This will be a great year for life sciences tools and diagnostics companies, says Bryan Brokmeier of Maxim Group. And no, growth won't be driven by irrational exuberance, the senior analyst explains in this interview with The Life Sciences Report. Instead, the industry is bolstered by powerful tailwinds fanning new demand for molecular diagnostics, and by the clamoring of academia, pharmas and biotechs for specialized assay platforms. As Brokmeier lays out his sector growth theory, he also highlights a group of stocks with value drivers that could power a portfolio with biotechlike growth potential.
