16:58 EDTCHK, PFE, SHLD, PLXT, IDTI, PFCB, HLF, PBYOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher following an encouraging report on U.S. manufacturing. Stock futures were quiet during the pre-market trading session as investors digested the latest round of corporate earnings without having to deal with any new economic reports. The futures action led to a relatively quiet open for the broader market. The market received a lift following the ISM manufacturing report, which was better than expected. The data lifted to the market to fresh recovery highs on the Dow while recent highs were also within striking distance for the Nasdaq and S&P. The market met resistance at the new levels and pared its gains in the afternoon hours... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, the ISM manufacturing index rose to 54.8 in April, beating forecasts for a reading of 53.0. Construction spending for March increased by 0.1%, versus expectations of an increase of 0.5%. In China, the official purchasing managers’ index for manufacturing rose to 53.3 in April... COMPANY NEWS: Chesapeake (CHK) said it would appoint a new non-executive chairman in the near future to replace CEO Aubrey McClendon in that role. McClendon, who will remain on as CEO, also agreed to an early termination of the well participation program that has drawn a firestorm of recent backlash from media, investors and regulators. Shares gained $1.16, or 6.29%, to close at $19.60 ahead of the company's earnings report, due out after the bell... Dow component Pfizer (PFE) reported earnings that beat consensus but lowered its full year forecast to account for the divestiture of its Nutrition business... Sears Holdings (SHLD) gained $8.27, or 15.38%, to $62.05 after saying its Q1 domestic same store sales fell 1.3%, which was a significant improvement from the declines seen in the same period last year, and forecasting a return to earnings from continuing operations in the quarter... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were PLX Technology (PLXT), up $2.68, or 67.34%, to $6.66, after saying it will be acquired by Integrated Device Technology (IDTI) for $7 per share in cash and stock, and P.F. Chang's (PFCB), up $11.79, or 29.71%, to $51.48, on news it will be acquired and taken private by Centerbridge Partners for $51.50 per share in cash. Noteworthy losers included Herbalife (HLF), down $14.02, or 19.94%, to $56.30, after hedge fund manager and noted short-seller David Einhorn asked some critical questions during the company's earnings conference call, and Pep Boys (PBY), down $3.31, or 22.17%, to $11.62, after the Gores Group hinted it may attempt to walk away from its proposed $1B takeover of the company following Pep Boys' warning on its Q1 results... INDICES: The Dow gained 65.69, or 0.50%, to 13,279.32; the Nasdaq rose 4.08, or 0.13%, to 3,050.44; and the S&P 500 added 7.91, or 0.57%, to 1,405.82.

10:32 EDTPFEPfizer CEO says company still open to inversion deal, FT says
Pfizer (PFE) CEO Ian Read said U.S. rhetoric against tax inversions has been "political theater" ahead of midterm elections and made clear that his company is still open to a potential tax-saving acquisition, according to Financial Times, which added Read's comment about not being “held hostage” over price would likely be read as a signal the company might look elsewhere after being rebuffed by AstraZeneca (AZN). The Fly notes that Bloomberg previously reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that Pfizer is looking at targets other than AstraZeneca, including Actavis (ACT). Shares of Actavis trading in New York are up 2% this morning. Reference Link
