12:47 EDTBAC, AEM, CSX, ADTN, SBUX, DPS, PEP, ZGNX, SODA, YHOO, AUYOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday as the earnings season picks up steam. Stocks began the session sharply higher, with the market attempting to extend the rally that began on Monday. The move upward comes in spite of the dayís housing data coming in below expectations. This afternoon, investors will be watching the Fedís Beige Book report in hopes it provides evidence that the economy is strengthening. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts in March were up 2.8% from the prior month to a rate of 946K, versus expectations for an increase of 7%. Building permits were down 2.4% to a 990K rate, versus expectations for a decline of 0.4%. Industrial production rose 0.7% in March, which was ahead of the 0.5% forecast. The Fedís Beige Book report, which includes anecdotal reports on business conditions in the various Fed districts, is due out at 2:00 pm ET. In China, data showed its economy grew 7.4% in the first quarter from a year earlier, providing relief after recent signs that growth in the world's second largest economy has been slowing. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Bank of America (BAC) were down over 2% near midday after the company reported a first quarter loss of 5c per share, which was influenced by $6B in legal charges. The $6B in litigation expense, which was related to a previously announced settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and added reserves for other legacy mortgage-related matters, hurt the banks earnings by about 40c per share... Yahoo (YHOO) rose more than 6% after reporting first quarter profit and sales last night that beat expectations. A great deal of attention was also paid to the 66% year-over-year increase in revenue reported by Alibaba, the Chinese group of e-commerce sites in which Yahoo has a 24% stake. This morning, Wells Fargo upgraded its rating on Yahoo to Outperform from Market Perform and raised its price target range for shares to $45-$47 from $38-$40, while Jefferies assumed coverage of Yahoo and also raised its rating on the stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was SodaStream (SODA), which surged 9% after an Israeli website said that the company was in talks to sell a 10% or greater stake to a big name company such as PepsiCo (PEP), Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS), or Starbucks (SBUX). Also higher was drugmaker Zogenix (ZGNX), which gained nearly 10% after confirming that a judge prevented a ban on sales of the company's Zohydro pain medication in Massachusetts. Among the noteworthy losers was Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM), which fell 7.5% after agreeing to jointly acquire Osisko Mining in partnership with Yamana Gold (AUY). Yamana shares were also down 3%. Also lower following their earnings reports were ADTRAN (ADTN), which fell nearly 6%, and CSX (CSX), which dropped about 3%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 124.14, or 0.76%, to 16,386.70, the Nasdaq was up 37.86, or 0.94%, to 4,072.02, and the S&P 500 was up 13.52, or 0.73%, to 1,856.50.

08:33 EDTAUYYamana Gold provides operational update
Yamana Gold provided an update on its C1 Santa Luz and Pilar projects and announced that monthly production reached record levels in August, favourably positioning the company to meet its production expectations for the balance of this year and into the following years. C1 Santa Luz along with Pilar, both located in Brazil, have been on a gradual process of ramp-up and evaluation over the past year in order to determine their continuing viability in light of certain operational challenges and decline in metal prices last year. During this time, the company has been working to improve the rate of recovery from the carbon-in-leach, or CIL, circuit at C1 Santa Luz, which to date has been lower than designed, and, in particular, the Company has been dealing with a significant carbon content in the ore which has had the effect of suppressing gold recovery. After careful and extensive review, and having allowed a sufficient period of time for optimization efforts, the company has concluded that the optimal plan for C1 Santa Luz would be to temporarily suspend ramp-up activities, and put the project on care and maintenance while several identified alternative metallurgical processes are evaluated. The decision to temporarily suspend ramp-up activities at C1 Santa Luz and put it on care and maintenance is consistent with the company's focus on maximizing cash flow rather than production only and protects the significant inventory of mineral resources that that would otherwise likely be lost permanently to tailings with the current recovery levels. In so doing, the potential future viability of the project is preserved as that inventory is profitably mined and recovered utilizing one of the metallurgical processes that will be implemented once the evaluation process is completed. The company is working with employees, labour unions, contractors and various levels of governments to minimize the impact on local communities and remains confident that once the metallurgical recovery evaluation process is completed, C1 Santa Luz will become a sustainable operation providing long term benefits to local communities. The company has undertaken to complete the evaluation of the alternative metallurgical recovery processes before end of 2015.
