19:44 EDTCNICanadian National offers union 'opportunity' to settlement through negotiation
CN said it is offering the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference - Conductors, Trainpersons and Yardpersons one last opportunity to reach a contract settlement through negotiation on the condition the union agrees upfront to binding arbitration if the talks fail. The TCRC-CTY represents approximately 3,000 CN train conductors, trainpersons, yardpersons and traffic coordinators on CN's network in Canada. Senior CN officers are prepared to meet immediately with the union's bargaining committee, enlisting the assistance of federal mediators if necessary, to break the impasse with the TCRC-CTY. Unfortunately, the union has yet to accept the company's March 20 offer of binding arbitration to settle outstanding contractual issues. Claude Mongeau, CN president and CEO, said: "CN's extensive, good-faith bargaining with the TCRC-CTY throughout the fall of 2013 produced a progressive agreement to address the union's concerns about work-life balance and help the company improve service and efficiency. "After that agreement failed to ratify in January 2014, CN resumed negotiations with the union and secured a second tentative agreement against the backdrop of a union strike notice. This second tentative agreement narrowly failed ratification this week by a margin of less than 40 votes. "CN is willing to go back to the bargaining table with TCRC-CTY one last time to achieve a fair settlement. But we can only do that if the union commits upfront to binding arbitration in the event our negotiations fail. In the current circumstances, we must move forward with an approach that will provide certainty of outcome for our employees, customers and other stakeholders." CN is asking the TCRC-CTY to respond to its final bargaining offer by tomorrow, March 22, at the latest.

16:20 EDTCNIOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in relatively quiet fashion and remained that way throughout the session until a sharp selloff in the closing minutes. For most of the day the averages moved in a narrow range, as the Dow broke its streak of consecutive days with triple digit moves. Like stocks, the oil markets had a quiet session that stood out amid the recent volatility in crude prices. A late day drop prevented the major stock indexes from adding to the big gains they'd notched on Friday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed's national activity index fell to -0.11 in February, below expectations for a reading of 0.10. Existing home sales rose 1.2% to a 4.88M rate in February, which was below the consensus forecast for them to grow 2% to a 4.92M unit rate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Kansas City Southern (KSU) declined $9.21, or 7.96%, to $106.48 after the railroad operator lowered its fiscal year revenue guidance to reflect slower year-to-date carload growth primarily from the energy sector, along with a continued deterioration in the value of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar and lower fuel surcharge revenues driven by lower WTI prices. The revenue warning appeared to weigh on others in the rail industry as well, with Union Pacific (UNP) falling $4.67, or 3.98%, to $112.78, Norfolk Southern (NSC) dropping $3.87, or 3.5%, to $106.56 and Canadian National (CNI) sliding $1.13, or 1.65%, to $67.24. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was ImmunoGen (IMGN), which gained $1.25, or 16.8%, to $8.69 after Takeda (TKPYY) licensed rights to use the company's antibody drug conjugate technology. Also higher was Tenet Healthcare (THC), which rose $2.45, or 4.94%, to $52.07 after agreeing to combine its short-stay surgery and imaging center assets into a new joint venture with United Surgical Partners International. Tenet will initially own 50.1% of the joint venture and will consolidate its financial results and will have a path to full ownership of USPI over the next five years through a put/call structure, the company noted. Among the noteworthy losers was MEI Pharma (MEIP), which plunged $4.37, or 69.37%, to $1.93 and was downgraded by at least four Wall Street research firms after the combination of Pracinostat and azacitidine showed no difference in the rate of complete remission, the primary endpoint of a Phase II study, compared to azacitidine alone. Also lower were shares of Vertex (VRTX), which fell $5.21, or 3.98%, to $125.79 after reporting data from a study evaluating VX-661 in combination with ivacaftor in cystic fibrosis that JPMorgan said was generally below expectations. INDEXES: The Dow fell 11.61, or 0.06%, to 18,116.04, the Nasdaq lost 15.44, or 0.31%, to 5,010.97, and the S&P 500 dropped 3.68, or 0.17%, to 2,104.42.
