15:04 EDTDALDelta Air Lines technical commentary ahead of results
The shares have outperformed moderately in the last three months despite some wide swings in price. In the period the share price peak was at $42.66, which is also the 52-week high. On strong news, that high could be retested, with initial resistance at $40.31. On negative news, there is a technical factor to consider of a longer-term nature which is that the uptrend in place since last September has already been broken. Price is below the 200-day moving average. A disappointment would no doubt reinforce the shorter-term bearish trend. Support below the current price of $37.56 would be at $33.32 and then at $31.73.

12:33 EDTDALOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday as the market looks to break the two day skid that started the day after Nasdaq broke 5,000. A lower growth forecast in China is being offset this morning by Europe getting more constructive on its outlook, as the European Central Bank raised its growth forecasts and confirmed that it plans to start its bond buying program next week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 7K to 320K in the week ended February 28, which was above the consensus forecast for 296K first-time claims. Nonfarm productivity in the fourth quarter was revised to -2.2% from -1.8% in the government's prior estimate. Unit labor costs are now believed to have risen 4.1% in Q4, which is up from the 2.7% growth estimated in the advance report. Factory orders dipped 0.2% in January, versus expectations for them to be up 0.2%. China's government set an economic growth rate target of about 7% for 2015, which is down from the 7.5% target that it narrowly missed last year with its 2014 GDP growth of 7.4%. In Europe, both the Bank of England and European Central Bank kept their key interest rates unchanged. As is often the case in Europe, the real news came after the rate decision when ECB president Mario Draghi held his press conference. During the conference, Draghi said the bank's first asset purchases will come next week as part of its plan to buy $66B a month in bonds. The ECB also raised its economic growth forecasts for this year and next and said its inflation outlook puts it on track to reach its inflation goal near 2%. COMPANY NEWS: AbbVie (ABBV) agreed to buy Pharmacyclics (PCYC) for $261.25 per share, or $21B, the companies announced. Pharmacyclics' flagship product is Imbruvica, a treatment for hematologic cancers, that it co-markets with Johnson &Johnson (JNJ). Media reports as late as last night said J&J was close to buying its partner. Piper Jaffray said AbbVie paid a "staggering" price for Pharmacyclics when taking into account the company bought only 50% of the rights to Imbruvica and that "nearly everything looks cheap" in the biotechnology space when the deal's metrics are used as a benchmark against other names. Deutsche Bank however, views AbbVie's acquisition as a positive, saying the deal provides near term top-line growth and diversifies its business away from Humira... A Delta (DAL) plane skidded off the runway at New York's La Guardia Airport, prompting the airport to close until later this evening. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Kythera Biopharmaceuticals (KYTH), which gained nearly 25% after the FDA released briefing documents for an advisory committee meeting planned for March 9 to discuss the company's deoxycholic acid, or DCA. Kythera is seeking approval for DCA for the improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults, more commonly known as "double-chin." Also higher after its earnings report was grocery store operator Kroger (KR), which advanced 5%. Among the noteworthy losers was Greif (GEF), which dropped 13.5% after its earnings missed expectations, with the company stating that profits were adversely impacted by product and geographic mix issues resulting in lower gross profit and a higher effective tax rate. Also lower was mining equipment maker Joy Global (JOY), which fell about 7% after the company's results missed forecasts and it cut it fiscal year outlook. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 26.04, or 0.14%, to 18,122.94, the Nasdaq was up 11.33, or 0.23%, to 4,978.47, and the S&P 500 was up 0.94, or 0.04%, to 2,099.47.

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.
