WiLAN (NASDAQ:WILN) manages the intellectual property of third party inventors to ensure they receive fair compensation for their investment in research and development. By enabling patent owners to sell or license patented intellectual property, WiLAN helps provide a financial incentive for inventors to invest in the development of new technologies.
WiLAN has gone through several difficult years brought-on by the combination of the AIA (see below), some legal missteps, and just plain bad luck. In response, WiLAN has adapted by taking advantage of the fire-sale on patents to expand its portfolio, and has started to exercise its property rights in foreign jurisdictions. An interesting example is the litigation against SONY in Nanjing China and in Germany.
More than 290 companies have taken licenses with WiLAN, and there are more than 50 on-notice and in various stages of litigation. With the increased support for property rites, that we expect from Trump, the positive resolution of this litigation becomes increasingly likely.

When most investors think of diabetes stocks, names like Novo Nordisk A/S (ADR) (NYSE:NVO) and MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) come to mind. And well they should. Novo Nordisk is the biggest insulin company in the world, and while MannKind is relatively small, it’s a name that turns heads simply because it came up with an inhalable insulin that – after a slow start – is getting a little traction.
In both cases though, the paradigm is the same one that was first used decades ago. That is, if a person isn’t making their own insulin, then it must be introduced externally. What if instead a diabetic’s glucose levels could be controlled by turning on the cells in their body responsible for processing that sugar? That’s the approach Cell MedX Corp (OTCMKTS:CMXC) is taking, using a relatively new but very compelling science.
While chemical-based manufactured pharmaceuticals were largely the core of healthcare for well over the past century, it’s become clear that our bodies – right down to our cells – are also electrical in nature. Not only do they produce it, they need it to function properly. The FDA has even recently approved a therapeutic device that delivers mild electrical currents to and through an individual’s body as a means of treating pain. This “electromedicine” has also shown a certain degree of efficacy as a treatment for several illnesses, including cancer. Specifically, electrical currents have been demonstrated to force pleomorphic cancer microbes into hibernation, essentially making a cancerous cell a normal, healthy cell again. So, using an electrical current as a means of therapy for diabetics isn’t far-fetched at all. Indeed, it’s quite brilliant.
As for how Cell MedX is using the idea, it’s actually quite simple. The device is called an eBalance. At first glance it just looks like another ordinary tablet computer. A closer inspection of the e-Balance device, however, makes it clear that it’s not just another tablet. It’

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Own Right Now: Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited(TEVA)
- [By Ben Levisohn]
Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (TEVA) slashed its earnings guidance today and told investors that in 2017, it would be “focused on execution.” Of course, I’ve never heard a company tell investors that, hey, we’re not really going to focus on executing this year, but what do I know? I’m just a blogger. Maxim’s Gabrielle Zhou and team try to explain what Teva means:
Teva provided an updated business outlook for 2017. The company expects to continue its execution on the integration of the Actavis transaction. However, Teva reduced full year 2017 guidance…Net revenues are now estimated in a range of $23.8B-$24.5B, non-GAAP EPS is $4.90-$5.30 (based on weighted average shares of 1,076M). Recall that Teva provided a 2016-2019 preliminary financial outlook in July 2016 that included projected 2017 revenues of $25.2B-$26.2B and non-GAAP EPS of $6.00-$6.50; reduced guidance reflects delays in the timing of generic launches (some by a year), price erosion and external competition.
Conclusion: we downgrade the stock to Hold from Buy. Teva is working to realize synergies from the Actavis business integration, launch new products in 2017, and generate free cash flow to the company, but challenges in the near term to the core generic and specialty business are becoming bigger issues. We will have to wait and see the company refocus on developing its organic growth. As such, we are downgrading the stock to Hold from Buy and lowering the price target to $41 from $49
