13:07 EDTSEASSeaWorld says new advertising campaign highlights killer whale care
SeaWorld Entertainment launched a new advertising campaign highlighting the company's leadership in the care of killer whales and contributions to protect whales both in human care and in the wild. The campaign will emphasize SeaWorld's 50-year commitment to continuous evolution – including its recent announcement of new killer whale habitats – while setting the record straight on false accusations by activists who oppose whales and other animals in zoological settings. "There's been a lot of misinformation and even lies spread about SeaWorld, and we recognize that it has caused some people to have questions about the welfare of killer whales in human care," said David D'Alessandro, Chairman and Interim CEO of SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. "This long-term campaign will address those questions head on. We want to provide the facts, so people can make up their own minds on this important issue."

12:38 EDTVTSSOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday ahead of the conclusion of the Federal Reserve's latest rate setting meeting and the central bank's accompanying announcements. The averages began the session in negative territory and have been range-bound throughout the morning. The Dow was down triple digits once again, making 8 consecutive days that the blue chip index has seen a triple digit move. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the DOE petroleum inventory reports showed a 9.6M barrel rise in crude stocks in the week of March 13, versus expectations for a 4.4M build. The day's big economic news is yet to come, with the Fed's FOMC meeting announcement due at 2:00 pm EDT and Fed Chair Yellen holding a press conference a half hour later. Elsewhere, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unexpectedly defeated his main challenger in Israel’s election and his Likud party appears set to capture more parliament seats. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of FedEx (FDX) slid 2.5% after the shipping giant reported earnings that beat estimates, but revenue that fell short of the consensus forecast, for its third fiscal quarter. FedEx noted that it expects to deliver "record" yearly earnings for the current fiscal year and next fiscal year as well... Oracle (ORCL) shares rose 2.5% after the company's third quarter profits matched expectations and it raised its quarterly dividend 25%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Vitesse Semiconductor (VTSS), which jumped 37% after the company agreed to be acquired for $5.28 per share in cash by Microsemi (MSCC). Also higher was Retrophin (RTRX), which rose 28% after the company said it will exercise its right to purchase from Asklepion Pharmaceuticals all worldwide rights, titles, and ownership of Cholbam after the FDA approved the drug for the treatment of pediatric and adult patients with bile acid synthesis disorders due to single enzyme defects and for patients with peroxisomal disorders. Among the noteworthy losers was Willbros Group (WG), which dropped 55% and was downgraded to Underperform at DA Davidson after announcing its earnings report will be delayed and the company is in potential non-compliance with debt covenants. Also lower following their earnings reports were Nektar Therapeutics (NKTR), which fell 15% after the company's Phase III BEACON metastatic breast cancer study missed its primary endpoint. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 105.02, or 0.59%, to 17,744.06, the Nasdaq was down 12.45, or 0.25%, to 4,924.99, and the S&P 500 was down 7.69, or 0.37%, to 2,066.59.
