Top Medical Stocks To Watch Right Now

A Super Bowl commercial aimed at people suffering from opioid-induced constipation has incited public outrage. A Super Bowl ad for opioid-induced constipation has sparked a major backlash.

The ad, which reached more than 111 million viewers, touted a drug to help opioid users suffering from irregularity. But many medical and political leaders saw it as an attempt to capitalize on the opioid epidemic that’s plaguing the country.

“It’s very disturbing to see an ad like that,” said Dr. Andrew Kolodny, executive director of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing. “It’s normalizing the chronic use of opioids, which aren’t demonstrated to be safe over the long term.”

“Opioids block pain signals but can also block activity in the bowel,” said the ad, which was presented by AstraZeneca and Daiichi Sankyo. Together, they sell the drug Movantik, which treats opioid-induced constipation. Neither company produces opioids.

best stocks currently: Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.(NCLH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Teresa Rivas]

    Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCLH) was up nearly 7% on Wednesday afternoon, following its fourth-quarter earnings report.

    Norwegian said that it earned 56 cents a share, a penny ahead of analysts’ expectations. Revenue rose 8.5% to $1.13 billion, also squeaking past the $1.11 billion consensus estimate.

    For the full year, Norwegian said it expects to earn between $3.75 and $3.85 a share, with a midpoint a penny above the $3.79 average analyst estimate. It’s first-quarter EPS guidance of 36 cents also came in ahead of the 34-cent consensus.

    Instinet analyst Harry Curtiswrites that after recent missteps, it was “vital” for Norwegian’s forecast to meet expectations but not seem too optimistic, a balancing act he believes the company achieved.

    He reiterated a Buy rating and $52 price target on the stock:

    NCLHs 2017 EPS outlook ($3.75 to $3.85) brackets our forecast ($3.75) and the Streets ($3.79). However, we believe there could be upside to that range, given the positive booking and pricing trends so far this year. We remain positive on the shares of NCLH, which we believe should continue to outperform through 2017.

    Norwegian was recently up 6.8% to $51.49.

Moreover, some favorable news from certain pockets of the market helped bolster investor confidence. Toll Brothers (NYSE:TOL), Lantheus Holdings (NASDAQ:LNTH), and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NASDAQ:NCLH) were among the top performers on the day.
