Top Biotech Stocks For 2018

On Wednesday, ourUnder the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested small cap industrial biotechnology stock Amyris Inc (NASDAQ: AMRS) as a long trade:

Amyris has been on our watchlist for a while. We like it because it’s mostly shrugged off the recent marketwide weakness. But, it’s done so within the context of a bigger-picture recovery from a major pullback several months ago. We’re starting to see higher highs on a regular basis now, and we’re seeing them on higher volume. Yet, there’s plenty of room to keep running.

OurUnder the Radar Moversnewsletter would have a further discussion about Amyris Incs technical chart along with a long trading strategy:

Top Biotech Stocks For 2018: Power Solutions International, Inc.(PSIX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brent Slava]

    Power Solutions International Inc (NASDAQ: PSIX) shares plunged as much as 30 percent Tuesday on a report the company would be delisting from Nasdaq Inc (NASDAQ: NDAQ).

Top Biotech Stocks For 2018: Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.(WMT)

Advisors’ Opinion:


    One chief concern voiced by analysts is how effectively Best Buy will compete during the holidays with discounters such as Walmart (WMT) and Target (TGT) in the electronics and home theater categories. Each big box retailer has made efforts of late to increase the number of popular high-definition televisions and related accessories they sell, while also stepping up their discounting. They have also moved to improve their overall assortments in electronics and bolster customer service, most notably at Target.

    Standing out from the crowd is not something we expect from Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE: WMT). After all, Walmart practically defines the crowd.

    But the world’s largest retailer is not only going after the mass market this holiday. Walmart is trying a variety of things to make itself stand out, not just from the crowd, but from the 800-pound online sales gorilla,

    Workday shares finished up 10% in the wake of news that the HR cloud-computing specialist had signed up Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) as a customer for its software platform. The SEC filing that Workday submitted explained that Wal-Mart had purchased subscriptions to its Workday Human Capital Management, Recruiting, Learning, and Planning services. Yet even though investors were generally pleased with the move, Workday didn’t take the opportunity to update its financial guidance for the current of coming fiscal year. Nevertheless, many believe the Wal-Mart agreement could be a game-changer for Workday, and at the very least, it will ease any concerns that competitors were leaving Workday behind.

    Walmart’s(NYSE:WMT) latest investor meeting basically conveyed to investors that the company would remain a "work in progress" for a number of years. Flat earnings growth has already been guided for next year, which may cap gains in the share price going forward. Nevertheless, astute investors will be looking to see if these current elevated investments will indeed pay dividends. E-commerce in the US has to produce a big top-line number, in the absence of which, I foresee the stock continuing to sell off from here. Also interested in technology stocks?

Top Biotech Stocks For 2018: Compass Diversified Holdings(CODI)

Advisors’ Opinion:


    Compass Diversified Holdings (CODI) seeks to invest in manufacturing, distribution, consumer products, and business services sectors.

    One thing I like about Compass is its strict definitions of its acquisition strategy. They have a six-step process of identifying companies to acquire that reads simply, but has lead to astounding success.
