Hill-Rom initiation details — Buy at Stifel; tgt $70  (58.52)Stifel initiates HRC with a Buy and price target of $70 noting co's now clearly higher margin portfolio, together with a burgeoning innovation pipeline, should in turn provide ongoing opportunities to drive what firm believes could be F2020 EPS of $6+ (vs. Stifel F2020E: $5.26). Key drivers of their "$6+ EPS upside scenario" might include: sales growth and margin-enhancing portfolio optimization, balance sheet de-leveraging, and possibly lowering a now out-sized tax rate. At 13x their 2018E EPS (peers: 18x), shares appear undervalued. Still, firm acknowledges several real and perceived headwinds that have and are likely to continue to be debated and reflected in HRC's current below-peer multiple: (1) Capital Exposure (2) Recent OUS Sales Headwinds.

 Overnight Summary — World markets signaling modestly higher start for Tuesday
  • The global equity markets are generally higher this morning, although net changes are marginal. S&P futures are up just a fraction of a point thus far with trading fairly subdued for the bulk of the overnight session.
  • The news flow out of Asian was light, with Japan releasing the most significant economic data point from the region. The Preliminary Manufacturing PMI for January saw a MoM increase to 52.8 (up from 52.4 in Dec). The recent strength in the yen plagued the Nikkei, with the index losing 0.6%. However, the USD/JPY hit multi-month lows near the mid-way point of the trading day, helping the Japanese also pull off session lows. Although the Cash market closed down for the day, the Nikkei futures have managed to claw its way back to unchanged on the day (current levels). The Shanghai saw another lack-luster campaign, with traders seemingly looking forward to the start of Golden Week, just a few days away.
  • European bourses are stronger, but also somewhat uneventful. The biggest news out of the region came from the UK where the Supreme Court ruled that Parliament must vote on start of Brexit negotiations, which means the Article 50 may end up taking longer to implement than previously proposed. With that said, this was generally expected. One more notable item from the announcement declared the UK does not need to consult with Scotland, which would have likely stymied the process even longer. The release caused some volatility in the Pound, but the currency quickly moved back to where it started following an initial knee jerk downward. The Stock markets saw little reaction to the news.

Market updates:

  • S&P Futures vs Fair Value: +0.5
  • 10 yr Note: 2.4284%
  • USD/JPY: 113.33 +0.63

 Rice Energy upgraded to Buy at Williams Capital Group; tgt raised to $27  (20.47)Williams Capital Group upgrades RICE to Buy from Hold and raises their tgt to $27 from $25 as shares now present a more attractive risk/reward profile. Firm believes a better entry point has emerged with RICE shares offering an attractive valuation relative to their 2018 EBITDA generation and RNAV analysis. While the natural gas forward curve backwardation into 2018 and beyond has firm concerned, they believe there is support for higher prices ahead with the increasing industrial/export demand and recent domestic storage drawdowns. Further, RICE is well positioned to execute on its growth strategy with its strong balance sheet (~$1.6 billion of liquidity), hedge book (~93.1% and ~78.0% of its 2017 and 2018 natural gas is hedged, respectively) and firm takeaway/sales portfolio. Additionally, they see the planned drop downs of its retained midstream assets as catalysts.

  Pioneer Natural Resources downgraded to Hold at Williams Capital Group; tgt lowered to $206  (182.90)Williams Capital Group downgrades PXD to Hold from Buy and lowers their tgt to $206 from $226. After revisiting their production and RNAV models for a more consistent growth trajectory going forward, PXD presents a less attractive risk/reward proposition. While PXD is tracking to move away from outspending internally generated cash flow, it will sacrifice production and cash flow growth, which may drive a potential multiple contraction. Firm has also reduced their RNAV on a reduced rig cadence. Despite the upside to their revised price target, which is based on a 10.5x 2018 EBITDA multiple (the highest in our coverage) and a 20% discount to their RNAV, firm's Hold-rated is on a relative basis and they continue to prefer cos with more than 20% upside to tgts.

U.S. stock futures are relatively flat this morning as investors digest a slew of earnings reports before Tuesday's opening bell. The S&P 500 futures trade one point below fair value.

