Peter Thiel wants to be able to bid for Gawker assets: report
Billionaire Peter Thiel may be looking to buy Gawker.com, the website he helped shut down last year. On Wednesday, Thiel's lawyers objected to the shuttered news site's bankruptcy sale process, claiming he has been unfairly excluded from bidding on Gawker.com's assets, Buzzfeed reported. Those assets include the site itself, along with its article archives. If Thiel were to buy Gawker.com, he could do whatever he chooses with the archives, including deleting them. Last year, the site's parent company, Gawker Media, declared bankruptcy and sold most of its assets to Univision Communications Inc. after it was unable to pay a $140 million verdict in an invasion-of-privacy case involving Hulk Hogan. It was revealed that Thiel bankrolled Hogan's legal case, apparently motivated by a 2007 Gawker story about Thiel's sexuality. A spokesperson for Thiel would not tell Buzzfeed whether Thiel was interested in buying Gawker.com.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Nutanix hits 9-month high as analyst initiates coverage with Street-high price target
Nutanix Inc. shares rallied Wednesday after another analyst initiated coverage of the stock with a buy rating, citing the enterprise-computing company's disruptive offerings that stand to benefit from secular changes in how businesses are buying data center services. Nutanix shares surged 7.7% to $32.53 on volume of more than 3.7 million shares midday, compared with a 52-week average daily volume of 2.8 million shares. Shares, which are up 22% this year, are on track for their highest close since mid-February. In comparison, the Nasdaq Composite Index is up nearly 28% for the year. Needham analyst Jack Andrews started coverage with a $45 price target, citing the company's scalable data center services, history of strong revenue growth, and the gravitation of businesses toward cloud computing. Andrews said that investors perceive Nutanix as a commodity hardware company rather than a data-center operating systems company. "In our view, significant longer term upside exists if investors begin to revalue NTNX as a pure-play software company, which we believe is likely given the true value proposition of its product portfolio and vision," Andrews said in a research note. Earlier in the month, shares rallied after Raymond James raised their rating on the stock. Nutanix is scheduled to report quarterly earnings Nov. 30. With the addition of Needham, 19 analysts cover Nutanix, and of those, 14 have buy or overweight ratings and five have hold ratings, with an average price target of $32.25, according to FactSet. The next highest price target is $40 from Wells Fargo Securities analyst Aaron Rakers.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

NYSE's breadth and volume data suggests investors aren't scrambling to buy stocks
Despite the big, broad rally in the major stock market indexes, breadth readings for the NYSE suggest investors aren't so worried about missing the boat to buy stocks. There are 1,960 stock gaining ground on the NYSE, compared with 925 declining stocks and 146 stock that are unchanged, according to FactSet, which means 64.7% of the stocks traded are rising. But volume of advancing stocks represents just 59.2% of the total volume. That has pushed the NYSE's Arms Index up to 1.434. The Arms Index is a volume-weighted breadth measure, which tends to rise above the equilibrium 1.000 rating when the market falls, as the proportion of volume flowing into declining stocks tends to be higher than the volume flowing into advancing stocks. Basically, Tuesday's Arms reading suggests investors are more worried about missing the opportunity to sell the stocks that are declining than they are about buying stocks that are rising. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is rallying 165 points, or 0.7% and the S&P 500 is gaining 0.7%, both toward record closes.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

SEC charges Long Island town and elected official with municipal bond fraud
The Securities and Exchange Commission charged the town of Oyster Bay and its highest elected official on Tuesday with allegedly defrauding municipal bond investors when it failed to disclose side deals with a local businessman who had contracts with the town. This businessman allegedly cultivated the relationship with the town, then-town supervisor John Venditto and other officials with gifts, bribes, kickbacks, and political support. In return the town of Oyster Bay, New York allegedly agreed to indirectly guarantee four private loans-totaling more than $20 million-for this vendor and failed to disclose the indirect guarantees in connection with any of the 26 securities offerings the town issued between Aug. 2010 and Dec. 2015. The SEC's complaint alleges that Oyster Bay and Venditto deliberately concealed the indirect loan guarantees, including one that could have required the town to make a termination payment of approximately 16% of the town's operating budget -$16 million-within 60 days had the vendor defaulted on the loans. The SEC's investigation is continuing. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York also filed an indictment on Tuesday that included securities fraud charges against Venditto.

UPDATE: Medtronic shares jump 3% premarket after second-quarter profit and sales beats
Medtronic plc said Tuesday it had net income of $2.01 billion, or $1.48 a share, in its fiscal second quarter through Oct. 28, up from $1.12 billion, or 80 cents a share, in the year-earlier period.

Hurricane Maria shaved another $55 million to $65 million off revenue. "Our second quarter financial results are very encouraging, when considered in the context of a quarter in which we faced three hurricanes and the California wildfires," chief Executive Omar Ishrak said in a statement. The company reiterated guidance that is based on a comparable, constant currency basis. Shares jumped 3% premarket, and have gained 11% in 2017, while the S&P 500 has gained 15%.

Oil climbs in electronic trade as ISDA rules that PDVSA and Venezuela defaulted on debts
The International Swaps and Derivatives Association ruled Thursday that Venezuela, as well as state oil company Petróleos de Venezuela SA, defaulted on their debts. ISDA's determination committee will reconvene on Nov. 20 to make a decision on how credit-default swaps, which can be used to protect against nonpayment, will be settled, according to a report from the Financial Times. "This is an evolving story," said Phil Flynn, senior market analyst at Price Futures Group. "The default is clear and there is a real risk that this will lead to a dramatic drop in [Venezuelan] oil production that is well below 2 million barrels a day right now," he said. "This should make it more difficult for refiners to get caught up on distillate supply that is well below normal in the U.S. and Mexico. Not great news at all and [this] will be another reason to not be bearish on crude." December West Texas Intermediate crude was at $55.26 a barrel in electronic trading, above the $55.14 Thursday settlement on the New York Mercantile Exchange.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

GE credit downgraded at Moody's; share pare earlier gains

Four more women describe Roy Moore's unwanted sexual advances
Four more women came forward Wednesday describing unwanted sexual advances from Roy Moore -- three of them when they were teenagers. Two women described their experiences to the Washington Post. One woman said when she was about 18, Moore -- then about 30 -- unexpectedly called her at her high school. The two eventually went out on a date, and she said Moore gave her an unwanted, "forceful" kiss that left her afraid. Another woman said she complained to her supervisor over Moore's behavior toward that same woman when he entered the Sears store that both teens worked at in Gadsen, Ala. "Watch out for this guy," a store manager reportedly told new hires. Separately, another two women told their stories to Alabama's AL.com. One woman said Moore groped her in 1991, when she was married, and the other said Moore asked her out when she was 17. "I just kind of said, 'Do you know how old I am?'" she told AL.com. "And he said, 'Yeah. I go out with girls your age all the time.'" Earlier in the day, Moore's legal team attempted to discredit other women who have accused him of sexual misconduct, calling them part of a partisan attack against his U.S. Senate campaign.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
