This Stock Gobbled Up Two Other Companies Last Year: 2016 Could Be the Year the Tables Turn

WINDSOR, ON / ACCESSWIRE / January 20, 2016 / The Wealthy Biotech Trader (or “WBT”), an investment newsletter focused on showing everyday investors new opportunities in rapidly growing, little-known, biotech, pharma and medical device stocks making news and subsequent market moves, would like to present several companies which have rapidly grown in size, predominately due to rapid M & A– and a company on the cusp of potentially doing the same.

When investing it is always prudent to be cautious, but no matter who you are: the end game is to make money. Let’s face it: the stock market is risky, and we need to be compensated for that risk. Shorter term corporate bonds will earn you about 10% in about 5 years, so if Investors are going to take risk, the expected potential return on riskier stocks needs to be several orders of magnitude higher than that–a savvy investor is always on the hunt for the next “10 bagger” or 1,000% return. It sounds crazy or aggressive, but it happens all the time–you just need to do your homework.

Typically to see returns in the 100% – 1,000% range small cap stocks need to be examined. Here is one that has already made such a huge run, and a few that have the makings to do the same:

#1) Mesa Laboratories Inc. (MLAB): This is a stock that has made a humungous run over the past 5, 10, 15 and even 20 years! Twenty years ago MLAB was a $5 stock (penny stock), and last summer it hit $125… a “25 bagger” or 25X your money. Most Investors like to think in time-frames shorter than 10 years, and this stock has also done well in that frame. MLAB would have made its Investors 500% over the past 5years, and that is also impressive.

MLAB has an interesting business that spans several divisions: their Instruments Division designs, manufactures and markets quality control instruments and disposable products utilized in connection with the healthcare, food and beverage, and semiconductor industries. Their Biological Indicators Division manufactures and markets biological indicators and distributes chemical indicators used to assess the effectiveness of sterilization processes. Their Continuous Monitoring Division designs, develops and markets systems which are used to monitor various environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity and differential pressure to ensure that critical storage and processing conditions are maintained.

MLAB has created an exceptional amount of value for its Shareholders and should be watch-listed for the future.

#2) PositiveID Corporation (PSID): This company has had a great 18 months. PSID has in the past 3 months alone acquired two revenue producing companies (Thermomedics and E-N-G Mobile Systems, Inc). Although that puts PSID on track for another record year for revenue growth, the real upside lies in their internally developed Firefly Dx device.

In short, Firefly Dx is a “lab in hand” that can test anyone or virtually anything for contamination to ensure food safety, enhance homeland security and protect against infectious disease. The best depiction of this revolutionary device, which is at the latter stages of development and looks to service a section for the $27 billion PCR market, is on its dedicated page on the company’s website:

At roughly $0.02 per share, or ~$8.5 million market value, PSID seems interesting from a potential growth prospect view as they appear to be the only company developing something as important as Firefly Dx.

#3) Aclaris Therapeutics Inc. (ACRS). This company looks very promising as it is the best performing IPO from the past 12 months. Relative performance is important in evaluating a stock, and #1 is not a bad place to be. Since October 6th, the stock has returned 81% from its IPO price, not too shabby considering the NASDAQ is down almost 4% in the same time-frame.

Aclaris Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage specialty pharmaceutical company focused on identifying, developing, and commercializing innovative and differentiated drugs to address significant unmet needs in dermatology. The company has a focus on Seborrheic Keratosis. SK lesions are one of the most common skin tumors, affecting over 83 million people in the United States. SK lesions are often pigmented, have a waxy, scaly, slightly elevated appearance and typically multiple growths are present.

The upside for this name in the near-term will continue to be the future treatment of SK, but slightly hidden is the fact that they plan on using their technology to treat common warts, a huge market, that is currently treated with barbaric removal methods.

#4) Biotie Therapies Corp. (BITI). This company is an example of potential being cut short. BITI was recently acquired by Acorda Therapeutics Inc for an amount that is 65% higher than their June 2015 IPO price. Sounds great, but no one will ever know the true value of their deep pipeline of broad indications.

Biotie is a specialized drug development company focused on products for neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders. Biotie’s development has delivered Selincro (nalmefene) for alcohol dependence, which received European marketing authorization in 2013 and is currently being rolled out across Europe by partner Lundbeck. The current development products include tozadenant for Parkinson’s disease, which is in Phase 3 development, and two additional compounds which are in Phase 2 development for cognitive disorders including Parkinson’s disease dementia, and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), a rare fibrotic disease of the liver.

That is four drugs with billion dollar potential; but it appears the Shareholders have chosen to hedge their bets on those tricky trials–after all, a bird in hand is worth two in the bush.
