    The stock market lost ground on Monday, sending major market benchmarks lower by more than half a percentage point. The Dow lost its grip on the 20,000 mark in the wake of concerns about economic growth and new U.S. immigration policy, and some believe that the broader geopolitical climate could have a negative impact on global commerce that in turn could start affecting multinational corporations’ business prospects. In addition, bad news from some individual companies weighed on the markets, and Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD), and New Gold (NYSEMKT:NGD) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: Galapagos NV(GLPG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By David Zeiler]

    Bill Patalon’s initial stock pick was Galapagos NV (Nasdaq ADR: GLPG), a Belgian biotech company.

    Patalon was attracted to Galapagos’ strategy to target “orphan diseases,” afflictions that strike rarely and so often go ignored by the Big Pharma companies. He also liked that Galapagos had more than 50 drug discovery programs underway, and that it already had licensing agreements with several bigger players in the industry.

    Galapagos NV (Nasdaq: GLPG) is our big winner so far, gaining 578.8% since Money Morning Executive Editor Bill Patalon shared his recommendation with Money Morning readers in April 2012.

Bill has renewed his recommendation for the Belgian biotech several times over the years, saying in 2016 that it has “an established history of piling on gains.” With an average gain of 110% a year, it’s hard to argue with that.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: Mallinckrodt plc(MNK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Mallinckrodt (MNK) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after its earnings topped the Street consensus but offered commentary that spooked investors.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Shares of Mallinckrodt dropped 9.1% to $52.42, while the S&P 500 rose 0.1%.

    Barclays analyst Douglas Tsao and Morgan Williams callMallinckrodt’s plunge “outsized.” They explain why:

    In our view the sell-off afterMallinckrodt reported CY3Q16 earnings is outsized considering much of the disclosure on the call was largely expected, including specialty generics weakness and the 2017 outlook, which seemed relatively mild. While outsized Acthar contribution to EBITDA may be accounting for some of the sell-off, wed argue that there is benefit to the brand outperforming, especially considering the need to offset Therakos production issues in CY4Q16 and CY1Q17 as well as specialty generics weakness. We recognize some lingering headline risk associated with media reports criticizing the cost of Acthar to Medicare, after CMS released its prescription drug spending dashboard.

    Mallinckrodt’s market capitalization fell to $5.7 billion today from $6.2 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $306 million on revenue of $3.3 billion in 2015.

    This marks the third time in less than two weeks that Mallinckrodt was the S&P 500′s biggest loser.

    Mallinckrodtdropped 2.7% to $51.77 today, while the S&P 500 rose 0.2% to 2,268.88.

    Mallinckrodt was the biggest loser in the S&P 500 for two consecutive days in mid-November, and again after reporting its earnings.

    Mallinckrodt’s market capitalization fell to $5.5 billion today from $5.6 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $489 million on sales of $3.38 billion in fiscal 2016.

    Sell-side analysts continue to defend drug maker Mallinckrodts (MNK) shares on the heel of Citron Researchs report on the company released last week.

    Earlier today, UBS analyst Marc Goodman and his team weighed into the fray, proclaiming that a misunderstood situation creates opportunity.

    Goodman, who rates Mallinckrodt at a buy with a $92 price target, argues that Mallinckrodt is a different breed from other specialty drug makers, with high-quality earnings, sales growth fueled by volume not price hikes and an emerging pipeline we think is not just underappreciated but really not even part of the conversation with most investors.

    Also, he argues that Mallinckrodt continues to be misunderstood by investors.

    Goodman goes into goes into more detail:

    we were surprised this past week by the debate around Acthar’s Medicare exposure (~30% or ~40%), which in our view has little relevance to the overall MNK story. The key debate since the Questcor deal has been Acthar payer coverage and concerns for more barriers andor coverage blocks by the payers. There was reason for concern just 2 years ago, in our view, as several important payers increased barriers. But mgt’s aggressive focus on enhancing clinical and health-economics data to help support better coverage seems to be working and has resulted in improved coverage, which we believe is still not well appreciated.

    Mallinckrodt shares continue to climb today, rising 4.8% to a recent $57.20.

    Mallinckrodt (MNK) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after Citron Research accused the company of fraud.

    Mallinckrodt tumbled 12% to $59.60 today, while the S&P 500 declined 0.2% to 2,176.94.

    Leerink’s Jason Gerberry and Etzer Darout explain the allegations:

    Mallinckrodtshares are down -7-8% based on a short report citing CMS dashboard data which call into question Acthar Gel sales derived from government sources (CMS; Medicaid & Medicare). The report appears to overstate Acthar CMS sales as a percent of total product sales, as the methodology utilized by CMS drug spending dashboard for Medicare spend is based on gross sales, not net., although it’s unclear to what extent Acthar CMS sales are overstated.

    The report suggestsMallinckrodt mgmt understated combined Medicaid/Medicare sales on an investor call, saying it was about a little bit higher than a quarter of the business vs. gross sales on CMS dashboard implying sales were 61% of total Acthar net revenue (an apples to oranges comparison). We dont know the exact net sales of Acthar to Medicare/Medicaid, but we believe it is safe to assume Medicaid, after CPI price penalties had high discounts/rebates and assuming an 80% gross-to-net ratio on the Medicare book ($504m gross) suggests Acthar net sales would be closer to 38-45% range vs. the 61% figure cited in the short-report. Why this may matter Acthar Gel is an old product lacking good randomized, controlled data consistent with most products approved in the modern era. The report appears to be an attempt to call into question whether the government should be paying Acthars average $80-100k net price/patient/year by calling to this to the attention of government figures who have been targeting excessive drug pricing issues. This type of issue became a major headache for Mylan (MYL) investors recently with EpiPen.Mallinckrodt is presenting at a compe

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: Bloomin' Brands, Inc.(BLMN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By CNBC]

    Tony Tribble, Invision/AP
    Forget about Bloomin’ Onions or boneless wings, for many consumers, the choice of where to dine often comes down to a different factor: which restaurant has the best booze.
    “Alcoholic beverages can be a key driver of traffic, differentiation, and loyalty,” said David Decker, president of Consumer Edge Insight. According to the firm, two factors that keep customers coming back are “selection” and “pricing.”
    Consumer Edge Insight recently surveyed restaurant customers to find out which casual-dining spots generated the most loyalty with their alcoholic beverages.
    Taking the top spot for “selection” was Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD), with 29 percent of those surveyed saying they were “most likely to visit it most often due to its good selection of alcoholic beverages.”
    Applebee’s (DIN) took the second spot, with 24 percent, and Outback Steakhouse (BLMN) and T.G.I. Friday’s tied for third place with 22 percent each.
    Prices also keep customers coming back to Buffalo Wild Wings.

    When asked which casual-dining brand they were “most likely to visit most often due to its good prices of alcoholic beverages,” Buffalo Wild Wings came out on top with 30 percent. Chili’s (EAT) was No. 2 at 23 percent, and Ruby Tuesday (RT) was third with 22 percent.
    Buffalo Wild Wings has always made alcohol a part of its experience, even making it part of its tagline: “Wings.Beer.Sports.”
    The chain is the No. 1 account for more than 50 different beer brands and recently launched Game Changer, a new beer in a partnership with Redhook Brewery. Priced between cheaper domestic lagers and pricier craft beers, Game Changer became the fourth-most-popular draft beer at company-owned locations within two weeks of its release.
    “Among casual-dining restaurants, Buffalo Wild Wings is seeing the greatest positive effect in terms of building customer loyalty with its alcohol offerings,” Decker said. “There are many steps other restaurants can take to improve their alcoho
