Winning Stock Forecast: ENDP Returns up to 30.67% in 1 Month with global expansion and counter lawsuits

“One of the biggest challenges to medicine is the incorporation of information technology in our practices.”

Endo International plc, incorporated on October 31, 2013, is a generics and specialty branded pharmaceutical company. The company has three segments: U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals, U.S. Branded Pharmaceuticals and International Pharmaceuticals. It has its own brand names and its non-branded U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals portfolio consists of products, such as tablets, capsules, powders, injectables, liquids, nasal sprays, ophthalmics and patches. The International Pharmaceuticals segment includes various specialty pharmaceutical products for the Canadian, Latin American and world markets.

On June 26, I Know First gave a bullish one month forecast for ENDP. Over that one month period, the stock returned up to 30.67%. Navigating the drug industry, there are some key reasons why Endo stocks grew faster than its competitors:

Blaming the Opioid Crisis on Illegal Distributors – Effectively

Many analysts have been bearish on drug companies because of the decline in opioid sales. Accidental deaths and drug overdoses caused by opioids have spiked over the years and federal agencies are bringing major litigations to these drug companies. In the first half of 2018, Endo stock prices dipped to a low of $5.43 after being issued grand jury subpoenas. Apart from Endo, drug companies Mallinckrodt (MNK) and Insys (INSY) have seen their revenue and earnings fall due to government clamp on opioid prescriptions.

However, on July 20th, Endo and Mallinckrodt launched a counterattack against drug dealers, illegal websites, “dark web” retailers and corrupted healthcare providers. While some lawyers believe that drug companies would not be absolved from liability for the conduct of third parties, public confidence in Endo soared and reflected in the stock prices. The stock spiked 9.09% from July 20th to July 26th.

The counterattack seeks to shift any liabilities from Endo to individuals and companies who unlawfully sold prescription opioids, and hold them financially responsible for damages assessed against Endo. Charged individuals and entities include online retailer RxCash.Biz, which sells misbranded opioids, an Italian man indicted for of operating so-called pill mills, and a Tennessee resident who’s serving 10 years for possessing fentanyl with an intent to distribute. Furthermore, the US Food and Drug Administration is cracking down on websites like “AnonShop,” “Remedy Mart,” “TramadolHub” and “One Stop Pharma” that are illegally selling opioids.

Endo Begins Shipping USP in the US

Another spike came after July 2, when one of ENDO’s operating companies, Par Pharmaceutical, Inc. (Par), began shipping an authorized generic version of Takeda Pharmaceutical’s Colcrys® (colchicine, USP) 0.6 mg tablets. This tablet is indicated for prophylaxis and treatment of gout flares in adults and familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) in adults and children 4 years or older.

Endo is the Exclusive Distributor for Pitolisant in Canada

Endo also announced on July 25th that its subsidiary, Endo Ventures Limited has entered into definitive agreements with Bioprojet SCR to register, commercialize, and distribute pitolisant on an exclusive basis in Canada. Endo’s operating company, Paladin Labs Inc., will be commercializing pitolisant in Canada while Bioprojet will be responsible for supplying the drug to Paladin. The new revenue line continues to bring more revenue to Endo.

Winning HRTX Stock Forecast: Heron Therapeutics Gained 46.99% 3 Months After Strong Bullish Signal

“HTX-011 is the only long-acting local anesthetic to demonstrate significantly reduced postoperative pain and opioid use through 72 hours compared to bupivacaine solution, the standard-of-care local anesthetic for postoperative pain management, in Phase 3 studies. We look forward to working towards the submission of an NDA to the FDA for HTX-011 in the second half of 2018.”

– Barry D. Quart, Pharm.D., CEO of Heron Therapeutics.

(Source: smarteranalyst.com)

Just in three months from March 25th, 2018, Heron Therapeutics Inc (NYSE: HRTX) has gained 46.99%. The main reason for such an incredible movement is the news released on June 25th that HTX-011 has received the Breakthrough Therapy designation from the FDA. HTX-011 is an investigational, and long-acting formulation for Postoperative Pain Management, developed by HRTX.

The formulation achieved the designation thanks to the Phase 2 and some of Phase 3 studies. The Breakthrough Therapy designation allows Heron Therapeutics to expedite the development of the drugs. The success of HTX-011 will significantly reduce the postoperative pain intensity as well as the addiction of opioids. Opioids are a class of drugs that are used as medicines to relieve pain and relax the body. According to Heron Therapeutics, there are more than 40 million patients who undergoing surgical procedures are prescribed to this class of drugs. Out of 40 million, 2.6 become persistent users, while 440,000 become addicted. Hence, if success, HTX-011 will become a huge solution for postoperative pain management.
