Anyone In CRISPR stocks?
« on: March 27, 2017, 09:31:11 PM »
Looking to dump a chunk of my "fun" stash into some long-term hopefuls within the next week.  I've noticed that CRSP, EDIT, and NTLA are all some decent looking options that are banking on what we are all wishing to be the 21st centuries top healthcare innovation while still in its infancy.  I figured a dozen shares of each just to sit wouldn't hurt just to see what the future holds.. at least while I await Caribou's IPO.

What do you guys think?  Anyone hop into individual stocks anymore?

Just be careful!  CRISPR isn't a new or unknown technology anymore, and the expectations of future growth will likely already be included in the price of the stock.  Moving forward, the biotech companies that succeed will be the ones with business acumen, not necessarily the ones with the coolest new application.  You don't want to be putting your money into the next Theranos.

With the changes in patent case law in recent years - how will companies maintain some market exclusivity?

A better use for CRSP is the usage in Vanguard Total Stock Market's summary:
"Seeks to track the performance of the CRSP US Total Market Index."

Well it looks like last night was a good night to pull the trigger.  Only $450 total in all 3 companies guys, not going to be the end of me if the worst comes to fruition.
