In the stock market, investors have been cautious following the massive volatility we’ve seen this quarter. This can make it very difficult to navigate the waters of the stock market. But like we said just a few weeks ago, you need to be able to connect the right dots to find real opportunity.
This month StockPrice has brought a new company to everyone’s attention: Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI). We’ve put together a full report together that highlights how Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) could have the same “early potential” as some of the biggest breakouts the small-cap space has seen this year.
There’s a VERY GOOD REASON to pay attention right now:
While everyone is still trying to figure out the “latest trend” in the stock market, big funds are quietly doing something that isn’t getting mass media coverage right now.
Funds Are Redirecting Cash Into Healthcare Stocks
What are they doing? Well, it just so happens that this month Bank of America surveyed 225 fund managers with $641 billion in assets under management, who said the most “crowded trade” is in mainstream tech stocks. Investors are the least optimistic on mainstream tech stocks since the depths of the financial crisis and are instead directing attention to another corner of the market: healthcare.
The survey found that global investors rate health stocks their No. 1 overweight. And in November, they have been selling tech stocks to pile into stock in this sector. As investors make a push to grab hold of the expanding healthcare opportunity, Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) could be perfect timing this new trend that the majority of funds, like the ones surveyed, are paying close attention to right now.

Latest News Could Open HUGE Doors ForPremier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI)
If you haven’t been paying close attention to our updates, consider this your opportunity to get caught up because the company has been strongly focused on growth. Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) announced two key updates that could bring that “very near term potential” directly into the spotlight.
First, Premier announced that as a part of its expansion plans it will enter the Pharmacy market via acquisition and/or launching a new Canada based pharmacy in H1-2019. Following this, Premier announced that it will enter the Cannabis clinic space by a series of acquisitions, partnerships and/or launching a new Canada-based chain in the first half of 2019.
Before we get too far into it…we’re less than two months away from 2019 and Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) is flat out saying that they will be looking to engage with 2 multibillion-dollar industries within the first half of 2019.
We talk about connecting the dots. Showing you how timing could play a role is just one piece of the pie. Let’s also consider what the marketplace in Canada could offer specifically to Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI).
1. The Canadian retail pharmacy market is estimated to be $44 billion (Source: IBISWorld). It is expected the industry sector will continue to allow for favorable economics for pharmacy operators as baby boomer’s demand increases for prescriptions and operators to expand the scope of practice to include preventative services.
2. The Canadian medical cannabis clinic market is estimated to be worth approximately $2.35 billion by 2025.
If these two facts weren’t enough, there is also a MAJOR Cross Over in Canada that connects medical cannabis & retail pharmacies. For some reason, news outlets aren’t paying attention to it right now either.
The crossover: Canadian pharmacies are fully behind medical marijuana too! Shoppers, Lovell Drugs and PharmaChoice have all signed supply deals with leading cannabis producers in Canada. Their pending entry into the medical cannabis market comes as the number of registered MMJ patients is soaring.
Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) could have an ideal business model in progress that would vertically integrate cannabis as another growth opportunity; it could be only months away as the company states the plan being for the first half of 2019.
This Could Be Just The Beginning
Why say this? Statistics from Premier Health’s subsidiary, HealthVue, show that roughly 15% of Canadians aged 12 and older don’t have a primary care physician. On top of this, nearly two-thirds of seniors are also unable to get a same-or next-day appointment. This contributes to about 7 in 10 Canadians avoiding seeing a doctor when they are sick.
Though cannabis is very exciting, it represents just one part of what could become an even larger market opportunity for Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI). HealthVue has an ecosystem of over 100,000 active patients, and according to the company, they also have plans to “rapidly increase that number both domestically and internationally.” Unlike other telehealth companies, HealthVue also has four clinics in British Columbia with plans to expand to the rest of Canada via its telemedicine model.
The benefit for Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) is that it can tap into the existing payment structure that Canada offers. Unlike the US, the telemedicine visits are already covered by the provincial health insurance plans in several provinces, so there is no cost to the patient to access this service. HealthVue expects to make the first version of the app available to their patients in Q4-18.
Besides cannabis, big pharmacies and healthcare systems are beginning to see the light when it comes to telemedicine. The resulting success could open big doors for the global market and for companies like Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) to get a piece of the pie. Just look at some of the leading pharmacies aiming telemedicine:
1. Rite Aid (RAD), the third largest pharmacy in America, has begun searching for a useful telehealth technology for its customers both in store and virtually.
2. Walgreens (WBA) is connecting with more than a dozen healthcare providers, working to launch a new virtual marketplace used to join its online customers with store- and community-based services.
3. CVS has even begun to explore opportunities in telehealth with early ventures. The CVS Pharmacy app leverages back-end technology of telemedicine to offer the service to its subscribers.
The “Big Three” in the pharmacy industry are looking for the advantage and telemedicine could give them just that. The move follows the trends of a new consumer and the tendency to shift care outside of hospitals and clinics to where patients already are. Could Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) be next to get a nod for its telehealth platform?
Market Opportunity Indicates Rapid Growth
Telemedicine is also becoming a more significant part of health care treatment in rural areas, and more hospitals are embracing video consultations. Reports from firms like Polaris Market Research & Consulting found that the global telehealth market was valued at $3.1 Billion in 2017 and is anticipated to reach $16.7 Billion by 2025 growing at a CAGR of 23.5%.
After observing this kind of rapid expansion within a short period, it stands to reason that not only is healthcare in for a change but also calls for more attention to be placed on companies getting involved early on.
The opportunity to see rapid market adoption in Canada could offer companies within this industry an even greater opportunity. With the healthcare arena, especially in Canda, presenting numerous opportunities for growth Premier Health Group (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) could have a first mover advantage and the upper hand.
