The fundamental description of the idea

In general, the healthcare industry in which this corporation operates is defensive when the stock market falls. Therefore, the purchase of this tool does not contradict our expectations for the current year.

Incyte’s revenue has been growing very fast for the last 5 years. In 2017, it increased by almost 39%. At the same time, the company suffered a net loss and negative net cash flow from operating activities due to a doubling of research and development costs.

Investments made in 2017 could provide good financial results during 2018. Judging by the results of the company’s work in the first three quarters of 2018, the chances of this are quite high.

Incyte Corp. plans to publish reports for the fourth quarter of 2018 and the entire 2018 on the 14th of February, 2019 before the opening of the main trading session. Analysts’ consensus forecasts show high expectations for the company’s financial results.
