Jun 10, 2013 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) -- Below are the three companies in the Biotechnology industry with the highest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.SIGA Technologies ranks highest with a forward earnings yield of 21.9%. PDL BioPharma is next with a forward earnings yield of 20.7%. United Therapeutics ranks third highest with a forward earnings yield of 12.4%.

Sciclone Pharmaceuticals follows with a forward earnings yield of 12.0%, and Amgen rounds out the top five with a forward earnings yield of 7.4%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Amgen on May 20th, 2013 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $103.38. Since that call, shares of Amgen have fallen 4.4%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
