16:14 EDTDYNOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
Stocks began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the day. The market has yet to de-couple from oil prices, as stocks continue to move in the direction of the commodity. The averages almost made it back to positive ground in the early afternoon, but with oil down more than 4% the sellers emerged and pushed the market toward session lows. The market continued to lose ground as oil fell further, giving up nearly 6% by the close on the New York Mercantile Exchange, bringing stocks' two day win streak to an end. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was light. The Dallas Fed manufacturing survey, the lone report of note, came in at -34.6, below the revised prior reading of -21.6 and short of the consensus -14.5 forecast. West Texas Intermediate for March delivery fell $1.85, or 5.8%, to close at $30.34 a barrel on the NYMEX. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McDonald's (MCD) advanced 0.7% to $119.20 after the fast food giant reported better than expected earnings and comparable sales growth for the fourth quarter, powered by the launch of All Day Breakfast in the U.S... Twitter (TWTR) fell 4.6% to $17.02 after CEO Jack Dorsey confirmed on Sunday night the departure of four company executives, leading research firm Stifel to downgrade the shares... Tyco (TYC) jumped 11.6% to $34.15 after reaching a merger agreement with Johnson Controls (JCI) which will see Johnson shareholders owning 56% of the combined company's equity. Johnson Controls fell 3.9% to $34.21 following the merger announcement. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Valeant (VRX), which rose 4.55% to $92.63 after hospitalized CEO Michael Pearson said he is "on the road to recovery" after a bout of pneumonia. The news was followed by announcements that Valeant has sold three of its skincare brands and received FDA acceptance of its biologics license application for psoriasis drug Brodalumab. Also higher was SunEdison (SUNE), which advanced 2.6% to $2.72 after the Wall Street Journal reported that the company is set to give David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital a seat on its board. Meanwhile, energy savings firm EnerNOC (ENOC) jumped 69.5% to $7.05 after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of FERC's so-called "demand response" rule, sending energy generators Dynegy (DYN) and Talen Energy (TLN) down a respective 11.6% and 6.2%. Among the noteworthy losers was OncoMed (OMED), which plunged 42.9% to $10.04 after its Phase 2 trial of tarextumab in pancreatic cancer showed futility in an interim analysis. Also lower were containerboard and paper makers KapStone (KS), WestRock (WRK) and Packaging Corp (PKG), which dropped about 21%, 15% and 13%, respectively, after an industry publication reported that prices in the sector had declined. Additionally, Caterpillar (CAT) was the Dow's biggest decliner Monday, sinking 5% to $57.90 after being downgraded to Sell at Goldman Sachs. INDEXES: The Dow fell 208.29, or 1.29%, to 15,885.22, the Nasdaq lost 72.69, or 1.58%, to 4,518.49, and the S&P 500 declined 29.82, or 1.56%, to 1,877.08.
15:03 EDTDYNPJM-linked energy generators crash after Supreme Court upholds 'demand response'
Shares of Dynegy (DYN) and select peers are trading lower after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and its so-called demand response, an industry practice that seeks to encourage lower energy usage. The rule, which pays customers for not using power, effectively boosts supply and increases pressure on prices in the PJM power grid, the nation's biggest merchant power market. Dynegy, Talen (TLN), Exelon (EXC) and FirstEnergy (FE) are the largest merchant generators in PJM, according to Bloomberg data. PRICE ACTION: Dynegy has fallen roughly 11.2% to $9.92. Exelon, NRG Energy (NRG), Talen and Calpine (CPN) have slipped 2.8%, 7.8%, 5.2%, and 7.7%, respectively, while energy savings firm EnerNOC (ENOC) jumped nearly 78% in the wake of the ruling.
