Acacia Communications ACIA Stock News




Acacia Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACIA)

Acacia Communications was off to a relatively rough start in the market, making it into the red in early trading. However, minutes ago, the stock started to spike, and it is now well into the green. Today, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what we can expect to see from ACIA ahead.

ACIA Is Gaining

As mentioned above, Acacia Communications wasn’t having the best start to the day today, trading in the red right off of the bat. However, the stock seems to be making somewhat of a recovery as a spike has pushed its value into the green. At the moment (9:44), ACIA is trading at $68.51 per share after a gain of $0.16 per share, or 0.23%.

Why We’re Seeing The Gains

As soon as we noticed the spike in value on ACIA, the CNA Finance team went digging to see exactly what was causing the movement. Through our investigation, we found no fundamental news from the company that would cause such movement. However, we did find something.

At the moment, there is quite a bit of chatter on social media surrounding Acacia Communications. According to the rumors, the company has won a new contract. However, the rumors don’t provide details about the contract or information on who it is with.

What We’ll Be Watching Ahead

First and foremost, it’s important to keep in mind that the movement on ACIA is being caused by a rumor. Often times, rumors don’t come to fruition. In fact, we have an example of that from last week when rumors went around that ACIA was going to be acquired. Nonetheless, we’ll be watching for further acquisition news as well as updates with regard to the current rumor, and, given the potential of these stories to move the needle, you should too!

Update: The chatter is now saying that the contract won was with Costco. Again, this is unconfirmed, and there has been no release from ACIA surrounding the news.

Angie's List ANGI Stock News




Angie’s List Inc (NASDAQ: ANGI)

Angie’s List wasn’t having the best day in the market today. However, that changed quickly minutes ago. We went digging and found the cause. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to ANGI ahead.

What We’re Seeing From ANGI

As mentioned above, Angie’s List wasn’t off to the best trading session today. In fact, the stock was trading in the red for most of the day. However, minutes ago, the stock started to spike in a big way. At the moment (2:13), ANGI is trading at $7.86 per share after a gain of $0.29 per share or 3.83% thus far today.

Why We’re Seeing The Spike

As always, as soon as we noticed the spike on ANGI, the CNA Finance team started to dig to uncover the cause of the movement. While the company hasn’t released any fundamental news that would cause such a dramatic spike in value, we have found something.

At the moment, there are reports that there are multiple buyers for Angie’s List. Essentially insinuating that the company is going to be acquired. The reports first came from Street Insider, and are now flooding social media. As a result, the excitement is sending ANGI skyward.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, we’ll be keeping a close eye on the developments in the bid for ANGI. At this point, Street Insider, a well respected publication has reported that multiple bidders are interested. That adds validity to the rumors and suggests that an acquisition is indeed coming. As a result, I’m expecting to see some exciting news out of Angie’s List relatively soon!

Update: ANGI has been halted on the acquisition spike.

LPL Financial LPLA Stock News




LPL Financial Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: LPLA)

LPL Financial Holdings was off to a normal start to the market. However, shortly into the trading session, the CNA Finance team noticed a spike in the value of the stock. We believe that we know why the movement is happening. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we can expect to see from LPLA ahead.

What We’re Seeing From LPLA

As mentioned above, LPL Financial was off to a relatively normal start in the market. However, just minutes ago, the stock started to scream upward. Currently (10:31), LPLA is trading at $31.58 per share after a gain of $0.62 per share (2.00%) thus far today.

Why We’re Seeing The Gains

As soon as we noticed that spike on the stock, the CNA Finance team went digging to see what was causing the movement. We believe we’ve found the culprit. While there has been no fundamental news released with regard to the company directly, there is a rumor circling around.

The rumor is simple. Many believe that LPLA is in talks with private equity buyers. This could mean a few different things. First, the company is looking for funds, and equity seems to be a good way to get them. Another option, and perhaps why the stock is climbing so much, is that the private equity buyers may want to take the company private. Nonetheless, this is all speculation, as there has been no official news reported in connection to the story.

What We Should Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, investors should keep a close eye on what’s going on with the private equity firm. With the rumor surfacing, we can just about bet that we will see some news on this relatively soon. So, if you’re investing in LPL Financial (LPLA), this is going to be the story to watch.

Casey's General Stores CASY Stock News




Casey’s General Stores Inc (NASDAQ: CASY)

Casey’s General Stores was off to a relatively rough start in the market today. However, minutes ago, the CNA Finance team noticed a spike in the value of the stock, and we believe that we’ve found the reason why. Today, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what we can expect to see from CASY ahead.

