14:14 EDTAAPL, TRV, HIG, PCLN, NFLX, CB, TWGP, SBUX, AIG, ACE, TRIPMarket set to end week higher as earnings, China data boost shares
Stocks are set to end the abbreviated trading week slightly higher, as better than expected earnings from a number of companies and positive Chinese economic data lifted shares, despite the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy and uncertainty about the upcoming U.S. elections... MACRO NEWS: Hurricane Sandy killed at least 98 people; left millions without electricity in the New York area; flooded Lower Manhattan, the New Jersey Shore, and other areas; knocked out much of the region's mass transportation infrastructure for several days; forced stock exchanges to close on Monday and Tuesday; and caused a gasoline shortage. Hurricane Sandy will probably cost insurance companies a total of $10B-$20B, research firm Equecat said... The economy created 171,000 net new non-farm jobs last month, versus the consensus estimate of 125,000. Meanwhile, China reported earlier in the week that its Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 50.2 in October from 49.8 in September...

16:21 EDTNFLXStocks end week little changed as data, deals offset bond yield jumps
Stocks ended the week little changed as a number of M&A deals and a few relatively strong economic data points offset worries about rising bond yields. MACRO NEWS: U.S. weekly jobless claims came in better than expected and reached the lowest four-week average level in 15 years... In Europe, the combined GDP of the 19 eurozone countries grew 0.4% in the first quarter, which was a bit weaker than the 0.5% consensus growth forecast but a pickup from the 0.3% growth pace of the final quarter of last year. Of note, all four of the euro zone's largest economies recorded growth in the same quarter for the first time since the first half of 2010... The People's Bank of China reduced its one year interest rate by 0.25%, marking the third time in the last six months that the central bank has cut benchmark rates... Bond yields surged in many of the world's largest economies, raising worries about inflation and putting pressure on stocks in the beginning of the week. COMPANY NEWS: There was a significant amount of M&A activity again this week, with the headliner being Verizon's (VZ) deal to acquire AOL (AOL) for $50 per share in a transaction valued at $4.4B. Danaher (DHR) agreed to buy purification technologies supplier Pall Corporation (PLL) for $127.20 per share in cash. Danaher also announced that it plans to split itself into two publicly traded companies. Energy infrastructure company Williams (WMB) announced a simplification deal to buy its affiliate Williams Partners (WPZ) for $13.9B in an all-stock transaction. Energy exploration company Noble Energy (NBL) agreed to acquire Rosetta Resources (ROSE) in an all-stock deal. Noble is buying Rosetta for $2.1B in stock plus the assumption of Rosetta's net debt of $1.8B... Alibaba (BABA) acquired a 9.3% stake in Zulily (ZU), an e-commerce retailer geared toward women. A person familiar with the matter reportedly told the Wall Street Journal that the Chinese e-commerce giant is not pursuing an outright acquisition of the U.S. company, however... Shares of Netflix (NFLX) jumped Friday and hit a new all-time high after Bloomberg reported that the company is in talks with Wasu Media, a Chinese media company backed by Alibaba Executive Chairman Jack Ma, about forming a partnership to bring its content to China... Nelson Peltz's Trian Fund Management lost its proxy fight with DuPont (DD) as Trian did not succeed in getting its nominees elected to the DuPont board.
