12:16 EDTCSXOn 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. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 32.14, or 0.19%, to 16,511.96, the Nasdaq was down 7.97, or 0.19%, to 4,268.27, and the S&P 500 was down 6.85, or 0.36%, to 1,899.28.

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

07:53 EDTGOOGYouTube changes have diffused much of tension with copyright holders, FT says
YouTube, which implemented Content ID in 2007 to help producers manage their rights and generate revenues from copyright-infringing content, has hit $1B in payments to companies that participate in the program and Fred von Lohmann, legal director for copyright at Google, credits the program for diffusing much of the tension the site previously had with copyright holders, reported Financial Times. Via Content ID, copyright owners can “monetize” their content by allowing ads to be sold against it or have the video blocked and taken down and von Lohmann told Financial Times that the "vast majority" choose to monetize.
