well it may seem gutsy on the surface for a conservative portfolio but on the other hand for a young person with a long time horizon it is a bet that biotech as a whole is the next great frontier and at some point in his many years ahead a return to 75 or higher where it has already been in the past is more than likely with at this point a low price entry barrier. It is a wealth creator for those without the time constraints of some of us old geezers. If you are looking for compounding growth then how about AGNC with a 13% yield that pays monthly with a reinvest the dividend plan. I have owned it for years upon years thru all kinds of markets and only wish I had as a young person set up a reinvestment program. Anyway good luck.
