Accolade Stock: An Employer Telehealth Platform

Remember when a few years ago Amazon announced it would revolutionize healthcare, partnering with heavyweights Berkshire Hathaway and J.P. Morgan?

Using big data, AI algorithms, and various telehealth services, Amazon promised to improve primary and urgent […]

Relay Therapeutics Stock: Pure Play on AI Drug Discovery

A few years ago, we wrote an article about how computational chemistry is merging with artificial intelligence technologies to speed up drug discovery. Computational chemistry is a scientific field that uses computer simulations to help solve chemical problems.

Babylon Stock: Why It’s Dropping Like a Rock

Why do some investment firms send out alerts to subscribers explaining large stock price increases? That’s not what investors want to know. Look up any given stock and you’ll find that their questions always relate to some unknown calamity. When bad things happen, people turn to the Ministry of Truth for an explanation. Rarely will […]

IQVIA: A Leading Digital Healthcare Stock

Data is the new oil. It’s a phrase that regular readers will recognize, but we can’t take credit for coining it. The credit actually goes to a British data scientist named Clive Humby. Of course, it took a marketing guy to point out that raw oil must be turned into a product like gas or […]

Why We No Longer Like Volpara Health Stock

There are stocks that you want in your portfolio because the technology sounds cool or the company is on a mission to save the world, or because you don’t want to miss out on the latest craze like cryptocurrency or pot stocks.

AbCellera Stock: Why We Love the Uncertainty

Think about how you might perceive that boring monthly salary vs. a stock options award at bonus time. This psychological phenomenon is what makes certain activities such as […]

Top Digital Health Companies That Amazon is Backing

Earlier this month, we profiled the latest frontline battle between Walmart (WMT) and Amazon (AMZN), with both retailers investing heavily in autonomous vehicle delivery. But that’s a mere skirmish compared to a much bigger prize: the $8.5 trillion global healthcare market, with the United States accounting for more than 40% of all spending at $3.65 […]

Definitive Healthcare Stock: Commercial Intelligence SaaS

It’s easy to understand why the market assigns a premium to software-as-a–service (SaaS) business models. Typically, such companies have a broad customer base with no single customer accounting for more than a small fraction of revenues.