  Ionis Pharma: Color on Spinraza launch/reimbursement  (43.94)
  • Chardan notes Anthem (ANTM) guidelines may suggest caution on Spinraza efficacy and safety beyond SMA type 1. As part of the reimbursement guidelines, Anthem made clear that "[t]o date, there is no evaluable published data on the safety and efficacy of nusinersen in individuals with more than two copies of SMN2 or symptom onset after 6 months of age." Beyond the lack of efficacy signal, they believe such caution on safety potentially reflects the platform safety risk of platelet loss (thrombocytopenia), particularly considering the first adverse event warning listed is «Thrombocytopenia and Coagulation Abnormalities.» They would further emphasize that in SMA types 2 and 3, which are longer-term progressive neurodegenerative disorders than SMA type 1, the risk-benefit decision calculus is different, especially in terms of chronic safety risks like thrombocytopenia. As such, it is possible that ongoing clinical studies of Spinraza in SMA type 2 and 3 might reveal significant adverse events related to platelet loss that serve to limit their adoption and reimbursement by payers.
  • Jefferies reiterated Hold on BIIB — who markets Spinraza for IONS.
  • RBC notes Anthem recently posted «mixed» initial reimbursement coverage for new FDA-approved Spinraza which consensus has around $150-190M WW sales for 2017 and which they think is achievable (<2% of 2017 BIIB sales). Regardless of whether sales this year specifically hits this range or beats it is a bit early to tell but they think their **NUSI-APP** model which attempts to model the launch by month using estimated 10-25+ patients coming on per month — suggests this range should be doable this year; Outperform on BIIB.
  • IONS broke support near 45 while BIIB broke support near 280 yersterday.

  European Summary

U.K. Supreme Court Says Triggering Article 50 Requires Act of Parliament

  • European sovereign debt yields are moving broadly higher this morning despite modestly disappointing purchasing managers' index data for the eurozone. The eurozone's Markit composite purchasing managers' index fell by one tenth of a point to 54.3 for January, missing expectations for improvement of the same magnitude. Various parts of the report did beat estimates, such as the manufacturing PMI for both the whole eurozone and France's services sector. Data for the other countries in the eurozone will be released later this month, at which time French and German data will be revised. The survey data for January is consistent with 0.4% q/q growth in Q1 2017, according to Markit
  • The U.K.'s highest court ruled 8-3 today that Parliament would have to pass legislation to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, initiating the two-year countdown for the U.K. to leave the European Union. A spokesman from PM Theresa May's government said that it still plans to trigger Article 50 by the end of March
  • European Economic Data:
    • The eurozone's manufacturing PMI rose to 55.1 for January from 54.9 for December, according to preliminary estimates. January's reading beat estimates. Most heartening, according to Markit Chief Economist Chris Williamson, was the best monthly gain for hiring in the factory sector since the global financial crisis 
      • The eurozone's services PMI unexpectedly fell to 53.6 from 53.7
    • Germany's manufacturing PMI unexpectedly rose to match its five-year high at 56.5, up from 55.6 in December
      • The services gauge for Germany missed estimates, falling to 53.2 from 54.3
    • France's manufacturing PMI ticked down to 53.4 for January, as expected, from 53.5 in December
      • France's services PMI rose more than expected to 53.9 from 52.9
    • The U.K.'s public sector net borrowing fell more than expected to GBP6.42 bln in December from GBP10.83 bln in November
  • Yield Check:
    • France, 10-yr OAT: +1 bp to 0.88%
    • Germany, 10-yr Bund: +3 bps to 0.40%
    • Greece, 10-yr note: -4 bps to 6.91%
    • Italy, 10-yr BTP: unch at 2.00%
    • Portugal, 10-yr PGB: unch at 3.77%
    • Spain, 10-yr ODE: unch at 1.45%
    • U.K., 10-yr Gilt: +3 bps to 1.40%

 S&P futures vs fair value: +2.00. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +9.60.

The stock market is on track to open Tuesday slightly higher as the S&P 500 futures trade two points above fair value.

Earnings reports have been the focal point of pre-market action, with a bundle of companies reporting between yesterday's close and today's open. Thus far, the most notable losers have been, Verizon (VZ 50.54, -1.87), Lockheed Martin (LMT 248.44, -8.98), and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ 111.87, -2.02), while the most notable winners have been DR Horton (DHI 29.75, +1.01) and Yahoo! (YHOO 43.90, +1.50).

Crude oil has ticked up in recent action as the latest narrative for the commodity suggests that reports of lower production from key exporters have been offset by an uptick in U.S. drilling. The energy component is up 0.5%, near its overnight high, trading at $53.09/bbl.

Conversely, Treasuries are under pressure this morning after a big Monday advance. With the 10-yr yield up three basis point at 1.4% and the U.S. Dollar Index (100.16, +0.21) adding 0.2%, early-morning action suggests investors have somewhat of a risk-on attitude to start the day.

Today's economic data will be limited to December Existing Home Sales (Briefing.com consensus 5.55 million), which will cross the wires at 10:00 am ET.

