Rayno Life Science Small Cap Picks-Recent Updates

On August 11 we suggested that traders  and investors look at several speculative biotech stocks that could rally in Q4 2014. Small cap biotechs track two ETFs : IWM the Russell 2000 Index and the XBI, a biotech ETF weighted toward smaller caps. We reviewed these stocks again in later posts and on Friday November 14. These stocks and their initial price points were:

Celldex Therapeutics (CLDX) -$15

Celldex is up 33% today to $18.94 on results from their brain tumor immunotherapy trial. The Phase 2 ReACT study showed statistically significant survival benefit in patients with glioblastoma multiforme. The Celldex drug halted cancer progression in 9 out of 33 patients.

Fibrocell Bioscience (FCSC) -$2.75

The stock has struggled as it approaches $3 but we still think it is a good trade even a long term play with its autologous fibroblast technology for treating rare and serious skin disorders.

Karyopharm Therapeutics (KPTI)-$37.31

KPTI is volatile but holding above $40 with a broad trading range below and above. The Company is focused in nuclear transport technology with a pipeline of two lead products.The stock has 4 BUY ratings.
