As the Keystone Pipeline remains stuck in regulatory limbo, oil companies are looking to construct new pipelines that would enable them to export oil from Canadian oil sands deposits, according to The New York Times. But the critical Northern Gateway pipeline, in particular, has been opposed by Native Canadian groups and the town of Kitimat, which is supposed to serve as the port terminal for the pipeline, the newspaper stated. Enbridge (ENB) is looking to build the Northern Gateway pipelines. Meanwhile, a Canadian pipeline proposed by TransCanada (TRP) has been opposed by environmentalists, the newspaper stated. Among the companies that have Canadian oil sands assets are Imperial Oil (IMO), ExxonMobil (XOM), Total (TOT), Chevron (CVX), Marathon (MRO), Statoil (STO), ConocoPhillips (COP), and Suncor (SU).

16:45 EDTXOMOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher from the opening bell onward despite housing starts data that was weaker than expected. Investors waited for the release of the FOMC minutes and saw what they had suspected; that the Fed was reinforcing its message that the December meeting is an option for the central bank to begin raising interest rates. The visibility on rates gave investors confidence, leading to a late-day rally that saw the averages close at their highs. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the minutes from the Fed's last FOMC meeting showed that most participants expect that rate hike conditions will be met by their December meeting. The Fed repeated its constant refrain, though, that the actual decision would depend on the implications for the medium-term outlook from recent economic data. Housing starts fell 11.0% to a 1.06M pace in October, weaker than the expected rate of 1.16M. Building permits, however, rose 4.1% to a 1.15M rate, versus an expected rise of 3.8%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Target (TGT) fell 4.3% to $69.78 after the retailer reported in-line quarterly sales and profits and narrowed the range of its fiscal year earnings view. Target, which guided for same-store sales in the new quarter to be up 1%-2%, added that it sees "indications of heavy inventory levels" at some competitors into the holiday season... Shares of Apple (AAPL) climbed 3.17% to $117.29 after Goldman Sachs added the stock to its Conviction Buy List, predicting that investors should begin to focus on the company's monetization and recurring revenue opportunities over the next year, which would be a boon to its valuation... Raymond James analyst Pavel Molchanov downgraded Exxon Mobil to Underperform, the firm's equivalent to a "Sell" rating, saying he expects a modest oil recovery in 2016 but that Exxon's limited leverage to oil prices will act as a hindrance during a recovery. Despite Molchanov predicting Exxon shares to be a source of funds for investors turning more constructive on oil in 2016, the stock rose about 1% to $80.74 today amid a rally in oil prices. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Fairchild (FCS), which jumped $1.52, or 8.5%, to $19.40 after agreeing to be acquired for $20 per share by ON Semiconductor (ON), whose stock fell 7.9% to $9.89 after the news. Also higher were Canadian Pacific (CP) and Norfolk Southern (NSC), with the two railway operators advancing a respective 5.8% and 6.35% after Canadian submitted a bid to acquire Norfolk, though the latter immediately criticized the offer as "low-premium." Additionally, ConAgra (CAG) gained 4% to $40.93 after announcing plans to separate into two independent public companies. Among the noteworthy losers was Qualcomm (QCOM), which dropped $4.98, or 9.4%, to $48.00 after disclosing that Korea's Fair Trade Commission alleged the company does not "properly negotiate" aspects of its licenses and may be violating Korean competition law. Also lower was Sprint (S), which fell 9.3%, to $3.99 after announcing a 50% discount for new customers switching from competing wireless carriers. GoPro (GPRO) declined 5.1% to $19.81 after research firm Piper Jaffray noted that the company has been offering discounts on its cameras, including featuring them on "flash sale" sites, and cut its price target on the stock to $15 per share. INDEXES: The Dow rose 247.66, or 1.42%, to 17,737.16, the Nasdaq gained 89.19, or 1.79%, to 5,075.20, and the S&P 500 advanced 33.14, or 1.62%, to 2,083.58.

07:43 EDTXOMExxon Mobil downgraded to Underperform on subpar oil leverage at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James downgraded Exxon Mobil to Underperform from Market Perform. Analyst Pavel Molchanov expects a modest oil recovery in 2016 and said Exxon Mobil's limited leverage to oil prices will act as a hindrance during a recovery. Molchanov expects Exxon shares to be a source of funds for investors turning more constructive on oil in 2016. The analyst said this is not a short-term trading call but a 6-12 month time horizon, which could prove wrong if oil spends the year below $50 territory.
