Top Biotech Stocks To Buy For 2019

The owner of the Los Angeles Times is in talks to sell the paper to a local biotech billionaire, the latest twist in a chaotic few months for the nation’s largest metro newspaper, sources familiar with the matter told CNNMoney.

Michael Ferro, who controls the paper’s parent company Tronc, is negotiating with Patrick Soon-Shiong, a Tronc investor and physician who has been dubbed “the world’s richest doctor.”

The deal, if reached, could see Soon-Shiong buying both the Los Angeles Times and the San Diego Union-Tribune for roughly $500 million plus pension liabilities, according to one source with knowledge of the matter.

The $500 million price tag would put the two papers at twice the price of the Washington Post when Amazon founder Jeff Bezos bought it in 2013 — a valuation that is likely to mystify industry observers.

News of a possible deal was first reported by the Washington Post. NPR and the Los Angeles Times itself have also reported on the talks.

    Praxair (NYSE:PX) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Praxair is expected to gain from strong backlog, new order wins and recovery in the energy and industrial end markets. Notably, Praxair’s pending merger with Linde has received conditional EU antitrust approval, antitrust clearance in China and India. Praxair and Linde also agreed to sell additional assets to a consortium of Messer Group GmbH and CVC Capital Partners in order to obtain the U.S. antitrust approval.  The companies continue to work diligently to close the merger in second-half 2018. The stock has also outperformed its industry over the past year. However, its results will be hurt by weaker volumes and political uncertainties prevalent in Brazil and currency headwinds. Further, inflation and rising freight and logistics costs will hurt margins. Praxair’s stretched valuation is also a concern.”

Hot China Stocks To Watch Right Now

The U.S. has a new bargaining chip on the table when it comes to Iranian sanctions: Shale.

In 2012, American oil stayed on American shores, giving the U.S. less leverage to compel powerhouse oil-consuming countries like India and China to sanction Iran. That was then, this is now. The crude export ban is lifted, and “the U.S. is as large of an exporter as Iran — 2.5 million barrels a day,” Jeff Currie, Goldman Sachs Group Inc’s global head of commodities, said Thursday in an interview with Bloomberg TV.

“That now gives them a bargaining chip — saying — ‘Hey, if you don’t comply, we can take away those barrels,’” he said. “It is a way to enforce compliance on refiners around the world.”

Sanctions on Iran will reduce the Islamic Republic’s ability to produce and export, but the lost oil supply will be supplanted by allies of the U.S., like Saudi Arabia, Currie said. While there is “a lot of geopolitical stuff going on,” the current oil rally is underpinned by real demand, not the headlines, he said.

Hot China Stocks To Watch Right Now: Energy Transfer Equity, L.P.(ETE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One reason investors are worried that Energy Transfer might need to reduce its distribution is that the company barely generates enough cash flow to support it without the help of its parent Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE). In 2017, Energy Transfer Partners produced $4.19 billion in distributable cash flow and would have paid out $4.15 billion to investors if it wasn’t for the fact that Energy Transfer Equity relinquished its rights to $656 million of that cash. While that support boosted the distribution coverage ratio from a tight 1.0 times to a more comfortable 1.2 times, it was only a temporary fix since Energy Transfer Equity’s support will diminish significantly in 2018 before declining further in 2019 and 2020.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Like last quarter, Energy Transfer Partners delivered strong earnings and cash flow growth. Because of that, the company was able to cover its jaw-dropping 12.4%-yielding distribution by a healthy 1.15 times. That slight decline from the year-ago quarter was caused by parent companyEnergy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE)significantly reducing its support. For a better comparison, the coverage ratio would have still been a solid 1.1 in this year’s first quarter without any assistance from Energy Transfer Equity, while it would have been a worrisome 0.98 in the year-ago period without the parent company’s help. That improvement isexactly what investors wanted to see this quarter.

Despite being an illegal drug at the federal level, marijuana’s momentum seemingly can’t be corralled. Just last year alone, five new states legalized medical cannabis, bringing the total number of states to have done so to 28, while the number of recreational weed states doubled to eight from four. In fact, Arizona was the only state to have a pot proposition lose in the polls, otherwise it would have been a “green sweep” for cannabis in the November elections.

Why marijuana has been unstoppable

In many respects the momentum behind marijuana stems from the rapidly improving public opinion of the substance, as well as the growing dollar figures swirling around the legal side of the industry.

In 1995, the year before California became the first state to pass a compassionate use medical cannabis law, just 25% of respondents in Gallup’s national poll wanted to see marijuana legalized across the country. In 2016, favorability toward the idea of legalizing weed hit an all-time high of 60% in Gallup’s poll. An even more recent survey from the independent Quinnipiac University found that nationwide support for legalizing medical cannabis stood at a blistering 93%!
