Morgan Stanley Sees Possible Upside Source for Endo International PLC

Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today confirmed that a federal district court has granted its request to enforce a settlement agreement between Endo Pharmaceuticals and Mylan settling patent litigation in connection with Mylan’s filing of an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Frovatriptan Succinate Tablets, 2.5 mg. This product is the generic version of FROVA^®, which is used to treat acute migraine headaches in adults.

As a result of the decision, the Court has vacated its January 28, 2014, decision in favor of Endo regarding the parties’ patent litigation over this product, which could have prevented Mylan from launching its generic version of FROVA until after the expiration of U.S. Patent 5,464,864 patent on November 7, 2015. By enforcing the settlement, Mylan can launch its product pursuant to the terms of the settlement, contingent upon final FDA approval.

For the 12 months ending Dec. 31, 2013, Frovatriptan had U.S. sales of approximately $66.41 million, according to IMS Health.

Currently, Mylan has 187 ANDAs pending FDA approval representing $94.9 billion in annual brand sales, according to IMS Health. Forty-two of these pending ANDAs are potential first-to-file opportunities, representing $25.4 billion in annual brand sales, for the 12 months ending Dec. 31, 2013, according to IMS Health.

SodaStream Pops 11% on Minority Stake Sale Buzz (Fox Business)

Shares of SodaStream International (NASDAQ: SODA) are higher by 9.15 percent to $41.20 following a rumor from Calcalist about the company possibly selling a stake of itself.

Calcalist reported the company is in talks to sell a 10-16% stake for $52 a share to Pepsi, Dr. Pepper’s Snapple, or Starbucks.

The deal would include options allowing the potential suitor to increase the stake for control of SodaStream.

SodaStream management declined to comment on the rumor.

According to analyst Jim Chartier of Monness Crespi Hardt & Co, SodaStream shareholders believe SodaStream “is either going to sell itself or end up in a partnership with Pepsi.” If Chartier is right, failing to reach a deal with a suitor would be a downside risk to investors.

Stifel Nicolaus analyst Jim Duffy is not optimistic a deal will be reached. According to Duffy, the economics of SodaStream would not offer sufficient margin opportunity for a major beverage company to outweigh the risk of potential “cannibalization.”

Duffy believes syrup profit streams would be “insignificant” for buyers like Pepsi, Dr. Pepper or Starbucks.

UPDATE: H&R Block Reaches Definitive Agreement to Divest Its Bank; Expected to Dilute Earnings by $0.07-0.09

Courtesy of Benzinga.

H&R Block, Inc. (NYSE: HRB), the world’s largest consumer tax services provider, today announced that H&R Block Bank has entered into a definitive purchase and assumption agreement with BofI Federal Bank (“BofI”) to sell certain assets and transfer certain liabilities to BofI. The agreement is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. In addition, the parties have agreed to terms of a program management agreement under which BofI will act as the bank for H&R Block-branded financial services products: Emerald Prepaid MasterCard®, Refund Transfers and Emerald Advance® lines of credit through H&R Block’s retail and digital channels. The program management agreement will be entered into upon closing of the definitive purchase and assumption agreement.

“We’re very pleased to reach a definitive agreement with BofI that enables us to exit our bank while continuing to offer best-in-class financial services products to our clients,” said Bill Cobb, H&R Block’s president and chief executive officer. “This is an important step in ceasing to be regulated as a savings and loan holding company, which we believe is in the best strategic interests of our company and our shareholders.”

Both H&R Block Bank and BofI are in the process of applying for required regulatory approvals with their respective regulators. Following the fulfillment of all closing conditions, including receipt of required regulatory approvals, H&R Block Bank will complete the transaction, merge with and into its parent, Block Financial LLC, and surrender its bank charter. Subject to meeting the aforementioned conditions, including the receipt of required regulatory approvals, H&R Block continues to expect that the closing will occur in time for next tax season.

H&R Block expects the net, ongoing annual financial impact of the program management agreement to be dilutive by approximately $0.07 to $0.09 per share beginning in fiscal 2015, based on current fully diluted shares outstanding. Results will vary based upon the volume of financial services products sold and the actual closing date.

Contingent upon the timing of regulatory approval, H&R Block also expects to incur one-time charges for transaction and related costs of approximately $0.01 per share in fiscal year 2014 and approximately $0.02 to $0.03 per share in fiscal year 2015, based on current fully diluted shares outstanding and…

Wild Ride For Chipotle

Shares in Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (Ticker: CMG) opened higher on Thursday morning, rising more than 6.0% to $589.00, after the restaurant operator reported better than expected first-quarter sales ahead of the opening bell. But, the stock began to falter just before lunchtime on concerns the burrito-maker will increase menu prices for the first time in three years. The price of Chipotle’s shares have since fallen into negative territory and currently trade down 3.5% on the session at $532.89 as of 1:50 p.m. ET.

What the Market Wants: Positive News and Stocks at Bargain Prices

Courtesy of David Brown, Sabrient Systems and Gradient Analytics

Last week’s market performance was nasty again, especially for the Small-cap Growth style/cap, down 4%.  Large-caps faired the best, losing only 2.7%.  That’s ugly and today’s market seemed likely to be uglier today with escalating tensions over the weekend in Ukraine. 

But once again, positive economic trumped the beating of the war drums. Retail Sales jumped up 1.1% over a projected 0.8% and last month’s tepid 0.3%, which was revised up to 0.7%.  While autos led, sales were up solidly overall.  Business inventories were about as expected with a positive tone.  Citigroup (C) handily beat estimates to add to the morning’s surprises.  As a result, the market was positive through most of the day, led by the DJI, up 0.91%, and the S&P 500, up 0.82%.  NASDAQ had a less...
