Best Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

Ionis Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: IONS) shares were relatively flat on Wednesday after the company announced a new collaboration with Roche to develop IONIS-FB-LRx for the treatment of complement-mediated diseases.

Ultimately, this collaboration will leverage Ionis’s leadership in RNA-targeted therapeutics to develop IONIS-FB-LRx targeting Factor B (FB) for a broad range of diseases.

The first indication the two companies will pursue is the treatment of patients with geographic atrophy (GA), the advanced stage of dry age-related macular degeneration. A Phase 2 study in patients with GA is planned to begin in early 2019.

In the Phase 1 study in 54 healthy volunteers, IONIS-FB-LRx reduced plasma FB and was safe and well tolerated.

Brett P. Monia, chief operating officer at Ionis, commented:

Ionis is committed to bringing new therapies to patients living with unmet medical needs. The collaboration is designed to maximize both the potential benefit to patients and the likelihood of success, while optimizing our commercial participation in IONIS-FB-LRx. This new agreement builds upon our productive relationship with Roche on IONIS-HTTRx (RG6042), an antisense drug for the treatment of people with Huntington’s disease. Our antisense technology is the first to demonstrate robust, dose-dependent and sustained reduction of FB in a clinical study. We believe that we have found the right partner whose experience in retinal disease drug development and commercialization will enhance our efforts to effectively develop IONIS-FB-LRx for patients who currently have no adequate treatment options.

Best Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019: International Business Machines Corporation(IBM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Anders Bylund, Timothy Green, and Dan Caplinger]

    Anders Bylund (IBM): I know, IBM isn’t supposed to get growth investors all excited. The technology veteran has seen nothing but shrinking revenues over the last five years alongside stable profits, at best. Over the same period, stock prices fell 29% lower and IBM investors missed out on a 70% growth spurt in the broader market.

    Here’s an illustration of what Qualcomm was up against. Alphabet’s Google announced in early 2016 that it was developing an open server architecture that would support POWER chips from International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM). POWER was already supported across Google’s toolchain at that time, so the effort began even earlier. It took until March of this year for Google to announce that POWER chips had been deployed in its data centers, and that deployment is likely small at the moment.

Helping clients give money away isn’t just good service, a new survey from Foundation Source finds that it can actually be good for one’s advisory practice, too.

Foundation Source on Thursday released the results of a survey that shows how an advisor’s philanthropic knowledge and guidance around charitable vehicles might impact their practices.

“A lot of times, in the survey, advisors said that they didn’t bring it up at times because they were uncomfortable with the topic,” Snow told ThinkAdvisor. “Other times, the feedback we’ve gotten is that sometimes they feel it’s too personal a topic to bring up. It’s something that [advisors] really need tips on how to initiate the topic.”

Respondents who said they “never” (3%) or only “sometimes” (31%) discuss philanthropy with their clients cited the following reasons: perceived lack of client interest (65%), not a priority for them (15%, too personal to ask about (9%) and unsure of their topical knowledge (9%).
