Oasis Petroleum's stock leads NYSE losers after share offering, analyst downgrade
Shares of Oasis Petroleum Inc. sank 11% on heavy volume Tuesday, after the oil and gas exploration and production company announced a public offering of common stock, and after a SunTrust Robinson Humphrey downgrade. The stock was the biggest decline on the NYSE, and volume of 43 million shares was about five times the full-day average, and enough to make the stock the most actively traded on major U.S. exchanges. The company said late Monday that it was selling 32 million shares of common stock to the public for gross proceeds of approximately $321.9 million, implying a per-share price of about $10.06. Separately, the company said late Monday it agreed to buy 20,300 acres in the Delaware Basin for $946 million, consisting of $483 million in cash and 46 million shares of common stock. SunTrust RH analyst Neal Dingmann downgraded Oasis to hold from buy, and slashed his stock price target to $11 from $14, citing the 'hefty price' the company paid to enter the Delaware Basin. The stock has plunged 41% year to date, while the SPDR Energy Select Sector ETF has slipped 7.1% and the S&P 500 has climbed 19%.

Imperva stock falls after JP Morgan downgrades to underweight
Shares of security-software firms Imperva Inc. , Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. , and Fortinet Inc. fell 3.5%, 0.3%, and 0.1%, respectively, in Tuesday morning trading, after analysts at JP Morgan downgraded the stocks. The analysts, led by Sterling Auty, now rate Imperva at underweight and both Check Point and Fortinet at neutral. Auty points to 'sales execution issues' for Check Point and Imperva; he thinks it's unlikely that Check Point will go back to 'winning consistent market share' and worries about the web-application firewall aspect of Imperva's business. Fortinet, meanwhile, has seen 'turnover in the sales and marketing ranks' that has been weighing on results, Auty wrote. He noted that market-research firm Gartner now predicts core security spending to grow at a 6% annual clip through 2021, below a previous forecast for 6.5% growth. Imperva shares have risen 4.7% so far in 2017, compared with 40% and 25% rises for Fortinet and Check Point respectively. The S&P 500 is up 19% this year.

Mastercard, FleetCor make up Goldman Sachs' top payments picks for 2018
Payments stocks on the whole have outperformed the market so far in 2017, and Goldman Sachs analysts wrote Tuesday that it's hard to find value in the sector looking ahead to the new year. The Goldman analysts, led by Tien-tsin Huang, are 'sticking with their preference' for companies that have heavy exposure to digital, money to make acquisitions, and opportunities for margin expansion. PayPal Holdings Inc. , Square Inc. , and Global Payments Inc. fit those characteristics, according to the analysts. However, they acknowledge that these stocks have 'high valuations and low margin for error.' Therefore, the firm's top picks for 2018 are Mastercard Inc. , which Goldman deems likely to 'at least maintain earnings-per-share growth,' and FleetCor Technologies , which recently completed a 'materially accretive acquisition.' Mastercard shares have gained 46% so far this year, while FleetCor's stock is up 34%. The S&P 500 Index has risen 19% in that time.

Trinity Industries to spin off infrastructure businesses, raises share buyback program to $500 million
Trinity Industries Inc. said Tuesday its board has approved a plan to spin off its infrastructure-related businesses in a move expected to be completed in the second half of 2018. The deal is expected to result in two separate public companies. Trinity Industries will operate rail leasing, manufacturing and services business, and a separate company will be focused on infrastructure. 'The new infrastructure company will have the balance sheet strength and capital allocation flexibility to pursue growth through acquisitions and to capitalize on the large and growing market opportunity in North American infrastructure spending,' the Dallas-based company said. The board has also approved a doubling of the company's share buyback authorization to $500 million. Shares rose 1.4% premarket, and have gained 19% in 2017, while the S&P 500 has gained 19%.

Shares of Boeing Co. were surging early Tuesday, helping to power the Dow Jones Industrial Average to a triple-digit climb in morning trade.

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq Composite Index were trading at break-even levels.

Verizon stock jumps toward 11-month high after Instinet upgrade
Verizon Communications Inc. shares surged 1.9% in Tuesday morning trading, putting them on course to close at the highest level since January, after analysts at Instinet upgraded the stock to buy from neutral. 'Better visibility into subscriber growth, rising average revenue per user, and cost control fuels our confidence earnings per share growth will resume in 2018,' wrote the analysts, led by Jeffrey Kvaal. He believes the company, which announced a new streaming arrangement with the NFL on Monday, could launch an over-the-top streaming service by the end of the year and has some advantages over its peers in doing so. 'Unlike AT&T it need not bundle to reduce churn or be overly mindful of its existing video base as its pay-TV base is minimal relative to rivals,' he wrote. The firm raised its price target on Verizon shares to $61, from $47. Verizon's stock has fallen 1.3% so far in 2017, compared with a 19% gain for the S&P 500 .
