10 States Where the Millennials Are More Obese Than the Seniors

The $475,000 price tag on Novartis AG’s latest breakthrough cancer therapy came under fire from one of the biggest managers of drug costs in the United States, underscoring the challenges the Swiss drugmaker will face in promoting the potential blockbuster.

The cost of the leukemia treatment, called Kymriah, is “dramatically higher” than other such complex treatments, and the health care system isn’t ready to pay for it, Steve Miller, chief medical officer at Express Scripts Holding Co., said Thursday in a blog post on his company’s website.

    So where am I going to invest my capital? While I’m still refining my list, here are seven stocks that I currently own that I’m strongly considering adding to:

    Hubspot (NYSE: HUBS) — A software-as-a-service provider that is pioneering the shift toward “inbound” marketing. HealthEquity (NASDAQ: HQY) — A fast-growing company focused on Health Savings Accounts that boasts three sources of recurring revenue. Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ: AAXN) — The leading provider ofTaser stun guns, law enforcement body cameras, and evidence-management software. Paycom Software (NYSE: PAYC) — A founder-ledpayroll-processor company that is gobbling up market share. Adobe Systems (NASDAQ: ADBE)– The company’s push to the cloud is drivingdouble-digitgains in revenue and profits. AppFolio (NASDAQ: APPF) — Asoftware-as-a-service provider focused on servicing business owners in severalniche markets.

Here’s some timely news for Independence Day: According to the 2017 State of Independence in America survey recently released by MBO Partners (a business operating system provider for independent workers), a fifth of the nation’s 40.9 million freelance workers earned over $100,000 last year, up from just 12.5% in 2011.

Thanks to the robust job market, gig economy workers are increasingly able to compete on their own terms and charge more for their services. Last year, MBO says, full-time independents averaged $65,300. Notably, older workers (those 53 and above), who tend to be more experienced, fared better than average — reporting a median income of $77,000.

The Gig Economy Workforce Is Growing

The number of independents (freelancers, consultants, temps and on-call workers) is rapidly growing and now constitutes an estimated 31% of the private workforce, up about three percentage points from 2016. Full-time independent workers age 53+ rose from 33% to 35%. And the number of people MBO calls Occasional Independents — those working irregularly or sporadically as independents, but at least once a month — soared by 23% over the past year, to 12.9 million.

As I only have so much bandwidth and have been distracted covering other stock adventures, exclusively here on SA, I haven’t written about shares of GNC Holdings Inc. (NYSE:GNC) since March 10th.

As you can see from these snapshots, I got my hands on a copy of Stephen Tanal’s March 22, 2017 GNC and VSI analyst update. Stephen reiterated his $5 price target and pointed to a price study conducted at the end of February as his rationale for his super bearish thesis. I read the brief report and yawned.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Buy Right Now

Ever since peaking in late April, Kate Spade’s (KATE) shares have been in a downward spiral so pronounced that even an amateur technical analyst like myself could draw its trend line lower. Today, however, its shares are soaring after the Wall Street Journal reported that Kate Spade was actively seeking a buyer.

Mizuho’s Betty Chen and Alex Pham run the math on a possible acquisition price:

When we examined historical transactions in the specialty retail sector, we noticed a wide range of valuations. Select relevant transactions to consider would be ~2x EV/Sales Coach (COH) paid for Stuart Weitzman, Samsonites acquisition of Tumi at 14x EV/EBITDA, 13x EV/EBITDA for Joseph A. Banks by Mens Wearhouse (TLRD) and Kerings acquisition of Volcom for 18x EV/EBITDA. We believe potential valuation could be as high as ~2x EV/ Sales and ~14x EV/EBITDA given Kate Spade’s unique growth profile to expand to ~$4bn in revenue (from $1.4bn in FY16) and improving profitability from 12% EBIT margin TY to at least HTeens-LDD, in our view (Coach is 18.7% and Michael Kors (KORS) is 21.3%). On these two metrics, Kate Spade would be valued at $21-23…

Top 10 Value Stocks To Buy Right Now: Novo Nordisk A/S(NVO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    When most investors think of diabetes stocks, names like Novo Nordisk A/S (ADR) (NYSE:NVO) and MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) come to mind. And well they should. Novo Nordisk is the biggest insulin company in the world, and while MannKind is relatively small, it’s a name that turns heads simply because it came up with an inhalable insulin that – after a slow start – is getting a little traction.

    In both cases though, the paradigm is the same one that was first used decades ago. That is, if a person isn’t making their own insulin, then it must be introduced externally. What if instead a diabetic’s glucose levels could be controlled by turning on the cells in their body responsible for processing that sugar? That’s the approach Cell MedX Corp (OTCMKTS:CMXC) is taking, using a relatively new but very compelling science.

    While chemical-based manufactured pharmaceuticals were largely the core of healthcare for well over the past century, it’s become clear that our bodies – right down to our cells – are also electrical in nature. Not only do they produce it, they need it to function properly. The FDA has even recently approved a therapeutic device that delivers mild electrical currents to and through an individual’s body as a means of treating pain. This “electromedicine” has also shown a certain degree of efficacy as a treatment for several illnesses, including cancer. Specifically, electrical currents have been demonstrated to force pleomorphic cancer microbes into hibernation, essentially making a cancerous cell a normal, healthy cell again. So, using an electrical current as a means of therapy for diabetics isn’t far-fetched at all. Indeed, it’s quite brilliant.

    As for how Cell MedX is using the idea, it’s actually quite simple. The device is called an eBalance. At first glance it just looks like another ordinary tablet computer. A closer inspection of the e-Balance device, however, makes it clear that it’s not just another tablet. It’
