16:24 EDTPGOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks began the day slightly lower but began to move higher shortly after the open. The market began to drift higher before the noon hour as European markets closed in positive territory. Investors are now looking toward and positioning ahead of the week's big event, namely tomorrow's scheduled policy announcement from the Federal Reserve and the associated press conference by Chairwoman Janet Yellen. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts were down 11.1% to a 1.036M rate in May, versus expectations for a decline of 4%. Building permits were up 11.8% to a 1.275M rate, versus expectations for a decline of 3.5% in May. In Europe, the ZEW index of economic sentiment in Germany plunged to 31.5 this month from a reading of 41.9 in May. COMPANY NEWS: Gap (GPS) held its annual investor meeting today, but made its big news last night prior to the meeting by announcing that it will close about 175 of its namesake brand's stores in North America over the next few years. Gap estimated an annualized sales loss of approximately $300M associated with the closures and sees one-time costs primarily associated with these actions to be in the range of approximately $140M-$160M, the company noted. Gap shares advanced 55c, or 1.44%, to $38.75 following the announcement and meeting... Kirk Kerkorian, the founder of MGM Resorts (MGM) and one of the company's largest shareholders, died Monday night, the company confirmed. Kerkorian owned Tracinda Corporation, a private investment firm that disclosed a 16.19% stake in MGM Resorts and stated that its position in the common stock became subject to the terms of Kerkorian's will upon his death. The will instructs the executor of Kerkorianís estate, Anthony Mandekic, to execute an orderly disposition of Tracindaís position in the common stock, the firm stated. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Coty (COTY), which advanced $5.04, or 19.35%, to $31.09 after The New York Post and Reuters reported that the company had won an auction to buy three Procter & Gamble (PG) beauty businesses valued at $12B. Shares of P&G, meanwhile, added 98c, or 1.25%, to $79.10 following the reports. Also higher were shares of NCR Corp. (NCR), which rose $3.36, or 10.71%, to $34.73 after Reuters reported that private equity firms Blackstone (BX) and Carlyle Group (CG) are planning to jointly bid for the company in a deal that could be worth over $10B, including debt. Among the noteworthy losers was Avalanche Biotechnologies (AAVL), which dropped $21.83, or 56.15%, to $17.05 after the company reported the results of a study of its AVA-101 drug for wet age-related macular degeneration, or wet AMD. Also lower were shares of Oshkosh (OSK), which fell $3.59, or 7.14%, to $46.71 after cutting its FY15 adjusted EPS view to $3.75-$4.00 from $4.00-$4.25, noting that sales and earnings for its third quarter, principally in its access equipment segment, have been hurt by several factors including severe weather conditions, potential rental industry consolidation and, to a lesser extent, new product launch delays. INDEXES: The Dow rose 113.31, or 0.64%, to 17,904.48, the Nasdaq added 25.58, or 0.51%, to 5,055.55, and the S&P 500 gained 11.86, or 0.57%, to 2,096.29.

08:19 EDTPGCoty $12B deal for P&G brands could take two weeks to finalize, Reuters says
Coty (COTY), which won an auction to purchase beauty and hair care businesses valued at close to $12B from Procter & Gamble (PG), could need at least two weeks to finalize the transaction details, reported Reuters, citing sources close to the matter. The deal will be completed through a "Reverse Morris Trust" for tax purposes, meaning P&G will spin off its beauty assets into a separate company that will then absorb Coty in an all-share deal, then the newly combined company will redistribute shares to P&G shareholders, the report added. Coty shares are up 16% in pre-market trading to $30.25 following a related report from the New York Post last night. Reference Link

06:31 EDTFBBelgian Privacy Commission adopts first recommendation of principle on Facebook
The Belgian Privacy Commission said in a statement that on May 13 it adopted a first recommendation of principle on Facebook. "It has observed that Facebook 'processes' the personal data of its members, users as well as of all internet users who come into contact with Facebook. Facebook does this secretively: no consent is asked for this 'tracking and tracing' and the use of cookies. No targeted information is provided. The available information is vague and authorizes just about anything. Following the introduction of new worldwide terms of use by Facebook, a number of European privacy commissions queried Facebook, which was particularly sparing with precise answers and also refused to comply with the request to postpone the entry into force of the new terms of use. Facebook did not accept that it was bound by the national privacy legislation of Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. It rejected the competence of those countries' supervisory authorities for privacy. Facebook only accepts supervision by the Irish privacy commission and the application of Irish law.After months of unsuccessful correspondence and fruitlessly exchanging ideas, the Belgian Privacy Commission has now adopted a first recommendation. This document establishes first of all that the Belgian Privacy Commission is competent and that Belgian law also applies to Facebook, simply because any national supervisory authority is obliged to ensure privacy protection for its citizens. And Belgian law also applies because the Facebook Group has an actual establishment in Brussels, Belgium. At the request of the Belgian Privacy Commission the inter-university research center EMSOC/SPION conducted a detailed study into the way in which Facebook deals with its members' personal data. And that of citizens who do not use Facebook or who explicitly opted out of its service.The research results are disconcerting. Facebook disregards European and Belgian privacy legislation in several ways. In 10 chapters an equal amount of issues have been uncovered. It is the Belgian Privacy Commission's ambition to thoroughly look into these issues. Until today, the eighth chapter - 'tracking trough social plug-ins' - has been the focus of attention, because it does not only impact Facebook users but also virtually every Internet user in Belgium and Europe. Up to this day Facebook refuses to recognize the application of Belgian legislation nor the Belgian Privacy Commission. Until now it has always contested the findings of the EMSOC/SPION research report, but it has not provided concrete facts repudiating them. To the contrary: Facebook recognizes that errors, 'BUGS' have been uncovered." Reference Link
