Donald Trump’s comments yesterday about the drug industry when he stated that drug companies were “getting away with murder” tanked biotech stocks and the general indexes. Investors in this space must be worried in the event that Trump gains some traction in this sector and records some wins. At present, he is like a dog with a bone. In the automotive sector, for example, he is always quick to point out how he is saving thousands of jobs being lost from the likes of Ford (NYSE:F) and Fiat Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU) with their factories remaining in the U.S.
I mention this because many investors went long the biotech sector just before the complex topped out in mid-2015. This always happens at market tops. Sentiment reached ultra-optimistic levels as everyone believed biotech stocks were going to the moon. However, the IBB index remains down 25%+ over the past 18 months. With Trump eager to get his hands dirty in this sector, more declines could be in the cards.
