  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    The energy sector is feeling the pinch of low oil and natural gas prices, which has been a headwind for oil field services industry stalwart Helmerich & Payne, Inc. (NYSE:HP) and dragged down investor sentiment for midstream sector players Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD) and Buckeye Partners, L.P. (NYSE:BPL).

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Public Service Enterprise Group Incorporated(PEG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shauna O’Brien]

    Jefferies announced on Tuesday that it has upgraded Public Service Enterprise Group Inc. (PEG).

    The firm has lifted its rating on PEG from “Hold” to “Buy,” and has raised the company’s price target from $36 to $37. This price target suggests a 12% increase from the stock’s current price of $32.42.

    Analyst Paul Fremont commented: “We are upgrading to Buy based on the improving outlook for regulatory approval of the company’s “Energy Strong” capital spending program.

    “Each $1.0 billion of incremental spending will add an estimated $0.10 to PEG’s earnings. We assume that incremental spending is funded by debt and by incremental cash expected from the increasing gas basis differential between the Leidy hub and New Jersey. Our new estimates are considerably higher than consensus in 2014-16.”

    Public Service Enterprise Group shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Tuesday. The stock is up 6% YTD.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Invest In 2018

On Monday, our Elite Opportunity Pronewsletter suggested going long on small cap healthcare products and services stock Natus Medical (NASDAQ: BABY):

Furthermore, Natus Medical Management has managed to beat earnings and revenue estimates for four out of the last five quarters, providing investors with confidence in their ability to manage the Street’s expectations. Assuming the Company continues its current growth trajectory, we expect at least 22% bottom line growth from this year to next.

Technically, shares of BABY have pulled back following a tremendous run that began in late 2013, which didn’t stall until late 2015. Since then, shares have been range bound off its highs of just over $51 per share. Provided below are both a daily and a weekly chart showing you not only what type of run the stock is capable of making once it finds its footing, but also the wide range its traded within for a little over a year now.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Invest In 2018: Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc.(ALXN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Alexion Pharmaceuticals (ALXN) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today after its audit committee found no need to restate the company’s financials.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Alexion Pharmaceuticalsgained 9.5% to $139.18 today, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.1% to 2,269.00.

    Morgan Stanley’sMatthew Harrison and team argue that the audit committees report is “lifting a cloud” over Alexion, but they still have their concerns:

    Without significant fireworks mgt. has filed the 10-Q lifting a cloud around the details on the potential wrong doing and its impact. While the “pull-in” sales had less than a 1% impact and do not appear pervasive in use as evidenced by the limited amount outside of 4Q15, we do wonder how the increased scrutiny will impact the selling organization and the potential increased conservatism among personnel going forward. We look forward to 2017 guidance and updates to MG filing and 1210 enrollment at the 4Q16 call.

    Alexion’s market capitalization rose to $31.2 billion today from $28.5 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $144 million on sales of $2.5 billion in 2015.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ALXN) posted a new 52-week low of $98.63 on Wednesday, down about 5.7% compared with Tuesday’s closing price of $04.64. The stock’s 52-week high is $157.02. Volume totaled about 8.5 million shares, around 4 times the daily average of about 3 million. The company announced several executive changes on Tuesday and the fallout has continued.

  • [By David Sterman]

    Growth-oriented investors should also check out Alexion Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: ALXN(link is external)), which falls through the cracks between the massive well-established biotechs, and the small-cap biotechs that are still pre-revenue.

    Alexion targets rare and severe diseases, and has built a broad platform of drugs to treat them. Sales growth has never been less than 37% at any point in the past eight years, and 20% to 25% growth appears locked in over coming years as well. Analysts at UBS, who see 30% upside to their $202 price target, believe that a healthy drug pipeline provides multiple catalysts this year in the form of clinical trial updates. They suggest that shares would be worth $230 in a buyout scenario. 

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Alexion Pharmaceuticals (ALXN) sunk to the bottom of the S&P 500 today, a drop that is being attributed to revelations on Wednesday night that it had to delay its 10-Q because of a whistle blower investigation into its sales practices.

    Getty Images

    Shares of Alexion Pharmaceuticals tumbled 10% to $$113.62 today, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.1% to 2,164.45.

    After speaking with Alexion CEO Vika Sinha, Citigroup’s Robyn Karnauskas and Mohit Bansal see a buying opportunity. “As we highlighted in our previous note, we cannot envision anything that changes numbers fundamentally and see this weakness as buying opportunity,” they write. They also write that they looked at the companies past financials and saw no red flags, while noting that Soliris, the drug that is causing all the problems, “is sold on named patient basis, therefore, chances of fake sales are very minimal.”

    Alexion Pharmaceuticals market capitalization fell to $25.4 billion today from $28.5 billion yesterday.

    Making mining equipment has been a horrible business over the last few years. The industry has been hard-hit by the spending cutbacks at mine sites around the world. For example, BHP Billiton Limited trimmed its capital exploration expenditures by roughly 70% between fiscal 2013 and 2016. No wonder Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT), Komatsu Ltd. (NASDAQOTH:KMTUY), and Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) have been hurting. Only that looks like it’s starting to change, which means this trio could be at the top of a list of mining equipment companies to buy in 2017.

    Ever walk past a construction site? It’s hard not to be enthralled by all the heavy construction machinery moving things around. With the world’s developing economies still building at a relatively fast pace and developing economies, like the United States, in desperate need of upgrading their aging infrastructure, the companies behind that construction machinery could be just as exciting as a construction site in the years ahead. Which is why Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT), Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI), and Terex Corporation (NYSE:TEX) are three of the top construction machinery stocks to look at right now.

    Shares of Sunnyvale, California-based, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD)weredown by more than 3% in yesterday’s trading session (April 4th) and also dropped further by around 1% in the initial after-market hours. This could have been partly caused by thedowngrading of NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) stock byPacific Crest analysts. Their research finds that desktop GPU market has reached saturation levels which could hurt NVIDIA. AMD has its flagship GPU launch slated for this quarter and the arguments of the Pacific Crest analysts might not have gone down well with some investors. AMD stock did not deliver a decent performance in the last month(March) by its standards but now, with another important product launch in Ryzen 5 on April 11, the question arises, will AMD stock see a rally like the one which preceded the Ryzen 7 launch? Of late, AMD stock has some positives going for it. To add to that, some recent news about Ryzen 5 CPUs suggest the Sunnyvale-based chipmaker could gain big going ahead. Let’s take a closer look.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks For 2018

EMM & QNX will be the growth drivers going forward. But the risks in BlackBerry stock continue to remain elevated.

BlackBerry(NSDQ:BBRY)stock is a very volatile stock. When the company announced its latest set of earnings on the 20th of December, the share price rose to around $8 a share, but since then has plummeted back down to the $7 level. Blackberry is unique in that it is a low priced stock but is just as liquid as many of its peers. This combined with the volatility of the tech sector attracts all types of investors and traders as volatility is a guarantee (which we have obviously seen over the past week or so).

BlackBerry’s latest fiscal third quarter was definitely a mixed bag. On one hand, you had aggressive margin expansion and a surprising profitable quarter on a non-GAAP basis, but on the other hand, top line came in $20 million short of what was expected. A return to revenue growth is expected next year with enterprise software & QNX probably leading the way. Blackberryand its investors know that if this company can comprehensively combine these areas as well as its security wing to work cohesively in the emerging Internet Of Things market (IoT), then this company will have a strategic competitive advantage. Blackberry’s pivot from hardware to software may have been well timed but I would still recommend caution. Here are three reasons to back up my case.
