Invitae: Coming Out Of The Cash Burn

Invitae, a next-gen healthcare/biotech company, has seen its stock getting hammered due to strong worries about a looming bankruptcy due to reckless cash burn. However, in the last few quarters, the company has started to shift from growth-at-all-costs to focusing on reducing the cash burn, with a $100M annualized reduction in Q1 alone. Invitae continues to target strong long-term growth and to become cash flow positive by 2025. At the current valuation, the risk/reward is shifting significantly such that even a small bet could lead to compelling returns.

Invitae: The Hype Train Crashed As We Warned Last Year

Invitae is a truly hyped-up story stock. When growth is slowing and you have no profitability to show for it, the market's hammering of NVTA stock is well-justified. We urge investors to be cautious in our previous article and beware of its hype. The stock has fallen almost 90% since our article was published. Invitae's underlying metrics continue to look awful amid slowing growth. So don't even bother considering adding a speculative position yet. We reiterate our Hold rating on NVTA stock. Investors are urged to avoid buying into its story thesis.
