In een open brief zegt Gilead Sciences Chairman & CEO Dan O'Day dat de prijs voor het antiviral remdesivir, wat tot nu toe het enige medicijn is dat werd goedgekeurd door de FDA als nood middel voor gebruik tegen COVID-19, per injectie 390 dollar zal kosten ofwel 2340 dollar voor een kuur van 5 dagen ... Best een pittige prijs maar analisten dachten dat het nog duurder zou worden ...
Het bedrijf voert de productie verder op en verwacht dat zijn investering in de ontwikkeling en productie van remdesivir tegen het einde van het jaar meer dan 1 miljard dollar zal bedragen.In de derde wereld heeft Gilead deals met generieke fabrikanten om behandeling tegen aanzienlijk lagere kosten mogelijk te maken.

BEFORE THE BELL
Wall Street futures were little changed as the relentless spread of the coronavirus curbed optimism on the global economy. European shares struggled for direction and Japan’s Nikkei sank. Gold prices rose on safe-haven bets, while the dollar fell against rival currencies. Oil prices rose. U.S. pending home sales data is due later in the day.
STOCKS TO WATCH
Deals Of The Day
• BP Plc (BP). The company has agreed to sell its global petrochemicals business to billionaire Jim Ratcliffe's Ineos for $5 billion, pulling out of a sector widely seen as a key driver of oil demand growth in the coming decades. The surprise move means BP has hit its $15 billion asset sales target a year ahead of schedule as CEO Bernard Looney prepares the company for a shift to low-carbon energy. Looney acknowledged that the sale of the business, which employs 1,700 people and produced 9.7 million tonnes of petrochemicals last year, "will come as a surprise".
In Other News
• Amazon.com Inc (AMZN). The Indian unit of the company has eliminated all single-use plastic in its packaging across fulfillment centers in the country, in line with its target to weed out the packaging material by June, the e-commerce giant said. Separately, Workers at six Amazon sites in Germany will go on strike in protest over safety after some staff at logistics centres tested positive for coronavirus, labour union Verdi said.
• American Airlines Group Inc (AAL). The company expects to have between 10% and 20% more workers than needed in July 2021, Chief Executive Doug Parker told employees at a town hall this week, and said that avoiding furloughs will be difficult. "It's going to be even harder than I thought," Parker said at an employee town hall on Wednesday, adding that "revenue is not coming back as fast as we'd like." "It really makes zero sense to go furlough a pilot in October if you're going to need that pilot again in July," Parker said, noting the costly training needed to bring a pilot back from a furlough.
• Andersons Inc (ANDE). CME Group, parent of the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), has ordered Andersons, an Ohio-based grain business, to pay a $2 million fine for violating futures trading rules in late 2017, the exchange said in a statement on Friday. The Andersons confirmed the settlement in a statement to Reuters and said it cooperated with the CME's investigation. "We do not believe we engaged in any wrongdoing," it said in the statement.
• Boeing Co (BA). Pilots and test crew members from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing are slated to begin a three-day certification test campaign for the 737 MAX, people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The FAA confirmed to U.S. lawmakers on Sunday that an agency board had completed a review of Boeing's safety system assessment for the 737 MAX "clearing the way for flight certification testing to begin. Flights with FAA test pilots could begin as early as Monday, evaluating Boeing’s proposed changes to the automated flight control system on the 737 MAX." After a preflight briefing over several hours, the crew will board a 737 MAX 7 outfitted with test equipment at Boeing Field near Seattle, one of the people said.
• Chesapeake Energy Corp (CHK). The company filed for Chapter 11 on Sunday, becoming the largest U.S. oil and gas producer to seek bankruptcy protection in recent years as it bowed to heavy debts and the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on energy markets. The filing marks an end of an era for the Oklahoma City-based shale pioneer, and comes after months of negotiations with creditors. "Despite having removed over $20 billion of leverage and financial commitments, we believe this restructuring is necessary for the long-term success and value creation of the business," Lawler said in a statement announcing the filing.
