VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Premier Health Group Inc. (CSE: PHGI, OTCQB: PHGRF, Frankfurt: 6PH) (the “Company” or “Premier Health”), a Company focused on developing innovative approaches that combine human skill based expertise with emerging technologies for the healthcare industry, is pleased to announce the launch of an international expansion strategy to broaden its reach through its medical cannabis initiatives. As more countries legalize medical cannabis, Premier Health will be focusing on selling its comprehensive Electronic Medical Record (EMR) platform with medical cannabis software integration for education, decision support, and the prescription of medical cannabis to fast-growing markets in countries such as the US, the UK and Australia.

StockPrice.com Report: Opportunity Ahead for This Healthcare Stock

The legalization of medical cannabis is projected to boost the demand for cannabis for medical use as a substitute for traditional medicines. Approximately 30 countries have already legalized medical cannabis in some capacity, as well as a small handful of others that allow its use within strict guidelines, such as in the form of cannabis-derived pharmaceuticals. According to a report by Zion Market Research, the global medical cannabis market was valued at approximately USD $11.8 billion in 2017 and is expected to generate revenue of around USD $40.9 billion by the end of 2024. In addition, according to P&S Market Research, the global EMR market is projected to attain a size of $30.4 billion by 2023.

The role of cannabis in treating medical conditions is continuously expanding to help patients with acute and chronic symptoms. Currently, there is a critical gap between the patient’s need for medical cannabis, and the physician’s comfort and knowledge to prescribe it. This knowledge gap is even more widespread in countries that are behind Canada in its adoption of medical cannabis. In addition, research into the safety and efficacy of cannabis has traditionally been very difficult. Premier Health is looking to fill that gap by using clinically led, evidence-based data which will be embedded directly in the Company’s EMR software to help guide doctors to the appropriate medical cannabis product and dosing. The software will be further tailored to the regulatory and approval procedures associated with the different jurisdictions.

“With the increasing awareness and demand from patients around the use of medical cannabis, we are aiming to provide the best possible information and appropriate tools to physicians so they can make informed decisions about their patients’ health,” said Dr. Essam Hamza, CEO of Premier Health. “As a pioneer in the space, Canada is at the forefront of this changing landscape. Our focus will be to bring credible physician-backed cannabis education to primary care physicians, where knowing your patient is an essential element of practice. Additionally, by innovating and integrating these increasingly in demand capabilities, Premier Health will be equipped to significantly increase its market share of the $30 billion EMR market.”

In order to gain traction in various jurisdictions, the Company will be leveraging existing global relationships and will provide further updates in Q3-19.

After A Strong First Half, What’s Next For These Two Stock?

 Several stocks have mustered monster returns this year with some companies with market caps of more than $200 million more than doubling. Among the companies that have seen their stocks more than doubled this year are social media company Snap (NYSE: SNAP) and burger chain Shake Shack (NYSE: SHAK).

Snap Overcame a Rough 2018

Snap is the biggest social medial winner this year following last year’s disappointments. The parent of chatting app Snapchat’s 2018 was stained by the failure of its wearable tech. There was also a poor reception of its app update and weakening platform growth. Snap stock plummeted after it failed to launch a comeback.

In an unlikely performance, the company saw its revenue soar 48%. This was a rare occurrence for a company that appeared to be peaking in 2018. Currently, the company has over 203 million daily active users using its app. Its ability for monetization seems to be accelerating. The company is capitalizing on its target population which is usually young people.

Shake Shack Benefitting from Third Party Delivery Apps

Shake Shack is the only restaurant stock that has more than doubled this year. This is even after most investors thought that its valuation was high at the beginning of 2019. The chain’s revenue jumped 31% in Q2 as sharp expansion, as well as a 3.6% upturn in comps, continues to fuel its top-line rally. This was exciting news on the bottom line as the company missed Wall Street estimates as it has been in the last four quarters.

The company has also improved its guidance. It has also benefitted from third-party apps offering restaurant operators an alternative of beefing up takeout orders. Shake Shack stock is still trading at 6 times its forward sales. This may be a steep valuation for the stock more so considering it is a restaurant industry stock. The company is, however, improving its fundamentals which are instrumental in overcoming valuation concerns.

Stocks To Buy Or Sell: Beyond Meat (BYND)

Jon Phillip

beyond meat stock

In recent weeks Beyond Meat Inc. (NASDAQ:BYND) has been dealing with growing pessimism from analysts with an underperforming rating. The latest to join the list is Mickheil Omanadze of Exane BNP Paribas who began coverage on Beyond Meat with an underwhelming rating and price target of $70.

On Monday when the analyst initiated the coverage Beyond Meat shares shed 6%. Freedom Finance’s Erlan Abdikarimov who has been bearish about Beyond Meat stock has the second-lowest target price of $87.90.  

Growing competition hurting Beyond Meat

The main reason behind this depressing price target is growing competition in the industry. Analysts indicate that although the plant-based meats industry will grow fast, the low entry barriers are negligible. This is challenging when trying to justify the stock.

Also, it seems like Beyond Meat stock could be overvalued based on its peers with value at around $9 billion which is 37 times more than Beyond Meat’s full-year revenue guidance.  The valuation is high for a processed food company whose product could be a fad.

However, even if plant-based meat wasn’t a fad, growing competition in the industry is still a big challenge. There a proliferation of fake meat products in retails stores and grocery shelves which could hurt sales of Beyond Meat. Traditional food companies such as Kellogg (NYSE: K), Hormel Foods (NYSE: HRL), and Tyson Foods (NYSE: TSN) are also developing alternative meat to compete with Beyond Meat. Outside the food industry Kroger Co (NYSE: KR) already has its fake meat alternative.

Could Beyond Meat Have Its Sites Set On McDonald’s?

Omanadze raised his skepticism regarding the potential of Beyond Meat in the food industry. Major drivers of the company have been restaurant and food partnerships. Analysts have predicted that the stock could surge if the company secures a partnership with McDonald’s. Omanadze believes that in future branded burgers will not have a significant presence in the foodservice sector.

Another analyst Brian Holland of D.A. Davidson has given the stock an underperforming rating but with a higher target price of £130.
