Chesapeake (CHK) announced that it has executed a Purchase and Sale Agreement to sell assets in the Southern Marcellus Shale and a portion of the Eastern Utica Shale in West Virginia to Southwestern Energy Company (SWN) for aggregate proceeds of $5.375B. The transaction, which is subject to certain customary closing conditions, including the receipt of third-party consents, is expected to close in Q4. Chesapeake has agreed to sell approximately 413K net acres and approximately 1,500 wells in Northern West Virginia and Southern Pennsylvania, of which 435 are in the Marcellus and Utica formations, along with related property, plant and equipment. Average net daily production from these properties was approximately 56K barrels of oil equivalent during the month of September, consisting of 184K Mcf of gas, 20K barrels of natural gas liquids and 5,000 barrels of condensate. The company said, "We expect our full-year production guidance for 2015 to remain in the range of 7-10% growth from 2014 levels adjusted for asset sales. I am very proud of the efforts that our Southern Marcellus team and all of our employees have put into building and developing our assets and creating value for our company. We look forward to deploying the proceeds from this significant transaction in ways that will continue to drive even greater shareholder value.

13:08 EDTMTWOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and saw several swings throughout the morning. Near midday the averages were mixed, with the Dow a bit higher and the Nasdaq weighed down by weakness across the semiconductor sector. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the import price index fell 0.5% in September, versus expectations for a 0.7% decline. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of a number of semiconductor makers, including industry giant Intel (INTC), were sharply lower after one of the companies in the space, Microchip Technology (MCHP), warned that it believes the sector has entered a correction. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it does business with over 80,000 customers and that it built a significant amount of inventory in the distribution channel in the September quarter. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future. Near noon, Microchip dropped 11%, Intel fell almost 4%, Texas Instruments (TXN) slipped over 6%, Micron (MU) dropped 6% and Fairchild (FCS) declined 12%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exact Sciences (EXAS), which rallied 35% after the company announced last night that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, had agreed to cover the company's colorectal cancer and pre-cancer test through Medicare. Among the noteworthy losers were a number of companies that, similarly to Microchip, warned that their quarterly results will likely miss expectations, including Procera Networks (PKT), which plunged 34%, Manitowoc (MTW), which fell 9%, and Sizmek (SZMK), which dropped 21%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 38.02, or 0.23%, to 16,697.27, the Nasdaq was down 35.89, or 0.82%, to 4,342.45, and the S&P 500 was up 0.42, or 0.02%, to 1,928.63.
