    Please Explain

    by mugnainimark 5 hours ago

    long time holder here...good question.. no good answer :)..year end positioning..In my opinion.. the stock market has been so strong that it scares a lot of traders, investors, etc..and they sell whatever thinking a correction is needed... I am one of them.. the strong market has fooled many... BS to me is a very undervalued stock..I am holding and of course disappointed to see action like today..but it was light volume and holiday and year end trading is often confusing.. I think the year end earnings and dividend will get us a new high.. in my opinion :)

The portfolio's gain is just shy of the nearly 5% gain of the S&P 500. Helping BX is crafts retailer Michaels' (MIK) 40% pop, semiconductor maker Freescale's (FSL) 27% jump and drug developer Catalent(CTLT) gaining 16%. BX itself is up 9% in 4Q; it's flat today

  • seems like they will have a lot of profits to report resulting in a good dividend...Nielsen Holdings N.V. (NLSN) recently announced that Valcon Acquisition Holding (Luxembourg), the selling stockholder, has priced a secondary offering of 20 million shares.

    The offering has been priced at $43.77 per share. The underwriters of the offering have an option to purchase up to 3,000,000 additional shares from the selling stockholder.

    The shares will be sold by stockholders affiliated to The Blackstone Group, Thomas H. Lee Partners, Hellman & Friedman and AlpInvest Partners. Consequently, Nielsen will not obtain any proceeds from the equity offer.

  • He reckons that a lot of fund managers have tried to hit it big in recent weeks by buying energy stocks during market dips, a strategy that has backfired severely as oil continues to fall. That in turn has made them more likely to sell other non-energy based assets in an attempt to lock in gains on those stocks for their investors.

    Zacks lowered shares of The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) from an outperform rating to a neutral rating in a research report released on Friday morning. Zacks currently has $35.00 price objective on the stock.
    Zacks’ analyst wrote, “We are downgrading our long-term recommendation on Blackstone to Neutral owing to constantly rising expenses. Further, the company’s third-quarter 2014 economic net income (ENI) per share missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. The weak quarterly performance was driven by higher operating expenses. However, consistent improvement in revenues continued to be the company’s strength and salvaged the results to some extent. Going forward, the improving economic conditions are expected to assist the company’s fund-raising ability. Also, the changing investor preference for alternative asset classes and other risk management strategies will further boost top line in the forthcoming quarters. However, we remain apprehensive regarding the adverse effects of ongoing capital market volatility and stringent regulations.”
    Zacks has also modified their ratings on a number of other financials stocks in the few days. The firm upgraded shares of Synergetics USA Inc from an underperform rating to a neutral rating. The firm now has a $3.50 price target on that stock. Also, Zacks downgraded shares of StealthGas Inc. from an outperform rating to a neutral rating. Their analysts now have a $6.50 price target on that stock.

  • Freescale Semiconductor (FSL) is rising Friday after Bernstein Research upgraded the stock.

    Analyst Stacy Rasgon boosted his rating on the stock from Market Perform to Outperform, and raised his target price by $11 to $31. He writes that the move comes as cyclical indicators have improved since September for semiconductors, and the stocks now have lower expectations and valuations.

    He notes that higher inventories do offset some of the good news, but overall he characterizes the outlook as “reasonably positive” for the more cyclically exposed names. In the case of Freescale specifically, Rasgon writes that the Street is pegging year-over-year growth too low for 2015.
