16:49 EDTSBUXS&P ends week little changed amid earnings deluge
The S&P 500 finished little changed this week as mixed U.S. economic data and continued geopolitical uncertainty offset strong earnings from a number of major companies and upbeat overseas economic data. MACRO NEWS: U.S. economic data was mixed, as fewer than expected jobless claims were reported and durable goods orders for June were slightly higher than expected, but new home sales for June and a preliminary purchasing managers' index for July came in below expectations... Investors received some positive economic news from overseas, as HSBC's preliminary China purchasing managers' index for July reached an 18-month high. Meanwhile, a preliminary PMI for the euro zone for July came in at 54, versus 52.8 in June... Ongoing conflicts between Israel and Hamas and Russia and Ukraine kept investors on edge, with Friday reports indicating that no truce accord had been reached in Israel and that Russia was building up its troop presence along the Ukrainian border. COMPANY NEWS: Among the notable companies whose stocks rose after they reported quarterly results were Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Allergan (AGN) and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG). Notable companies whose stocks sold off following their results included Netflix (NFLX), Harley-Davidson (HOG), General Motors (GM), Boeing (BA), McDonald's (MCD) and Pandora (P)... McDonald's was also hit this week by revelations that its restaurants in China had sold expired meat that was allegedly intentionally supplied by a China-based company. Yum! Brands (YUM) and a provider of products to Starbucks (SBUX) are also believed to have bought and sold expired meat from the supplier... In M&A news, Bloomberg reported that real estate website operator Zillow (Z) held talks about buying its rival, Trulia (TRLA). Both stocks surged. Shares of SodaStream (SODA) also rallied after Bloomberg reported that the company is in talks about selling itself to an investment firm that would take the beverage system maker private... On Monday, hedge fund manager Bill Ackman promised on CNBC that his presentation about Herbalife (HLF) would show why the company "is going to collapse." But the shares actually surged higher during and immediately after Ackman's presentation. Ackman has a large short position in the stock and notably alleged it is a pyramid scheme... BlackBerry's (BBRY) CEO told the Financial Times that his company was in early talks about partnering with companies to target the enterprise markets, in order to counter a recently announced partnership between Apple and IBM (IBM). INDEXES: For the week, the Dow fell 0.83% to 16,960.57, the Nasdaq rose 0.4% to 4,449.56, and the S&P was flat at 1,978.34.

16:22 EDTMNSTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the trading day in negative territory and remained there through nearly the whole session. The market action was influenced more by the geopolitical events in Russia and Israel than by the upcoming avalanche of earnings scheduled for release throughout the week. Despite the weak open and subsequent drop during the first hour of trading, the market drifted off its lows and managed to pare its losses, even turning mixed for a short time. The averages dipped again heading into the bell, though they closed well of their worst levels. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed's National Activity Index dipped to 0.12 in June from a reading of 0.16 in May. COMPANY NEWS: Allergan (AGN) rose $3.74, or 2.23%, to $171.14 after the company's Q2 results and its FY14 outlook beat expectations. The company, which is working to fend off a proposed acquisition by Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX), also announced plans to cut its workforce by 13%, or about 1,500 employees, as part of a broader restructuring effort. In related news, Valeant announced it has contacted both the SEC and Canadian financial authorities regarding Allergan's "apparent attempt to mislead investors and manipulate the market for Valeant common shares by continuing to make false and misleading statements regarding Valeant's business." Later in the day, Bill Ackman of Pershing Square, who is partnering with Valeant in its attempt to buy Allergan, called the restructuring a "Valeant light" effort and said Valeant does not need to raise its bid for Allergan. Ackman explained that he believes that shares of Valeant will rise around $10 should the Allergan board engage in takeover talks with the company and that a $10 share rise would boost Valeant's bid for Allergan by $8 per share. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Extreme Networks (EXTR), which rose 69c, or 15.79%, to $5.06 after the company raised its Q4 earnings per share outlook and narrowed its Q4 revenue view. Also higher were shares of EMC (EMC), which advanced $1.35, or 5.0%, to $28.33 after the Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources, that activist investor Elliott Management has taken a stake of over $1B in the data-storage company and plans to push it to break itself up and spin off VMware (VMW), which is 80% owned by EMC. Shares of VMware fell $2.36, or 2.48%, to $92.95 following the Journal's report. Among the other noteworthy losers was Monster Beverage (MNST), which fell $3.07, or 4.53%, to $64.74 after Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock, citing slowing U.S. trends and balanced valuation. Also lower were shares of Yum! Brands (YUM), which fell $3.29, or 4.25%, to $74.13 after Associated Press reported that the company's KFC brand and McDonald's (MCD) were sold expired beef and chicken in China from food supplier Husi Food. Shares of McDonald's, which is scheduled to report on its quarter before tomorrow's market open, slid $1.44, or 1.45%, to $97.55. INDEXES: The Dow fell 48.45, or 0.28%, to 17,051.73, the Nasdaq dropped 7.44, or 0.17%, to 4,424.70, and the S&P 500 declined 4.59, or 0.23%, to 1,973.63.

07:06 EDTOCNAltisource Solutions pullback a buying opportunity, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray views the recent pullback in shares of Altisource Solutions (ASPS) as a buying opportunity. Piper says shares recently sold off 10% due to some concerns around Ocwen Financial's (OCN) Homeward origination business joining Ellie Mae's Total Quality Loan Program. Piper believes Altisource's relationship with Ocwen remains "very strong" and it reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock with a $156 price target.
