Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) have emerged as the two tech giants in the cloud wars. Let's take a quick look at the two businesses.
We just added Cempra to our Top Picks list this week and we got good news right away. If we turn back to the Top Pick dossier we can see that Cempra has a long list of possible uses for its drug treatments. One the largest ones we did not discuss is all of a sudden front and center after preliminary results for a Phase II study were released. Here are some snippets with our own emphasis added:
According to the National Institutes of Health, up to 16 million Americans, or two to five percent of the U.S. population, has NASH, so this is a massive patient group that Cempra is looking to treat. Based on the safety profile and activity seen in the first six patients, Cempra plans to continue the Phase 2 study to obtain data from up to 15 NASH patients. Enrollment is expected to complete in the first quarter of 2017.
Pierre Gholam, M.D., from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and principal investigator of the study had this to say:
What This Means
In English, this is yet another successful interim study for Cempra that has the potential to be a blockbuster. News like this might act as a buffer for the stock price if the company gets bad news when it has its Advisory Committee (AdCom) with the FDA in early November and then gets its FDA decision on December 27th and December 28th for its other treatments.
Cempra exemplifies the traits we look for in a Top Pick -- broad based exposure to a booming thematic shift -- in this case antibiotic resistance, a phenomenon that the United Nations just declared "the greatest and most urgent global risk" in its meeting on September 21st. The stock will gyrate, often time for seemingly (and literally) no reason. Focus on the big announcements, which we will alert you to.
In sum, this is more very good news for Cempra.
