Mizuho’s Betty Chen and Alex Pham run the math on a possible acquisition price:

When we examined historical transactions in the specialty retail sector, we noticed a wide range of valuations.

    General Motors (NYSE:GM) has proven its global retail prowess, and nowhere is that more evident than in the world’s largest automotive market: China. General Motors was early to seize the Chinese market, compared to crosstown rivals such as Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F)and Fiat Chrysler, and its results in March were again solid. Let’s take a look at last month’s highlights and what recent trade tensions between the U.S. and China could mean for GM and its investors.

    Cadillac’s results in the United States are so horrible that it cost the luxury brand’s longtime President Johan de Nysschen his job. Since the brand has little cachet in America and its ability to compete with the successful luxury brands is so weak, the General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) unit’s only solution short term is to slash prices.

    Late last month, General Motors (NYSE:GM) reported solid first-quarter earnings.

    The Bad

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Friday was a poor day on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell 200 points and other major benchmarks lost about 1%. Rising bond yields were a major source of consternation among those following the financial markets, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 2.95% and helping to send mortgage rates sharply higher. Even though earnings season has gone fairly well for many companies, some investors are also starting to realize that political issues are likely to cloud the outlook for the U.S. economy in the coming months, creating more uncertainty that could stymie further market gains. Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood. Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK), ManpowerGroup (NYSE:MAN), and Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    It may not be obvious, but commission-free trades are more than just a marketing tool for discount brokers; they’re also a way to make money. Charles Schwab(NYSE:SCHW) charges asset managers a fee to make their ETFs and mutual funds commission free, collecting about $0.19 in annual fees for every $100 its clients invest in other companies’ ETFs and mutual funds. Last year, Schwab generated more income ($957 million) from offering such funds to its clients than it earned in commissions ($600 million) on trades its clients actually paid for!

Top Low Price Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Citigroup’s Alastair Syme and team argue that the earnings from big oil companies like Chevron (CVX), Total (TOT) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) will be bad…real bad. But that won’t stop the stocks from outperforming. They explain why:

Bloomberg News

Negative headlines, positive performance: We expect the majority of Big Oil companies to post negative 1Q16 earnings, a brutal headline, but one that clearly reflects the impact of cyclical oil price lows this quarter. The outlook can improve. Our positive thesis on the Big Oil group reflects a belief that the market still only discounts modest oil recovery we think c. $40/bbl is imbedded in valuations and a view that the group can drive self-help gains to boost profitability even in a low price environment. Signs of this self-help should be evident in 1Q operating performance: we expect to see the delivery of top-line growth (taking market share versus broader industry) and a continued reduction in operating costs, building on substantial cost-cutting through 2015.

Best Companies To Own For 2016

Guggenheim’s Louise Chen and team argue that oral Relistor, which helps relieve constipation caused by the use of opioids, could be a $1 billion opportunity for Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (VRX):

REUTERS

After meeting with the senior management team of Progenics (PGNX) , Valeant’s partner for oral Relistor, we continue to think that this drug would be a good addition to Valeant’s GI (gastrointestinal) franchise. The PDUFA date for oral Relistor is 7/19/16. AlthoughValeant is leading interactions with the FDA, Progenics is highly confident regarding an approval in July based on its discussions with Valeant. Progenics believes that oral Relistor could be a $1B+ opportunity for Valeant, even with the recent decrease in opioid usage. For context, we estimate ’16 sales of $9.9B for Valeant. An approval for oral Relistor would also help remind the Street that Valeant’s brand drug pipeline is underappreciated, in our view. We think pipeline advancements for brand drugs could drive multiple expansion forValeant shares (on P/E).
