    Matson's stock suffering biggest-ever selloff after new competition concerns prompt downgrades

    Shares of shipping company Matson Inc. were suffering the biggest selloff since they started trading in January 1972, amid concerns over a new competitor to its West Coast-to-Hawaii shipping business. The stock's price drop of $7.09, or 24%, was shaving about 43 points off the Dow Jones Transportation Average , which was up 3 points in midday trade. The selloff topped the previous record of the $6.76, or 16.2%, drop on Nov. 8, 2016, according to FactSet data. TOTE Inc. announced Thursday plans to establish a new domestic shipping service to Hawaii, with plans to use new environmentally advanced containerships in 2020. Stephens Inc. analyst Jack Atkins downgraded Matson to equal weight from overweight and slashed his stock price target to $23 from $36, citing competition concerns in Matson's core shipping lane. "If it materializes, we think this could be a material headwind to profitability and, as such, we would anticipate significant multiple contraction for MATX in the interim and an extended period of volatility and uncertainty for the stock," Atkins wrote in a note to clients. Wells Fargo's Michael Webber downgraded Matson to underperform from market perform and cut his target to $22 from $35. The stock has tumbled 37% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 8.8%.

    Dow books 4th straight gain, but Trump, Fed make for bumpy stock-market ride

    U.S. stocks ended a volatile session slightly higher on Wednesday, following what might have seemed to some like a torrent of political drama, economic reports and minutes from the Federal Reserve that showed that the central bank is contending with sluggish inflation. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished up 0.1% at 22,025, marking its fourth straight advance, the S&P 500 index closed 0.1% higher at 2,468, and the Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 0.2% to end at 6,345. Markets traded unsteadily Wednesday afternoon, reflecting uncertainty about the strategic path for the central bank and political tensions facing President Donald Trump that could upend his pro-growth agenda. President Trump announced the dissolution of a pair of business advisory panels following a wave of high-profile departures of corporate leaders after widespread criticism over the president's reaction and late-Tuesday remarks to violence in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. Meanwhile, the Fed adopted a dovish posture, indicating that some members are concerned about sluggish inflation. In economic news, housing starts fell 5.6% in July weaker than expected. In corporate news, shares of retailing giant Target Corp. rose after it reported an increase in same-store saales and lifted its guidance for the full-year 2017. The Fed's minutes had a pronounced effect on the yields of 10-year Treasurys, driving prices higher and yields down by the most in 3 weeks, while the ICE U.S. Dollar Index, which measures the buck against a basket of six rivals, declined precipitously due to a combination of shaky economic reports and news about turmoil in Washington.

    GoPro shares climb after upgrade to neutral at Goldman Sachs

    Shares of GoPro Inc. were soaring 4% in premarket trade Tuesday after the stock was upgraded to neutral from sell at Goldman Sachs as the analysts see GoPro's upcoming launch of a new Hero camera as a catalyst. GoPro appears to be on track to launch a HERO6 camera in the second half of the year, potentially October, and product launches have led to outperformance of the stock related to the S&P 500 , the analysts said. GoPro also plans to launch a 360-degree Fusion camera in 2018, leading to further upside. However, the company does still have challenges, as camera sell-through was down 9% year-over-year in the previous quarter. And sell through has declined in the past five of six quarters on a year-over-year basis. Still, the analysts expect GoPro to return to cash generation in the second half of 2017, helped by GoPro raising convertible debt, restructuring its costs and reducing inventory. They raised their price target to $10 from $6.75. Shares of GoPro have gained 13% in the past three months, while the S&P 500 has gained 3%.

    Dow closes up 135 points as North Korea tensions ease

    U.S. stock benchmarks rallied Monday, as a recent aversion to assets considered risky on the back of fears about tensions between the U.S. and North Korea receded somewhat. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up by 0.6% to end at 21,993, led by about jumps in shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Apple Inc. . The S&P 500 index advanced 1% at 2,466, buoyed by a 1.4% surge in financials and 1.6% surge in the technology sector [s:XLK], while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index rose 1.3% at 6,340--its best daily raise since June 28. The rebound in equities follows one of the worst weeks in U.S. stock benchmarks in months, and also comes after a weekend of violence in Charlottesville, Va., which was the scene of angry clashes centered on a white-supremacist rally that left one person dead.

    Tesla price target lifted to $411 at Baird who says don't short ahead of Model 3

    Tesla Inc.'s price target was lifted to $411 per share from $368 on Monday by Baird, whose analysts advised against shorting shares of the company ahead of the Model 3 production ramp. Reiterating an outperform rating on the electric-car maker, senior research analyst Ben Kallo had this to say: "In our our opinion, TSLA is not a good short headed into the Model 3 ramp as we continue to believe upcoming catalysts will drive shares higher, and TSLA remains a top pick for 2017." He said they expect "strong demand" for Tesla's mass-market Model 3, whose production ramp up is expected this fall, and that stock performance following its introduction could mirror that of which was seen for the Model S. "Importantly, a positive reception to the Model 3 from early customers could significantly increase the value of the Tesla Brand and further accelerate demand," said Kallo.

    Amazon gets a new high stock price target implying a 29% gain

    Shares of Amazon.com Inc. eased 0.2% in morning trade Tuesday, as investors shrugged off a new high stock price target on Wall Street. Analyst Rob Sanderson at MKM Partners boosted his target to $1,275, which is now the highest of the 43 analysts surveyed by FactSet, above four targets now tied for second at $1,250. Sanderson's target is 29% above current levels. Although Sanderson doesn't expect Amazon to generate meaningful profits anytime soon, he said the stock has "never been valued on near-term profit" and likely won't be until investors see a limit on growth opportunities. "Until then, we think revenue growth and share gain will matter more than profitability," Sanderson wrote in a note to clients. "We think investors have become very comfortable with the company's continued investments because of the track record of management, consistency of share gain and massive untapped opportunity in retail and cloud computing services." The stock, which has lost 6.0% since the July 26 record close of $1,052.80, has still run up 32% year to date, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 index has climbed 22% and the S&P 500 has gained 11%.

The stock had reported last Thursday second-quarter that rose more than expected. The stock has rocketed about five fold since Roberts went to sell in August 2015, or two months after it completed the spinoff from DuPont Co. , while the S&P 500 has climbed 22.5%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
