T3 guides to the Black Friday sales
Gyms have been one of the business models hurt most by the pandemic. Lockdowns had forced most gyms to shut down, and some simply never reopened. For gyms open today, strict capacity restrictions provide yet another temporary headwind for success.
Considering all of this, it’s no wonder that Planet Fitness (NYSE:PLNT) had such a bad quarter. Regardless, it is a strong long-term buy.
How is the company is doing today?
In Planet Fitness’ most recent quarter, it posted a 36.8% year-over-year decrease in revenues and a 5.6% year-over-year decrease in same-store sales. Its adjusted EBITDA was cut in half to $32 million, and the company reported its first GAAP net income loss in years — ouch. Encouragingly for investors, management believes brighter days are ahead.
In the same report, CEO Chris Rondeau pounded the table on his conviction in long-term market share gains for Planet Fitness. The structure of its operations deserves a lot of the credit for that.
Fortunately for the company, its franchisee business model creates an asset-light approach to operating gyms. Rather than owning the vast majority of Planet Fitness locations, the company collects rent from franchisees owning roughly 75% of stores. This approach allows Planet Fitness to enjoy EBITDA margins double that of competitors like Crunch Fitness, and enabled staying-power for Planet Fitness while others like Gold’s Gym declared bankruptcy due to the pandemic.
The profile of a typical Planet Fitness franchisee is also ideal. Company franchisees own, on average, 20 locations in multiple states. This fosters durability among Planet Fitness location-owners, which also served the company immensely well during a tough 2020.
It’s nice that Planet Fitness can survive turbulent times, but how will it perform as the world begins to recover? Early signs are positive.
Today, 95% of Planet Fitness locations are open once more. Usage rates at the open locations are surprisingly in line with pre-COVID levels, and its membership of 14.1 million is flat from before the pandemic. Ideally, member count would be growing — but considering the global pandemic, status quo is just fine.
In September, Planet Fitness resumed national marketing for the first time since the pandemic began. The early results have been solid, with a chunk of locations actually returning to positive year-over-year membership growth during the quarter. Based on the early advertising success, the national gym chain decided to increase funds allocated to marketing for the rest of 2020. This does not sound like a struggling company.
While the pandemic has been a massive demand shock for gym chains, people will likely still want to work out when they feel it’s safe to do so. With Planet Fitness’ industry-low $10-a-month membership — and the economic pain cause by COVID-19 — it’s reasonable to believe the company could emerge out of the pandemic even stronger than before.
More growth to come
Through all of the chaos, Planet Fitness opened 29 new locations during the quarter and began to capitalize on the industry consolidation it has

Large numbers of protesters and demonstrators are expected in the District this week, including thousands tonight at Black Lives Matter Plaza. Currently, DC officials say they’re not aware of any credible threats of violence in the District, and that while parking will be restricted downtown tonight and tomorrow, they haven’t called up the National Guard or recommended businesses board up.
Many businesses have still decided to take extra precautions by boarding up or closing, and it seems individual Washingtonians have done the same — some local supermarkets have been depleted of food staples like meat and eggs.
When it comes to winning biotech stocks this year, coronavirus vaccine developers automatically come to many investors’ minds. However, one of the top-performing stocks in the sector is Northwest Biotherapeutics (OTC:NWBO), which focuses on immunotherapies that treat cancer, and has returned a staggering 408% since January.
The main reason why investors are so excited about Northwest Biotherapeutics’ prospects is that the company’s 14-year-long phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate its one and only immunotherapy candidate, DCVax-L, as a treatment for glioblastoma, has concluded. Should you consider buying the stock in anticipation of the data release? Let’s find out together.
Glioblastoma is a deadly form of brain cancer prevalent in up to 15% of people with brain tumors. Even after patients receive standard of care (SOC) treatments consisting of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, their median survival time comes down to just 15.5 months in historical studies. DCVax-L is an experimental immunotherapy that seeks to stimulate patients’ own immune systems to fight cancer growth.
The potential biologic has been in phase 3 clinical trials since December 2006. In the study, all glioblastoma patients receive SOC treatments, while a random portion also receives DCVax-L via upper arm injections. A key trial endpoint requires at least 233 patient deaths out of a total of 331 participants enrolled to calculate a survival benefit for DCVax-L, if any. The company completed its study on July 24, and the data is currently being reviewed by statisticians. In the meantime, speculations on the results have ranged from wildly enthusiastic to pessimistic from excited investors and short-sellers.
The bullish case
The bullish case for Northwest Biotherapeutics stock is straightforward: The DCVax-L clinical trial was supposed to wrap up as early as November 2016, but had to keep going because the projected number of deaths had not occurred by then.
Around the time when the trial was enrolling, only 3% of glioblastoma patients who received SOC survived over five years. Due to extremely low survival rates for patients who receive SOC treatments, bullish investors argue that there is no other logical explanation for the clinical study going into overtime than DCVax-L keeping patients alive longer than expected.
The bearish case
The bearish case is a lot more complicated.
Clinical trials investigating experimental biologics for deadly diseases with a lack of therapeutic options usually have pre-planned interim analyses. DCVax-L’s phase 3 trial had two such analyses built into the study.
The analysis is conducted by an independent data-monitoring committee (DMC) that can recommend that the trial stop early if an experimental therapy demonstrates statistically meaningful efficacy against SOC treatments. This way, the biologic can quickly advance to the approval stage in order to save more lives.
