BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Oct 2, 2013) - In a newly released article, Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and micro cap sectors, notes that the fourth quarter of the year is typically a good one for micro cap stocks due to seasonal and macro issues and this year should be no different. For Nuvilex, Inc. (
At present, the Russell 2000 Index is heavily weighted in the financial services, consumer discretionary, and technology industries, while health care is only the 5th greatest weight. Given that just on Monday S&P Capital downgraded the financial services sector weighting and the seasonality of consumer discretionary stocks declines in the early part of the year, we expect a major shift in industry weighting during Q4. As a result, investors should prepare for a sector rotation to the health care and specifically the biotech arena, this quarter.
Separately, one of the most opportunistic of the major oncology-focused biotechs, Celgene Corp. just made a $10M investment in Acceleron Pharma, a cancer treatment developer. This latest move is one in a recent series made by big pharma into smaller firms and Nuvilex likely remains on the list of qualifying candidates going forward.
On the micro front, Nuvilex investors may also be rewarded by upcoming milestones such as the pending closing of the diabetes technology treatment rights acquisition which was originally announced in 3Q13. This deal should immediately boost the Firm's valuation, upon closing. Plus, investors can expect to receive progress reports regarding the Firm's advanced clinical trials initiatives such as the production of the live cancer-drug-activating cells that will form part of the treatment to be used in its pancreatic cancer studies and the GMP facility in which the actual encapsulation of those cells will take place.
All in all, with seasonality, sector rotation, and key milestone news ahead, Nuvilex's stock appears to have the wind at its back, which is good news for shareholders.
