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%.

    Starbuck’s Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX) Executive Chair Howard Schultz announced he will depart the company. Many are speculating he will pursue a career in politics and potentially seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. Schultz had previously denied any speculation around a role in government; but his recent comments suggest that “public service” will be a part of his future plans. Gold prices dipped below $1,300 per ounce as markets continue to speculate on the likelihood of additional interest rate hikes in 2018. We believe this is solid buying opportunity for investors. The reason why gold is going to get a nice boost: ongoing trade tensions between the United States and the rest of the globe.

Inspire Medical Systems (INSP) has gone public and its shares have seen a great opening day return. The medical device company has great prospects as shares jumped 50% on their opening day. The still limited valuation and the potential of its therapy make that I am still happy to buy a few shares, which I regard as a long-term call option on the potential success of the business.

Minimally Invasive Solutions

Inspire Medical is a medical tech company which focuses on development and commercialisation of minimally invasive solutions for patients which are diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. The company has developed its proprietary Inspire system, as the company claims that this is the only FDA approved neurostimulation technology which offers an effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.

The Inspire therapy essentially monitors breathing patterns and delivers nerve stimulation to maintain open airways. The company has been marketing this therapy in certain European countries from 2011 onward, as FDA approval was granted in April of 2014. Note that patients must have moderate to severe sleep apnea and must not have a complete concentric collapse of the airway before being considered for treatment. Patients, furthermore, need to be 22 years of age, or older, and not be tolerant to airway pressure treatments.

    Union Pacific’s management displayed an admirable sense of duty to stakeholders in initiating these steps, which are due to roll out in a phased manner beginning Oct. 1. Scheduled railroading has been implemented with much success in 2017 and 2018 by fellow rail giant CSX (NASDAQ:CSX). It’s never easy to admit that a competitor’s approach might be superior to one’s current best practices, much less embrace the competitor’s method. Scheduled railroading was originally evolved by railroad legend Hunter Harrison, who died unexpectedly in December of last year while implementing the system at CSX (though the work is being faithfully carried out by succeeding CEO Jim Foote).

Top 5 Stocks To Watch For 2019: U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc.(SLCA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Investing in frack sand supplier U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) has been a roller-coaster ride to say the least over the past few years. First, everyone on Wall Street was clamoring to get into frack sand when shale oil and gas were getting their start in the first half of this decade. Then, oil prices started to crash, and demand for frack sand dried up fast. Now that oil and gas producers have significantly lowered costs and are using more sand than ever, demand is red-hot again, but investors don’t seem to be interested.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Despite posting a sharp recovery in operations in 2017 compared to 2016, frack sand supplier U.S. Silica (NYSE:SLCA) just can’t seem to earn the respect of Wall Street analysts. Shares have fallen 22% in the last year. Some of that is easy to understand considering how badly the company (and the industry as a whole) overshot market demand in the past, which crashed sand prices and wiped out profitability. But I think there’s enough evidence that management has learned valuable lessons and put them into practice this time around.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Hsbc Holdings PLC raised its position in shares of U.S. Silica Holdings Inc (NYSE:SLCA) by 78.8% during the first quarter, according to its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission. The fund owned 27,339 shares of the mining company’s stock after acquiring an additional 12,045 shares during the period. Hsbc Holdings PLC’s holdings in U.S. Silica were worth $698,000 as of its most recent filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    In fact, despite a historically expensive stock market, quite a few stocks are on sale this quarter. I would count infrastructure asset manager Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE:BIP), proppant and ceramic supplier U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA), and the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ:GT) on that list. But are they all buys?

Best Undervalued Stocks To Buy For 2019

Tupperware Brands’ (NYSE:TUP) stock has tumbled more than 40% since last July on a consistent flow of negative news. Most recently, TUP revised its first-quarter earnings forecast down by 14% to $0.87-0.92 from a previous range of $1.01-1.06. Customer service, supply chain, and tax issues were the main reasons for the revision. With that being said, I see the stock as being significantly undervalued for the following reasons:

Free cash flow is expected to rebound to $170-180 million in 2018, an increase of approximately $30 million over 2017. Free cash flow should further rebound in future years as TUP completes its reengineering program. This yields 51% upside potential in a conservative discounted cash flow model. TUP is performing well in Emerging Markets, especially China and Brazil, which could push TUP to a growth trajectory in the coming years. The company currently has a dividend yield of 6.52%, which is supported by free cash flow. Based on TUP’s 2018 free cash flow projection, this should equal dividend coverage of approximately 80%. It has attractive fundamental valuations including a Forward P/E of 8.51x and a PEG of 0.73x. Tupperware Brands’ Operations

Driving TUP’s net loss for 2017 was a number of non-recurring expenses:
