The fate of healthcare stocks will depend on our understanding that we need to prioritize our health. No matter how hard we try to escape it, we cannot outrun the naked truth that our health is, above all, the most important aspect of life to make sure is being well-managed. One’s physiological wellbeing is what allows, or restricts, an individual from doing what they love, or taking care of what needs to get done. 

Running in tandem with the incredible technology coming out over the past few years has been an onslaught of new diseases and ailments, presenting mankind’s medical experts and professionals with new obstacles for creating treatment options. 

Our Health Is Our Future 

However, all hope is not lost, for there are companies in the healthcare industry working to develop new approaches to treating humanity’s most complicated contagions. In a recent survey conducted by Forbes, healthcare companies were asked which key technologies will have the most profound impact on the industry in 2019. 

Among the answers provided by companies working in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical devices, wearables, and remote patient monitoring, all respondents agreed on the notion that technological advancements will be the key to battling newly discovered infectious diseases. 

Multi-Trillion Dollar Industry Providing Massive Opportunity in 2019 & Beyond

There are undoubtedly multiple factors that come into play when examining the fate of the healthcare sector. One of the  most important of those is the growing lackadaisical nature of patients afflicted by a myriad of diseases. Ironic as it is, people suffering and in need of medical care would prefer to have medical professionals come to them, be that in a literal sense or via other means. Clearly taking notice from other industries using drones and self-driving cars to ease the lives of consumers, healthcare patients want a similar experience. 

While many companies in the healthcare industry have yet to understand how to approach these demands, there are a few companies who’ve not only managed to get their bearings on the matter, but rise to the occasion and spark investor interest. 

These Companies Are Leading The Charge To Advance Healthcare 

Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) / (6PH.F) is a Canadian publicly traded company strategically pointed tot are advantage of business opportunities in the global healthcare industry.

Saudi’s Minister Has No Plans To Boost Oil Production After Iran Oil Waivers End

On Wednesday, Saudi Arabia’s Energy minister Khalid al-Falih said that there was no need to immediately increase oil output. This followed the ending of waivers granted by the US to Iranian crude oil buyers. He added that Saudi Arabia will only respond to increase oil output if there is an increase in demand.

The Decision Not To Increase Output Based On Market Fundamentals

The minister said that his decision was based on oil market fundamentals rather than prices and that they still remain focused on stabilizing the global oil market.  Speaking in Riyadh, Falih said that despite the rising of inventories as a result of sanctions on Iran and the situation in Venezuela it was not necessary to have an immediate response to increase oil output.

Last year the US granted Iranian oil buyers exemptions from sanctions but it has tightened the line by deciding not to renew them.  Saudi Arabia intends to remain within its OPEC production limit as well as be intent to its customers. More so those under waivers and those that have seen their waivers withdrawn. 

The minister said that they are not going to pre-empt the same and increase their output. Oil production number for May are set. It had little variations from previous months. Furthermore, crude oil allocations for June will be decided next month.

Oil Prices Have Been Increasing Since November

Since November, Oil prices have increased. This follows the announcement by the US that all waivers on imports of Iranian oil will not be renewed to put pressure on buyers to stop buying oil, from Iran. This ends up tightening global oil supply. 

On Wednesday, Brent Crude futures dropped to trade at $74.18 per barrel. This followed a statement from the International Energy Agency. This indicates that markets are adequately supplied and global production is stable.

Reviving The Lost Interest In The Gold Mines: McEwen

gold mining stocks to buy

From the viewpoint of a mining executive, a loss in interest in gold mines is being assessed. After dabbling in other activities in the mining sector, firms and companies must switch back to their core activity of finding new gold mines. What could this mean for mining stocks?

Rob McEwen, CEO and Chairman of McEwen Mining (MUX) says, the first few months of the year has brought and encouraged the attention and interest of the investors in the mining of precious metals sector. But, now it is extremely important to bring up some new discoveries and execute some exploration plans in order to give consistency to the investors’ attention.

New Opportunity For Mining Stocks?

He remarks that a new zeal is required to bring enthusiasm to the investors. The current market is in need of some extraordinary news. He even said that there is no lack of money in this sector and that investors just need to work upon it and create shareholder values.

Chairman McEwen commented as the prices of the gold is consistently falling since3-4 months causing damage to the mining sector. Companies like June Gold Futures and VanEck Vectors Gold Minors ETF last traded at $1,273.50/ounce, and $20.92/share respectively and the former went down 0.32% while the latter faced 0.29% fall on the day.

According to McEwen, a few companies are working in this direction to revive the interest in these mines. These companies are Kirkland Lake Gold (its record production) & Great Bear Resources (its active program of exploration) are mentioned by him in this regard.

McEwen, as per his plans, is heading for extensive drilling plans in North America. He introduced that his company is going to invest $17 million at Black Fox Property’s (North Ontario) exploration plans and $5 million at Gold Bar Mine (Nevada).

McEwen believes that such resources are full of potential and can create peerless mines in the world.

McEwen planned for the aforementioned two plans as the world saw a degradation in the production at Gold Bar due to massive snowfall at Nevada. And also, the production at Black Fox was affected as the contactor-run crushing plant was shut down for 6 weeks in February.

Growth Is The Focus

But McEwen is definite to complete its target no matter what. He said the company will fulfill its 2019 target of gold production of 205,000 ounces. In the first 3 months of 2019, he claimed the gold production of 36,166 ounces. This is 18% more than the gold production in the first 3 months of 2018.

McEwen gave a positive statement saying that price and the interest of investor will be gained back soon once the gold mines receive adequate attention. He says that the mining sector is facing a lacuna of sentiments of investors.

He even said that the importance of gold mines could be seen as unlike investors, Central Bank is showing stability in hiking the bank’s gold reserve and continuing to see it as an international currency. So, it is still important for those investors who are seeking protection for their investments.
