Mallinckrodt’s jaundice drug rejected by the FDA

Company: Mallinckrodt (NYSE:MNK)

Therapy: Stannsoporfin

Disease: Severe jaundice

News: MNK announced that a joint advisory committee at the FDA has voted against the risk-benefit profile of its medication stannsoporfin, which was intended to prevent severe hemolysis in newborns who are at risk of severe jaundice. The company guided that it would seek FDA input on what further data might be required in order to get a positive vote in the future.

Looking forward: And so the stannsoporfin story ends…for now! At this time, this looks like a very expensive ($80 million) mistake on the part of MNK, but I think it’s reasonable to expect that it’ll be able to resolve the data issues that sunk this application. But that’s going to take some serious time, and you can probably put this one in the back of your mind for at least another year, I’d wager.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of Coherus BioSciences (NASDAQ:CHRS) gained nearly 49% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. The company announced a global settlement with AbbVie that will allow the small-cap biopharma to commercialize a biosimilar to Humira, which was developed as CHS-1420.

    Shares of Coherus BioSciences (NASDAQ:CHRS) fell over 18% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence.

Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019: Sohu.com Inc.(SOHU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    Shares of Chinese internet company Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) fell as much as 11.8% on Wednesday, following the company’s first-quarter earnings release. The stock is down 8.4% at the time of this writing.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    The market isn’t warming up to Sohu.com’s (NASDAQ:SOHU) latest financial report. Its shares are hitting their lowest levels since the summer of 2007 after the Chinese online advertising, search, and gaming specialist posted disappointing first-quarter results on Wednesday morning. 

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL), Camping World Holdings (NYSE:CWH), and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) have taken a beating this year. They’re among the biggest losers through the first three quarters of 2018. Let’s go over why I think they have a shot at bouncing back in the next three months.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    It’s now been seven months since Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) completed its objective of spinning off Sogou. Sogou had been the fastest growing component at Sohu for years. It should have taken off after trading on its own merits, but that failed to happen. Though the shares inched slightly higher in their first few days of trading, Sogou has spent most of its time since late November as a broken IPO until it finally cracked the $13 ceiling today in intraday trading.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Sogou’s shares are prone to big swings for a couple of simple reasons.

    As a Chinese business, many American investors don’t feel connected to Sogou’s business and might not have access to some important sources of information about this company and its stock. Though Sogou has been around for nearly a decade now, it only entered the public markets in November of 2017. It’s a new ticker, untested on the market, and not always easily understood through year-over-year or longer-term analyses. At the IPO, Chinese internet giants Tencent (NASDAQOTH:TCEHY) and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) combined for a total ownership of 82% of Sogu’s business. Those stakes later declined to 71%, but Sohu and Tencent remain Sogou’s largest shareholders, with 96% of the voting power in shareholder elections and votes. Regular investors hold a very small stake in Sogou, which tends to boost the stock’s volatility.

    Moreover, Chinese regulators launched an investigation of Sogou in June, forcing the company to shut down parts of its online advertising operations for 10 days in early July. The company is accused of showing video ads that insulted a national hero. That blackout will reduce Sogou’s third-quarter revenues by a significant but unannounced amount.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) is still struggling to fire on all cylinders, but investors nonetheless bid shares of the dot-com pioneer higher on Friday after it posted mixed fourth-quarter results. Revenue clocked in at $482.2 million for the final three months of 2018, a 5% decline from a year earlier, but a 5% sequential improvement.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

I really have an active dislike for the term “blue-chip stock.”

Plain and simple: the term is outdated. A lot of large-cap familiar names are still called “blue-chip stock” when they are nothing of the kind. If you can’t rid the term “blue-chip stock” from your lexicon, then it should at least apply to a whole new stream of companies.

“Blue-chip stock” used to refer to companies that were constantly growing earnings in the high single-digits or more in terms of percentage, had a fortress balance sheet and were constantly innovating. The seven stocks I’m about to talk about have either none of these traits or, at best, have a really solid balance sheet.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: Energy Transfer Equity, L.P.(ETE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    On the surface, Energy Transfer Partners’ ultra-high-yielding payout looks like it’s on solid ground. During the first quarter of 2018, the company covered it with cash flow by a comfortable 1.1 times after adjusting for the support provided by parent company Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE), which has temporarily reduced its management fees to help its MLP fund a large slate of expansion projects. That’s a noticeable improvement from the year-ago quarter when Energy Transfer Partners would have paid out all its cash flow, and then some, if it weren’t for the assistance of Energy Transfer Equity.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: Teladoc, Inc.(TDOC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    Absent a groundswell in medical school enrollment, new models of healthcare delivery — such as telehealth — may be the only way to maintain quality of care while also increasing patient access meaningfully enough to bend the cost curve. Telehealth solutions, such as those offered by Teladoc (NYSE:TDOC), can reduce supply bottlenecks by filling empty slots in schedules and offering access outside of traditional doctor’s office hours. It frees doctors up to see more patients by reducing administrative burdens, including billing, and because telehealth doctors don’t need office space to see patients, it may provide a new, less-costly business model for providers, as well.

Shares topped $114 after the firm’s report came in line with Wall Street earnings expectations of $1.49.

Revenue of $91.1 million missed consensus expectations of $95.7 million. Ongoing weakness in the auto industry and global macroeconomic factors are hurting TrueCar and its competitors.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019: MGIC Investment Corporation(MTG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Monday was a positive day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks jumped following an uneventful weekend, tapering their gains as the session came to a close. Some had feared that China might retaliate once again after the U.S. issued a second round of tariffs against the nation with the world’s second-largest economy, but the expected fireworks didn’t come, putting market participants more at ease. The beginning of earnings season in the next week will also distract investors from geopolitical issues, perhaps allowing indexes to climb further. Yet some individual stocks had difficulties that sent their shares lower. Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), Menlo Therapeutics (NASDAQ:MNLO), and MGIC Investment (NYSE:MTG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Hot Biotech Stocks For 2019

It would be fair to say biotech has had an interesting time of it over the course of the past 15 months. Except, of course, that biotech always has an interesting time of it. The go big or go home sector of the market attracts speculators, scientists, and unsavory characters, but also attracts people hoping for critical improvements to their healthcare options.

With a lot of sentiment and sometimes too little information, it can be hard to find an edge. Throw in the political questions stemming from stories like Valeant (NYSE:VRX), Sarepta (NASDAQ:SRPT), and Mylan (NASDAQ:MYL), and the interesting times don’t appear likely to go away.

With an assist from SA Managing Editor (and CFA) Mike Taylor, we asked a few authors who focus on the biotech sector to tell us which way they think the winds might blow.

Our panel:

Bret Jensen, author of The Biotech Forum ONeil Trader, author of Growth Stock Forum Bhavneesh Sharma, author of Vasuda Healthcare Analytics Chris Lau, author of Value Stocks for DIY Investors Alexander J. Poulos, author of Undervalued Gems Wall Street Titan, author of Stem Cell Sector News and Analysis

Seeking Alpha: Investors are aware of headline political risk this year, but there’s also some regulator level confusion. On one hand, we have a recent approval decision on a six-figure drug from Sarepta with controversy over efficacy, to put it mildly. On the other hand, there’s uproar over the EpiPen, which some argue is expensive but at least is acknowledged to work. How are you evaluating the FDA’s and regulators’ posture relative to industry?
