2018-05-29 marketrealist
Previously in this series, we looked at copper miners’ first-quarter production and 2018 guidance. In this article, we’ll look at their unit production costs. When commodity prices fall, high-cost producers become unprofitable much sooner than their peers, which are placed more favorably on the cost curve. It’s, therefore, crucial for commodity producers to have competitive cost structures.

Are There Any Bullish Triggers for Copper Prices?

2018-05-04 marketrealist
So far, copper prices have been subdued in 2018. Copper has seen a sharp rally since 1Q16. Copper has been struggling to hold the $7,000 per metric ton price level this year. Ample supplies, highlighted by low treatment and refining charges and rising inventories, have been bearish drivers for copper prices. Trade friction between the US and China hasn’t helped copper’s cause either. Copper miners including Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) and Antofagasta (ANTO) have also followed copper lower.

ARWR: Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals Analysis and Research Report

3h - Asif

Business Arrowhead develops medicines that treat intractable diseases by silencing the genes that cause them. Using a broad portfolio of RNA chemistries and efficient modes of delivery, Arrowhead therapies trigger the RNA interference mechanism to induce rapid, deep and durable knockdown of target genes. RNA interference, or RNAi, is a mechanism present in living cells that inhibits the expression of a specific gene, thereby affecting the production of a specific protein. Deemed to be one of the most important recent discoveries in life science with the potential to transform medicine, the discoverers of RNAi were awarded a Nobel Prize in 2006 for their work. Arrowhead’s RNAi-based therapeutics leverage this natural pathway of gene silencing. In fiscal 2017, Arrowhead refocused its resources on therapeutics that exclusively utilize the company’s Targeted RNAi Molecule (TRiMTM) platform technology. Therapeutics built on the TRiMTM platform have demonstrated high levels of pha...
