16:28 EDTGPROOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street spent most of today's quiet session see-sawing across the flat-line before dropping sharply in the final hour of trading and closing at their lows. The market opened in negative territory but soon made a move to the upside and appeared ready to break the recent market slide that has seen the S&P lose about 5% of its value. Before the averages gained significant steam, they reversed again and moved back into negative ground. The averages moved in a fairly narrow range for most of the afternoon, before accelerating to the downside with conviction in the final hour of trading. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no economic data of note was reported and banks and bond markets were closed in observance of the Columbus Day holiday. In China, the nation's customs administration reported a trade surplus of about $31B for September. Exports in the month increased 15.3% from a year earlier, beating expectations and making for the biggest monthly increase since February 2013. Imports rose 7%, significantly outpacing the consensus projection for a 2% decline. COMPANY NEWS: The Wall Street Journal reported that CSX (CSX) was approached by a larger rival, Canadian Pacific (CP), about a possible merger. However, Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry wrote in a note to investors that a merger between the two would not be able to occur, due to high regulatory hurdles. Still, CSX rose $1.76, or 5.88%, to $31.70 following the Journal's report, while Canadian Pacific fell $4.40, or 2.32%, to $184.97... Shares of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAU) made their debut on the New York Stock Exchange and opened at $9 per share. The stock of the newly merged company closed trading down about 1% at $8.92... J.C. Penney (JCP) selected Marvin Ellison, who is currently executive vice president of stores at Home Depot (HD), to become its next CEO. The stock, which was also downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS this morning, spent much of the trading day in positive ground but moved lower late in the session and closed down 3c, or 0.42%, at $7.09. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Alnylam (ALNY), which advanced $13.83, or 18.98%, to $86.68 after the company announced data from study of its treatment for patients with familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy and Piper Jaffray raised its price target on the stock to $133 from $101 citing the trial results. Among the noteworthy losers was AutoNation (AN), which fell $4.11, or 8.01%, to $47.21 after another company in the same sector, Lithia Motors (LAD), lowered its profit outlook for the third and fourth quarter and issued a lower than expected earnings forecast for fiscal 2015. Shares of Lithia, meanwhile, plunged $16.85, or 20.84%, to $64.01. Also lower were shares of GoPro (GPRO), which fell $8.38, or 9.85%, to $76.67 after a French journalist reported that the son of racing legend Michael Schumacher attributed the severity of his father's brain injury following a skiing accident on the GoPro camera mounted to his helmet. INDEXES: The Dow fell 223.03, or 1.35%, to 16,321.07, the Nasdaq dropped 62.58, or 1.46%, to 4,213.66, and the S&P 500 declined 31.39, or 1.65%, to 1,874.74.

Stocks on Wall Street were slightly lower at midday amid light trading volume. Banks and bond markets are closed in observance of the Columbus Day holiday, though equity markets remain open. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was reported. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of a number of freight train operators rose after The Wall Street Journal reported that one of the companies in the sector, CSX (CSX), was approached by a larger rival, Canadian Pacific (CP), about a possible merger. Following the Journal's report, CSX rose 10% and Canadian Pacific advanced 1%, while Norfolk Southern (NSC) and Kansas City Southern (KSU) both climbed about 3%... Chrysler returned to the U.S. stock market, as shares of Fiat Chrysler began trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "FCAU." MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was J.C. Penney (JCP), which rose 3% after the company selected Marvin Ellison, who is currently executive vice president of stores at Home Depot (HD), to become its next CEO. Also higher were Atlas Energy (ATLS), which rose 20%, and Atlas Pipeline Partners (APL), which advanced 6%, after Targa Resources Partners (NGLS) and Targa Resources (TRGP) agreed to acquire Atlas Pipeline Partners for cash and stock valued at $38.66 per APL common unit and agreed to buy Atlas Energy following the company's spin-off of its non-midstream assets. Among the noteworthy losers was Aerohive Networks (HIVE), which plunged 30% after the company lowered its guidance for the third quarter, citing weaker-than-expected order volume near the quarter's end. Also lower were shares of GoPro (GPRO), which fell over 8% after a French journalist reported that the son of racing legend Michael Schumacher attributed the severity of his father's brain injury following a skiing accident on the GoPro camera mounted to his helmet. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 32.14, or 0.19%, to 16,511.96, the Nasdaq was down 7.97, or 0.19%, to 4,268.27, and the S&P 500 was down 6.85, or 0.36%, to 1,899.28.

The report also noted that Albert Fried views Monster Beverage (MNST) and Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) as other suitable targets for AB InBev. Reference Link

Credit card players such as American Express (AXP) and Capital One (COF), as well as banks with significant card units like JPMorgan (JPM), stand to benefit from the U.S. card industry's "sweet spot" of moderate economic growth, low interest rates and consumers who are better managing payments while growing their spending, said The Wall Street Journal, which noted that consulting firm R.K. Hammer estimates U.S. card issuers' revenue will grow 9% this year to $158.6B. Other U.S. banks with credit card units include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), and Wells Fargo (WFC) and other card companies include Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA). Reference Link
