Five Star Equities Provides Stock Research on BioSante Pharmaceuticals & Cell Therapeutics

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - Biotechnology stocks have been on a tear this month, gaining an impressive 11 percent. Reuters recently released an article arguing health-care costs are outpacing consumer inflation, leading government and industry to seek ways to cut costs. Reuters' 2012 biotech outlook says this could mean an even greater reliance upon drugs. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Biotechnology industry and provides equity research on BioSante Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: BPAX) and Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTIC). Access to the full company reports can be found at:

Gunderson Capital Management argues that part of biotech's rally is being driven by expectations that President Barack Obama's health care reform plan may be repealed. Earlier this month House Republicans pushed through a resolution in support of a Constitutional amendment that would repeal Obamacare. House Resolution 1003 asks Congress to call a constitutional convention to propose an amendment to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which is also set to be challenged before the Supreme Court this year.
