Pharmacist investor for 10 yrs. Mostly biotech/specialty. Oncology generally too hard. Stay diversified but overweight cheap large caps that make ton of $ as a hedge. Index too. Keep the spec bios under 5% allocation to sleep at night!
Formerly spending a long career with a major multinational investment firm in a stock trading capacity, I am now retired and earn most of my income through dividends and by collecting option premiums in my investment portfolios.
Primary interest is Bio with intriguing pipelines that have large growth potential. I attempt to hold >50% of positions LT unless negative data, mgmt. concerns, or known negative events. Diversify and only trade in spec what you can lose.
