Heavy volume in Procter and Gamble options as arbs unwind massive positions

Heavy volume in Procter and Gamble options as arbs unwind massive positions. Arbitrageurs playing the COTY spinoff traded more than 10M P&G contracts last month ahead of the tender for shares, as rev/con open interest approached 3.5M contracts, representing 350M shares that could be tendered under the terms of the deal. With the exchange completed, traders are now unwinding the four largest blocks of open interest in the entire market, nearly 1.7M Oct 7th 120 rev/cons and 900K Oct 14th 120 rev/cons. Similarly, COTY has nearly 270K Oct 38s synthetics open.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Procter & Gamble (PG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley with analyst Linda Bolton Weiser saying she left a meeting with new Chief Executive Officer David Taylor with greater confidence in the company's improved organic sales growth. 2. Valeant (VRX) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Mizuho. 3. AAC Holdings (AAC) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst John Ransom ting favorable valuation, still high short interest, and good visibility on 2017 EBITDA, which is $8M above Street estimates. 4. American Eagle (AEO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Tiffany Kanaga saying denim strength should drive upside to estimates in the second quarter while easier compares should keep the momentum going in the second half of 2016. 5.

Jefferies cuts Edgewell Personal Care target citing Harry's rollout at Target
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy lowered his price target on Edgewell Personal Care (EPC) to $75 from $77 after Harry's shave club offerings launched nationwide at Target (TGT), saying his store checks revealed strong in-store execution for the roll-out. Grundy thinks soon-to-be acquired Dollar Shave Club will also to push into retail and expects other retailers, perhaps including Walmart (WMT), to follow Target's lead and offer shelf space to the "trendy" shave club brands. While saying this is also a risk to Procter & Gamble (PG), Grundy keeps his Buy rating and $98 price target on P&G shares, saying increased levels of investment in U.S. shaving are already factored in the company's guidance.
