[ May 12, 2013 | Author: Admin | Weather: | Mood: normal]

Although we don’t believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes — just in case they’re material to our investing thesis.

What: Shares of Sangamo Biosciences (NASDAQ: SGMO  ) , a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing zinc finger DNA-binding proteins, rose as much as 11% after the company reported its first-quarter results.

So what: Although Sangamo has no drugs currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration, it still generated $4.6 million in revenue primarily due to a collaboration it signed with Shire last year. Net loss per share also shrank modestly to $0.13 from a loss per share of $0.14 in the year-ago period. Both figures easily surpassed the $3.8 million in revenue and $0.17 per-share loss expected by analysts. In addition, Sangamo is forecasting full-year revenue of $20 million to $24 million, more or less in line with the $20.7 million currently estimated by Wall Street.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Greg Harmon]

    Next up is the founder and president of Dragonfly Capital Management: Greg Harmon, CFA. His pick for 2013 is dredging services company Great Lakes Dredge & Dock(NASDAQ:GLDD), which he believes will be a winner as the U.S. economy starts growing again.

    In fact, the company has already been looking like a winner. GLDD recorded an even more impressive year than Femsa did in 2012, gaining more than 60%.

    “You might think that picking this name as the winner in 2013 is crazy after its climb in 2012,” Harmon acknowledges. “But the technicals support a much greater move.”

    He points to the chart’s consolidation channel, Relative Strength Index and Moving Average Convergence Divergence histogram as bullish indicators. And for those who aren’t fans of the technicals, the few-and-far-between analysts who do follow this stock are bullish as well.

    Only time will tell if they — and Harmon — are right.
