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.

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...
