05:18 EDTCYCypress Semiconductor presents 'best and final offer' to Integrated Silicon
Cypress Semiconductor (CY) announced that it sent the following letter to the board of Integrated Silicon Solution (ISSI): "On behalf of Cypress Semiconductor, I hereby submit our best and final offer for Integrated Silicon Solution and attach a revised draft Agreement and Plan of Merger between ISSI and Cypress. Cypress is increasing its offer to acquire ISSI to a price of $22.60 per share, while maintaining its previously outlined ticking fee of 10c per share per quarter beginning October 1. Our strategic and financial analysis indicates this is the maximum price justified for ISSI in order for the deal to create long-term value for our shareholders. Again, we are prepared to put the Revised Definitive Merger Agreement reflecting our Revised Offer, signed by me to demonstrate our sincerity and strong commitment to closing this transaction, into escrow through our lawyers today. We strongly believe that our Revised Offer clearly represents a superior, risk-adjusted proposal to the transaction contemplated by the current Agreement and Plan of Merger with Uphill Investment... As we have noted previously, had we been included in your sale process, your shareholders would have reaped two significant benefits: a more time-efficient price-discovery process and the capture of a potential incremental 56c per share per quarter, which was instead misspent on an unnecessary breakup fee."

11:11 EDTSHLD, GMEAnalyst says Best Buy shares poised to rise
Best Buy's (BBY) stock is poised to advance after the company reports its second quarter results, research firm B. Riley predicted. WHAT'S NEW: Best Buy's forecast for increased margins in the second half of the year, along with easing comparisons, should cause the stock to rise, predicted B. Riley in a note to investors earlier today. The shares will be particularly well-positioned to climb after the company updates its guidance following its Q2 results, the firm believes. Best Buy's initiatives should help increase its revenue and profits heading into fiscal 2017 and the retailer can continues to increase its market share at the expense of Sears (SHLD), RadioShack and others. Additionally, macro economic trends remain favorable for Best Buy and its key product categories continue to perform well, according to B. Riley. The firm, which is particularly confident about the company's ability to beat Q4 consensus estimates, keeps a $47 price target on the name and reiterates a Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In their own note to investors this morning, SunTrust analysts David Magee and D. Mitch Van Zelfden speculated on potential M&A activity in the specialty retail space, noting that "Wall Streetís appetite for acquisitions has strengthened recently." In their opinion, Best Buy acquiring GameStop (GME) is among the "most compelling relationships" in the sector, the note explained. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Best Buy slid 0.4% to $34.72, while GameStop rose 1.3% to $44.92.

08:04 EDTCYCypress Semiconductor sends updated proposal to Integrated Silicon
Cypress Semiconductor (CY) sent an updated proposal to Integrated Silicon (ISSI). In the letter to the Executive Chairman of the Board of Integrated Silicon, Cypress said, "I trust that the ISSI Board of Directors now understands that Cypress Semiconductor places strategic, not just financial, value on the acquisition of ISSI. Of course, you have known of this strong and unwavering interest, given your personal dialogues with us over the last year. As we said in those meetings, we believe that the transaction would benefit not only ISSI shareholders, but also ISSI customers due to the increased breadth and strategic capabilities of the product offerings of the combined companies; for example, to provide and warranty all the memory types needed to implement an automotive embedded system. With that vision unchanged, Cypress is increasing its offer to acquire ISSI to $22.25 per share, while maintaining its previously outlined ticking fee of $0.10 per share per quarter beginning October 1, 2015. Additionally, Cypress will put into escrow through our lawyers today a merger agreement pre-negotiated with ISSI and signed by me to further demonstrate our sincerity and strong commitment to closing this transaction. This Cypress proposal is clearly superior to an Uphill proposal at the same price per share, given our inclusion of a ticking fee and our mitigation of regulatory risk."
06:18 EDTBASuppliers worried about Airbus, Boeing production rate hike, Reuters reports
Major engine suppliers, including General Electric (GE) and Safran, are becoming worried that they may lose out if they invest to meet higher commercial jet production targets from Airbus (EADSY) and Boeing (BA) that may prove unsustainable, Reuters reports. Airbus and Boeing have plans to raise production rates of their best selling single aisle planes by 25% to 50-52 a month in 2017-2018, the report says. Suppliers have said that they need to secure the start of a steep rise in output before making a commitment to even loftier targets, the report says. Reference Link
