This Is Why Biotech Stocks May Explode Again

Reminder: Pharmboy and Ilene are available to chat with Members.

Here's an interesting article from Investor's Business Daily arguing that biotech stocks are beginning to recover from their recent declines, notwithstanding current weakness.

This Is Why Biotech Stocks May Explode Again

By 

Excerpt:

After a three-year bull run that more than quadrupled its value by its peak last July, IBD’s Medical-Biomed/Biotech Industry Group plunged 50% by early February, hurt by backlashes against high drug prices and mergers that seek to lower corporate taxes.

[...]

The group was up by even more before taking some hits over the past two weeks on negative earnings news from several industry players. But fund managers tell IBD the rebound is here. 

Why? For one, they say, the spate of bad news has already been factored into stock prices. But more than that, they see a climate favoring rejuvenated M&A, hot drugs in the new-product pipeline and pricing power for innovate products.

Bottom line: The positive factors that drove the runup never went away, they say. They just got drowned out by the noise.

“A very key point is that this group is a very high-beta group — particularly the small- to midcap stocks. Since they don’t have sales, they don’t have earnings,” said Tom Vandeventer, portfolio manager at Tocqueville Asset Management.

“The history of this group is that elevated macro uncertainty definitely hits (it),” Vandeventer said. “My own opinion is this group trades more on sentiment than on fundamentals during those time periods.”

Endo International plc – Ordinary Shares (ENDP) Collapses Taking Hedge Fund Returns With It

Reminder: Pharmboy and Ilene are available to chat with Members.

By Jacob Wolinsky. Originally published at ValueWalk.

Endo International plc – Ordinary Shares (ENDP) shares are crashing and when I say crashing I do not mean one percent or two percent or five percent or ten percent but at the time of this writing 38 percent. The biotech company is having a Valeant style crash and like Valeant ENDP is a big hedge fund hotel stock and it is likely killing returns for many, unless there is a big rebound soon.

As ZeroHedge notes (parenthesis ours):

The pain, however, is especially acute for a lot of hedge funds, because as Goldman reminds us after the spectacular blow ups of Valeant and Allergan, and recently, the plunge in uber hedge fund hotel AAPL, Endo itself is one of the stocks that has the highest hedge fund concentration in the S&P.

Who are these hedge funds? Most of the usual suspects including Visium (which is also having other issues), Viking Global (more pain), Paulson (shocker), Brahman, MSD and of course countless bank prop desks as listed below.

So if we report next week that the "smart money outflows" have continued for a record 15th week, we will know who the weekly scapegoat is for the latest redemption deluge as panicking hedge funds are forced to liquidate other assets to cover for their massive P&L blow ups in ENDP this morning.

Cantor Says Relypsa’s Veltassa Metrics Look Favorable

Reminder: Pharmboy is available to chat with Members, comments are found below each post.

Positive Data Points For Veltassa Launch

Veltassa metrics look favorable so far, including a low payer rejection rate of ~20 percent, conversion from starter pack to prescriptions between 50 and 60 percent and in-line gross-to-net discount of approximately 25 percent.

Veltassa sales, albeit modest, were ahead of expectations. Veltassa sales came in at $0.6 million, compared to the 1Q16 estimate of $0.25 million. Relypsa had previously reported 1,155 outpatient prescriptions and 374 hospital/institution units sold in the quarter.

“Excluding gross-to-net discounts, sales would have been $0.8 million. Our expectation for 1H:16 has been modest, as we expect 2H:16, and in particular 4Q:16 to create visibility on Veltassa's sales potential,” analyst Mara Goldstein wrote.

Relypsa’s shares have come under pressure because investors may be viewing the debt financing as a major obstacle to a potential takeout of the company, Goldstein commented, while adding, “We continue to like the shares because of our view of the potential of Veltassa and hyperkalemia market overall.” She expects 3Q16 to be an inflection point for Veltassa, and could result in a realignment of valuation.

