Biotech gets 7 drugs in partnership, 3 of which are in phase 2 testing

During a May 6 earnings conference call, the head of business development and strategy for Neurocrine Biosciences Inc (NBIX) said the company was looking for other partnerships, similar to those it had recently struck with Xenon Pharmaceuticals Inc. (XENE) and Voyager Therapeutics Inc. (VYGR).

It didn’t take long for Neurocrine to find what it was looking for, announcing on Tuesday it had inked a $2 billion pact to license seven drugs from Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. (TAK). The deal bulks up the Neurocrine pipeline, which is dominated by treatments for movement disorders, women's health and genetic diseases.

Intercept Pharmaceuticals hoping for approval on medication to compete in large and fast-growing market for NASH treatments

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is scheduled to make decisions on five therapies in the second quarter, and the one that could make the biggest impact on the company and its shares belongs to Intercept Pharmaceuticals Inc. (ICPT).

The New York-based biotech could certainly use a boost. At just over $65, the stock is off about 50% from its 52-week high. TipRanks reported that the 13 analysts following Intercept rated it a strong buy with a target price of $151, but those estimates appear to be pre-coronavirus so investors should view them skeptically.

Large allocations to the purchase of fixed assets may anticipate growth

These companies may attract the interest of investors because they have increased their capital spending significantly over the past five years. Such spending suggests that these companies likely have expectations for higher demand for their products and/or services, which would in turn produce higher sales.

Thus, investors may want to consider the following stocks as they are expected to post higher-than-average earnings per share (EPS) over the next five years following years of massive allocation of funds to capital spending for business growth.

Determining which medical technology companies can increase their stock price

As Peter Lynch noted in his book “One Up on Wall Street,” it wasn’t the gold diggers that turned significant profits during the California Gold Rush. It was the people who sold pickaxes and work clothes to the miners. In other words, you turn a profit when you have a product that is selling, not when you are still in the process of finding gold.

As medical science advances in leaps and bounds, you may have seen at least one person plugging up their bionic arm for charging at a big event. The technology doesn’t come cheap, but the companies

Temporary setbacks have created a potential buying opportunity

The biotech space provides ample opportunities for value.

Although the stock has had a rough few months, losing around 45% from its 2018 highs, Neurocrine’s strong pipeline could bring the company back in the long term.

A secondary catalyst to watch this month

Neurocrine Biosciences (NBIX) announced in April that the company’s drug Ingrezza (valbenazine) has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating tardive dyskinesia (TD) – a burdensome and often incurable form of dyskinesia. The FDA granted this application Fast Track, Priority Review and Breakthrough Therapy designations.

Currently, benzodiazepines are used to control symptoms of TD. While benzodiazepines can be effective, their use is limited by the development of tolerance, which requires ever-increasing doses to control TD symptoms. Because of the problems associated with benzodiazepines, Ingrezza is set to make a huge impact on those suffering from

Drug may offer relief to sufferers of chronic pelvic pain

AbbVie Inc. (ABBV) released encouraging data Wednesday for women with chronic pelvic pain, due to endometriosis, who are waiting for a treatment that can improve the quality of their lives.

The data demonstrate that elagolix in premenopausal women who suffer from endometriosis significantly reduces the menstrual pain (dysmenorrhea, DYS) and the nonmenstrual pelvic pain (NMPP). These important results have been announced by AbbVie in cooperation with Neurocrine Biosciences Inc. (NBIX) since Neurocrine licensed the worldwide rights to elagolix to Abbott Labs in June 2010.

Guru stock highlight

Neurocrine Biosciences (NBIX) is a pharmaceutical company with two development-stage programs focused on neurological and endocrine-based health problems. The company came to our attention after poor clinical trial results for one of its programs resulted in a 40% reduction in the share price. We invested because the issues with the trial were related to trial design, not drug efficacy. Management presented a credible plan for addressing the design issues, and the company’s valuation was capturing only a fraction of the potential cash flows that could be generated by both drug programs. Over the past year, both of Neurocrine’s drug programs

Performance in the period was aided by the strength of our investments in the financial and energy sectors.

During the one-year period ending June 30, 2015, the Meridian Contrarian Fund Legacy Class shares returned 6.84%, which compares to a return of 5.92% for its primary benchmark, the Russell 2500 Index.

Performance in the period was aided by the strength of our investments in the financial and energy sectors, as well as by avoiding the utility sector, which was among the weaker sectors in the benchmark.
