In Monday’s Goldman Guide we discussed the disheartening chaos and violence all over the globe. Unfortunately, this amps of the finger pointing and blame game at both political conventions over the next two weeks which could lead to more anger and violence. We will step back. Healthcare is going nowhere, especially with the aging population here and globally in the industrialized world. We will look to this old guard today.
Harvard Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ – HBIO - $3.10) has been around for over 100 years and is a steady player in the small cap healthcare space. Below is the six month HBIO chart which highlights two important technical indicators. First, the stock has moved ahead of the 25-day EMA. Secondly, the stock has entered a rise from a trough in a head and shoulders patter over the last two months.
HBIO 6-Month Chart, 25 Day EMA
Harvard Bioscience, Inc. develops, manufactures, and markets scientific instruments, systems, and lab consumables used in life science research. The Company offers cell and animal physiology products, such as syringe pump and peristaltic pump products, as well as a range of instruments and accessories, including surgical products, infusion systems, microdialysis instruments, behavior research systems, isolated organ and tissue bath systems, and in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology recording, stimulation and analysis systems for tissue, organ, and animal based lab research under the Harvard Apparatus, CMA Microdialysis, Panlab, Coulbourn, Hugo-Sachs, InBreath Bioreactor, MCS, TBSI, and HEKA brands. It also provides products for molecular biology labs comprising pipettes and pipette tips, gloves, gel electrophoresis equipment and reagents, autoradiography films, thermal cycler accessories and reagents, sample preparation columns, tissue culture products, and general lab equipment and consumables under the Denville Scientific, AHN, and other brands. In addition, the Company offers spectrophotometers under the Libra, WPA, and BioDrop brands; microplate readers; amino acid analyzers; gel electrophoresis equipment under the Hoefer and Scie-Plas brands; and electroporation and electrofusion products, including systems and generators, electrodes, and accessories for research applications, such as in vivo, and in vitro gene delivery, cell fusion, and nuclear transfer cloning under the Harvard Apparatus BTX brand.
In keeping on the technical theme, HBIO currently has a short float of a super low 1.2%. On the fundamental side the 5-year PEG ratio is also a low 1.7. Additionally, Wall Street consensus has the revenue growing 38% over the next two years.
We believe HBIO is a solid short term play on a run to safety, i.e. the established. Look for a pop back to $4.00 over the next three months.
Have a great day!
