Why Traders Are Talking About Chevron, Adobe, Petrobras, and More

Clovis Oncology Inc (NASDAQ:CLVS) is in the spotlight after the biotech surged by 12% on Tuesday on strong volume. Although no fundamental news drove Tuesday’s bullish price action, the stock has increased before on takeover speculation and likely did so yesterday. Analysts and writers have previously speculated that Clovis might be interesting to companies such as Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:GILD), among others, due to rucaparib’s potential (along with the other drug candidates in Clovis’ pipeline). Given the historical poor performance of buying takeover rumor stocks, there is no guarantee that the bullish price action in Clovis will continue, or end up paying off. Mitchell Blutt‘s Consonance Capital Management initiated a new position of over 2.9 million shares in Clovis Oncology Inc (NASDAQ:CLVS) in the second quarter.

Guidance was also strong, with Adobe’s management expecting fiscal year 2016 adjusted EPS of $2.94-to-$3.00 on revenue of $5.8 billion-to-$5.85 billion. 58 funds had a long position in Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ:ADBE) at the end of the second quarter, down by five funds from the end of the first quarter.
