Buyout Bonanza Spurs A Jump By The Russell 2000 & All Indices On Monday

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Markets rose across the board today with the little guys on Russell 2000 jumping 2.65% while ending at 1,536.97. The Nasdaq added 1.87% to end at 11,056.65, the S&P 500 ended at 3,383.54 up 1.27% & the Dow 30 closed at 27,993.33 up 1.18%. 

All 11 sectors finished in the green as the real estate sector moved up 2.2% & the information technology sector moved up 2.1% to lead all.

The macroeconomic report schedule did not produce anything of significance, however, it was a “buyout bonanza kind of day for some notable and widely followed names. Gilead Sciences (GILD) closed at $66.34/share up 2.2% as it announced the cash acquisition of Immunomedics (IMMU) $83.65/share, up 98% for ~$21B at $88/share. NVIDIA (NVDA) closed at $514.89/share up 5.8% as it announced the acquisition of Arm Holdings from Softbank for $40B in a combination of cash and stock; & Verizon (VZ) closed at $60.32/share up .9%  as it announced the acquisition of Tracfone for $6.25B in both cash & stock. The cash and the equities markets flying and still are open for these companies.

Curiously, with the sea of green in the markets today,  the FAANGs all finished in negative territory except for Apple: Facebook (FB) closed at $266.15/share down .17%, Amazon (AMZN) closed at $3,102.97/share down .43%, Apple (AAPL) closed at $115.36/share up 3%, Netflix (NFLX) dropped 1.2% closing at $476.26/share & Alphabet (GOOG) closed at $1,519.28/share down .09%. 

Electric vehicle manufacturer, Tesla (TSLA), flew up 12.58% closing at $419.62/share.  Today, I met with the management team of Plug Power (PLUG) at the HCW Equities Conference. Plug Power is the leading provider of clean hydrogen and zero-emission fuel cell solutions that are both cost-effective and reliable.  PLUG closed up 4.53% at $12.24/share today. They recently closed a $300M financing at $10.25/share and would seem to be in an interesting position with the number of deals and adoption being realized in the sector.

AstraZeneca (AZN) closed at $54.03/share up .5% as it announced that it is restarting its COVID-19 vaccine trial in the United Kingdom. A couple of retailers of mention responded nicely to the brighter outlook as Tapestry (TPR) closed at $17.63 up 9.16% & Kohl’s (KSS) closed at $22.96/share up 7.64%. 

Gold closed at $1957(+17) while silver closed at $27.26/oz (+.42). North American silver and gold producer Hecla Mining Company (HL) closed at $5.76/share up 5.69% after recently establishing another new 52-week high of $6.79/share during intraday trading. HL’s 52-week low is $1.38. Tribe Public’s Webinar Presentation and Q&A Event will Phillips S. Baker, Jr., President, and CEO of Hecla Mining Company (NYSE: HL) that was scheduled for Wednesday, September 9th has been rescheduled for September 30th (8:30 am pacific/ 11:30 am eastern.) He will deliver a ~20-minute presentation titled “A Uniquely Scarce Investment.” You may join by registering at Tribe Public. Last week, Hecla announced that its Board of Directors is increasing the expected minimum quarterly dividend 50% to an annualized one and one-half cents per share and lowering the silver-linked dividend threshold price. If Hecla’s average realized silver price for a quarter is $25.00 per ounce, the new silver-linked quarterly dividend policy provides an annualized two cents per share, while at $30 and above, the realized silver-linked dividend per quarter is unchanged. Recently, Hecla reported 24% higher revenues on higher production and prices in Q2 2020. Cantor Fitzgerald Analyst Mike Kizak updated his coverage moving his Speculative Buy rating to a Buy rating and moving his target price to $7.25/share. North American silver producer First Majestic Silver (AG) closed at $12.46/share up 6.95% after recently establishing a new 52-week high of $14.57 recently. Last week, First Majestic announced that it has entered into an agreement with Cormark Securities Inc., as underwriter (the “Underwriter”) pursuant to which the Underwriter has agreed to purchase, on a bought deal basis, 5,000,000 common shares of First Majestic (the “Common Shares”) at a price of CDN$15.60 per Common Share for gross proceeds of CDN$78,000,000 (the “Offering”). The sole investor under the Offering will be Canadian billionaire businessman, Eric Sprott, through 2176423 Ontario Ltd., a corporation beneficially controlled by him. This investment will result in Mr. Sprott holding approximately 2.3% of First Majestic’s issued and outstanding common shares, post-closing.

