Biotech Ideas: Top Biotech Stocks with Bullish Institutional Trends

Research  these Stocks on Kapitall’s Playground Now

The biotech business is shrouded with uncertainty – from awaiting FDA decisions or the results of a clinical trial, or from determining whether the company can even capitalize on its latest scientific discovery – and this uncertainty is reflected in how quickly investors change their minds about biotech firms.

Because of how easily day-to-day changes can affect stock prices, many investors consider this industry too difficult to track. We can therefore assume that qualified investors who brave the sector are keeping a very close watch on it.

Applying Institutional Buying Trends

Interested to know what informed investors are thinking about a stock? One of the most telling indicators is net institutional purchases. Institutions, such as hedge funds and investment banks often invest hundreds of thousands of dollars or more at one time.

Regular investors pay attention to what institutional investors do because if they are willing to handle such large amounts of money it is easy enough to assume that they know what they are doing — or at the very least know more than the average investor. This is why these investors are also sometimes referred to as "smart money."

If institutional investors start investing in a company, regular investors can assume that some of the most talented analysts and money managers expect the company's share prices to increase over time.
