"OPKO is well diversified into diagnostics, pharmaceuticals and opportunistic healthcare products, including vitamins and human growth hormone. Perhaps more important is the strong share price action, with shares currently selling at $8.58 and in terrific volume. The shares have almost doubled in the past year. They are up 17% year-to-date. What's not to like? Earnings are not far in the future, but wealth creation in this story is about monetizing many of these assets as well."
. . .I am very positive on [OPKO's recent acquisition of Prost-Data]. It adds horizontal integration for OPKO's point-of-care diagnostic systems and is another outlet for the company's 4Kscore prostate diagnostic system, a next-generation PSA test. The company is also developing a point-of-care version of 4Kscore. This is a major push forward, in the sense that it is diagnostic, quick, cheap and, hopefully, soon available. It will add significant value to the company."
