12:49 EDTAVPOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
The market opened higher amid lower than expected weekly jobless claims, data showing that producer prices fell rather than rose in April and a continued slide in the dollar against the euro. The Dow notched triple digit gains right out of the gate and the averages have moved in a narrow range in morning trading, albeit at near-record levels. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 1K to 264K in the week ended May 9, versus expectations for 273K first-time claims. The weekly data brought the four week moving average to 271.75K, which marks its lowest level in 15 years. The Producer Price Index fell 0.4% in April, with the core PPI reading sliding 0.2%, which missed expectations for both the headline and core PPI figures to have grown 0.1%. After dropping 1.3% yesterday against the euro, the U.S. dollar slid another 0.4% earlier to about $1.14 per euro, bringing its decline to about 7% versus the euro in the past month. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Avon Products (AVP) were volatile after "PTG Capital Partners" announced via a filing with the SEC that it has submitted an offer to the board of Avon proposing to acquire all of the company's outstanding stock, and outstanding options to acquire such shares, in a recommended cash tender offer at a price per share of $18.75. Shares of Avon spiked initially after the filing, were halted several times due to volatile trading, and came well off their earlier highs as investors questioned the validity of the firm making the purported offer. A source told Dow Jones that the company was treating the purported bid as a hoax and Avon told CNBC that it had no proof PTG exists and that it has not received any offer. Still, Avon remained up about 4% to trade near $6.92 per share in early afternoon trading. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Russia's QIWI (QIWI), which jumped 12% after the company announced that it has entered into an agreement with Otkritie to acquire the Contact money transfer system and the Rapida payment processing system, which are "highly value accretive" acquisitions according to analysts at JPMorgan. Also higher was China's Ctrip.com (CTRP), which gained 10% and was upgraded at Stifel and Oppenheimer following the company's Q1 results. Among the noteworthy losers was Puma Biotechnology (PBYI), which dropped 18% after data on the company's neratinib drug was disclosed via an abstract for the company's upcoming presentation at the American Society of Clinical Oncology, or ASCO, meeting. Also lower following its earnings report was retailer Kohl's (KSS), which slid over 12%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 170.23, or 0.94%, to 18,230.72, the Nasdaq was up 55.96, or 1.12%, to 5,037.65, and the S&P 500 was up 17.10, or 0.81%, to 2,115.58.

11:48 EDTAVPPTG Capital recommends tender offer for Avon at $18.75 per share
PTG Capital Partners announced via a filing with the SEC that it has submitted an offer to the board of Avon Products proposing to acquire all of the company's outstanding stock, and outstanding options to acquire such shares, in a recommended cash tender offer at a price per share of $18.75. The offer is subject to "satisfactory completion of due diligence, the redemption or termination of the rights plan, or 'poison pill', if any, and negotiation and execution of a definitive written agreement." PTG said it has "substantial experience in managing acquisitions and is committed to working quickly to complete due diligence and execute a definitive agreement." PTG Partners expects to be able to complete such an agreement within 10 days from the beginning of the due diligence period. PTG cautioned that the offer "does not create any binding obligation, and no such binding obligation will arise unless and until a mutually satisfactory definitive agreement has been executed and delivered by the parties." It added that it believes a combination of the company and PTG would result in "substantial benefits" to shareholder bases. After being halted for volatility, Avon shares are up $1.31 to $7.98. The stock halted again after the quick rise.

16:50 EDTKOCoca-Cola Bottling signs LOI for major expansion of franchise territories
Coca-Cola Bottling (COKE) announced that it has signed a non-binding letter of intent with The Coca-Cola Company (KO) to further expand the company's franchise territory. The transactions proposed in the letter of intent would provide exclusive distribution rights for the company in territories located within Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. This additional territory would include the following major markets: Baltimore, MD; Alexandria, Norfolk and Richmond, VA; Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton, OH; Indianapolis, IN and Washington, D.C. Coca-Cola Refreshments USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Coca-Cola Company, currently serves these territories. The Company recently completed an expansion of its franchise distribution territory by acquiring sub-bottling distribution rights from CCR in parts of Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana and continues to integrate these new territories which include major markets in Knoxville, TN, Louisville and Lexington, KY and Evansville, IN. The transactions proposed in the letter of intent are subject to the parties reaching a definitive agreement, with territory expansion closings expected to begin in the fall of 2015. There is no assurance, however, that any definitive agreement will be reached or that the closings of the proposed territory expansion transactions will occur.
