Opko...Limited Risk Amazing Reward



January 26, 2012 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: OPK

Most spectlative pharma stocks depend on one drug to push them over the top.  Opko is quite different as an established pharma company.  With current full-time customers buying medical equipment, Opko will continue to stay afloat while the high risk parts of the company are tested.  

Phillip Frost has been a great CEO over his many years of service to America's private industry.  Not only does he have a vision for this company, he is pursuing his vision with full force.  ALS Distribuidora Limitada, FineTech Pharmaceutical Ltd, and possibly most important and profit forming acqusition with a game-changing devise.  This will be a company to keep an eye on for 2012 and 2013.  

Just make sure you are in it before Opko is a household name!

You aren't really saying much about the company.  I did a cursory look at the earnings stats and it really doesn't impress.  A negatve .12 eps for 2012 doesn't wow me.

Other pharma companies who are looking at possible game-changing products (drugs or equipment) normally put much more on the line than Opko.  If their drugs or equipment fail, their company gets destroyed.  Opko on the other hand, if they do fail at first, they will have enough funds behind them to try again.  You are correct with the earnings estimates in the future.  The reason Opko has these low estimates, is because it is a speculative equipment maker.  They spend a lot to push these game-changers out to the public.  If one of these products jumps onto the scene as Opko would like, look for these current estimates to get possitively crushed.  Once again I would like to concure with your judgement on the current negative estimates, but we will have to remember this is a speculative stock.

I don't mind rolling the dice on speculative stocks but at least explain to me what their products are that are worth speculating on.

One of the "game-changers" that I am very bullish on is Claros.  Claros is a small rapid lab-quality blood testing system.  Normally when you go to the Doc and get a blood test you wait 24-48 hours to receive results from the lab.  This product only needs a prick of blood and can test for over 30 different disorders (to name a few, HIV, Hepatitis B, Folic Acid, Vitamin D, Testosterone, Fertility, and many more).  What makes this such a amazing device?  You get results in ten minutes!  If you want to see the actual investor presentation during the J.P. Morgan Health Conference you can find it at this link:
