17:04 EDTDISOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher for the day, beginning the session sharply higher and remaining in positive territory throughout. China’s central bank announced a reduction in bank reserve requirements in an effort to increase liquidity and spur economic growth within the country. Following the open, the market moved in a relatively narrow range as investors await the latest round of earnings reports for one of the season's heavier weeks. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed National Activity Index came in at 0.42 versus expectations for positive 0.1. In Asia, the People's Bank of China lowered its reserve requirement ratio, by 1 percentage point, the lowest since the financial crisis. Despite this, the Shanghai Composite Index fell 1.6% because regulators had already begun curbing speculative trading on Friday. COMPANY NEWS: Morgan Stanley (MS) advanced 0.57%, or 21c, to $36.96 after reporting earnings prior to the market open. The bank beat on both EPS and revenue, and also raised its dividend to 15c from 10c. CEO James Gorman was pleased with the quarter and cited growth across the majority of the company's operations. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Hasbro (HAS), which rose 12.55% to end the session at $74.16 after reporting EPS and revenue in excess of analyst expectations. During its earnings conference call, the company appeared confident on its 2015 offerings which include Disney (DIS) Princess and Frozen product lines. Also higher was Rovi (ROVI), gaining 8.64% to close the day at $19.11 after renewing its licensing and program guide agreement with Charter (CHTR). Among the noteworthy losers was Caesars Entertainment (CZR), tumbling 17.01% to $10 after failing to reach an agreement on its restructuring. Also lower were a number of medical companies involved in the development of CAR-T cancer therapies, including Kite Pharma (KITE), Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), blue bird bio (BLUE), and ZIOPHARM Oncology (ZIOP). The drop followed disappointing, small-scale studies presented during the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. INDEXES: The Dow rose 208.63, or 1.17%, to 18,034.93, the Nasdaq advanced 62.79, or 1.27%, to 4,994.6, and the S&P 500 gained 19.22, or 0.92%, to 2,100.4.

12:08 EDTNFLXTiming of Rovi renewal with Charter a plus, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan said the timing of the closing of Rovi's (ROVI) renewal of its IP and programming guide agreement with Charter (CHTR) is advantageous given Rovi's other impending renewals and should give some confidence that large service provider renewals don't hinge on the outcome of the company's court case with Netflix (NFLX). However, the firm added that it would not be surprised to see more volatility in Rovi shares if court rulings favor Netflix and it kept a Neutral rating on the stock.
