12.5K Mondelez Sep - Oct 42 put spreads sold at 60

12.5K Mondelez Sep - Oct 42 put spreads sold at 60. The stock off 2c to $40.96 and the activity likely rolls short Sep 42 puts opened last month, including more than 8K at 40c on 8/8 with the stock at $43.80. Rolling the position to October, but at the same ITM 42 strike, avoids the probability of assignment later this week and expresses confidence that shares can rebound in the month ahead.

Hershey buy of Nestle assets could be type of 'poison pill,' says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Robert Moskow analyzed several scenarios after Nestle's (NSRGY) recent announcement of a strategic review of its U.S. confectionery business. Buying Nestle candy would double Mondelez's (MDLZ) U.S. market share to 10%, but Moskow wonders if such a deal could compromise Mondelez' ability to eventually buy Hershey (HSY) at a later date. As for the latter, Hershey would generate "massive" synergies of 9% of sales and the deal could work as a type of "poison pill" to deter a bid from Mondelez or Kraft Heinz (KHC), said Moskow. However, he doesn't think Hershey would want to buy an asset that would dilute its topline growth rate at this point. He added that he sees "little to no chance" of Lindt, the number three in U.S. candy, being interested in Nestle's assets.

Mondelez upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery upgraded Mondelez to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $49 from $48.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Mondelez (MDLZ) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Michael Lavery saying favorable sugar and cocoa costs provide a boost to margins. 2. Big Lots (BIG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell saying the current valuation is "compelling" given the disconnect between the company's "impressive" operating profit growth and multiple. 3. Werner (WERN) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ken Hoexter saying truckload utilization and rates are turning positive. 4. Atlassian (TEAM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Sanjit Singh saying has increased confidence in expansion trends of the user base and said there are clear signs of pricing power, supporting 30% topline growth and 40% free cash flow CAGR over the next 3 years. 5. DSW (DSW) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Paul Trussell saying the shares offer an "intriguing non-apparel value play."