CASY Starts To Spike Toward The Green

As mentioned above, Casey’s General Stores was off to a rough start in the trading session today. However, minutes ago, the stock started to spike upward, and given the momentum involved here, we could see the stock make it to – and past – the green. At the moment (3:08), CASY is trading at $113.11 per share after a loss of $2.04 per share (1.78%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Spiking

While the stock is in the red, there’s no doubt that CASY has been spiking higher over the past few minutes. The reason is relatively simple. In the social media space, we’re starting to see quite a bit of chatter around the stock.

According to rumors circulating in social media, there’s takeover interest in the company. As investors, we know how exciting takeovers can be. As a result, Casey’s General Store shares are climbing in value.

What To Watch For Ahead

Moving forward, traders should keep a close eye on the story surrounding the acquisition of CASY. However, keep in mind that nothing has been confirmed. At the moment, this is just rumors. At the end of the day, we’ve seen quite a few rumors of acquisitions and more fall through than actually end up happening. Nonetheless, the story is likely to continue to cause movement in the market, so it will be important to watch!

Netflix NFLX Stock News

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX)

Netflix is having a strong day in the market today, and it seems as though the day is getting stronger with recent spikes. After a quick search through the web, we believe that we’ve found the reason. Today, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why it’s gaining, and what we can expect to see from NFLX ahead.

What We’re Seeing From NFLX

As mentioned above, Netflix was off to a relatively strong start to the day already. However, minutes ago, the stock started to spike higher. At the moment (11:36), NFLX is trading at $1.94 per share after a gain of 1.53% thus far today.

Why Is The Stock Gaining

When we noticed that NFLX was spiking, the CNA Finance team did some digging to see if we could dig up any news. While the company hasn’t released anything fundamental that would lead to such strong gains, we believe we’ve found the culprit.

On social media, we’re seeing quite a bit of chatter surrounding a possible takeover. At the moment, this chatter is overwhelmingly vague. There is no news as to who might be the buyer, how much they’re willing to pay, or anything else. All we’re seeing is excitement surrounding the concept of a Netflix takeover.

What’s Next?

Moving forward, I have an overwhelmingly bullish opinion of what we can expect to see from NFLX, regardless of the takeover. Don’t get me wrong, if a takeover happens, it will be great. Not to mention, there are plenty of companies like Disney, Amazon, and others that would benefit from such a move.

However, my view on NFLX goes far beyond that. The company is seeing stronger than expected user growth, and that’s always a good thing. With recent moves the company has made, I’m expecting for this to continue. Therefore, I’m expecting to see gains on Netflix ahead!

Update – The acquisition rumors are getting deeper. According to updates, Disney is the buyer and the price is $145 per share. Rumor yet to be confirmed.

Time Warner Inc TWX Stock News

Time Warner Inc (NYSE: TWX)

Time Warner has been a very interesting stock to follow over the past week. First off, we learned that AT&T had signed a definitive agreement to purchase the company. However, shortly thereafter, we learned about government hurdles that the acquisition would have to make it over. Now, more acquisition news is happening and it seems to be exciting investors. Today, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why we’re seeing gains, and what we can expect to see from TWX ahead.

What We’re Seeing From TWX

As mentioned above, Time Warner is having a relatively strong day in the market today as news with regard to the merger between the company and AT&T. Currently (10:47), TWX stock is trading at $88.69 per share after a gain of $0.39 per share or 0.44%.

Why The Gains Are Happening

The gains on the TWX are coming after a big announcement with regard to the AT&T merger. Since the announcement of the merger, we’ve heard quite a bit about the possibility of it being blocked for fear of several governmental issues. However, today, we learned that the FCC will maintain jurisdiction over the merger.

Ultimately, this means that Time Warner and AT&T will likely merge as the FCC isn’t worried about most of the issues that were brought up. With the news that the FCC is maintaining jurisdiction, investors are excited that TWX will actually complete the merger.

What We Can Expect To See Moving Forward

Moving forward, my opinion with regard to TWX is started to shift in the positive direction. With today’s news, I’m expecting for the merger to go through without a hitch, helping to return large amounts of value to shareholders.

GCI/TRNC Deal May Not Go Through

While the reports are largely unconfirmed at the moment, there’s quite a bit of chatter that the deal made between Gannett Co Inc and tronc Inc may not go through. The chatter online suggests that the deal is running into bank funding issues. As we all know, without the funds, the deal will fall apart, which isn’t good for GCI or TRNC.

Throughout the day today, both GCI and TRNC have been seeing declines, with a big spike downward happening recently as the story of the deal falling through started to circulate. Currently (3:05), Gannett Co Inc stock is trading at $8.53 per share after a loss of $1.37 per share (13.84%) thus far today. On the other side of the coin, tronc Inc stock is trading at $13.03 per share after a loss of $3.97 per share (23.35%) thus far today.