PRGO, VRX and the Papa of “Strong Shareholder Orientation”

Reminder: Pharmboy and Ilene are available to chat with Members.

By Ilene 

Remember this? It was Monday. PRGO is down from around $130 to under $100 since I started following it LAST WEEK. That's down almost 25% in a week, and almost 50% in the last year. I commented: 

"Perrigo CEO Joseph Papa leaves Perrigo (PRGO) to lead Valeant (VRX) while PRGO issues a warning about missing earnings expectations. Not surprisingly, PRGO stock plummeted today. 

Robert Ingram, Chairman of the [Valeant] Board, stated, "The Board has conducted a thorough search process and believes that Joe is the ideal leader for Valeant at this time. He has a strong shareholder orientation, a background in science, and an unmatched track record of accomplishments, highlighted by his ability to lead companies through times of transition and drive excellence across commercial, manufacturing and R&D platforms. In addition, fostering an ethical culture and creating opportunities for professional development have always been high priorities for Joe, and we look forward to Joe's arrival at Valeant" (Valeant names Papa CEO after he resigns from Perrigo).

"Reuters reports that Mr. Shareholder Orientation became 'well-known on Wall Street last year when Dublin-based Perrigo rebuffed a $26 billion takeover by Mylan NV, the largest-ever hostile bid decided by a shareholder vote.' Perrigo's market cap has now dropped to around $14.2 billion [now $13.9 billion] — down over 18% today alone -- making Papa look foolish for rejecting that buyout offer."

So after successfully (but not intelligently) fighting a $26 billion hostile takeover bid from Mylan, Perrigo reports disappointing quarterly results and it "slashes its outlook" (Perrigo shares tumble as CEO leaves for Valeant, guidance cut again). The stock has been in free fall and Papa is described as having a "strong shareholder orientation" and an "ethical culture."

While many were congratulating VRX for recruiting Papa to be its CEO, Jim Cramer wrote,

Perrigo's (PRGO) heartbreaking. How could Joe Papa, the man who was so intertwined with Perrigo for so long, the man who came on Mad Money and argued there was so much more value to the company than the price Mylan put on it — some 80 points higher than where it went out —

Sarepta Plunges 50% After FDA Rejects Key Drug

Sarepta Plunges 50% After FDA Rejects Key Drug

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

2016 has been a tempestuous year for Serepta shareholders. From over $40 to just $10 and then the miracle ramp from february back to $25 before the writing on the wall ahead of last night's FDA decision and now – following yesterday's monstrous short-squeeze (36% surge), a 50% collapse to $8 – a 4 year low for yet another Biotech darling of old. This morning's collapse comes after the FDA voted that SRPT's muscular dystrophy drug was not effective

As Bloomberg reports,

An FDA advisory panel voted 7-3 with 3 abstentions that Sarepta’s single historically controlled study doesn’t provide substantial evidence that eteplirsen is effective for treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).

Some panel members raised questions about study design, said more data are needed.

Not a great morning for Stevie Cohen who just upped his stake (seems he did not get the nod this time)…

Any questions, refer to Christopher Marai or Chad Messer (PhD!)…





Perrigo Company plc (PRGO) Tanks As CEO Leaves For Valeant (VRX)

Perrigo Company plc (PRGO) Tanks As CEO Leaves For Valeant (VRX)

By Jacob Wolinsky. Originally published at ValueWalk.

Perrigo Company plc (PRGO) Tanks As CEO Leaves For Valeant (VRX) – it was a decent day to be a VRX shareholder and a bad day to be a PRGO and if your initials are JP it was a really bad day … being shareholders of both companies. As JPMorgan notes: This morning, Perrigo announced the appointment of John Hendrickson (former President) as CEO, replacing Joe Papa who is set to become the CEO of Valeant. The company also provided disappointing preliminary 1Q results and significantly lowered full year 2016 EPS to $8.20-$8.60 (vs. prior range of $9.50-$9.80) due to Rx pricing pressure, continued underperformance of the Branded Consumer business, and lower expectations for new product launches.

