  • [By George Budwell]

    The small-cap immuno-oncology company Agenus (NASDAQ:AGEN) and the inhaled insulin company MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) are prime examples of this phenomenon. Even though both of these companies have been in existence for over two decades, these two particular biotechs have failed to bring a product to market capable of generating a significant revenue stream. As a result, these two companies have essentially been forced to wipe out their early shareholders through serial dilution.

  • [By George Budwell]

    Agenus (NASDAQ:AGEN), a small-cap cancer immunotherapy and vaccine company, has started to claw its way back from a steep downturn that began last April. Specifically, the drugmaker’s shares have spiked by a healthy 29% over just the past three trading sessions.

    Harnessing the power of the immune system to fight cancer is a big deal and Agenus Inc. (NASDAQ:AGEN) looks like a great way to follow the trend. This stock trades like a small-cap biotech, but a couple of candidates coming through its pipeline could help push annual revenue past the $1 billion mark. Plus, by this time next year, the company could have half a dozen or so new candidates in clinical trials.

    Wynn Resorts’ (NASDAQ:WYNN) first quarterly report without founder Steve Wynn as CEO — or even owning any shares of the casino resort operator — went about as well as it could have.
