Shares of Wynn Resorts dropped 11% to$90.72 today, while the S&P 500 gained 0.2% to 2,246.19.

My colleague Dimitra DeFotis, who runs Barron’s Emerging Markets Daily, explains what happened:

The move is another in a series to tackle the flight of illicit Chinese cash via casinos. According to a South China Morning Post story, Macaus monetary authority is halving the cash withdrawals allowed for holders of China UnionPay bank cards, effective Saturday. Billions of yuan reportedly have disappeared from the mainland, despite government currency restrictions on card purchases of gambling chips.

Wynn wasn’t the only Macau casino operator that took it on the chin today. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) tumbled 13% to $54.67, while Melco Crown Entertainment (MPEL) plunged 14% to $16.87, and MGM Resorts International (MGM) dropped 4.3% to $28.65.

    BP plc (ADR) (NYSE: BP), Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) (NYSE: RDS-A) (NYSE: RDS-B) and Statoil ASA(ADR) (NYSE: STO) are expected to outperform their peers by offering: 1) the greatest rate of change in cost reduction through technology and innovation, 2) upstream portfolios with an attractive risk to reward profile and 3) sufficient liquidity to invest in future growth.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    We believe that the equity market has neutralised much of its underweight energy positioning in 4Q/1Q, but was caught by the sharp rally in crude from end-January. Our base-case sees oil prices still higher by end-2016 (we see >$50/bbl), albeit with a choppy 2Q likely ahead. In this scenario a modest, rather than fully-fledged price-recovery we continue to place a lot of importance on self-help in driving ROE expansion (as opposed to relying simply on oil-leverage). Value-adjusted, we like the self-help stories around Total, Chevron, Statoil (STO), Royal Dutch Shell and Eni (E) in the group. Total is on the Citi European Focus list.

    Should oil prices recover, we believe that deepwater drilling activity growth should lag growth in US shale activity, as project economics is generally better in US shales, and E&Ps involved in US shales are generally quicker to react. Deepwater activity is largely comprises a handful of companies (Petrobras (PBR), Statoil (STO), Total (TOT), Shell (RDS.A), BP (BP), ONGC, ExxonMobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX)) and it is unlikely that these companies can meaningfully increase their rig demand in a short period of time to absorb the current oversupply. Thus, should oil prices rise in 2018, rig demand may increase, but likely not enough to tighten the market, given that supply equaling 43% of current working rig count is stacked and new supply equaling 25% of working rig count is under-construction and should be entering the market in the coming years. As a result, while we expect some improvement in rig utilization owing to rig retirements, it will unlikely be strong enough to meaningfully improve rates in 2018 above spot levels. Any demand increase in the interim could slow rig retirements materially, and be self-defeating. We thus are Sell rated on Transocean, Atwood and Noble.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: Ono Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (OPHLF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Merck could achieve a consistent advantage versus BMS in treatment of 1L NSCLC. There is a precise crossroad that will determine the future of these two companies in this field: the question of whether or not Keytruda will be approved in May. Both the market and investors believe that it will indeed gain approval and BMS’s stock is already paying for that. In the short term, the repercussions will be the contractions in the sales of Opdivo in 2L and a bigger obstacle for Opdivo+Yervoy in 1L. But the BMS’s combo can catch up, thanks to a bigger efficacy, as I will explain in a future article. Meanwhile, a recent trial established that Merck has to pay BMS $625M plus royalties, as it infringed BMS’s intellectual property related to the use of anti-PD1 antibodies. The royalties will be 6.5% for sales between January 2017 and the end of 2023, followed by a 2.5% rate for the period from January 2024 to the end of 2026. Bristol-Myers Squibb will share the money by giving a quarter of the amount to the Japanese Ono Pharmaceutical (OTC:OPHLF), the company which had discovered Opdivo.

    Edwards Lifesciences (EW) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today after the medical-device company beat earnings and revenue forecasts, and raised its full-year guidance.

    Edwards Lifesciencesgained 11% to 109.33, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.1% to 2,387.45.

    Mogran Stanley’s David Lewis andScott Wang contend that that Edwards Lifesciences is “back on track.” They explain:

    US sequential acceleration returns to the prior curve and debunks the bear case. Sequential growth in US [transcatheter aortic valve replacement, or TAVR,] in 1Q17 was ~12%, more in line with the ~13.5% average growth rate seen in the five quarters leading up to 3Q16. It’s hard to pinpoint the drivers, but we see several dynamics, including: (i) underlying device utilization thus far in 1Q, (ii) faster ramp at new hospitals where one additional TAVR per center is worth $15mn (~65% of the US upside we saw this quarter), and (iii) less acute competitive pressure from Medtronic (MDT) on larger valve sizes. SURTAVI likely played a limited role but management did not rule it out. Guidance implies a more conservative q/q US growth of ~3% for the rest of the year vs the ~12% this quarter, but underlying strength in the quarter is a material shift in US growth and intermediate penetration. As we stated in our preview, we favored the risk reward into the quarter given achievable expectations and the >20 point lag vs Intuitive YTD and would expect significant recovery tomorrow. Momentum likely continues into 2Q17 as signs of improving intermediate risk penetration provide important offsets to increased competition from Boston in early-2018 before mitral takes hold.

    Edwards Lifesciences’ market capitalization rose to $23.1 billion today from $20.9 billion yesterday.

