1 Biotech Stock You Can Buy and Hold for the Next 20 Years

Lastly, Celgene is working with more than two dozen collaborative partners on a range of hematology, oncology, inflammation, and immunology drugs. These collaborations may cost Celgene a bit in upfront and milestone costs, but putting its financing behind some revolutionary new treatment pathways could net it substantial long-term rewards that can replace lost Revlimid sales next decade.

Celgene has been even more impressive in the fact that it's managed to largely grow organically. This isn't to say Celgene won't make any acquisitions going forward, but the company looks poised to double its sales and nearly triple its profits through 2020 based on organic growth and label expansion alone.

Based on this, as well as the above-mentioned factors, I'd suggest long-term investors seeking that "unicorn" biotech holding give Celgene some serious consideration.
