    President Trump’s big drug price speech boosts pharma stocks

    After weeks of build-up, drug industry watchers began to have real concerns about President Donald Trump’s big drug price speech on Friday. Many of the changes that were mentioned on Friday had been raised before by his administration, including drug price negotiation for certain government programs. Other proposals seemed unlikely to significantly bring down drug prices in the near-term, which Trump described as a goal of the plan.

    Trending: Investors Apathetic to Barclays' $1.2 Billion ETN Shutoff

    This week, investors were preoccupied with Russia, as the country’s equities fell dramatically after the relations with countries in the West, including the U.S., deteriorated. First in the list, however, is Barclays Capital, as the asset management arm of the British bank said it would shut down a host of exchange-traded notes (ETNs). Russia is second in the list followed by crude oil, which has been on a tear lately thanks to dropping stockpiles in the U.S. Leveraged ETFs and biotechnology stocks close the list.

    Could Big Biotech Earnings Be a Bust?

    Singh's more conservative on Gilead Sciences (GILD), writing that its HIV drug Biktarvy is seeing a good launch, but not as strong Genvoya, and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN), where he sees a strong second half in terms of regulatory approvals as balanced by "burgeoning operating expenses and negative sentiment." He has Perform ratings on both stocks. Moving down the line, he's more bullish on mid- and small-cap biotechs, which are not only benefitting from M&A in the sector, but should also "continue to positively diverge from large-cap biotech" in first-quarter earnings results as well.

    Tech, Biotech Rife With Buys, M&A, Disruptive Trends

    Tom Vandeventer, portfolio manager of the Tocqueville Opportunity Fund (TOPPX), which is up nearly 10% so far this year, thinks that trend will continue. Tech and biotech are two major themes running through the fund’s portfolio, which Vandeventer told Barron’s is indicative of the fact that “there are a lot of disruptive technologies that are coming to fruition” in both sectors. The fund focuses more on small- and mid-cap stocks, meaning that M&A is a theme throughout his holdings, in both tech and biotech, bolstered by industry trends (the move to the cloud, the rise of gene-editing therapies, respectively), as well the fact that larger players are flush with cash—thanks to lower corporate taxes and repatriated capital—to facilitate acquisitions.

    Better Days Ahead for Big Biotechs

    The first quarter is traditionally not a strong one for biotech earnings for a host of reasons—including fewer shipping days, inventory reductions after year-end price increases, weather disruptions, and annual copay resets in many health insurance plans. The SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (XBI) is up 2.8% to $91.38 today, and the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) is climbing 2.2% to $107.55.

    Bigger Biotechs Bound for Earnings Bounty

    Just as Barron's predicted, this year has seen smaller biotech stocks outperform their larger peers, with the SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (XBI) up 15% year-to-date, while the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) has fallen 1.2%.  Now, as we gear up for first-quarter earnings in the sector, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey sees a number of potentially better-than-expected results ahead. The team, led by analyst Yatin Suneja, writes that investors appear "poised to reward companies with good financial performance." He believes that positive pricing trends, along with tailwinds from foreign exchange and moderate expectations on the Street can drive outperformance, even if seasonality is a headwind. Suneja thinks that among big biotechs, Alexion Pharmaceuticals (ALXN), BioMarin Pharmaceuticals (BMRN), Celgene (CELG), Exelixis (EXEL), Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN), and Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT) have the best chance of reporting better-than-expected sales in the quarter, while he sees a more in-line quarters for Biogen (BIIB) and Incyte (INCY).

    Biotech's Bounce Might Have Begun…Finally

    Biotechnology stocks and the exchange-traded funds that hold them have tried to rally in recent months, only to disappoint investors over and over again. "While nearly every index, ETF and stock finished noticeably below their respective highs, some still notched impressive net moves on Monday," wrote Instinet technical analyst Frank Cappelleri. "The [iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF] was the leader among the industry ETFs we track, missing a 2% gain." Gene therapy company AveXis (AVXS) helped lead the way Monday, popping more than 80% to above $200 on news that drug juggernaut Novartis (NVS) planned to acquire it for $8.7 billion in cash or $218 per share.
