Top 10 Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now

Marijuana stocks are hot now, as is the social and political climate around them.

But true investors know that if you’re going to be a successful investor you have to be able to spot objective opportunities and not be pulled by emotional or political feelings.

Few issues exemplify this more than the new wave of cannabis legislation sweeping the country.

At this point, recreational marijuana is legal in nine states and medical marijuana is legal in 30. That’s 60% of the U.S. states that see some reason to legalize marijuana. And cannabidiol (CBD) a non-psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana is legal in 17 states to treat children with epilepsy or severe seizures.

Canada has also legalized recreational marijuana and it has some of the most mature cannabis companies in North America.

Because the U.S. is still a patchwork of states that allow limited, full or no use of legal cannabis, it’s a challenge for an industry — and by extension marijuana stocks — to truly develop. What you have is companies that have moved into the most open cannabis markets to establish themselves in the hopes of being able to scale up their business nationally, when the time comes.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now: Glu Mobile Inc.(GLUU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Tuesday was rough for Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU) investors. Shares of the mobile gaming company plunged 13% after it posted poorly received fourth-quarter results. It’s a big hit for one of the hottest mobile gaming stocks over the past couple of years, but it’s not much a setback when you stretch out your horizon beyond Tuesday’s trading day. 

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU) stock has more than doubled over the past year, getting a recent boost from an impressive first-quarter report that revealed all-round improvements in the company’s business. This is a massive turnaround for Glu as Wall Street wasn’t convinced about Glu’s ability to grow profitably at this point last year, when its losses were mounting, but it now seems to have put those speculations to rest quite emphatically.

  • [By Jamal Carnette, CFA]

    Although it’s far beneath Wall Street’s radar, Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU) stock has quietly had an amazing year. On a year-over-year basis, shares of the mobile app game developer have advanced 120% versus 19% for the Russell 2000 small-cap index. Still, it would be a folly to call Glu Mobile’s public-market performance a success. Shares are down 45% since its 2007 IPO, while the index has increased 140%.

Top Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019

While its closest rivals Domino’s (NYSE:DPZ) and Papa John’s (NASDAQ:PZZA) have steadily delivered impressive growth in the United States Yum! Brands (NYSE:YUM) Pizza Hut has struggled.

Domino’s saw its same store domestic sales grow by 13% in its most recent quarter, the 22nd consecutive quarter of positive sales in its U.S. business.Papa John’s has not done quite as well, but it posted 5.5% growth in U.S. comparable store sales in its latest quarter, in line with how it has been performing, and well ahead of industry averages in the struggling domestic restaurant market.

Pizza Hut, however, saw U.S. comparable sales drop 4% in Q4 while they were even for the full year. The numbers look worse when you factor out that the company had a 53-week 2016 versus a 52-week previous year.

It’s a market where two brands — Domino’s and Papa John’s — have connected with the consumer through convenient delivery in the case of Domino’s and higher quality in the case of the Papa John’s (with both making price a driving marketing factor as well). Pizza Hut, which has no clear brand positioning with U.S. consumers, has fallen behind, but its parent company seems to recognize that something is wrong and has promised to fix it.

Top Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019: Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Inc.(ALNY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “Although Alnylam has a broad and promising pipeline, we note that most candidates are in mid stages of development. These candidates still have a long way to go before hitting the market. The company relies highly on collaborators for funding. Any development/regulatory setback would be a negative for the company.  However, Alnylam reported positive data from the ATLAS study in the first quarter which led to regulatory filings for its late-stage pipeline candidate patisiran and the FDA set an action date of Aug 11, 2018. The company along with its partners Sanofi and The Medicines Company, restarted fitusiran's ATLAS phase III study and advanced inclisiran in the ORION-9, -10, and -11 phase III studies, respectively, with results expected for both programs in 2019. Alnylam expects to achieve the profile of three marketed products by the end of 2020.”

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market finished lower on Friday, with triple-digit losses for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and modest declines of as much as half a percent for other major benchmarks. A mix of economic and political news kept investors on their toes to end the week, as fears of a possible attack on Syria watered down some of the potential upside that could have stemmed from solid earnings results from the banking sector during the morning. Even though many investors have pretty positive expectations going into earnings season, some companies suffered from disappointing news that sent their shares lower. Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX), and MBIA (NYSE:MBI) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brian Orelli]

    The delay in an FDA decision for Tegsedi puts it behind competitor Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY), which expects to hear from the FDA by Aug. 11 for its hATTR drug patisiran. But Sarah Boyce, the president at Akcea Therapeutics, doesn’t think a few months will really matter: “We don’t really feel that’s going to have any impact and the drugs will be close enough together from a launch perspective. So not really [going] to make any adjustments, and we’re very well prepared to be ready to launch following approval.”

    Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY) released first-quarter results last week, but all eyes were looking forward as the company waits for a potential approval of its hereditary TTR amyloidosis (ATTR) drug, patisiran.

  • [By Keith Speights]

    I wrote three months ago that I viewed Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY) stock as a pretty good pick — but with a couple of qualifications. First, I didn’t think that the biotech would generate returns in 2018 nearly as great as it did last year. Second, I thought that there were even better stocks to buy than Alnylam.

Enough investors seem to be waiting for an opportunity to buy that losses have generally been muted and short-lived. Moreover, some good news sent many individual stocks higher, and Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), RH (NYSE:RH), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the top performers on the day.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own For 2019: AVG Technologies N.V.(AVG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Igor Novgorodtsev]

    InterActiveCorp (IACI) bought Ask.com for $1.85 billion in 2005. The new Perion will be worth only about 40% of that. After the merger, Perion will leapfrog its much larger rivals: Babylon and AVG (AVG). Finally, Perion should be able to increase its operating margins as it can spread its SG&A costs over a much larger base (Conduit EBITDA margin is 32% vs. Perion’s 23%). Perion will keep its senior management team intact: Josef Mandelbaum will remain its CEO and Yacov Kaufman its CFO. Perion has successfully orchestrated a roll-up acquisitions of privately-held Sweetpacks and Smilebox, so I have high confidence that they know how to integrate a new business.
