Codexis continued to have a great 2018, growing 36% in May to all-times high for the stock. Many of the other positive movers in May were medical companies, growing thanks to increased investor appetite for the technologies like gene editing and immunotherapies which may power the next generation of medicines. Amyris had another rough month, retreating from the impressive growth it showed earlier this year, though the stock is still up 36% on the year. Overall, the index is up over 20% on the year, while comparable indexes are only up 2-3%.
