The U.K. doesn’t yet know what Brexit means, what economic impact it will have or how to execute it.

These are the big takeaways from a week of turmoil that prevented Prime Minister Theresa May from unlocking the second phase of Brexit talks about the future terms of trade between the U.K. and the European Union.

Negotiations continue, but time is tight: Britain will crash out of the EU if no deal is agreed by March 2019, an outcome that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce warned Wednesday would be “devastating.”

Businesses are preparing to move jobs and investment out of the U.K. in early 2018 if trade talks haven’t started.

Nervous investors have pushed the pound down against the dollar this week.

Here’s why:

1. Britain doesn’t know what Brexit means

The biggest question Britain must answer is what kind of relationship it wants with the EU, its biggest export market, once it has left.

May has made clear that the U.K. will leave the EU’s internal market and customs union. But beyond those red lines, little has been settled.

investing forum: FMC Technologies, Inc.(FTI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Following a series of M&A announcements in the oilfield-services sector since the onset of the oil market downturn, French oil-field service company Technip and U.S. oilfield equipment company FMC Technologies (NYSE:FTI) hooked up in an all-stock deal valuing the combined company at $13 billion. Shareholders of each company will own 50% of the combined entity, to be named TechnipFMC, which implies a roughly $6.5 billion acquisition valuation for each entity. The transaction, which should close early next year, will “combine Technip’s innovative systems and solutions, state-of-the-art assets, engineering strengths, and project management capabilities with FMC Technologies’ leading technology, manufacturing, and service capabilities.” Further, it should save $400 million in annual costs by 2019. Moreover, it will enable the combined company to compete better against larger oil-field service rivals Baker Hughes (NYSE:BHI), Halliburton (NYSE:HAL), and Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB), which have all gained strength during the downturn either through M&A activities or cost savings initiatives.

investing forum: Galapagos NV(GLPG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By David Zeiler]

    Bill Patalon’s initial stock pick was Galapagos NV (Nasdaq ADR: GLPG), a Belgian biotech company.

    Patalon was attracted to Galapagos’ strategy to target “orphan diseases,” afflictions that strike rarely and so often go ignored by the Big Pharma companies. He also liked that Galapagos had more than 50 drug discovery programs underway, and that it already had licensing agreements with several bigger players in the industry.

  • [By Stephen Mack]

    Galapagos NV (Nasdaq: GLPG) is our big winner so far, gaining 578.8% since Money Morning Executive Editor Bill Patalon shared his recommendation with Money Morning readers in April 2012. The S&P 500 has gained 75.4% in the same time. Bill has renewed his recommendation for the Belgian biotech several times over the years, saying in 2016 that it has “an established history of piling on gains.” With an average gain of 110% a year, it’s hard to argue with that.

ESports are making a name, and a market for themselves, and SPYR, INC (OTCQB:SPYR), is making a strategic play to capture its share of the growing industry.

The Denver based holding company that through its wholly owned subsidiary SPYR APPS, LLC, develops and publishes mobile application and eSports, recently announced plans to spin off company’s restaurant division, Eat at Joe’s庐 as a separate publicly traded company. SPYR, INC (OTCQB:SPYR) announced that it will give all of its shareholders of record as of May 19, 2017, a dividend in the form of shares in what is to become a new and separate publicly traded company. SPYR will issue each of its shareholders an equal number of shares (1 for 1) in a new spin-off company, which SPYR is creating in order to divest itself from its restaurant division.

wall street dow jones: SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (WNDW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB:WNDW) is another third-party currently engaged in research and development to incorporate one of GLW’s glass products in an innovative manner. WNDW, a leading developer of transparent electricity-generating coatings for glass windows and flexible veneers, announced its plan to develop electricity-generating flexible glass. In particular, WNDW’s scientists and engineers recently applied layers of its liquid coatings onto GLW’s Willow Glass and laminated them under conditions that simulate the high pressure and temperatures of the manufacturing processes used by commercial glass and window producers. The result was a bendable glass “veneer” which generates electricity. WNDW anticipates installing these sheets of electricity-generating glass veneers over existing office tower windows, turning buildings into vertical power generators and helping decrease their carbon footprint. The company also believes that such veneers could be applied to flat and curved surfaces on automobiles, trucks, buses, airplanes, and boats to generate onboard electrical power. WNDW’s veneer products are being developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory in an effort to commercialize WNDW’s products. While we saw no specific timeline for when WNDW would offer its products incorporating Willow Glass, we are once again excited by this innovative use of a GLW product.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brian Orelli]

    Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALNY) jumped as much as 14.5% today after announcing earnings after the bell yesterday. As a development-stage biotech, it wasn’t the revenue or the earnings that caused the spike, but the progression of Allnylam’s pipeline.

