12:16 EDTHDOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly lower at midday amid light trading volume. Banks and bond markets are closed in observance of the Columbus Day holiday, though equity markets remain open. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was reported. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of a number of freight train operators rose after The Wall Street Journal reported that one of the companies in the sector, CSX (CSX), was approached by a larger rival, Canadian Pacific (CP), about a possible merger. Following the Journal's report, CSX rose 10% and Canadian Pacific advanced 1%, while Norfolk Southern (NSC) and Kansas City Southern (KSU) both climbed about 3%... Chrysler returned to the U.S. stock market, as shares of Fiat Chrysler began trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "FCAU." MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was J.C. Penney (JCP), which rose 3% after the company selected Marvin Ellison, who is currently executive vice president of stores at Home Depot (HD), to become its next CEO. Also higher were Atlas Energy (ATLS), which rose 20%, and Atlas Pipeline Partners (APL), which advanced 6%, after Targa Resources Partners (NGLS) and Targa Resources (TRGP) agreed to acquire Atlas Pipeline Partners for cash and stock valued at $38.66 per APL common unit and agreed to buy Atlas Energy following the company's spin-off of its non-midstream assets. Among the noteworthy losers was Aerohive Networks (HIVE), which plunged 30% after the company lowered its guidance for the third quarter, citing weaker-than-expected order volume near the quarter's end. Also lower were shares of GoPro (GPRO), which fell over 8% after a French journalist reported that the son of racing legend Michael Schumacher attributed the severity of his father's brain injury following a skiing accident on the GoPro camera mounted to his helmet.

10:12 EDTHDHome Depot bench deep, Ellison departure not surprising, says RW Baird
RW Baird said it is not surprised to see Marvin Ellison leaving Home Depot (HD) since he was likely in the running for the CEO post that went to someone else, but the firm expects a smooth internal transition and noted that it views the company's management bench as deep.

08:50 EDTNFLXNetflix charging extra for 4K Ultra HD content, Variety reports
Netflix will require subscribers to pay its most expensive service tier for 4K Ultra HD content, reports Variety. Subscribers must sign up for the "family" plan at $11.99 monthly, which allows for simultaneous streaming of up to four programs. The reason for the change was that producing and acquiring 4K content costs more that conventional HD, so it has repositioned Ultra HD as a premium offering. Reference Link
