Two More Good Reasons to Buy Celgene Corporation (CELG)

Stock buyback
The other good news from Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) is that the company announced a $3 billion stock buyback. This comes on the heels of a previous repurchase of $2.5 billion of shares. Around $1.8 billion of that total was repurchased in 2013. Over the last four years, Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) has bought back $6.5 billion of its stock.

This new buyback represents around 6% of Celgene’s current market cap. Although the company’s trailing price-to-earnings multiple of 37 might seem high at first glance, I think Celgene is getting a reasonably good deal in buying its shares at current prices. The biotech should experience earnings growth of at least 20% per year over the next several years.

Looking ahead
Celgene continues to show tremendous momentum. The latest news about apremilast and the share buyback add to a solid list of reasons to buy the stock even after its huge run-up in 2013. Revlimid continues to experience strong growth. Abraxane and Pomalyst are picking up steam. I still rate this stock as a buy.
