Updated cell therapy index portfolio
UPDATED AGAIN DECEMBER 1, 2012 BY ADDING NASDAQ:NWBO
This an update of a post originally released October 18. What has changed is we've added four companies (shown below in red).
There are certainly analysts, traders, and brokers who cover the public segment of the cell therapy industry with much more expertise and experience than I -- among them is Henry W. McCusker of Scimitar Equity (@henryw09 on Twitter).
As part of our tracking of the sector's financial data and trends, we have created a portfolio of public cell therapy companies comprised of the 34 companies listed below (linked to their page on Google Finance).
I've been watching this portfolio since the beginning of the calendar year (January 2012) and have been commenting on its performance as against some of the major indices. (Oct 8 post and Aug 10 post).
In addition to these occasional reports I will occasionally report on Twitter (@celltherapyblog) on the stocks in this portfolio which are enjoying the largest gains/losses and which have the largest/smallest trading volumes. From time-to-time I will aggregate this content into a blog post.
