12:12 EDTPRGOEndo spike attributed to takeover speculation
The midday spike in shares of Endo International (ENDP) is being attributed to takeover speculation. Conjecture has Perrigo (PRGO) interested in a potential acquisition of Endo, trading sources tell The Fly. Shares of Endo are up $1.26 to $59.10 in midday trading. The Fly, in fulfilling its mission of explaining stock movement, often comes across the many unconfirmed rumors being passed through trading desks and social media platforms. On the occasion that rumors or speculation appear on The Fly's news feed, it should be viewed not as giving credence to the conjecture, rather as simply highlighting its impact on the stock prices of the companies involved.

15:03 EDTNRG, FEPJM-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.
