09:37 EDTMATMattel, Hasbro not in deal talks, CNBC's Faber reports
While Hasbro (HAS) did make an approach to Mattel (MAT) months ago, the two toymakers are not currently in talks, CNBC's David Faber reports, citing sources. Potential merger discussions are unlikely to resume given the antitrust challenges of a potential tie-up, Faber added. Mattel did not have much interest in a deal due in large part to regulatory concerns, the reporter noted. Bloomberg yesterday reported that Mattel and Hasbro had been in talks about a potential merger.

07:51 EDTALKSWoodford calls Alkermes, Prothena selloffs 'greatly overdone'
British businessman Neil Woodford's Woodford Investment Management said it added to Alkermes (ALKS) and Prothena (PRTA) positions at what it considers to be "extremely attractive valuation levels." In its January letter to investors, the fund says the recent share price moves "look greatly overdone." Woodford also sold its position in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and initiated a new stake in Theravance Biopharma (TBPH). The company "retains a valuable economic interest in the future commercial potential of the respiratory franchise being developed in partnership with GlaxoSmithKline," the fund wrote. It also has "some very interesting, albeit earlier-stage, assets in therapeutic areas such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiovascular & renal disease," it added. Woodford made no mention of Northwest Biotherapeutics (NWBO) in the letter, a company he invested in last year. Woodford Investment Management, established in 2014, describes itself as the "the opportunity for Neil Woodford, one of the UK's most highly-regarded fund managers, to distil his 30 years of experience and learning into a business founded on his own principles."

07:38 EDTTSNTyson Foods sees FY16 domestic protein production up 2%-3%
Tyson said: "In fiscal 2016, we expect domestic protein production, chicken, beef, pork and turkey, to increase approximately 2-3% from fiscal 2015 levels and moderate export growth. As a result, increased domestic availability could pressure protein pricing. As we proceed with the integration of Hillshire Brands, we expect to realize incremental synergies in excess of $200M above the amount of synergies realized in fiscal 2015. In total, we expect synergies of more than $500M in fiscal 2016 and more than $700M in fiscal 2017 from the acquisition as well as our profit improvement plan for our legacy Prepared Foods business. The majority of these benefits will be realized in our Prepared Foods segment." The company expects capital expenditures to approximate $900M for fiscal 2016.

16:47 EDTMATOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
Stocks had a roller coaster session, moving in a wide range and crossing the flat line several times during the day as the market continues to move in conjunction with the price of oil. Early in the session oil prices met resistance near $34 a barrel and equities were up by triple digits. When the price of crude pulled back, equities followed suit and ultimately turned negative. Oil prices struggled during the afternoon hours and closed down for the day. However, the averages drifted higher into the close and finished in the green. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Labor Department said that productivity fell at an annual rate of 3% in the fourth quarter, marking the biggest quarterly decline in nearly two years and worse than the expected decline of 2%. Labor costs rose 4.5% in the fourth quarter, versus expectations for an increase of 4.3%. Initial jobless claims rose to 285,000 in the week ended January 30, versus expectations for 277,000 first-time claims. Factory orders declined 2.9% in December, versus expectations for them to be down 2.8% for the month. In Europe, the European Commission lowered its 2016 economic growth forecast for the 19-nation single currency area to 1.7% from the 1.8% expansion the commission had forecast in November. The Bank of England also cut its economic growth forecasts, saying it now expects Britain's economy to grow 2.2% this year and 2.3% next year, which is down from the 2.5% growth for 2016 and 2.6% in 2017 that it previously predicted. Additionally, the BoE maintained its bank rate and held the size of its asset purchase program steady. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of GoPro (GPRO) sunk to all-time lows after the action camera maker reported fourth quarter revenue that fell $60M short of expectations and guided first quarter revenue even further below analyst forecasts. The stock fell as low as $9.01 early in the session before ending the day down 8.68% at $9.78. Ambarella (AMBA), a chip supplier that has often traded in tandem with GoPro in the past, gained 5.13% to $39.35, with several analysts highlighting the company's healthy business outside of GoPro... Sumner Redstone stepped down as executive chairman of both CBS (CBS) and Viacom (VIA, VIAB), being replaced by the CEOs of the companies in both cases. CBS shares were up 0.31% after Leslie Moonves was named the next chair of its board, while Class A shares of Viacom were up 2.33% after Philippe Dauman was selected to succeed Redstone... Mattel (MAT) and Hasbro (HAS) gained a respective 1.67% and 1.2% following Bloomberg's report that the two toymakers have held intermittent merger discussions after Hasbro approached its peer late last year. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Cascade Microtech (CSCD), which spiked 32.26% to $20.21 after agreeing to be acquired by FormFactor (FORM) for $16 per share. FormFactor declined 12.61% following the news. Also higher was VirnetX (VHC), which soared 46.14% to $7.00 after being awarded $625.6M in a patent dispute against Apple (AAPL). In addition, GrubHub (GRUB), McGraw Hill (MHFI) and Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) rose 12.8%, 7.7% and 7.6%, respectively, following their quarterly reports. Among the noteworthy losers were Ralph Lauren (RL) and Kohl's (KSS), which fell a respective 22.2% and 18.8% after reporting quarterly earnings and issuing underwhelming financial outlooks, with the negative signals also dragging down department store operators J.C. Penney (JCP), Macy's (M) and Nordstrom (JWN). Also lower was ConocoPhillips (COP), which declined 8.65% to $35.29 after the oil and gas explorer reported a worse than expected quarterly loss and slashed its dividend to 25c from 74c per share. CEO Ryan Lance said the decision to reduce the dividend was a "difficult one," but the company believes it is prudent to plan for lower commodity prices for a longer period of time. Meanwhile, AstraZeneca (AZN), Credit Suisse (CS) and MetLife (MET) slipped 5.9%, 10.8% and 5.3%, respectively, following their quarterly reports. INDEXES: The Dow rose 79.92, or 0.49%, to 16,416.58, the Nasdaq gained 5.32, or 0.12%, to 4,509.56, and the S&P 500 advanced 2.92, or 0.15%, to 1,915.45.
