12:18 EDTATOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, with some attributing the move to noted Fed watcher Jon Hilsenrath of The Wall Street Journal giving the opinion that he does not believe the central bank will drop the language that interest rates will "remain low for an extended period of time" when it issues its latest policy statement tomorrow. The averages began the session in negative territory and appeared to be heading for another listless day of trading. The market drifted lower during the opening hour but the Dow and S&P crossed into positive ground and the Nasdaq eventually followed. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Producer Price Index was unchanged in August, as expected. The core reading, which excludes food and energy, increased 0.1%, also matching expectations. Of note, the Fed's FOMC rate setting group kicked off its two-day policy meeting. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) slid over 1% after Chinese-language 21st Century Business Herald reportedly said the company might not get the necessary approval to launch its new iPhone 6 models throughout China until next year after failing to come to an agreement with a regulator in the nation. Shares of China Mobile (CHL), which is buy far the largest phone carrier in China, slipped 2% after the report... Glimcher Realty Trust (GRT) surged 29% after it agreed to sell itself to fellow REIT Washington Prime Group (WPG) for $14.20 per share. Washington has agreed to buy Glimcher for about $4.3B in a cash and stock deal. Glimcher shareholders will receive $10.40 in cash and 0.1989 of a share of Washington stock upon the closing of the transaction, the companies stated. As part of the deal, Simon Property Group (SPG), which completed its separation of Washington Prime Group this May, agreed to buy two shopping malls owned by Glimcher for $1.09B in cash. Shares of fellow mall owning REITs CBL & Associates (CBL), Rouse Properties (RSE) and Pennsylvania REIT (PEI) rose following the deal announcement. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Bill Barrett (BBG), which rose 12% after selling natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids assets in the Piceance Basin in Colorado for $525M to Vanguard Natural (VNR). Vanguard Natural also gained 1% following the deal announcement. Among the noteworthy losers was VirnetX (VHC), which plunged nearly 50% after an appeals court vacated a jury’s damages award in its patent case with Apple. Also lower were shares of Atlantic Power (AT), which dropped 32% after announcing that it concluded a sale or merger of the company is not in the best interests of the company or its stakeholders and the company cut its annual dividend. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 88.18, or 0.52%, to 17,119.32, the Nasdaq was up 16.11, or 0.36%, to 4,535.01, and the S&P 500 was up 11.94, or 0.6%, to 1,996.07.

07:49 EDTATAtlantic Power cuts annual dividend to C12c from C40c
As previously disclosed, the allocation of a significant portion of the company's available cash flow to mandatory debt amortization reduces the amount of cash flow available for other corporate purposes. As part of the strategic review process, the board, together with management, assessed the best uses of currently anticipated Free Cash Flow in order to meet the Company's objectives, including enhancing the value of existing assets, delevering its balance sheet to improve both its cost of capital and ability to compete for new investments, and providing a current return to its shareholders. After taking into consideration all of these objectives, theboard has determined to set a dividend level of C12c per share on an annual basis, equivalent to approximately $13M annually. Going forward, Atlantic Power intends to pay dividends on a quarterly basis. As previously announced, the monthly dividend of C33c declared August 15, 2014 will be paid September 30, 2014. The Company will then move to a quarterly dividend rate of C$3c, with the first quarterly dividend to be declared in November and paid at the end of December 2014.
