16:26 EDTAAPL, LCC, AAMRQ, OSIR, JOSB, UAL, DAL, PGEM, IOCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher following comments from a regional Fed president suggesting a September "taper" may be unlikely. The Fedspeak appeared to offset worse than expected retail sales data released earlier in the day. The Nasdaq logged the day's largest gain, boosted by a surge in shares of Apple (AAPL), which climbed following the disclosure by activist investor Carl Icahn of a large stake. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales edged up 0.2% in July, missing expectations for a 0.8% increase. Retail sales excluding autos increased 0.5%, however, which was a bit above the 0.4% rise expected for that reading. Import prices rebounded to rise 0.2% in July after being down in the prior month, while export prices slipped 0.1% in July. Business inventories were flat in June, versus expectations for them to grow 0.2%. Comments made by Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart near midday sent the averages higher, as Lockhart largely ruled out a September tapering of the Fed's asset purchases given recent economic and employment data. COMPANY NEWS: Apple gained $22.21, or 4.75%, to $489.57 after Carl Icahn announced on his Twitter account that he has built a "large" position in the iPhone and iPad maker. Icahn also tweeted that he had a conversation with Apple CEO Tim Cook today, during which he told Cook a larger share buyback should be done now. A late afternoon headline from Bloomberg said that Icahn's position in Apple is over $1B... The Department of Justice filed an antitrust lawsuit seeking to block the proposed merger of US Airways (LCC) and American Airlines' bankrupt parent AMR Corp. (AAMRQ), saying the tie-up will result in passengers paying higher fares and receiving less service. Following the news, AMR shares fell $2.64, or 45.44%, to $3.17 and US Airways fell $2.46, or 13.07%, to $16.36. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Osiris Therapeutics (OSIR), which saw its shares more than double, adding $14.78, or 138.65%, to $25.44 after a clinical trial of its treatment for diabetic foot ulcers met the pre-specified stopping rules for "overwhelming" efficacy. Also higher were shares of JoS. A. Bank (JOSB), up $5.03, or 12.48%, to $45.33 after BeaconLight Capital sent a letter to the company's board saying its stock could be worth $70 if the company took "a few simple steps." Among the noteworthy losers were a number of airline stocks, including United Continental (UAL), down $2.48, or 7.47%, to $30.73, and Delta Air Lines (DAL), down $1.49, or 7.08%, to $19.55 after the DoJ filed to block the proposed merger between US Airways and AMR. Also lower following their quarterly reports were Ply Gem Holdings (PGEM), down $3.66, or 19.34%, to $15.26, and InterOil (IOC), down $8.47, or 10.09%, to $75.51. INDEXES: The Dow was up 31.33, or 0.20%, to 15,451.01; the Nasdaq was up 14.49, or 0.39%, to 3,684.44; and the S&P 500 was up 4.69, or 0.28%, to 1,694.16.

08:19 EDTDAL, UALFAA issues NOTAM restricting U.S. operations from flying over Syria
The Federal Aviation Administration issued a new Notice To Airmen restricting U.S. operators from flying in the Damascus Flight Information Region, which includes all of Syria. The FAA said, "This replaces the current NOTAM in place that strongly advises U.S. operators against flying in that airspace and requires them to contact the FAA before they operate in that airspace. Based on an updated assessment of the risk associated with such operations and the lack of any requests from operators wishing to fly in this airspace, we believe it prudent to prohibit U.S. operators from flying into, out of, and over Syria. The ongoing armed conflict and volatile security environment in Syria poses a serious potential threat to civil aviation. Armed extremist groups in Syria are known to be equipped with a variety of anti-aircraft weapons which have the capability to threaten civilian aircraft. Opposition groups have successfully shot down Syrian military aircraft using these anti-aircraft weapon systems during the course of the conflict. Opposition elements have previously warned civilian air carriers against providing service to Syria. Due to the presence of anti-aircraft weapons among the extremist groups and ongoing fighting in various locations throughout Syria, there is a continuing significant potential threat to civil aviation operating in Syrian airspace." Publicly traded companies in the airline industry include American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL).
