Hot Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

As I said in a recent piece on PRA Health Sciences (NASDAQ:PRAH), there’s a lot to like about the contract research organization (or CRO) sector as trial complexity increases, R&D budgets continue to grow, and drug companies look to shift toward their specialties and more variable-expense models. Within this competitive space, INC Research (NASDAQ:INCR) has looked to stand out with an intense focus on Phase II-IV support, a greater skew towards smaller companies, and a more intense focus on a few specific therapeutic indications.

Whether this differentiated strategy will work is (and/or how well), in my mind, the key question for the stock. What INC Research is doing makes sense, but it’s a riskier strategy given how much spending is accounted for by larger companies and the reliance of smaller companies on market-based funding. Performance has been more erratic here of late, with soft trends in new bookings (although the company tends to be conservative here). That said, if INC can navigate through this tough stretch and drive long-term revenue growth in the high single digits, with FCF growth in the double digits, the shares look undervalued below $50.

5 More Aetna-CVS Deal Details, from Aetna’s SEC Filings

‘Leave Your Checkbook at Home’: New Seminar Alert Update

America’s Retirement System Is Too Inconsistent

Some House members are fighting to give state insurance commissioners the final say when commissioners and the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) get into fights over jurisdiction.

Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., has introduced H.R. 3746, the Business of Insurance Regulatory Reform Act of 2017 bill.

Provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act, the act that created the CFPB, already limit the CFPB’s ability to regulate insurance. The act blocks the agency from regulating the business of insurance, except in some cases in which providing insurance coverage is closely related to providing credit.

H.R. 3746 would further restrict the CFPB’s ability to get involved with insurance.

The bill would limit the CFPB’s ability to regulate any person overseen by a state insurance regulator.

free penny stock picks: iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tom Gentile]

    An ETF is a fund that tracks indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500. ETFs basically let you trade an entire sector instead of having to pick and choose specific stocks to trade within a sector. ETFs are also a great way for you to hedge against rising interest rates. When it comes to equities, a good ETF to monitor is the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (NYSE Arca: DIA). For bonds, the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (NYSE Arca: TLT) is a good way to gauge the bullishness or bearishness of the overall bond market.
