Hot Performing Stocks For 2019

Markets have rebounded, and volatility has settled. That’s very good news for the IPO market, which is especially impacted by market turmoil.

Right now, we’re in annual February lull, and companies are putting off IPOs to finalize full 2017 financials and get past the Presidents’ Day holiday. The week’s four offerings included two SPACs (raising $450 million) and two small healthcare companies ($30 million). Fast-growing pharmaceutical Biofrontera (Pending:BFRA) soared 43%, while pre-revenue device company Motus GI (Pending:MOTS) plummeted 20%.

IPO performance update

The Renaissance IPO Index, tracker for the IPO ETF (IPO), traded up 5.9% and recovered to its all-time high. The 28 IPOs of 2018 average a solid gain of 21%. Excluding biotechs, the average return is 8%. The three best-performing deals are biotechs (ARMO, MNLO, SLDB), and the year’s two tech IPOs (PAGS, CDLX) are #4 and #5. Biotech IPOs show no sign of slowing, and strong trading this week from recent IPOs Cardlytics and Cactus should be encouraging for tech and energy IPOs in the pipeline.

    Strayer Education (NASDAQ:STRA) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Strayer Education’s first-quarter 2018 earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate and increased 29.5% year over year. Moreover, revenues improved 1.4% from the prior-year quarter’s figure, owing to higher winter term enrollment. Positive enrollment trend continued in the first quarter with new students and total enrollment up 6% each. Strayer’s convenient, accessible and flexible educational programs are designed to meet the educational needs of working adults. Strayer University is lowering the cost of its programs to enhance affordability. However, tuition cuts and an unfavorable mix of students toward lower undergraduate tuition have resulted in declining revenue per student over the past few quarters. Revenue per student declined approximately 5% in the first quarter of 2018. Importantly, Strayer and Capella decided to merge in an all-stock deal of equal transactions, expected to close in the third quarter of 2018.”
