    GLNG Golar LNG reported solid Q3 results, says Wells Fargo
    Wells Fargo views Golar LNG's Q3 results as "positive on just about all fronts" and attributes part of Wednesday's sell-off in shares to an "early misreading of the report that was picked up in trade press." Wells points out Golar reaffirmed its timeline for the Cameroon FLNG project. The firm reiterates an Outperform rating on the stock with a $67-$76 price target range.

  • Cramer said this yesterday about Nat Gas Carriers. He's a bit confused that Navigator is Product tanker Liquified Petroleum Gas....GLNG would be the one to benefit from what cramer is highlighting here..."It's still too early to begin picking among the rubble in the energy sector, Cramer told viewers, but that doesn't mean there aren't bargains to be had in stocks that have been wrongfully accused of being energy stocks. That's certainly the case with Navigator Holdings (NVGS) , Cramer pointed out. This purveyor of liquified natural gas ships doesn't have anything to do with the price of oil or gas.

    Shares of Navigator are down a stunning 40% from their highs, Cramer noted. Investors have mistakenly viewed the company as another casualty of falling energy prices. But what matters to Navigator is not the price of what it carries in its 26 vessels, but the imbalance of where gas is found versus where it needs to go.

    Navigator benefits from classic supply and demand: surplus versus shortage. The U.S. currently has a ton of excess natural gas while the rest of the world is in dire need of more. The U.S. has no less than five export terminals currently under construction. Just one of those terminals, the one being developed by Enterprise Product Partners (EPD) , is set to open in late 2015 and is already 85% subscribed. That terminal alone will need 25 new ships to transport its gas. "

  • What to Buy in Oil and Biotech?
    By Jim Cramer | Dec 23, 2014 | 2:36 PM EST

    "Now, how about the other group that is still in freefall -- the biotechs? I like Isis (ISIS) and I like Celgene (CELG) because they have been hammered and they both have products that aren't about to get the Express Scripts (ESRX) treatment.

    I think that ESRX has had enough of a run and I would rather own Cigna (CI) or UnitedHealth (UNH). Again, no hurry, but they are down and if we get some slower number we will wish we had bought."

  • VOLC Volcano: Philips (PHG) to acquire Volcano for $18 per share

    Royal Philips (PHG) and Volcano (VOLC) announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement.

    •Philips will commence a tender offer to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Volcano for $18.00 per share, or a total equity purchase price of $1 billion (approx. EUR 800 million), to be paid in cash upon completion.

    •The board of directors of Volcano has unanimously approved the transaction and recommends the offer to its shareholders.

    •The transaction is expected to be accretive to Philips' reported earnings per share by 2017, and Philips targets an EBITA margin for its image-guided therapy business group of around 20% by 2017.

    The next company I predict will get bought out is FEYE :))

  • "Our pick of the year for 2015. We like TrueCar for its disruptive business model and believe that the rebounding auto industry should provide a tailwind for the stock, which is well positioned to grow its market share of U.S. auto sales. We remain long-term bullish on the company, which gives auto consumers a negotiation-free experience and makes pricing transparent, which is radically changing the way cars are sold in the U.S.

    Last TRUE analyst coverage I can find is copied below. Break Out stocks on Real Money, Cramer's paid site, said this today,

    TRUE--"We remain long-term bullish on the company, which gives auto consumers a negotiation-free experience and makes pricing transparent, which is radically changing the way cars are sold in the U.S"

    Through its more than 9,000 active dealer partners, the company gives consumers a negotiation-free experience and makes pricing transparent. The company provides guaranteed upfront pricing by showing consumers the dealer’s price on the car they want and what other consumers in their local area have paid on the same car and nationally as well. The company is seeking to branch its offerings into adjacent markets and plans to offer a trade in product, a loan platform and a leasing platform in the future. We also see the company’s growing OEM (original equipment manufacturer) incentives programs, for which they currently service 12 brands, as a driver of upside.

