China Virus Concern Hammers Asian Stock Sentiment on Holiday Eve
(Bloomberg) -- Financial markets in Asia reeled on concern a deadly virus emanating from China will spread through the region. Moves were exacerbated as traders closed out positions in the run-up to Lunar New Year holidays.Chinese shares in Hong Kong headed for their worst day since October 2018, while global traders offloaded more than 7 billion yuan ($1 billion) of mainland shares through exchange links. MSCI Inc.'s Asian gauge dropped 1%.The virus is another test for a bull run in global equities, which rose to record last week after shrugging off concerns of a wider conflict in the Middle East. Four people have died and a number of medical workers have been infected by the new illness, which emerged in the city of Wuhan. It has since been detected in people in Japan, Thailand, South Korea, as well as other parts of China."It is uncertain how the virus outbreak will develop in China during the holidays," said Jackson Wong, asset management director at Amber Hill Capital Ltd. "We are holding more cash and we are avoiding travel-related stocks and some technology stocks that had already jumped a lot earlier."The Hang Seng China Enterprises Index slumped more than 3% in Hong Kong, where equities were also hit after Moody's Investor Service dowgraded the city's rating and China's new top official in Hong Kong urged the city to enact national security legislation. The CSI 300 Index of stocks in Shanghai and Shenzhen dropped 1.7%.The reaction seeped into broader global markets. S&P 500 Index f

3 Healthcare Stocks That Can Double in the Next Year
Risk and reward are two of the most commonly used words in investing. The two are symbiotic and complement each other perfectly. Where there is more risk, the reward is likely to be more abundant. Of course, the equation works the other way too: less risk, probably less reward.The thesis is simple: a company such as Google is likely a pretty safe place for an investment. But with a market cap of $1 trillion, how much value can the company add to its share price? On the other hand, investing in a fledgling biotech with life-changing treatments in the pipeline could potentially see an investment yield extraordinary returns. Let's not forget, though, this sort of investment also carries a significant amount of risk with it.With this in mind, TipRanks' Stock Screener pointed us in the direction of three Healthcare stocks the experts on the Street think could soar in the year ahead. And by soar, we mean at least double their current value. The risk here as an investor is higher, but as we know by now, so are the possible rewards. As an added bonus, all three currently have a Strong Buy consensus rating from the Street. Let's take a look at the data.ProQR Therapeutics (PRQR)ProQR's back story is unusual. The company was founded after CEO Daniel de Boer's newborn son was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. De Boer, with the help of several co-founders, then formed ProQR - a biotech with a focus on providing new medicines for rare diseases. There are approximately 7,000 rare diseases in the world today, and only 400 currently have treatmen

Boeing likely to take 'substantial charge' on 737 Max: analyst
Boeing Co. is likely to take a "substantial charge" in the fourth quarter to account for the mounting costs of its 737 Max debacle, analysts at Canaccord Genuity said in a note Friday. The analysts, led by Ken Herbert, lowered their price target on the stock to $350 from $370 and also lowered their sales and profit estimates. The Max production ramp could be slower once the plane returns to the skies, they added. The 737 Max has been grounded worldwide since March following two deadly crashes connected to a faulty anti-stall system, and its return-to-service date has stretched for months. "We are surprised the stock has held up as well as it has considering the company is perhaps facing the most severe crisis in its 100- year history, but we continue to see the financial risk as not fully reflected in the stock," the Canaccord analysts said. Shares of Boeing have dropped 8% in the past 12 months, contrasting with advances of 26% and 20% for the S&P 500 index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average .
