Vertex Pharmaceuticals stock tumbles to pace S&P 500 losers after disappointing drug trial data #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Shares of Vertex Pharmaceuticals Inc. tumbled 13.8% in premarket trading Friday, enough to pace the S&P 500's early decliners, after the biotechnology company released what was seen as disappointing data on its treatment for people with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD), which can lead to liver and lung disease. The stock was on track to open at the lowest price seen during regular-session hours since October 2019. The company said late Thursday that the Phase 2 trial of VX-864 mets its primary endpoint, showing a mean increase of 2.2 to 2.3 micromolar fAAT levels across the dose groups compared with placebo. Analyst Cory Kasimov at J.P. Morgan reiterated his overweight rating but cut his stock price target to 5 from 9, saying the trials results were "clearly" a setback. "Management is adamant that this is actually a step in the right direction for the program," Kasimov wrote. "We doubt [Wall Street] will agree." Stifel Nicolaus's Paul Matteis cut his stock price target to 4 from 7: "The announcement of modest AAT increases for VX-864, despite what looked like great data in animals, makes it difficult for us to garner conviction that futures compounds will perform materially better." The stock has lost 8.3% year to date, while the S&P 500 has climbed 12.9%.

Chipotle price hike doesn't change its 'strong' value proposition: Raymond James #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. was upgraded to strong buy from outperform at Raymond James based on recent menu price hikes. Analysts maintained the ,800 price target. "We believe Chipotle has a very strong value proposition (chicken burrito still sub- in many markets) and that price increases to cover higher wages will result in limited customer resistance," analysts led by Brian Vaccaro wrote. Wedbush says Chipotle is on the road to "best-in-class store margins" and recent share declines create "a compelling entry point." Chipotle stock is down 6% over the past three months, and down 1.4% for the year to date. The S&P 500 index has gained 13.1% for 2021 so far. Chipotle confirmed price hikes last week. The higher prices will cover the costs of wage increases that were announced last month.

Ferrari shares traded lower in Milan as Goldman Sachs cut its rating on the sportscar maker to sell from buy, and its price target was lowered to 7 from 7. The company's announcement of a battery electric vehicle by 2025, and the appointment of a new chief executive with a tech background, may drive the need for incremental capital spending. "Uncertainty around future capex requirements also brings uncertainty around future earnings and cash flow," said analysts led by George Galliers. While the broader auto industry will benefit from improving production as chip shortages ease and improving end markets, the analysts say Ferrari won't be a notable beneficiary.

Amazon could be forced to shed assets under House bill: report #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
House lawmakers are preparing to propose legislation that could require Amazon.com Inc. and other tech giants to effectively split into two companies or shed their private-label products, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday, citing people familiar with the matter. The bill could be announced Friday, the Journal said. The proposal could force structural separation of Amazon and other big tech companies that Congress has spent 15 months investigating, according to the Journal. The report said a separate bill targets the ability of big tech companies to leverage their online platforms to favor their own products. Each bill has Democrats and Republicans signed on, the Journal said.

Tesla stock holds to weekly advance after 'Plaid' Model S #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Tesla Inc. stock fell on Friday after the unveiling of a souped-up version of its Model S sedan late Thursday, but the stock held on to gains around 1.3% for the week. The Model S, a sedan first sold in 2012, has lost ground to Tesla's cheaper sedan, the Model 3, and the newest offering, the compact SUV Model Y. The "Plaid" version of the Model S, which had its interior redesigned and is faster and more expensive, is also a few months late to get to market, and the Thursday event itself was more than one hour late in starting. Tesla and other auto makers have endured months of chip and parts shortages and rising raw-materials costs just as demand for new and used cars has increased. A revamped Model X, Tesla's full-size SUV, is also in the works. Shares of Tesla have lost 14% this year, but advanced 212% in the past 12 months. That contrasts with gains of 13% and 41% for the S&P 500 index in the same period.

J&J stock drops after report FDA said millions of COVID-19 vaccine doses need to be discarded #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Shares of Johnson & Johnson took a 1.4% hit in morning trading Friday, after a report that health officials decided the drugmaker needs to throw out millions of doses of its COVID-19 vaccine because of possible contamination. The New York Times reported Friday, citing people familiar with the situation, that after weeks of review, the Food and Drug Administration told J&J to discard 60 million doses of its vaccine made at a Baltimore plant under federal review, which is operated by Emergent BioSolutions Inc. , because of possible contamination. The FDA said Friday that it was authorizing emergency use of two batches of vaccines made at the Baltimore facility, even though it said it is "not yet ready" to include the plant as an authorized facility for the vaccine. The NYT report comes after the FDA approved the extension of the shelf life of J&J's one-dose vaccine, to 4 1/2 months from 3 months, as supply piled up. J&J's stock has gained 3.6% over the past three months, while the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has gained 8.6% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has tacked on 5.9%.

S&P 500 opens higher Friday, aims to end week at a record ahead of big Fed policy update #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
U.S. equity benchmarks rose modestly early Friday, looking to end the week on a positive note after the S&P 500 logged a record close despite another round of hotter-than-expected inflation data. Investors are now looking to the start on June 15 of the Federal Reserve's two-day policy meeting. The S&P 500 index was heading 0.1% higher at 4,244, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.3% at 34,552, while the Nasdaq Composite Index advanced less than 0.1% at 14,022. The U.S. economic calendar is light following Thursday's inflation fireworks. A preliminary June consumer sentiment index reading is due at 10 a.m. Eastern. On Thursday, stocks and government debt rallied, despite data that showed the rate of U.S. consumer inflation over the past year escalated to a 13-year high of 5% from 4.2% in the prior month. That put it at the highest level since 2008, when the cost of oil hit a record 0 a barrel. Before that, the last time inflation was as high was in 1991. In corporate news, meme stocks remain in focus, with shares of AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. up more than 6% in premarket trading Friday, after falling 22.2% over the past two sessions. The stock and other meme stocks, took a hit Thursday after GameStop Corp. .
