Out on Wall Street, stocks were able to pull out a major win. Despite being a more volatile week of trading, the three major U.S. stock indexes were each able to notch a more than 3% weekly-gain, with the Dow Jones exhibiting its best weekly performance since April 9. The surge came as investors applauded progress related to a COVID-19 vaccine and the reopening of the U.S. economy.
Against this backdrop, investor focus has locked in on one area of the market in particular: the healthcare sector. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the space has held up strong, broadly outperforming the rest of the market. Not to mention return-minded investors tend to flock to these names thanks to the possibility of sky-high rewards.
What’s the secret to their huge return potential? The nature of the industry itself. Many healthcare companies only rely on a few key indicators such as study results or regulatory approvals to determine if there’s a clear path forward, and thus, a single piece of good news can launch it on an upward trajectory. However, the opposite also holds true, so these tickers are notoriously risky.
Understanding the volatile nature of the industry, we used TipRanks’ database to pinpoint compelling plays within the healthcare space. The platform helped us track down three that have received overwhelmingly bullish support from analysts, enough to earn a “Strong Buy” consensus rating. The cherry on top? Each could double in the twelve months ahead.
Using its ProTide technology to turn some of the most widely prescribed chemotherapy agents, nucleoside analogs, into more effective and safer medicines, NuCana hopes to improve treatment outcomes for cancer patients. With the company gearing up for a jam-packed year of potential catalysts, several members of the Street believe that now is the time to snap up shares.
