  • [By George Budwell]

    The small-cap immuno-oncology company Agenus (NASDAQ:AGEN) and the inhaled insulin company MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) are prime examples of this phenomenon. Even though both of these companies have been in existence for over two decades, these two particular biotechs have failed to bring a product to market capable of generating a significant revenue stream. As a result, these two companies have essentially been forced to wipe out their early shareholders through serial dilution.

  • [By George Budwell]

    Agenus (NASDAQ:AGEN), a small-cap cancer immunotherapy and vaccine company, has started to claw its way back from a steep downturn that began last April. Specifically, the drugmaker’s shares have spiked by a healthy 29% over just the past three trading sessions. 

  • [By Cory Renauer]

    Harnessing the power of the immune system to fight cancer is a big deal and Agenus Inc. (NASDAQ:AGEN) looks like a great way to follow the trend. This stock trades like a small-cap biotech, but a couple of candidates coming through its pipeline could help push annual revenue past the $1 billion mark. Plus, by this time next year, the company could have half a dozen or so new candidates in clinical trials.

    Wynn Resorts’ (NASDAQ:WYNN) first quarterly report without founder Steve Wynn as CEO — or even owning any shares of the casino resort operator — went about as well as it could have. The sexual misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn don’t seem to have caused any disruption to the business in the U.S., and Wynn Resorts continued to take market share from competitors in Macau.

Overview

There was a good article on Progressive Railroading providing CEO commentary from each Class I rail operator for the U.S. and Canada. Generally, all executives are positive on the prospects for rail operators in 2018.

From a review of intermodal and carload traffic performance, there are strong positives including intermodal, chemicals, metals, petroleum and crushed sand and gravel. The early wildcards are coal, grain and finished vehicles and parts.

Soon-after the progressive article, analysts have jumped on the bandwagon with positive sentiments. Specifically, analysts are bullish on industry prospects and fundamentals, but also mentioned that there could be even greater investment benefits from tax reform, assuming disciplined pricing remains.
