E Biotech Investing: Many Choices, Few Winners

TM editors' note: This article discusses a penny stock and/or microcap. Such stocks are easily manipulated; do your own careful due diligence.

This year I started to construct my speculative portfolio. Some speculative elements are vital to any investor's success. One of the sectors that I added to my expanding investment portfolio is small cap biotech stocks. 

Biotech investing is not for the faint of heart. After some disappointment news from Tenax Therapeutics (TENX), I started to invest some money in Belgian biotechs Thrombogenics (TBGNF), AST biotech and Biocartis.

The last biotech that I added is a company called Xenetic Biosciences (XBIO). It's an interesting choice because it does not depend on one technology/product, which is often the case with biotech stocks.  

As you can see in my current speculative portfolio above, I have six biotechs, three with a listing on Euronext Brussels, Belgium and three with a Nasdaq listing. 

Investing in the biotech atmosphere is risky, but the awards can be fruitful.

Last year November Xenetic Biosciences transferred from the OTCQB to the Nasdaq Capital Market. Like most biotech companies in my portfolio, it's a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company.

The company is focused on the discovery, research, and development of next-generation biologic drugs and novel orphan oncology therapeutics. Stone Fox Capital already once ran an article on SA, called Xenetic Biosciences: Small Biotech With Large Partners And Shareholders.

From Russia With Love

On November 13, 2015, Xenetic entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with AS Kevelt, an Estonian biotech company and OJSC Pharmsynthez, a Russian pharmaceutical company.

Certain intellectual property rights held by Kevelt and Pharmsynthez were transferred.

According to the Xenetics' 10-K filing (page 6), it holds now more than 201 patents and 90 pending patents. Where do you find a company with so many intellectual properties at such a small market capitalization?
