NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 30, 2011) - There is plenty of optimism surrounding the biotech sector as firmer pricing and new products have improved sales and earnings trends.

The importance of maintaining a steady pipeline of drugs to market is having varied effects on the biotechnology industry. Larger firms are leaning on acquisitions to quickly expand their product lines while smaller ones are opting for increased spending on research and development. This creates two potential avenues of profit for speculative biotech investors: a greater chance of a blockbuster drug or being acquired by a larger firm eager to boost its pipeline.