    Shares of Edwards Lifesciences (EW) jumped to the top of the S&P 500 today after the medical-device maker offered its 2017 guidance this morning at its investor day.

    Shares of Edwards Lifesciences gained 6.7% to $89.31 today, while the S&P 500 rose 0.2% to 2,246.19.

    Wells Fargo’sLarry Biegelsen offers his take on Edwards Lifesciences’ guidance:

    Edwards Lifesciences Corporation (EW-$83.73; Outperform) provided its 2017 outlook this morning (12/8) ahead of its investor meeting today. As expected, the company highlighted its robust pipeline which should drive strong growth for years to come. However, the company now expects Q4 16 revenue to come in at the low end of the guidance range due to currency and weakness in surgical heart valves. The 2017 guidance was generally strong on the top and bottom line, with both bracketing consensus.

    For 2017, EW expects sales of $3.0-3.4B and 10-14% underlying growth. This compares to consensus of $3.3B and 12.3% underlying growth (were at 12.6%)… For 2017 EPS, EW expects $3.30-3.45 which includes $0.10 dilution from the Valtech deal (something we highlighted in our preview) and $0.08-0.10 benefit from the accounting change for stock based compensation. Backing these two items out implies guidance of about $3.30-3.45 which compares to consensus of $3.40 and our estimate of $3.41…

    As expected, the pipeline updates were highly positive. While the initial reaction to the Q4 guidance will likely be negative, we are highly confident that the strong 2017 guidance and robust pipeline update will be the main takeaways from the meeting today.

    No negativity here: Edwards Lifesciences’ market capitalization rose to $19.1 billion today from $17.9 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $495 million on sales of $2.5 billion in 2015.

    Friday was a good day on Wall Street, as the stock market responded favorably to encouraging news on the employment front. The U.S. unemployment rate dropped on fairly strong job creation during the month of February, and that helped push the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq Composite to modest gains of roughly between a quarter percent and a half percent. Yet even with a positive mood among market participants, some stocks weren’t able to participate in the end-of-week rally. Finisar (NASDAQ:FNSR), Zumiez (NASDAQ:ZUMZ), and Winnebago Industries (NYSE:WGO) were among the worst performers on the day.

With six catalysts driving the gold price forecast, the yellow metal should easily eclipse its all-time high of $1,895 within the next few years.

That’s a 53% gain from the current gold price of $1,236 an ounce.

While one or two strong catalysts can be enough to drive an investment higher, multiple catalysts increase the likelihood of truly monster gains.

“The more catalysts you have, the bigger bang for the buck,” said Money Morning Executive Editor William Patalon, III.

Patalon, who writes often about gold investing in his Private Briefing newsletter, says we’re witnessing an unusual confluence of no less than six gold price catalysts right now.

Gold Price Forecast Catalyst No. 1: Global Threats Increasing

While global turmoil never recedes completely, threats to world peace have been on the rise lately. Conflict breeds uncertainty in the markets, which historically has pushed gold prices higher.

Russia, under President Vladimir Putin, has shown a willingness to challenge the world’s democracies any way it can, from its annexation of the Crimean peninsula in 2014 to its alliance with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to its attempts to influence last year’s U.S. elections.

    Companies in the oil storage business can take advantage of what is known as contango, which is when forward prices are higher than current prices, allowing the purchase of cheap oil to be stored and sold at a later date while securing income using derivatives.

Stocks. Mutual funds. Cattle?When it comes to investing in individual retirement accounts (IRAs), you might have more options than you think. But those options may come with additional risk.

Some retirement savers want to look beyond stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other conventional investments offered by standard IRAs. For those interested in investing their IRA dollars in alternative investments, whether it be real estate,private placements, or even livestock, there’s another choice: self-directed IRAs.

According toIRS rules, IRAs can invest in just about anything with the exception of life insurance, most types of collectibles, andS corporationshares — that is, shares in a company that elects to pass corporate income and losses through shareholders for tax purposes.

LOS ANGELES — The next Jeep Compass leaves behind its old, boxy design that defined the brawnier Wrangler and Renegade, and takes on a look that reflects the more aerodynamic Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

That’s what Jeep fans will see as the redesigned Jeep Compass will be revealed today at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The change will give Jeep a fresh-looking compact SUV to compete in the fast-growing and highly competitive compact SUV segment.

Jeep lovers will instantly recognize the Compass’ seven-slot front grille set off by individual chrome slots in a gloss black field. The grille is part of a squarish, muscular front end that flows into a traditional clamshell hood with a double break line and center bulge.

The Compass was designed to have global appeal, said Ralph Gilles, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ head of global design. It will be sold in Europe, Asia and South America.

how to day trade: Culp, Inc.(CFI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Our analysis around past CEO transitions shows that in the absence of an inherited bubble, or milked portfolio, both of which are factually absent here when looking at the numbers, balance sheet matters ((Danaher (DHR)) from Culp (CFI) to Joyce/3M (MMM) from Buckley to Thulin), and here incoming CEO Adamczyk has a bazooka at his disposal, a dramatic differentiator. With these resources, stepping away from the 10% EPS growth target would be unnecessarily conservative, and a major misstep early on, as we see plenty of smart ways to enhance long term growth while at the same time maintaining earnings visibility, the most important determinant of a premium multiple in this sector. Honeywell is our top pick.