Perrigo Company plc CEO leaves for VRX analysts react

RBC

There will be several who focus on recent challenges and the need for someone from the outside to come in and help turn PRGO around. But on the other hand, John Hendrickson has been with PRGO since 1989 and led key operations including VP of Manufacturing to EVP and General Manager of Consumer Health to its current President among others and this should minimize any disruption at a time where operational focus is critical. He also understands the Consumer Health business well which is the highest value part of PRGO’s business. PRGO also mentioned that Omega head Marc Coucke’s Board nomination has been withdrawn by the nominating and governance committee.

Morgan Stanley

New CEO has strong experience at Perrigo Company plc. Mr. John Hendrickson has served as President of PRGO since October 2015, following his prior roles as EVP, Global Operations & Supply Chain (2006 -2015) and the head of US Consumer Healthcare (2003-2006). A 27-year veteran at Perrigo, he joined the company in 1989. With the resignation of current Chairman and CEO Joseph Papa, the role of Chairman will now be separated from the CEO role. The board has elected Independent Director Laurie Brlas as PRGO new Chairman.

The Michael Pearson Era Is Officially Over: Valeant Appoints Joseph Papa As Chairman And CEO

Reminder: Ilene and Pharmboy are available to chat with Members, comments are found below each post.

Perrigo CEO Joseph Papa leaves Perrigo (PRGO) to lead Valeant (VRX) while PRGO issues a warning about missing earnings expectations. Not surprisingly, PRGO stock plummeted today. 

Robert Ingram, Chairman of the [Valeant] Board, stated, "The Board has conducted a thorough search process and believes that Joe is the ideal leader for Valeant at this time.  He has a strong shareholder orientation, a background in science, and an unmatched track record of accomplishments, highlighted by his ability to lead companies through times of transition and drive excellence across commercial, manufacturing and R&D platforms.  In addition, fostering an ethical culture and creating opportunities for professional development have always been high priorities for Joe, and we look forward to Joe's arrival at Valeant" (Valeant names Papa CEO after he resigns from Perrigo).

Reuters reports that Mr. Shareholder Orientation became "well-known on Wall Street last year when Dublin-based Perrigo rebuffed a $26 billion takeover by Mylan NV, the largest-ever hostile bid decided by a shareholder vote." Perrigo's market cap has now dropped to around $14.2 billion — down over 18% today alone -- making Papa look foolish for rejecting that buyout offer.

Papa’s departure comes just months after he successfully beat back a $26 billion hostile takeover bid from Mylan [MYL] spearheading a campaign that ultimately persuaded shareholders to reject Mylan’s bid.

Since then, though, Perrigo has reported disappointing quarterly results and slashed its outlook. (Perrigo shares tumble as CEO leaves for Valeant, guidance cut again)

Papa's recent record at PRGO reveals not only bad judgment but also, more disturbing, a lack of ordinary CEO loyalty. As Jim Cramer writes,

Perrigo's (PRGO) heartbreaking. How could Joe Papa, the man who was so intertwined with Perrigo for so long, the man who came on Mad Money and argued there was so much more value to the company than the price Mylan put on it — some 80 points higher than where it went out — just leave for Valeant (VRX)? How could he leave with a huge shortfall and some weird impairment charge about an acquisition that Papa crowed about, Omega, as a way to get international exposure?

Perrigo: BTFD – Times Two?

Reminder: Ilene is available to chat with Members, comments are found below each post.

Update: PRGO may be losing its CEO to Valeant: Valeant’s Latest Acquisition Target: Perrigo’s CEO?. This news is knocking the price down into the low $120s. Paul says he is buying more shares and selling 2018 puts with a strike price of $150. See the screenshot below. Paul sold those three 2018 $150 puts.