    Yesterday, after markets closed, it was announced that US Federal District Court Judge Sue Robinson ruled to issue a permanent injunction against Praluent, the PCSK9 mAb for hypercholesterolemia from partners Regeneron and Sanofi, due to infringement of patents from Amgen. The court has imposed a 30-day suspension (stay) on the injunction to allow for settlement or appeal of the District Court decision. Sanofi and Regeneron have announced their intent to appeal the ruling to the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC). The injunction decision is consistent with our counter-consensus published views communicated on 25 January 2016 (“Downgrade to Sell on evidence of likely infringement of Amgen’s PCSK9 patents”) and subsequently. Based on consultation with expert legal counsel, we now put >75% probability Amgen will prevail on appeal and/or Praluent is ultimately removed from the US market, and/or Amgen achieves a settlement substantially in its favor. We currently model $3.3 bn in non-risk-adjusted 2022E US revenues for Praluent, while consensus models $1.2 bn in 2022E US revenues. We reiterate our view from 25 January 2016 to preferentially own Amgen, The Medicines Company (MDCO) (Buy), and Alnylam (ALNY) (Buy) over Regeneron for exposure to PCSK9 inhibitor market dynamics as outcomes trials approach.

    As the term implies, a 15% trailing stop-loss “trails” the price of the stock. So as the price moves up, so should your stop-loss. Let’s look at Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT) as an example. On September 29, 2017, the stock closed at a new high of $52.09. That means the 15% trailing stop-loss would have been $44.28 (52.09 x .15 = 7.81; 52.09 – 7.81 = 44.28). Had the stock gone on to close below $44.28 we would have sold the next trading day.

Best High Tech Stocks For 2018

For millions of displaced refugees living in camps, the ability to survive and rebuild their lives often depends on transportation.

Without it, refugee families are unable to get to hospitals, send children to schools, go to local job centers, even shop for food and everyday necessities.

“Lack of transportation robs refugees of their dignity and ability to be self-sufficient,” said Gia Farooqi, co-founder of Roshni Rides.

Roshni Rides, a startup launched by four students at Rutgers Business School, studied the problem and created a solution: a rickshaw transportation network that works like a ride-sharing shuttle service.

The rickshaws take passengers on preset routes to important destinations like hospitals, schools and markets.

Roshni Rides,a ride-sharing rickshaw service for refugees won the $1 million Hult Prize startup contest.

Passengers pay using pre-loaded cards, similar to the New York City subway system, said Farooqi.

On January 12, Kevin Kelly of Recon Capital Partners suggested that traders should purchase a put spread in Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT). Since then the stock rallied and he lost the premium that he paid for the put spread.

Kelly is still bearish on the stock and he said on Bloomberg Markets that traders should take another shot at Caterpillar. He thinks that it would be a good idea to buy the August 70 put and sell the August 57.5 put for a net premium of $3.60.

The trade breaks even at $66.40 or 8.33 percent lower than the current price. If the stock drops 20 percent to $57.5, he can make the maximal profit of $8.90.

how to trade penny stocks: Unilever NV(UN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Teresa Rivas]

    Earlier this year, Unilever (UN) recently declined Kraft Heinz (KHC) merger bid. That means that if the company still wants to do a deal, Mondelez International (MDLZ) and PepsiCo (PEP) are the next logical partners, writes Susquehannas Pablo Zuanic.

    Getty Images

    Zuanic upgraded Pepsi from Neutral to Positive today and raised his price target from $118 to $132. He writes that a Pepsi deal would have more strategic merits, hence his upgrade (as he emphasizes that not much has changed in terms of fundamentals for the firm).

    More detail from his note:

    With investors apparently seeing MDLZ as the next likely KHC target, and Coca-Cola (KO) the next Anheuser-Busch (BUD) target, PEP shares have lost visibility and now trade at a 25% discount to KO on apples-to-apples comps. We see value here, on franchise strength, efforts to align the F&B portfolio with consumer health trends, and the growing optionality value of a joint KHC/BUD bid for PEP. We argue that, together, the Kendall Jenner commercial, the Aspartame to-be-or-not-to-be zigzagging, the new, new, new alt low-cal cola (Pepsi Zero sugar), the ongoing underperformance in U.S. CSDs (25% only of the company), the lack of scale in non-CSD NARTDs vs. KO (other than Gatorade), and now talk of PEP buying Brazilian dairy company Vigor S.A. (a JBS subsidiary that would better fit KHC or ULVR), all paint a picture of a company still struggling to set a new direction (with all due respect). In this regard, we think PEP may be more vulnerable than MDLZ to a KHC bid (jointly done with BUD). We also see greater strategic fit for KHC with PEP Food/Snacks (than with MDLZ), and argue that PEP Beverages fits BUD better than KO, as the PEP bottling operations in key regions (including NA) remain in the hands of PEP (KO, on the other hand will be fully refranchised by end of 2017). So we are upgrading PEP to Positive with a $132 price target by December 17. Yes, the Unilever rebuff
