  • allinckrodt

    Mallinckrodt’s purchase of Cadence Pharmaceuticals earlier this year is expected to remain accretive, although the firm was put through the wringer for what some thought was overpaying. Now, as the company finishes up its most recent merger and acquisition with Questcor Pharmaceuticals, it will once again be digesting yet another large acquisition. During the company’s recent analyst day, it gave guidance for 2015 that was ahead of current Wall Street expectations. It also indicated that continued mergers and acquisitions remain a part of the corporate strategy.

    The Jefferies target price is $110, and the consensus target is $100.08. The stock closed Wednesday at $84.33, down almost 3%. Trading to the Jefferies target would be a 33% gain for investors.

    hourly gaps are not counted as gaps... the high on 10/17 was 91.44 so it does not show as a gap on a daily can see many gaps like that in see a much bigger gap on 10/22 from high of 87.11 to next trade low of 88.14..

    Pipeline operators allocate shipments on their networks when demand exceeds capacity. Before the Cochin connection, allocations had been rare on Explorer, Argo said. Now, between the diluent shipments and strong demand for gasoline and diesel, Argo said the pipeline has seen “some periods of allocation.”

    Colonial Pipeline Co., which operates a system that sends gasoline and diesel from the Gulf Coast to the U.S. Northeast, also allocated deliveries this week, e-mailed notices to shippers show.

  • Eircom Pulls Share Sale as Investors Favor Holding for Value
    By Joe Brennan Sep 19, 2014 11:28 AM PT 0 Comments Email Print
    Eircom Group, the Irish phone carrier controlled by lenders led by Blackstone Group LP (BX), pulled plans to join the stock market for the third time in 15 years as shareholders concluded they would extract more value by not selling shares at this time.

    Eircom’s main shareholders “expressed their clear preference to continue participating in the upside” from investment in its telecommunications network in recent years, which has only recently begun to feed into its financial results, it said in a statement.

    Feedback from potential investors suggested a valuation, including debt, of between 2.8 billion euros ($3.6 billion) and 3.3 billion euros and that that 3 billion euros was achievable, said a person with knowledge of the matter, who asked not to be named because the matter is private.

    “The company declines to comment on the possible valuation range that was under consideration,” Dublin-based Eircom said in an e-mailed statement.

    Eircom came out of bankruptcy protection two years ago after creditors wrote off 40 percent of its more than 4 billion euros ($5.1 billion) in gross debt, which was accumulated during a series of ownership changes. The company was planning to raise as much as 1 billion euros through a sale sale to further reduce its debt position, three people familiar with the matter said on Sept. 12.

    O’Reilly Takeover

    The former state-owned carrier held its initial public offering in 1999. Two years later, the company was taken over by a group led by Irish businessman Anthony O’Reilly. Eircom returned to the stock market in 2004, before it was acquired in 2006 in another leveraged buyout.

    Eircom lists the group led by Blackstone’s credit units as its largest shareholder, with a 24.4 percent stake, followed by Anchorage Capital Group entities, with 8 percent, and Credit Suisse Group AG with 6.3 percent, according to an Aug. 28 bondholder filing. The current senior lenders are Eircom’s seventh set of owners.

    Eircom hired Rothschild, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley earlier this year to advise on options for the business.

    Microsoft Office is still the bedrock of business and now that the software giant's other products are catching on the stock is taking off, said Thomas Yorke, Managing Director at Oceanic Capital on Covestor. Yorke added that Microsoft has been very shareholder friendly with buybacks and dividends, and it has a massive pile of cash for M&A. Yorke is also bullish on shares of Blackstone, saying the private equity powerhouse trades at a cheap valuation considering its real estate holdings and dealmaking successes. Finally, Yorke said he remains bullish on the dollar as foreign central banks continue to weaken their currencies.
