Not taken advantage of the biotech boom yet? Now could be the perfect time…

by , 17 September 2015

If you want to invest in the biotech sector, the US has the biggest offering. The sector has been booming, but August saw a bit of a dip.

Yet if history is anything to go by, this isn't something to worry about. And it could present a great opportunity to invest in biotech.

Let's take a closer look…

August tends to be a bad month for the biotech sector

If you look at the performance of stocks in the US, August tends to be a shaky month. Since 1993, August has been the worst month for the Dow. June and September come second and third.

Blue chips seem to take it hardest. But after this battering, they go on a beautiful run, Matthew Carr in Investment U explains.

And the same happens in the biotech sector.

Just look at the chart below of the iShares NASDAQ Biotechnology ETF (exchange traded fund). This is its monthly performance over the past five years.

As you can see, August is the only month where the sector has made losses. In five years, it only rose in 2012 and 2014.

The same has happened in other biotech ETFs.

Why it’s time to invest in the biotech sector

Historically, September, November, December and January are great months for biotech stocks. They tend to perform very well.

And this gives you the perfect entry point into the sector. If you haven’t already invested in biotech stocks, now is the time to consider it.

If you don’t want to pick individual biotech stocks, look at the array of biotech ETFs listed in the US as a starting point. You could get in just before the end of year boom.

So there you have it. Why now could be the perfect time to take advantage of the biotech boom.
