08:20 EDTCPAckman says Herbalife short thesis reinforced by recent developments
"Recent developments at Herbalife reinforce our short thesis that HLF is an illegal pyramid that will collapse or otherwise be shut down by regulators," Bill Ackman stated in Pershing Square Holdings' quarterly letter to shareholders, which was released last night. "We continue to believe that the expiration of HLF’s $1.15B credit facility in 2016 is a potential catalyst for further stock price declines, as we are skeptical that the company will be able to access the credit markets in order to refinance or replace this facility," Ackman added. In the letter, Ackman also confirmed that the fund is currently doing due diligence on Actavis (ACT) to determine whether it should remain a long-term holder following the company's deal to acquire Allergan (AGN), noting that Pershing had recently met with the CEO of Actavis and were "impressed with him and his business plan for the combined company." Remarking on some of his other notable holdings, Ackman stated that Canadian Pacific’s (CP) transformation has been "nothing short of remarkable," that he believes the acquisition of Tim Hortons (THI) will create significant long-term value for Burger King (BKW) shareholders, and that early returns from Air Products' (APD) transformation are "promising."

16:34 EDTPOT, MOSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in quiet fashion and trading remained that way throughout the day. The Dow and S&P moved in a narrow range and hugged the flat line, while the Nasdaq drifted steadily higher and added nearly 1% by the close of trade. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed national activity index fell to 0.14 in October, versus expectations for a reading of 0.33. Markit's services PMI fell to 56.3 in the flash reading for November, versus expectations for a slight increase to 57.3 from its prior reading of 57.1. The Dallas Fed manufacturing index was steady at 10.5 in November, versus expectations for a 9.0 reading. Overseas, the euro area’s largest economy, Germany, saw a business climate index advance to 104.7 in November from 103.2 in October, beating economists' prediction for a decline to a reading of 103. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) had a role in the Nasdaq's outperformance, as the tech giant climbed after a number of research firms, including Susquehanna, Cantor and KGI Research, were upbeat on the outlook for the company's performance during the holiday season. The iPhone maker's stock rose $2.15, or 1.85%, to close at $118.62 to close just below the 52-week high of $118.77 it hit late in the session... United Technologies (UTX) fell $1.51, or 1.37%, to $108.79 after the Dow member announced that Louis Chenevert had retired as Chairman and CEO, effective immediately. The company reaffirmed its expectations for 2014 earnings per share and sales, but provided little information regarding the abrupt exit of the executive. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Prosensa (RNA), which surged $7.16, or 62.59%, to $18.60 after the small drugmaker agreed to be acquired by larger BioMarin (BMRN). After the deal announcement BioMarin shares also rose $2.11, or 2.46%, to $87.94, while Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), which is working on a Duchenne muscular dystrophy treatment to rival Prosensa's, advanced 88c, or 5.59%, to $16.61. Also higher was Cimatron (CIMT), which jumped $2.57, or 42.27%, to $8.65 after 3D Systems (DDD) agreed to buy the company for approximately $97M, or $8.97 per share, in cash. Among the noteworthy losers was Ring Energy (REI), which fell $1.28, or 9.54%, to $12.14 after Canaccord downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy, citing the the recent decline in crude oil prices and the potential need for the company to raise capital. Also lower were shares of Potash (POT), which fell $2.23, or 6.09%, to $34.40, and Mosaic (MOS), which slid $1.75, or 3.71%, to $45.46 after Russia's Uralkali, the world's largest potash producer, was reported to be set to start repair work at part of its damaged mine. INDEXES: The Dow added 7.84, or 0.04%, to 17,817.90, the Nasdaq rose 41.92, or 0.89%, to 4,754.89, and the S&P 500 gained 5.91, or 0.29%, to 2,069.41.
