Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Monday saw a solid start to the week for the stock market, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average posted a triple-digit gain and the Nasdaq Composite managed to rise more than 1%.

Meanwhile, though, consolidation is taking hold in several key sectors of the economy, and many companies are seeing their share prices move dramatically in response to potential deals. Ultimate Software Group (NASDAQ:ULTI), Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON), and Ellie Mae (NYSE:ELLI) were among the top performers today. Here’s why they did so well.

But as with so many things involving social media, the parties in the conversation were probably talking past each other and not really listening.

    Gramercy Property Trust stock soared 15.5% in the wake of the real estate investment trust (REIT) getting a buyout bid from a would-be acquirer. A fund run by institutional investment giant Blackstone Group (NYSE:BX) announced that it would pay $27.50 per share in cash for Gramercy, putting the total value of the company at $7.6 billion. Coming on the heels of another deal in the sector, those following REITs are pleased to see buying interest even in the face of rising interest rates, which would ordinarily depress valuations. If all goes well, Blackstone hopes to close on the Gramercy deal sometime during the second half of the year.

    Sanchez Energy’s stock has continued to run higher in 2017 and is up nearly 50% since the start of the year.

    SeaWorld Entertainment (SEAS) is probably the most famous example of a company that’s suffered from animal cruelty allegations. Shares of the theme park operator, backed by Blackstone (BX) , have never recovered from the release of the 2013 documentary Blackfish, which argued that orca captivity is inhumane and dangerous to the human trainers of the orcas. SeaWorld announced in March that it would phase out its orca captivity, breeding and live shows. The company’s remaining whales, most of which were born in captivity, will live out their lives at the parks. The news sent SeaWorld shares soaring 9%, but continued attendance drops forced the company to slash its dividend and invest $175 million in new attractions.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now: Old National Bancorp Capital Trust I(ONB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

     Old National Bancorp (ONB) is a 181-year-old financial institution with 195 branches, mainly in the Midwest. The stock, which is still down by about one-third from its prerecession high, trades at just 13 times projected 2016 earnings and yields an attractive 3.4%. If interest rates ever rise, the bank should benefit from a widening spread between its cost of funds and the interest rates borrowers pay.

    It’s a favorite of David Dreman, author of the classic 1980 book Contrarian Investment Strategy. His philosophy: “We believe that the markets are not perfectly efficient.” Some stocks, in other words, are judged by the market to be cheaper than their actual worth.

After struggling through deregulation, high oil prices, and a lengthy recession, airline stocks have rebounded in synchronization with the US stock market, with better global economies, and generally as a leading US economic indicator.

The price of wine is going up.

Global wine production slumped to its lowest level in 60 years in 2017, according to data from the International Organisation of Vine and Wine.

The most recent harvest produced 25 billion liters of wine, a decrease from 26.7 billion in 2016 and 27.6 billion in 2015. The decline was driven by weak harvests in key markets including Europe and South Africa.

The shortage has caused the wholesale price of basic wine in Italy to skyrocket 74% over the previous year, according to the European Commission. Prices are up 45% in Spain and over 10% in France.

Analysts said that producers, dealers and retailers will absorb some of the price hikes, but consumers will end up paying more — especially for cheaper bottles.

“The wine companies that are targeting very low prices … will be hit the worst, because their margins are very low,” said Stephen Rannekleiv, a global beverages strategist at Rabobank. “When prices go up, it puts a lot of strain on them.”

Best Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now: Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical Inc.(RARE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Johanna Bennett]

    Nothing guts a drug stock like bad clinical trial data. Shares of Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical (RARE) fell as much as 10% after a seizure medication failed in a phase II study.

    Trading at a recent $72.22, the shares were down 7.7% after earlier falling as much as 10% to $70.51

    The seizure drug UX007 was tested as a treatment for glucose transporter type-1 deficiency syndromeor Glut1 DSamong a small group of patients. Data released Wednesday showed that it only cut the rate of seizures in the drug arm by 13.4% compared to the placebo arm, falling short of statistical significance.

    Investigators, though, teased out a clinically — though not statistically — significant benefit for patients experiencing what are called absence seizures. Ultragenyx now intends to focus on that in a Phase III pivotal trial.

    Leerik analyst Joseph Schwartz called the selloff a buying opportunity.

    We had been cautious on this asset (and its two programs – G1DS and long-chain fatty acid oxidation disorder/LC-FAOD; LINK) – but believe the selling pressure after mkt. presents a buying opportunity ahead of a more de-risked X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH) Ph.3 data in 1H17.

    Cowen analyst Eric Schmidt remained convinced of RAREs long-term prospects thanks to a diversified orphan disease pipeline. And analysts at Credit Suisse see more catalysts ahead in 2017.

    We are buyers on a pullback and we like RAREs setup for the remainder of 2017…Remaining 2017 catalysts keep us buyers on a pullback: We see Q2:17 KRN23 ph3 adult XLH data, H1:17 rhGUS FDA/EMA submission, potential KRN23 CHMP decision in mid-17 (based on late-2016 EMA submission/validation), H2:17 Ace-ER ph3 GNEM data, and potential KRN23 FDA submission in late-17/early-18 as upcoming catalysts worth owning for.
