Hot Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

Keytruda is the cancer drug you cannot afford to ignore. Keytruda has proved to be complete success story across multiple indications. However, a major part of the drug’s valuation today is based on its success in non small cell lung cancer segment. And riding high on this success is Merck (NYSE:MRK). Today, for majority of investors, Merck is Keytruda and vice versa. In 2016, the drug reported revenues close to $1.4 billion, and entered the league of blockbuster therapies.

The fortunes of Merck and Keytruda have become tightly intertwined. And with patents protecting the drug till year 2028, I believe this blockbuster therapy, Keytruda and its foray in lung cancer indication, is definitely a very solid reason you should consider investing in Merck in 2017.

Keytruda is on its way to become a leader in the lung cancer segment

On October 02, 2015, FDA approved Keytruda as second line therapy for non small cell lung cancer or NSCLC, with tumors showing PD-1/PD-L1 expression equal to or greater than 1% as measured by companion diagnostic test. This approval was based on KEYNOTE-010 trial. In December 2016, Merck presented data that demonstrated durability of responses in second line NSCLC segment. Patients who had been on Keytruda therapy demonstrated two times higher overall survival as compared to those on chemotherapy.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2019

Activist investor and billionaire George Soros

A couple weeks ago we told you how Warren Buffett has enjoyed a $12.3 billion gain from the markets since the election.

Then there’s George Soros.

You see, the hedge fund activist investor bet against the “Trump Rally.”

And – as Soros does – he bet big…

How Much George Soros Has Lost in the Trump Rally

It all started when Soros returned to trading last year at his firm, Soros Fund Management LLC, which manages roughly $30 billion for the Hungarian-born billionaire and his family.

He was lured back by the opportunities to profit from what he saw as coming economic troubles following the election, according to The Wall Street Journal.

He anticipated economic turmoil, particularly if Trump won the election.

    Lawsuit after lawsuit, a billion dollars in cost overruns, taxpayer subsidies and the most expensive coal plant to operate causing electric rates to skyrocket, if this becomes the norm. The new project is called Plant Ratcliffe by Southern Co.
    Plant Ratcliffe is quite the boondoggle, but proponents say it always costs more to build the first one and costs will come down as the technology improves. More plants are in the planning stages and may bring a needed shot in the arm to mining stocks.
    Alpha Natural Resources (ANR), Walter Energy (WLT), Arch Coal (ACI), Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF), Peabody Energy (BTU), and James River Coal (JRCC) are companies that may benefit from increased demand for coal.
    Not all coal or coal companies are equal, so it’s crucial to discriminate based on your investment time-horizon goals. With that said, the announcement should have been followed by a deep sell-off in coal and utility related stocks. But something happened.
    Or, rather, didn’t happen.
    The above coal stocks didn’t sell off tremendously and are largely moving along with the rest of the market today. This is noteworthy because stocks don’t bottom on good news, they reach a bottom on awful news. Let me explain: When a stock chart continues trending lower, what you’re witnessing is investors throwing in the towel and moving on.
    Leaving aside bankruptcies for a moment, almost all stocks have a core group of investors that are commonly known as the “strong hands.” A stock is at the bottom when the weak hands are gone. At some point, distressing news (like an unfavorable EPA announcement regarding coal) hits the wire and the related stock or stocks react with little or no movement. This is what we are witnessing right now in coal-related companies.
