Shhh! Here is a stock tip from us, via The Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal:
Venture capital investments in health care companies are outpacing all other industry segments, according to a new study by Dow Jones VentureOne and Ernst & Young.
Both biopharmaceutical and medical device companies boasted a 27 percent rise in the level of investment they attracted as of Jan. 1, 2006, compared to funding levels four years before, the study shows. They beat out electronic and semiconductor companies by a wide margin. Those two industries showed a 12 percent and 9 percent gain respectively compared to four years ago.
The greater the upsurge in innovation in the medgadgetry field, thanks to venture capital, the better devices for us to cover, the better health care for the sick.
