Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019

After five deals in six months, Bank of Nova Scotia is taking a breather.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do in terms of execution and integrations now, so I think we’ll be fairly quiet on the acquisition front from here on in,” Chief Executive Officer Brian Porter told BNN Bloomberg on Friday in a TV interview set to air at 3 p.m. Eastern time.

On Thursday, Scotiabank agreed to buy MD Financial Management from the Canadian Medical Association for C$2.59 billion ($2 billion), the latest in a series of announced acquisitions that include Canadian money manager Jarislowsky Fraser Ltd. and Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA’s 68 percent stake in a Chilean lender.

The purchase of Ottawa-based MD Financial will add a wealth-management business with C$49 billion in assets and 110,000 clients, including affluent doctors, the Toronto-based bank — Canada’s third-largest — said Thursday in a statement. Also on Thursday, Scotiabank sold 19.7 million shares to raise about C$1.5 billion to help pay for the deal, an offering Porter said was “very well received."

Apparently, investors are beginning to catch on to the fact that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has a severe case of a behavioral condition known as “the planning fallacy.” People who suffer from the planning fallacy are serial offenders when it comes to projects coming in over budget, late, and with fewer features than promised. The New York Times reported that Telsa’s main problematic issues pertain to a slower timetable than expected for the introduction of the Model 3, along with problems that relate to the manufacture of its battery packs.

Top Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Elon Musk is admitting he messed up sort of.

Days after the Tesla (TSLA) boss shocked Wall Street by completely dismissing critical questions from two analysts as “boring,” Musk said on Friday it was “foolish of me” to ignore the queries.

Musk’s insults, and his refusal even to respond to legitimate questions, made for one of the weirdest corporate earnings conference calls in recent memory. The bizarre performance sent Tesla stock plunging, wiping $2.8 billion off its market value and $632 million off Musk’s personal stake.

“I should have answered their questions, live,” Musk tweeted a day later.

Yet the Tesla CEO also mounted a defense of the call that may raise even more questions about his handling of the situation, which continues to overshadow the company’s actual results.

Musk suggested that the reason he dismissed the questions was because the analysts didn’t have “buy” ratings on Tesla stock. But that’s no reason to hand the call over to a blogger from YouTube for a dozen questions that spanned 23 minutes, which is what Musk did.

    Friday was a poor day on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell 200 points and other major benchmarks lost about 1%. Rising bond yields were a major source of consternation among those following the financial markets, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 2.95% and helping to send mortgage rates sharply higher. Even though earnings season has gone fairly well for many companies, some investors are also starting to realize that political issues are likely to cloud the outlook for the U.S. economy in the coming months, creating more uncertainty that could stymie further market gains. Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood. Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK), ManpowerGroup (NYSE:MAN), and Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 Stocks To Watch For 2019: U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc.(SLCA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Investing in frack sand supplier U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) has been a roller-coaster ride to say the least over the past few years. First, everyone on Wall Street was clamoring to get into frack sand when shale oil and gas were getting their start in the first half of this decade. Then, oil prices started to crash, and demand for frack sand dried up fast. Now that oil and gas producers have significantly lowered costs and are using more sand than ever, demand is red-hot again, but investors don’t seem to be interested.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Despite posting a sharp recovery in operations in 2017 compared to 2016, frack sand supplier U.S. Silica (NYSE:SLCA) just can’t seem to earn the respect of Wall Street analysts. Shares have fallen 22% in the last year. Some of that is easy to understand considering how badly the company (and the industry as a whole) overshot market demand in the past, which crashed sand prices and wiped out profitability. But I think there’s enough evidence that management has learned valuable lessons and put them into practice this time around.

I would count infrastructure asset manager Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE:BIP), proppant and ceramic supplier U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA), and the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ:GT) on that list. But are they all buys?

    Daiichi Sankyo (OTCPK:DSKYF)

    There are 4 members of the EGF receptor family, but in cancer research we tend to focus mainly on the first two: EGFR and HER2. But we are also gaining a better understanding of the third family member, HER3, which is an odd duck because of its willingness to form dimers not with itself, but with other members of the EGFR family. And it is highly active in PI3K/Akt signaling, as well. So its no surprise that companies are trying to exploit this receptor as a therapeutic target. DSKYFs U3-1402 is an antibody-drug conjugate targeting HER3 and delivering a lethal payload to tumor cells. This phase 1/2 study focused on the use of this agent in metastatic breast cancer overexpressing HER3.

Best Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Spirit Airlines Inc.(SAVE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Last fall, Spirit Airlines (NYSE:SAVE) forecast that its adjusted nonfuel unit costs would decline 3%-5% year over year in 2018. This reflected the ultra-low-cost carrier’s dreadful cost performance during the second quarter of 2017, when a pilot dispute forced Spirit to cancel hundreds of flights. Adjusted nonfuel unit costs surged 10% year over year in that quarter.
