Brett Sifling is a Stand Up Guy
Brett Sifling is honestly one of the hardest working people I know. I have been following him on twitter for a couple years now and have watched him grow. He has turned BioStocks into a wonderful educational website. He focuses on education of the trader instead of giving "alerts" like other gurus.

I don't know how some of these reviews claim for him to copy trades because if you just ask he will give complete reasoning for each and every trade. The kid straight up knows what he is doing and will help you no matter what.

Brett has been kind enough to even skype with myself and some other members when we were just starting out. He shared his screen with us and showed us exactly how he does his research, picks his plays, and more importantly what he is looking for BEFORE a stock starts its run.

He recently introduced his new full and part time program as well. I have been signed up with the part time program for a couple weeks now and it has already helped out so much. I think I will be signing up for the full time program shortly.

All in all, after reading some of the negative reviews on here I feel as if they are just haters. I mean why wouldn't you hate, the kid is balling out at 18yrs old and killing it in the market. My experience has been wonderful and I appreciate everything the kid has done for me.

Keep it up Brett. Don't listen to the haters.

A FAKE and a FRAUD - See the picture for proof
I was going to give Brett Sifling the benefit of the doubt, I have seen a lot of negative things about him, but the internet is full of haters, so who knows.

Turns out he is a fraud like everyone is saying. Somebody posted this timeline of him faking a profit on the stock DCTH. He is clearly a fake, stay away. Look at the image yourself, this is the kind of thing I have seen him pull multiple times. He wants to charge you for this?

I recommend this site
Its the only site I could find on Bio Tech stocks. I follow it and have been happy with results. I bought some calls on BIIB and made a very nice profit.

Have learned so much from this guy, Thank you
I cannot believe all the people talking bad about this site, my experiance has been the complete opposite. He has had 1 on 1 skype video chats with me explaining SO MUCH too me that i did not understand. Anytime i had a question he has had the time to answer in depth which has been a problem for me to find :/ Im not here to argue with any of these other people or to pump this kids site, i dont know what their expericance has been but calling his site "fake" seems ironic and obviously these ppl have not followed any of the trades. I have followed his trades, even his past trades before i started following him, they are all very real. I have personally made lots of $$ making trades directly after his tweets. sometimes i get in cheaper than him even :) Ive been following him for 2 months and have MADE money on every trade so far ( i do not have enough $ to do all the trades but the ones i have). Im sure the time will come that i lose money on one but that will go with any service you follow im sure. I have subscribed to 4 different subs and my gods honest opinion is this one is the most transparent and honest subscription service ive seen. And the personal experiance has been terrific. For the $ this sub is by far the best bang for the buck. Feel free to follow me on twitter or if you have and questions i will give you my honest answer

WARNING - Blatant plagiarism
All:

Since there seems to be some positive reviews here, I thought I would add my opinion to the mix. I've been actively investing and trading in the biotechnology and pharmaceuticals sector for the past 5 years and have a PhD in Pharmacology. I came across Brett through using twitter as a screening/information service for stocks and have been following him for some time. His agenda has become apparent as of late and it's pretty darn ugly. See below:



Biostocks exhibits blatant Plagiarism from Biorunup - a reputable, and verified subscriber service. If you read some of the other reviews here you'll see just what I'm talking about.

Are you willing to take investment advice from a high-schooler, who rips off material from other people? More importantly, do you know that his 'gains' are reported by hand, using profit.ly and they are NOT VERIFIED. 'Suspicious' is an understatement.

You'd be crazy to listen to this ripoff artist for any kind of financial advice. Steer clear. Two thumbs down. Your money is better spent elsewhere. Don't contribute to the bank account of a dishonest hack.

I realize this is a bit of a re-hash from what others have said, but I thought I'd add my voice to this conversation.

Best,

Rob

Biostocks is a fraudulent SCAM and a waste of money
Here's the facts, people:

1. Brett is not transparent, trades he posts on profit.ly are NOT verified, he enters his trades by hand. If someone claims they're up 400% YTD it would be prudent to have them VERIFY this information. If you're willing take a leap of faith, taking the advice of a high-school kid, who can't even validate his gains, then you deserve every penny you pay for his 'service.' His failure to be transparent leads me to believe that he's actually losing money in the market, hoping to make back his losses from potential subscribers to his 'service.'

2. Like others have more adeptly pointed out, Brett actively steals trading ideas, primarily from Biorunup, posting them as his own. This is dishonest, fraudulent behavior and is no way to run a business. He does not generate any of his own ideas. Don't be fooled.

3. The content that Brett 'provides' is freely available online. Go checkout twitter, Sheffs Station, and other free resources, they're out there. Don't waste your money on this absolute fraud. If you really want a subscription service, then look at Chimera Research Group, or Biorunup. Unlike Brett, these people are pros with relevant credentials, VERIFIED profits, and years of trading experience.

Don't be fooled. Biostocks/Brett is a SCAM.

This Review Will Save you $$$
I have been trading biotech stocks for over 10 years and it's my specialty. I am a Biorunup (BRU) member, lurker on Sheff Stations board, and follow all of the top biotech names on twitter. Less than a year ago Brett was a newbie trader that would show up every day in the BRU chat room. While I never interacted with him directly, many of the seasoned traders in chat helped him and offered advice. I think many enjoyed helping him because he was so young, naive and eager to learn. Brett was so strongly motivated that he started his own biotech trading blog. After several months I noticed some BRU members making snide comments in the chat because Brett was publishing their ideas or the BRU trading game plans from Mark (Mark and Mike are the founders of BRU), he even plagiarized an options article almost word for word (several people on twitter publicly called him out). Shortly after that scandal, Biorunup and Brett parted ways so that Brett could pursue his dream of starting his own sub based trading website.

