Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now: ZIOPHARM Oncology Inc(ZIOP)

ZIOPHARM Oncology, Inc., incorporated on May 16, 2005, is a biopharmaceutical company. The Company is seeking to acquire, develop and commercialize, on its own or with partners, a portfolio of cancer therapies through synthetic immuno-oncology. The Company’s clinical-stage product candidate, Ad-RTS-IL-12, is used with the oral activator veledimex. Its Ad-RTS-IL-12 + veledimex uses gene delivery system to produce interleukin-12 (IL-12), a potent, naturally occurring anti-cancer protein. The Company’s initial drug candidate being developed using the synthetic immuno-oncology platform is Ad-RTS-IL-12 + veledimex.

The Company in collaboration with Intrexon Corporation is focused on chimeric antigen receptor T cell (CAR+ T) products. The Company in collaboration with Intrexon plans to develop treatments for graft-versus-host disease (GvHD), a major complication of allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT), which impairs the quality of life and survival of many recipients. Allogeneic HSCT is used for the treatment of various diseases, including hematological malignancies, immunological deficiencies, as well as non-malignant conditions. Approximately 40 to 60% of HSCT recipients develop GvHD, either acute or chronic, when immune (graft) cells in a transplant patient recognize their engrafted host as foreign and attack the patient’s (host) cells. Immunosuppressive agents and systemic steroids routinely used to treat GvHD have limited efficacy and toxicity. Human studies have shown that administration of low-dose subcutaneous IL-2 in patients with steroid-refractory GvHD acts through Tregs to ameliorate its manifestations.

Ad-RTS-IL-12 + veledimex

The Company’s Ad-RTS-IL-12 + veledimex has been evaluated in two Phase II studies, the first for the treatment of metastatic melanoma, and the second for the treatment of unresectable recurrent or metastatic breast cancer. The Company is evaluating Ad-RTS-IL-12 + veledimex, in brain cancer and breast cancer. It h! as developed an adenoviral vector, Ad-RTS-IL-12, administered intratumorally under the control of the RheoSwitch Therapeutic System (RTS) expression platform. Gene expression and subsequent IL-12 protein production is tightly controlled by the activator ligand veledimex.

Ad-RTS-IL-12 + veledimex for malignant glioma

The Company has initiated the Phase I study for malignant glioma. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted orphan drug designation of Ad-RTS-IL-12 + veledimex for the treatment of malignant glioma.

Ad-RTS-IL-12 + veledimex for metastatic breast cancer and melanoma

The Company has completed the Phase II monotherapy studies in melanoma and breast cancer using Ad-RTS-IL-12 + veledimex. The Company has initiated a Phase Ib/II study of Ad-RTS-hIL-12 + veledimex following chemotherapy for the treatment of patients with locally metastatic breast cancer.

The Company competes with Novartis/University of Pennsylvania, Bluebird bio/Celgene/Baylor College of Medicine, Kite Pharma/National Cancer Institute, Juno Therapeutics/Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center/Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center/Seattle Children’s Research Institute, Cellectis/Pfizer, Adaptimmune/GSK, Celgene, NantKwest, Amgen, AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers, Incyte, Merck and Roche.

Best Stocks To Own For 2019: Brookfield Renewable Powerr Fund(BEP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP) has shed about 12% of its value this year, which is a bit of a head-scratcher since the company has gotten off to an excellent start. Not only did it post strong numbers to end 2017 and solid results in 2018’s first quarter, but it increased its distribution to investors another 5% and boosted its stake in another renewable power company. Because of that disconnect, Brookfield tops my list of renewable energy stocks that I’d buy right now.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Renewable energy is a hot sector as the world increasingly focuses on generating electricity from clean sources that provide an ever refreshed wellspring of power. But before you run out and buy just any old renewable power company, you need to step back and take a deeper look at the businesses you are considering. Two stocks you should be looking at today are Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P.’s (NYSE:BEP) and NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE), both of which have secret weapons as they grow in the hot renewable power space.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    There’s no question that a company like Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. (NYSE:BEP) is a great direct play on renewable power. Roughly 80% of the company’s power is hydroelectric, with the rest made up largely of wind and solar. Moreover, it has exposure to Brazil (20% of generation) and Columbia (15%), in addition to the United States (60%). Much of the company’s growth has come from acquisitions, and long-term contracts back up the bulk of its revenues. It’s a perfectly fine renewable power investment.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    If you’re looking for a solid dividend yield from an energy stock, two names that might be on your list are ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) and Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP). While one is the epitome of big oil and the other is more representative of the future of energy, both are known for their high dividend yields, strong cash flows that keep those payouts secure, and long track records of growing their dividend payments on a regular basis.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Pattern Energy Group Inc. (NASDAQ:PEGI) offers investors an impressive 8.4% yield. That sounds like a pretty rewarding way for income investors to invest in renewable power, which is the company’s focus. In fact, it makes renewable-power peer Brookfield Renewable Partners LP’s (NYSE:BEP) yield of 6.3% look small by comparison. But don’t chase that higher yield until you read this, because you’re likely to decide that Brookfield Renewable Partners, despite having a lower yield, is the better dividend stock.

Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019

Calavo Growers, Inc. (NASDAQ:CVGW), which I’ve dubbed a “tiny, mighty dividend stock,” reported fiscal second-quarter 2018 earnings on June 6. How has this dynamic avocado market specialist fared so far in its fiscal year? Let’s dive into the quarter’s details after first walking through headline numbers directly below.

Top 10 Stocks To Buy For 2019: Infinera Corporation(INFN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    For a great example, look no further than the recent note from MKM analyst Michael Genovese. Genovese anticipates large systems vendor Ciena (NYSE:CIEN) may end up stealing away large customer CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL) from smaller competitor Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN). That could be a huge win for Ciena and a huge blow to Infinera, and the episode is emblematic of this period in the industry.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) was the recipient of unusually large options trading activity on Thursday. Stock investors bought 3,256 put options on the company. This is an increase of approximately 841% compared to the typical daily volume of 346 put options.

    In addition to the capacity from that pipeline, railroads are looking for ways to help ease the bottleneck in the near term by shipping some crude by rail. “The [Permian] is an interesting place, and we’re definitely seeing some reduction in crude production due to the lack of pipelines,” said Beth Whited, the chief marketing officer of Union Pacific (NYSE:UNP) on the company’s second-quarter call.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

Weeks 2 and 3 presented a sort of mixed bag, placing my personal pet holding Advaxis (ADXS) on notice and ultimately bowing out of one of the lots in the plan.

So how is the plan faring? First, let’s get to the recap of the rules, which are laid out in full in the original article.

First, 6 biotech stocks were chosen to receive investments of $2,000 each, broken into 4 lots:

Short-term: To be traded at a range of 5% gain and loss. That is, sell this lot when it gains 5%, and buy back in when it falls 5% from the sell price. Near-term: Same as short-term, but with a 20% gain sell target and a 10% loss buy-in. Mid-term: Same as near-term, but with a 50% gain and loss range. Held forever: To never be sold.

I also instituted a mercy rule for the position, whereby a loss of 20% from baseline or from the past week’s holding would put the security “on notice,” and if that loss persists into the following week, then the holdings will be liquidated. In real life, this would mean cutting your losses and moving on. In the “No BS” fake world, it will be counted as an overall loss for the portfolio.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    The Trump administration is considering a 25% tariff on up to $200 billion in Chinese goods. This is the latest escalation of an ongoing trade spat that has ripped through the heartland of the United States and threatens to bring the market rally to a screeching halt. On Tuesday, soybean prices rallied more than $0.28 in Chicago on speculation that the Trump administration is looking to resolve trade relations with China. Following the White House’s announcement, soybeans gave back a majority of those gains as trade fears rattled the agriculture industry. Finally, Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) is on the verge of becoming the first $1 trillion company by market capitalization. The firm was close to topping $200 per share on Wednesday morning after a terrific earnings report after the bell yesterday.

The company went public at the very height of that adrenaline rush. If you bought in at Zynga’s peak share prices in the spring of 2012, you’ve weathered a 70% cut to your investment’s value so far.

    Even though marijuana is on its way to becoming legal in Canada and it’s been given the thumbs-up for medical purposes in 30 U.S. states, this is still very much a cash business. Federal scheduling in the U.S. ensures that access to lines of credit, loans, and even a basic checking account are few and far between. Meanwhile, in Canada, only recently have banks been given the OK to work strategically with marijuana businesses. This opens the door for armored truck and ATM service companies like Brink’s Company (NYSE:BCO) to succeed.

    Thursday was a largely down day for the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average taking the biggest hit of the major benchmarks. The global turmoil over trade got a lot closer to home as the U.S. imposed new restrictions that led the Canadian government to issue retaliatory tariffs in response. Yet many broader-based measures of the market fell only slightly, showing that much of what drives the economy isn’t as dependent on trade as traditional industrial giants. Good news also sent some key stocks higher. Madrigal Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:MDGL), Brink’s (NYSE:BCO), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Best Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now: Noble Energy Inc.(NBL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Noble Midstream (NYSE:NBLX) has a bold plan to grow its already impressive 7.4%-yielding distribution to investors by 20% per year all the way through 2022, which is one of the fastest rates in the midstream sector. Driving that growth would be the expansion of the company’s oil and gas gathering system to support the anticipated increase in production from customers like its parent, Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL).

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Fueling that forecast is the company’s ability to expand its midstream footprint to support the growth of its customers, including its parent Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL). The company operates several gathering systems in both the Permian Basin and DJ Basin that it expects to continue expanding as customers drill more wells.
