Top 10 Medical Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Vertex Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: VRTX) shares saw a handy gain on Thursday after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave the nod to Vertexs cystic fibrosis (CF) treatment. Essentially, the FDA approved Kalydeco (ivacaftor) to include use in children diagnosed with CF ages 12 to 24 months who have at least one mutation in their cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene.

This FDA approval is based on data from the ongoing Phase 3 study (ARRIVAL) of 25 children with CF aged 12 to 24 months who have one of 10 mutations in the CFTR gene. The study demonstrated a safety profile consistent with that observed in previous Phase 3 studies of older children and adults; most adverse events were mild or moderate in severity, and no patient discontinued due to adverse events.

Kalydeco already was approvedin the United States for the treatment of CF in patients ages 2 and older who have one of 38 ivacaftor-responsive mutations in the CFTR gene.

    However, oil prices have declined significantly since the company previewed its 2019 plans. That plunge caused several rivals to cut their spending in 2019. WPX Energy (NYSE:WPX), for example, initially expected to invest between $1.45 billion and $1.65 billion in 2019, which was an increase from its $1.3 billion to $1.4 billion range for 2018. WPX Energy has since slashed its budget range down to $1.1 billion-$1.275 billion in response to the decline in oil prices, which have gone from above $70 a barrel in early October to the low $50s in recent weeks.

    Meanwhile, WPX Energy (NYSE:WPX) is cutting its 2019 capital budget. The company initially expected to spend between $1.45 billion and $1.65 billion this year, which would have been enough money to grow its U.S. oil volumes 25% to 30% from last year’s level. The recent crash in crude prices, however, forced the company to reduce the range to between $1.1 billion and $1.275 billion, which is still enough to increase its output 20% from 2018’s average. Overall, the company noted that it’s forecasting only a 6% impact on its original production guidance despite a 23% spending reduction.

Renting in Manhattan is notoriously expensive. But lately it’s becoming just a little bit more affordable … a little.

Prices have been on a general decline this year as more apartments become available, and landlords continue to make concessions.

Rental prices declined for the first four months of the year, according to market reports by real estate appraisal firm Miller Samuel for Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

In March, rental prices dropped 3% from a year earlier to $3,400.

Luxury apartments have seen the biggest price drops.

Rentals with three bedrooms or more have seen a nearly 6% annual drop in May, while rents on two-bedroom units are down 4.6%, the latest report found.

Last month, overall prices crept up 0.6%, partly because the summer ushers in a flood of new renters and there was a jump in bigger apartments hitting the market.

    Driving that view is the success its peers have had in the state. Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), for example, grew its STACK production 11% during the fourth quarter. While Devon is prioritizing free cash flow generation from the region over volume growth this year, that will allow it to retain the optionality to reaccelerate in the future. EOG, likewise, sees upside in Oklahoma’s shale plays as it believes it’s sitting on more than 200 million BOE of net resource potential in the region that it can develop in the coming years. When market conditions improve, investors will likely see oil companies restart their Oklahoma growth engines.

    How To Invest
    When spending dried up, this group was hit hard. Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) went from a profit of $3.5 billion in 2014 to a painful loss of $5.8 billion in 2016. But the pendulum is swinging. As any good salesman will tell you, it’s much easier to close deals when your customers have more cash in their pocket. And as we just discussed,big oil producers have $425 billion locked, loaded and ready to fire.
