Happy New Year

To say that 2020 has been an interesting year is like saying we live in the wacky world of diabetes. As 2020 comes to an end and we look forward to 2021 everyone here at Diabetic Investor is wishing all of us a Happy Healthy and Prosperous New Year. May 2021 be filed with lots of great stories with the greatest one of all being the end of COVID. Be...

Our Annual Christmas Gift List

Each year as we approach the Christmas holiday we typically come out with very special very unique gifts to the good people and companies in this wacky world of ours. Which is kind of ironic given the fact we don’t celebrate Christmas personally but let’s not digress just yet. This being 2020 the Year of COVID it just doesn’t seem appropriate to be snarky. Heaven knows we all could use...

Playing out as anticipated

Word is that Verily the life sciences unit of Google which contains Onduo has raised a whopping $700 million. First we are not shocked nor surprised at the amount given the current environment. Second this now sets up 2021 as what could be a pivotal ultra-competitive year in digital diabetes. A year when Teladoc will likely find out whether Livongo was really worth $18.5 Billion or whether they were sold...

Old Habits Die Hard

It’s that time of year when everyone looks ahead to the New Year and of course with the New Year comes a new set of predictions. Unsurprisingly digital health is getting lots of attention this year as everyone looks ahead. Also to the shock of no one most see nothing but sunshine when it comes to digital health.

A Glimpse

We continue to get questions about our upcoming special report The Convergence of Forces so we thought why not give everyone a glimpse a preview if you will of what will be in this report. First and foremost allow us to explain the title why a Convergence of Forces. Well to us its actually simple as there are times when varying forces come together which will forever change the direction...

It helps to have something to sell

Let’s get a few housekeeping items out of the way before we get into the gist of what we want to write about today. Just in case anyone missed it our first podcast The Wacky World of Diabetes has been published and is available for your listening pleasure on the web site. Unlike our posts the podcasts are FREE and can be listened to by anyone so feel free to...

The faint of heart need not apply

Given that Mom always said look for good out of a bad situation, one of the good things to come from COVID is the renewed belief in pharmaceutical companies. That instead of being money grubbing low life’s who care only about profits rather than people, they actually have some value in this world. Pfizer being the first to receive such praise with others to follow. Yes thanks to pharma one...

Limping to the finish

  2020 may be known for Covid, the Presidential election and a very bad Chicago Bears football team (sorry had to throw that in as losing to the Packers is one thing but the Lions geez) it will also be known for a pretty good year for diabetes related stocks. Dexcom, Tandem and Insulet the Three Amigos and almost pure diabetes plays are doing quite nicely. Novo Nordisk has done ok...

There’s a reason they are called Unicorns

After raising another $65 million Vitra has become the latest digital diabetes company to achieve a $1 billion valuation. This milestone reaching a valuation of $1 billion is commonly known as becoming a Unicorn. This additional $65 million brings the total raised by the company to over $230 million. Frankly we aren’t shocked as digital health continues to be the hottest area for funding. The reality here is this as...

Many have asked ….

Not sure if it’s our continued shameless self-promotion or people are just very curious, but we’ve been getting lots of questions about The Convergence of Forces – our upcoming special report. And before we go any further that really is a cool name almost sounds like the next installment in the Star Wars series. Sorry didn’t mean to get off track. Before we explain what this report is all about let’s...
