Jim Chanos unveils short position in kidney-dialysis firm DaVita
Date: Thu, 19 Sep 2019 16:33:56 GMT
From feeds.marketwatch

Legendary short-seller Jim Chanos of Kynikos Associates on Thursday announced his fund has taken a short position in kidney-dialysis company DaVita Inc. . Chanos, speaking at the CNBC Institutional Investor Delivering Alpha conference, pointed to a recent lawsuit by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida Inc. and Health Options Inc. that claims DaVita has engaged in an insurance fraud scheme in an insurance fraud scheme in which it has conspired with the charity the American Kidney Fund to encourage its patients to move from Medicaid and Medicare to private insurance exchanges, with subsidies from the American Kidney Fund, so that it is able to reap higher payments for its services. Chanos said that a whilstleblower from the American Kidney Fund has come forward to claim that DaVita, a major donor to the charity, had directed it to provide funds to its customers. The announcement comes after Chanos had previously criticized the kidney dialysis industry more broadly. DaVita shares fell 2.3% during Thursday trade, and neither the company nor the American Kidney Fund immediately responded a request for comment.

Shares of McDermott International Inc. tumbled 18% on heavy volume, to pace all NYSE decliners for a second-straight session, amid fears that the provider of engineering and construction services to the energy industry may be mulling a bankruptcy after reports that it hired AlixPartners LLP as a turnaround consultant. Trading volume ballooned to 65 million shares, compared with the full-day average of 9.8 million shares and enough to make the stock the most actively traded on major U.S. exchanges. The selloff follows a record 63% plunge for the stock on Wednesday after The Wall Street Journal reported the hiring of AlixPartners. The stock was trading at the lowest levels seen during regular-sessions hours since May 6, 2003. The extended declines comes after the company responded to the report by saying it "routinely" hires external advisors, and that it was taking positive and proactive measures to improve its balance sheet and capital structure. The stock has now plummeted 73% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 20%.

Amazon.com Inc. announced Thursday that it has co-founded The Climate Pledge with Global Optimism, an organization dedicated to social and environmental change. The Climate Pledge is committed to meeting the Paris Agreement goal of being net zero carbon by 2040, 10 years earlier than the Paris Accord's 2050 deadline. Amazon has signed on to that commitment. Signatories also pledge to measure and report greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis, put carbon emissions strategies in place, and reduce other emissions through offsets. "If a company with as much physical infrastructure as Amazon-which delivers more than 10 billion items a year-can meet the Paris Agreement 10 years early, then any company can," said Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos in a statement. Amazon aims to use 100% renewable energy by 2030; is committing $100 million to restore and protect forests and wetlands through the Right Now Climate Fund, an initiative launched through a partnership with The Nature Conservancy; has launched a new sustainability website; and has invested $440 million in Rivian, a company that makes emissions-free electric vehicles. In addition to its investment in Rivian, the company has also placed an order for 100,000 vehicles that will start package deliveries in 2021. All 100,000 vehicles will be on the road by 2030. Amazon stock has rallied 21.7% in 2019, though the stock is down 5.1% over the past year. The S&P 500 index is up 20.4% for the year to date.

Boeing's 737 Max return to flight will likely come in phases: Canaccord
Date: Thu, 19 Sep 2019 15:44:31 GMT
From feeds.marketwatch

Boeing Co.'s 737 Max is likely to return to service in phases, and likely receive a go-ahead from U.S. aviation authorities by the fourth quarter, Canaccord Genuity analyst Ken Herbert said in a note Thursday. Herbert said he recently attended a supplier conference in Europe and sentiment in that region about the 737 Max appears to be "more cautious" than in the U.S. The jet has been grounded worldwide since March after two crashes less than five months apart. Boeing is still working on a solution for an equipment malfunction that appear to connect the two doomed 737 Max flights. European aviation authorities are likely to follow U.S. authorities in letting the Max resume service about three months later, Herbert said. "The extent to which pilot training will be a requirement is a risk considering the time required and the limited Max simulator capacity," the analyst said. India has announced it will conduct its own review, and while China's timing and intentions remain uncertain, it is likely that the 737 Max would return to service in China after a recertification in Europe, Herbert said.

