MON was upgraded from Neutral to Overweight, JP Morgan said. $128 price target. Risk/reward is attractive, given the Bayer offer.
The market was resilient today. After a late-morning swoon, a nice rally off the lows. Bent, but didn't break -- though late in the day I am seeing something of another fade. The Russell 2000 Index is a relatively superior performer. Banks stronger, though I don't expect a Fed rate hike this week or this year. Baird upgrades shares of Wells Fargo (WFC) . REITs -- dead-cat bounce? The Bad T
Taxable bonds continue their correction in price (and rise in yield). Selected consumer discretionary stocks like Disney (DIS) and Starbucks (SBUX) . (Both on my Best Ideas List, short). Gold. Monsanto (MON) - I don't think the deal will be accepted by regulatory authorities. Autos and auto-related.
Bayer has agreed to purchase Monsanto for $66 billion, or $128 a share, a 20% premium over its previous closing price.
The global bond market, including taxable-bond plays like the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) , non-taxables like the iShares S&P National AMT-Free Municipal Bond Fund (MUB) and high-yield securities like the iShares iBoxx U.S. Dollar High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) . I would not be long any closed-end municipal bond funds or junk-bond funds, e.g. (BGG)  (down $0.15). All bond surrogates. That includes real estate investment trusts like the iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate ETF (IYR) recently placed on Best Ideas List, consumer staples and utilities. Growth stocks like Amazon, (AMZN) , Netflix (NFLX)  and Tesla (TSLA) . Banks, despite the general drop in bond prices. Retail plays, including Home Depot (HD) , Nordstroms (JWN) , Dollar Tree (DLTR) and Dollar General (DG) . The price of crude oil and oil stocks like Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) . Fertilizer companies like Monsanto (MON) and Potash (POT) . Media stocks like Walt Disney (DIS) . Consumer-discretionary stocks, including Starbucks (SBUX) . Consumer staples such as Coca-Cola (KO) . Autos, including Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) . The S&P 500 (SPY) .
Bayer increases its latest offering to entice Monsanto, as regulators look closely at agribusiness mergers.
These names show the downward pull can be beaten with the right set of circumstances, and it happens more often than you might think.
Navistar shares were rallying Tuesday on news of a major stake taken by Volkswagen.
But even if Dow/DuPont merger fails, Dow is in good stead.
