Biopharma stocks: 3 Undervalued Small-caps

By Jorge Aura

All investors know the risks of biotechnology companies. The strong volatility of these companies makes their prices fluctuate in excess. This sector has the peculiarity that offers a high risk but with a possible high gain. Identify pharmaceutical companies that have bottomed out or that are undervalued can be a good investment strategy for medium-term and short-term. In the following table will be able to see the readers, 3 companies which have greatly reduced their quoted prices since on January 6, 2017.

CompanyJanuary 6, 2017  July 7, 2017        
Galena Biopharma Inc $2.07  $0.55
Repros Therapeutics Inc$1.36  $0.50
Navidea Biopharmaceuticals Inc$0.625  $0.49

As you have seen in the upper table these companies have been hit hard during July, 2017. To determine if these companies are undervalued I have made a fundamental analysis of each company.

Galena Biopharma Inc (NASDAQ: GALE) is a biopharmaceutical company. The Company focuses on developing and commercializing targeted oncology therapeutics that address unmet medical needs. The Company's development portfolio ranges from mid- to late-stage clinical assets.

Galena lead product candidate is GALE-401. This product contains the active ingredient anagrelide, an FDA-approved product, for the treatment of patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms ("MPNs") to lower abnormally elevated platelet levels. The currently available immediate release ("IR") version of anagrelide causes adverse events that are believed to be dose and plasma concentration dependent, and may limit the use of the IR version of the drug. Therefore, reducing the maximum concentration ("Cmax") and increasing the half-life of the drug is hypothesized to reduce the side effects, while preserving the efficacy, potentially allowing a broader use of the drug.

This stock plunged from its high of $4.75 to a recent low of $0.16. If you are bullish on this stock, I would look to be a buyer on the next high-volume move above some near-term overhead resistance at $0.58 a share. Look for volume that's tracking in close to or above its three-month average action of 599,062 shares. Keep in mind that the company has approved the possibility of performing a reverse split recently.
