12:14 EDTCLF, AOL, MFRM, LOGM, RAXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday though well off their worst levels. The market dropped sharply at the open, with the early weakness being attributed to continued worries about Europe, where Cyprus has yet to reopen its banks and Italy is still struggling to form a new government. The selling soon pushed the Dow to triple digit losses, but the Dow and the other averages cut their losses by more than half by noon. In addition to the impending holiday weekend, the end of the quarter is approaching and investment managers may be making portfolio adjustments today and tomorrow since they will be unable to on Friday... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., pending home sales dipped 0.4% in February from the prior month, compared to expectations for a 0.3% decline. On a year-over-year basis, however, pending sales were up 5%. In Europe, Italian benchmark bonds fell after the nation's Democratic Party leader Pier Luigi Bersani said there was no possibility of a broad coalition to resolve the deadlock caused by last month's elections... COMPANY NEWS: Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF) was in the sights of a number of Wall Street analysts, as Morgan Stanley cut its rating on the stock to Underweight from Equal Weight and Credit Suisse lowered its price target on the stock to $10 from $30. Goldman Sachs upgraded Cliffs due to valuation, but that only brought the firm's rating up to a Neutral from its prior Sell recommendation. Shares of Cliffs sank 15% following the flurry of notes to investors... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Mattress Firm (MFRM), up 10% following its earnings report, and AOL (AOL), up over 7% after being upgraded at Barclays. Among the noteworthy losers was LogMeln (LOGM), which slid 12% near noon to give back some of the 20% advance it garnered yesterday following a positive ruling in a patent lawsuit. Also lower were shares of Rackspace (RAX), which fell 4% after CLSA initiated coverage of the stock with an Underperform rating and $52 price target... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 44.94, or 0.31%, to 14,514.71; the Nasdaq was down 6.03, or 0.19%, to 3,246.45; and the S&P 500 was down 4.09, or 0.26%, to 1,559.68.

16:50 EDTMFRMOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory but were never able to gain any upside momentum. There was little to account for the initial move other than no change to the status quo for Israel and Russia. The averages moved in a narrow range but managed to stay on the plus side into the close, though in lackluster fashion. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no significant economic data was released. In prepared comments for a conference, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said rebounds across advanced economies have been disappointing, leading the Fed and other observers to lower their long-term expectations for growth potential in the U.S. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Kinder Morgan (KMI) advanced $3.25, or 9.0%, to $39.37 after announcing it will consolidate its oil-and-gas holdings into one company by acquiring all of the outstanding shares of a number of its subsidiaries, including Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Kinder Morgan Management (KMR) and El Paso Pipeline Partners (EPB). The total transaction has a value of about $70B and the combined entity will be the largest energy infrastructure company in North America and the third largest energy company overall with an estimated enterprise value of approximately $140B, the company said. Afterward, Kinder Morgan was upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA Merrill Lynch, though Wells Fargo viewed the plans as mixed near-term. Wells believes the deal helps address some of the structural issues that have been pressuring Kinderís valuation in recent quarters, but it believes itís unclear how the market will ultimately value the new structure and the firm kept its Market Perform rating on all four stocks involved. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was salad and banana distributor Chiquita Brands (CQB), which jumped $3.04, or 30.22%, to $13.10 to close above the $13 per share takeover offer announced by Cutrale Group and the Safra Group. Note that Chiquita previously agreed to combine with Fyffes plc in a stock-for-stock transaction. Also higher was Mattress Firm (MFRM), which advanced $6.52, or 13.58%, to $54.53 after reporting preliminary second quarter results that beat expectations and raising it fiscal year outlook. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were Walter Investment (WAC), which fell $3.52, or 12.45%, to $24.75, and Inovio (INO), which dropped 99c, or 9.94%, to $8.97. INDEXES: The Dow edged up 16.05, or 0.1%, to 16,569.98, the Nasdaq gained 30.43, or 0.7%, to 4,401.33, and the S&P 500 rose 5.33, or 0.28%, to 1,936.92.
