Jefferies analyst Philippe Houchois downgraded Tesla to Hold from Buy with a price target of $800, up from $600. The analyst notes that he remains convinced by Tesla's "equity opportunity", but also believes that its valuation needs to be grounded on its potential market size and profitability. Houchois adds that his neutral stance is warranted pending better visibility of the upcoming battery business model, even though he continues to see Tesla as "uniquely engaged in a positive sum-game" within the electric vehicle transition.

The company states:…

The company states: "BlueLinx responded further to the recent misleading public statements by an investment firm that goes by the name of Bluefin Acquisitions, LLC. regarding its purported tender offer. In two recent press releases, Bluefin Acquisitions claimed that it was making, and then confirming, a tender offer to acquire at least 35% of the Company's common stock at a price of $24.50 per share, and that Morrow Sodali LLC had been engaged as its information agent. Bluefin Acquisitions went on to claim that it would, in connection therewith, file related tender offer materials with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission no later than today, Monday, February 24, 2020. However, no tender offer materials have been filed with the SEC. In addition, the company understands that Morrow Sodali has terminated its engagement with Bluefin Acquisitions and is no longer serving as information agent in connection with the purported offer. The company does not believe that this purported offer is, or was, legitimate or credible. Moreover, the company believes that the purported offeror's actions may be unlawful, and false and misleading in violation of the U.S. securities laws, because they failed to comply with the filing and disclosure requirements under those laws. We once again urge public investors to approach any further communications from the purported offeror with caution, and to rely only on tender offer materials that are properly filed with the SEC."

Reports Q4 revenue…

Reports Q4 revenue $247.7M, consensus $256.85M. CEO Sivasankaran Somasundaram says: "Since the beginning of the new year, we have seen business activity levels sequentially improve, driven by reloaded North American E&P capital budgets, continued international growth, as well as increased orders by our drill bit customers. Consolidated January 2020 revenue was 11% greater than December 2019 revenue with particular strength in Drilling Technologies, which increased 29%. Additionally, we remain focused on managing our costs, including building on our restructuring savings implemented to date, as well as driving free cash flow generation. Consistent with historical performance, for Apergy, we expect to deliver a free cash flow to revenue ratio of approximately 10% for full year 2020. While the near-term market remains volatile due to global events, we remain focused on the factors under our control. Looking ahead, our merger with ChampionX is expected to close by the end of the second quarter. We are pleased that ChampionX performed as we expected in 2019. Our integration planning is well underway, and as we make progress on our integration planning we are even more excited about our future as a combined company, and we have increased confidence in achieving our target of $75 million in annual cost synergies."

Investment banks including Citigroup (C), Credit Suisse (CS), and Nomura Holdings (NMR) have curbed trips to Italy over fears that the coronavirus outbreak that has hit the European country could quickly spread across the continent, Reuters' Pamela Barbaglia and Valentina Za report, citing four sources. Citi has told workers heading to Milan or other northern Italian cities to delay their trips or seek approval from top management if they are working on sensitive deals, while Credit Suisse has informed bankers seeking to travel to and from Northern Italy that they will need extra permissions, the authors say. Meanwhile, Nomura has taken a more rigorous approach by placing all countries affected by coronavirus deaths on a blacklist and banning employees from traveling there, the authors note.
