With March Madness in full swing, we decided to stick with what we know here at The Motley Fool, trading our basketball picks in for stock picks. We formed our own bracket filled with the top Big Pharma and Big Biotech stocks in a winner take-all tournament determined by the collective intelligence of our CAPS community.

This championship round matchup features Celgene and Abbott Labs. Like the injury suffered to Louisville's Kevin Ware, Abbott is missing a key piece after the spin-off of AbbVie. Celgene is playing the role of Michigan, with a roster of known stars (Revlimid as Trey Burke), along with emerging talents (Abraxane as Mitch McGary).

Watch and find out which company cuts down the nets as health care's best stock.


Abbott Labs has changed forever after losing its branded pharmaceutical business to a spinoff. If you're a current investor, or might be buying shares soon, make sure you truly understand the stock by reading The Motley Fool's brand new premium report on Abbott Labs. The report outlines all of the must-know opportunities and risks, along with a full year of analyst updates to keep you up to speed.
