Grow your portfolio with Biosyent on this correction

Biosyent (TSXV:RX) stock’s meaningful correction of 23% from its 52-week high is a huge bargain. The specialty pharmaceutical company has been very profitable and making excellent use of its assets and capital. It has had returns on assets and returns on equity of +22% and +24%, respectively, every year since 2011. Its recent net margin was about 25%.

Biosyent sources, acquires, or in-licenses innovative pharmaceutical products to sell primarily in Canada. These products are proven safe and effective to improve the lives of patients.

At $8.02 per share as of writing, Biosyent trades at a forward price-to-earnings multiple of about 18.7. The analyst consensus from Thomson Reuters has a mean 12-month target of $11.70 per share on the stock, which represents almost 46% near-term upside potential on the stock.

Management estimates the company will grow at a rate of about 20% in the long run. It has some products with +$25 million in peak penetration expected to launch in 2019 or 2020. So, now’s a perfect time to accumulate the growth stock.

Notably, the stock is reporting its third-quarter results today. So, it may be especially volatile around this time.
