Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.

Tony Tribble, Invision/AP Forget about Bloomin’ Onions or boneless wings, for many consumers, the choice of where to dine often comes down to a different factor: which restaurant has the best booze. “Alcoholic beverages can be a key driver of traffic, differentiation, and loyalty,” said David Decker, president of Consumer Edge Insight. According to the firm, two factors that keep customers coming back are “selection” and “pricing.” Consumer Edge Insight recently surveyed restaurant customers to find out which casual-dining spots generated the most loyalty with their alcoholic beverages.

Defitelio the model for Sarepta to follow. Gentium was a publicly traded company in a similar situation several years back with a drug called defibrotide. A small data set in a highly fatal disease that primarily effects children led to a situation where doctors refused to consider placebo but the FDA/EMA could not approve based on the available data. FDA approved expanded access for the drug under a treatment IND with cost recovery and EMA took a similar approach. Gentium was cash flow positive for years (albeit marginally so) before getting acquired for $1B by Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ). Earlier this year, FDA approved defibrotide based on data generated under expanded access.
