200, looking to achieve $258 -- upside potential over 16%. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $257.41)

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly VRTX is a previous Top Pick that had two setbacks that caused us to recommend moving to the sidelines. However, its diversified portfolio of therapeutic drugs continues to play a leading role in the potential treatment of cystic fibrosis worldwide. It trades at 17x earning compared to peers at 43x. It has been adding cash reserves that are now estimated to exceed $8 billion. We would buy this with a stop loss at $165, looking to achieve $275 -- upside over 46%.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly VRTX is a pharmaceutical company that is world renowned in its treatment for cystic fibrosis. The company is estimated to have increased its cash position by almost $2 billion, leaving it plenty in the tank to develop other life changing drugs likes ones being developed for sickle cell disease and AAT deficiency. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $200, looking to achieve $290 -- over 25% upside potential. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $289.66)

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Nov 14/19, Up 16%) This shot up from its base around $175 starting last October. No longer owns it. Pharma is fairly predictable, buy may be kicked around by US politicians during the campaign. He suggests entering the pharma space now.

TOP PICK
They specialize in serious diseases. It is volatile. You could just own the XBB-T. He thinks our life span is going to expand significantly and these guys are going to be part of it. (Analysts’ price target is $226.45)