Oil prices dropped .3% closing at $37.22/bbl. A few energy leaders closed as follows: Chevron (CVX) closed at $77.29/share down .51%, midstream player, Enterprise Products Partners (EPD), closed trading at $17.13/share up .41% and is currently sporting an attractive $1.78/share dividend or 10.43% while USA Corporation Partners, LP. (USAC), one of the nation’s largest independent providers of natural gas compression services, closed at $11.28/share up 4.25% while offering a $2.10/share (19.41%) dividend.

The 2-yr US treasury yield closed up 1 basis point closing at .14% while the 10-yr yield closed even .67%. The U.S. Dollar Index weakened by .3% to end at 93.06.

Scott Wolchko, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fate Therapeutics stated, “Early clinical data from our FT596 program are very encouraging, as we observed a partial response in a heavily-pretreated patient with refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma at the first dose level without any reported events of cytokine release syndrome, neurotoxicity or graft-versus-host disease. Additionally, the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity data across our off-the-shelf NK cell programs continue to suggest that multiple doses of iPSC-derived NK cells can be administered to a patient without matching. We continue to be pleased with our pace of innovation, where the recent clearances of our IND applications by the FDA for FT538, the first-ever CRISPR-edited iPSC-derived cell therapy, and for FT819, the first-ever iPSC-derived CAR T-cell therapy, continue to demonstrate our unique ability to rapidly bring multiplexed engineered, off-the-shelf NK cell and T-cell cancer immunotherapies to patients. In addition, we successfully launched our Janssen collaboration with strong momentum, bringing together Janssen’s proprietary tumor-targeting antigen binders and our industry-leading iPSC product platform to develop novel off-the-shelf CAR NK and CAR T-cell immunotherapies for hematologic malignancies and solid tumors.”

    • July 14th, FATE announced that the Company entered into an exclusive license agreement with Baylor College of Medicine covering alloimmune defense receptors, a first-in-class approach that renders off-the-shelf allogeneic cell products resistant to host immune rejection. Preclinical studies published in the journal Nature Biotechnology (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41587-020-0601-5) demonstrate that allogeneic cells engineered with a novel alloimmune defense receptor (ADR) are protected from both T- and NK-cell mediated rejection, and provide proof-of-concept that ADR-expressing allogeneic cell therapies can durably persist in immunocompetent recipients.

    • On June 11th, FATE announced that it had closed an underwritten public offering of 7,108,796 shares of its common stock, which included 927,324 shares that were issued pursuant to the full exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares, at a public offering price of $28.31 per share.

    • NeuBase is developing the next generation of gene silencing therapies with its flexible, highly specific synthetic antisense oligonucleotides. The proprietary NeuBase peptide-nucleic acid (PNA) antisense oligonucleotide (PATrOL™) platform allows for the rapid development of targeted drugs, increasing the treatment opportunities for the hundreds of millions of people affected by rare genetic diseases, including those that can only be treated through accessing of secondary RNA structures. Using PATrOL technology, NeuBase aims to first tackle rare, genetic neurological disorders. NeuBase is continuing its progress towards developing treatment candidates in Huntington’s Disease (HD) and Myotonic Dystrophy (DM1.)
    • RBC Capital Markets recently initiated coverage of NBSE today with an Outperform, Speculative Risk rating & a $16 price target. 

    • NBSE recently reported its financial results for the three and nine-month periods ended June 30, 2020. Dietrich A. Stephan, Ph.D., chief executive officer of NeuBase stated, “We are pleased with the continued execution of our development programs during 2020. This includes the announcement in late-March of compelling data that firmly validates our platform as a viable fully synthetic approach to genetic medicine. Notably, these data confirm that our therapies penetrate into the brain when administered systemically – overcoming one of the grand challenges of drug delivery. PATrOL-enabled compounds can also access tissues throughout the entire body, opening our platform up to unexplored indications that have not previously been accessible by genetic medicine technologies. These positive pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data-position our unique technology to output a vast pipeline of therapeutics to resolve innumerable human diseases. We anticipate presenting additional new data with respect to our ongoing progress in the fourth calendar quarter of this year. A key objective for our company shortly after the March data announcement was to strengthen our balance sheet in order to fully advance our strategies in HD and DM1, and build out our pipeline. This was accomplished in April with the closing of our oversubscribed capital raise of approximately $33.3 million in net proceeds that was led by fundamental healthcare investors and significantly increased our institutional shareholder base. We expect this to support our R&D and general corporate expenses into the second calendar quarter of 2022.”

