12:05 EDTCHKOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street began the session deep in negative territory and proceeded to move lower throughout the session, amid a renewed selloff in oil prices and fears that bankruptcies related to the prolonged slump will begin to pick up pace. The move lower is not restricted to the energy sector and has been broad-based, as each of the major equity indexes was lower by about 2% or more. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the labor market conditions index came in at 0.4 for January, below expectations for a reading of 2.0. In Asia, markets in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea were all closed for the New Year holiday. Data was still released in China that showed the country's foreign currency reserves fell to their lowest level since May 2012, dropping about $99B in January, though that was better than analysts forecast and ahead of some recent whispers. COMPANY NEWS: Chesapeake Energy (CHK) tumbled over 50%, dropping as low as $1.50 per share, after media reports indicated that the natural gas producer has hired restructuring lawyers from Kirkland & Ellis. Subsequently, the stock was halted pending news and the company confirmed that Kirkland & Ellis continues to advise the company as it seeks to further strengthen its balance sheet. However, Chesapeake noted that it currently has "no plans to pursue bankruptcy," and its shares recovered some of their earlier losses upon being reopened for trading. The stock was down a bit over 25% near noon... Meanwhile, another player in the oil space with ties to Chesapeake, Energy Transfer Equity (ETE), declined 30% after the company disclosed, via a regulatory filing after Friday's close, that it was making a change to the Chief Financial Officer of its general partner. According to the company, the departure of CFO Jamie Welch from the post was not caused by any disagreements between him and the MLP over accounting issues or financial matters. Williams Company (WMB), with has agreed to merge with Energy Transfer, also slid 25%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Apollo Education (APOL), which rallied 25% after it agreed to be acquired by a group led by private equity company Apollo Global (APO) for $9.50 per share. Also higher was GoPro (GPRO), which gained 9% after Microsoft (MSFT) announced a new collaborative patent licensing agreement with the beaten down action camera maker. Among the noteworthy losers was Sarepta (SRPT), which fell 12% after the FDA delayed a decision on the company's Duchenne muscular dystrophy treatment eteplirsen. Also lower was BioCryst (BCRX), which plunged 67% after a clinical trial of its hereditary angioedema drug failed to meet its primary endpoint. In addition, DexCom (DXCM) was 17% lower after it was downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 317.14, or 1.96%, to 15,887.83, the Nasdaq was down 101.02, or 2.32%, to 4,262.12, and the S&P 500 was down 36.43, or 1.94%, to 1,843.62.

During 2015, CONSOL Energy added 934 Bcfe, net to CONSOL, of proved reserves through extensions and discoveries. As of December 31, 2015, total proved reserves were 5.6 Tcfe, which included 583 Bcfe, or 10.3%, of oil, condensate, and liquids.
