First do no harm.

That’s a core principle for treating patients. But a promising gene-editing method called CRISPR-Cas9 could potentially harm patients. Two papers published in Nature Medicine on Monday raised concerns that using CRISPR-Cas9 to edit genes could increase the chances that cancer cells develop.

The stocks of CRISPR Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CRSP), Editas Medicine (NASDAQ:EDIT), and Intellia Therapeutics (NASDAQ:NTLA) plunged on the news. All three of these biotechs
are pioneering development of gene-editing therapies using CRISPR-Cas9.

But should investors panic because of the possibility that CRISPR-Cas9 could cause cancer? Not at all. Here are three reasons why you should remain calm.

1. It’s Still Early
Do initial research findings in the scientific community sometimes prove to be incomplete or even incorrect? Absolutely. It has even happened relatively recently with CRISPR-Cas9.

    Penny stocks are exciting in a get-rich-quick kind of way. But the risks of something going wrong are huge. The penny stock space is replete with scam artists and small, financially weak companies. So we asked three Motley Fool investors to recommend stocks that are established, yet still quite exciting. If you’re considering penny stocks, you might want to step back instead and take a look at Immersion Corporation (NASDAQ:IMMR), Melco Resorts & Entertainment Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLCO), and Royal Gold Inc. (NASDAQ:RGLD). Each of them opens up a huge opportunity, if you take the time to dig in just a little bit, without the risks that often show up with penny stocks.

I’ve never met the man and don’t know any more about him than most InvestorPlace readers do, so I’m not about to suggest his tenure will be a failure, but I can say that investors will recognize pretty quickly that Hackett is not a permanent fix.

Apple is promising free repairs for faulty MacBook keyboards after waves of complaints about malfunctions.

The company said it has “determined that a small percentage” of MacBook and MacBook Pro keyboards may have misfiring keys that unexpectedly repeat or do not produce characters or have keys that feel “sticky.”

The company’s own technicians or authorized service providers can provide the remedy. It may include replacing one or more keys or the entire keyboard, Apple says.

Laptops eligible for free service include certain 12″ to 15″ laptops made between early 2015 and 2017. A full list of models can be found here.

Apple says customers who have one of the affected laptops and already paid for a repair can contact the company for a refund.

Reports of issues with Apple’s butterfly-style keyboards, first introduced on the MacBook in 2015, have been common online.

Apple said the butterfly design was 40% slimmer than older versions and would provide more precision. But tech site The Verge has called the keyboards “famously problematic.” A piece from the online publication The Outline also declared: “the new MacBook keyboard is ruining my life.”