Alliance Global Partners starts coverage of four cannabis stocks with buy ratings

From feeds.marketwatch

Alliance Global Partners initiated coverage of four cannabis companies on Thursday with analyst Aaron Grey assigning a buy rating to all four stocks, namely Acreage Holdings Inc. , Village Farms International Inc. , Green Thumb Industries Inc. and GrowGeneration Corp. . The analyst assigned a $15 price target to Acreage Holdings, almost double its current price of $8.02. "We look for the opening of new stores, build-out of its wholesale business and integration of Form Factory to drive top-line trends going forward (and look for the company to become profitable in 2H2)," Grey wrote in a note to clients. "In addition to the fundamentals, we view the company as attractively priced given it trades 50% below the implied price from the WEED deal -as we see a high likelihood of the STATES Act passing over the 7.5yr period (and acting as a trigger event for the acquisition)," he said, referring to the agreement with market leader, Canada's Canopy Growth Corp. , that gives that company the right to buy Acreage as soon as cannabis laws in the U.S. have been reformed. The analyst assigned a C$23 ($17.26) stock price target to Green Thumb. "We like management's focused strategy on executing in markets where the company believes it has a strategic advantage, as demonstrated by its strong positioning in markets such as PA and NV. In addition to strong top-line trends, the business model has now inflected to profitability, which margins we expect to expand as the company scales the business." Grey placed an $8 price target on GrowGeneration, which he views as an attractive ancillary play in the industry as a hydroponics retailer. He placed a C$26 price target on Village Farms, describing it as an attractive investment opportunity as a leading cultivator in the Canadian market via its joint venture Pure SunFarms. Acreage shares were last down 1.9%, Village Farms was up 0.3%, Green Thumb Industries was up 5% and GrowGeneration was up 0.2%. The ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF was down 1%, while the S&P 500 was up 0.5%.

Real IPOs 'happen in the private market' says Light Street Capital's Glen Kacher
Date: Thu, 19 Sep 2019 14:40:11 GMT
From feeds.marketwatch

Glen Kacher, chief investment officer of Light Street Capital, said that in today's equity markets, "We think the [initial public offering] happens in the private market and that the public IPO is just another bite of the apple," at the CNBC Institutional Investor Delivering Alpha Conference Thursday. Kacher said that the typical tech company is remaining private for an extra four years relative to previous averages, and that four years of extra time is "being funded sometimes by public investors," like pension and mutual funds. "You've got this new liquidity there and they're filling their coffers with capital." He added that this has led to a situation where public capital is no longer needed, and it is not worth it for executives to take the money in return for share dilution. Kacher's comments echoed those made by Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton earlier Thursday morning, when he worried that "If growth opportunities have shifted to a substantial extent to our private markets, and investors don't have access to them, that's not good." Clayton added that private markets often offer investors "better opportunities" to earn returns.

Bloom Energy's stock extends bounce after J.P. Morgan affirms bullish call
Date: Thu, 19 Sep 2019 14:04:00 GMT
From feeds.marketwatch

Shares of Bloom Energy Corp. jumped 4.8% in morning trading Thursday, extending its slight bounce from a sharp selloff earlier this week, after J.P. Morgan analyst Paul Coster affirmed the overweight rating he's had on the clean-energy company since he started coverage last August. Meanwhile, Coster cut his stock price target by 33% to $12, but that was 255% above current levels, as he believes commercial and industrial demand for Bloom's servers could "pause for a couple of quarters" as corporate buyers re-assess the rapidly changing energy landscape and the sustainability of Bloom's business model. Regarding the short-seller report that led to the stock's 21% plunge on Tuesday, Coster said he believes the report overstates the company's liabilities associated with long-term service contracts. While Coster said Bloom faces debt refinancing risk in late 2020, he believes the company can "buy time" by a strategic partnership that also strengthens the business model. In a worst-case scenario, Coster said Bloom could be "an attractive candidate for consolidation." The stock, which rose 0.9% on Wednesday after the company said the short-seller report contained "factual inaccuracies," has now lost 65% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 20%.

Fed completes 3rd straight repo auction to avoid short-term rate surge
Date: Thu, 19 Sep 2019 12:45:30 GMT
From feeds.marketwatch

The New York Federal Reserve Thursday morning completed its third repurchasing operation, or repos, in as many days to stem spikes in crucial overnight funding market for financial institutions. The U.S. central bank carried out $75 billion of repos, with the Street submitting bids for $83.875 billion, sources said, providing liquidity for Wall Street dealers by temporarily buying securities. Earlier this week, a surge in the repurchasing rate, used by hedge funds and banks to fund their trading operations, pushed the fed-funds rate close to the top of its targeted range. The incident has stirred worries that the central bank is at risk of losing its grip over its benchmark interest rate. On Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said at a news conference that the central bank is likely to execute similar auctions and said he doesn't see the recent jump in overnight money-market rates on Monday and Tuesday as a "having implications for the broader economy, or for the economic outlook, nor for the our ability to control rates."
