Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Own Right Now

On August 30, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Novartis’ (NYSE:NVS) Erelzi, a biosimilar to Amgen’s (NASDAQ:AMGN) biggest seller, Enbrel. Erelzi is the second biosimilar available in the U.S. after Zarxio, also by Novartis, and again a biosimilar to another of Amgen’s top products, Neupogen. Amgen has been trying its best to offset these challenges by advancing new products. For example, the company earned a positive opinion last week from the European Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use for the approval of Parsabiv to treat secondary hyperparathyroidism; but there are other setbacks as well, such as receiving a Complete Response Letter a month prior from the FDA for the same indication.

In the past 21 months, Amgen’s recently approved products in the U.S. included IMLYGIC (in October 2015), Repatha ( September 2015), Corlanor (April 2015), and BLINCYTO (December 2014). Altogether, these four netted less than $60 million of Amgen’s $4,317 million in U.S. second quarter product sales. BLINCYTO’s share will likely increase, as it was correctly predicted to gain an expanded label for pediatric use in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) on September 1. Investors should be further encouraged by broad coverage of these new products by the nation’s largest health plans (Table 1).
