Image: Vertex Pharma continues to soar toward our fair value estimate.
The biotech arena is difficult to navigate, which is why we tend to play it a bit more conservative than most. Vertex Pharma has an established, cash-flow generating portfolio of cystic fibrosis therapies, which has helped to establish a net cash rich balance sheet and a steady stream of robust free cash flow, unlike many biotechs that need external capital and are at risk of never reaching commercialization. We’re excited about Vertex’s clinical pipeline of potentially transformative genetic therapies, and we like its exposure to CRISPR gene-editing technology, which could be a huge business in the years ahead. Vertex Pharma remains our favorite biotech play and an idea in the simulated Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio.
