DALLAS, Texas – Beacon Equity Research announces the release of Trade Alerts covering Market Movers: Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE), Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT), Level 3 Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: LVLT), Starbucks Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX), Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (Nasdaq: BBBY) and Smurfit-Stone Container Corp. (Nasdaq: SSCC).
In the Trade Alert, the author highlights Pfizer’s announcement to buy rival Wyeth for $68 billion:
“Pfizer Inc. (PFE) shares closed Monday at $15.65, down 10.32% from its previous close of $17.45. Pfizer engages in the discovery, development, manufacture and marketing of prescription medicines for humans and animals worldwide. … The world's top drugmaker recently announced it will buy rival Wyeth for $68 billion, an acquisition deal touted as the third-largest in the drug industry since 1998. According to a report, the acquisition would help Pfizer cope with a major gap in revenue in 2011, when its blockbuster Lipitor cholesterol treatment will begin to face U.S. generic competition.”
The Trade Alert author also featured Caterpillar’s disappointing fourth-quarter results, as well as its plans to cut 20,000 jobs:
“Caterpillar Inc. (CAT) shares closed Monday at $32.67, down 8.38% from its previous close of $35.66. Caterpillar manufactures and sells construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, and industrial gas turbines worldwide. … Caterpillar, an economic bellweather, recently reported its fourth-quarter net income fell to $661 million, or $1.08 per share, down from $975 million, or $1.50 a year earlier. Analysts, on average, were projecting a profit of $1.30 per share. According to a report, the 32% decline in fourth-quarter profit can be attributed to higher Machinery and Engines operating costs and a sharp decline in profit related to Financial Products more than offsetting its improved price realization and favorable tax adjustment. … Amid a downbeat outlook, Caterpillar said it has initiated actions to remove about 20,000 workers, which includes full-time employees, as well as temporary, contract and agency workers.”
