06:52 EDTSPWRJapanese judge blocks relaunch of nuclear plants, NY Times says
A Japanese judge yesterday blocked the country's government from restarting two nuclear power plants, according to The New York Times. None of Japan's 48 reactors has been operating since the Fukushima disaster, and the judge's decision is potentially significant because it directly challenges the government's new nuclear safety standards, the newspaper stated, adding that the two affected reactors may not reopen for months or even years. Cameco (CCJ) develops uranium used by nuclear plants. Solar energy companies whose products may be used to supplement nuclear power in Japan include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE).

16:53 EDTAVPOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed for the day, beginning the session in positive territory helped by better than expected earnings reports from JPMorgan (JPM), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), and Wells Fargo (WFC). The early economic data was slightly below Wall Street expectations and became a headwind for the market. By the end of the first hour of trading the market had turned negative, and it spent the remainder of the day trading in mixed fashion. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail purchases for March advanced 0.9%, bouncing up from a 0.5% decline in February. However, economists had predicted a 1.1% growth after improvements on last month's weather. The producer price index grew 0.2% for March, in line with consensus estimates. Core PPI grew 0.2% versus expectations of 0.1% growth. The International Monetary Fund's World Economic Outlook Report trimmed U.S. growth forecast to 3.1% from its previous outlook of 3.6%, while global forecast was left unchanged at 3.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Avon (AVP) surged 66c, or 8.24%, to $8.67 following a Wall Street Journal report that the company is exploring strategic alternatives, including potentially selling its North American business, though a Bloomberg report later in the day claimed the company is not conducting a formal sale process... Nokia (NOK) confirmed it is in "advanced discussions" to buy French telecom firm Alcatel-Lucent (ALU), prompting French President Francois Hollande to schedule meetings with leaders from both companies. Later in the day, the French government announced it supports the potential deal, with French Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron stating Nokia reassured officials by detailing "clear undertakings." Nokia fell 34c, or 4.1%, to $7.96 at the close, while Alcatel jumped 58c, or 13.33%, to $4.93. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was 58.com (WUBA), which rallied 33.52%, or $17.04, to $67.87 after the Financial Times reported the company has signed a memorandum of understanding to merge with rival classifieds service Ganji.com. Also higher was PartnerRe (PRE), which advanced 8.49% to $129.25 after EXOR proposed to acquire the company for $130.00 per share in cash, valuing PartnerRe at $6.4B. Following earnings, JPMorgan (JPM) advanced 1.56% to $63.04 after beating expectations, while Wells Fargo (WFC) fell 0.73% and Johnson & Johnson fell 0.03% after reducing its FY15 earnings guidance. Among the noteworthy losers was Arrowhead Research (ARWR), which tumbled 7.75% after Jefferies downgraded the stock to Hold and lowered its price target to $9 from $30. The firm said that while ARC-520 offers the potential for a Hepatitis B virus functional cure, it prefers to wait for multi-dosing data. Also lower was Norfolk Southern (NSC), which dropped 4.18% to $100.49 and was downgraded to Hold at TD Securities following first quarter guidance that fell below expectations. INDEXES: The Dow rose 59.66, or 0.33%, to 18,036.70, the Nasdaq lost 10.96, or 0.22%%, to 4,977.29, and the S&P 500 advanced 3.41, or 0.16%, to 2,095.84.
