    Bayer (OTCPK:BAYRY) – Together with Orion Corporation, the company announced that the FDA accepted its New Drug Application and granted Priority Review for darolutamide for the treatment of non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer in the United States. This decision was based on data from the phase III ARAMIS trial – recently, Bayer also submitted an application to the European Medicines Agency and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in Japan. The drug candidate is thought to have peak sales potential in excess of $1 billion.

    Overall, investors need to rely on what is factual and can be referenced. FOTIVDA still outperforms Bayer’s (OTCPK:BAYRY) Nexavar in PFS and ORR. The preliminary OS data is not complete enough for the FDA and that should be acceptable for investors. In fact, the idea the company had not really addressed the issues from the previous CRL would have prevented me from entering a position prior to the PDUFA date. The market overreacted to the NDA delay news as if it was a CRL. Yes, the company has to hold off on submitting, but the management expects to file an NDA before the end of 2019; which would put the PDUFA date in the second half of 2020.

    Wall Street was in a celebratory mood on Monday, with market participants being particularly pleased about signs that the domestic economy could find ways to grow even amid a broader global slowdown. The Dow Jones Industrial Average overcame an opening drop of nearly 250 points to finish higher by 200 points, and other major benchmarks were up by as much as 2%. Yet even with a broad-based rally, some stocks weren’t able to participate. Care.com (NYSE:CRCM), AngloGold Ashanti (NYSE:AU), and Spirit AeroSystems Holdings (NYSE:SPR) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Shares of General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) continue to slump. The stock was off another 1%, a day after falling another eight percentage points. The downturn came after its CEO announced its industrial division will be cash-flow negative in 2019. Shares of PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE: PEP) were off 1% this morning after the stock received a downgrade from Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE: CS). While the Swiss bank called PepsiCo a “high quality” business, it raised concerns about its need to heavily invest over several years into struggling business lines and snack products. It also raised concerns about the ongoing competitive threats in the industry. CS set a price target for Pepsi at $100 per share, which is well below yesterday’s trading price of $116.

    In this week’s episode of Industry Focus: Energy, host Nick Sciple, together with Jason Hall and Tyler Crowe, explain how offshore companies work, where the industry is today, and what investors should watch with these companies. Tune in to learn what sets Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Diamond Offshore (NYSE:DO), Seadrill (NYSE:SDRL), and Ensco (NYSE:ESV) apart from each other, what kind of risk/reward profile each company has to offer, some critical points and trends investors need to know before diving into offshore, and much more.

    Frankly, today’s big drop shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone. The company told us many months ago that common equity investors would only retain 2% — at most — of the company when it completed its bankruptcy proceedings, yet investors continued to pay a price for its stock that, at one point, would have made Seadrill worth nearly as much as competitors Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Diamond Offshore (NYSE:DO), and Noble Corporation (NYSE:NE) combined. But a relatively steady decline in the share price, combined with today’s big drop, seems to be finally putting Seadrill more in line with its peers. 

  • [By Jason Hall]

    On June 27, shares of Seadrill Ltd (NYSE:SDRL), Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc (NYSE:DO), and Ensco PLC (NYSE:ESV) traded up more than 10% at various points. And while they’ve cooled off a bit — up 9.9%, 10.3%, and 8.9%, respectively, at recent prices — they continue to march toward today’s close with big gains. And while not quite as much as the three aforementioned companies, shares of Transocean LTD (NYSE:RIG) and Noble Corporation PLC (NYSE:NE) are showing big days as well, up 6.4% and 7.2% in late-afternoon trading.

Hot Financial Stocks To Watch Right Now

New York City still hasn’t said whether “Fearless Girl” will stay.

The bronze statue, which appeared one year ago opposite the iconic charging bull near Wall Street, is guaranteed a place only through Thursday — International Women’s Day.

Natalie Grybauskas, a spokesperson for Mayor Bill de Blasio, told CNN that the statue will probably stay in place for a few more days. Beyond that, she said, the city expects to announce its plans soon.

State Street Global Advisors, the financial company, installed the sculpture of the defiant girl in front of the bull for International Women’s Day 2017.

At first, she was only supposed to be there a few days. But the sculpture won overwhelming support from the public, and the city decided to extend her permit for a year.

“We’re obviously hopeful that we can arrive at some sort of a placement for her that keeps her in the public domain,” Lori Heinel, deputy global chief investment officer for State Street (STT), told CNN’s Maggie Lake on Thursday.

Top 10 Financial Stocks To Buy For 2019

Getting approved for a mortgage is like running an obstacle course: There are lots of hurdles to overcome and you’ll probably be tired and a bit bruised at the finish line.

Frustratingly for many would-be homebuyers, the race ends early because they have too much debt relative to their income.

Your debt-to-income ratio, or DTI, is the percentage of monthly income devoted to debts, including your future mortgage payment. Too much debt results in a high DTI – and it’s one of the most common reasons for mortgage denial.

While some research shows that borrowers with high DTIs are more likely to struggle with their mortgage payments, others argue that DTI limits have been too strict since the 2008 financial crisis. With higher debt limits, the Urban Institute, a nonprofit research organization, found that 95,000 more mortgages could be approved each year.

Yet you also incur exceptional risk. If you move a bit up the price range and are looking at stocks in the $10-$20 range and want to reduce risk, you’ll need to look for companies with strong underlying businesses that carry substantial opportunity.

Below, you will find out why three Motley Fool contributors see Tencent Music Entertainment Group (NYSE:TME), Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI), and General Electric (NYSE:GE) checking off the boxes.

    Shares of General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) continue to slump. The stock was off another 1%, a day after falling another eight percentage points. The downturn came after its CEO announced its industrial division will be cash-flow negative in 2019. Shares of PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE: PEP) were off 1% this morning after the stock received a downgrade from Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE: CS). While the Swiss bank called PepsiCo a “high quality” business, it raised concerns about its need to heavily invest over several years into struggling business lines and snack products. It also raised concerns about the ongoing competitive threats in the industry. CS set a price target for Pepsi at $100 per share, which is well below yesterday’s trading price of $116.
