2.7% Down on Keryx’ Earning Report



Keryx Biopharmaceuticals has reported its earnings a month ago and the market is still waiting for its latest reports especially that their shares have been declining at 2.7% within the period since their last announcement.

Today, we are about to scrutinize the latest about Keryx and see their progress and areas which they need to focus on.

Narrower Loss in Quarter 1

Zacks Consensus has estimated 19 cents loss for Keryx but it came out a lot narrower with an actual loss of 18 cents per share during the first quarter of this year. Its revenues hit $21.8 million instead of the $21.7 million predictions of Zacks and a lot higher to the $11.8 million earnings of the previous year.

Keryx launched Auryxia for individuals with chronic kidney diseases and its high demand during the first quarter after being launched last year during the fourth quarter has really been overwhelming as it reaches $20.6 million net product sales in the US alone. This figure is 96% higher compared to $10.5 million in sales in the prior year.

In addition, Keryx also earns license revenues on Riona’s sales. Riona is Japanese’ trade name for Auryxia and it has delivered a $1.1 million earnings for this quarter although it is down 15.4% compared to last year.

As to Keryx’ expenses, research and development hit $8.4 million for this quarter which is notably higher compared to the $6.8 million expenses a year ago. Selling and general, as well as administrative expenses, is up by 11.7% as it hit $25.8 million.

Estimate Movements

Fresh estimates have been showing an upward trend.

VGM Scores

Keryx has a current Growth Score of C but its momentum is a lot more promising with a grade of A. However, the stock is at F on the value side which makes it be one of the bottom stocks when it comes to investment strategy.

In general, it has an Aggregate VGM score of D and this is one of the stocks which most people would prefer if not focused on one strategy.

It currently holds the #3 rank in Zacks which makes it suitable for holding. However, we expect to see progress from this stock in the coming years.

Whats up with the buffet buyback?




First what’s a stock buyback?

A stock buyback is simply when a public traded company buys shares back from the open market.

It is common for businesses to buy back shares for several reasons

  • Help boost the value of their shares. This works because when there is less shares available it influences the price of that asset.
  • Boost earnings before and upcoming report.
  • Cause speculation on the value of their asset

In the past year it has been very common for companies to buy back shares. this is often helpful in rewarding investors.

Buffet knows something you dont!

Berkshire Hathaway is a company owned by Warren Buffett who is know for buying stake in companies he believes will grow in value with time. This time they arent buying shares of other companies but are investing in itself with approximately $1 billion worth of stock buybacks.

You may be wondering why Berkshire Hathaway is buying back shares? Well, after a decade long bull market in the USA coupled with increasing stock prices(potentially in bubble teritory now), Buffett thinks a buyback make sense because there is little percieved value anywhere else. The strategy must be working berkshire reported profits increased 351% to $18.5 billion this past year. Buffets style of value investing is known as one of the best in the industry and making Buffett one of the richest men in the world with a worth of about $90 billion.

Euro to replace the dollar?




there is a probability

The euro is currently 1/3 of global transaction volume, and some think its potentially possible that the Euro coud be placed to surpass the dollar in importance. The euro like the dollar is a fiat currency that is used for trade between european nations and their allies when convenient. With sanctions tarifs and general economic bullying becoming the norm for america and its dollar, some nations are choosing to look for ways to escape dollar hegemony.

It’s not likely to really happen

The euro is a strong currency but it has little chance of becoming the worlds reserve currency. It is more likely that folks will choose to move away from any financial institution that can basically starve your population with financial and trade sanctions. In my opinion cryptocurrency will find it’s way into the worlds economy so that users can escape the easily restricted fiat currencies. Value based in valuless debt notes is on its way out and this will probably be the segway into the next financial crises.

Can cryptocurrency survive a gobal financial crisis?




Is cryptocurrency a hedge against economic downturns?

The answer to this question is quite controversial, some would say yes because this is what crypto was made for; while others would chime that crypto is unproven in a downturn and will need to survive its first one before we can feel at ease about its survivability. Much of your perception on whether bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general will survive aneconomic crisis, is based on where you stand about cryptocurrency in general. Today we will talk about the possible survivability of cryptocurency in a crisis.

Is Venezuela a test case

Right now in Aouth America there are several financial crises transpiring that may create possible examples of how crypto will fare in a financial storm. In venezuela reports are coing out that many people are choosing to use cryptocurrency to pay for life expenses. The national government under President Maduro have begun to implement their own state backed cryptocurrency called the petro. The Petro is an asset pegged to the price of a barrel of oil and the Venezuelan government hopes it will help them escape dollar tyrany. Hyperinflation has taken its toll on Venezuelans but many of them were informed enough to seek financial refuge with cryptocurrencies. This is a great example of how when value leaves fiat the holders will seek to run to other assets to store value; that exodus now has cryptocurrency as an outlet for the fleeing fiat users.

We may see a big example soon enough

Much of the world is currently on the precipice of a financial downturn and if america keeps behaving the way it has been then we will likely see a major crises emerge in the next 5 years or so. some analysts see a move away from the dollar as a potential catalyst whilst others proclaim that the trade war and student debt will push us into the downturn of this decade. Unlike those times prior, now cryptocurrency has created and outlet for those funds that “dissappear” from markets as the major stakeholders cash out. The financial bigwigs are likely going to enter the cryptospace as they will soon see it as a way to maintain some value in the crises they create.
