09:18 EDTWLB, CLDCloud Peak amends throughput agreement with Westshore Terminals
Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) announced that its logistics business has increased its committed capacity and extended the term of its throughput agreement with Westshore Terminals Limited Partnership for exports of low sulfur coal from Roberts Bank, British Columbia. In a related agreement, Cloud Peak Energy paid $37M to Coal Valley Resources, a recently acquired unit of Westmoreland Coal (WLB), for CVRI to voluntarily terminate its throughput agreement with Westshore Terminals, freeing up available space at the fully utilized Westshore Terminal. The amendment to Cloud Peak Energy’s throughput agreement is effective as of January 1, 2015 and extends the term through the end of 2024. The amendment also increases annual throughput volumes and associated take-or-pay commitments. As a result of the amendment, Cloud Peak Energy expects to increase its 2015 Asian exports to 6.0 to 6.5 million tons, compared to the 4.0 to 4.5 million tons currently forecasted for 2014. Cloud Peak Energy plans to provide additional 2015 export guidance in early 2015 as part of its year-end 2014 earnings announcement. Starting in 2019, Cloud Peak Energy expects to increase its Asian exports through the Westshore Terminal to 7.0 to 7.5 million tons.

12:24 EDTCLDOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower at midday after a surprise power play by the country's Prime Minister may lead to either his exit from power or the country's exit from the euro zone. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In Europe, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras called a surprise referendum for July 5 on the terms put forth by the country’s creditors in exchange for additional rescue funding. Meanwhile, the European Central Bank decided not to expand its emergency liquidity assistance to Greek banks, leading the country to shut down its banking system and move to impose capital controls. In Asia, the People’s Bank of China cut the one-year lending rate by 25 basis points to 4.85% and lowered the amount of reserves certain banks are required to hold by 50 basis points, but the Shanghai Composite still closed the day with another 3.3% in losses. In the U.S., the National Association of Realtors' pending home sales index rose 0.9% to 112.6 in May, which was roughly in-line with expectations but also marked the highest level since April 2006. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of several coal miners advanced after the Supreme Court overturned the Environmental Protection Agency's air quality regulations for power plants, stating that the regulator did not properly take into account the costs to utilities and others in the sector. Peabody Energy (BTU) rose 5% after the ruling, while Arch Coal (ACI) gained 8% and Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) added about 3%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Aratana Therapeutics (PETX), which jumped 17.5% after the company announced results from its study of capromorelin, the company's therapeutic for appetite stimulation in dogs. Also higher was Amphenol (APH), which gained 4% after announcing it has entered into exclusive negotiations and has made a binding offer to acquire 100% of the shares of FCI Asia, which is involved in interconnect solutions for the telecom, datacom, wireless communications and industrial markets, for $1.275B from its private equity owner Bain Capital. Among the noteworthy losers were bond insurers MBIA (MBI), which dropped 18%, and Assured Guaranty (AGO), which fell 13.5%, after Puerto Rico's Governor said that the commonwealth would not be able to pay its debts and called for concessions from the island’s creditors. Both stocks were downgraded at BTIG following the news. Also lower following the news in Puerto Rico were First Bancorp (FBP), the bank holding company for FirstBank Puerto Rico, and Popular (BPOP), the parent of Banco Popular de Puerto Rico. Shares of Vitae Pharmaceuticals (VTAE) declined 16% after the company announced that an ongoing Phase 2 trial of its treatment of overweight type 2 diabetic patients did not meet partner Boehringer Ingelheim's predefined endpoint criteria. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 218.57, or 1.22%, to 17,728.11, the Nasdaq was down 69.65, or 1.37%, to 5,010.85, and the S&P 500 was down 25.68, or 1.22%, to 2,075.81.
