52 Week Low/High: $1.19 to $5.83
Price to Sales: 64.2 (Biopharma Industry Avg. = 7.5)

Financings: Weak
Cure spent $1.4 million on drug development last year. This large amount is not uncommon for pharma companies to spend heavily on R&D. They’ll need a lot of cash to continue development as they now have six products in their pipeline and we don’t see where this cash will come from.

Risks: Neutral
The risks of investing in this company may be somewhat lower than many cannabis companies given their pharmaceutical focus. However, given the rapid changes affecting the cannabis industry in particular, no company can guarantee profitability.

Should You Invest in Cure Pharmaceutical Holding Corp?

Recommendation: Weak
Cure Pharma is in the business of developing drug candidates using their own delivery system of thin films and wafers. They currently have six products in various stages of drug delivery (both cannabinoid-based and non-cannabinoid based products). They may start to see revenue from sales of CureFilm Sleep products, which should be launching very soon. This is a good sign since they currently have no revenue.

Cure management is strong, which is a good sign since they have such a long pathway for revenue. They are currently spending more than they generate in revenue, which isn’t uncommon for pharma companies but will need to secure cash to fund R&D efforts for the coming years.

Will it’s stock price improve in the long term? Don’t bet on it in the near term.

Based on the most recent annual filings, Cure’s price to sales (P/S) is 64.2 which is high for most industries but at the same time not uncommon for this industry. Based on this ratio, Cure’s stock is quite risky, however, if you have a higher risk appetite then you can purchasing now.

The price to earnings ratio is used for measuring the company’s current share price relative to its per-share earnings. When P/E is high it suggests that investors are expecting higher earnings growth in the near future as compared to the companies with a lower Price to Earnings ratio. A low P/E can indicate either that a company may currently be undervalued or that the company is doing exceptionally well relative to its past trends. Cure’s price to earnings ratio was at -4.32.

Also interesting, and troublesome is their debt to capital ratio of 572. That is a lot of debt. Many pharma companies burn cash at very high rates until regulatory approval, which opens the doors for both revenue and large increases in their stock value. Cure may hit one of these home runs, but all six of the products are so far from generating revenue that this stock is a long term play at best.

For these reasons, we think Cure, at or near its current price of $2.34 a share (as of March 2020), is a wait and see opportunity.
