Up to 144 New Stock Opportunities Make This Sector Ripe for Profits

*Editor’s Note: Our Catalyst Calendar event is available to view right now. Watch the recording of the event here.

During my analyst coverage in 2018, I covered the biotech sector very closely.

In doing so, I learned two very important things. 

The first is that the success of an individual medical technology (medtech) or biotechnology (biotech) company isn’t directly tied to the greater cyclical forces that often affect other stocks. 

The second thing I learned is that over the course of time, the medtech and biotech industries offer investors the most chances at triple-digit gains in any given month. This is because medtech and biotech stocks are catalyst-driven.

Let me show you a few examples. 

A Sector That Is Always Ripe for Profits

On April 5, 2018, I recommended a lesser-known biotech formerly named Seattle Genetics, now named Seagen Inc. (NASDAQ: SGEN), at a price of $53.38. By the end of the year, the stock had nearly doubled in value after rising over $80 per share.

The catalyst back in 2018 was an FDA approval on its Adcetris therapy for the treatment of Hodgkin's lymphoma. More specifically, this therapy represented the first FDA-approved regimen for frontline treatment of Stage 3 and 4 Hodgkin's lymphoma in over 40 years.

That’s significant. 

The chart above covers the following five months as the market got wind of the drug’s efficacy and effectiveness.

Even despite a massive sell-off as the herd took profits late in 2018, shares today are near new all-time highs at $139. 

It’s important to know that these opportunities are not random events. 

On May 23, 2018, I recommended Merck & Co. (NYSE: MRK) at $58.45. By late December 2019, shares were trading just shy of $90.

The reason for the pop?

In 2018, MRK was close to releasing a new cancer drug called Keytruda. Trial data was very promising, which was very important because Keytruda had the potential to treat numerous different forms of cancer.

That catalyst powered MRK shares to some nice gains and quick profits for those who took my advice at the time.

And there’s more. 

Just a month later, on June 27, 2018, I suggested my followers take a swing on Inspire Medical Systems (NYSE: INSP) at a price of $36.32. The company had just IPO’d a few months prior, and the catalyst for big gains was that it had the only FDA-approved internal sleep apnea device on the market. 

The product eliminates the need for clunky masks and is monitored via handheld remote. When activated during sleep, the device opens the user's airways, allowing for a full night's sleep. The product was revolutionary and only just recently approved — the perfect catalyst for gains.

Today, INSP trades around $180, representing an open gain of over 399% so far.

I could go on with the gains folks like you can score in the biotech and medtech sectors, such as Amgen Inc. (NASDAQ: AMGN) at 46%, Ocular Therapeutix (NASDAQ: OCUL) at 92%, or even the Ark Genomic Revolution ETF (ARKG), which is led by future tech investment guru Cathy Wood and, despite pullback in all Ark ETFs recently, is still up over 146% over the past two years as of this past Tuesday. 

The point is if you know how to spot the catalyst before it ignites a surge, you can make a pretty profit in a relatively short time frame. 

Some of these time frames can be extremely short, and if you have stakes in the even more explosive opportunities, you can make some serious cash.

Take for instance some recent wins from my colleague and market analyst Keith Kohl:

  • A two-week 225% payday on Intra-Cellular Therapies
  • A one-week gain of 60% on Durect Corporation
  • A 25% winner on Allied Healthcare Products in just five days

Plus many more.
