Neurocrine Biosciences

While exploring biopharmaceutical companies and looking for something in the small/mid-cap company domain, I found Neurocrine Biosciences, a neuroscience-focused biopharmaceutical company, which discovers, develops, and delivers various treatments for people with neurological, endocrine, and psychiatric disorders. The company’s portfolio includes treatments for tardive dyskinesia, Parkinson’s disease, endometriosis, and uterine fibroids, as well as clinical programs in various therapeutic areas. Its lead asset is INGREZZA, a VMAT2 inhibitor for the treatment of tardive dyskinesia.

Let’s jump straight into the numbers

The California based company having a market cap of $7.8B has a P/E ratio of 17.6 that number is due to the earnings of $445M with revenue of $1.07B. EPS of $4.7 which is fairly good for such a stock. The company is fairly undervalued, as per analysts it is undervalued by a whopping 72.8% with a fair value of $302.8 per share.

The Price to Earnings ratio or the PE ratio is good at 17.6 as compared to the industry average of 25.2. The price to earnings growth ratio [PEG] is 0.5, which is supposedly ‘good’. A PEG ratio of 1.0 or lower suggests a stock is fairly priced or even undervalued. Here’s the forecast of the company:

The Future?

Well all seems good and it does according to the numbers, we are well aware of the neuroscience boom that will happen sooner or later and that’s what the company is banking on, its good intentions to combat Parkinsons with sophisticated techniques has made it revered amongst the analysts at Simply Wall St.

The company outperforms the industry and market both in earnings and growth, that’s a positive sign. The EPS growth tells a similar tale.

What surprised me while going through some analyses as there were hardly any risks associated with the company, don’t take my word for it, do your research, but for now, that’s what I came across.

Past performance

The company has a notable increase in the profit margins to 41.6% from 9% last year. The earnings have also grown by 77.6%. It posts a considerably high ROE of around 33% with high ROE and ROCE as compared to the industry, 23.2% and 12% respectively.

Financial Health

The company has good financial health where all of its cash is more than the debt, though the debt isn’t reducing, the debt is covered by the operating cash flow which is fairly good. Its short term assets satisfy both the long and short term liabilities. The company doesn’t pay dividends as of now.

Before you go, here’s some recent news for the stock: Neuroscience pens a $2.6B pact with Sosei Heptares; its focus on high-risk research and development has brought the companies together.

Happy Investing!
