What are some of your top Buy-recommended stocks at this time?

At this time, I have quite a few companies with Buy recommendations. The first one is Sangamo Bioscience (Nasdaq: SGMO). I like this company because it has a platform called transcription factor technology, which is unique to the industry and the company is the market leader in this field. Also, the company has a decent pipeline, with many candidates in the development stage.

Another company I like is called Lexicon Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: LXRX), which is similar to Sangamo Bioscience. This company also has a platform technology called gene knockout. The company is a market leader in this area. And also the company has a decent pipeline, and has recently signed a few deals.

Another one is called Critical Therapeutics (Nasdaq: CRTX). This company actually has two products in the market, called Zyflo and Zyflo CR. These two products are indicated for asthma. So this tiny biotech company we feel can compete in the huge asthma market, although this market is also very competitive. I recently initiated coverage of this stock with a Buy recommendation.
