Gevo Inc GEVO Stock News

Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO)

Gevo has been on my radar for some time now. As a result, I often get emails from investors interested in what’s coming next. As the company has been through a blackout period, we haven’t heard much, and I haven’t been able to offer any insight. However, there’s a lot going on today. Below, we’ll talk about what’s happening with GEVO.




GEVO To Report Earnings

Today was scheduled to be an interesting day weeks ago when Gevo released information that it would be releasing its earnings today after the bell. With everything the company has been working on throughout the quarter, investors are overwhelmingly interested in what’s going to happen with earnings. My personal opinion is that they will be overwhelmingly positive. However, only time will tell.

Earnings Isn’t The Only Big Story

On Friday night, I went into the weekend content with the fact that earnings was coming soon and my opinion that the report will be positive. However, I had no idea that another big announcement was going to be made. Earlier today, GEVO announced that the first commercial flight using the company’s cellulosic renewable alcohol to jet fuel (ATJ) is expected to take place today. The flight will go from Seatle to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

In a statement, Pat Gruber, the CEO at GEVO, had the following to offer:

This first of its kind flight demonstrates Gevo’s commitment and ability to convert next generation cellulosic feedstocks into fungible hydrocarbons. We are pleased that we had the opportunity to prove, through the NARA project, that cellulosic sugars from wood can be used to successfully make commercial jet fuel. Wecongratulate all of our fellow NARA partners and thank the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture, for its unwavering support in the pursuit of renewable jet fuel. I also thank Alaska Airlines, who continues to be a great partner.”

What I’ll Be Watching Ahead

I believe that after-hours and into tomorrow we’re going to see some strong movement in GEVO. I’m expecting that earnings will be positive, and it’s clear that the ATJ news was positive. The only thing I’m concerned about is the fact that the company still needs to focus on building capital. This may happen through a public offering, causing a bit of a drop in value. Nonetheless, things are looking great at the moment.

Southwestern Energy Company SWN Stock News




Southwestern Energy Company (NYSE: SWN)

Southwestern Energy Company was off to a relatively normal start in the market today. However, minutes ago, the stock turned volatile as rumors started to spread. Today, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what to watch for with regard to SWN ahead.

What We’re Seeing From SWN

Earlier this morning, things were off to a relatively normal day for Southwestern Energy. However, that all changed as rumors started to surface causing volatility to start. The stock made it up to $9.75 per share before falling back down. At the moment (10:21), SWN is trading at $9.62 per share after a gain of $0.07 per share (0.73%) thus far today.

Why We’re Seeing The Movement

Any time we see movement like this on a stock, the CNA Finance team starts digging to see what’s causing it. In this particular case, we dug and dug, but no fundamental news was available. Then, we found our way to social media to see what investors were saying. That’s when the Aha moment came.

Essentially, SWN was moving this way on acquisition rumors. At the moment, there is a ton of takeover chatter on social media causing excitement.

What To Watch For

Moving forward, we’ll be watching to see how the Southwestern Energy Company takeover chatter plays out. Of course, if a takeover does indeed happen, this could prove to be a huge opportunity. With that said, we suggest that you keep a close eye on SWN as well.

Update: $CVX is rumored to be the buyer.

Eli Lilly And Co LLY Stock News


Eli Lilly And Co (NYSE: LLY)

Eli Lilly is having a rough day in the market today, and for good reason. The company has been involved in several pharmaceutical price increases, an activity at which Bernie Sanders took a hit today. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what we can expect to see from LLY ahead.

What We’re Seeing From LLY

As mentioned above, Eli Lilly isn’t having the strongest day in the market today. In fact, the stock has been trading in the red for the entire session and recently dove to lows following a message from Bernie Sanders. Currently (1:09), LLY is trading at $72.74 per share after a loss of $1.10 per share (1.49%) thus far today.

Why We’re Seeing The Declines

The recent spike downward has a lot to do with Eli Lilly’s actions with regard to price increases. Earlier this morning, Bernie Sanders said the following in a tweet:

Why has the price of Humalog insulin gone up 700% in 20 years? It’s simple. The drug industry’s greed.”

With Humalog being an LLY product, the stock is taking a hit, as pricing pressure could be coming.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, I’m not expecting this to have any long-term effect on the stock. The pricing issue has been raised several times through the entire biotech industry over the past couple of years. If reform happens, then we can expect declines, but at the current state, reform isn’t anywhere near.

Intrepid Potash Inc IPI Stock News




Intrepid Potash, Inc. (NYSE: IPI)

Intrepid Potash is having a strong day in the market today, and for good reason. The company announced key information with regard to plans moving forward today. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to IPI ahead.

