Related CRR 15 Biggest Mid-Day Gainers For Monday 7 Biggest Price Target Changes For Monday

CARBO Ceramics Inc. (NYSE: CRR) shares are down 5.6 percent on Friday as traders are circulating a short thesis on the company that calls into question the Carbo’s aggressive cash burn ad guidance.

Cash Burn

CARBO reportedly burned $13 million in cash in the fourth quarter and expects its Q1 burn rate to be even higher. As of last quarter, the company had only $91 million in cash on its books.

CARBO has said it expects to be EBITDA-positive by the end of 2017. The core of CARBO’s business is ceramic proppant used by oil & gas drillers. However, according to the short chatter, while many drillers used to use 100 percent ceramic wells, they can now achieve the same results from raw sand at a fraction of the cost.

great investment stocks: First Majestic Silver Corp.(AG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    There is no denying that some silver stocks have a problem with the problem beingthe focus on silver. On Monday, some key silver stocks like First Majestic Silver Corp (NYSE: AG) along with solver benchmark the iShares Silver Trust ETF (NYSEARCA: SLV) saw sharper than normal selloffs on an otherwise short trading day. The problem for investors in First Majestic Silver Corp is that its probably the closest thing to a pure play silver stock out there as most other silver miners have long since made aneffort to diversify into gold and other preciousmetals in case silver prices fall off.

    We delved into Kraft Heinz’s (KHC) earnings beat, and explained the impact of Leucadia National’s (LUK) investment in National Beef on its earnings.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Leucadia National (NYSE:LUK) is a difficult business for many investors to understand. The combination of the Jefferies Group financial services company, the National Beef meat processing and supply company, and plenty of other smaller investments present a challenge for those seeking to know the ins and outs of what affects Leucadia’s results. In general, though, conditions in the financial industry have been more volatile than the rest of the business, and Jefferies, therefore, plays a bigger role in how the overall company does.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Then there were financial results released by Jefferies, a unit of Leucadia National (LUK). Its results are often seen as a harbinger for the big U.S. banks, and the results “appear mixed,” according to JMP analyst Devin Ryan. He explains:

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Rosevear]

    It’s official: General Motors (NYSE:GM) will sell its long-troubled Opel subsidiary to French automaker Peugeot S.A. (NASDAQOTH:PUGOY) for about $2.3 billion, in a deal expected to close later this year.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Now, the General is thinking about ditching Europe for good by selling its European operations to French automaker Peugeot (NASDAQOTH:PUGOY). As long as Peugeot is willing to pay a reasonable price, selling Opel is GM’s best course of action.

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Yes, you read that correct! General Motors (NYSE: GM) will probably not settle for just a new 52-week high and will aim to take out the 2013 peak of $41.85. With talks about the Opel sellout to PSA Group (OTCPK:PEUGF) (OTCPK:PUGOY) progressing at a rate much faster than I had anticipated, a (likely) deal announcement on Monday will pave the way for new all-time highs.

great investment stocks: Maximus, Inc.(MMS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    Analysts at Jefferies initiated coverage on business process services provider Maximus Inc. (MMS) late on Thursday, giving the stock a bullish rating because it has several competitive advantages and should benefit from the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

    The analysts rate MMS as “Buy” and see shares reaching $47. This price target suggests a 20% upside to the stock’s Thursday closing price of $39.14.

    “MMS is a leading government outsourced contractor that produces consistently strong results,” Jefferies analyst David Styblo commented. “The company has several competitive advantages and is highly focused on health and human service projects. This positions MMS to enjoy multi-year growth from the ACA and other opportunities with limited risk. The company’s predictable business model, solid balance sheet, and EPS visibility into FY2014 also support a Buy and $47 PT.”

    Maximus shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Friday. The stock is up 23.83% year-to-date.

