i-Spy Global Industrials Weekly-Daikin differentiation; Bilfinger throws in the towel on Power; One-sided Aero Automation-Daikin differentiation: Our Japan Team visited Daikin's main plant for industrial-use AC systems in Osaka. The trip underlined a number of attributes which could enable it to take share in HVAC, such as: (i) In-house refrigerant development - Daikin is unique in this respect, and having launched the world's first R-32 refrigeration-based Resi AC in 2012, ~20% of its AC systems globally now use it (such as the new SkyAir commercial offering), and it will be included in its VRV units; (ii) Superior temperature control technology and installation vs. Chinese peers; (iii) Heat exchangers - Daikin plans to double the heat exchanger surface area on new industrial units to increase AC efficiency, and introduce new heat exchangers that will shrink the size of outdoor units.

Drug Distributors-2Q Branded Rx Inflation Remains Above 12% Bolstered by Strong Sequential Increases-■ Bottom Line: Our analysis suggests that 2Q15 branded drug price inflation remained above the 12% level y/y and sequentially increased 230 bps, the highest sequential second quarter increase in the historic period we track. We are noting a continued acceleration in the pace and magnitude of y/y and q/q brand drug price inflation, representing an increasingly important tailwind for the drug distributors. 43 drugs out of the top 140 drugs we track witnessed an increase in price in 2Q15, marking another record for number of increases during a 2Q. As we have stated in the past, we believe branded manufacturers will continue to increase prices in the U.S. (positively impacting the drug distributors), as these manufacturers look for ways to offset volume declines due to an accelerating patent expiration schedule and increase the monetization of recent approvals. As such, we continue to point to this environment of double-digit price inflation as a key element of our bullish thesis on the drug distribution sector.

martyc: For anyone looking to find an entry point into SGMO, I'm almost hoping is sells off in next few days so I can add more. They are really clicking but the fact they haven't signed new deals might cause some to exit. Watching as I have room for trading shs
