New York, NY – GDP INSIDER – 04/20/2014.
This article discusses three companies: Sunstone Hotel Investors Inc (NYSE:SHO), Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:MNTA) and Susquehanna Bancshares Inc (NASDAQ:SUSQ)
Sunstone Hotel Investors Inc (NYSE:SHO) saw a minuscule decline of 0.25% during its last trading session to finish the day at $16.25 on light trading of 1.99 million, compared to its 30 day average trading volume of 2.14 million. The $3.39 billion market cap company, which operates as a self-managed and self-administered real estate investment trust, has been outperforming the S&P 500 over the past one year and is currently up 16.28%, compared to the index which has only gained 11.18% so far this year. With quarterly revenue growth of 18.90% year on year and quarterly earnings growth (yoy) of 400%, the stock has good investment potential, making it a hold.
Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:MNTA) compounded its recent gains by adding another 2.87% or $0.49 to finish the day at $17.57 with more than 1.982 million shares changing hands, compared to its 30 day average trading volume of 0.869 million. The biotechnology company, which uses complex systems analysis platform to understand and analyze complex chemical and biologic systems, is attracting investors’ interest after FDA approved its generic version of daily Copaxone, called Glatopa, on last Thursday. Momenta Pharmaceuticals has been having a very strong year so far, with the stock up 45.93% year to date, but is trading uncertainly at the moment, as its RSI is at 80.76 making investors nervous. With its direction uncertain at this time, it is best to hold or profit-take at this time.
Susquehanna Bancshares Inc (NASDAQ:SUSQ) retreated again on Friday after making some gains earlier in the week to close down 1.38% or $0.19 at $13.54 on heavy trading of 1.97 million, compared to its 30 day average trading volume of 1.21 million. The US based financial holding company is not performing well with quarterly revenue down 3.60% year on year and one year price target estimate of $12.39. However, the stock has gained 39.38% over the past six months, compared to the S&P 500 which has gained 36.08% over the same period, making it a hold for now with a view to buy.
