Amgen Inc. (0.2%) (AMGN – $111.94 – NASDAQ)(AMGN) is one of the largest biotechnology companies in the world, with medicines for cancer, kidney dialysis, osteoporosis, and other conditions. Given its large size and mature product portfolio, revenue growth has slowed, but the company has been able to cut costs and repurchase shares to sustain double digit earnings per share growth. Earlier this year, Amgen offered to acquire Onyx Pharmaceuticals Inc. (less than 0.1%) to bolster its oncology portfolio, with Nexavar for liver cancer and Kyprolis for blood cancers. On Aug 25, after a brief auction, Amgen agreed to pay $125 per share, or $10.4 billion, for Onyx. While initially dilutive to earnings, this acquisition provides significant visibility into Amgen’s future, with two blockbuster drugs that could eventually generate over $5 billion in annual sales.

Back in the old days, a child could ask, “Daddy, what was the top-performing stock mutual fund last year?” And the father could confidently look in his newspaper and say, “Why, it was the Amalgamated Growth fund, up 12%, child.” Today, however, the father would answer, “Why, it’s the ProFunds Biotechnology Ultrasector Fund, up 114.6%, child.” The child would narrow her eyes and ask, “What’s the No. 2 fund?” And the father would say, “Why, it’s also the ProFunds Biotechnology Ultrasector Fund, up 112.5%, child.” There would then be a lengthy discussion of the differences between mutual fund share classes and the definition of “ultrasector,” and the use of futures and options in mutual funds, at which point the tearful child would declare that Santa is dead and that there is no good in this world worth fighting for.