  • Shares of Aduro (ADRO) closed at $2.41/share.
    • On Aug. 18th, Chinook Therapeutics, Inc., a privately-held clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of precision medicines for kidney diseases,  announced a $106 million private placement financing, with participation from new widely respected healthcare investors including EcoR1 Capital, OrbiMed, funds managed by Rock Springs Capital, Avidity Partners, Surveyor Capital (a Citadel company), Ally Bridge Group, Monashee Investment Management LLC, Northleaf Capital Partners, Janus Henderson Investors, Sphera Biotech, and other top-tier healthcare investors. As part of the financing, Chinook’s existing investors, Versant Ventures, Apple Tree Partners and Samsara BioCapital, will purchase $25 million in Chinook common stock on the same terms as the new investors in lieu of their prior commitment to purchase convertible notes. The private placement closing is expected to occur immediately prior to the closing of the previously announced proposed merger between Chinook and Aduro Biotech, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADRO). Following the proposed merger closing, which is expected to occur in the second half of 2020, Aduro will be renamed Chinook Therapeutics, Inc., and is expected to trade on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the ticker symbol “KDNY”. Closing of the private placement is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of all closing conditions for the proposed merger. Following the private placement financing, and upon closing of the merger, Chinook is expected to have at least $275 million in operating capital.
    • On August 3rd, provided a business update and reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020. Stephen T. Isaacs, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Aduro stated, “The second quarter of 2020 was highlighted by the announcement of our planned merger with Chinook Therapeutics as well as significant progress in our BION-1301 program for IgA nephropathy (IgAN). We recently dosed the first IgAN patient with BION-1301 in Part 3 of our ongoing Phase 1 study and presented positive data from Parts 1 and 2 of this study in healthy volunteers at the 57th ERA-EDTA Virtual Congress. The data indicated BION-1301 was well-tolerated, had a half-life of approximately 33 days, achieved over 90% target engagement with a single 450 mg dose of BION-1301, and demonstrated dose-dependent and durable reductions in IgA and IgM levels, and to a lesser extent, IgG levels. We continue to enroll patients in our Phase 2 study of ADU-S100 in combination with pembrolizumab in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck and make progress on our cGAS-STING antagonist research collaboration with Lilly. We ended the second quarter of 2020 with a cash position of $186.1 million, which we believe will enable us to continue our ongoing STING and APRIL programs in the near-term and also meet our net cash requirements at the close of the merger with Chinook.” 
  • Shares of INVO Bioscience (INVO) closed at $4/share up 1.27%.
    • Industry forecasts suggest that only 1% to 2% of the estimated 150 million infertile couples worldwide are currently being treated
    • INVO’s mission is to increase access to care and expand infertility treatment across the globe with a goal of improving patient affordability and industry capacity. 
    • Recently, INVO announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Steve Shum, Chief Executive Officer of INVO Bioscience stated, “Despite the impact that COVID-19 has had in delaying fertility treatment for many around the world, we continue to make strong progress on our key goals to create commercialization agreements for our INVOcell solution. As we have been advancing our commercialization efforts outside the United States, industry leaders, as well as our internal team, have begun to recognize the expanded opportunity that exists through the creation of these joint ventures for developing dedicated, INVO-only centers in the U.S. and select markets around the world. The INVO center model also allows INVO Bioscience to participate in a greater share of the economics. Over the past year, we have had a number of conversations that started as standard distribution agreements that have evolved into potential joint venture agreements. We believe such partnerships, such as the one signed in India, will ultimately be mutually beneficial to achieving our goal to increase access to care and lower the cost of fertility treatment across the globe. Similar to the first quarter of 2020, the second quarter 2020 results were impacted by the COVID-19 virus outbreak which resulted in reduced product sales to Ferring. A majority of clinics curtailed their fertility services in connection with the lockdowns that occurred. Many of the clinics have since resumed operations, albeit at a measured pace. As a result, and along with Ferring’s required annual minimums, we expect to experience stronger sales in the second half of 2020. We also believe that new guidelines that requiring limiting interactions and social distancing at most clinics could favor accelerated adoption of our technology, which allows for a more streamlined cycle approach with fewer patient visits and reduced lab requirements and resources.”

