    GOP health bill boosts hospital, health insurer and drug stocks

    Hospital system stocks rallied as much as 8% on Thursday following the release of the Senate GOP health bill, which appears to be more favorable to hospitals than the House of Representatives bill passed in early May. Tenet Healthcare Corporation shares jumped 8%, Community Health Systems Inc. shares skyrocketed 8.2%, HCA Healthcare Inc. shares rose 3.6% and Universal Health Services Inc. shares lifted 2.6% in midday trade, compared with a 1.6% rise in the Health Care Select Sector SPDR . Health insurer stocks also rose Tuesday, with UnitedHealth Group shares up 1.4%, Aetna Inc. stock rising 1.1%, Humana Inc. shares lifting 1.3% and Anthem Inc. shares up 0.9%, compared with a 0.2% rise in the S&P 500 . The Senate health bill "tries to phase in the pain" of changes to the Affordable Care Act like Medicaid spending cuts, said Spencer Perlman, director of health-care research at Veda Partners, who described the Senate plan as having "the same architecture" but "nicer furnishings." Still, the benefit for hospitals is only in the short-term and thus probably overdone, he said. "Clearly, the Senate bill is viewed as less disruptive than the House bill to the number of people currently receiving insurance," said Stephanie Miller, senior analyst at Height Securities. But "the initial reaction may have oversimplified how different this bill is," she said, predicting that stocks that have risen on the news may be "rebalancing" in the coming days. Drug stocks also rose in Tuesday trade, with the SPDR S&P Pharmaceutical ETF rising 1.7% and the SPDR S&P Biotech ETF rising 1.6%, which could be happening because the health bill has given investors confidence in Republicans achieving another legislative priority, tax reform, Miller said. Shares of the Health Care Select Sector SPDR have risen 8.7% over the last three months, compared with a 3.9% rise in the S&P 500 .

    Movie theater stocks suffer after a disappointing Memorial Day weekend at the box office

    Shares of movie exhibitors and theater chain operators were down Tuesday after the box office suffered its lowest 4-day Memorial Day weekend draw in 18 years. AMC Entertainment Corp. led the decline, falling nearly 5%, while IMAX Corp. fell 4%, Cinemark Holdings Inc. fell more than 2% and Marcus Corp. fell 2%. Regal Entertainment Group's was less severe, falling less than 1%. The box office brought in an estimated $179.0 million over the 4-day weekend, which is the lowest gross for the typically busy weekend since 1999, said ComScore analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Foot traffic at the multiplex, which has been relatively stagnant for years, disappointed over the weekend. Dergarabedian said the slate of movies so far this summer, aside from Walt Disney Co.'s "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," have been poor. Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" topped the holiday box office but received little help from critics, pulling in $77.0 million, according to ComScore estimates. The box office's other new comer, "Baywatch," distributed by Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Pictures pulled in just $23.0 million. So far in the summer season, the box office is down 5.6% compared with the same time frame last year. "The pressure is on right now," Dergarabedian said, as the industry looks to June releases "Wonder Woman" from Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros., Disney's "Cars 3" and "Despicable Me 3" from Comcast Corp.-owned Universal Pictures.

    Paddington Bear franchise finds new merchandise licensing partner in U.S. and Canada

    Bravado, the merchandising and brand management arm of Universal Music Group, said on Wednesday it has entered into a partnership with The Copyrights Group to license the Paddington brand in the U.S. and Canada. The Paddington children's book franchise, created in 1958 by British writer Michael Bond, made its big screen debut in 2015, earning $268 million worldwide. A sequel is expected in theaters later this year. France-based content and media company Vivendi SA , which owns Universal Music Group and The Copyrights Group, acquired the ownership rights for the Paddington brand in 2016 -- with the exception of publishing rights. With the partnership, Bravado will control the licensing of the brand across retail and consumer products in the U.S. and Canada. Shares of Vivendi have gained 6% in the year to date and nearly 9% in the trailing 12-month period.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Shares of Universal Health Services Inc. declined in the extended session Tuesday following a report that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Defense Department have launched probes into the hospital operator. Universal Health Services shares declined 3% to $115.25 after hours.

    Apple and Visa sued by USR over alleged violation of electronic payment patents

    Universal Secure Registry LLC said Monday that it filed complaints against Apple Inc. and Visa Inc. for infringing on its patents for electronic payments and identity authentication. USR seeks unspecified damages. USR's complaint states that Chief Executive Kenneth Weiss was "the first in the space, and the secure payment technology that he developed goes right to the core of Apple Pay." Weiss said that he had approached Apple and Visa in 2010 about a partnership utilizing his technology, and made detail presentations of his patented technology. "USR has set forth facts in the complaint which we believe will lead to discovery that will support claims of willful infringement against both Apple and Visa," Weiss said. Apple's stock has rallied 32% year to date through Friday, while Visa shares have climbed 19% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 5.3%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