I have followed @Rabbittrader who then changed his name to @Bsiflingtrades on twitter out of entertainment since he left BRU. I must say he is a student of Mark and Mike and the BRU community so he learned some important trading skills. The rundown (he recently failed to apply it to SRPT) and buying dilution before a catalyst (EXEL is a recent example), and not setting hard stops are a few widely known techniques.

All of the run-up style bio traders trade the same catalyst stocks. The key difference is which companies to avoid or buy and the timing of an entry. I began noticing that many (not all) of Brett's trades especially initial entries came surprisingly close to Mark or Mikes buys. Mark is a buy and hold swing trader who trades the more mainstream bio's and Mike is very good at discovering little known or obscure biotech's that no one on twitter has ever mentioned. It struck me as peculiar when Brett would tweet that he bought one of these little known stocks within minutes of a Private BRU trade alert.

A few days ago a disturbing image was circulated on Twitter from someone that knows Brett or was involved in his chat room.



Here it is: http://i48.tinypic.com/124ep1u.jpg

This compilation shows examples of how some of the friends Brett made from his time at BRU were leaking him trades and entries. I found this troubling as Brett likes to portray and market himself as a young biotech guru and overall trading expert. Even worse Brett is asking these "moles" to enter the BRU chat room and directly ask Mark trading questions. Biorunup has over 1K members and when a trade alert is sent out, volume will come into the stock as subscribers take entries. Brett is well aware of this and I found it alarming and dishonest that Brett was trying to cover up the fact that he was copying trade entries by using the volume excuse.

One of the trade leakers that was exposed admitted his mistake and offered his apologies to the BRU chat room (interestingly this same person was defending Brett in a negative review below). I have yet to see Brett publicly address the trade stealing issue. I echo another reviewer who challenged Brett to post all of his chat logs publicly. I have witnessed Brett claim on twitter that he is fully transparent but it does not appear that way. If you are considering paying him any money you should also expect him to address these serious moral issues and demand a look at those chat logs. If he is stealing trade entries how can he be trusted to run a trading website where he is supposed to be the Guru? Biorunup and Sheff Station are successful because they have years of experience knowing what stocks are most likely to run up and when it's appropriate to enter them. From my personal experience the due diligence required to pick the right stocks is extensive and Brett was stealing that (of course he has some positive reviews as who dosen't love the free BRU trade picks?)

As to Biostocks.com, Brett trades the stocks that are hot and "in play". The stocks that are hot on twitter are usually in play because one of the two major trading groups are in them (Biorunup or Sheff Station). Brett's weekly watch list will likely contain these stocks because the run up starts (twitter chatter) when one of these groups decides to open a position. Ironically as I was typing this review Brett purchased SCMP for a run-up because Sheff Station bought. Why pay for Bretts service? just follow Sheff Station for free. I have been reading Brett's weekly watch lists and there really is little substance, no unique insights that would make me compelled to pay him anything. I follow all of the top biotech traders on twitter which is where Brett gets his trade ideas from. Why would I pay Brett to filter that information for me? No thank you, I can follow these traders myself for free.

If you are reading this review than you are probably new to trading biotech stocks so I will save you the $300 membership fee with some free info:

I can guarantee Brett's watch list will likely contain the top biotech stocks from here: http://stocktwits.com/signals/heatmap#Healthcare

You can also visit Sheff Stations website here for other "in play" biotech stocks: http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/board.aspx?board_id=9413

You can find your own run up trades using a free FDA calendar website: http://www.biopharmcatalyst.com/

Here is what you do, open the PDUFA calendar and find a catalyst 2-4 months away. Check Sheff stations website and the stocktwits heat map. If there is talk about them, then it is probably safe to say it will run up. Sell before the catalyst. Now that will get you started and you will probably make money.

If you want more insight then I recommend other premium sites ( I am a lifetime member of Biorunup) and urge you to skip Biostocks.com Learn to trade from actual biotech gurus with years of trading experience.

Brett is a rookie trader with some serious moral issues that need to be addressed. In light of his recent scandals he needs to prove to the trading community that he can be successful using his own research and ideas (another review mentioned that he was a "me too" trader). From what I have seen his very own trade ideas have ended in disaster (SRPT was not his trade, that was hedge fund manager Martin Shkrelis pick from twitter). His trading experience is limited to the recent bull market when almost all stocks have ripped and he was tipped off as to which stocks to trade. If you decide to subscribe to Biostocks beware that Brett has only limited experience and it comes from a raging bull market where almost everything is going up. The good times will end...eventually. Good luck and remember to always be skeptical.

"Me-Too" Trader with No Originality
I wanted to see Brett (BioStocks) succeed. It seems that a few of the other biotech guys dominate the field and are always making money (SheffStation / biorunup ) so I really wanted to watch a young kid pop up and bring in some fresh blood and trades

Unfortunately, thats not how BioStocks works. Brett is just a 'me-too' trader making trades off what he thinks the 'big boys' will be buying or selling. There is no reason to follow him, there is ZERO originality. Whenever Brett tries to venture outside of copying others trades he loses, and loses big, just check his profitly. This currently doesnt include some HUGE losses trading AAPL options. He also went something like 0/10 trying to play earnings.

Not really a big deal for the average trader, its a great learning lesson for him in the market... but do NOT take this journey with him, unless you want to lose. He should not being pretending he is a guru.

Stay as far away from his trades as possible.

Great!
Biostocks is by far one of the best educational websites regarding trading in bios. I have only been a member for around a month however I have a ton from Brett regarding the run up/run down strategy. The layout of the website is great and the weekly watchlists are extremely insightful.Thank you for keeping the site free and keep up the good work..
