  W.R. Grace upgrade details — to Outperform at Robert W. Baird; tgt raised to $85  (71.00)Robert W. Baird upgrades GRA to Outperform from Neutral and raises their tgt to $85 from $76. They believe GRA is well positioned for EBITDA growth in 2017/2018 given its recent acquisitions and ramp of Takreer, and GRA's strong free cash flow and balance sheet should enable investment in organic growth, future acquisitions, or return of capital to shareholders. Firm's numbers are lower than Street ests, but the 2017 guide should be a de-risking event. They also believe GRA's high-quality Catalyst business is undervalued at current levels, and would be buyers of the stock.

  Achaogen initiated with a Buy at Stifel; tgt $27 — CREating longer-term upside  (17.46)Stifel initiates AKAO with a Buy and price target of $27 as they believe plazomicin represents a revival for aminoglycosides — an antibiotic class once considered a backbone of gram-negative therapy which has been rendered increasingly ineffective against multi-drug resistant (MDR) pathogens due to widespread resistance. They also believe recently announced EPIC and CARE data provide a clear regulatory path forward and establish wholly-owned plazomicin as a desperately needed treatment option in the fight against expanded spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) producing and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), respectively. Firm believes current valuation fails to reflect what they expect to be a disconnect from historical antibiotic launch trajectories and longer-term optionality on the legislative/strategic/pipeline fronts.

 Overnight Summary — World markets rising with the greenback this morning
  • The global equity markets are doing little more than treading water this morning, with a mixed bag across the equity landscape. With that said, US futures are trading on the positive side, with S&P Futures trading near the highs of the session. Most of the currency pairs are weaker against the dollar this morning. The Dollar Index is up 0.8%, thus far and equity markets have seemed to echo its movement overnight.
  • The trading in Asia's major indices was unexciting and saw small net changes across the board. Japanese equities struggled gain any traction on Tuesday, with the Nikkei closing 0.4% lower after suffering from notable strength in the yen against the dollar on Monday. The Shanghai also sputtered throughout the session with traders seemingly uninspired by the lack of participation by PBOC, refraining from adding any liquidity to the markets today.
  • As a side note, the Reserve Bank of Australia met today, but left interest rates unchanged at 1.50%. India's Central Bank is on deck with a policy update due out tomorrow. The Sensex was off by 0.3% with traders taking some money off the table following a 4-day rally.
  • In Europe, the major bourses are trading slightly higher in the early stages of today's action. France's CAC is lagging its regional peers, stymied by BNP Paribas' soft quarter. The French lender is trading ~5% lower and limiting gains across the financial sector. The FTSE is trading 0.4% higher and shrugging off weakness in energy names. BP (-2%) is among the worst stocks of the group after the co posted Q4 results.

Athersys is developing MultiStem, an off-the-shelf cell therapy that promotes tissue repair. The lead indication is ischemic stroke. Existing stroke treatments, which focus on removing the offending blood clot, can only be used in a short window of time, but MultiStem has shown efficacy in a longer time window (24-36 hours) and can thus address far more patients. Athersys' Japanese partner Healios will start a 220-patient pivotal trial shortly. Data is expected in mid-2018. While there is some controversy around the Phase II data, firm believes the trial has a favorable risk:reward in what they see as a blockbuster opportunity.

 Overnight Treasury Summary

Treasuries Slip as Dollar and Stocks Rebound

  • U.S. Treasuries are trading lower this morning as global equities bounced and the U.S. Dollar Index rallied 0.66% to 100.57. On Monday afternoon, Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker said that a rate hike is on the table at the March 15 FOMC meeting although the Fed funds futures market only implies a 9% probability of a hike, according to the CME website. Internationally, the Reserve Bank of Australia held its bank rate at 1.50% and signaled that it may be at the end of its easing cycle. German industrial production unexpectedly fell 3.0% in December and U.K. house prices declined 0.9% in January. The S&P 500 is set to open up 0.22% to 2,297.6 and WTI crude is off by 0.49% to $52.75/bbl., firmly within its two-month range. Gold is up just 0.07% to $1,233/troy oz. as the greenback strengthens

