16:47 EDTAMAG, TSLA, ARX, NWSA, MNST, CSCOOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, as a disappointing outlook from Cisco (CSCO) and continued worries about Europe weighed on the averages. Stock futures moved higher following the in line jobless claims data, leading to a higher open for the broader market. The market met resistance at the open and began to pullback before making a second run at the resistance level. After failing a second time the market began to give up its gains, with the Nasdaq falling into negative territory. By the afternoon the market had strengthened and once again all three of the major equity indices were above the flat line. However, at the close the Nasdaq was back in the red, barely preventing the big three from ending positive for the first time in several days… ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., 367,000 initial jobless claims were reported, basically falling in line with last week's figure and with consensus estimates. The U.S. trade deficit grew 14.1% to $51.83B in March, versus estimates of $50.0B. Also, the U.S. Treasury posted a $59.1B budget surplus for April, versus expectations of a surplus of $35B. In Europe, some fears about Spain's banking system eased after its government said it will nationalize the country's fourth-largest bank... COMPANY NEWS: Cisco reported quarterly earnings and revenue that just beat consensus views but forecast earnings in the coming quarter below the Street's expectations. The company's pessimistic view on challenges in Europe and weakness in India resonated with investors and the stock slid more than 10%... News Corp. (NWSA) shares gained close to 5% after the company reported revenue and profit that beat expectations and it raised its stock repurchase program by $5B to $10B... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Tesla Motors (TSLA), up $2.90, or 9.65%, to $32.96, after it reported quarterly sales and losses that were worse than expected but also increased the low end of its full year revenue guidance, and Monster Beverage (MNST), up $5.86, or 8.97%, to $71.17, after the energy-drink maker reported Q1 results that exceeded expectations, with volume and gross margin increasing. Noteworthy losers included Aeroflex Holding (ARX), down $2.44, or 25.39%, to $7.17, after missing on Q3 EPS and revenue and making Q4 predictions that fell well short of analyst estimates, and AMAG Pharma (AMAG), down $2.35, or 14.67%, to $13.67, after the company named a new CEO and indicated it would stop seeking to sell itself... INDICES: The Dow gained $19.98, or 0.16%, to $12,855.04; the Nasdaq fell $1.07, or 0.04%, to $2,933.64; and the S&P 500 added $3.41, or 0.25%, to $1,357.99.

08:29 EDTNWSANews Corp completes acquisition of Move, Inc
News Corp announced that it has successfully completed its acquisition of Move, Inc. Move is a provider of online real estate services and operates a network of sites, including realtor.com, the official website for the National Association of Realtors. The previously announced tender offer by a subsidiary of News Corp for all of the outstanding shares of Move common stock at a price of $21.00 per share expired as scheduled at the end of the day, 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on November 13, 2014. Excluding shares tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery, a total of approximately 34,299,586 shares were validly tendered into and not withdrawn from the tender offer, representing, together with the shares owned by News Corp and its subsidiaries, approximately 83.1% of Move’s outstanding shares. As a result, News Corp, through its subsidiary, has accepted for payment and will promptly pay for all such validly tendered shares pursuant to the terms of the tender offer. Following its acceptance of the tendered shares, News Corp completed the acquisition by causing the merger of its subsidiary with and into Move without a vote of Move’s stockholders, pursuant to Section 251(h) of the Delaware General Corporation Law. Upon completion of the merger, Move became an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of News Corp. As a result of the merger and in accordance with the terms of the merger agreement, all eligible Move shares not tendered into the tender offer were cancelled and converted into the right to receive $21.00 per share in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes, the same price per share offered in the tender offer. As a result of the acquisition, Move shares ceased to be traded on the NASDAQ Stock Market. REA Group Limited, in which News Corp owns a 61.6% interest, has entered into a definitive agreement with News Corp to acquire a 20% stake in Move. The transaction is expected to be completed on November 17.
