10 States Where the Millennials Are More Obese Than the Seniors

The $475,000 price tag on Novartis AG’s latest breakthrough cancer therapy came under fire from one of the biggest managers of drug costs in the United States, underscoring the challenges the Swiss drugmaker will face in promoting the potential blockbuster.

The cost of the leukemia treatment, called Kymriah, is “dramatically higher” than other such complex treatments, and the health care system isn’t ready to pay for it, Steve Miller, chief medical officer at Express Scripts Holding Co., said Thursday in a blog post on his company’s website. Gene therapies like Novartis’s are targeted at a small number of patients and typically used just once, meaning that drug companies have limited chances to recoup their investment.

“Therein lies the challenge,” Miller wrote. “We need a new payment model.”

Hot Performing Stocks To Watch For 2018: Just Hold Your Nose and Dive Into Under Armour Inc (UAA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    If Under Armour (UAA) , (UA) shareholders didn’t have bad luck, they wouldn’t have any luck at all. UAA shares are down around 30% year to date and more than 50% in the last 12 months. I thought these guys were supposed to be the next Nike (NKE) .

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Shares of Under Armour (UAA) have tumbled nearly 60% during the past 12 months as the once high-flying company slashed its expected growth rate. Under Armour is scheduled to report earnings tomorrow, however, and some investors are betting that the release will help turn things around for the company’s stock.

    Jeff Schear/Getty Images for Under Armour

    Don’t get your hopes up, write Canaccord Genuity analysts Camilo Lyon and Pallav Saini, who contend this won’t be the quarter Under Armour turns things around. They explain why:

    The trifecta of headwinds that plagued UA last year (overexposure to sporting goods, overexposure to NA, and overexposure to performance apparel) has not abated, in our opinion. While UA is working to diversify its channel mix as evidenced by its recent entry into Kohl’s (KSS) (and forthcoming entry into DSW (DSW) and Famous Footwear later this year), our checks suggest the apparel segmentation efforts have fallen short of expectations. In addition, we are concerned about the lackluster trends in footwear (and Curry) as it is a key element to the growth story. Specifically, we believe the combination of a lack of newness/differentiation in the Curry 3 coupled with too many releases too soon at a higher price point ($140) resulted in tepid Q1 sales. The latest Curry 3Zero release at $120 appears to be doing modestly better. We highly regard the brand and its long-term growth prospects; however, the product and geographic diversification occurring now will take time to yield results. As such, we remain cautious on UA heading into its 1Q17 report on Thursday, April 27 BMO.

    Shares of Under Armour have gained 1.3% to $19.78 at 3:06 p.m. today, while Kohl’s has climbed 1.4% to $39.92, and DSW has risen 1.3% to $21.14.

In its FY16 (Jan-16 end) 10K filing on 3/31,Urban Outfitters reported its 1Q17 (Jan-17 end) SSS are trending +LSD. We believe trends are at the low end of +LSD (likely +1%)and we estimate that the Feb+Mar period gets a +1-1.5pp lift from an extra day vs LY (Unlike most other specialty retailers that report 4-5-4 week quarters,Urban Outfitters is based on a true calendar monthso Leap Yr is incremental). On our math,Urban Outfitters’ underlying trend is likely close to flat in Feb+Mar. April should be a lower volume month in the qtr, but visibility into April trends for the industry is low. An Easter shift into March (vs Easter in April last year) is a headwind to Apriland April weather could be unfavorable YOY (based on comments from our 3/29 weather expert conference call).That said, based on our conversation with the company we believe that compares should ease in the back half of April, which could offset other headwinds.

Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE:DKS) and Big 5 Sporting Goods (NASDAQ:BGFV) have both had a great 2016. As far as stock performance goes, Big 5 is the winner this year. But which company is in better shape for the new year?

Data source: YCharts..

Riding a wave of positive news

Both companies have benefited during the pastyear from a couple of positive developments. First up, the now ironically named Sports Authority went out of business. The former competitor entered bankruptcy anticipating reemerging a stronger business. That didn’t happen, and no savior stepped in to rescue the failed retailer. A fire sale ensued, and the company’s stores shut down, leaving remaining sports merchandisers to pick up the pieces.

In addition to that development, consumer spending on sporting goods rose during the year. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, sales of sports merchandise rose 3.7% over 2015 through the end of November. Those two factors contributed to both companies, posting positive sales growth even as brick-and-mortar retail, in general, struggled this year.

    MGM Resorts International (MGM) always had two things going for it: It’s large Las Vegas footprint to counter the weakness in Macau, and it’s real-estate, which it spun off into MGM Growth Properties (MGP). But when MGM reported weaker than expected earnings this morning, it wasn’t a good sign that Las Vegas was disappointing. Wells Fargo’sCameron McKnight explains:

    Q4 Las Vegas EBITDA of $365mm was 10% ($40MM) below the Street. Las Vegas 4Q RevPAR growth of +3% was in-line with guidance, but below our expectations and industry data. For the 1Q17, MGM provided RevPAR guidance of 7%, a point or two below our expectations. We estimate revenue growth per visitor was +1.5% yr/yr. RevPOR (other revenue per occupied room) growth was +1.5%. We estimate expenses were +1% yr/yr. We expect the stock to be trade down on this morning’s release. While forward guidance was tepid, MGM missed Las Vegas expectations.

    Shares of MGM Resorts International have tumbled 7.3% to $27.45 at 11:37 a.m. today, while MGM Resorts Properties has declined 0.3% to $25.58.

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2018: Staples, Inc.(SPLS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    A few years ago, office-supplies retailerStaples(NASDAQ:SPLS)and electronics store RadioShack thought they could benefit from the e-tailer’s sales prowess. Although they were losing sales regularly to Amazon, they thoughtplacing lockersin their stores could also result in the sale of an extra ream of paper or a few capacitors and potentiometers. Instead what they found was customers were simply buying their paper, ink cartridges, and electronic gadgets on Amazon and picking them up in their stores. After just a year, Staples and RadioShack abruptly ended the program.

The company not only manufactures its own 3D printers, but also offers materials and related services.

    Staples (SPLS) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today on reports that the office-supplies retailer was considering selling itself.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Staples gained 9.8% to $9.51 today, while the S&P 500 ticked up 0.1% to 2,360.16.

    CFRA’s Efraim Levy doesn’t see a “natural buyer” for Staples but remain Buy rated anyway:

    Shares are higher on an unconfirmed WSJ report that SPLS is looking at the possible sale of the company. Our fundamentally valued 12-month target of $11, applies a below historical average P/E of 12.1X our FY 18 EPS estimate, given office industry challenges. Our target has 11% upside, plus a 5.5% yield. We don’t see a natural buyer for a large physical store office supply presence, although an activist/private-equity buyer is a possibility. To make an acquisition worthwhile, a buyer would have to be more aggressive in cost cutting and use of cash flow than SPLS’s existing plan.

    Staples’ market capitalization rose to $6.2 billion today from $5.7 billion yesterday. It reported a net loss of $459 million on sales of $18.2 billion in fiscal 2017.
