16:22 EDTEA, LULU, ABC, LMCA, CAH, WAG, CHTROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
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.

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.

05:44 EDTLMCASpringOwl calls for Yahoo, Viacom to seek partners, Reuters reports
SpringOwl Asset Management, which holds undisclosed stakes in Yahoo (YHOO) and Viacom (VIA), is urging the boards of both companies to seek investments from strategic partner, Reuters reports, citing an article that is set to be published today. SpringOwl managing director Eric Jackson says that "Although some shareholders of both Yahoo and Viacom think that a simple sale or break-up of both companies is the best way to create value for shareholders, we believe that both companies could benefit from their own version of the 'Buffett Convert,'" and that while stakes of investors would be diluted if an outside investor steps in, but "they would still be better off because their shares would likely get re-rated upwards substantially with this new partner sitting around the board table." Jackson believes Yahoo should seek outside investment from Liberty Media (LMCA), Verizon (VZ) or AT&T (T), while Viacom would benefit from Alibaba (BABA), Amazon (AMZN) or AMC Entertainment (AMC).
