da hätte ich aufgrund der news etwas mehr Bewegung erwartet. Die ganzen pump n dump Buden donnern bei deutlich sinnloseren News zu Covid ja auch gerne mal 100% hoch. Aber gut, ich will nicht meckern. Spätestens bis zum 8. Juni dürfte sich der Trend positiv nach oben entwickeln...

Executive Chairman Jon Cohen of BioReference Laboratories, owned by Opko Health (NASDAQ:OPK), on CNBC's Mad Money confirmed "for the first time on broadcast" that the co. has the NFL contract , and will test all 32 teams.
In a question about whether there will be a NFL season, the Executive Chairman said he couldn't comment.
The news comes just hours after the co. confirmed it received the contract for surge testing for the CDC, after which shares popped, ending the day higher by nearly 8%.
In July, BioReference landed a contract with the NFL to test all 32 teams for COVID-19 as the season kicks off this August. The company will also be responsible for testing all of the NBA's players, referees, teams, and league staff for the deadly virus.
If that wasn't enough, BioReference has also signed a contract with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to supply the organization with an indefinite supply of COVID-19 commercial tests for the coronavirus emergency response.
Even before the coronavirus, BioReference had a solid reputation stemming from its multiple testing contracts with federal, state, and local governments. As of now, BioReference is seeing up to 40,000 requisitions per day, with 11 million patients being administered its tests every year. The company also has the capacity to administer up to 50,000 COVID-19 pathogen tests per day and 400,000 COVID-19 antibody tests per day. BioReference accounts for 70% of Opko Health's revenue.
Solid pipeline The company's leading drug candidate is Somatrogon, a once-weekly hormone replacement therapy designed to induce growth in height. In phase 3 clinical studies partnered with Pfizer (NYSE:PFE), Somatrogon was able to beat the efficacy of the current standard-of-care drug, Genotropin. If Somatrogon replaces Genotropin, it will be able to capture a $498 million market based on Genotropin's 2019 sales. The company plans to file a Biologic License Application (BLA) for Somatrogon's approval with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) later this year.
Momentum from existing products Another drug in Opko Health's repertoire that's performing quite well is Rayaldee. Rayaldee is the only approved treatment for a thyroid disorder in patients with chronic kidney disease. In the first quarter of 2020, the drug's prescription count grew by a staggering 78% compared with the same period last year, bringing in $9.9 million in revenue.
Last year, the drug saw over 50,000 prescriptions in the U.S., and its sales will likely see continued momentum as it enters international markets. Opko Health has signed milestone agreements with distribution partners in Japan and Germany amounting to $949 million, with double-digit percentage royalties on sales of Rayaldee.
What's the verdict? Currently, Opko Health has $45.2 million in cash and investments, coupled with $213.8 million in convertible notes, making its debt levels somewhat manageable. That said, the company's financials do not look great at first glance. Opko Health's revenue decreased from $222.5 million in Q1 2019 to $211.4 million in Q1 2020. Its net loss did narrow to $59.1 million in the most recent quarter from $80.7 million during the same period last year.
"sell the news" im Spiel sondern ein gehässiges shorten durch die immer wieder in action tretenden "shorter Feinde" von Phil Frost dem CEO und Hauptaktionär von OPKO. Das ist leider nichts neues bei dieser Firma. Jetzt haben wir "gab close" bei ca. 5,14 $ und es kann wieder Richtung Norden gehen.
solche Gelegenheiten. Viele Glücksritter die vor den Zahlen eingestiegen und auf schnelle Gewinne gehofft haben, verkaufen jetzt und die Daytrader steigen vor dem Wochenende meist auch aus. Gute Gelegenheit nochmal nachzukaufen. Ab nächster Woche kann es dann weitergehen im Aufwärtstrend ;-)
