One of the hottest trends in biotech is obesity drugs. Due to the overwhelming percentage of overweight Americans, an effective and safe weight loss drug could have astronomical earnings potential. Speculation in Vivus' product, Qnexa, and Arena's Lorcaserin has sent both companies' shares skyrocketing during the summer. However, as we learned in July from Vivus, even the slightest criticism from the FDA can send the stock plummeting straight back down. Arena will hear back from the FDA next month regarding Lorcaserin. Lorcaserin is considered the most likely anti-obesity drug to receive FDA approval due to its mild side effects.

The new healthcare reform bill could lead to significance ramifications for biotech companies. Over the next decade, the biotech industry is expected to lose $105 billion as result of the healthcare bill. Most argue that this will be partially offset by the additional 32 million Americans insured as a result on the bill.
