Nuvilex Is the Rodney Dangerfield of Biotechs

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Aug 8, 2013) - In a newly released article, Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, notes that Nuvilex Inc. (OTCQB: NVLX) trades and is valued like a biotech version of the late, great comedian Rodney Dangerfield, who was famous for his "I Get No Respect" mantra.

Moreover, Goldman Small Cap Research believes that is all about to change and predicts that Nuvilex will ultimately turn from Rodney Dangerfield into Cinderella.

As an example, Goldman refers to the surprising trading and valuation of one of Nuvilex's sister biotech stocks this quarter. The exciting and very promising company, Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc., recently reached a peak rise in price of nearly 300% in the past 3 weeks.

Analyst Rob Goldman notes, "While the magnitude of the rise has baffled some market watchers, one of the major drivers was news that in preclinical animal models, Inovio demonstrated that its vaccine showed the potential to reduce tumors and prevent tumor recurrence by a wide margin versus the peer technology."

"Nonetheless, if success in an animal model cancer study and a vaccine in Phase II clinical trials are worth a peak market cap of over $500M, Goldman posits that the $70M in market cap Nuvilex should be worth at least half that much considering it is further along the development path."

After a series of fits and starts, Nuvilex now owns exclusive rights to a live-cell encapsulation platform technology for all cancers and that has not only successfully completed Phase II trials for advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer, but comprehensive animal trials for mammary (breast) cancer, and is on the verge of acquiring similar rights to the technology to fight diabetes. Moreover, management is gearing up for next stage of trials for pancreatic cancer due to its outstanding Phase II trial results.

In the article, Goldman suggests that if the Company had gone through these steps in quicker fashion or its stock was uplisted, its market cap would be at a similar level to that of Inovio. Still, Inovio has been around for 30 years, so it has taken them quite some time to get to this point, despite its amazing rise in 6 weeks.

As institutional and retail investors scour the health care family for under-the-radar stocks trading at major discounts to their peer group despite being further along in the development process, Goldman deems it is likely that Nuvilex will begin to get the respect it is due and investors will be rewarded.
