12:24 EDTBWLDOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street began the day in positive territory thanks in part to higher oil prices, dovish comments from NY Fed Governor Bill Dudley and a positive jobs report from ADP. The early gains were short lived, as the market saw its highest prices at the open and then drifted lower, gaining downside momentum after two reports on the services sector both pointed to a deceleration. After the Dow lost more than 100 points, the market found a level and bounced back, leaving the averages lower but off their worst levels near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., ADP estimated that private payrolls grew by 205,000 jobs in January, topping the consensus forecast for 190,000 job additions. Markit's services PMI came in at 53.2, versus the consensus 53.7 forecast. The Institute for Supply Management's non-manufacturing index came in at 53.5 for January, down from 55.3 in the previous month and below the 55.1 reading forecast by analysts. In Asia, the Caixin services PMI for China climbed to 52.4 in January from 50.2 in December, while Japan's services PMI rose to 52.4 from 51.5 in the prior month. Additionally, China's National Development and Reform Commission set its economic growth projection range for this year at 6.5%-7%, noting that attempts to curb overcapacity will increase unemployment in provinces with high output of steel and coal. In Europe, Markit's composite purchasing managers index for January declined to 53.6 from 54.3 in December. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) declined 6% after the embattled Internet company reported fourth quarter results and announced plans to simplify its product portfolio and reduce its workforce by roughly 15%. Maynard Webb, Yahoo's Chairman, said the company's board is committed to its turnaround efforts and supportive of management's plan, but also believes that exploring additional strategic alternatives is in the best interest of its shareholders, though the acknowledgment that the company will "engage on qualified strategic proposals" did little to boost its shares this morning... Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) fell 4% after reporting lower than expected revenue and stating that its same-store sales had plunged more than 14% last quarter. Additionally, the burrito chain disclosed that it was served with a subpoena broadening the scope of the previously-announced criminal investigation that was limited to a single Chipotle restaurant in California. As Chipotle shares continue to get punished over the company's food safety issues, another stock was hit today by a similar fear, as Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) slid 6% after one of its locations was named as a suspected source of new cases of people suffering from norovirus-like symptoms in suburban Kansas City. However, the company said there "is no conclusive link to [its] restaurant being the source of the illness" and that the location reopened on Wednesday after a consultation with the health department... Merck (MRK) was one of the worst performers on the Dow, sliding nearly 3% after its earnings narrowly topped expectations but its guidance for the new fiscal year fell short of expectations. Among other large cap names reporting earnings this morning, Comcast (CMCSA) rose 4% following its report, while General Motors (GM) slid 4%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Autodesk (ADSK), which rallied more than 8% after it announced a restructuring plan that involves reducing its workforce by roughly 10%. Also higher were Energizer (ENR), Spectra Energy (SE), and Avery Dennison (AVY), which gained 15%, 7%, and 7%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. Among the noteworthy losers was Lowe's (LOW), which fell 7% after it agreed to acquire Canada's RONA in a deal valued at $2.3B. Also lower were Mondelez (MDLZ), Match Group (MTCH), and MPLX (MPLX), which were down 7%, 14%, and 19%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 13.22, or 0.08%, to 16,140.32, the Nasdaq was down 48.09, or 1.06%, to 4,468.85, and the S&P 500 was down 11.42, or 0.6%, to 1,891.61.

15:50 EDTSDRLSeadrill expands cost cuts, Bloomberg says
In a Bloomberg interview published Sunday, Seadrill CEO Per Wullf said the company's cost cutting efforts this year will exceed the $200M target previously announced in November. Nearly 80% of the 2016 cuts are sustainable, Wullf told the publication. The Chief Executive noted that, in terms of the floating rig market, "we're likely to be at the end of 2017 before this starts being fun again," while adding that he would now accept a $300,000 day rate for an idle floating rig on a 12-month or longer contract.

07:36 EDTAPAAnalysts still predicting mergers as oil slump drags on, WSJ reports
Bankers and analysts have been predicting a wave of merger activity will come almost since crude prices began to fall from over $100 a barrel, but the only big acquisition by an oil major so far has been Shell's (RDS.A) purchase of BG Group (BRGYY), said The Wall Street Journal, which added that analysts still believe deal-making is likely to return this year if prices continue to languish. With Chevron (CVX) set to report today and its big peers soon to follow, analysts are expecting the four biggest publicly traded Western oil companies to have their weakest combined profits since 1998, the Journal noted. The report noted that U.S. shale oil producers, such as Apache (APA) and Whiting Petroleum (WLL), were previously targeted though potential sellers were reluctant to accept offers as they hoped for a rebound in oil prices and potential buyers wondered if any deal struck would look expensive if crude prices fell further, but "both impediments are gone now," the Journal contends.

06:45 EDTBWLDBuffalo Wild Wings downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG
BTIG analyst Peter Saleh downgraded Buffalo Wild Wings to Neutral saying he believes domestic unit growth is slowing, the shifting sports calendar could impact same-store-sales growth in the coming quarters, and 2016 consensus expectations look too high. Additionally, the analyst believes uncertain sales trends and higher wing prices are a risk to this year's earnings growth, while slowing domestic unit growth longer-term and competitive factors could pressure growth rates and valuation.
