17:08 EDTBACOverstock.com market-riggin case to proceed
Overstock.com (OSTK) announces that due to the California Supreme Court's decision last week not to review a lower appellate court ruling, relevant discovery materials gained in its long-fought battle with Goldman Sachs (GS) and Merrill Lynch (BAC) will be released to the public, and it will be proceeding to trial against Merrill Lynch. In a suit filed in 2007, Overstock.com alleged certain brokerages engaged in illegal market manipulation in a deliberate effort to manipulate Overstock.com's share prices. Over many years and millions of dollars of discovery generating millions of documents, it fashioned its case against some of the premier brokerages on Wall Street. As was previously disclosed in a filing with the SEC in December 2010, Overstock.com entered into a settlement with certain other defendants in the aggregate amount of $4.44M, the terms of which are confidential. In January 2012, a California trial court decided that relevant portions of the voluminous discovery records regarding Goldman and Merrill should be made public, but dismissed the case on narrow, technical grounds. Last week's decision by the California Supreme Court not to review the appellate court ruling means that the process for public release of information gathered through the discovery process may now proceed, and also the trial against Merrill Lynch. Overstock SVP and General Counsel Mark Griffin added, "It is unfortunate the Court has decided that, despite the substantial evidence against Goldman Sachs, due to jurisdictional grounds they cannot be made to account for it in a California courtroom. Overstock looks forward to making that evidence available to the public for review, and we can't wait to get Merrill Lynch in front of a jury, and let them decide what to do about these manipulative stock market abuses."

08:11 EDTCCapital One slips after Costco enters co-brand card pact with Visa, Citi
Shares of Capital One (COF) are slipping in pre-market trading after Costco Wholesale (COST) announced it has entered into a new co-brand credit card program agreement with Citi (C) and an acceptance and co-brand incentive agreement with Visa (V). The Fly notes that on February 12 American Express (AXP) announced that its U.S. co-brand and merchant acceptance agreements with Costco are set to end on March 31, 2016. On October 1 of last year, MasterCard Canada (MA) entered into an agreement with Costco Canada to open credit card acceptance to MasterCard cardholders. In addition, Capital One rolled out a new cobranded MasterCard credit card with Costco Canada at that time, which may have led some to speculate that Capital One and MasterCard could have the inside track for a U.S. deal with Costco. In pre-market trading, Capital One shares slid 0.56% to $78.27 and MasterCard shares slipped fractionally lower to $90.
08:06 EDTCCostco enters long-term co-brand credit card agreement with Citi, Visa
Costco Wholesale (COST) announced it has entered into a new co-brand credit card program agreement with Citi (C) and an acceptance and co-brand incentive agreement with Visa (V). The implementation of these agreements is subject to the purchase of the existing co-brand credit card portfolio by Citi. Under the terms of the agreements, Citi, the world's largest issuer of consumer credit cards, would become the exclusive issuer of Costco's co-brand credit cards and Visa will replace American Express as the credit card network for Costco in the United States and Puerto Rico beginning April 1, 2016. Once issued, Costco's co-brand Visa credit card would provide generous rewards to Costco members, serve as the Costco membership card, and would be accepted at Costco locations in the United States and Puerto Rico, as well as all merchants worldwide that accept Visa credit cards. Costco will provide its members with additional information in the coming months regarding the anticipated transition from its existing co-brand credit card program.