• Coty Inc (COTY). The company has agreed to buy a 20% stake in reality TV star Kim Kardashian West's makeup brand KKW for $200 mln, the Financial Times reported, citing people familiar with the matter. The deal values West's cosmetics company at $1 billion, slightly lower than the $1.2 billion valuation Coty put on West's half sister Kylie Jenner's business, the report said.
• Delta Air Lines (DAL). The company said late on Friday it will soon send warning notices to about 2,500 pilots regarding possible furloughs at the airline, as the industry takes a huge blow after the coronavirus pandemic slashed air travel demand. "In an effort to best prepare our pilots should furloughs be needed, Delta will send required notices to approximately 2,500 pilots," a Delta spokesperson said, adding that the so-called 'WARN' notices will be sent next week. Delta also reached a tentative agreement with the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) labor union on a pilot-specific voluntary early retirement option.
• KKR & Co Inc (KKR) & Apollo Global Management Inc (APO). The two companies are among potential buyers which have conducted due diligence on National Australia Bank's wealth management unit, three sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. The sale of the unit, called MLC, could fetch more than $688 million, said two of the sources, who declined to be identified as the negotiations are private. Suitors are expected to submit bids for MLC by Tuesday, one of the sources said. A second source said the timeline for the sale was fluid.
• Pfizer Inc (PFE). The company filed a lawsuit on Friday seeking to require the federal government to let it help Medicare beneficiaries afford two drugs to treat a rare and sometimes fatal heart condition, and which cost $225,000 a year. The drugmaker said the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General is blocking it from offering financial aid to patients unable to afford copayments for its Vyndaqel and Vyndamax drugs, because it views such aid as an illegal kickback.
• Starbucks Corp (SBUX). The company will pause advertising on all social media platforms as it explores the best ways to help stop the spread of hate speech, the company said in a statement on Sunday. The company will "have discussions internally and with media partners and civil rights organizations to stop the spread of hate speech," the statement said. A CNBC report on Sunday added that this social media pause by Starbucks will not include YouTube.
• Under Armour (UAA). The athletic apparel maker said on Saturday it will discontinue its partnership with UCLA - a 15-year, $280 million accord announced in 2016 that was billed as the largest apparel deal in the history of American collegiate sports. The University of California, Los Angeles promised to fight the move. The company said that it made the decision to terminate the agreement with UCLA because "we have been paying for marketing benefits that we have not received for an extended time period." The agreement with UCLA allowed the company to terminate the deal in such an event and it is exercising its right, Under Armour added.
• Walmart Inc (WMT). A shooting at a Walmart distribution center in Red Bluff, California, killed at least two people and injured four others late on Saturday, officials said. Tehama County's assistant sheriff said the attacker circled the center's parking lot four times before crashing his vehicle into the building and opening fire with a semi-automatic rifle. The shooter killed an employee before police officers shot and killed the attacker.
• Walt Disney Co (DIS). Workers at California's Disneyland Resort protested from their cars on Saturday, arguing that the company has not agreed to adequate protections for employees when the destination reopens to the public amid a pandemic. The company had planned to welcome guests back to Disneyland and neighboring California Adventure starting July 17 but delayed the restart date indefinitely. On Saturday, about 200 cars formed a caravan outside the resort in the protest staged by the Coalition of Resort Labor Unions, a group of 11 unions that represent 17,000 Disneyland workers. The unions have called on the company to commit to providing onsite testing for COVID-19.
A cash cliff spells trouble for U.S. unemployed, and everyone else
Judith Ramirez is bracing for July. That's when the hotel housekeeper and her electrician husband - who have both been out of work for three months - expect their combined unemployment benefits to drop by more than half, and their deferred $1,500 monthly mortgage payment on their Honolulu home to come due. It's a cash cliff millions of Americans face this summer as the emergency benefits -- which lifted U.S. consumer incomes by a record 10.8% in April -- expire.
• BCB Bancorp Inc (BCBP). Piper Sandler cuts target price to $9.50 from $11, noting the risk of a downturn in economic performance or real estate markets in the company’s core operating footprint.
• Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (BMY). Cowen and Company cuts target price to $66 from $72, reflecting lower 2022-25 earnings per share estimates.
