09:53 EDTMMacy's retreats after Deutsche cuts to sell, says real estate sale unlikely
The shares of Macy's (M) are falling in early trading after research firm Deutsche Bank downgraded the stock to Sell from Buy, saying that the retailer is facing numerous challenges. WHAT'S NEW: Macy's same-store sales are likely to remain "anemic," partly due to tourism headwinds and increased competition from its own vendors, Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Meanwhile, the company's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization is likely to remain "flattish," partly because of higher shipping and healthcare costs and lower leverage on its sales, the analyst stated. Given all of these challenges, Macy's profit growth will probably not exceed high single digit percentage levels over the next couple of years, while its share repurchases will probably be reduced, Trussell said. Although Macy's could drive significant value by monetizing its real estate portfolio, it's unlikely to do so, according to Trussell. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On June 2, Reuters reported that Macy's would listen to a request by hedge funds who were asking the company to consider options for its real estate holdings. However, the company was worried that selling real estate and then leasing it back would saddle it with significant leasing costs, the news service noted. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Macy's fell 2.1% to $68.38.

08:54 EDTDEAGCO sale to Deere or CNH unlikely, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill said an AGCO (AGCO) sale to Deere (DE) or CNH (CNHI) is unlikely given antitrust factors and a tie-up with Japan's Kubota would face cultural obstacles. The firm raised its price target on Neutral rated AGCO to $58 from $53 to reflect activist investor Blue Harbour's increased stake but said industry fundamentals may still get worse.

16:17 EDTPFOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Friday
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the entire day. The economic calendar was quiet and the news flow was slow, leaving the averages to move in a narrow range until the final hour, when “quadruple witching” action kicked in and moved them a leg lower. The simultaneous expiration of futures and options can cause increased volatility, which occurred as the day’s volume was light. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Baker Hughes reported that the U.S. Rig Count declined 2 rigs from last week to 857. In Europe, the ECB agreed to raise the limit on Emergency Liquidity Assistance to Greek banks for the second time in a week, though there were contradictory reports about the size of the increase. Next, the eurozone's heads of government will meet for an emergency summit to discuss Greece on Monday. In Asia, China's Shanghai Composite index dropped 6.4%, bringing the benchmark's weekly loss to 13.3% and sending the index into correction territory. The Bank of Japan kept interest rates unchanged and maintained its asset purchases program, as expected. The BOJ also said it will reduce the number of policy meetings it holds each year to 8 from the current 14 meetings, putting it on par with other major central banks. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of ConAgra (CAG) advanced $4.31, or 11.02%, to $43.43 after activist investor Jana Partners reported that it has acquired a 7.2% stake in the packaged foods company. Jana suggested that the company should undertake a strategic review of its strategy and corporate structure to determine if its businesses are optimally positioned to succeed, as well as various potential alternative transactions and structures... Another food producer, Hershey (HSY), fell $3.38, or 3.66%, to $88.89 after lowering its outlook for this fiscal year. The chocolate maker said its North America confectionery business is on track to deliver on its 2015 financial objectives, but cited growth in China that was below expectations for its lowered outlook. Hershey also announced the implementation of a new productivity initiative that will result in the company cutting about 300 jobs by the end of this year. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following the activist involvement in ConAgra were a number of its peers, including Pinnacle Foods (PF), which rose 8.58% to $46.80, and Treehouse Foods (THS), which gained 4.86% to $75.55. Also higher was KB Home (KBH), which gained $1.41, or 9.43%, to $16.37 after the homebuilder reported better than expected results for its fiscal second quarter. Among the noteworthy losers was Healthways (HWAY), which sunk $3.13, or 20.15%, to $12.40 after the health management solutions provider lowered its revenue outlook for fiscal year 2015. Also lower were shares of Finisar (FNSR), which fell $2.27, or 10.25%, to $19.88 and were downgraded at Raymond James following the company's fourth quarter earnings report last night. INDEXES: The Dow dropped 101.56, or 0.56%, to 18,014.28, the Nasdaq fell 15.95, or 0.31%, to 5,117.00, and the S&P 500 lost 11.49, or 0.54%, to 2,109.75.
