Profire Energy (NASDAQ:PFIE)‘s stock had its “buy” rating restated by equities researchers at Maxim Group in a research report issued to clients and investors on Friday. They currently have a $7.00 price target on the oil and gas company’s stock. Maxim Group’s price target would suggest a potential upside of 114.07% from the stock’s previous close.
The analysts wrote, “Wednesday, after market close, PFIE announced 2Q18 results with revenue of $11.3 million, slightly above our estimate of $11.2 million, and EPS of $0.03, inline with our estimate of $0.03. We expect further penetration of PF3100 BMS systems in 2019 as the company recently received its Safety Integrity Level (SIL) certification and plans to expand its PF3100 sales force. We recognize additional opportunities for continued success internationally (MENA) and potential M&A activities in North America. We reiterate our Buy rating and $7 Price Target, which is based on a 10-year DCF and supported by a comparable company analysis.””
Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019: Bayer Aktiengesellschaft (BAYZF)

For the third quarter, the company reported cash and equivalents of $470.4 million, while net income came in at $50 million (includes a gain of $78.7 million from the Immunomedics’ warrant). Without the one-time gain, its loss of $28.7 million would still be an improvement over net loss of $31.8 million for the same quarter last year. For the fourth quarter, the company is guiding for ADCETRIS sales in the range of $82 million to $84 million (total revenue of $128 million to $130 million). In addition to the growing opportunity for ADCETRIS (peak sales in excess of $1 billion) and the intriguing prospects of tucatinib, the company has a promising pipeline of ADC candidates and immuno-oncology assets. Partnered programs with the likes of AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV), Astellas (OTCPK:ALPMY), Genmab (OTCPK:GMXAY), Bayer (OTCPK:BAYZF), Genentech and many more also lend additional credibility to the story.

As of December 2017, Greenlight Re’s major (10%+) long positions were General Motors (GM), Brighthouse Financial (BHF), gold (GLD), Bayer (OTCPK:BAYZF), and Mylan (MYL). It also holds a long position in Micron (MU), which was the best positive contributor to its portfolio in the first quarter of 2018. These long positions were balanced by shorts in Tesla (TSLA), Netflix (NFLX), and other “bubble basket” stocks. The portfolio is also short Assured Guaranty (AGO), a municipal bond insurer, a position which is hedged by a simultaneous long in Puerto Rican debt. Overall, the portfolio is 93% gross long and 65% gross short. Unlike most insurance portfolios, just 0.5% of investments are in debt instruments and, in fact, Greenlight Re’s short portfolio was 11% allocated to sovereign debt.

Franco-Nevada Corporation’s (NYSE:FNV) stock was down roughly 11% year to date through the end of May. That’s not great, but it’s even worse when you consider that streaming and royalty peer Royal Gold Inc. (NASDAQ:RGLD) is up 9% over the same span. Even silver-heavy Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE:WPM) has been doing better, down only about 1% (silver hasn’t performed as well gold in recent years). Why exactly is Franco-Nevada lagging its peers so badly?

For example, FCA was the first to throw in the towel on “cars.” Ford is now following. Lately, brands such as Chevrolet (NYSE:GM), Toyota (NYSE:TM), Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY) and Nissan (OTCPK:NSANY) have professed their enduring commitment to sedans and similar “cars.” That’s probably true – at least directionally. Still, even those automakers will need to prune at least a little bit in their car/sedan portfolios over the next generational cycle, 5-10 years at the most. But the point is that they say they will not take as big of an axe to those offerings in the U.S. market, as FCA and Ford just did.
