Are These the Best Big Biotech Stocks for Your Portfolio?

Gilead Sciences  (NASDAQ: GILD  ) has had a banner year.

Sovaldi, the hepatitis c cure, was a huge seller in its first full quarter on the market, netting $2.3 billion and blowing away analyst expectations.

Celgene  (NASDAQ: CELG  ) has had a more mixed experience this year, with concerns about the Revlimid patent and even some less-than-stellar trial data for its up-and-coming drug Otezla.

But Gilead's opportunity is more than just Sovaldi, and Celgene's is more than just Revlimid (and even more than just Revlimid and Otezla).

Are they the best big biotechs?

In the video below, Motley Fool health care analysts Michael Douglass and David Williamson give their take.

As the Motley Fool's Health Care Editor/Analyst, I focus on all things health care -- although my greatest interest is in the megatrends reshaping the American health care system, including the Affordable Care Act, Accountable Care Organizations, a shifting regulatory landscape, and the new drug discoveries fundamentally changing disease management and treatment.
