Bird Flu Stock Picks

We are on the cusp of a deluge of Bird Flu news, on-line, on TV, radio, radio-talk shows, newspapers, everywhere we look. What will this do for a well constructed basket of bird flu stocks? We will soon find out.

NVAX
is hitting 52 week highs today, $6.12, up for $1.49 when we added it to our bird flu basket;

NNVC is trading back above $2.00 today;

CRXL is off it's highs and may be at a good entry price here, around $24.50;

HEB
spiked up to $4.00 then fell all the way back under $3.00, it's a Buy here at $3.18.

DSCO is our "back-door" bird flu pick, a buy anywhere under $8.00;

BCRX has a lot more going for it then just bird flu speculation, a Buy under $20;

AVII looks to have ended a normal retrace, Buy under $7.00;

AVAN
, a Buy under $2.00;

GNBT seems to also have completed a small correction and has recent insider buying, Buy under $2.50;

SVA
is our china connection bird flu play and is way, way off it's highs;

APT makes masks, which we may all be wearing someday;

VICL a little noticed vaccine play.

That's a dozen bird flu ideas, buying at least half of them should provide some good exposure, especially with stories like this coming out:

Ready or Not, Bird Flu Is Coming to America

Good night and good luck,

nvax appears to be capable of producing the largest volume vaccine for bird flu.

Alan, in the news is the report of a cow in Alabama testing positive for Mad Cow, what stocks would you recommend for that disease?

Alan -

I am extremely happy that I found this website....for GNBT is there a price in which I should get out and let drop back down or just ride it out? Like I said in an earlier post, I seem to sell winners early....I did sell most of my ARWR at $5.10 and just missed buying it $4.50....

I bought GNBT for a triple digit gain, not for a measly 10% where it is now. For me anyway, it's a B&H.
