    The argument for investing in Intrexon Corp (NYSE:XON) has taken some turns over the past few years. There’s the “buy it because it’s a gene therapy company” argument, the “buy it because it’s tackling mosquito-borne illnesses” argument, the “buy it because it’s a biofuels pioneer” argument, and now there’s the “buy it because it’s reimagining marijuana production” argument.

    Friday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, with major market benchmarks finishing narrowly mixed for the session. Weekly gains were still substantial for the indexes, however, as investors grew confident that the economy is walking the fine line between avoiding a recession and growing so fast that it spurs the Federal Reserve to tighten monetary policy aggressively. Yet even though most stocks held up well, some individual companies had bad news that sent their shares lower. Ultra Petroleum (NASDAQ:UPL), Intrexon (NYSE:XON), and News Corp. (NASDAQ:NWSA) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Shares of specialty materials manufacturer Allegheny Technologies (NYSE:ATI) lost nearly three-quarters of their value in the second half of 2015 as the company initiated what would be a difficult restructuring. But it is growing apparent that the turnaround program had the desired effect, as Allegheny on April 24 delivered quarterly results that blew past expectations.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    The Allegheny Technologies (NYSE:ATI) that existed three years ago was bloated with debt, overly dependent on low-efficiency commodity-driven business, and not taking full advantage of the opportunities within its industry or the expertise on its payroll. The Allegheny Technologies that exists today is none of those things — and all for the better.

Best Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2019

It’s not so easy to size up Walmart (NYSE:WMT) these days. For decades, the retailer’s strategy was as reliable as the sunrise: Open up hundreds of supercenters every year, keep costs low, and offer customers “everyday low prices.”

For a long time, that strategy drove consistent profit growth and propelled the big-box chain to retail dominance, but like many things in business, it worked until it didn’t. The rise of Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and e-commerce disrupted Walmart’s leadership and undermined the strength of both its pricing strategy and brick-and-mortar expansion.

Under CEO Doug McMillon, who took the helm in 2014, Walmart has reinvented itself. The retailer has essentially stopped opening new stores, instead investing that capital into paying employees better, providing more training, cleaning up stores, and eliminating out-of-stockages — all in an effort to improve the in-store experience. The company has also aggressively pivoted to e-commerce, quickly adding grocery pickup stations at its stores, expecting to have more than 2,000 of them by the end of this year. It boosted its exposure to e-commerce by acquiring Jet.com for $3.3 billion and followed that up with smaller e-commerce acquisitions like Bonobos and Modcloth.
