Hot Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

What happened

Shares of Dexcom(NASDAQ:DXCM), a medical device maker focused on diabetes, surged 23% as of 11 a.m. EDT on Thursday. The huge jump is attributable to the release of second-quarter results that smashed expectations and featured a huge boost to guidance.

So what

Here’s a review of the key figures from Dexcom’ssecond quarter:

Revenue jumped 42% to $242.5 million. For perspective, Wall Street was only expecting revenue of $204.9 million, so the company handily beat estimates. Non-GAAP net loss was $9.2 million, or $0.10 per share. That was also much better than the $0.18 loss that market watchers were expecting.

The better-than-expected results also allowed management to significantly boost its guidance for the year. The company now expects full-year revenue of about $925 million. That’s much higher than its prior range of$850 million to $860 million.

This past week, though, the company made another monumental move by announcing it was consolidating all of its subsidiaries.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

    Many people think of recreational vehicles as part of an iconic American pastime associated with the love of the open road. For Thor Industries (NYSE:THO), the RV manufacturer’s corporate home in Elkhart, Indiana, might seem about as far removed from international trade tensions as you could image. Yet even though the RV market has been extremely strong lately, Thor believes that what’s been going on between Washington and foreign trade partners could create headwinds that will eventually make their way to this company in America’s heartland.

Hot Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

The world’s hottest oil field is still the subject of speculation about its maximum potential. Last year, Occidental Petroleum Corp.’s chief executive officer, Vicki Hollub, said output from the Permian could reach 5 million barrels a day. Pioneer Natural Resources Co. Chairman Scott Sheffield doubled that — saying it could hit 10 million by 2027. This year, we’ll listen for any change in tone from Occidental and Pioneer, as well as whatever Centennial Resource Development Inc. CEO Mark Papa has to say on shale output forecasts.

    Crude prices in the U.S. continued their ascent today, rising nearly 3% to about $72.50 a barrel — the highest level since late 2014 — after the U.S. government reported a massive drawdown of oil storage levels. This news sent most oil stocks soaring, including Sanchez Energy (NYSE:SN) — up 12% at one point — and Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO), which rallied nearly 6% by the mid-afternoon and was one of the biggest gainers in the S&P 500. However, that rally in the oil market didn’t drive up the entire sector as CNX Midstream (NYSE:CNXM) and Mammoth Energy Services (NASDAQ:TUSK) both tumbled double-digits on the day.

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    For example, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B), JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), and Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) are hunting for a visionary CEO for their healthcare initiative. The three companies are teaming up to reinvent healthcare, to improve outcomes and cut costs.

    Warren Buffett has often said in interviews and annual letters to shareholders that Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A)(NYSE:BRK-B) won’t be a hostile acquirer. That is, it won’t fight to buy a business its owners or management don’t want to sell. But that policy apparently doesn’t apply when Berkshire is acting as seller rather than a buyer.

    Lear also sees strong “upside potential” forConcho Resources (CXO), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) and Newfield Exploration (NFX) as well performance improves in the Permian/STACK, and also writes positively on Devon Energy (DVN).

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was an up-and-down day for the stock market, which lost substantial ground early in the day only to climb back toward the unchanged mark by the end of the session. A slight rise for the Dow Jones Industrials led to yet another record-high close, and although other major market benchmarks weren’t quite as lofty, they nevertheless finished with only modest losses on the day. Generally favorable news and sentiment helped the market bounce back during the day, but some stocks still finished lower. Newfield Exploration (NYSE:NFX), Global Blood Therapeutics (NASDAQ:GBT), and Nautilus (NYSE:NLS) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

    The large cap E&Ps we cover raised ~ $6.5 billion of equity in 2015 and are likely to consider additional issuance in 2016. Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) raised $1.3 billion on January 5th and Hess Corp. (HES) raised $1.5 billion of equity/equity-linked earlier this month. We think highly leveraged companies such as Devon Energy,Encana andRange Resources (RRC) and companies with a large deficit (before asset sales), such asAnadarko Petroleum and Devon Energy, are most likely to consider raising equity. Additionally, we believe companies such as WPX Energy (WPX), Southwestern Energy (SWN), Marathon Oil, Continental Resources (CLR),Noble Energy and Newfield Exploration (NFX) could issue equity while several levered companies may be unwilling or unable to access equity markets. We do not think Apache, Canadian Natural Resource, EOG Resources (EOG), Occidental Petroleum orPioneer Natural Resources are likely to issue equity this year.

    How about individual stories? Tuesday I was pleasantly surprised by the commentary on both the Darden (DRI) and Carnival (CCL) calls. Weekend dining and lunch were very strong for Darden, parent of Olive Garden, even though CEO Gene Lee acknowledged that it’s competing against “new necessities today, whether smartphones, whether it’s your cable bill, your Netflix bill. I mean, they have increased significantly over the years.” Hmm, is there any wonder why takeout pizza is so strong? Makes me want to buy both Darden and Domino’s (DPZ) .

  • [By David Sterman]

    Take Cabot Oil & Gas (NYSE: COG(link is external)) as an example. As I noted earlier this month(link is external), Cabot’s current drilling plans are expected to lead to a big spike in output over the next few years. The company’s executives decided to plow ahead with development plans, even as rivals were retrenching. The fact that natural gas prices have risen more than 10% in the past three weeks simply underscores the wisdom of that strategy, and could lead to rising sales and profit estimates.
