Top 10 Gas Utility Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Heartware International, Inc.(HTWR)

Heartware International, Inc., incorporated on June 29, 2008, is a medical device company. The Company develops and manufactures miniaturized implantable heart pumps or ventricular assist devices to treat patients suffering from advanced heart failure. The Company operates in the segment of design and manufacture of medical devices. The HeartWare Ventricular Assist System (HVAD System), which includes a ventricular assist device (VAD) or blood pump, patient accessories and surgical tools, provides circulatory support for patients in the advanced stage of heart failure. The HVAD System is designed to be implanted adjacent to the heart, avoiding abdominal surgery. The HVAD System features the centrifugal pump designed to be implanted in the chest, directly adjacent to the heart.

The HeartWare HVAD System

The HVAD System consists of HVAD pump, a permanently implantable VAD, patient accessories and surgical tools. The HVAD pump is capable of generatin g over 10 liters of blood flow per minute. With a displaced volume of approximately 50 cubic centimeters and a mass of over 140 grams, the HVAD pump is implantable in the pericardial space, directly adjacent to the heart. The pump’s inflow cannula is integrated with the device itself, providing proximity between the heart and the pumping mechanism, facilitating ease of implant and helping to ensure optimal blood flow characteristics. The use of a wide-bladed impeller and the clear flow paths through the pump are designed to help reduce the risk of pump-induced damage to blood cells.

The HeartWare MVAD System

The MVAD System consists of similar components, surgical tools and peripherals, as the HVAD System, but is differentiated by the MVAD pump. The MVAD pump is a miniaturized blood pump intended for patients with chronic heart failure. The device is a full-output axial-flow pump with a fully suspended rotor and a displacement volume of less than on e-half of that of the HVAD pump.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    We explored the possibility that United States Steel (X) had turned the proverbial corner, that Michael Kors Holdings’ (KORS) earnings might portend trouble for Macy’s (M), and that Valeant Pharmaceutical International’s (VRX) is on the long road to recovery.

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    BMO Capital analysts initiated coverage on United States Steel Corporation (X) early on Wednesday, giving the stock a “Market Perform” rating because the company will be negatively impacted by lower steel prices.

    The analysts see shares of X reaching $19, which suggests a 7% downside to the stock’s Tuesday closing price of $20.51.

    US Steel shares were down a fraction during pre-market trading on Wednesday. The stock is down 14% year-to-date.

    Deutsche Bank’s Jorge Beristain and team explain why they upgraded US Steel (X) to Hold from Sell but left AK Steel (AKS) with a Sell rating:

    M&M commodity prices rallied ~13% in 2Q16 and M&M coverage gained 24% on: 1) a view that a near-term commodity floor was formed following China’s stimulus in 1Q16; 2) which sparked a shift in investor willingness to underwrite debt/equity offerings, leading to 3) material Balance Sheet improvements (new equity + extension of maturities). This is not unique to M&M and has played out in the Energy sector too (WTI oil rallied 36% QoQ). Given the number of M&M shelves filed we expect further activity ahead. We are now less negative on Steels, but our preference remains for non-integrated companies (Minimills, Aluminum) as well as gold exposure via Newmont Mining (NEM).

    Given revised commodity deck forecasts (particularly for Steel and Gold) and improved Balance Sheet health (Steels, Precious and Industrials Metals) we are upgrading our ratings on several stocks in our coverage. We generally favor companies that have already initiated specific self-help, have low-cost assets and are less exposed to China supply and demand dynamics. In Steels, we have increased our rating from Hold to Buy on Nucor (NUE) and from Sell to Hold on US Steel. We have also upgraded Kinross Gold (KGC) to a Hold on valuation…On higher-than-peer valuations, we reiterate Sell-rated Coeur Mining (CDE), Franco-Nevada (FNV), Goldcorp (GG), Teck Resources (TCK) and highly leveraged AK Steel given preference to issue further equity if possible.

    Not that it’s mattered: Shares of US Steel have gained 1.5% to $17.91 at 2:58 p.m. today, while AK Steel has risen 1.5% to $4.64. Nucor has climbed 3.6% to $50.73, Kinross Gold is unchanged at $5.64, and Newmont Mining is up 1.8% at $41.08.
