Dylan Jovine’s CRISPR Stock – A “Living Software” Company

by Theodor

November 9, 2020

Who wants to turn a small initial investment of just $1,000 into a profit of $1.57 million or more? According to Dylan Jovine’s claims, if you hop on board for his latest microcap discovery, you too could become a millionaire in a matter of months. 

In a marketing pitch Jovine posted recently, he talks about a breakthrough cure that can “cut & paste disease from your body” and, according to his claims, there is one small CRISPR stock that has obtained the patent for this ground-breaking technology. You could get the name and ticker symbol of the company Jovine teases by subscribing to his newsletter investment program, Behind The Markets, for $79 per year. Included, you will receive immediate access to the investment advisory service, and seven bonus reports. If you don’t want to pay for the subscription, stay tuned as we are going to reveal everything we were able to find out about the company and the man teasing it.

Dylan Jovine is an investment broker with over three decades of experience. He started his career on Wall Street in 1991 and at only 24 years old, he became one of the youngest people in American history to start a registered broker-dealer and market maker firm.

He predicted the 2008-2009 financial crash a year before it happened and has been invited to numerous TV shows to share his expertise. Throughout his career as a Wall Street investor, Jovine claims to have predicted dozens of profitable stocks, including Paramount, American Express, Starbucks, AutoNation, and FactSet Research. He sold his last business in 2013 to take some time off but remained a private investment advisor and began authoring Behind the Markets, “a company whose mission is to bring individual investors the same quality investment research institutional investors have.”

 

The Opportunity

Much of Jovine’s latest marketing pitch talks about the opportunity of investing in CRISPR technology, an innovative concept that can potentially cure thousands of diseases. The author starts by saying that “anyone who gets in early could turn $1,000 into $1.57 million”. 

He describes his discovery as a liquid from a mysterious vial that is “so unique that scientists believe it can treat all 6,000 genetic diseases”, including various forms of cancer. We have heard such claims be made before, see: Miracle Antibiotic Company and The Anti-Aging Stock, so you’ll have to excuse us for being just a little skeptical.

To back up his claims, Jovine mentions that already some of the biggest companies in the field have invested massively in the treatment – “Juno Pharma just invested $700 million, Glaxo SmithKline invested $350 million, Johnson & Johnson invested $292 million…” Even Bill Gates and Google Ventures have apparently invested $120 million in this treatment that “has the potential to eliminate genetic diseases for our species.” 

However, there is more than one biotech company that relies on CRISPR technology, so how can you choose the best stock? According to Jovine, there are three key ingredients for biotech investment success: 

  1. Strong Patent
  2. Strategic Partner
  3. Survived Patent Challenge

The author says he has already successfully used the technique to identify dozens of successful stocks, some of them soaring 1,007% (BlueBird Bio) and even 850% in just 12 months (Sagamo Therapeutics). 

CRISPR is very interesting and controversial at the same time, as it is a technology that can be used to edit genes. Even though the technique is not the first gene-editing method scientists have tried, it’s the simplest, fastest, and most accurate which currently exists, which is why a lot of hopes are riding on it.

This is the part where we tell you that investing in biotech stocks can bring big profits (much like almost anything else) especially so if the underlying business is mature enough and has already received the FDA’s approval or is close to getting it. Otherwise, developing a new medicine, antidote, or antibiotic to cure or treat a disease can and does often take years if not decades, during which you can sit through some real opportunity costs.

 

The CRISPR Company Being Teased

As for the company Jovine claims to have identified that will bring you profits of over 10,000%, let’s see what clues we have to work with.

  • First of all, the author claims that the breakthrough “is a treatment that eliminates the need for medicine as we currently know it. It’s called CRISPR for short.” 
  • “In short, CRISPR technology allows you to ‘cut’ away bad genes and ‘paste’ in good ones”. Moreover, “CRISPR technology is actually more like ‘a living software’ program.”
  • The first clue we have about the company teased is – “at the center of all this is one small company that owns the patent on this technology.”
  • Later in the pitch, we find that “in the last few months, they’ve announced positive results from a partnership with Allergan Pharmaceuticals and Celgene, two of the largest biotech companies in the world.”
  • Jovine goes on with his hype, mentioning that “this company is literally at the center of this revolution” and that “CRISPR has the opportunity to radically change how we treat diseases”.

From all the details he gave, we were able to identify the company being teased as Editas Medicine (NASDAQ: EDIT). It has generally been referred to as the “winner” in the latest round of the long-running patent fight over the CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing technology, which will probably remain ongoing for as long as the technology remains in use.

 

Legit Opportunity or More Hype?

Can Editas Medicine harness the power and potential of CRISPR gene editing to help people living with serious diseases around the world? 

The plan seems straightforward, but the execution will be anything but. As the answer to the question of whether or not CRISPR gene editing will prove successful will come down to being able to license the technology and for those licensees to be able to produce real world results with that license. In this particular case, given all the questions surrounding CRISPR and its possible implications, it will require years of expensive trials and rigorous testing before getting final approval by the FDA.

Editas has made some progress in this regard, scoring preliminary trial approval for what could possible go on to be the first in vivoCRISPR genome editing treatment.

It’s worth mentioning here that Jovine’s pitch is not new and the name of this company has first been mentioned about two years ago, in a similar newsletter released by the same author.  The author has pumped up biotech stocks for at least 5-6 years as a fast and easy way to produce good returns and profits of over 1,000%. And, while some of his predictions managed to rise by 60-70%, it’s still a far cry from claims of 1,000% or more.

As long as  you have a long-term mindset and the patience to sit on something for at least a couple of years and let it mature, then a stock such as Editas can prove fruitful in the end. These are anything but fast developing businesses and therefore aren’t suitable for speculators who are strictly looking for short-term profits. Given the amount of time that goes into new medical discoveries, combined with the time required for test trials and the approval of the FDA, we’re looking at going to market only after at least 3-4 years for most biotech stocks. 

Those who are a bit further ahead with their trials and already received early FDA approvals such as Editas, can take slightly less than this but even then it’s still a gamble as you also need to take into account the value of the patent, its lifetime, and how much licensing revenue it can really bring in before something newer and better is eventually developed.

 

Quick Recap & Conclusion

  • Dylan Jovine is a financial investor and analyst with over 30 years of experience. He previously worked on Wall Street and was one of the youngest ever registered broker-dealer owners in the U.S.
  • In a marketing newsletter that originally debuted in the Fall 2018, Jovine talks about a “living software” company that can potentially turn a $1,000 investment into a $1.57 million profit. 
  • He pitches his newsletter investment program, Behind The Markets, for $79 per year, and promises to reveal the name and ticker symbol of the teased biotech stock. For those of you who don’t want to subscribe to his program, you don’t have to, as we were able to identify the company being teased right here for free as: Editas Medicine (NASDAQ: EDIT)
  • Editas Medicine appears to have won the patent war for CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing technology that will allegedly transform the way over 6,000 diseases are treated. The tech behind the procedure will allegedly “cut” away bad genes and “paste” in good ones to treat conditions as diverse as cancer and even blindness.

  1. This is a very interesting article. By all accounts a medically technical breakthrough that could by all accounts eliminate disease and once and for all create the world Rod Serling's TWILIGHT ZONE Episode, which was in fact released in 1960 and was indeed titled, "Eye of the Beholder". For those who do not know I suggest you see it before I release the typical Serling ending, kind of you get what you pay for surprise. That said, we have seen this movie before too in the form of Spielberg's interpretation of Michael Crichton's, "Jurassic Park". In either case the human experiment run amuck with a severe case of slicing and dicing and splicing to create.

    There is no doubt being bale to cure cancer in this manner would be greatly appreciated and welcomed, especially by the condemned to die. Who would say no? Not me. But then there is this other side to be fully examined before one of our well meaning political candidates gets a hold of this, like the current empty suit elect; you have the power to eliminate beauty in all of its forms because ugly is what we would be trying to remove. Do that, then how could we know what beauty really is without an offset to compare to and is it not true that ugly in all of its forms have a special place in a perfect world. Sounds like this brave new world could be in fact Aryan and we have been there before; who sets the standards?

    "I am now worried that like Jeff Goldblum conversation is excerpted here for review and consideration:
    Dr. Ian Malcolm : you're selling it, you wanna sell it. Well…

    John Hammond : I don't think you're giving us our due credit. Our scientists have done things which nobody's ever done before…

    Dr. Ian Malcolm : Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should."

    Just an overall thought to attach to this marvel when it happens. Who will control it and how? Just a thought. I guess that is progress.

    Good job though, love your column kind of like the "YELP" of IPO and Stock opportunity. Keep up the good work. Maybe as an aside they can figure out how to get rid of those monster hornets that just invaded Washington State, now that is a good thing.

  2. MY PACK OF EDITAS has been WEIGHING HEAVILY on my bottom line!

    Nice to hear that it MAY ACTUALLY be WORTH SOMETHING some day!

    Just gotta keep Joe and the COVID-CHINA away!

  3. Another great research from Greenbull research! Very informative and educational! Thank you once again for your reliable research! More Power!

  4. I guess everyone needs a little speculation in their investments. I bought a little awhile back as I like the idea and this stock has not gone up like the other Crisper stocks have. If it truly has patents that make it worth more in future then may be a good place for a little "bet".

  5. CRSPR is potentially very powerful and the in vivo trial looks set to produce positive results.
    I mainly invest in Biotech in the US although I reside in the UK.

    Editas is in my portfolio. I expect a price surge when they make an announcement, which is expected in January next year.

    In my opinion $50 up to $150 looks the likely price next year if the results are as expected.

    I don't expect to profit on every Biotech stock but there are a fair number of stocks in this sector that make big gains. You just have to find them out of a pool of 820 companies!

  6. Sounds like all other companies in the sector apart from "Editas Medicine appears to have won the patent war for CRISPRundefinedCas9 gene-editing technology"

    So I have invested a small amount and will leave it in my bottom draw.
