ThermoFisher's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on ThermoFisher is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $290.00 short call and a strike $310.00 long call offers a potential 21.21% return on risk over the next 14 calendar days.

Investors Clamor for Credit With New Deal Demand Off the Charts
Mon, 30 Mar 2020 21:21:43 +0000
(Bloomberg) — Investors are meeting a flood of corporate debt issuance with even greater demand, a strong sign for risk appetite as issuers continue to bring new deals.YUM! Brands Inc., brought the first U.S. high-yield offering in nearly a month, boosted the size of its deal to $600 million from $500 million amid $3 billion of orders. Oracle Corp., which was downgraded by two credit raters after announcing a deal Monday, had amassed more than $50 billion in orders for what became a $20 billion offering, according to people with knowledge of the matter.Credit markets are showing signs of thawing, as strong reception of record investment-grade issuance has trickled into the high-yield market. While market access was initially limited to only top-notch firms like Exxon Mobil Corp. and PepsiCo Inc. just two weeks ago, investors have since gotten more comfortable with riskier names, and massive demand has cut down borrowing costs.Last week, U.S. companies borrowed a record $109 billion, met with $550 billion of demand, in what one dealer called a “food fight” for new bonds. It was a similar story in Europe, where investors placed more than 310 billion euros ($340 billion) of orders for about 75 billion euros of bonds. Asia’s dollar bond market, however, hasn’t had any issuance for several weeks.“As corporates should remain keen on retaining liquidity to weather the growing pain of lockdowns, we expect issuance windows to continue to attract issuers,” Commerzbank strategists said in a note to clients this morning.Investment-grade issuers marketed massive deals. Oracle was in the market for the first time since 2017 with a $20 billion six-part offering, with maturities ranging from five to 40 years. AB InBev’s 4.5 billion euro sale included bonds due in seven, 12 and 20 years.U.S.YUM! Brands sold the first junk bond sale since March 4, one of the most positive signs of the recovery in credit to date. The investment-grade market continues to be active, with 12 deals set to price a combined $37.175 billion.Sysco also sold a jumbo transaction with maturities ranging from five to 30 years.
