OUR PICK – TEVA Pharma (TEVA, NYSE)
When fundamentals and technical converge. Teva Pharma is world’s largest generic drug manufacturer that lost favor from Wall Street as the company faces over 2,000 lawsuits from states, municipalities and counties over its role in exacerbating the opioid crisis in the US. The stock lost nearly 80% it’s value, after a drop from over $72 in July 2015 to around $10 in March last year. Good news, it wasn’t affected as much by the pandemic as the stock is already at 1997’s valuation. At 3.8 times forward PE, 0.7 times revenue, and 0.05 times adjusted free cash flow; S&P Global Market Intelligence sees this stock has 34% upside before it reached it’s fair value.
Technically the stock is currently at channel support and and we saw heavy settlement at $10.61 today (23/2) with rising bid. Nevertheless, we could not rule out further dip to $10.00 to $9.50 area where more buying interest were seen. Current quarter saw a net 9.2 million institutional shares purchased while major shareholders added 3.9 million more shares.
A buy stop above $11.00 with $10.30 stop would be safer in our opinion in case the stock dropped further, where better risk reward awaits. Aggressive trader may execute at market but be ready to ride the possible dip.