What We’re Seeing From IPI

As mentioned above, Intrepid Potash is having an incredibly strong day in the market today. The gains started in pre-market trading and have continued throughout the trading session thus far. At the moment (11:09), IPI is trading at $1.19 per share after a gain of $0.15 per share (14.42%) thus far today.

Why We’re Seeing The Gains

As soon as we saw how well IPI was doing in the market today, the CNA Finance team went digging to find out why. The reasons pretty much jumped out at us. Apparently, the company has moved forward with a new credit pact. On top of that Intrepid Potash is in the process of reviewing strategic alternatives.

We know that when a company says the two words strategic and alternatives together, as Intrepid Potash did today, investors get excited. Ultimately, they are looking for one of those alternatives to be an acquisition. Will that be the case for IPI? Only time will tell!

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

When a company is in the process of exploring strategic alternatives, they update investors throughout the process if they’re smart. With that said, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on IPI to see how this develops. As always, any new developments will be emailed to our subscribers, so, don’t forget to subscribe for free below!

Gevo Inc GEVO Stock News
[adrotate group=”8″]

Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO)

Gevo has had a rough time in the market over the past couple of months, and with no news available for investors, I’m starting to get inundated with emails. It seems like investors want an update. However, there’s a good reason we’re not seeing news right now. Today, we’ll talk about that reason, why patience is a virtue, and what I’m expecting from GEVO ahead.

Have Patience With GEVO

As mentioned above, I’ve received several emails over the past couple of weeks asking me if I had any updates with regard to Gevo. The answer? Well… no, I don’t. However, there’s a good reason for that.

GEVO is scheduled to report its earnings on November 3rd. That’s just days away. In general, we’ll see a blackout period in press releases and things of that nature prior to earnings releases. These periods can last weeks, or even more than a month. Nonetheless, it doesn’t mean that something is wrong, it simply means that the company is preparing to release earnings.

Why Now May Be A Great Time To Get In On The Stock

Because GEVO hasn’t released much news as of late, we’ve seen steady declines in the value of the stock, as investors are left scratching their heads and wondering what’s happening. However, this presents a bit of a compelling opportunity.

At the end of the day, there’s a good reason that Gevo hasn’t released any news recently. This doesn’t discount previous accomplishments by the company, nor the fact that many analysts seem to be undermining revenue forecasts this quarter, especially with isobutanol blends now in the market.

With that said, I’m expecting the report to be relatively positive. Ultimately, this will refuel investors and likely send Gevo shares soaring. However, we also know that the company needs to raise more capital. If they do so in a way that dilutes shares, at the same time as releasing earnings, things could go bad quickly.

What I’m Expecting To See Ahead

Moving forward, I have a relatively bullish opinion of what we can expect to see from GEVO. While the stock is trading at lows at the moment, I believe that we’re going to see very good news come November 3rd. Also, in the near term, the company will likely face volatility as fund-raising efforts are necessary. Nonetheless, in the long run, GEVO is likely to climb!

Barrick Gold Corp ABX Stock News

Barrick Gold Corp. (NYSE: ABX)

Barrick Gold was off to a relatively normal start in the market today. However, that is changing quickly. Less than 10 minutes ago, a high momentum spike started on the stock, pulling it out of the red and pushing it into the green. Today, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what we can expect to see from ABX ahead.

What We’re Seeing From ABX

As mentioned above, Barrick Gold was starting the day off in a relatively normal way. The stock was up in the morning, down in the afternoon. However, we started to see a big spike in the value of the stock just minutes ago. Currently (1:16), ABX is trading at $16.95 per share after a gain of $0.10 per share or 0.59% thus far today.

Why We’re Seeing The Gains

The reason for the gains is relatively simple. Minutes ago, a letter started to circulate coming from James Comey, the Director of the FBI. In the letter, Comey explained that he is looking further into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. The idea is that the FBI may pursue charges.

As a result, we’re seeing big declines in the market, with the Dow falling 100 points in about 15 minutes. Because ABX focuses on gold, and gold is a safe haven investment, this is great news for the stock.

What We Can Expect To See Ahead

Moving forward, my opinion with regard to ABX is becoming more and more bullish. With James Comey re-opening investigations into Clinton, we now have the first Presidential candidate that is under federal investigation. This will likely lead to big concerns with regard to the economy and the market. Ultimately leading to bigger gains for Barrick Gold stock.

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation APC Stock News

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) | Blackstone Group LP (NYSE: BX)

Anadarko Petroleum was having a normal day throughout most of the trading session today. However, minutes ago, the stock started spiking in a big way. After a quick search, we believe we’ve found the reason. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what we can expect to see from APC ahead.

Trade smarter and make more money with Tradespoon!

