Why Defense Stocks Are Outperforming in 2019?

One industry in the United States that has almost always been independent of normal market forces is the defense sector. The U. S. is the biggest defense spender in the world. The government has continued to sanction hundreds of billions of dollars in defense spending over the years. This has been irrespective of the economic situation.

Even though the air strikes in Iran were eventually aborted, investors in the country are still bullish on defense stocks. The devil is obviously in the details. It can be seen from the 30% surge in the SPDR Aerospace & Defense Exchange Traded Fund (XAR) in 2019 so far. During the same period, the Utilities Select Sector SDPR Fund (XLU) has grown at half that rate.

Major Defense Stocks To Watch

In addition to that, the exchange-traded funds in the defense and aerospace sector have left utility ETFs in the dust. After the selloff at the end of 2018, defense stocks are now making a big comeback. The biggest gainers in the defense sector during this upsurge include:

  • Liberty Defense (SCAN.V)
  • Patriot One (PAT.TO)
  • Northrop Grumman (NOC)
  • Lockheed Martin (LMT)
  • Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Inc (KTOS)
  • Axon Enterprise (AAXN)

Defense Stocks Rise As Spending Jumps

In addition to the steady US spending on defense, it’s important to note a few things. For one, the sector has received a major boost in the form of a much bigger budget for defense spending. Towards the end of May, the National Defense Authorization Act for 2020 was voted to advance by the Senate Armed Services Committee. This is a significant development.

The act specifies $750 billion in defense spending. If it is turned into law, it could be a big benefit to the sector. This has resulted in the surge in the ETFs, despite the fact that one of the biggest constituents of such funds, Boeing (BA) has been in turmoil. This was due to the troubles with one of its highest earning commercial planes.

Over the past five years, the biggest defense contractors have grown steadily and generated returns of an average of 17% during the period. During the same period, the Dow Jones Industrial Average generated returns of 13%. It’s a sector that’s likely to continue growing irrespective of external factors. Because of this, it could be an important sector to watch in 2019.

DIS stocks to buy Disney +

There is no doubt that 2019 and the years beyond are going to be definite by the ‘streaming wars’ between some of the biggest companies in the world. The imminent entry of a behemoth like Disney (DIS) has raised the stakes even higher and on Thursday the entertainment company made another significant announcement.

During the company’s conference call for the fourth-quarter earnings, the Chief Executive Officer of Disney Bob Iger stated that the streaming serving Disney+ is going to be available on Amazon Fire TV.

Major Development For Content Providers

This is a major development, considering the fact that Disney had earlier said that the service might not be available on products owned by Amazon due to advertising disagreements.

However, that is not all. Iger went on to state that the service will also be made available on Smart TV manufactures by LG and Samsung. During the conference call, the Disney CEO said, “We’re pleased to announce partnerships with Amazon Fire [TV], LG, and Samsung devices.”

It is a major development for a streaming service that is trying to capture market share quickly from Netflix. Availability on Amazon Fire makes it accessible to a far bigger pool of potential customers. That is why this particular announcement is so important.

Where Does This Leave Netflix?

There are certain added benefits of the availability of Amazon Fire TV. The Disney+ app has the ability to sync with the built-in search engine on Amazon. Therefore, users will be able to request particular content by stating it to the personal assistant Alexa.

It goes without saying that the development has come as a big boost for Disney+. It’s ahead of the much-anticipated launch on November 12. The price of the service sits cheaper than Netflix’s cheapest package. It’s also going to be a highly cut-throat battle between the two companies. That said, other services are also coming soo. The ‘streaming wars’ are going to be the theme of 2020.

Biotech Stocks To Watch This Week

With Biotech Continuing Higher, Are These Buys Or Sells This Week?

Biotech penny stocks have proven to be one of the best sectors for investments. That’s as far as the stock market is concerned. If experts are to be believed then it may continue to be among the best options in the years to come. That being said, it does not mean that investing in biotech stocks is an easy ride.

An investor needs to conduct a lot of research and also watch the market closely. Similar to other high-risk industries, volatility is a big factor. At any given point in time, a bad report could send stocks plummeting. Similarly, one good DA report can trigger a monster move. Here is a quick look at a few biotech penny stocks which made moves recently. Will they be better stocks to buy or avoid this month?

GT Biopharma Inc. (GTBP)

This company’s stock made new 3 month highs on October 22. GT Biopharma (GTBP) announced that its solid tumor targeting TriKE killed a non-small cell lung cancer tumor cell. This is a major development news for the company’s TriKE platform because the market potential for non-small lung cancer is big.

biotech stock to watch 2019

Non-small lung cancer accounts for 84% of all lung cancer diagnoses. Shareholders clearly felt this way, which may have been why GT Biopharma’s stock shot up by more than 25%.

There could be another potential reason why stockholders are reacting this way to the recent news. Earlier in October, the company announced that the design of HIV-TriKE was able to successfully target the HIV-Env protein.

This would allow the company’s TriKE technology to eliminate replicating HIV infected cells. Because of the success of TriKE with lung cancer cells, investors might feel that the company will be able to successfully destroy HIV cells.

WHAT CURING CANCER & HIV COULD MEAN FOR THIS COMPANY, ITS INVESTORS & THE WORLD!

Pieris Pharmaceuticals (PIRS)

The first stock to consider in the biotech sector with regards to the latest movements is that of Pieris Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:PIRS). Back on November 5, the company announced that dose escalation monotherapy data with regards to one of its products is going to be presented at the Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) Annual Meeting that is going to be held at National Harbor, Maryland.

The medicine in question is PRS-343, which is meant for treating HER2-positive solid tumors. It goes without saying that it is a positive development and the Pieris stock has reacted positively to the news as well. Since the news broke, the stock has gained as much as 10%.

Foamix Pharmaceuticals (FOMX)

The other biotech stock that has been on a tear for much of the week is the Foamix Pharmaceuticals Ltd (NASDAQ:FOMX) stock. Back on October 18, the company announced that one of its products known as AMZEEQ has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. The medicine in question is a topical foam and is meant for treating inflammatory lesions in both adults as well as pediatric patients, who are older than 9. That was the initial trigger for the rise in the stock price.

Last week, the company also published a peer review of the long term open-label safety of AMZEEQ and that proved to be the trigger for the rally. During the course of the week so far, the Foamix stock has soared by as much as 60%. This is a stock that should definitely be tracked by investors.
