Feeling Better About Biotech

The next big cure for a complex, scary disease is unlikely to come from old-school pharma. It’s likely coming from biotech. Scientists, investors, and patients are all banking on the $93 billion biotech industry.[1] It’s outpaced Big Pharma in finding treatments for cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and other diseases. The FDA approved 43 drugs in 2012, a 20% jump from the previous year.[4] Big Pharma has responded by snapping up promising biotech and smaller pharmaceutical companies, at lofty valuations, with premiums for several public companies in excess of 50%.[2] In fact, 2013 was a big year for the biotech industry, with $29B in M&A deals through the 1st half of 2013.[3] This motif includes only biotech companies with at least two years of cash flow to help screen out companies at greater risk of losing money.
