Biotechnology


The biotechnology industry includes companies that engage in the production of drugs manufactured through natural ingredients like DNA. Such companies, which include Gilead Sciences Inc. (GILD) and Celgene Corp. (CELG), have discovered treatments and therapies for various cancers and diseases. While the industry has high barriers to entry due to patents and strict U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines, biotech companies generally have high research and development expenses. Fortunately for investors, the biotech industry is noncyclical as demand for drugs and other treatments are not sensitive to changes in the business cycle. Other biotech companies include Amgen Inc. (AMGN) and Biogen Inc. (BIIB).
