    Wrong. Cramer's audience is tiny and I would bet very few of those people own any shares. Plus at over $400 per share only institutions are really in this market. If the institutions like the results then the stock will jump. If they already factored it in then not so much. Cramer has zero impact on the market so why do people talk about him.

    huge upgrade

    Needham said it believes the merger will transform the company into a powerhouse, making it the fourth largest semiconductor company in the industry.

    The firm also noted that the combined company would be the number one supplier in auto semiconductors, number one supplier in global MCU, a dominant supplier in mobile payments, and a leading IoT supplier.

    Needham analysts see "significant leverage in the model" and expect the combined company to generate "robust earnings."

    The firm added, "Ultimately, we believe the stock has room for multiple expansion as investors realize this earnings power, which we estimate could exceed $9-plus over the next several years."

    The company's PE is only 15.8 times 2016 estimate which is lower than the earnings growth rate. This does not include the potential growth due to the acquisition. We have seen a pretty big jump in the last couple of weeks. I think we need to settle in a build a base for the next move higher.

    Not more diversified than XOM. Exxon is more diversified because it has all the operations that PSX does plus it explores for and develops crude oil and natural gas. When COP split PSX away all the oil and gas operations stayed with COP, the refining & marketing, specialty lubricants, 1/2 of CPChem, 1/2 of DCP midstream and various other terminal and midstream assets went to PSX.

  • Replay should be up later. Schleifer is great in explaining what REGN is all about. When you think about it where not listening to the Super Bowl but he makes biotech sound exciting.

  • Presentation just started.

    Apparently there are not too many of them because after the initial burst in pre-market and around the open the stock traded down under up $4. It is now up over $5.60 so for some the pain continues. Analyst's price target is about $46.

    In 2011 they bought Brigham Exploration which had 330K acres in the Bakken. Acquiring WLL would give them real clout. They also have facilities in the area and are planning more. They would probably sell the Colorado property since they have no presence there. They also operate in the eastern part of the Eagleford and the Marcellus.

    Never believe the WSJ. They are shills for bandits that want to plant stories to separate you from your money. The people that write these stories are journalists who write what they are told and have very little knowledge of what is going on.

    Cramer Pounds Table

    You cab get ideas from the gurus but need to do your own research. I stumbled upon this stock awhile back and listened to their investors day webcast. Last year we bought my wife a Toyota Highlander with all the bells and whistles for our travel car. When I heard NXPI talk about all the stuff in these new vehicles and had experienced using the features it was a no brainer to pick up some shares. I also own some Master Card stock and understood how powerful NXPI chips are in that whole area. Considering the growth prospects the valuation seems quite reasonable.

    The price drop hit utilities in general because the 10 year bond interest rate ran up to 2.12% which would start to give utilities competition for investment dollars. Not so much today but in the future and these momentum players jump through their butts when change may effect their investments. D is in all the ETF's so even if people like it better than other utilities it still gets taken to the woodshed.

    As a retiree I listen to every webcast for every company that I own. If you have followed this company you know that there are huge opportunities. One of the biggest head wind in any year is hurricanes and the Virginia regulators are allowing them to bury aerial cable in rural areas. This will cut down on maintenance and problems every time their is a hurricane. Regulators in many states are waking up to the fact that utility plant has been getting old and requires investment along with the revenue to support the out lays.

    This is my favorite utility along with WEC and pipeline operators SE & KMI.

    Have no idea. That is why I am not a trader. I have owned RGEN and CELG for about 2 years and when I look back they are around double. Based on their portfolios of products going forward I would expect both to do much better than the overall market. So i do not know if they will be double again in 2 years but I expect significant gains and cannot get excited over 40 or so point swings for REGN. One thing I do know is that it is crazy to short these high growth stocks. I also own NXPI semiconductor. The shorts woke up Monday and the stock was up over 15% in premarket as NXPI bought a similar company giving them a powerful hold on all their markets.

    Todays conference

    Thanks for the heads up. I listen to every conference on every stock I own (I am retired and have the time). I should have known, I listened to REGN's earlier this week. The whole industry seems to be in a trading range price wise. Eventually these stocks will have good earnings news and we will see another share price break out.

    Sentiment: Buy

    New is a bad word to use because the PE valuations change with the 10 year bond. If the 10 year were to fall enough to create a 4% yield that 25 PE would fall drastically. MMM is also trading at a very high PE compared to it's growth rate. Any misstep sends it down, which could easily happen due to the currency issues. I am a holder but would not buy any more at current price.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Not a misprint. It has traded about 181K shares w/ low of 79.38 and high of 80.93. There is rarely any liquidity after the close so you get these crazy swings and have idiots besides that do not put in limit orders. There are traders there lurking to get good prices in both directions.

    After these kinds of run ups you will get some back sliding; however, the price now reflects a completely different company resulting from the takeover.

  • NXP Semiconductors NV (NXPI) has been on the move lately as the stock has risen by 27.9% in the past four weeks, and it is currently trading well above its 20-Day SMA. This is a pretty solid move higher, but the question that has to be on investors’ minds right now is; can this trend continue?

    While there can be no telling for sure, it is certainly encouraging that earnings estimates have risen in the past few weeks on the company, suggesting that sentiment on NXPI is moving in the right direction. In fact, the stock currently has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), suggesting that the recent run could certainly continue for this in-focus company.

    Zacks article does not mention the takeover but it is just a snippet to get you to buy the full report. Regardless it is interesting and rated a strong buy.

  • City of Tulsa Wins Southwestern American Water Works Association's Best-Tasting Water Award for Second Consecutive Year - BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

    Cabot Corporation (CBT) announced that its activated carbon is used to purify some of the best-tasting water in the United States. The City of Tulsa, Okla. recently claimed the award for best-tasting water in the region for the second year in a row at the Southwestern American Water Works Association's annual conference.

    Tulsa’s water goes through an extensive and thorough treatment and testing process before it reaches a resident’s faucet. The city’s water meets all federal and state regulations, meaning that the water not only tastes good, but that it is also safe to drink.

    For the past 15 years, the City of Tulsa has exclusively utilized NORIT® GAC 820 and HYDRODARCO® 820 granular activated carbons at both of its municipal potable water plants. This highly porous, carbonaceous material purifies drinking water by adsorbing and removing natural organic compounds, synthetic organic chemicals, and taste and odor causing compounds.

    “Cabot Norit Activated Carbon is a technology leader in the global water purification market. We develop, manufacture and market a broad range of activated carbons that ensure potable water is safe, reliable and tastes great,” said Friedrich von Gottberg, senior vice president and president, Purification Solutions Segment. “Our activated carbon products meet the most stringent global requirements and help water utilities provide their customers with safe, reliable drinking water straight from the tap.”
