16:42 EDTHDOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the day almost unchanged as investors awaited the testimony from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen before a Senate panel. Following her prepared remarks, which suggested the central bank will not rush to raise interest rates, buyers stepped in to push the market higher. The Dow moved to all-time highs, as did the S&P, while the Nasdaq extended its most recent streak that saw the index close higher for nine consecutive sessions for the first time that has happened since 2009. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen stated in prepared testimony to Congress that the central bank considers it "unlikely" that economic conditions will warrant an increase in the target range for the federal funds rate for "at least the next couple" of FOMC meetings. Yellen also said that while the drop in oil prices will have negative effects on energy producers and will probably result in job losses in this sector, it will likely be a significant overall net positive for the U.S. economy. The S&P Case-Shiller 20-city house price index reported a seasonally adjusted monthly increase of 0.9%, versus expectations for an increase of 0.6%. Markit's services PMI for February came in at 57.0, versus consensus of 54.5. The Conference Board consumer confidence index declined in February to 96.4, which was down from last month's revised 103.8 figure and below the consensus 99.5 forecast. The Richmond Fed manufacturing index for February came in at 0, versus the consensus expectation for a reading of 6. In Europe, eurozone finance ministers approved Greece's reform proposals and extended the country's bailout program by four more months. COMPANY NEWS: Home Depot (HD) advanced $4.47, or 3.98%, to $116.75 after the Dow member's earnings beat expectations. The home improvement giant also hiked its quarterly dividend by 26% and authorized an $18B share repurchase program. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was SunPower (SPWR), which rose $5.00, or 17.99%, to $32.80 after its quarterly results topped expectations and the company announced that its in advanced talks to form a joint YieldCo vehicle with peer First Solar (FSLR). First Solar shares also advanced $5.06, or 10.19%, to $54.70 during the session, though its shares are fractionally lower in after-hours trading after the company issued its own earnings report. Among the noteworthy losers was Rosetta Resources (ROSE), which fell $3.29, or 15.04%, to $18.58 after its weaker than expected Q4 report and lowered guidance was followed by at least five analyst downgrades of its stock. Also lower were shares of Wynn Resorts (WYNN), which slid $7.33, or 4.75%, to $147.00 after reports indicated that Macau's government views overcrowding from tourists as a serious problem and plans to review the mainland’s individual visit scheme with authorities after Chinese New Year. INDEXES: The Dow rose 92.35, or 0.51%, to 18,209.19, the Nasdaq gained 7.15, or 0.14%, to 4,968.12, and the S&P 500 added 5.82, or 0.28%, to 2,115.48.

16:17 EDTDALBuckeye Partners reduces FY14 revenue by $40M due to settlement discussions
Buckeye Partners (BPL) announced revisions to its financial results for Q4 and FY14 due to a recent development. As has been previously disclosed, commencing in September 2012, Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), United/Continental Air Lines (UAL), US Airways, and American Airlines (AAL) filed complaints with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission challenging rates for transportation of jet fuel from New Jersey to three New York City area airports charged by Buckeye Pipe Line Company, an operating subsidiary of Buckeye. The Airlines are seeking payments for alleged past excessive charges and prospective tariff rate reductions. As the litigation has progressed, BPLC and the Airlines have continued to pursue settlement discussions. Due to positive developments in those settlement discussions subsequent to Buckeye's issuance of its 2014 earnings on Friday, February 6, Buckeye has recorded a reduction in revenue in the amount of $40M for the year ended December 31, 2014 in accordance with applicable accounting guidance regarding contingencies. This reduction in revenue is a one-time charge; therefore, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow for 2014 remain as reported on February 6th. The $40M is based upon a settlement offer made by BPLC to satisfy the claims for alleged past excessive charges through December 31, 2014, which offer has not been accepted by the Airlines. "While we continue to pursue settlement of this matter, we are not able to predict with certainty the final outcome of the proceeding, should it be carried through to its conclusion, or whether we can reach a satisfactory settlement and, if so, whether or not it will be on more or less favorable terms," the company said.
