Stocks on Wall Street were mixed as the ongoing fears over the situation in Cyprus weighed on the S&P, though the Dow was able to eke out a modest gain. Data released before the open showed housing permits rose to multi-year highs, but headlines out of Europe kept the averages under pressure for much of the afternoon... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts climbed 0.8% from the prior month to a 917K rate in February. Building permits rose by 4.6% to a 946K rate, which was significantly ahead of the consensus forecast. In Europe, ongoing fears about how the situation in Cyprus will play out, including renewed worries that the nation will default or be forced to leave the euro zone, sent the euro currency lower against the U.S. dollar. Cyprus' parliament defeated the bank levy bill and afternoon headlines from Bloomberg said the ECB will provide liquidity to that nation, though only within its existing rules... COMPANY NEWS: Liberty Media (LMCA) announced an agreement to pay $2.617B for a 27.3% stake in Charter Communications (CHTR).

MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Walgreen (WAG), up $2.31, or 5.44%, to $44.74 after reporting earnings and announcing it agreed to a long-term pharmaceutical distribution agreement with AmerisourceBergen (ABC). AmerisourceBergen shares rose $1.76, or 3.64%, to $50.06 after the agreement, which grants Walgreen the right to buy a stake in AmerisourceBergen. Among the noteworthy losers was Electronic Arts (EA), down $1.56, or 8.34%, to $17.15 after its CEO resigned and the company warned it will likely come in below or near the bottom of its prior guidance. Also lower was Cardinal Health (CAH), down $3.78, or 8.19%, to $42.35 after the company announced its agreement with Walgreen will end in August and the company provided a FY14 EPS view below consensus...

10:23 EDTLULUAnalyst warns lululemon seeing increased competition in Canada
lululemon's (LULU) Canadian stores will probably be under pressure as new competitors have entered the company's core yoga apparel market there, research firm Macquarie warned in a note to investors earlier today. The firm highlighted one such competitor, Lole's Learning. WHAT'S NEW: Canada based Lole’s Learning and lululemon have similar products, similar prices, similar marketing events and similar store locations, Macquarie analyst Laurent Vasilescu reported. However, Lole's prices are "a tad more competitive," the analyst stated. Lole's started out as a wholesaler, but now has about 2,000 retail locations, many of which are within walking distance of lululemon stores, the analyst stated. Lole's has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 29% over the last five years, according to Vasilescu, who kept a $42 price target and Underperform rating on lululemon. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On June 9, lululemon reported slightly stronger than expected first quarter results and said that its U.S. stores were posting strong same-store sales trends in the initial weeks of Q2, while its Canadian stores were seeing positive Q2 comp trends. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, lululemon rose 1% to $68.29.
