16:26 EDTARCPOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session sharply higher and remained that way for the entire session. The strength was attributed to investor enthusiasm over statements from the Fed about being patient in their approach to raising interest rates. Over the past couple of weeks the price of oil has often dictated the direction of equities, but that was not the case today as a drop in WTI and Brent crude was not followed by a dip in the equity averages. With year-end approaching, money managers may be chasing performance, but they also may be adjusting portfolio’s ahead of tomorrow’s quadruple witching, when market index futures, market index options, stock options, and stock futures all expire. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 6K to 289K in the week ended December 13, versus expectations for 295K first-time claims. Markit's flash December Services PMI reading came in at 53.6, which was below the consensus 56.3 forecast. The Philadelphia Fed survey of business conditions index drop to 24.5 in December from November's unexpectedly high 40.8 reading, though the steep pullback was in-line with the consensus forecast. The November index of leading economic indicators rose 0.6%, as expected. In Europe, U.K. retail sales including auto fuel increased 1.6% in November, widely topping economists' forecast for a 0.4% gain. Germany's Ifo business climate index advanced to 105.5 in December from 104.7 in the prior month, narrowly topping expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Oracle (ORCL) rallied $4.19, or 10.18%, to $45.35 after the company’s second quarter results surpassed consensus estimates. Analyst commentary was mixed, with research firms Canaccord and FBR Capital raising their price targets on the stock to $50 and $48, respectively, while JPMorgan said it expects consensus estimates for Oracle to be reduced and Oppenheimer said that it thinks the transition to the cloud is increasing pressure on the company's financial model and restraining EPS growth. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was OvaScience (OVAS), which rose $8.26, or 23.63%, to $43.22 after the company said it has achieved its 2014 corporate goals to advance its three fertility treatment options and its stock was upgraded to Outperform at Wedbush. Also higher was Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals (TTPH), which gained $4.81, or 14.49%, to $38.00 after a study of the company's eravacycline antibiotic met its primary endpoint and more than one research firm said the trial results make the company a more likely takeover target. Among the noteworthy losers was Silicon Image (SIMG), which dropped $1.84, or 27.3%, to $4.90 after the company warned it expects a year-over-year revenue decline in 2015 of about 10% due to a reduction in mobile design wins at one of its largest customers. Also lower were shares of RCS Capital (RCAP), which fell $1.81, or 15.39%, to $9.95 after its Executive Chairman of the Board, Nicholas Schorsch, was reportedly accused of directing two executives at American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP), where he was formerly the Chairman, to manipulate quarterly financial results. INDEXES: The Dow gained 421.28, or 2.43%, to 17,778.15, the Nasdaq advanced 104.08, or 2.24%, to 4,748.40, and the S&P 500 rose 48.34, or 2.4%, to 2,061.23.

08:41 EDTARCPAmerican Realty announces CEO Kay, COO Beeson step down
American Realty Capital Properties announced changes to its management and corporate governance. As previously announced, Nick Schorsch has stepped down as Executive Chairman of ARCP and from the ARCP Board of Directors and the Boards of Directors of the non-traded REITs managed by Cole Capital. In addition, David Kay has stepped down as CEO of ARCP and from the ARCP Board of Directors. Lisa Beeson has also stepped down as President and COO. William Stanley has been appointed Lead Independent director and Chairman of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. Effective immediately, Stanley will serve as Interim CEO and Interim Chairman of the Board until permanent replacements are named. The Compensation Committee of the ARCP Board of Directors already has commenced the process of identifying a new CEO and a new Chairman of the Board. The Committee is engaging an independent search firm to assist with this process and will identify and name new leadership as expeditiously as possible. In connection with Mr. Schorsch's departure as Executive Chairman, ARCP will be unwinding all of its relationships with entities in which Schorsch maintains an executive or director-level role or is a significant stockholder. These steps will not only enhance the Company's corporate governance structure but will also lead to further simplification of its business relationships. As part of this undertaking, Mr. Stanley has resigned, or is in the process of resigning, his positions with all other entities related with Mr. Schorsch, including Business Development Corporation of America, Business Development Corporation of America II, American Realty Capital, Retail Centers of America, Inc., and New York REIT Inc. As previously disclosed, the independent members of the ARCP Board of Directors have retained Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC to provide advice around capital structure, business strategy and capital allocation.

06:05 EDTGTEGran Tierra announces $310M capital spending program for 2015
Gran Tierra announced its 2015 Budget with a capital spending program of $310M for its exploration and production development operations in Colombia, Peru and Brazil. The capital spending program allocates $183M for drilling, $69M for facilities, equipment and pipelines, $56M for geological and geophysical activities and $2M associated with corporate activities. The capital spending program currently contemplates the drilling of 11 gross wells in Colombia and two gross wells in Peru. Approximately 70% of the drilling program is for development and appraisal drilling and approximately 30% is for exploration drilling. Gran Tierra Energy is expecting 2015 production to average 26K BOE/D-27KBOEP/D gross working interest or 21KBOE/D-22KBOE/D net after royalty assuming an average Brent oil price of $60 per barrel. Country Drilling Facilities & Pipelines Geological & Geophysical Total Colombia $94 $36 $26 $156 Peru $77 $24 $17 $118 Brazil $12 $9 $13 $34 Total $183 $69 $56 $310* *Total includes $2MM associated with corporate work (US$ MM Net) Gran Tierra Energy is expecting 2015 production to average between 26,000 and 27,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("BOEPD") gross working interest ("WI") or between 21,000 and 22,000 BOEPD net after royalty ("NAR") assuming an average Brent oil price of $60 per barrel used for 2015 Budget purposes. After royalty production numbers will increase with falling oil prices and conversely decrease with rising oil prices as a result of the royalty formula calculations related to our license contracts in Colombia. Production from Colombia is expected to deliver approximately 19,000 BOEPD NAR, with Costayaco contributing approximately 10,400 BOEPD NAR and Moqueta contributing approximately 6,100 BOEPD NAR assuming a 2% contingency for potential delivery disruptions. The 2015 Budget also includes first production from Peru of approximately 1,600 BOEPD NAR, and approximately 900 BOEPD NAR from Brazil. Production expectations do not include potential production from successful exploration wells. Approximately 99% of this expected production consists of oil, with the balance consisting of natural gas. Gran Tierra Energy had $360 million in cash and cash equivalents and no debt at the end of the third quarter 2014. Based on current oil prices, Gran Tierra Energy expects the 2015 work program and budget to be funded from cash flows from operations, cash on hand and periodic draws on our credit facility if needed.