  • International News:
    • Philadelphia Fed President Harker (FOMC voter) said on Monday that a rate hike should be on the table at the March 15 FOMC meeting
      • Harker said that a precondition for a rate hike would be further output growth and strengthening in the labor market, «not just in terms of the job numbers but also seeing continued wage growth and income growth because that will ultimately feed into inflation»
      • Those words have added meaning after last Friday's release of the January employment report showed nonfarm payrolls growing rapidly but wage growth decelerating
      • Harker also said that he is still supportive of three 25-basis point rate hikes in 2017, data dependent
    • The Reserve Bank of Australia held its main policy rate at 1.50% today, as expected, but indicated that further easing is done for the time being
      • The RBA is currently navigating between the Scylla of below-target inflation and the Charybdis of a strong housing market. The RBA's statement noted that lending standards strengthened

  Anavex initiation details — Buy at Noble Financial; tgt $16  (5.10)Noble Financial initiates AVXL with a Buy and price target of $16. The company is valued at $16/per share over the next year. The main investment driver is ANAVEX 2-73 for Alzheimer's disease, as well as ANAVEX 2-73 for Rett syndrome. Firm conservatively assumes that ANAVEX 2-73 will capture ~10% of the estimated market with peak year sales of $6B. They also assess a 20% probability of success for the Rett syndrome program given the positive preclinical data and the market potential for a therapeutic for Rett patients is large and of significant unmet need as there is currently no cure and limited treatment. They assume ANAVEX 2-73 for Rett will capture ~25% of the estimated market in the peak year with sales of $500M.

 Economic Summary: December Trade Deficit slightly lower than expected

Economic Data Summary:

  • December Trade Balance -$44.3 bln vs Briefing.com consensus of -$45.0 bln; November was revised to -$45.7 bln from -$45.2 bln

  • December JOLTS 5.501 M — Jobs Openings (November was 5.522 M).

Upcoming Economic Data:

  • December Consumer Credit due out Tuesday at 15:00 (Briefing.com consensus of $19.4 bln; November was $24.5 bln)

Upcoming Fed/Treasury Events:

  Ferrari target raised to $74 at UBS — Racing toward €1B in EBITDA two years ahead of schedule  (64.50 -0.08)UBS raises their RACE tgt to $74 from $70. RACE guided to ‘17 EBITDA of >€950m—and firm thinks there's high probability that RACE could actually surpass its IPO target of €1B in '17 (2-yrs ahead of plan). 2017 upside largely comes from new car innovation—with the high priced Aperta & 70th anniversary cars to push up ASPs, a full year of 488 at full production speed, and firm's expectation that RACE will refresh its V12 line (Berlinetta) in the NT (perhaps Geneva in March). RACE also offered hints at how it is thinking about targets beyond €1B in EBITDA—including 1) comments that it doesn't see a ceiling at 10k units; 2) more open mindedness to ideas like an SUV (though firm thinks a Dino re-launch is more likely); 3) comments about rollout of electric/hybrid cars over the next few years (with pricing to move up to maintain dollar & margin EBIT levels); Buy.

 Midday Market Summary: Equity Indices Flat at Midday

The major averages have ticked down in recent action, with the S&P 500 (-0.1%) exchanging a slim gain for a slim loss. The Nasdaq (+0.1%) and the Dow (+0.2%) still hold a portion of their early gains, but have also given up some ground amid a recent uptick in the Treasury market.

Demand for U.S. Treasuries has picked up this afternoon, pushing the government-issued debt to a new session high. The benchmark 10-yr yield, which was up two basis points this morning, is currently lower by three basis points at 2.38%.

Sectors are divided fairly evenly with five posting gains and six holding losses. The consumer staples sector (+0.6%) has emerged as the day's leader, with the top-weighted technology sector (+0.4%) just a step behind. Apple (AAPL 131.85, +1.56) has underpinned the tech space's performance again, trading higher by 1.2%.

Industrials (+0.3%) are also in the mix for the top spot on today's leaderboard, with Emerson Electric (EMR 62.49, +2.63) leading the charge. EMR shares have jumped 4.4% after the company reported better than expected top and bottom lines this morning in addition to raising earnings guidance for 2017.

General Motors (GM 35.05, -1.76) also produced a positive earnings report this morning, beating earnings and revenue estimates. However, the earnings beat may have taken a back seat to the company's 3.8% year-over-year decline in January sales. Shares of GM trade lower by 4.9%.

