Zomedica, Another Hot Name In Pet Care
Zomedica (NYSEAMERICAN:ZOM) is a development-stage diagnostic and pharmaceutical company with a focus on pets. That may seem odd but the pet care industry is worth upwards of $100 billion annually in the U.S. alone and growing at a mid-to-high-single-digit CAGR. Names like Chewy.com and Freshpet have seen their growth go off the charts and we expect the same for this company. Within the pet care industry, veterinarian and related services are the #2 category accounting for a third of all spending.

A recent uptick in billings and enrollment to the tune of 238% and 192% is the reason. The uptick suggests not only is the Chinese economy coming back but demand for English suggests optimism for renewed trade with the U.S. now that a China-friendly administration is in place. Regardless, with enrollment and billings on the rise the outlook for revenue growth and positive EBITDA is vastly improved.