    Maximus Inc (NYSE: MMS) holds just $16 million in long-term debt against $886 million in shareholder equity. Shares trade for 1.7 times sales for a discount of 26% on the industry average of 2.3 times sales.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2018

Amaya’s stock has been on a wild roller coaster ride this year, with catalysts ranging from the CEO (David Baazov) being accused of insider trading, to takeover rumors, to failed mergers and now a formal bid by the aforementioned CEO. There have certainly been a lot of hopes and headaches, but I believe there is a strong underlining long case to be made on Amaya. I wrote a blog post about it the day before it released its Q3 earnings, my basic argument was that it is intrinsically undervalued due to market overreaction on merger discussions and there was still the possibility of a buyout by the former CEO at a significant upside. It seemed like a win-win. Well, when the earnings were released, not only were the results impressive but Baazov launched a formal bid at C$24 per share (approximately US$18) or a 30% upside from the previous Friday’s Close. Whether this private takeover succeeds or not, this stock is poised for significant long term growth.

Amaya (NASDAQ:AYA) runs the world’s largest online gaming (casino) empire in the world. It runs many valuable brand names especially in the online poker business (PokerStars and Fulltilt) but is now increasingly moving into sports betting and other online casino games. It is also the fastest growing and most well positioned to take advantage of online gambling legalization as well as the inherent scalability of the internet. This is a company which has seen its revenues increase from below US$200M just a few years ago to over US$1.2 BILLION for the trailing twelve months. Reviewing its results and its future growth prospects, it will be clear that this firm is undervalued.

    Medtronic operates both in the therapeutic and diagnostic medical markets throughout the world; the company’s varied product lines face a vast combination of competitors, ranging from large manufacturers with multiple business lines (exemplified by Johnson & Johnson) to smaller manufacturers offering a limited selection of products, like Insulet (NASDAQ:PODD). Other notable competitors include Abbott Labs (NYSE:ABT), C.R. Bard (NYSE:BCR), Baxter (NYSE:BAX), LivaNova (NASDAQ:LIVN), Roche (OTCQX:RHHBY), DexCom (NASDAQ:DXCM) and Tandem (NASDAQ:TNDM).

    We expect a strong 2017 performance from Keytruda in NSCLC, though revenue and EPS estimates are now 2%-7% and 5%-12% below consensus between 2017E-20E. We also expect further pressure on Keytruda in 2018, driven by share losses in first-line non-small cell lung cancer to Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), AstraZeneca (AZN) and Roche (RHHBY) as well as an increasing overhang from the Januvia/ Janumet patent expiries as they loom ever closer. Merck screens poorly on many valuation metrics to us and we have downgraded the shares to Underperform.

BMY has a strong oncology pipeline that could work well with PFE or even Gilead (NASDAQ:GILD). GILD has an interest in oncology, and has plenty of cash for a buyout.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2018: Dermira, Inc.(DERM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Current market dynamics, particularly in the SMID biotech universe, provide a plethora of opportunities for the company to augment the breadth and depth its pipeline in its core therapeutic areas, including neurology, ophthalmology and dermatology, where innovation is rife and where consolidation of some of the smaller players in the space is likely, in our view. Stocks in our SMID coverage universe that could potentially constitute future acquisition targets forAllergan include Aclaris Therapeutics (ACRS) and Dermira (DERM) (both have mid- to late-stage dermatology assets in development). We note with interest the collaboration with Heptares announced yesterday evening for the development of several M1, M4 and dual M1/M4 agonists in development for a variety of neurological diseases, including Alzheimers disease. Notwithstanding this above, larger scale transactions of course cannot be ruled out, and we note todays market commentary (Fox Business) regarding the potential sale of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International’s (VRX) Bausch & Lomb unit. It is reasonable to assume thatAllergan could be a bidder for this asset, given the companys presence in ophthalmology, as well as CEO Brent Saunders familiarity with the asset (he was the CEO prior to its sale toValeant in 2013 for $8.7bn). At the time of its sale to Valeant, B&L was generating c.$3bn in revenues and growing at a double-digit rate. Current sales of the asset are unclear due to the reporting structure of Valeant, as well as concerns regarding the companys operating/ pricing strategy.
