The company is targeting adjusted earnings-per-share growth of 12% or more through 2020. It's planning to accomplish this goal in part by increasing sales of QuantiFERON-TB and by capturing at least 20% of the oncology benchtop sequencing market share for GeneReader NGS. Better buy I suspect that Qiagen might be able to deliver on its goals, which would likely push the stock higher. However, my vote between these two stocks goes to Opko. The 20% drop in Opko's value following the disappointing clinical results for hGH-CTP provides a good opportunity for a rebound. While there's definitely a risk that more bad news for the human growth hormone could weigh the stock down, I think the company has enough irons in the fire that something will serve as a positive catalyst this year to send shares higher. 10 stocks we like better than Opko Health When investing geniuses David and Tom Gardner have a stock tip, it can pay to listen.
