Biotech Names To Know In November 2019
Biotech Stocks Have rallied since The End Of September; What’s Next?
Over the years, the biotech sector has become one of the fastest-growing sectors in the stock market and naturally, investors are keen to get hold of stocks that could follow a similar growth trajectory. However, just because a sector is growing does not mean that an investor can bet on any stock and hope to make decent returns.
In order to choose the right stock, he needs to do a lot of personal research and watch the market closely. Here is a look at three biotech stocks that investors should track closely owing to recent developments.
Sernova Corp’s (TSX:SVA) (OTC:SEOVF)
Sernova’s therapeutic approach to regenerative medicine focuses on providing direct cell therapies where the cells, transplanted within an organ-like vascularized implantable device, generates proteins, hormones or factors released into the bloodstream for treatment of diseases requiring replacement of these molecules in the body.
The company’s Cell Pouch is a novel, proprietary, scalable, implantable macro-encapsulation device designed for the long- term survival and function of therapeutic cells. At the end of October Sernova Corp. (SVA) (SEOVF) detected enduring levels of C-peptide in the bloodstream of a fasting patient in its continuing phase I/II Cell Pouch United States clinical study of type-1 diabetes. This C-peptide is a biomarker of transplanted beta-cell insulin production,
Why is this important? According to Dr. Piotr Witkowski, Director of Pancreatic, and Islet Transplant Program at the University of Chicago, “Along with the preliminary safety and early indicators of efficacy, I am excited that we are observing C-peptide levels in the patient’s bloodstream after recent transplant, not only following stimulation with a meal but also when the patient is fasting. These findings represent progress in clinical outcomes and evidence of enduring islet survival and function within Sernova’s Cell Pouch.”
The first one to put in the watch list is that of Genprex Inc (NASDAQ:GNPX). On Tuesday, the company revealed preclinical data from its study of its product TUSC2 immunogene therapy. The product in question is meant for raising the effectiveness of chemotherapy and anti-PD1 in people suffering from metastatic lung cancers.
The data proved to be positive and that has naturally resulted in a rally in the stock. It is a significant development for Genprex and could potentially help the company in cornering an important portion of the gene therapy market. Hence, it is hardly a surprise that the stock has rallied by as much as 60% after hitting a session’s high of $1.09.
Can Fite Biopharma (CANF)
The other biotech stock that has made a strong move is the Can Fite Biopharma (NYSE:CANF) stock. The biotech company announced this morning that one of its products, which is meant for the treatment of liver diseases and cancer, has been granted a patent as a sexual dysfunction medicine.
The patents have been granted by the relevant authorities in Canada, Israel, and South Korea. In addition to that, the company has also been awarded patents in Japan, China, United States, Australia, and Hong Kong. It is a highly important development for Can-Fite and it was no surprise when the stock rallied this morning. It has rallied by 3% on Tuesday on the back of the news.

Is The Entertainment Streaming Market Ready For Its Next Move?
New Streaming Options Have Opened A Big Door For Content Providers
As many experts have pointed out, the end of 2019 is going to see the commencement of the ‘streaming wars’ as more and more companies enter the OTT market to challenge the supremacy of Netflix Inc (NASDAQ:NFLX). The launch of the streaming service Disney Plus last week formally launched the streaming wars.
Do Content Providers Stand To Benefit?
According to an article published on Reuters the global video streaming market was valued at $26.27 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $83.41 billion by 2022 growing at a CAGR of 17.9% from 2015 to 2022. Apple, Disney, Netflix, Amazon, NBC, Hulu & more are all competing within the global video streaming market and they all need the same thing… new & original content. Massive demand may create a huge opportunity for companies like Fearless Films (FERL).
Fearless Films is an independent full-service production company. This is the exact type of company that can benefit from what could become one of the biggest cash grabs in entertainment history and here’s why. You’ve likely heard of the big production houses: Warner Bros, DreamWorks, Red Crown Productions and others who benefited from big deals with streaming companies.
It isn’t just Netflix who’s flexing billions in content budgets, Apple, Amazon, Disney, NBC, Roku – the list goes on. These are huge entertainment distributors who are now fighting for one thing… Where you spend your waking hours streaming entertainment.
Key Analysis On Streaming Service Providers
Considering the fact that the new service has already garnered 10 million users, it’s fair to say that it is here to say. Considering the fact that Apple has already launched its own service and many other services are going to be launched in the next few months, experts are now wondering whether the streaming space has become too crowded.
The success of Game of Thrones has ushered in an era of unprecedented spending for quality content. The show generated total profit to the tune of $2.2 billion for HBO, which is owned by AT&T. Hence, video streaming companies have also decided to spend jaw-dropping sums on original content. Apple has earmarked $6 billion for original content, while Disney is expected to match that.
Both companies are trying to create that one show that could turn into a cash cow. On the other hand, Apple is going to price is monthly subscription at $4.99 and Disney is going to charge $6.99 for the same. In such a situation, one can expect Netflix to change tack since its cheapest subscription is worth $12.99.
So, the crowding is quite apparent as mega corporations enter the streaming space. However, the question remains whether the business is going to grow and new subscribers are going to flock in. Studies suggest that it will grow and up until 2024, the streaming market should grow by 18.8% each year. In 2024, the market is going to be worth $687 billion. Hence, it is quite clear that despite the intense competition that is going to come to the streaming space, there is still room for companies to grow and become profitable.