The consumer discretionary sector (-0.1%) has been weighed down by GM and other automakers, joining materials (-0.7%) and energy (-1.6%) in negative territory. The energy space has suffered from a 2.0% loss from crude oil as an uptick in U.S. production, signs of slowing demand growth, and a 0.4% climb in the U.S. Dollar Index (100.20, +0.36) have weighed on the commodity. WTI crude currently trades at $51.92/bbl.

Although the U.S. Dollar Index continues trading in the green, it has backed away from its high. The index has cut its gain in half due to a recent rebound in the Japanese yen (111.90) and the euro (1.0693).

Economic data reported this morning included December Trade Balance and December Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey:

  • The December trade balance showed a deficit of $44.3 billion while the Briefing.com consensus expected the deficit to hit $45.0 billion. The previous month's deficit was revised to $45.7 billion from $45.2 billion.
    • The key takeaway from the report is that it could stir the political trade pot since there were trade deficits recorded with China, the European Union, Japan, Germany, and Mexico. That isn't new, yet there's a new administration that isn't too fond of that dynamic.
  • The December Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey showed that job openings decreased to 5.501 million from a revised 5.505 million (from 5.522 million) in November.

The Consumer Credit report (Briefing.com consensus $19.4 billion), which will be released at 3:00 pm ET, will be the last economic report of the day.

  Caterpillar upgrade details — to Overweight at Barclays; tgt raised to $110  (93.19 +0.32)Barclays upgrades CAT to Overweight from Equal Weight and raises their tgt to $110 from $100. Firm feels investors likely will never see a chance to buy CAT revs with as much upside as in 2017. There's one caveat to that; investors may see a chance to buy even more depressed revenues in 2018. Still, CAT will likely end 2018 on consensus expectations with the worst trend in its history, inclusive of the Great Depression. On firm's well-above consensus 2018 numbers, the same applies. That leaves CAT trading at 17x firm's 2018E EPS, on revs that would be the most below trend of any machinery stock. The obvious issue is that CAT's peak was supported by a massive China investment in fixed assets and by mining spending that was bubbly on top of that.

  Bristow Group target raised to $25 at Barclays — Financing extends liquidity runway, now needs cycle help to delever  (18.32 -0.96)Barclays raises their BRS tgt to $25 from $20 based on 60% reported owned fleet FMV and 7x F2019 EBITDA for UK SAR but believe upside from here may be harder to come by as focus reverts back to fundamentals. While firm has to believe that BRS's near-death experience and CHC's bankruptcy will instill more pricing and contract term discipline in what is a relatively consolidated mission critical service, they worry that shorter, more range-bound O&G cycles will restrain NT offshore activity to tiebacks and stepouts to existing production facilities, limiting new facility additions and thus helicopter demand growth. Beyond cyclical headwinds, firm believes there has been structural demand destruction this downturn following aggressive steps by int'l oil companies (IOCs) to optimize work-forces and crew rotation schedules. What would make them more positive is if BRS can continue to demonstrate share gains from CHC Group, which is set to soon emerge from Ch. 11, and if helicopters held by lessors effectively are removed from the market as shadow capacity, accelerating a supply /demand rebalancing.

 Currency Market Summary

Dollar Reverses Big Gains

  • The U.S. Dollar Index added 0.36% to 100.27 today after trading as high as 100.72 early in the session. The overnight buying interest was driven by three factors. First, Philadelphia Fed President Harker said that a March rate hike is on the table for him and that sent Treasury yields higher along with the dollar. Second, there were more political worries about the eurozone with the IMF potentially not participating in the Greek bailout and traders still fretting about France's upcoming election in April. Third, German industrial production fell by the most since 2009 during December and that unwound some of the optimism that Monday's German factory orders surprise had created. Those concerns faded throughout the course of today's session as Treasury yields moved sharply lower which drove money flows back towards the yen, euro, and British pound. Again, the dollar does remain higher along with the pound and the greenback is broadly gaining against emerging market currencies
  • EUR/USD: -0.44% to 1.0692
    • German industrial production dropped 3.0% m/m in December, missing estimates for modest growth after a 0.5% increase in November
    • France's current account deficit narrowed more than expected to EUR1.1 bln for December from EUR2.8 bln for November
  • GBP/USD: +0.40% 1.2514

    • Separately, Australia's AIG Construction Index rose to a four-month high of 47.7 in January (47.0 in December)
