Hot Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

Gene-based therapy is one of the waves of medical innovation that is growing stronger by the day. In our Specialty Report, we featured two highly promising approaches to gene editing for the management of various diseases. The most popular way that is featured in the Hollywood film (Jurassic Park) is via CRISPR/Cas9: it is utilized by bacteria for million of years as a defense mechanism against viral invasion, and is the basis of gene-modification for Crispr Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CRSP). The other less-mentioned method that is just as effective is Zinc Finger Nuclease. And, Sangamo Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SGMO) is leveraging on this latter method to innovate its pipeline. That being said, we initiated our coverage of Sangamo through a three parts research (I, II, III). In this report, we’ll present an earnings update on Sangamo and analyze a novel catalyst that has the substantial unlocked value.

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

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) recently unveiled its latest and greatest smartwatch, the Apple Watch Series 4, and Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) shares dropped in what seemed like a reflex action. At first look, this isn’t surprising, as Cupertino is currently leading the wearables space and its latest offering is a clear indication that it will keep pushing the envelope to retain the crown.

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    Fitbit Inc. (NYSE: FIT) had a bit of good news recently as sales of its Versa product rose. However, the news, which helped the share price, was not enough to counterbalance a horrible financial performance and shares that have plummeted 55% in the past two years. Chief Financial Officer William Zerella has jumped ship for another job. Shareholders would be fortunate if Chief Executive Officer James Park followed him.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Fitbit Inc. (NYSE: FIT) shares made a handy gain to start off the week after the company announced that it shipped more than a million Fitbit Versa devices since general availability began on April 16. Overall, this is a sizable number for the firm, demonstrating strong consumer demand for the product.

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has been on the ropes for several quarters now, as smartwatches broadly cannibalize the basic fitness tracker category that has long been the core of Fitbit’s business. The good news is that Fitbit recognized the market’s pending transition years ago, and started acquiring defunct companies that contained the technological pieces that could underpin its own smartwatch ambitions. While the first product that came from those efforts (the Ionic) flopped, the second (the Versa) is performing significantly better in the marketplace for wearables.

Top 5 Stocks To Watch For 2018

Wells Fargo’s David Maris and team call Valeant Pharmaceutical International’s (VRX) earnings and guidance “worse than feared” and contend that the struggling specialty pharmaceutical company’s “debt problem [is] coming into focus.” They explain:

Reuters

Our preliminary look at 1Q results leads us to believe that Valeant is performing significantly worse than expected. New full-year 2016 adjusted EPS guidance of $6.60-$7.00 falls well below our full-year estimate of $8.81. In many key business areas, Valeant is underperforming consensus…

To give investors a sense of why this quarter was particularly challenging, $558 million in cash from operations annualizes to approximately $2.2 billion. Between now and 2020, Valeant has approximately $15 billion of debt due, as well as other obligations of approximately $480 million. If the business stays the way it is, or continues to deteriorate, we believe Valeant will be challenged in making those debt payments. Based on this quarter’s cash from operations, we do not see debt holders being enthusiastic about restructuring Valeant debt…

The fund owned 46,328 shares of the pipeline company’s stock after selling 5,550 shares during the period. D.A. Davidson & CO.’s holdings in Energy Transfer Equity were worth $658,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Management teams tend to be very coy about what they’re working on behind closed doors. Energy Transfer Equity’s (NYSE:ETE) leadership, on the other hand, was very transparent about what’s going on behind the scenes during the company’s first-quarter conference call. They openly answered analysts’ questions, which provided investors with an interesting glimpse into what’s ahead.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One reason investors are worried that Energy Transfer might need to reduce its distribution is that the company barely generates enough cash flow to support it without the help of its parent Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE). In 2017, Energy Transfer Partners produced $4.19 billion in distributable cash flow and would have paid out $4.15 billion to investors if it wasn’t for the fact that Energy Transfer Equity relinquished its rights to $656 million of that cash. While that support boosted the distribution coverage ratio from a tight 1.0 times to a more comfortable 1.2 times, it was only a temporary fix since Energy Transfer Equity’s support will diminish significantly in 2018 before declining further in 2019 and 2020.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Like last quarter, Energy Transfer Partners delivered strong earnings and cash flow growth. Because of that, the company was able to cover its jaw-dropping 12.4%-yielding distribution by a healthy 1.15 times. That slight decline from the year-ago quarter was caused by parent companyEnergy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE)significantly reducing its support. For a better comparison, the coverage ratio would have still been a solid 1.1 in this year’s first quarter without any assistance from Energy Transfer Equity, while it would have been a worrisome 0.98 in the year-ago period without the parent company’s help. That improvement isexactly what investors wanted to see this quarter.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

Warren Buffett aims to hold stocks forever. Were a bit less patient. But we like playing the long game: picking a few solid companies, sticking with them through tough times and hanging on for years, even a decade or more. Investing for the long haul can smooth out the risks of buying individual stocks, which may tumble or stay depressed for ages before taking off.

With dividend-paying stocks, you can also pocket a bit of income while you wait.
