    Perrigo surges as Starboard Value's Jeff Smith talks up the stock

    Shares of Perrigo Co. surged Tuesday after Jeff Smith, chief executive officer of Starboard Value, singled out the pharmaceutical company as a good investment. Perrigo has more potential to boost sales through online vendors such as Amazon.com Inc. and the stock is undervalued due to the pricing pressure in its generics business, he said. Perrigo shares jumped 5.1% to $89.37. Altaba Inc. , another of Smith's best ideas presented at the Delivering Alpha conference, also rose 0.5%. Altaba was formed after Verizon Communications Inc. bought Yahoo's internet business. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Verizon's stock set to suffer longest losing streak in 12 years, but BTIG says it looks 'attractive'

    Shares of telecom giant Verizon Communications Inc. slumped 0.5% in afternoon trade, putting them on track to suffer a ninth-straight loss. That would be the longest losing streak since the nine-session stretch ending Oct. 13, 2005. There have been four eight-session losing streaks since then, in May 2017, October 2012, January 2012 and February 2009. Analyst Walter Piecyk at BTIG warned investors against selling into the weakness, saying the stock's relatively high dividend yield, the fact that the stock is trading at the deepest discount to the broader market in years and the belief that concerns over competition ahead of the release of Apple Inc. much-anticipated 10th anniversary iPhone are overblown suggests "Verizon's stock is once again attractive" as third-quarter reporting seasons approaches. Verizon's current dividend yield of 5.1% is the highest among Dow Jones Industrial Average components, while the price-to-earnings ratio of 11.78, according to FactSet, is well below the S&P 500's 21.50. Verizon's stock has shed 14% over the past three months while the Dow has gained 3%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Popular biotech ETF on pace for steepest daily drop in a month

    A popular way to bet on the the biotech sector was trading sharply lower on Thursday and on track to register its worst one-day in a month. The iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF was down 1.8%, led by an about 11% decline in Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals Corp. and Novavax Inc. , with its shares off 6.4% on the session. The drop for the biotech group came amid a broad and sudden selloff in the overall technology sector that put the Nasdaq Composite Index on pace to log it sharpest daily fall since June 9, when the tech sector underwent a similar retreat, fueled on concerns about valuations among some of the group's biggest companies, including Apple Inc. , Amazon.com Inc., and Facebook Inc., which reported better-than-expected earnings late Wednesday. More broadly, the overall market was under pressure but off its worst levels of the day. The S&P 500 index was down 0.3% at 2,469, the Nasdaq Composite was down 0.8%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading modestly higher, fueled by gains in Verizon Communications Inc. , which saw its shares up nearly 8%, more than offsetting a 2.3% decline in Apple's stock.

    Telecom sector on track for biggest one-day gain since 2009

    The S&P telecom sector soared on Thursday and was on track for its biggest one-day percentage increase in more than eight years, boosted by strong results from some of its biggest components. The sector jumped 4.8%, its best day since March 2009, according to FactSet data. Thursday marks the third straight daily increase for the industry, a period over which it has gained about 8%. Despite that, telecom remains one of the laggards of the year, down 8.7% for 2017. The rally came after Verizon Communications Inc. popped 6.9% on the back of second-quarter revenue that beat expectations, as well as an expansion of its unlimited wireless data plan, which helped it recover from a net subscriber loss in the first quarter. AT&T Inc. gained 3.3% on Thursday, building on a rally the shares had on Wednesday, which came in the wake of the company's own results, when it posted a profit that topped analyst forecasts. The S&P 500 dipped 0.4% on Thursday.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.
