Hedge Fund Trade of the Week: Teva

Where’s the fast money finding opportunity? In this regular feature Anthony Scaramucci aka The Hedge reveals his latest greatest pick!

This week’s trade is long Teva a pharmaceutical company specializing in generic medicines.

According to its website, Teva produces generic drugs in all major therapeutics and steriles in a variety of dosage forms, from tablets and capsules to ointments, creams and liquids.

In addition, Teva manufactures innovative drugs in niche markets where it has a relative advantage in research and development.

Check out the chart and some of the company’s stats:

Teva (TEVA)
Sector: Health Care
Industry: Biotechnology and Drugs
Based in: Israel
Market Cap: $42.9 billion
52-week high: $62.40
52-week low: $44.86

Anthony Scaramucci selects this stock as his Hedge Fund Trade of the Week because it’s been beaten up recently. The stock touched a 52-week low in Monday's session.

As you might recall, this stock was also his hedge fund trade of the week back on February 11th when the stock was trading around $51.

Scaramucci admits he deserves a little Fast Fire for being early, but as you might imagine, he thought it was a value at $51 and now he finds it even moreof a value at $45.71, the stock’s closing price on Monday April 25th.

”I still like this name and I’m bringing it back out as a hedge fund trade of the week,” he says.

He thinks reports that that Biogen is in Phase 3 trials of a rival drug to treat MS were largely behind the recent sell-off - a move he calls "an over reaction."

He’s reiterating a price target of $70 on the stock.

And Scaramucci isn’t the only top hedgie that’s bullish. Blue Ridge, Maverick, and John Paulson also hold long positions in Teva.
