16:20 EDTCFNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and appeared ready to ride the wave of optimism from Friday’s jobs report into the new week. However, with little on the economic calendar to sustain the momentum, each of the major equity indexes had given up their gains by noon. The Dow and S&P 500 made it back to flat late in the session, but weakened into the close to end the day slightly lower. The tech-heavy Nasdaq was the laggard throughout and ended the day with the most significant decline. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was reported. COMPANY NEWS: Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) climbed $1.67, or 4.74%, to $36.87 after it confirmed plans to split itself into two publicly traded companies by the end of its fiscal 2015. One company will include HP's technology infrastructure, software and services businesses, to be known as "Hewlett-Packard Enterprise," while the other will include the company's PC and printing businesses and be called "HP Inc." After the announcement, HP shares were upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse, while analysts at Cantor called the split "a bold and smart move" that will give HP the financial flexibility needed to sell off one or both of the PC and printing businesses if an attractive offer emerges for either or both. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Durata Therapeutics (DRTX), which surged $10.36, or 74.64%, to $24.24 after the company agreed to be acquired by larger drugmaker Actavis (ACT) for $23.00 per share in cash, or approximately $675M, and contingent value rights for additional cash payments of up to $5.00 per share if certain regulatory or commercial milestones related to Durata's lead product are achieved. Also higher was CareFusion (CFN), which jumped $10.58, or 22.92%, to $56.75 after agreeing to be acquired by Becton Dickinson (BDX) for $49 in cash and 0.0777 of a share of BD for each share of CareFusion, or about $12.2B. Becton Dickinson rose $9.14, or 7.89%, to $124.98 after its deal, while Actavis slipped $2.12, or 0.86%, to $243.95, after its own, much smaller purchase. GT Advanced Technologies (GTAT) plunged $10.22, or 92.46%, to 83c after the company announced that it and some of its units had commenced voluntary cases under chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code, which Raymond James believes implies a "fundamental, severe breakdown" of the company's relationship with Apple (AAPL). Also lower were shares of Sunesis (SNSS), which dropped $5.18, or 78.01%, to $1.46 and was downgraded at RBC Capital and Wells Fargo after a trial of a combination therapy for patients with first relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia did not meet its primary endpoint. INDEXES: The Dow slid 17.78, or 0.1%, to 16,991.91, the Nasdaq fell 20.82, or 0.47%, to 4,454.80, and the S&P 500 slipped 3.08, or 0.16%, to 1,964.82.
