A one-stop source for investing in biotech-with detailed coverage of the science, the business, the players, and the strategies for one of today's most promising (and volatile) industries
To invest in biotech is to invest in the future, and as such, investors need to learn the nuances of the science they're putting their money on. The core asset of biotech companies is knowledge, and sound investment decisions are impossible without an understanding of this complex science. That's where The Biotech Investor's Bible fits in. This much-needed, one-of-a-kind resource simplifies the complex science surrounding the business of biotech and clarifies subtle distinctions within the context of their financial repercussions. The book explains the basics of genetics, patents, and therapies; and teaches investors how to value biotech companies and their state-of-the art products and technology. The Biotech Investor's Bible offers an informative summary of the relatively short history of the industry and provides a comprehensive review of various industry sectors.
George Wolff (St. Pete Beach, FL) is a successful consultant advising clients who are investing in biotech stocks. He has assessed well over 150 biotech companies and has issued a number of valuable white papers that have charted the success of the hottest biotech companies.

Like the industry itself, the fundamentals of biotech investing are unique. Because the financial characteristics of biotechnology investments are unlike those of any other sector on the market, few analysts and investors predicted the industry's recent, dramatic gains and even fewer profited from it.
The Biotech Investor's Bible is a practical guide to the essentials of biotechnology investment. Along with the most promising investing strategies, George Wolff provides an overview of an industry that many observers expect to emerge over the next century as the largest and most important business sector in the world.
Wolff first focuses on the unique financial forces that drive biotech markets. With this approach, you'll gain a better understanding of the structure of the industry and its many processes, setting the stage for an analysis of sensible investment criteria. He then simplifies complex scientific concepts and technical terminology so you can quickly cut through industry jargon and make informed investment decisions.
To help you get in as close as pos-sible on biotech's ground floor, Wolff prepares you with:
* Guidelines and commonsense methods for picking companies
* Details on new technologies and innovations
* Advice on how to pick lesser known companies with unrealized value
* Insights on how to structure a biotech portfolio
* A breakdown of 185 major biotech companies
Today, more than five thousand companies are engaged in the development of biotechnology worldwide. The work they do will fundamentally change life in this century, and every investor has a vested interest in knowing how the next industrial revolution will affect their holdings. No sector, from oil to insurance, from mining to medicine, will remain untouched.