What We’re Seeing From APC

As mentioned above, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation was having a normal day in the market through most of the trading session. However, minutes ago, the stock started climbing in a big way. Currently (3:21), APC is trading at $61.88 per share after a gain of $0.98 per share (1.61%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Headed Up

When we saw the spike in value, the CNA Finance team started digging to see why it was happening. After a short search, we found something good. According to recent reports, BX is in talks with regard to acquiring the South Texas assets owned by APC.

This could be a very big deal. It could mean that Blackstone would be handing over between $3 billion and $3.5 billion to acquire the assets. According to the rumor, BX is partnering with Sanchez Energy (SN) for the acquisition of APC. So, if that part is there, the capital is definitely available.

What We Can Expect To See Ahead

While the rumors suggest that a deal may be coming down the line in as little as a few weeks, it’s important that we keep in mind that this is just a rumor at this point. There has been no confirmation from Anadarko Petroleum, Blackstone, or Sanchez. With that said, I’m expecting to see continued gains in the short term as excitement continues to move the needle.

However, the mid-term view on APC will largely depend on how the deal evolves. So, keep an eye on a possible deal between BX, SN, and APC when trading ahead, as this will largely dictate movement.

Amyris Inc AMRS Stock News

Amyris Inc (NASDAQ: AMRS)

Amyris investors got more good news today, as the company released information that it has entered into yet another definitive agreement. Today, we’ll talk about the agreement, how the stock reacted to the news, and what we can expect to see from AMRS ahead.

Trade smarter and make more money with Tradespoon!

AMRS Executes Yet Another Definitive Agreement

As mentioned above, Amyris bulls got more good news today. The company announced that it has entered into definitive agreements for its strategic partnership and financing with a global nutraceuticals leader. The agreements surround the expansion of a new neutraceuicals market.

In the announcement, AMRS said that it expects this new market to represent a strong amount of revenue. In fact, the company is expecting that the product will likely represent between $40 million and $50 million annually. Of course, this will come once the product is developed and scaled.

Also, along with the agreements, AMRS has secured more financing. In fact, the agreements include an unsecured credit facility of $25 million. The credit facility will have a five-year maturity. In a statement, John Melo, President and CEO at Amyris, had the following to offer:

We are very pleased with the significant traction we are experience in the first market we launched with this partner earlier this year and the speed by which we’ve been able to execute the expanded agreement into our second nutraceutical market with this parter. We expect the second nutraceuticals product to reach full scale production in 2019 and combined with our first product with this partner we expect will generate approximately $100 million annually… We expect 2017 revenue from the first targeted product of around $40 million…. We are very pleased with how well our partnership business model is delivering and the strategic nature of our partners.”

What We’re Seeing From The Stock

While we did see a pop in value early on in the day, AMRS isn’t having quite the reaction I would expect to see from such positive news. In fact, at the moment, the stock is in the red. Currently (11:23), the stock is trading at $1.06 per share after a loss of $0.01 per share (0.93%) thus far today.

What We Can Expect To See Ahead

The declines that we’re seeing an Amyris today are, in my opinion, an opportunity. What we’ve seen from the company over the past year has been nothing short of amazing. We’ve seen product launches as well as contracts in fragrances, flavors, nutraceuticals, energy, and more. We’ve seen action! At the end of the day, AMRS is working incredibly hard and the company’s stock price is likely to benefit as a result.

MGP Ingredients MGPI Stock News

MGP Ingredients Inc (NASDAQ: MGPI)

MGP Ingredients is having an incredibly rough time in the market at the moment. While the stock started the day off on the normal trend, minutes ago we started to see an incredible spike downward. Here’s the What, Why, and What’s Next when it comes to MGPI…

Trade smarter and make more money with Tradespoon!

What’s Happening With MGPI?

As mentioned above, MGP Ingredients started the day off like any other day. Not much movement in either direction, but in the green nonetheless. However, minutes ago, we started to see some downward movement, and that movement has gained momentum incredibly quickly. While the stock was trading in the green about a half hour ago, MGPI is now (11:02) trading at $34.57 per share after a loss of $5.27 per share, or 13.23%.

Why Is The Stock Falling?

After seeing the declines early on, the CNA Finance team decided to investigate to see what was happening. Unfortunately, Kansas City Star and other local news outlets close to the company’s plant in Atchison, Kansas were releasing reports. Unfortunately, these reports say that MGPI suffered a chemical spill that prompted many people in the area to be evacuated.

What’s Next

The truth is that we know very little about the chemical spill at the moment. This could be massively bad or not that bad, depending on the details. With that said, I am expecting to see further short-run declines. However, the rest of the outlook will be largely dictated by the details of the chemical spill reported minutes ago, so the CNA Finance team will be keeping our eyes on the news, and we strongly suggest that you do the same for any clues as to what’s next.