Paul writes, "A forced change at the CEO level and PRGO’s depressed share price might induce management to reconsider its refusal to sell at above $200 when Mylan came calling last year. Shareholders are unhappy meaning something is likely being planned to get the stock moving again."

Updated chart:

As originally posted April 20, 2016. 

On June 10, 2015, Paul Price gave us a trade idea on BAX. Baxter Int. (BAX) was trading at around $66/share and scheduled to split off Baxalta (BXLT), its BioScience division, in the ratio of one share of BXLT for each share of BAX. BXLT is now at $40.65 and BAX is at $43.40. 

Baxter Int. (BAX) is splitting off its BioSciences division into a new company called Baxalta. Shares of Baxalta will be given as a tax-free dividend, in the ratio of one to one, to BAX holders on record on June 17, 2015. 

If you bought BAX, and held both companies after the split, till today, you'd have about a 27% gain. (Both Phil and Paul also suggested selling puts, see the article for more details.)

Now, for about a month, Paul's been suggesting buying and/or selling puts on Perrigo (PRGO, $129) at TheStreet.com's Real Money Pro (paywall) and Guru Focus. PRGO has been languishing around $128 – 130 and he thinks this area makes a good entry point for a longer term trade. Here are several excerpts from Paul's recent article at Real Money Pro with some updated charts. 

Healthcare products provider Perrigo (PRGO) has a fabulous long-term record. The stock dropped sharply on Feb. 18, 2016, as the firm took a charge in its latest quarter for costs associated with fighting off a hostile takeover attempt from Mylan (MYL).

Baxter’s Spinoff

Reminder: Pharmboy and Ilene are available to chat with Members, comments are found below each post.

Baxter Int. (BAX) is splitting off its BioSciences division into a new company called Baxalta. Shares of Baxalta will be given as a tax-free dividend, in the ratio of one to one, to BAX holders on record on June 17, 2015. That means, if you want to receive the Baxalta dividend, you need to buy the stock this week (on or before June 12).

The Baxalta Spinoff

By Ilene with Trevor of Lowenthal Capital Partners and Paul Price

In its recent filing with the SEC, Baxter provides:

“This information statement is being furnished in connection with the distribution by Baxter International Inc. (Baxter) to its shareholders of approximately 80.5% of the outstanding shares of common stock of Baxalta Incorporated (Baxalta), a wholly owned subsidiary of Baxter that will hold directly or indirectly the assets and liabilities associated with Baxter’s biopharmaceuticals business. To implement the distribution, Baxter will distribute approximately 80.5% of the shares of Baxalta common stock on a pro rata basis to the Baxter shareholders in a manner that is intended to be tax-free for U.S. federal income tax purposes.”

“As a result of the separation, each Baxter shareholder will receive one share of Baxalta common stock for every Baxter share of common stock held on June 17, 2015, the record date for the distribution.”

Trevor Lowenthal at Lowenthal Capital Partners, Paul Price and I have been reviewing Baxter and its upcoming spinoff of Baxalta. We believe that the spinoff will unleash value from the Baxalta bioscience division of the company and that the sum of the BAX parts will prove to be greater than the whole.  Baxalta should benefit from growing market penetration for Advate, the number one selling therapy in its hemophilia franchise, along with the approval of important new products. This should enhance long-term value for current BAX shareholders as Baxalta's new products hit the market and as the independent company gets priced more in line with its growth prospects. 

In April, Trevor Lowenthal shared his thoughts on BAX in Going Long On Baxter For An Optimistic 2016. To summarize:

  • Baxter has experienced several lackluster quarters, but the company's revenues are growing and its positive outlook

Can Protalix BioTherapeutics Deliver?

Reminder: Pharmboy is available to chat with Members, comments are found below each post.