• Zogenix Inc (ZGNX). Mizuho cuts target price to $55 from $64, reflecting the lower-than-expected average list price of Fintepla.
• Zoominfo Technologies Inc (ZI). RBC initiates coverage with sector perform and target price of $50, believing the company offers the leading go-to-market intelligence database, as well as valuable surrounding data.

We zijn er weer aan begonnen, een nieuwe week met nieuwe kansen zou ik zeggen maar welke kant zal de markt gaan kiezen deze week? Eind vorige week dan toch opnieuw lager, vooral Wall Street kreeg er van langs vrijdag met nu ook een stevige terugval tot diep onder de 10.000 punten wat betreft de Nasdaq, vanmorgen zien we via de Nasdaq future de 9800 al op de borden komen. Vorige week dinsdag stond de 10.220 nog even op de borden, de vraag is nu of er weer een Buy The Dip moment komt zoals altijd de afgelopen weken? Je zou denken dat het een keer voorbij is maar in deze markt weet je nooit, dat hebben we vaak genoeg onverwacht zien gebeuren. Er spelen nog genoeg zaken op de achtergrond die dat niet toelaten maar aan de andere kant zit je nu gewoon met een meute die alles opkoopt door de hoop dat er niks kan gebeuren met de FED die telkens waar nodig hulp brengt.
Waar ik vooral naar kijk zijn de waarderingen die te hoog liggen met de huidige economische vooruitzichten en de kans dat er zich een depressie zal voordoen als de situatie in de VS niet beter wordt. We weten dat veel staten dicht blijven en dat er al staten zijn die weer open gingen weer de lock-down in moeten. En dan is er nog een hele grote kans dat Trump het niet zal halen, het begint erop te lijken dat hij het voor gezien houdt en er weinig aan doet om terug te vechten.
De peilingen geven in ieder geval aan dat Trump nu rond de 40% uitkomt, Biden staat al ruim boven de 50%, een voorsprong van gemiddeld 10-12% voor Biden is behoorlijk veel en het is algemeen bekend dat wanneer een uitdager boven de 50% uitkomt het moeilijk wordt om te verliezen zeggen opiniepeilers in de VS. Maar we leven in het jaar 2020 waar werkelijk alles mogelijk is dus laten we nog niet te ver op de zaken vooruitlopen.
Wall Street merkt dat ook, wat zal er gebeuren zonder Trump die de markten constant de hoogte in weet te praten? Trump is een Wall Street man, Biden veel minder is algemeen bekend. Maar het volk spreekt en dat is Main Street en die lijken de touwtjes dus in handen te krijgen. Een reden om er vanuit te gaan dat Wall Street hierdoor in verwarring komt en dat we druk op de koersen zien momenteel, het is niet alleen afgelopen vrijdag, het was ook al zo woensdag en de week ervoor bleef ook alles volatiel. Nogmaals, het is en blijft een momentopname maar er is behoorlijk wat werk aan de winkel voor Trump om te winnen in november. Wat hij nu doet is Biden verwijten, hem uitmaken voor leugenaar (hmmm) en dus golven in Florida ...
De indices staan dus lager vanmorgen via de futures, ook Azië zien we vanmorgen lager met verliezen tussen de 1 en 2%, de AEX lijkt zo'n 4 tot 5 punten lager te openen terwijl de DAX rond de 80 tot 100 punten lager wil tot onder de 12.000 punten. Wat betreft de AEX letten we op de 545-548 punten, de Dow moet boven de 25.000 punten zien te blijven terwijl de Nasdaq de grip op de 10.000 punten niet mag opgeven. De indicaties geven aan dat we op die kritische punten staan nu. We gaan het zien in de loop van de dag, waar ik kansen zie zal ik wat ondernemen voor de leden.
Meedoen met de signalen, de suggesties die ik verstuur kan nu tot 1 september voor €39 ... We zitten nu zonder posities, morgen of begin volgende week neem ik wel weer wat op waar het kan ... Schrijf u in via de link https://www.usmarkets.nl/tradershop