CBS Corporation CBS Stock News

CBS Corporation Common Stock (NYSE: CBS)

CBS Corporation was off to a relatively normal start in the market today. That is, until about an hour into trading. Minutes ago, the stock started to skyrocket in a big way. We think we’ve uncovered the reason. Today, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why we’re seeing the movement, and what we can expect to see from CBS ahead.

What We’re Seeing From CBS

As mentioned above, CBS was off to a normal start to the day in the early morning hours. However, that has changed, as the stock has found its way from the red to the green over the past few minutes. Currently (10:32), the stock is trading at $56.99 per share after a gain of $0.21 per share (0.37%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Gaining

While CBS hasn’t released any fundamental news with regard to the company, there is a big story going around. At the moment, the CNA Finance team is seeing quite a bit of chatter in social media about a possible takeover. According to the rumors, Comcast (CMCSA) is interested in acquiring CBS. The rumors do not include a per-stock price for the possible transaction.

What We Can Expect To See Ahead

First and foremost, it’s important to remember that the movement is being caused by rumors. There is no confirmation on either side of the coin that Comcast is indeed interested in acquiring CBS. With that said, the concept of the acquisition makes sense, and, if it happens, the stock is going to soar. So, keep a close eye on the story as it unfolds and make sure to subscribe below for updates!

Herbalife HLF Stock News

Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE: HLF)

Herbalife has gone through quite a bit over the past 2 days. In recent news, the company has been alleged to be part of a money laundering ring. For some reason however, mainstream media seems to be staying away from the story. However, after the steep fall in stock value that we’ve seen from the stock, I believe that it is well worth talking about. Today, we’ll talk about the claims, how the stock reacted to the news, and what we can expect to see from HLF ahead.

Trade smarter and make more money with Tradespoon!

HLF Could Be In Some Very Big Trouble!

Money laundering is a big deal, and according to recent allegations, Herbalife may be taking part in this criminal activity. In a recent post by 10/10 Research, claims were made that the company is laundering money through various clubs.

In fact, the allegations state that HLF had incredible success. As a result, it was able to amass undocumented trades at more than 40,000 clubs outside of the United States. The research firm alleges that more than 40,000 clubs between Mexico and Columbia. By setting up fake accounts with the main distributor, it was alleged that the “cash [had] a chain of individuals to work its way up and through.”

Because of the set up, it is alleged that 40-60% of cash used by fake distributors could be returned to them in U.S. dollars. If HLF recognizes revenue in local revenue while paying distributors in U.S. dollars, well, that my friends is the picture of money laundering.

How Herbalife Responded To The Claims

As we would imagine, HLF quickly released a response to the allegations. The company said that to allege that they are involved in money laundering is unthinkable. In their response, the company completely denied the claims and backed away from the situation entirely.

What We’re Seeing From The Stock

As investors, we know that the news moves the market, even if the news is a rumor. In this particular case, there’s no clear answer as to whether or not these rumors are true, but we do know that the market is moving. Yesterday, Herbalife saw massive declines as investors digested the claims. Today, HLF is currently (12:17) trading at $59.95 per share after a loss of $1.18 or 1.93%.

What We Can Expect To See Ahead

Moving forward, I have a relatively mixed opinion of what we can expect to see from HLF. If the allegations are true, the company is in big trouble. However, if there is no proof of this and the allegations blow over, the company has a good chance of seeing gains ahead.

CIT Group CIT Stock News

CIT Group Inc. (NYSE: CIT)

CIT Group was off to a normal day in the market with your general ups and downs. However, the CNA Finance team noticed that minutes ago, a decent spike in value started to happen. Today, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why it’s happening, and what we can expect to see from CIT ahead.

Trade smarter and make more money with Tradespoon!

What We’re Seeing From CIT

As mentioned above, CIT Group was off to a relatively normal start to the day today. It had its ups, it had its downs, but the trading remained relatively flat. However, minutes ago, we started to see a relatively strong spike in the value of the stock. Currently (2:25), CIT is trading at $36.43 per share after a gain of $0.53 per share or 1.46% thus far.

Why We’re Seeing The Gains

Of course, as soon as the spike started, the CNA Finance team went digging to see what was causing the movement. The gains on CIT seem to be the result of a report from Benzinga. In the report, investors learned that the company has hired Boston Consulting in order to help maximize shareholder value.

These types of stories tend to cause quite a bit of excitement as they could lead to acquisitions down the road. Not to mention, any time a company is thinking of its shareholders in a public way, we can expect to see gains. As a result, CIT is climbing in the market.

What We Can Expect To See Ahead

This is definitely going to be an interesting stock to follow. Tomorrow, CIT Group will be reporting earnings, and further movement will likely depend on how the report goes. However, all in all, it seems as though the company is up to something that will likely lead to further gains.
