Snap stock falls after Wedbush downgrade


Reported to us by: MARKETWATCH - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 14:36 - [CET]

Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter downgraded Snap Inc. shares to neutral from outperform on Thursday, citing valuation concerns after a big run-up that's sent shares up 90% over the past three months. "Notwithstanding fierce competition for user mind-share and advertiser dollars and a history of being hugely unprofitable, progress towards profitability, stabilizing user growth and improved execution led us to upgrade shares of Snap in September," he wrote. "However, the company's current share price leaves little room for upside." Snap reports first-quarter earnings on Tuesday afternoon, and Pachter expects revenue of $315 million, a per-share loss of 11 cents, and "flat sequential [daily active user] growth." Snap's stock is down nearly 4% in premarket trading, but it's more than doubled so far this year, rising 113%, as the S&P 500 has gained 16%.

DowDuPont issues profit warning for agriculture business as severe weather hurt seed deliveries


Reported to us by: MARKETWATCH - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 13:52 - [CET]

DowDuPont Inc. said Thursday it expects its agriculture business to fall short of guidance for the first quarter after severe weather delayed seed deliveries into early April. "Less than 50% of planned seed deliveries in the last 5 days of the quarter occurred, resulting in a greater than anticipated impact on first quarter performance," the company said in a statement. "In this peak delivery period, under normal circumstances and based on history, the division would expect one day of U.S. seed sales to generate about $25 to $35 million in operating EBITDA." The division is now expected to record sales of $3.4 billion and operating EBITDA of about $665 million, down 11% and 25% versus the year-ago period, respectively. For the first half, the division is expecting sales to be down in the low-single digit percent and operating EBITDA to be 3% to 5% below the year-ago period. "Deliveries are on track with current expectations and the revised first half guidance reflects the possibility of reduced planted acres overall, lower than anticipated corn acres, and continued delays to the start of the planting season due to additional weather events," said the statement. The company is sticking with its full-year guidance for sales and operating EBITDA, and expects to overcome the first-half decline through price increases and new product launches, among other factors. Turning to its other businesses, DowDuPont is expecting specialty products to post sales of $5.4 billion, down 3% from a year ago, and operating EBITDA of $1.6 billion, flat versus the year-earlier period. That compares with earlier guidance of net sales and operating EBITDA to be down in the low-single digits. Materials science is expected to post sales of $10.8 billion and operating EBITDA of $1.9 billion, down 10% and 24% respectively. That is in line with previous guidance. Shares fell 0.5% premarket and are down 14.3% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 7.1%.

Pakistan's Finance Minister Quits Amid Criticism


Reported to us by: Voice of America -Economy - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 13:46 - [CET]
Pakistan's finance minister said Thursday he will step down amid a wave of criticism over the government's handling of a financial crisis that has sent prices soaring. Asad Umar tweeted that Prime Minister Imran Khan offered him the energy portfolio in the Cabinet but he refused. He defended Khan's leadership, calling him the "best hope" for Pakistan.   Umar's resignation came days after he returned from talks in Washington with the International Monetary Fund. Pakistan is seeking an $8 billion bailout package, but the United States, which exerts major influence over the fund, has said it should not finance the billions of dollars in loans Pakistan has taken from China as part of Beijing's "Belt and Road" infrastructure initiative.

Schlumberger profit falls in first quarter as revenue tops estimates


Reported to us by: MARKETWATCH - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 13:22 - [CET]

French oil giant Schlumberger Ltd. said Thursday it had net income of $421 million, or 30 cents a share, in the first quarter, down from $525 million, or 38 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Adjusted per-share earnings also came to 30 cents, matching the FactSet consensus. Revenue edged up to $7.879 billion from $7.829 billion, ahead of the $7.810 billion FactSet consensus. But net income and revenue were lower than the prior quarter, "reflecting the expected reduction in North America land activity and seasonally lower international activity in the Northern Hemisphere," the company said in a statement. "In addition, reduced software, product, and multiclient seismic license sales following the fourth-quarter increase and lower Cameron long-cycle project deliveries contributed to the sequential decline." In North America, revenue was 3% lower than the fourth quarter, driven by softer pricing and lower activity for hydraulic fracturing and drilling-related businesses, it said. "From a macro perspective, we expect the oil market sentiments to steadily improve over the course of 2019, supported by a solid demand outlook combined with the OPEC and Russia production cuts taking full effect, slowing shale oil production growth in North America, and a further weakening of the international production base as the impact of four years of underinvestment becomes increasingly evident," the company said. Shares fell 1.3% premarket and are down 32.6% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 7.1%.

The Travelers Cos. tops estimates, raises quarterly dividend


Reported to us by: MARKETWATCH - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 13:10 - [CET]

Insurer The Travelers Cos. Inc. said Thursday it had net income of $796 million, or $2.99 a share, in the first quarter, up from $669 million, or $2.42 a share, in the year-earlier period. Adjusted per-share earnings came to $2.83, ahead of the $2.72 FactSet consensus. The improvement was driven by lower catastrophe losses and a higher underlying underwriting gain, which was partially offset by lower net favorable prior year reserve development, the company said. Revenue rose to $7.671 billion from $7.286 billion, topping the FactSet estimate of $7.113 billion. Net premiums written rose 3% to $7.057 billion from $6.824 billion. The company had an underwriting gain of $395 million, up from $258 million a year ago. Net investment income fell to $582 million from $603 million, as lower private equity returns weighed against higher fixed income returns. The company is raising its quarterly dividend by 6.5% to 82 cents a share. Shares were not yet active premarket, but have fallen 0.4% in the last 12 months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which counts Travelers as a member, has gained 6.9%, and the S&P 500 has gained 7.1%.

Mustang Bio's stock soars to near 4-fold gain after deal to commercialize 'bubble boy' disease treatment


Reported to us by: MARKETWATCH - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 13:00 - [CET]

Shares of Mustang Bio Inc. blasted off to a near 4-fold gain (up 257%) in premarket trade Thursday, after the biopharmaceutical company said it entered a licensing agreement with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to develop the lentiviral gene therapy for the treatment of "bubble boy" disease (XSCID) for commercial use. Data from a phase 1/2 clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of a lentiviral vector to transfer a normal copy of the IL2RG gene to bone marrow stem cells in newly diagnosed infants under the age of two with XSCID, showed that bone marrow harvest, busulfan conditioning and cell infusion were well tolerated, all patients cleared previous infections and are growing normally and most patients were discharged from the hospital within one month. "The results have been very good thus far," said Ewelina Mamcarz, assistant member at St. Jude. "We've been able to restore a full immune system pretty quickly." Mustang Bio's stock, which is on track to open at a 1-year high, was down 9.5% year to date through Wednesday. In comparison, the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF has gained 9.0% and the S&P 500 has advanced 15.7%.

Facebook 'unintentionally uploaded' email contacts of 1.5 million users: report


Reported to us by: MARKETWATCH - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 12:01 - [CET]

Facebook had "unintentionally uploaded" email contacts of 1.5 million new users since March 2016, Reuters reported late Wednesday, citing company confirmation in its report. New users of the social media site were being asked to verify accounts with their email passwords, a process that in some cases uploaded those users' email contacts to Facebook, the company told Reuters in a statement. "These contacts were not shared with anyone and we are deleting them," the company told Reuters. Facebook has dropped the email password verification requirement. It's the latest discovery about a company already under scrutiny for privacy-related issues, including a data scandal in which Cambridge Analytica obtained 87 million Facebook users' personal information without their consent. FB shares are slightly lower in Thursday pre-market action. They're up more than 36% year to date.
