House Cleaning Done!

I did a bit more house cleaning today and swept away Boston Scientific (Ticker: BSX) at $16.79 and generated a net loss of 47.82%. I used the cash from this sale and purchased Master Card International (Ticker: MA) at $100.79. I’ll continue to scale down my biotech holdings just a bit, but not at these bargain prices. The big cap biotechs are cheap, cheap, and cheap! Genentech (Ticker: DNA) trading at 30X next years earnings (30% grower), Genzyme (Ticker: GENZ) trading at 20X next years earnings (20% grower) and Amgen (Ticker: AMGN) selling at 15X next years earnings (15% grower)… Do you see the pattern? These are solid growth companies selling at 1X their growth rate. If they go any lower, it’s back up the truck time!
