Colgate-Palmolive's stock surges as analyst sees 'rare opportunity' to buy
Shares of Colgate-Palmolive Co. ran up 3.4% toward a 2 1/2-month high in midday trade Monday, after the consumer products company was upgraded at Morgan Stanley, citing valuation and expectations of a re-acceleration in sales growth. Analyst Dara Mohsenian raised his rating to overweight from equal weight, and lifted his stock price target to $84 from $75. In a recent survey of investors, Mohsenian said Colgate-Palmolive scored the lowest on sentiment among the mega-cap consumer staples companies covered, which likely stems from three-straight quarters of sales growth disappointments and subpar earnings quality. But Mohsenian said he believes revenue growth will accelerate given easier comparisons and a rebound in emerging markets, at a time when the market is "mispricing" the company's strategic options and competitive position. "We see a rare opportunity to buy a well-positioned business at a valuation level close to structurally less-attractive peers, as [Colgate-Palmolive's] topline slowdown vs. peers has driven stock underperformance," Mohsenian wrote in a note to clients. The stock has lost 3.1% over the past three months, while the SPDR Consumer Staples Select Sector ETF has eased 2.2% and the S&P 500 has gained 2.2%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Health care sector falls as likelihood of ACA repeal rises; UnitedHealth's stock leads Dow losers
The health care sector traded broadly lower Tuesday, amid concerns over the potential effects of the Graham-Cassidy bill, which some analysts say is becoming increasingly likely to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF shed 0.9% in afternoon trade, with 56 of its 62 components trading lower. Among the XLV's most heavily-weighted components, UnitedHealth Group's stock dropped 1.8% to pace the Dow Jones Industrial Average's decliners. The price decline of $3.61 was shaving 25 points off the Dow, which was up 44 points. Analyst Ana Gupte at Leerink Research said the bill could lead to "greater earnings downside in the near term than previous House and Senate bills for ACA-levered stocks." Among companies that Gupte said are at particular risk, shares of Centene Corp. slumped 4.6% and Molina Healthcare Inc. gave up 6.1%. Elsewhere, shares of Aetna Inc. fell 3.4%, Humana Inc. slid 3.2%, Cigna Corp. declined 1.9% and Anthem Inc. was down 2.0%. Gupte said diversified managed care organizations (MCOs) like Humana and Cigna are more defensive, though exposure should be manageable for UnitedHealth, Aetna and Anthem. The XLV has gained 4.3% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has tacked on 2.2%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Disney price target cut at UBS as company faces new streaming costs, impact of Hurricane Irma
Analysts at UBS lowered their 2017 and 2018 earnings estimates for Walt Disney Co. , also dropping the 12-month price target to $122 from $126 on Friday after Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger told investors that the company's earnings growth would be stagnant. During a Bank of America media, communications and entertainment conference on Thursday, Iger told those in attendance that 2017 earnings would be roughly in line with the prior year's earnings, lowering expectations from previous guidance of modest growth. Disney shares took a 5% slide during intraday trading on Thursday following Iger's comments. The lower earnings expectations, Iger said, are due, in part, to expenses tied to Disney's BAMTech investment for its stand alone streaming service and impacts Disney parks are seeing from Hurricane Irma. Lead UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson also mentioned in a note to investors lower ratings at Disney's ABC network and tough content and licensing comparisons. "Many investors are questioning how Disney's valuation can expand while estimates are coming down due to investments in the future," Mitchelson wrote, noting the irony as investors have demanded media companies stop licensing content and build streaming platforms of their own. "This is compounded by the uncertainty as to the pace of decline of the pay TV bundle and the impacts of video fragmentation. As Disney officially starts its streaming shift, Mitchelson said it's critical that ESPN demonstrate pricing power, that cable losses are shored up by virtual multichannel video programming distributors, that content and the parks business continues executing, and that Disney displays cost discipline. Disney shares have declined nearly 7% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 index is up 10% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up more than 10%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Insurance stocks clobbered as investors await loss estimates for hurricane Harvey
Insurance stocks were mostly lower Monday, as investors awaited the initial estimates of losses from hurricane Harvey, which devastated Texas over the weekend. "While it is early days and Harvey is expected to bring even more rain and flooding for another week, our best guess at this point is Harvey could result in $10-$20bn of industry insured losses making it one of the top 10 most costly hurricanes to hit the U.S.," J.P. Morgan analyst Sarah DeWitt wrote in a Monday note. CreditSights analysts said the most vulnerable lines of business include allied lines, commercial and private auto, commercial multiple peril, homeowners and farmowners multiple peril, crop mulitple peril, private crop, fire, flood and inland marine. Among the companies that are most exposed to the region, Allstate Corp. shares fell 1.7%, Progressive Corp. shares were down 2.5%, Chubb Ltd. fell 1.6%, CNA Financial Corp. was down 0.5% and Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. was down 2%. RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd. fell 1.8% and Everest Re Group Ltd. fell 2.5%. Dow Jones Industrial Average component Travelers Cos. Inc. fell 3%, to shave about 20 points off the price-weighted index.
