We explore whether the biotech rally can continue and if Gilead Sciences has bottomed.

Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

I started the day with a discussion of the new administration's policies and why I believe there are headwinds to their passage over the next few months or quarters. 
Some tried-and-true indicators show what's really going on with the market.

Biotech Buoyed by Deal Talk Real Money Pro($)

M&A activity is in a serious upswing, and here are some names to watch.
Don't fight the trend of this stock.

Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

Static doesn't work in this industry. Pipelines work.
Market are still slightly down across the board as we approach the noon hour. Biotech is hanging in there well despite shellacking Gilead Sciences (GILD)  is taking after ratcheting down guidance. Helping the market is mid-cap concern Tesaro (TSRO) , which is currently halted and might be the next oncology concern to receive a buyout offer. Clovis Oncology (CLVS)  is rising in empathy as it has also been a much-rumored acquisition target in this hot space.

Scanning the Biotech Universe Real Money Pro($)

Markets are slightly down in the early going. Gilead Science GILD is off about 9% on dismal revenue guidance for 2017 and price target downward revisions at various analyst firms. If 2017 projections do not light a fire under company to use mergers and acquisitions to acquire some growth, I don't know what will. Gilead did end the quarter with more than $30 billion in cash on hand, so it definitely has the financial firepower to do so should it choose. Until then, stock is at best dead money.
I'm glad to be sitting in for Doug Kass on the Daily Diary over the next two days. There is plenty to talk about. Because we are the heart of earnings season, let's start with the quarterly results from two well-known large-cap concerns.