    TrueCar charges a dealer $299 for each new car sale it successfully brings to the dealer and $399 for each successful used car sale. Dealers love the service because it costs them less to acquire a customer via TrueCar than if they tried to woo the customer on their own. TrueCar delivers a customer who already wants to buy a particular car to the dealership. Dealers then have to spend less time on selling the customer. It also increases their volumes, which, in turn, gets them better pricing on new cars. About 80% of TrueCar’s sales are derived from new cars. The balance is from used cars. We initiated our position in TrueCar in October, on the day that Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A:NYSE) announced it was buying Van Tuyl Group, a privately-held auto dealership group that is the fifth largest in the U.S., which we viewed as validation of the health of the auto industry. We see TrueCar as a game changer and believe 2015 will be an interesting ride

    Best Idea for 2015: TRUE

    Bryan Ashenberg, CFA

    12/10/14 - 10:44 AM ESTWe are naming TrueCar (TRUE:Nasdaq) as one of our Best Ideas for 2015.

    While the stock already performed well since we initiated our position in October, we believe the company (and stock) is set up for a strong 2015 performance as it is a truly disruptive force in the way automobiles are sold in the United States. November new car sales figures have just recently hit the market with a November SAAR (seasonally adjusted annual rate) of 17.2 million, which is the best November result in a decade. The domestic auto industry continues its rebound and my pick to play the trend is TrueCar, which accounted for 3.7% of new cars sold in the third quarter, up from 2.6% last year. In the third quarter, users on the company’s platform accounted for 172,000 unit sales across the TrueCar certified- dealer network in the third quarter, 47% higher than the 117,000 units recorded last year. TrueCar consumers accounted for nearly 15% of new vehicle sales for the average TrueCar certified dealer.

    The company showed solid operating leverage in the quarter -- a key factor in our bullishness -- delivering adjusted EBITDA of $3.9 million for year-over-year growth of 60% and up from $1.8 million in the second quarter. EBITDA margin was 6.8%, which was well ahead of the 4-5.5% guidance management issued last quarter.

    Momentum Trader: FUEL Swing Long

    Stock had a big move last week after earnings but has came back to pre-gap levels and has held the 50 Day EMA ($17 area) the past 3-trading sessions and looks like a rebound could happen. With 25% of the float short and continued rumors of a FB takeout, scaling in for a Swing Long as price shows support in the $17 area.

    Momentum Trader: SALE Swing Long (14.56 +0.08)

    The holiday shopping season is upon us, as Black Friday is next week and the strongest month for Retailers is here. Not surprisingly, some of my past few trades have been Retail oriented (COH, ANF, BRDR & W) and they have done well as the seasonal factor has moved these names (TGT & WMT positive earnings have also helped).

    Taking a look at beaten down name as company is the leader in coupons and price comparisons for online/offline retailers. With over 100M shoppers ready for the holidays, company and stock should get exposure. With 20% of the float short, scaling in for a Swing Long.

    10:30 EDT PFIE

    Profire Energy initiated with a Buy at Lake StreetTarget $6.

    Briefing profile of PFIE

    PFIE Profire Energy, which recently moved up to the Nasdaq from the Bulletin Boards on March 27, makes burner management systems (BMS) for the oil & gas industry, and also resells certain oilfield products (at lower margins). PFIE's proprietary BMS is a high-tech thermostat that monitors and manages the burner flames that are widely used in the production and transportation of oil & natural gas. Current methods to make sure burners are at the correct temp or haven't gone out are manual, inefficient, and often dangerous. PFIE's BMS electronically monitors the flames and reignites them as needed, which is a big improvement over the current manual process, and can thus can help E&P customers cut costs, improve efficiency, and reduce injuries and fatalities. PFIE estimates their TAM is roughly $4-8 bln (covering the 1.3 million oil & gas wells in North America, and the ~45,000 new wells drilled each year). In 2010 Canada mandated the installation of burner management technology in wells; if the US followed suit that would create a major catalyst for PFIE. Both sales and EPS growth rates have accelerated in the past year to triple-digits, the company is solidly profitable with 20+% operating margins, and has no LT debt.
