Chesapeake Energy says top investor distributed shares, stock rallies in late trading
Chesapeake Energy Corp. explained a potential reason for the latest big drop for its beleaguered stock late Tuesday, sending shares higher in late trading. In a news release, the company announced that NGP Energy Capital Management LLC, distributed its 310.8 million shares to the partners of investment funds that NGP manages before the market opened Tuesday. According to FactSet, the 310.8 million shares is the largest stake held in the company at 15.9%, though it lists the owner by a slightly different name, Natural Gas Partners LLC. "Chesapeake continues to strongly believe our current capital and operating program, coupled with the planned 30% reduction in capital expenditures in 2020, will strengthen the financial position of the company for the long term," Chief Executive Doug Lawler said in Tuesday's announcement. Chesapeake shares fell to their lowest prices in more than 25 years on Tuesday, continuing a losing streak that has destroyed its valuation. In late trading, Chesapeake shares gained 7.3% after the announcement.

Shares of Amarin rise on favorable opinion from FDA committee
Shares of Amarin Corp. rose about 20% on Nasdaq-leading volume after a Food and Drug Administration committee released documents saying that the company' prescription fish-oil pill Vascepa has a "favorable benefit/risk profile" for a cardiovascular indication. The FDA's Endocrinologic and Metabolic Drugs Advisory Committee is expected to meet Thursday to discuss the company's application for the new indication. Amarin's net product revenue rose 104% to $112.3 million in the third quarter of 2019, up from $55 million in the like-period a year ago. That increase was driven by higher sales of Vascepa, Amarin's only FDA-approved drug. The company also said last week that it plans to double the size of its sales force to 800 from 400 in preparation of a potential FDA approval for the new indication. The FDA action date for approval is Dec. 28. Shares of Amarin are up 41.51% year-to-date, while the S&P 500 has risen 23%.

Dow transports dragged down by CSX and Norfolk Southern stocks, as Dow industrials gains
The Dow Jones Transportation Average slumped 12 points, or 0.1%, in morning trading Tuesday, to buck the gains in the broader market indexes, with the shares of East-coast based railroad operators CSX Corp. and Norfolk Southern Corp. the biggest drags. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 39 points, or 0.1%. CSX's stock fell 1.3%, with the 98-cent price decline cutting the Dow transports' price by about 6 points; Norfolk's stock fell 0.5%, and the 95-cent price decline also shaved about 6 points of the Dow transports' price. CSX was downgraded by Deutsche Bank to hold from buy, and the stock price target was lowered to $74 from $82, citing a particular concern over lower coal shipments. In the note, analyst Amit Mehrotra wrote: "Importantly, this downgrade should not be extrapolated more broadly to our U.S. Transportation coverage universe, but rather specifically to Eastern rails (CSX and NSC), which have disproportionate exposure to export coal markets."
