16:20 EDTCOVOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower after the U.S. took new action to clamp down on tax inversion deals and led airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, while Europe reported weaker than expected manufacturing data. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA's home price index rose 0.1% in July to 212.7, missing expectations for an increase of 0.5%. Markit's preliminary manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for September came in at 57.9, slightly below the consensus forecast for a 58.0 reading. In China, HSBC's flash manufacturing PMI rose to 50.5 from a final reading of 50.2 in August, better than expectations. In Europe, Markit's composite flash PMI for the eurozone dipped to a nine-month low of 52.3, missing expectations for it to hold steady with its 52.5 reading for August. COMPANY NEWS: The shares of a number of companies that have announced or been speculated as targets in tax inversion deals fell after the U.S. Treasury last night issued new regulations that will make such deals less attractive. AstraZeneca (AZN), which has previously turned down an offer to be acquired by the U.S.'s Pfizer (PFE), sank $3.54, or 4.74%, to $71.13 despite a Bloomberg report that said Pfizer is still considering pursuing a deal with the U.K. drugmaker. AbbVie (ABBV), which has a deal in progress to acquire Shire (SHPG) and thus move its tax domicile to Ireland, fell $1.15, or 1.96%, to $57.56, while Shire shares slid $5.56, or 2.17%, to $250.74. Medtronic (MDT), which is pursuing its own inversion deal with Covidien (COV), dropped $1.90, or 2.88%, to $64.08. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Herbalife (HLF), which rose $3.88, or 9.65%, to $44.09, bouncing back from a pullback yesterday that had been attributed to rumors of Carl Icahn selling out of his stake in the company. Also higher was Plug Power (PLUG), which rose 40c, or 9.57%, to $4.58 after the company's CEO gave FY15 revenue guidance that was above the consensus Street view in an interview with the Albany Business Review. Among the noteworthy losers was Ascena Retail (ASNA), which dropped $2.78, or 16.82%, to $13.75 after the apparel retailer's fourth quarter results and fiscal 2015 profit outlook trailed analysts' consensus estimates. Also lower were shares of used car retailer CarMax (KMX), which fell $5.01, or 9.49%, to $47.80 after the company reported sluggish comparable used car sales in its second quarter. INDEXES: The Dow declined 116.81, or 0.68%, to 17,055.87, the Nasdaq dropped 19.00, or 0.42%, to 4,508.69, and the S&P 500 fell 11.52, or 0.58%, to 1,982.77.

12:11 EDTCOVOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed and little changed at midday, amid new rules from the Obama administration on tax inversions and manufacturing data from around the globe. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA's home price index rose 0.1% in July to 212.7, missing expectations for a rise of 0.5%. Markit's preliminary manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for September came in at 57.9, slightly below the consensus forecast for a 58.0 reading. The Richmond Fed manufacturing index for September rose to 14, beating expectations for it to have dropped two points to 10. In China, HSBC's flash manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 50.5 from a final reading of 50.2 in August, better than expectations. In Europe, Markit's composite flash PMI for the eurozone dipped to a nine-month low of 52.3, missing expectations for it to hold steady at the 52.5 seen in August. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of several companies, including a number in the pharmaceutical industry, are lower in early trading after the Treasury Department announced new regulations yesterday night that aim to make it tougher for U.S. companies to lower their tax burdens via mergers with foreign companies, otherwise known as "inversions." Among the stocks that moved lower after the new rules were announced was Astrazeneca (AZN), which had previously been a target of Pfizer (PFE) and fell about 4% near midday. Also lower were shares of both Shire (SHPG), which fell 2%, and Abbvie (ABBV), which dropped 1.6%, as the two have previously agreed to merge in a tax inversion deal. Medtronic (MDT) and Covidien (COV), which similarly agreed to an inversion merger, were down 3.3% and 2.7%, respectively. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Salix Pharmaceuticals (SLXP), which rose more than 5% after The Wall Street Journal reported that Allergan (AGN) is in advanced talks on a deal to buy the company. Shares of Allergan were also up nearly 3% near midday, as the Journal also reported that Allergan rejected a recent buyout offer from Actavis (ACT). Among the noteworthy losers was Ascena Retail (ASNA), which dropped 16% after the apparel retailer's fourth quarter results and fiscal 2015 profit outlook trailed analysts' consensus estimates. Also lower following its own earnings report was auto retailer CarMax (KMX), which fell over 9%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 32.91, or 0.19%, to 17,139.77, the Nasdaq was up 2.90, or 0.06%, to 4,530.59, and the S&P 500 was down 2.29, or 0.11%, to 1,992.00.

08:53 EDTCOVInversion regulations look more onerous than expected, says FBR Capital

11:25 EDTCOVSenators bring bill requiring companies to settle before inverting
U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown and Dick Durbin announced new legislation requiring corporations to "Pay What You Owe Before You Go" – settling their U.S. tax bill before relocating to a foreign country. "Everyone knows that before you leave a restaurant you have to settle your tab," Brown said. "Corporations shouldn’t get to play by different rules. While it is critical that we reach a long-term solution that reforms our international corporate tax code by implementing a global minimum tax and reducing the statutory tax rate, this bill is an immediate, commonsense measure to ensure businesses settle up before leaving the U.S." Among the deals or possible transactions that involve inversion are Mylan's (MYL) acquisition of Abbott (ABT), Medtronic's (MDT) acquisition of Covidien (COV) and Valeant's (VRX) proposed takeover of Allergan (AGN).
