IAC/InterActiveCorp. (IAC) has completed the distribution of its 80.7% stake in Match Group, Inc. (MTCH) aftermarket on June 30, 2020, resulting in the boost to MTCH's free float (which precludes a potential inclusion on the S&P 500 Index) and the continued execution of IAC's "anti-conglomerate" philosophy when it comes to its investments. We're booking our strong profits in IAC and we recommend investors to continue to hold MTCH for long-term benefits.

We entered Synnex Corp. (SNX) on the back of insider buying and ahead of its upcoming Spinoff (expected Q4 2020) at the $87 level at the beginning of May 2020. Since then, following a strong earnings beat and a significant rally in a short two months, we are booking our pre-Spin profits of +36% in SNX, with a view to revisit the name once further clarity on the Spinoff is disclosed by the company.

Yesterday was the first day of trading following the unique European Spin-Merger between Metso Corp. (MEO1V FH) and Outotec Corp. (OTE1V FH). This transaction created what is now Neles Corp.

Meanwhile, NELES (Parent) looks fully valued. Read on for more on their first day's performance.

Alerts are now attached to the distribution emails for convenience. Synnex Corp. (SNX) released strong Q2FY20 earnings yesterday (June 25), beating estimates and providing impressive guidance for next quarter. Since our recommendation on May 1, 2020, on the back of a key insider buying pattern, the stock has returned +19% (vs. the S&P Index's +9% in the same period), and we believe several key factors provide further upside ahead of its planned Q4 2020 Spinoff.
