06:01 EDTGWPHGW Pharmaceuticals selloff yesterday an overreaction, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer says shares of GW Pharmaceuticals sold off yesterday in response to an abstract posted for the American Epilepsy Society conference in December describing a single center's experience with Epidiolex for seizures. The results support the drug's potent activity in Dravet syndrome, but some investors have concern with the drop-out rate due to inactivity and the lower response rate compared to what has otherwise been described for Epidiolex, Schimmer told investors last night in a research note titled "Over-Reacting To A Tree When The Forest Remains In Good Shape." The dropout rate is likely a result of the center's "highly questionable" practice of stopping drug if seizure reduction doesn't reach 50%, while the lower response rate at one site shouldn't detract from a "much bigger, robust clinical experience spanning multiple centers," Schimmer argues. He reiterates an Overweight rating on GW with a $147 price target. The stock closed yesterday down $5.42 to $82.30.

16:26 EDTHTZ, ANGIStocks end week lower as retail gets routed
Stocks ended the week sharply lower after weak retail earnings reports, highlighted by Macy's (M), were followed by a worse than expected government report on retail sales performance in October. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., retail sales rose 0.1% in the month of October, versus expectations for an increase of 0.3%. When autos and gas are removed, the core reading was up 0.3%, versus expectations for a rise of 0.4%. Producer prices fell 0.4%, versus expectations for them to be up 0.2%. When food and energy are removed, the core reading was down 0.3%, versus expectations for it to be up 0.1%. Business inventories grew 0.3% in September while sales were flat compared to August. Consumer sentiment, as measured by the preliminary print from the University of Michigan survey, improved 3.1 points to 93.1 in November, which was better than the 91.5 reading that was expected. In Europe, data showed that eurozone's economy grew by just 0.3% in the third quarter, which was a slowdown from the 0.4% GDP growth recorded three months earlier and weaker than the 0.4% consensus growth forecast. In China, exports declined for a fourth straight month in October, sliding 3.6%, while imports fell for a 12th straight month, declining 16% in yuan terms. China's foreign-exchange reserves rose in October for the first time in six months, increasing to $3.53T from $3.51T at the end of September, the People's Bank of China reported. Industrial output in China rose 5.6% in October, matching March's reading as the weakest since 2008. Retail sales climbed 11% last month, beating expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of retailers broadly declined following disappointing earnings reports and commentary from a number of department store operators, including Macy's, Nordstrom (JWN) and J.C. Penney (JCP). Weather was cited by a number of them, and analysts also pointed to the continued rise in competition felt by brick-and-mortar retailers from e-commerce players, mainly (AMZN)... Among earnings reporters outside of the retail sector, Viacom (VIAB) and Rackspace (RAX) rose immediately following their reports, while Cisco (CSCO), Priceline (PCLN), Hertz (HTZ), and Advance Auto Parts (AAP) fell right after their own... During the company's investor meeting, McDonald's (MCD) raised its global refranchising target to 4,000 restaurants through 2018 with a new long-term goal to become 95% franchised, announced plans to increase its dividend by 5% and said that after "robust" debate it had decided to not pursue a REIT spin-off transaction for its real estate holdings... Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD) and SABMiller (SBMRY) came to terms on a deal to combine the companies in a transaction worth $107B. In relation to their deal, Molson Coors (TAP) agreed to purchase SABMiller's 58% stake in MillerCoors, the joint venture formed in the United States in 2008, in a deal valued at $12B. Molson Coors was the biggest winner in terms of percentage stock gains immediately following the announcements, rising over 4% on Wednesday... Mylan (MYL) jumped after the company's offer to acquire Perrigo (PRGO) failed, ending a seven-month fight between the two drugmakers. Perrigo Chief Executive Officer Joseph Papa said he was "delighted" that his company's shareholders rejected the offer and the company added that it will immediately commence its previously announced $2B share buyback program, but its shares slid in the wake of the shareholder vote... PayPal (PYPL) shares saw three straight days of losses after the Wall Street Journal reported that Apple (AAPL) is working on a mobile payments service that could compete with the firm's Venmo platform... Angie's List (ANGI) advanced after IAC/InterActiveCorp (IACI), the parent company of HomeAdvisor, made public a $8.75 per share cash buyout offer. Yelp (YELP), which also connects people with local businesses via its web-based and mobile services, also rose following the revelation of the takeout bid for Angie's List... Alibaba Group (BABA) reported blockbuster sales for the 11.11 shopping festival, better known as "Singles' Day."
