A few posts ago we re-iterated FBT as our top core portfolio pick. It is an ETF that is up 6.58% over 5 days and 33% YTD. FBT is a core Rayno holding because it consistently outperforms funds and ETFs, has a large cap weighting, and somehow manages to have the big winners like Biogen Idec BIIB), Intermune (ITMN and Pharmacyclics (PCYC).The market cap of FBT is $1.3B.
On August 11, we recommended investor buy small and mid cap biotech stocks now for a Q4 rally and our new picks were:
