16:41 EDTCLFOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
Stocks began the session sharply higher and remained in positive territory as prospects of a Greek bailout deal and the removal of a potential "Grexit" brought investors back into the market. The move was broad based, with each of the major indexes advancing more than 1%. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In Europe, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras agreed to European demands for immediate action to qualify for as much as $95B in financial assistance. The pact averted a worst-case scenario, but only established the basis for negotiations and the Greek parliament now has until Wednesday to pass into law key creditor demands. Greek banks, which have been closed for two weeks as the saga has unfolded, will stay closed until at least Wednesday. In China, exports rose 2.1% from a year earlier during June and imports dropped 6.7%, leaving a trade surplus of $45.8B for the month, said the nation's customs administration. In the U.S., the government posted a budget surplus of $51.8B in June, which was down 27% from the surplus of $70.5B in June of 2014 but above the expected $50.5B surplus forecast by economists polled by Bloomberg. COMPANY NEWS: Marathon Petroleum (MPC) advanced $4.29, or 7.87%, to $58.78 after MPLX (MPLX), the company's fee-based master limited partnership, agreed to acquire MarkWest Energy (MWE) in a cash and stock deal that implies a total enterprise value for MarkWest of approximately $20B, including the assumption of approximately $4.2B in debt. MarkWest, whose common unitholders will receive 1.09 MPLX common units and a one-time cash payment of approximately $3.37 per MarkWest common unit for total consideration of $78.64 per MarkWest common unit, rose $8.26, or 13.82%, to $68.01 after the deal was announced, while MPLX units dropped $10.02, or 14.51%, to $59.03... Several research firms started coverage on Fitbit (FIT) following its recent IPO, with some taking bullish stances on its prospects and several others opting for a more cautious tone. The bulls may have been more convincing for the moment, as shares of the exercise tracker maker advanced $1.38, or 3.28%, to close at $43.48. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were shares of iron ore related companies, with Cliffs (CLF) advancing 22c, or 6.67%, to $3.52, Rio Tinto (RIO) gaining $1.53, or 3.91%, to $40.67, and BHP Billiton (BHP) rising $1.01, or 2.56%, to $40.51 after Vale (VALE) announced it will cut its iron ore output by 25M metric tons beginning this month. Vale ADRs saw similar moves, ending the session up 8.66% to $5.90. Also higher were shares of Anacor (ANAC), which gained $47.32, or 55.93%, to $131.93 after reporting that its crisaborole dermatitis treatment achieved "statistically significant" results on all primary and secondary endpoints in a clinical trial. Among the noteworthy losers was Brocade (BRCD), which fell 42c, or 3.71%, to $10.90 after RBC Capital cut its rating on the stock to Sector Perform and lowered its price target, citing storage challenges and disruptions at OEM partners. Also lower was Ascena (ASNA), which dropped $2.09, or 12.77%, to $14.28 after cutting its fiscal 2015 earnings guidance, though both Oppenheimer and SunTrust called the selloff a buying opportunity. INDEXES: The Dow gained 217.27, or 1.22%, to 17,977.68, the Nasdaq rose 73.82, or 1.48%, to 5,071.51, and the S&P 500 added 22.98, or 1.11%, to 2,099.60.

09:02 EDTAAPLApple outlook still positive, says Cantor
Noting that Apple's stock has dropped over the past couple of weeks, Cantor blames the retreat on the sharp sell-off in China's stock market, a sloppy tech tape and concerns regarding Apple Watch. However, the firm thinks the company's momentum in China will not be derailed by the stock market retreat, while supply issues have restrained sales of the Apple Watch. The firm believes that Apple Watch will be the top gift this holiday season. It keeps a $195 price target and Buy rating on the shares.