Northwest Biotherapeutics’ DMC carried out two interim analyses on the DCVax-L study in 2017 and 2018 (more on this later). Both times, however, the company published the DMC’s findings as blinded, and the trial continued. Unfortunately, that doesn’t make any sense at all in the context of
You might actually be able to legally buy weed soon after election if N.J. voters approve referendum, top lawmaker says
EDITOR’S NOTE: NJ Cannabis Insider produces exclusive weekly content and monthly events geared toward those interested in the marijuana and hemp industries. To subscribe, visit njcannabisinsider.biz.
New Jersey’s medical marijuana dispensaries could begin selling recreational marijuana to the public shortly after voters approve a ballot question seeking to legalize it, according to a state lawmaker involved in potential legalization.
Sen. Nick Scutari, D-Union, said Tuesday during an interview broadcast live on NJ.com’s Facebook page that he hopes dispensaries are preparing to have more marijuana available and exceed the need of their patients to begin selling to customers over the age of 21.
“The currently operating medical cannabis dispensaries would have an opportunity to sell to the general public for people over 21, if they can certify that they enough product to satisfy their patients that they’re already treating,” Scutari said.
“We might be able to flip the switch and people might be able to get marijuana, legally, right after the vote,” he said.
That’s a big if, because there are 92,000 registered patients, and the dispensaries have long struggled to supply cannabis to the state’s registered patients. Patients have complained about long lines and drives, as well as product shortages, in the limited program. The number of patients has ballooned since Gov. Phil Murphy took office and signed legislation expanding the list of medical conditions that make a person eligible for a medical marijuana card.
But this is the first time that Scutari or anyone intimately involved with cannabis law and public policy has said that the intent is to start selling this year. Insiders and industry experts have said the market would not be ready until sometime in 2021.
“My top priorities are to get it passed, and secondly, let’s get it passed quickly,” Scutari said. “It’s not like we didn’t know this was coming, so we already have a draft that we are continually working on. Right now we are working with co-sponsors and the governor’s office. We want to be able to get this thing passed quickly.”
“Finally, I think one of the most important things is to allow people to buy legal cannabis immediately,” Scutari said. “My hope is the medical dispensaries are going to get up to speed — if they are not already — to sell the adult, 21-and-over market right away.”
But Jeff Brown, assistant commissioner of the Department of Health who oversees the medical marijuana program, said logistical concerns remain.
“If it happened tomorrow, I don’t think we have an operator that would be ready to start selling adult use,” he said during a NJ Cannabis Insider webinar Tuesday that followed Scutari’s interview. “They still have a lot of work to do.”
Brown said the department has pushed operators to expand, and in 2018 moved to allow each to open two satellite dispensaries. Only three satellites have opened their doors so far.
And while some have expanded cultivation, others have struggled to do so.
“The industry as a whole would have

said Monday it would pay as much as $4 billion for U.S. biotech firm Asklepios BioPharmaceutical Inc. to strengthen the German company’s drugmaking arm, as Bayer continues to reel from its acquisition of crops giant Monsanto.
The latest deal—for which Bayer will pay $2 billion now and as much as a further $2 billion based on future success milestones—is a bet on cutting-edge gene therapy, in which a functional gene is inserted to counter the effects of a disease caused by a missing or faulty gene.
The German company’s biggest pharmaceutical acquisition since its purchase of domestic rival Schering AG in 2006 is also an attempt to tackle one of a series of challenges that has been plaguing the inventor of aspirin, especially since its 2018 acquisition of U.S.-based Monsanto.
The $63 billion Monsanto deal was meant to give the company another big, fast-growing revenue stream besides pharmaceuticals. Instead, it has saddled Bayer with a protracted legal battle over whether Monsanto’s Roundup weedkillers cause cancer—a dispute that has pummeled Bayer’s share price. Bayer says Roundup is safe.
Then, last month, Bayer shocked investors with a warning that the coronavirus pandemic would hit its agriculture business harder than expected. Bayer has also faced setbacks in settling the Roundup lawsuits for $10.9 billion.
The profit warning cast more doubt on the rationale for the Monsanto deal and its ability to boost Bayer’s profit.
At the same time, Bayer’s drug pipeline has been worrying investors. Two of the company’s bestselling drugs—blood thinner Xarelto and eye treatment Eylea—will start to lose patent protection from around 2024.
Analysts have been concerned that Bayer doesn’t have enough promising new products in its research-and-development pipeline to make up for the expected drop in sales from the blockbusters’ patent losses.
To boost its pipeline, Bayer has been looking for drug-development partnerships or deals to license drugs that are in promising stages of clinical development.
Stefan Oelrich, chief executive of Bayer’s pharmaceutical branch, said the purchase of AskBio was slightly larger than the acquisitions Bayer had been seeking in the pharmaceutical space, but added that he was convinced after the first phone call with the U.S. company’s co-founders that it would be the “perfect fit.”
“What we now have is a comprehensive pipeline,” Mr. Oelrich said in an interview. “I feel like things are really coming together on the pharma side.”
Mr. Oelrich said it was too early to predict how much in sales the AskBio treatments are likely to generate, but added that he expects the deal to help Bayer build a leading position in gene therapy. That treatment area has been gaining momentum after setbacks occurred during the first testing in humans in the 1990s, when several patients died.
Dozens of gene therapies are now undergoing clinical trials and big drug companies have been acquiring gene-therapy firms, betting on the success of those treatments in the future.
AskBio was co-founded by Richard Jude Samulski, who pioneered the use of what are known
