The institutions who created the 2014 bio-bubble are going to cash. Momentum is gone from the market as investors move from speculation to quality and value. The XBI ETF holds the most speculative biopharmaceutical stocks and it is in “free-fall” approaching its April 15 lows of $115. The next technical signal would be a double bottom.
We recommended a 30% cash position in life science portfolios as the early April sell-off commenced and new buys are to be avoided .
