Biotech investors may be missing out on some very lucrative drugs and therapies. As today’s article notes, while “It is common for large-cap biotech investments…to feature exposure to companies working on treatments for well-known diseases…the growing unmet medical needs universe is going, well, mostly unmet by traditional biotech investments.” Case in point: Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) – a potentially fatal liver disease affecting upwards of 16 million Americans and for which there is currently no approved drug therapy. So how can biotech investors access the opportunity presented by NASH and other unmet medical needs? CLICK HERE.

For these five biotechs – as well as a couple of runners-up with under-100% (but still high) upside potential – CLICK HERE.

The biotech highlighted in today’s article is the kind of stock that the author would normally advise investors to stay away from. In this case, however, he acknowledges that “this company could be worth quite a lot in the future, if it plays its cards right.” He proceeds to detail the company’s most interesting product – an anti-aging product that he believes has the potential to take it from micro-cap to industry leader (and which is drawing in a number of wealthy investors).
