Hot Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

My Top Pick for speculators for the coming year is a biotech company, explains leading growth and income stock specialist Crista Huff, editor of Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor.

Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX) is prominent for its world-leading treatments for cystic fibrosis. Vertex is expected to outperform its peers in earnings growth through 2020.

Vertex is expected to report earnings per share of $2.27 in 2017 (December year-end), reflecting 195% earnings growth. This aggressive growth stock has a 2017 price/earnings ratio of 34.

As you know, pharmaceutical stocks got left behind in investors’ post-election race to own financial and basic industry stocks.

But the benefit of sector rotations is that we get to buy shares of healthy, growing companies while their prices are low.

In December, the company announced that it had come to a pricing and reimbursement agreement with Germany on Orkambi, a Vertex treatment for cystic fibrosis. This is bullish news.

    The stock market came into the new week on a negative note, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average seeing the biggest declines among the major benchmarks. Renewed trade fears and political concerns out of Washington seemed to worry investors, and some trepidation about the speed with which interest rates have risen in recent days also weighed on some portions of the market. Yet some individual companies had good news that sent their shares higher despite the downbeat mood generally. Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX), Amarin (NASDAQ:AMRN), and California Resources (NYSE:CRC) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
