Best Medical Stocks To Invest In 2017


One of the best things about Seeking Alpha is the availability of research regarding stocks so risky that virtually no Wall Street advisors or analysts who care about keeping their jobs would ever consider recommending them – however large these stocks’ upside might be. The subject of this report is a company sufficiently dicey to earn its latest audit report a going concern qualification, but whose most recent quarterly results and guidance strongly suggest that a remarkable turnaround is underway.


Zynex (OTCQB:ZYXI) designs, manufactures, rents, and sells non-invasive medical devices, with a focus on electrotherapy products. Applications of electrotherapy include pain management, as well as stroke and injury rehabilitation. The use of electrotherapy for pain management has been cited as a useful means of fighting iatrogenic opioid dependence.

According to a 10Q filed by Zynex on 11/14/16:

“During the fourth quarter of 2015, the electrotherapy industr y experienced a significant development when the Company’s largest competitor (DJO/Empi) announced the closure of their Empi electrotherapy division. Empi previously held a large share of the electrotherapy market. Management believes this presents a significant growth opportunity for the Company. The Company has recruited many former Empi sales representatives, including those in areas where it had no previous representation. In addition, during 2016, the Company’s orders have been steadily increasing as compared to 2015. To focus on growth and the potential for future positive cash flow, the Company has committed its limited resources to the new salesforce, including the supporting product production and supporting administrative (customer service and billing) personnelThrough September 30, 2016, we have recruited and retained over 70 former Empi sales representatives.”
