Growth rate has been completely decimated based on its business model. The stock really came down, but bounced up in the last couple of weeks with the rest of the biotech space. It is now stuck at around the 200-day moving average. Their growth rate has come down to the low single digits, and is still trading at a pretty decent multiple, 9X earnings. If you own, consider Selling and look at something like Celgene (CELG-Q).

A very important story. They had a Hep C drug that was so good it was curing everybody, so it is running out. Everybody underestimated how fast it was happening. This is trading at about 8X earnings. Has a great dividend yield and lots of cash and an incredible balance sheet. They have an HIV drug which is very strong and does well. Feels they have to do something with their cash and move in a different direction by making an acquisition. At this point, the stock is really giving the company zero value for their Hep C business. There is some good value in their pipeline. You aren’t paying a lot for the company right now with their free cash flow yield of almost 9%.

(Market Call Minute.) Pretty much a one product company treating hepatitis C. Sales are falling and the price is being challenged. The good news is that they have a huge cache of cash, 30%.

This is a volatile stock, which means the option premiums are pretty expensive on it. If you are bullish on this, he wouldn’t Buy an option, but would be more inclined to write a Put. Not sure he would buy an option on this.

His opinion on this is quite good. It has been under pressure for a number of reasons. A lot of these companies have been under pressure for pricing. There has been some speculation that some of their drugs have a lot of competition. They have an HIV drug. This looks so cheap at this time. He shows a 33% Return on Invested Capital. They used to have a 60%, but a 33% is still very good. The valuation is almost too good to be true.

This is under pressure. Technically, you have declining fundamental trends. It is trading at a reduced valuation compared to historical comps.

(A Top Pick April 21/16. Down 33.5%.) World’s largest provider of HIV medication. In the last 3-4 years, it became the market leader in providing hepatitis C medication, which actually cures the patient. It has a 13% free cash flow yield and trades at about 8X earnings with over a 3% dividend that will increase every year for the next several years. This is worth in the $90’s.

The company invented a drug that didn’t just help the patients, it cured the disease within 12 months. It would have been better business for them if they had invented a drug that merely made the disease better. A very profitable company, but he wouldn’t want to be an owner because revenues are going to be going down.

This has been one of his worst performers. His cost base is around $80. Trading at 8X this year’s earnings. He is going to give this one more quarter. We need to see their pipeline start to fill out and we need to see M&A coming to progression.

A biotech stock that screens very well. On a valuation and cash basis, it looks great. The problem is, there are really only 2 products that account for the bulk of their revenue, and they are coming on patent cliffs. This gives increasing competition, so there are dramatic declines in revenue generated by these drug franchises. The biotech sector has gone from being a darling in mid-2014 into a discount position. She hasn’t played the biotech space, just because she sees it as a binomial event.

This has a drug that actually cures people so that they don’t need the drug anymore, so it’s market is getting smaller by the day. They are sitting on a ton of cash, which at some point is going to be used to buy something. If you are prepared to wait, this is a company that is going to need to do something. A higher risk, so he wouldn’t have it in his portfolios.

A big winner for him for about 5-6 years, but when Hillary Clinton did her famous tweet, he sold his holdings. Their hepatitis C drug basically eradicated the disease. They have an HIV drug regimen that is turning out great results, but is expensive. It could be a great long term franchise for them. This looks really interesting, and would get back into the name on a break out. Trading at only 8X forward earnings.
