12:39 EDTNFLXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday amid a number of big deals and a much talked about proposed deal in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as another wave of earnings reports. The market opened quietly but on the positive side of the ledger as investors pored over the multitude of quarterly reports issued after the close last night and earlier today. Near noon the market stood near its session highs and is pointing toward its sixth consecutive positive close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales slipped 0.2% to a 4.59M rate in March, versus expectation for them to have fallen 1% to a 4.56M rate. The Richmond Fed manufacturing survey for April had a reading of 7, beating the consensus forecast for a reading of 2. COMPANY NEWS: Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) teamed with Bill Ackman's hedge fund Pershing Square to make a hostile takeover offer for Allergan (AGN), sending shares of both companies higher. Allergan confirmed it received the offer of $48.30 in cash and 0.83 shares of Valeant stock for each of its own shares, which it said it will evaluate with the help of its advisers. Analysts' opinion on the fallout varied, with one firm suggesting Allergan could pursue its own takeover of Shire (SHPG) or Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ) as a defense, and another saying a rival big pharma company, such as Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) or Merck (MRK), could launch a competing bid for Allergan. Shares of Allergan led all gainers on the S&P 500, rising 16%, while Valeant shares gained more than 6%... A number of other big drug makers made news with a string of deals, as Novartis (NVS) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) both reshaped their companies via a trio of agreements. Novartis will acquire GSK's oncology products for a $14.5B payment and up to $1.5B contingent future payments, Novartis will sells its Vaccines business, excluding flu, to GSK for $7.1B plus royalties, and the two agreed to tie-up their consumer healthcare businesses through a joint venture. In a separate transaction, Novartis agreed to divest its Animal Health Division to Eli Lilly (LLY) for about $5.4B. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were streaming video service Netflix (NFLX), which advanced almost 6%, and motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson (HOG), which rose 8%. Companies that slid following their earnings reports included printer maker Lexmark (LXK), which fell over 11%, and Pentair (PNR), which dropped almost 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 106.77, or 0.65%, to 16,556.02, the Nasdaq was up 45.95, or 1.11%, to 4,167.50, and the S&P 500 was up 11.59, or 0.62%, to 1,883.48.
