Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019: Blueprint Medicines Corporation(BPMC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    After reporting second-quarter financial results and updating investors on the progress it’s making in developing cancer therapies targeting specific genetic mutations, Blueprint Medicines (NASDAQ:BPMC) saw its shares rocket 17% yesterday. News that management is initiating new trials and potentially filing its first drug for FDA approval in 2019 helped spark investors’ interest, but that wasn’t the only thing management said about its future. Read on to learn more about this clinical-stage biotech stock and whether it’s right for your portfolio.

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    The big thing to watch this week will be how investors view Loxo’s results in comparison to results presented earlier this year by Blueprint Medicines (NASDAQ:BPMC). Blueprint’s BLU-667 also targets RET-fusions and at the American Association for Cancer Research meeting in April, Blueprint revealed a preliminary overall response rate of 50% for NSCLC and 40% for MTC. It’s bad science to compare unrelated trials, so investors might be best off viewing Loxo and Blueprint’s data as evidence that they’re both working on a winning approach.

  • [By ]

    Blueprint Medicines (Nasdaq: BPMC), similarly to Loxo, is working on cancer medications that can target different mutations, and target them with precision. No wonder the stock rallied more than 14% this year, and that’s on top of the share-price more than doubling in the last three years. By 2020, BPMC plans to have two products already on the market, with four more pending. This company could certainly become a target for a larger peer, especially if its 2020 plan remains on track.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019: Pacific Gas & Electric Co.(PCG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Many major utilities are now ramping up investments in cost-saving, margin-boosting energy efficiency programs. In fact, there’s a strong correlation between the most ambitious renewable energy investment strategies and energy efficiency programs. Some utilities have a lot of catching up to do.  

    Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) has saved 13,000 GWh of electricity consumption across its network over the years, including 9,000 GWh since 2005. The company has an ambitious plan to retire coal-fired power plants and build new wind and solar power capacity, which, when coupled with energy efficiency, could allow it to generate 45% of its electricity from renewables in 2027. Additionally, fuel-related expenses would drop from 47% of capital investments in 2010 to just 28% in 2027. That would free up more cash flow for dividends or growth projects — or both. PG&E (NYSE:PCG) recently filed a plan to retire an aging fossil fuel power plant with distributed solar and energy efficiency programs, as discussed on a recent quarterly conference call with investors. The utility also offers some of the most ambitious customer rebates in the country, with up to $5,500 per household. Southern Company (NYSE:SO) has saved 2,700 GWh of electricity consumption across its network since 2000. By 2020, it will have invested $1 billion total in energy efficiency programs, although that lags well behind more ambitious peers. Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) was ranked second to last among all utilities in the country in energy efficiency by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy. That leaves plenty of room for improvement. A recent report suggests it’s possible to reduce new home energy consumption in Virginia (the company’s home state) by 60%, saving the utility billions in capital investments in the next decade by avoiding the need to build new facilities. Those efforts could also save customers $1.7 billion, but the utility’s most recent plan does not prioritize energy efficien

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019: Fitbit, Inc.(FIT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Shares of Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) fell 7% yesterday following Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) unveiling of the Apple Watch Series 4. The Mac maker’s popular smartwatch sports a redesign as well as the ability to take electrocardiograms (ECGs), a major health feature that differentiates Apple Watch from any other health-oriented wearable device. Series 4 also includes other features that help users monitor their hearts.

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    Even as smartwatches continue to gain traction and take market share from basic fitness wristbands like Fitbit’s (NYSE:FIT) Charge, Alta, and Flex devices, Fitbit is investing aggressively in the category. Today, Fitbit unveiled Charge 3, a new version of its highest-end fitness wristband.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    A 20% spike in the fitness wearables niche was particularly good news, considering rival Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) saw its unit volume plunge during the period. Like Fitbit, Garmin has noticed a dramatic shift in consumer demand toward more premium trackers like smartwatches. Yet Garmin’s bigger product line scratched that itch for fitness fans thanks to popular new releases like the Forerunner and Edge franchises. Its lineup allowed fitness sales to rise 20% even as Fitbit’s revenue fell 18%.

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) have emerged as the two clear market leaders in smartwatches, with Apple Watch leading the way but Fitbit’s growing portfolio of smartwatches helping it secure the No. 2 spot while simultaneously driving a turnaround for the smaller company. Meanwhile, Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) subsidiary Google has ceded share, although the search giant is expected to jump in directly with a first-party Pixel Watch in the near future. Rumors of the company’s foray into the market were only fueled by recent news that Google acquired smartwatch tech from Fossil and is hiring for wearables design and engineering execs.

  • [By Chris Neiger]

    Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) became the world’s top maker of wearable tech just a few quarters ago, when it outpaced Fitbit (NYSE: FIT) for the first time. Apple Watch sales are still a small portion of its total revenues (the company doesn’t break out Watch sales in its reports), but the growth rate of the consumer IoT device market indicates that there’s still plenty of room for Apple to expand its wearable business.

  • [By Timothy Green]

    The pieces of Fitbit’s (NYSE:FIT) turnaround are falling into place. The wearables company has found success with its inexpensive Versa smartwatch, selling more than 1 million units within two months of launch. And its recently announced Charge 3 fitness tracker brings enough improvements to the table to potentially return that part of the business to growth.
