  • [$$] Hyundai Workers on Full Strike for First Time in 12 Years

    SEOUL—Hyundai Motor Co. plants in South Korea were crippled by the first all-out strike by unionized workers in more than a decade on Monday, putting pressure on sliding profits and the supply of some of its best-selling vehicles in the U.S. and around the world.

    South Korea’s largest auto maker saw all of its domestic assembly lines halted early in the day, affecting production of thousands of vehicles across three plants. Production will remain suspended until after midnight, a union spokesman said.

    The workers also plan partial six-hour strikes from Tuesday through Friday, he said.

    The local factories—which comprise Hyundai’s largest manufacturing base globally—accounted for nearly 40% of its global output last year. The strikes affect production of vehicles destined for South Korea as well as the U.S., Middle East and other Asian markets.

    The action marks the first time that Hyundai’s unionized workers, currently totaling nearly

  • How Gilead Dominates the HCV Space

    What Could Drive Gilead’s Valuation in 2016?

    (Continued from Prior Part)

    The journey of the HCV franchise 

    In January 2012, Gilead Sciences (GILD) acquired Pharmasset and got access to sofosbuvir. Later, in December 2013, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved sofosbuvir under the brand name Sovaldi. Sovaldi won approval in the European Union in January 2014.

    In October and November 2014, Harvoni, a combination of ledipasvir and sofosbuvir, was approved by the FDA and the European Union. The launches of Sovaldi and Harvoni in Japan took place in May and September 2015, respectively.

    The United States is a significant market for a Sovaldi-based regimen since it includes ~46% of the total HCV-treated population.

    This journey of value additive products continued with Epclusa, which is a combination of sofosbuvir and velpatasvir. The FDA approved Epclusa on June 28, 2016, and the drug won approval from the European Commission in July 2016. Epclusa’s pricing and reimbursement

    Gold Is Still a Good Hedge When Volatility Rises

    (Continued from Prior Part)

    Market Realist – How 2015 wreaked havoc on the stock market and gold

    Gold prices further slumped in 2015. Gold prices had shed 9.6% YTD and closed at $1,060 on December 30, 2015. The precious metal, which had recorded a double-digit growth rate in January, started dipping in March. The prices had again recorded a positive growth between the end of March and the end of June and remained below the $1,100 mark after November 2015. The average gold price recorded was $1,160.

    The S&P 500 gained 0.3% YTD to close at $2,060.30 on December 30, 2015. The market volatility, as well as the volatility of gold ETFs, had shot up 45% and 15%, respectively, on August 24, 2015. The Dow had lost 1,000 points in early trading, the worst since the global meltdown period. The Dow was down 13% on August 24.

    FedEx's 1Q17 Results Place Spotlight on TNT Acquisition

    FedEx Freight revenues in fiscal 1Q17

    In the previous part, we looked at FedEx Ground’s fiscal 1Q17 revenues and their drivers. In this article, we’ll analyze the fiscal 1Q17 outcomes of FedEx’s (FDX) Freight segment.

    FedEx’s (FDX) Freight segment revenues rose 4% from $1.6 billion in fiscal 1Q16 to ~$1.7 billion in fiscal 1Q17. Higher volumes from SME (small and medium enterprise) customers drove FedEx Freight’s revenues in fiscal 1Q17.

    Although the overall segmental revenue increased, the revenue per LTL (less than truckload) shipment fell 4% due to reduced fuel surcharge revenues and lower weight per package. However, the average daily shipments rose 8% in fiscal 1Q17 on a year-over-year basis.

    On the other hand, weight per LTL shipment in pounds fell 3% in fiscal 1Q17. The revenue per shipment fell 3.6% due to lower weight per shipment.

  • Agrium Sees Merger as Financial Horsepower for Retail Business

    Market Continues to Digest PotashCorp's Merger with Agrium

    (Continued from Prior Part)

    Expanding retail network

    Over the past six years ending 2015, Agrium (AGU) has acquired 272 retail locations. In 2016, the company has already acquired over 65 locations. Growing retail locations require capital. By merging with PotashCorp (POT), Agrium is expected to accelerate the growth in retail business through what Agrium’s CEO Charles Magro calls “financial horsepower.”

    Driving volumes

    Two key sales drivers for fertilizer companies (MOO) such as PotashCorp (POT), Agrium (AGU), Intrepid Potash (IPI), and CF Industries (CF) are prices and volumes. Earlier in this series, we saw that PotashCorp has aggressively worked to lower its potash cost of production to maintain its margins. Through a merger with Agrium, the company pivots its attention to volumes.

    During the joint merger presentation, Jochen Tilk of PotashCorp stated that the company will have access to Agrium’s vast

    Google Trips: Can It Disrupt TripAdvisor’s Dominance?

    (Continued from Prior Part)

    Stock reaction

    Google’s (GOOGL) shares have been mostly flat since its Trips app was released on September 19, 2016. That said, stocks of other OTA (online travel agent) players are trending down. TripAdvisor’s (TRIP) stock has fallen 1.5%, while Priceline (PCLN) has fallen 1.4%, and Expedia’s (EXPE) has fallen by 0.53% since September 19.

    The broader market index tracked by the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) has risen 0.55% during the same period. Since travel is discretionary spending, it also makes sense to compare the stock movement of these online travel players with the Consumer Discretionary SPDR ETF (XLY). XLY has risen 0.33% during the same period.

    Year-to-date performance

    YTD (year-to-date) as of September 19, Google’s stock has risen 5.7%. Priceline’s stock has risen 12% during the same period. Meanwhile, both Expedia and TripAdvisor have been trading in the red. Expedia’s stock has lost 14.5% YTD.

    No Surprise Here: Adobe Beats Estimates in Fiscal 3Q16

    Adobe Marketing Cloud grew 10% in fiscal 3Q16

    Earlier in this series, we discussed Adobe Systems’ (ADBE) fiscal 3Q16 results. We also discussed the performance of its primary operating segments, Digital Media and Digital Marketing. We saw that Creative Cloud and Document Cloud drove growth in Adobe’s Digital Media segment. Marketing Cloud was a key contributor to the Digital Marketing segment’s growth, as we highlighted in our pre-3Q16 results series.

    In fiscal 3Q16, Adobe’s Marketing Cloud revenues grew 10% on a YoY (year-over-year) basis to $404 million. It had ~23 trillion customer data transactions that quarter, compared with ~19 trillion transactions in fiscal 2Q16.

    Marketing Cloud growth exceeded Adobe’ management estimates. In its earnings release, the company stated that “reported Marketing Cloud revenue was a record $404 million, ahead of our Q3 target as a result of accelerated second half

    Is NextEra Energy a Worthy Addition to Your Utility Portfolio?

    (Continued from Prior Part)

    NextEra Energy’s dividend yield

    NextEra Energy (NEE) has paid dividends of $2.61 per share so far in 2016. Currently, it’s trading at a dividend yield of 2.8%, as compared to the average yield among US utilities of 4% (as of September 21, 2016). NextEra’s annual dividend growth has been more than 11% in the past year. It was 9.5% for the past five years.

    Peer comparison

    Duke Energy (DUK), the second-biggest utility by market capitalization, yields 4.4%. Southern Company (SO) yields nearly the same. Both these utilities have almost entirely regulated operations. This factor facilitates stable earnings growth, and stable earnings generally bode well for stable dividends.

    By contrast, NextEra Energy generates significant earnings from unregulated operations. But its earnings are relatively stable because it sells its merchant power under long-term contracts, which gives revenue predictability and
