- The ONLY Way to Play Markets Like These
Warren Buffett said, "Price is what you pay... value is what you get."
The best investor in the world knows the only way to prosper (especially in markets like these)... is to invest in VALUE.
But this $2 stock could be the last value play in the market today.
Shares of the biotech firm have slid 46 percent in the past year. The company has about 10 percent of its share price in cash and has no debt and is working on novel cancer immunotherapies, with a pending candidate in a Phase IIb clinical trial.
Action to take: As with any promising drug company working on a small pipeline, a big success could lead to a big move higher in shares, and the company’s potential buyout from one of the larger pharmaceutical or biotech names.
Given the high insider ownership here and the persistent buying in spite of the poor share performance last year, the stock looks like an interesting buy here with plenty of potential upside on any positive development.
For traders, shares are the only way to go. The company has a decent market cap at around $260 million, but there are no options to trade on this small-cap biotech right now.
