bluebird bio data looks 'impressive,' says Leerink
Leerink analyst Michael Schmidt notes that bluebird bio (BLUE) announced first clinical data from its ongoing Phase I study of anti-BCMA CAR-T product candidate "bb2121" in relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, and says it looks 'impressive." While he cautions that the data is still "somewhat immature," the early results justify the high level of excitement around the potential of anti-BCMA CAR-T therapy in relapsed/ refractory myeloma, as several other companies including Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), Kite Pharma (KITE) and Novartis (NVS) have stated plans to also develop anti-BCMA-CART product candidates. Schmidt reiterates an Outperform rating on bluebird bio's shares.

Piper thinks blocking of Overtime Rule came too late
An Obama-appointed judge in Texas surprisingly blocked the Overtime Rule set to take effect on December 1, Piper Jaffray analysts in the Hardlines Retail & Specialty Products space tell investors in a research note. The analysts say that regardless of whether the injunction is upheld, their research suggests that the ruling comes too late for larger companies to pull back on the planned Overtime Rule change. Payroll and IT systems are likely set to adjust this coming Sunday, they point out. Piper's analysts expect the expense headwinds from the OT rule change for retailers/restaurants to remain in place. The retailers they believe that are most impacted from the rule are Dollar General (DG), Dollar Tree (DLTR), Regis (RGS) and Sally Beauty (SBH). The restaurants they believe are most impacted are Bojangles (BOJA), Starbucks (SBUX), Sonic (SONC), Noodles & Company (NDLS), Potbelly (PBPB), Del Taco (TACO) and Zoe's Kitchen (ZOES).

If Wal-Mart follows through with grocery price investments, it could hurt Kroger (KR), Smart & Final Stores (SFS) and Supervalu (SVU) and be an "indirect negative" for Sprouts Farmers Markets (SFM), Parikh tells investors. However, he also added that he remains confident in the ability of Kroger's management team to at least hold share.

The firm's analyst said this appears to be another head fake that distracts from core challenges facing Whole Foods ahead of 4Q16 results in early November and potential disappointing FY17 guidance. Pivotal said although Whole Foods multiple is not demanding, the extent of a FY17 earnings risk is not fully appreciated by the Street.

Citi says Whole Foods buyout would be uncharacteristic for Kroger

There are challenges that reduce the likelihood of a deal, and such a transaction could be uncharacteristic for Kroger, Concepcion tells investors in a research note. For one, the acquisition would be expensive, the analyst contends. And two, Kroger would have to lever up to 3.5 times net debt/EBITDA, he adds. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Kroger with a $39 price target. Whole Foods yesterday closed up 5% to $29.33 amid the takeout rumor.

Since this incident is the second of its sort involving a Booz Allen employee, after Edward Snowden, it could have an impact on the company's brand image, the analyst said. However, von Rumohr noted that Booz Allen did not face any litigation, lose any contracts, or have any direct impact on its revenues in the wake of the Snowden incident and that its shares bounced back relatively quickly after the fall associated with that event.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ocular Therapeutix (OCUL) upgraded to Overweight at Morgan Stanley by analyst Andrew Berens, who said the company's management provided a pathway forward for OTX-TP in glaucoma that appears to be a much lower bar than expected. 2. Carlyle Group (CG) upgraded to Overweight at Morgan Stanley, with analyst Michael Cyprys citing compelling risk/reward and near-term catalysts that include the $4B in portfolio exit pipeline, a $4B investment deployment pipeline, a $200M buyback program, cost controls, and focus on more scalable fund strategies. 3. Tyson Foods (TSN) upgraded to Overweight by Stephens analyst Farha Aslam, who said its valuation multiple should move up since its earnings growth and stability, balance sheet and product portfolio are mirroring that of consumer packaged food companies. 4. Tyler Technologies (TYL) upgraded to Buy at B. Riley, with analyst Kevin Liu citing the New World Systems (NWS) acquisition and expects results and guidance to compare favorably to his estimates. 5. Summit Materials (SUM) upgraded to Buy at Citi by analyst Scott Schrier, who cited attractive valuation and a "constructive outlook" for the heavy materials space.
