Recent News & Updates
Fulgent Genetics: Improving Outlook, But Shares Aren't Quite A Buy
I was bearish on Fulgent in 2021, expecting the stock to slump as Covid-19 testing revenues faded. Delta and omicron have extended the window for testing dramatically. Even so, Fulgent stock has underwhelmed in recent months. The company's business has improved enough to mitigate much of the bearish case, however I'm still no more than neutral on the stock.
Fulgent Genetics: Undervalued, High Growth, And A COVID Hedge To Boot
Fulgent's COVID testing business isn't going away any time soon and will continue to gush cash for reinvestment, even allowing for melting ice cube scenarios. Fulgent's core business continues to grow at a high rate and has benefited from COVID testing related capitalization. Fulgent, with its brilliant founder, strong insider ownership, plummeting EV, and high growth core business, is undervalued.
