LCI may start to climb after today's FDA approval

NYSE:LCI   LANNETT CO INC
Lannett stock has struggled lately due to opioid litigation and a weakening of its earnings forecast back in November. However, the company announced several product launches in December and early January, and today Lannett got FDA approval for, of all things, a cocaine-based anesthetic nasal spray. The stock has shown little positive reaction to any of this news, but that might change if analysts start to adjust their earnings forecasts to reflect the new product offerings. Despite its underwhelming reaction to the news today, I think Lannett may start to show momentum this week as investors digest the announcement from today.

Lannett has an attractive forward P/E of 6.84 and a history of beating analyst expectations on its earnings reports. Its last round of guidance was neutral, with increased administrative and sales costs offset by decreased tax burden and interest expense. Lannett should have enough cash on hand to cover its product launches thanks to a convertible notes offering last year. It has about $100 million in cash per its last earnings report, although with apparently $66 million in debt due toward the end of this year.
Comment: Yeah, this worked out pretty nicely today. It's at resistance, but I am swinging it because I think it can break out.
