Top 5 Companies in the Biotechnology Industry With the Lowest Forward Earnings Yield (CPHD, LGND, GHDX, PCYC, ALXN)

Nov 26, 2012 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) -- Below are the three companies in the Biotechnology industry with the lowest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.Cepheid ranks lowest with a forward earnings yield of 0.2%. Ligand Pharmaceuticals is next with a forward earnings yield of 0.8%. Genomic Health ranks third lowest with a forward earnings yield of 0.8%.

Pharmacyclics follows with a forward earnings yield of 1.6%, and Alexion Pharmaceuticals rounds out the bottom five with a forward earnings yield of 2.2%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Genomic Health on October 23rd, 2012 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $31.80. Since that call, shares of Genomic Health have fallen 12.6%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
