Even when you take into account the income that bond ETFs provide, the iShares fund’s total return is still -7%.

    Similar strength was seen from microcap Galmed Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GLMD), which rose by more than 150% during a single trading session two weeks ago despite mixed results. The move followed the release of phase 2b data from its 52-week Arrest study for NASH drug hopeful Aramchol. In that trial, a statistically significant reduction in liver fat was noted with one of the two doses (the 400 mg dose). However, the 600 mg dose led to a statistically significant improvement in overall NASH resolution (19.2% vs. 7.5%) and NASH resolution without worsening of fibrosis (16.7% vs. 5%) relative to the placebo.

    Shares of the clinical-stage biotech Galmed Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GLMD) are on absolute fire this morning, thanks to a positive midstage trial readout for its experimental nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) drug Aramchol.

Curiously, though, patients receiving the higher dose of 600 mg apparently only showed a statistically significant drop in liver fat relative to placebo patients in a post-hoc analysis, according to the press release.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate. While this may seem like a boring deal, Blackstone is buying a business that churns out cold hard cash for its investors. We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline. We’re going to be discussing one of the best real estate opportunities available very soon – so keep an eye out for updates.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

Following past boom/bust cycles, the oil business appears to have bottomed in February 2016 at $27 a barrel. The bruising multi-year bust in crude oil prices was the biggest reason for the world stock market sell-off from late 2015 to early 2016 of roughly 15% overall. The cruel irony of ultra-low prices is its disruptive effect on regular exploration activity. A short-term oil market depression in expectations disproportionately slashes oil drilling activity. Oil exploration budgets for 2017 are down 65% from 2014 and the smallest in 12 years, DESPITE a record estimate for global demand next year. In the long-run, oil & gas development and production may fail to keep pace with the steady growth in total demand. Will the 2015-16 “bust” sow the seeds of the next “boom” phase in pricing?

    Regions Financial Corp (NYSE: RF) draws nearly two-thirds of its deposit base from consumers and in just six states. This leaves it exposed to regional risks as well as a weaker consumer if inflation and low wage growth continue. Shares have outperformed the sector with a 30% run over the last year and trade for 1.4-times book value, a 49% premium to the five-year average of 0.93-times. The bank was small enough to avoid many of the regulatory hurdles after the recession and may not benefit as much as peers in deregulation.

Despite the lackluster economic headlines and so-so pricing, commodities aren’t being used less and less. Indeed, most commodities continue to see growing consumption. It’s not only a scenario that works in favor of young-and-hungry company Double Crown Resources Inc. (OTCMKTS:DDCC), but what makes Double Crown such a compelling opportunity is that it’s rather insensitive to commodity price fluctuation.

What’s the biggest risk and hassle of shipping things like pellets or beans or salt? Normally they’re delivered in drybulk vessels, which works, but is rather ineffective. At various points between a supplier and a customer, such goods have to be split up, re-routed, taken off a boat and put on a train (or vice versa). Not only do all the middlemen get expensive, mistakes and spillage cost money.

    Shares of Valeant (NYSE:VRX) jumped more than 14% in pre-market trading yesterday, after the Canadian drug maker announced its long-awaited asset sale plans. The stock later gave away some of its gains after Moody’s released a report stating that the asset sales will not impact its credit rating or outlook, though Valeant’s bond prices jumped by 4.5%. Valeant is a classic example of a shareholder value destroyer. Once the darling of Wall Street, the stock has lost more than 90% of its value since its peak in 2014 and is down by more 80% in the last one year. The stock has dragged portfolios of the likes of Bill Ackman and Prof. Aswath Damodaran. However, the asset saleprovides a ray of hope for Valeant’s shareholders.
