3 Top Biotech Stocks Under $5

The biotech field is littered with stocks under $5 that probably won't walk away from the crash landings that made them look so cheap. You'll be glad to know that sifting through the wreckage to find hidden gems is one daunting task that you don't need to slog through.I recently noticed a few top biotech stocks you can buy for about the same price as an iced cappuccino. Geron Corporation (NASDAQ: GERN) , Rigel Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: RIGL) , and Agenus Inc. (NASDAQ: AGEN) don't have an...

3 Beaten-Up Biotech Stocks: Are They Bargains?

The iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology Index has tacked on a healthy gain of around 15% so far this year, without any help from Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLDX) , Agenus Inc. (NASDAQ: AGEN) , or Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: PGNX) . All three of these relatively small biotechs have slipped by double-digit percentages in 2017.Is the pessimism justified, or has the market underestimated the potential value drivers within these companies' drug development pipelines? Let's take a co...

Here's Why Agenus Inc. Stock Slipped 13.6% in July

Shares of Agenus Inc. (NASDAQ: AGEN) , a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company, fell 13.6% in July according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. Investors viewed a clinical-trial failure reported by AstraZeneca as a harbinger of sorrow for similar candidates in its own pipeline.Aside from an adjuvant featured in GlaxoSmithKline's shingles-vaccine candidate, Agenus Inc.'s future hinges on success for new drug candidates that inhibit a cancer cell's ability to exploit the CTLA-4 and PD-...

3 Stocks That Are Ridiculously Cheap Right Now

When a stock goes on sale, and the stock market offers you the chance to buy it for less than it's worth, that's what we investors call a "value stock." But what do you call a stock that's selling for a lot less than it's worth?Is it ridiculous to even ask that question in a market where everything seems expensive? Maybe, maybe not. Those of us who've been around the block a few times, though, have seen the stock market misprice great businesses again and again over the years and even in markets...

Better Buy: Agenus Inc. vs. Kite Pharma

Cancer therapy is not only the largest drug market by a wide margin, but it's also the fastest growing. Specifically, EvaluatePharma expects cancer drug and therapy sales to rise at a compound annual growth of 12.7% over the course of 2016 to 2022. Interestingly enough, the bulk of this growth is forecast to stem from the red-hot area known as immuno-oncology (I-O), or therapies designed to enlist a patient's own immune system in the battle against cancer. I-O offers patients a more targeted tre...

3 Stocks With Exelixis-Like Return Potential

Over the past year, Exelixis' (NASDAQ: EXEL) stock has more than doubled in value because of the successful commercial launch of advanced kidney cancer drug Cabometyx.

Better Buy: Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. vs. Agenus Inc.

Immuno-oncology (I-O) development is a sizzling-hot area of focus for drug development these days. While many major pharmaceutical companies have either launched or are testing I-O drugs, several clinical-stage biotechs also are developing promising candidates. Celldex Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CLDX) and Agenus (NASDAQ: AGEN) are key players in that group.So far in 2017, however, neither stock has performed very well. Both have fallen around 13% year to date. Over the long run, however, Celldex ...

Better Buy: Agenus Inc. vs. Celldex Therapeutics

Agenus Inc (NASDAQ: AGEN) and Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLDX) bear an uncanny resemblance to each other. Both clinical-stage biotechs are focused on developing novel cancer therapies and reported clinical-trial failures with vaccine candidates in development for the treatment of brain cancer.If strikingly similar trial failures weren't freaky enough, the two companies' market values are nearly identical -- right around $350 million. But, when you dig in, the two companies have some...
