08:34 EDTTRIPTripAdvisor shares should be bought on any weakness, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer is upbeat on the 2H15 outlook for online travel, due partly to what it says are higher inventories, improving site traffic, and a solid industry backdrop. The firm says that TripAdvisor's site traffic is accelerating, while its mobile conversions appear to be improving. Consequently, the firm is more confident that the company's hotel inventory is selling well. Oppenheimer introduced a $105 price target on TripAdvisor and reiterated an Outperform rating on the name.

07:14 EDTPNKGaming and Leisure Properties agrees to acquire Pinnacle real estate assets
Gaming and Leisure Properties (GLPI) and Pinnacle Entertainment (PNK) jointly announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which GLPI will acquire substantially all of Pinnacle's real estate assets in an all-stock transaction. Under the terms of the agreement, which was unanimously approved by both companies' boards, Pinnacle's operating business and the real property of Belterra Park Gaming & Entertainment will be spun off into a separately traded public company and the real estate assets held by the remaining company will be acquired by GLPI. Pinnacle shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.85 GLPI common shares per Pinnacle share for PropCo. Pinnacle shareholders will also receive one share of OpCo common stock for each share of Pinnacle they own. The agreed-upon exchange ratio gives PropCo an implied enterprise value of $4.75B, implying 12.6x initial year PropCo adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or 13.2x including transaction-related fees and expenses. Pro forma for the transaction, existing Pinnacle shareholders will own 100% of OpCo and approximately 56M shares in GLPI, representing an approximate 27% equity interest in the larger, post-transaction GLPI. Pinnacle's OpCo will continue to own and operate other assets, including Belterra Park Gaming & Entertainment, the Heartland Poker Tour, Pinnacle's interest in Retama Park, gaming licenses, gaming equipment as well as approximately 450 acres of developable land, principally in Lake Charles and Baton Rouge, adjacent to real estate GLPI would acquire. After the close of the transaction, which the companies expect will be completed in the first quarter of 2016, Pinnacle will operate the leased gaming facilities under a triple-net 10-year Master Lease agreement with GLPI that will have five subsequent, five-year extension periods at Pinnacle's option. Pinnacle will initially pay GLPI $377M in rent in the first year after close, which will result in a lease coverage ratio of 1.9x adjusted property earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent/lease expense. GLPI anticipates the transaction will deliver low double-digit percentage accretion to its pro forma adjusted funds from operations per share in the first year after close. Under the triple-net lease structure, GLPI will benefit from the continued revenue growth of Pinnacle's operating assets. The combined REIT expects to continue to distribute at least 90% of its annual taxable income as dividends, and the first full year dividend per share is expected to increase by approximately a low double-digit percentage.

07:08 EDTETRMEnteroMedics' vBloc therapy shows sustained weight loss at 18 months
EnteroMedics announced that 18 month results from the company's ReCharge Clinical Study published in the Journal of Obesity highlights sustained weight loss in patients receiving vBloc Neurometabolic Therapy. Results at 18 months from the ReCharge Study demonstrate both the sustainability of weight loss using vBloc Therapy and the safety profile of the device over time. The ReCharge Pivotal Trial is a randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled, multicenter pivotal clinical trial of vBloc Neurometabolic Therapy in 239 patients with obesity. At 18 months, the gap between the vBloc Therapy Group and the Sham group widened, with the vBloc Therapy group sustaining their weight loss at 23.5% EWL, compared to a significant excess weight regain in the Sham control group which had dropped to 10.2% EWL at the same time point. The safety profile of vBloc Therapy remained favorable at 18 months.
