Hot Low Price Stocks For 2019

With Amazon’s big Prime Day promotion underway, don’t think that the online giant is the only place to find its deep discounts.

A few major chains say they are matching the online giant’s low prices during the 36-hour members-only shopping extravaganza, which kicked off Monday and runs through 3 a.m. ET Wednesday.

Bed Bath & Beyond, J.C. Penney, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Michaels and Jo-Ann Stores say they will match Amazon’s prices in most cases. Their policies apply to items that are in-stock, identical and sold directly from Amazon and not one of its third-party sellers.

But other major chains plan to sit out on Amazon’s summer discount shopping spree. Target, Walmart and Best Buy officials say they won’t match the Prime Day specials because they are only available to Prime members.

What happened

After the Food and Drug Administration greenlit the use of software that can suspend insulin when its insulin pump is used in conjunction with DexCom’s (NASDAQ:DXCM) continuous glucose monitor (CGM), shares of Tandem Diabetes Care (NASDAQ:TNDM) are rallying 10.2% at 12:45 p.m. EDT on Friday.

So what

Historically, diabetes patients can spend up to 70% of their day outside their desired blood glucose range, and as a result, they’re at risk of seeing their disease progress to a point where it causes life-threatening complications.

IMAGE SOURCE: GETTY IMAGES.

In a bid to better control blood sugar levels, doctors and patients are increasingly embracing monitors that can track blood sugar levels in real time and pumps that provide background insulin. The use of these systems together can conceivably automate insulin dosing. However, software that can predict future blood sugar levels to avoid the risk of hypoglycemia, or ultra-low levels of blood sugar that can be life-threatening, is necessary for that to happen.
