07:33 EDTCCECoca-Cola Enterprises reports Q4 comparable EPS 53c, consensus 51c
Reports Q4 revenue $1.63B, consensus $1.63B. Currency translation had a negative impact of approximately 7c on fourth-quarter comparable diluted EPS. In 2015, we managed each element of our business to deliver slightly positive operating income growth, earnings per share growth of 8.5 percent, and solid free cash flow, all in line with our guidance from a year ago," said John F. Brock, chairman and CEO. "However, we continued to encounter a softer than expected consumer sector, impacting our business and top-line growth. While we expect soft consumer and category trends to persist in 2016, we continue to see long-term growth opportunities. Importantly, we believe the creation of Coca-Cola European Partners will enable us to leverage the best practices of three leading bottlers as we work even more closely with The Coca-Cola Company to better align our businesses, adapt to current conditions, and improve our growth outlook."

16:21 EDTCUDAOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
Stocks began the session deep in negative territory, beginning February the way they spent most of January, weighed down by the price of oil, which fell about 6% for the session. Also hitting the market early were weak economic reports, both in China and the U.S. The averages moved higher late in the day as investors awaited the next barrage of earnings reports, which will include results from Google parent Alphabet (GOOG). ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., personal income rose 0.3% in December, versus expectations for an increase of 0.2%, while spending was flat, versus expectations for an increase of 0.1%. Markit's manufacturing purchasing managers index for January dipped to 52.4 in the final January reading, down from the 52.7 flash reading and below the 52.6 reading that was expected. The Institute for Supply Management's manufacturing index for January came in at 48.2, below the 48.4 that analysts expected. Construction spending rose 0.1% in December, which was weaker than the 0.6% increase that was forecast. Separately, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer spoke about recent monetary policy decisions undertaken by the Fed, reiterating expectations that "economic conditions will evolve in a manner that will warrant only gradual increases in the federal funds rate," while also revealing that four rate hikes is among the numbers being discussed by the Federal Reserve for this year. In China, the government's official manufacturing purchasing managers index fell to 49.4 in January from 49.7 in December. The private Caixin manufacturing PMI edged up to 48.4 from 48.2 in the prior reading, but both figures still remain in contraction territory. In Europe, Markit's manufacturing PMI for the euro zone dropped to 52.3 from December's 53.2, in-line with the earlier flash estimate. COMPANY NEWS: After swinging as high as $18.77, shares of Twitter (TWTR) ended the day up 6.55% at $17.90 after tech reporter Jessica Lessin said private equity firm Silver Lake and investor Marc Andreessen have "considered some sort of deal" for the microblog service operator, though Lessin noted she didn't know if deal talks are currently active. Later in the day, a source familiar with the matter told Fortune that Silver Lake has no interest in acquiring "even a slice" of Twitter...

MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Sysco (SYY) and Aetna (AET), which advanced 8.4% and 1.4%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. Also higher was Barracuda Networks (CUDA), which jumped about 11% to $11.75 after Bloomberg reported the company is exploring a sale.

Also lower was DreamWorks (DWA), which fell 6.8% to $23.90 after the studio's new film "Kung Fu Panda 3" missed expectations for its domestic box office opening. Meanwhile, Roper Technologies (ROP) and Cardinal Health (CAH) lost a respective 6.8% and 1.9% after reporting quarterly earnings.

16:09 EDTCAGConAgra sees $1.6B tax asset from sale of private label operations to TreeHouse
ConAgra Foods announced the completion of the sale of its private label operations to TreeHouse Foods for proceeds of $2.7B in cash, excluding transaction-related expenses and subject to post-closing adjustments. A total of approximately 9,500 employees transitioned to TreeHouse Foods, including plant employees and those supporting the private label business located at the St. Louis, Mo., Downers Grove, Ill., and Omaha, Neb., office locations. Certain private label operations with a strong connection to ConAgra Foods' existing Consumer Foods business were not part of the sale, specifically canned pasta, cooking spray, peanut butter, pudding/gels, Gelit frozen pasta product offerings, as well as the HK Anderson and Kangaroo brand equities, trademarks and business portfolios. Results for these operations, which were not material, were moved to the Consumer Foods reporting segment in Q1. ConAgra Foods generated approximately $2.7B in cash proceeds from the sale, less transaction expenses, and intends to utilize the net proceeds primarily for debt reduction. The company expects the transaction to result in a tax asset of approximately $1.6B, which can be used to offset potential future capital gains over the next five years.