    • I am expecting to see the company push forward with new market supportive initiatives and awareness of their INVOcell product in the back half of 2020 that may result in further adoption in the US clinics and establishing new joint ventures, partners, and distributors throughout the world.

    • Tiny Float – INVO has ~7.89 million shares outstanding and with ~+15% insider ownership the share float is tight and recently confirmed that the company raised ~$3.5M.

  • North American silver and gold producer Hecla Mining Company (HL) ended trading at $5.76 up 5.69%. 
    • Hecla recently announced that its Board of Directors is increasing the expected minimum quarterly dividend 50% to an annualized one and one-half cents per share and lowering the silver-linked dividend threshold price. If Hecla’s average realized silver price for a quarter is $25.00 per ounce, the new silver-linked quarterly dividend policy provides an annualized two cents per share, while at $30 and above, the realized silver-linked dividend per quarter is unchanged. Recently, Hecla reported 24% higher revenues on higher production and prices in Q2 2020.

Atossa Therapeutics (ATOS), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company seeking to discover and develop innovative medicines in areas of significant unmet medical need with a current focus on breast cancer and COVID-19, recently announced the successful results from in vitro testing of AT-H201, Atossa’s proprietary COVID-19 drug candidate. The preliminary study results show that AT-H201 inhibits SARS-CoV-2 infectivity of VERO cells in a laboratory culture, which are the standard cell types being used to study the infectivity of the coronavirus. SARS-CoV-2, sometimes called the coronavirus, is the COVID-19 infectious agent. This is the first submicromolar inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2 identified to date in published literature, meaning that a relatively small amount of the drug is necessary to result in an anti-viral effect. The testing was conducted on behalf of Atossa by a leading academic research institute. Atossa plans to publish a manuscript of these test results. Successful in vitro tests do not guarantee similar results from in vivo studies, including in human clinical trials. Additional safety and efficacy studies must be successfully completed and regulatory approvals must be obtained before AT-H201 may be commercialized. AT-H201 is reportedly designed to act as a “chemical vaccine” by binding to the surface of the coronavirus and inhibiting the ability of the virus to enter a cell (“viral infectivity”). Significant findings from the testing include: AT-H201 components inhibited SARS-CoV-2 from infecting VERO cells in a laboratory culture & this is the first submicromolar inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2 identified to date in published literature, meaning that a relatively small amount of the drug is necessary to result in an anti-viral effect. Testing was also performed on Gilead Sciences’ (GILD) remdesivir, an anti-viral medication being studied by others for use in COVID-19 patients, and the generic anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, which is also being studied by others in COVID-19 patients. In these laboratory tests, the components of AT-H201 were found to be at least four-times more potent than remdesivir and at least twenty-times more potent than hydroxychloroquine. Potency was measured by microscopic examination of the cytopathic effect caused by SARS-CoV-2 in VERO cells. Learn More. 

INVO Bioscience (INVO) has made a number of moves to build out its organization while focusing its efforts to increase access to its INVOcell procedure globally. INVO Bioscience’s INVOcell® is a patented medical device used in infertility treatment and is considered an Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). ART includes all fertility treatments in which both eggs and embryos are handled outside of the body.  Steve Shum, Chief Executive Officer of INVO Bioscience, stated, “As we continue to improve our commercialization activities and expand the awareness of our FDA-cleared INVOcell device both domestically and abroad, we also set the objective to improve the capitalization structure of the company in order to enhance our public company visibility and attract a larger audience of investors. Today’s announcement is an important step in that process.”  Currently, it is estimated that only 1% to 2% of the estimated 150 million infertile couples worldwide are being treated, but help is on the wayRecently, The Morning Blend aired an interview on WTMJ-4 Milwaukee where Dr. Ellen Hayes, a Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist from Vios Fertility Institute, discussed information regarding their new research in health, pregnancy, and COVID19. Dr. Hayes also shares their research and a new offering of INVO Bioscience’s  (INVO) FDA cleared infertility treatment called INVOcell The INVOcell technology, which continues to gain worldwide recognition and adoption, provides an in-vivo incubation solution that can help increase access and capacity to the large underserved global fertility market.