 Midday Market Summary: Averages Near Session Highs at Midday

A risk-on tone has been underlying today's session as the major averages have advanced steadily since the opening bell. All three have hit fresh session highs in recent action, and currently hold gains around 0.5% apiece.

Sector standings tell the same story as investors have favored growth-sensitive sectors over their safer, non-cyclical counterparts. All six cyclical sectors are in the green, with materials (+2.3%) pacing the advance. DuPont (DD 75.93, +3.14) set the sector's tone earlier this morning, beating earnings estimates and announcing that its merger with Dow Chemical (DOW 59.11, +1.97) is expected to close in the first half of 2017. In addition, Alcoa (AA 38.07, +1.78) has jumped 4.9% ahead of its quarterly report, which will be released after today's closing bell. 

Sitting just below the top of the leaderboard are the financial (+1.2%) and energy (+1.1%) sectors. The financial sector has returned into the green for the year while energy has narrowed its January loss to 1.2%. Energy has moved in tandem with crude oil, which has added 1.3% as reports of lower production from key exporters have outweighed an uptick in U.S. drilling. Information technology has also contributed to the strong showing from the cyclical side, adding 0.7% on a big day from chipmakers; the PHLX Semiconductor Index is up 1.4%.

On the non-cyclical side, telecom services (-3.2%), health care (-0.9%), and real estate (-0.2%) are all posting losses. However, the consumer staples sector has been able to resist the trend, outperforming the broader market with a 0.5% gain. The space's uptick has stemmed from an upbeat response to Kimberly Clark's (KMB 121.37, +4.39) better than expected earnings report. 

Also on the earnings front, DR Horton (DHI 29.75, +1.01) has jumped 5.5% after reporting better-than-expected earnings and revenues this morning. The name has given a boost to its homebuilding peers, evidenced by the 3.5% increase in the iShares U.S. Home Construction ETF (ITB 28.89, +0.98).

The Treasury market is the last piece to the risk-on narrative, hitting a fresh session low in recent action. The benchmark 10-yr yield is up five basis points at 2.45%.

Today's economic data was limited to December Existing Home Sales:

  • Existing home sales for December decreased 2.8% from November to an annualized rate of 5.49 million units while the Briefing.com consensus expected a reading of 5.55 million.
    • The key takeaway from the report is that inventory constraints, rising prices, and higher mortgage rates remain a key obstacle to stronger sales activity.

  • Net 2017 production is forecast to avg between 300k-310k boepd, excluding Libya. Production is expected to increase 8-12% from the beginning of 2017 to the end of the year as a result of additional rigs in the Bakken, restart of drilling at Valhall, and the start-up of North Malay Basin in Q3.
    • Bakken net production in 2017 is forecast to average between 95k-105k boepd.
  • The co's FY17 capex budget is $2.25 bln, vs. $1.9 bln of actual capex in 2016.

Company Background

Hess is an independent energy company engaged in the exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas. Their portfolio is evenly split between unconventionals and conventionals; U.S. and international; and onshore and offshore. Three quarters of their production is liquids versus gas.

The co's portfolio is focused in five strategic areas: the Bakken Shale in North Dakota and the Utica Shale in Ohio; the Deepwater Gulf of Mexico; Valhall Field in Norway and South Arne Field in Denmark; offshore West Africa — Equatorial Guinea and Ghana; and offshore Malaysia in the Gulf of Thailand. These specific areas represent 83% of reserves and 95% of production.

Technical Perspective

Technically, HES has been in a slump over the last 2-years, but recently emerged with some strength into the end of 2016. It's been giving back some of its December gains here to start a new year, but appears to be finding support around its 200-day and 50-day moving averages in the 56/58 vicinity. In response to earnings, Buyers are looking to resume the trend off the Nov/Dec lows with a push back over $60. Sellers will likely be quick to press back below the 54/56 zone in favor of the bigger picture slump.

Options Activity

Based on HES options, the current implied volatility stands at ~ 32%, which is 27% higher than historical volatility (over the past 30 days). Based on the HES Weekly Jan27 $58 straddle, the options market is currently pricing in a move of ~3% in either direction by weekly expiration (Friday).

Peers include: CEO, SNP, OXY, SU, EPD, CNQ, APA, CLR, CHK, CIE, DNR, KOS, STR, LPI, OAS, HK, GTE, GPOR, EEQ, CRZO, CRK, BCEI, TGA, MCF, PBT, SN, GBR, WPX, ROYL, FPP, MPET, USEG, EAC, GST