Here's an update on a stock that Pharmboy is well familiar with, PLX. Pharmboy provided his thoughts for this article which was published by Lowenthal Capital Partners, and which I contributed to them. One reader asked the question: While PLX has sufficient cash for another year's operation, it needs to conserve resources and will likely need to raise money in the future. Would you care to venture a guess as to when you believe they will raise money (and what type vehicle they will use)?

Pharmboy's response: They will sell stock, and my guess is in 4Q15. I agree--selling stock is probably on the horizon sooner rather than later. Let's hope they get the stock moving higher before then. ~ Ilene 

Can Protalix BioTherapeutics Deliver?

Protalix BioTherapeutics is a small biotech company that is working on developing clinically superior versions of recombinant therapeutic proteins for the treatment of genetic disorders, such as Gaucher's disease (GD) and Fabry disease (FD). It is based in Israel and was founded in 1993.

PLX is using its plant cell-based system, ProCellEx, to produce recombinant proteins with competitive advantages over existing recombinant protein therapies for indications that are known to be amenable to therapeutic protein replacement. The ProCellEx system is more robust and less expense than mammalian cell and yeast cell-based processes. Further, the ProCellEx system may produce biotherapeutics that can be delivered orally.

Currently, PLX has one recombinant therapeutic protein product on the market called taliglucerase alfa. Taliglucerase alfa is used for enzyme replacement therapy in Type 1 GD. It is being marketed with Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) under the brand name Elelyso.

PLX also has four potential recombinant protein drugs in early stages of development. PLX's active investigational programs address Gaucher's disease, Fabry disease, immune and inflammatory diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, and cystic fibrosis.

While PLX has sufficient cash for another year's operation, it needs to conserve resources and will likely need to raise money in the future.

Given the comparative cost effectiveness and ease of use of ProCellEx in generating large quantities of therapeutic proteins, with the potential for effective oral delivery, I believe PLX is an interesting biotech speculation.

Two Centuries of Parasitic Economics

By Jacob Wolinsky. Originally published at ValueWalk.

The work of independent scholar, Basil Al-Nakeeb, ‘Two Centuries of Parasitic Economics: The Struggle for Economic and Political Democracy on the Eve of the Financial Collapse of the West’ walks readers through a chronology of flawed economic thought and the inferior theories produced as a result. But Al-Nakeeb takes his arguments one step further – by proposing an alternative and efficient macroeconomic blueprint built on a foundation of efficient taxes, finance and fair, just political democracy.

Understanding Brexit: The Powerless Press Their Thumb In The Eye Of The Power Elite

Courtesy of Charles Hugh-Smith at OfTwoMinds

The premier strategy for retaining power is to give the powerless a carefully managed illusion of decision-making and autonomy. Having a say over one's life and choices is called agency, and it is the illusion of agency that makes democracy such a powerful tool of control.

The second most effective means of maintaining power is to limit the choices offered the powerless. Offering the powerless false choices, i.e. the choice between two functionally equivalent options, provides the comforting illusion of agency while insuring that the status quo Power Elites remains in charge, regardless of the choice made by the powerless.

For example, give the powerless a choice between Tweedle-Dum (Republicans/Tories) and Tweedle-Dee (Democrats/Labour). Whomever they elect...

Mapping The Market

Thoughts on Brexit

I have mixed feelings about Brexit today. Clearly the European institution need reforming. The addition of so many countries in the last 20 years has created a top heavy administration. The Euro adds more complexities to the equation as the ECB policies cannot fit every country's problem. On the other hand, a unified Europe has advantages as well – some countries have benefited from the integration.

For Britain, it's hard to say what the final price will be. My guess is that Scotland might now vote for independence as they supported staying in Europe overwhelmingly. Northern Ireland might be tempted to leave as well so possibly RIP UK in the long run. I was talking to some French people and they were saying that now there might be no incentive for France to stop immigrants from crossing over to the UK like they do now and simply allow for travel there and let the UK deal with them. The end game is not clear to anyone at the moment....
