    they have their AGENDA...most likely short players...Headquartered in Houston, Kinder Morgan is a pipeline operator, transporting oil, natural gas and various chemicals like ethanol. Due to the recent dip in oil prices, its stock is down more than 9% on the year. But Kinder Morgan has a consensus buy rating and average 12-month price target of $47, suggesting gains of about 22% from current levels of around $38.35. Not to mention, the company is projected to grow earnings at an annual rate of 10% over the next five years.

    This explains why Executive Chairman Richard Kinder has spent some $4 billion on 100,000 shares, buying on the open market at around $39 per share. It would seem CEO Steven Kean also thought $39 was good value for KMI stock: He spent almost $500,000 on 12,000 shares in the open market.

    All told, according to Nasdaq, there have been three insider buys of KMI stock in the last three months, and 22 in the last 12 months. And during the past year, there was no insider selling. If that's not a bullish indicator for retail investors, I don't know what is.

  • KKR's biggest competitors are surpassing it in the most important metric on Wall Street. For years, Blackstone has been the biggest PE firm on Wall Street by assets under management (AUM). But Steve Schwarzman's investment firm has done something more important for his investors than just growing through its expanding real estate portfolio. Unlike KKR, Blackstone is successfully exiting the biggest investment it has ever made. Over the last five years, Blackstone's stock has appreciated at a rate more than double that of KKR.

    Steve Plavin, BXMT's Chief Executive Officer, said, "I'm very pleased with our execution in closing the purchase of the GE loans. We have now acquired $4.8 billion of loans, including the participation interests from the Mubadala-GE joint venture. Because of the accelerated closing timeframe, the third quarter will now fully reflect the increased earnings power from these loans as well as the beneficial impact of greater scale and capital deployment on our ability to generate core earnings and dividends."

    13:35 EDT - Blackstone (BX) lapped most of its rivals in cashing out of older investments this quarter, which Credit Suisse estimates should help the firm top dividend expectations. The investment bank thinks BX--which sold blocks of shares in Pinnacle (PF), Hilton (HLT), Nielsen (NLSN) and Catalent(CTLT) --raised more than $6.5B this quarter selling assets. That's more than $1B less than BX harvested during 1Q, when the firm paid out its highest-ever quarterly dividend of 89c/share. But the quirks of private-equity-fund accounting should put more of this quarter's sales proceeds in shareholder's pockets, predicts Credit Suisse.

  • In real estate finance company Blackstone Mortgage Trust Inc (NYSE:BXMT), John Khoury increased his stake by 2% to 4.69 million shares with a value of $133.18 million. Blackstone, which originates and acquires senior loans collateralized by real estate in Europe and North America, has increased 1.5% on the exchange year-to-date and slightly more, a modest 1.9%, for the last year. The stock leapt on April 10 when it was announced that Blackstone Mortgage Trust Inc (NYSE:BXMT) was about to buy a $4.60 billion mortgage loan portfolio from GE Capital Real Estate (NYSE:GE) but has since fallen back, even despite the first quarter earnings of $0.54 that were announced on April 28 meeting analysts’ expectations. Other shareholders of the company are hoping it will meet their own expectations, including Joshua Kaufman and Craig Nerenberg‘s Brenner West Capital Partners, which increased its stake in the REIT by 2% to 1.04 million shares during the first quarter.

    TORONTO, June 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intellipharmaceutics International Inc. (IPCI) (TSX:I) ("Intellipharmaceutics" or the "Company"), a pharmaceutical company specializing in the research, development and manufacture of novel and generic controlled-release and targeted-release oral solid dosage drugs, today announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") has indicated that the Company's tentatively-approved strengths of its generic Focalin XR(R) (dexmethylphenidate hydrochloride extended-release) capsules (the "Product") will have to meet newly-imposed conditions for bioequivalence prior to receiving final approval. The strengths affected are 5 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg and 40 mg. The already-approved 15 mg and 30 mg strengths now in the market are not affected.

    The FDA, in November 2013, had previously granted the Company tentative approvals for the 5 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg, and 40 mg strengths of its generic Focalin XR(R). The Company is now required by the FDA to demonstrate bioequivalence with Focalin XR(R), under the new bioequivalence criteria, for the 40 mg strength as a basis for the approval of each of the affected strengths.

    The Company, together with its United States commercialization partner, Par Pharmaceutical, Inc., intends to review and vigorously pursue all reasonable courses of action towards achieving final approval for each of the affected strengths. There can be no assurance that the affected strengths of the Product will be granted final FDA approval or sold commercially.
