16:17 EDTUALOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Friday
Stocks slipped at the open as the futures once again were influenced by the volatile overnight trading session in China. The averages began to recover shortly after the open and turned mixed by midday. Comments from Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fisher about the central bank being open to a possible rate hike in September took some momentum out of the market. As the volume slowed and the news flow went silent, the volatility increased and the averages headed lower only to rebound before the close, but the trading was still remarkably calm when compared to the wide swings seen in the market in the earlier sessions of this week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., personal income rose 0.4% in July, as expected, with consumer spending up 0.3%, which was below the 0.4% consensus growth forecast. The University of Michigan consumer sentiment reading for August was revised down to 91.9 from the 92.9 preliminary reading, versus expectations for it to be bumped up to 93.0. Baker Hughes reported the U.S. rig count is down 8 rigs from last week to 877. WTI crude oil prices added another 6% today to yesterday's 10% rally, closing at $45.22 a barrel on Friday. U.S. crude closed with a weekly gain of 11.8%, marking its first advance in 10 weeks and best week in six years. The Federal Reserve may still raise its benchmark interest rate in September, Fed vice chairman Stanley Fischer said in an interview with CNBC, noting that Fed committee members "haven't made a decision yet" and have "time to wait and see," because the next policy-making meeting won't happen until the middle of next month. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of cancer drug maker ARIAD (ARIA) surged $2.91, or 41.69%, to $9.89 after Bloomberg reported that industry peer Baxalta (BXLT) is in takeover talks with the smaller company to boost its oncology pipeline. Baxalta, which had recently turned down a merger offer from Shire (SHPG), fell $1.18, or 3.24%, to $35.25 following the report... In other pharmaceutical industry M&A news, Mylan (MYL) shareholders voted to approve the company's proposed acquisition of Perrigo (PRGO) and the related issuance of Mylan ordinary shares. Afterward, Perrigo CEO Joseph Papa said he was confident that most of his company's shareholders believe that Mylan's offer substantially undervalues Perrigo and would dilute its "growth profile and superior valuation"... Video game maker Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and airline owner United Continental (UAL) both advanced sharply, rising 4.62% and 6.93%, respectively, after each had their shares selected to join the S&P 500. Activision will replace Pall Corp. (PLL) in the S&P 500 after the close of trading tonight, while United will replace Hospira (HSP) in the index after the close of trading on Wednesday, September 2. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Big Lots (BIG), which advanced $6.58, or 15.67%, to $48.58 after the discount retailer reported better than expected quarterly results and lifted its fiscal year guidance. Among the noteworthy losers after their quarterly reports were video game retailer GameStop (GME), which slid $3.71, or 8.03%, to $42.49, and design software and services company Autodesk (ADSK), which fell $2.48, or 4.96%, to $47.52. INDEXES: The Dow fell 11.76, or 0.07%, to 16,643.01, the Nasdaq gained 15.62, or 0.32%, to 4,828.33, and the S&P 500 advanced 1.21, or 0.06%, to 1,988.87.

15:01 EDTUALWyndham slips after FTC given go-ahead for data breach lawsuit
Shares of Wyndham (WYN) have slipped in afternoon trading after an appeals court ruled that the FTC can sue the company over its allegedly poor cybersecurity practices. WHAT'S NEW: According to a Reuters report of court proceedings, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia has ruled that the FTC may proceed with its lawsuit against Wyndham over data breaches in 2008 and 2009, saying the hotel company failed to take reasonable steps to protect customer information. Wyndham's allegedly lackluster data protection policies constitute "unfair and deceptive trade practices," granting the Federal Trade Commission authority to step in, said Judge Thomas Ambro. FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez commented, "It is not only appropriate, but critical, that the FTC has the ability to take action on behalf of consumers when companies fail to take reasonable steps to secure sensitive consumer information," according to the report. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Today's ruling comes in the wake of numerous high-profile "hack attacks," with American Airlines (AAL), Anthem (ANTM), United Airlines (UAL) and Target (TGT) all reporting digital security breaches in recent years. Though no final verdict has been reached in the case between the FTC and Wyndham, Judge Ambro may have established the beginnings of a legal precedent potentially allowing the Commission to sue companies for not going far enough to protect consumer data and Chairwoman Ramirez appeared to share that broader tone. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Wyndham are down about 4% in intraday trading. Cybersecurity firms FireEye (FEYE) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) are down roughly 2% and 2.7% for the afternoon.

According to market sources, DigiTimes reports that TSMC (TSM) has been "actively" seeking 16nm FinFET chip orders. In addition to securing a portion of Apple's (AAPL) A9 chip orders, TSMC has also received orders from AMD (AMD), Broadcom (BRCM), LG, Nvidia (NVDA) and Avago (AVGO), the sources say, noting that TSMC failed to maintain orders for Qualcomm's (QCOM) flagship mobile chips, as it has placed orders for the Snapdragon 820 series with Samsung (SSNLF).
