06:03 EDTECAEncana agrees to sell Haynesville assets for $850M
Encana announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Encana Oil & Gas, has reached an agreement to sell its Haynesville natural gas assets, located in northern Louisiana, to GEP Haynesville, a joint venture formed by GeoSouthern Haynesville, LP and funds managed by GSO Capital Partners LP. Total cash consideration to Encana under the transaction is $850M. In addition, through the transfer of current and future obligations, Encana will reduce its gathering and midstream commitments, which will be substantially complete through 2020, by approximately $480M on an undiscounted basis. Further, Encana will transport and market GeoSouthern's Haynesville production on a fee for service basis for the next five years. Encana will use the total cash consideration to reduce its net debt, further strengthening its balance sheet. Consistent with its strategy, Encana remains focused on growing high margin production. Over 80% of 2015 capital will be invested in the company's four most strategic assets in the Permian, Eagle Ford, Duvernay and Montney. During the first half of 2015, Encana's Haynesville assets produced an average 217 mmcf/d, contributed approximately 9% to companywide production and less than 2.5% to Encana's first half operating cash flow, excluding hedges. The sale of Encana's Haynesville assets is subject to satisfaction of normal closing conditions, as well as regulatory approvals and post-closing adjustments, and is expected to close in Q4 with an effective date of January 1.

16:58 EDTEOGOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
The market opened deep in negative territory after a tumultuous trading session in China and a softer than expected U.S. consumer prices report. Sellers continued to push the averages lower throughout the morning, with the Dow tacking on losses of more than 200 points as investors waited for the release of the Fed minutes. The market rallied following an early leak of the minutes, which suggested officials are getting closer to raising rates but appear to be waiting for additional data. Despite the afternoon rally, the averages sold off once again heading into the close, leaving all three indices in the negatives for Wednesday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the July consumer price index edged up 0.1% against expectations for 0.2% reading. The core reading, which excludes food and energy, also came in at 0.1% versus consensus estimates of 0.2%. There were no revisions to the 0.3% headline gain in June or the 0.2% growth in the ex-food and energy component. Component gains were muted across the board, with Energy prices up just 0.1% in July. Meanwhile, FOMC minutes showed no definitive indication of a September rate hike. Most committee members "judged that the conditions for policy firming had not yet been achieved, but they noted that conditions were approaching that point." Other members, however, believed that the inflation outlook "might not soon meet one of the conditions... for initiating a firming of policy." COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Dot Hill Systems (HILL) soared $4.50, or 86.87%, to $9.68 after Seagate Technology (STX) agreed to acquire the company for $9.75 per share, noting that it expects the deal to be non-GAAP EPS accretive in fiscal 2016. Shares of the hard drive giant fell 5.03% to $49.43 for the session... Lowe's (LOW) shares saw gains of $1.34, or 1.84%, to $74.36 following the company's earnings report this morning, while Target (TGT) rose $59c, or 0.73%, to $80.89 after beating on both top and bottom lines. On a subsequent conference call, Target executives forecast a "choppy" competitive environment in Q3, though they added that the company "will not get beat" on promotions in Q4. Separately, American Eagle (AEO) lost 7.42% to $16.92 after its quarterly numbers. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Palatin (PTN) and Apricus (APRI), showing respective advances of 3.19% and 7.89% after the FDA approved Sprout's female sexual dysfunction drug Addyi, with the agency remarking that it "continues to encourage drug development in this area." Note that both Palatin and Apricus are developing their own treatments in the space, and Apricus reaffirmed this morning its intent to seek a global partner as it advances its Femprox sexual dysfunction medication. Also higher was Yum! Brands (YUM), which gained $1.90, or 2.26%, to $86.10 after appointing a new CEO of its China division, adding that its same-store sales in the region "have turned significantly positive." Among the noteworthy losers was Rayonier Advanced Materials (RYAM), plunging $6.01, or 44.09%, to $7.62 after disclosing a legal battle with its customer Eastman Chemical (EMN) over "meet or release" contract stipulations which may impact Eastman's purchase obligations. Also lower was Caesarstone (CSTE), which lost $3.43, or 7.14%, to $44.61 after short-selling hedge fund Spruce Point said the stock has up to 75% downside due to heightened raw material costs and competitive concerns, among other factors. Separately, EOG Resources (EOG), Baytex Energy (BTE), and Vanguard Natural (VNR) saw respective losses of 4.15%, 15.53%, and 13.83% after WTI crude fell 5.02% for the session. INDEXES: The Dow declined 162.61, or 0.93%, to 17,348.73, the Nasdaq fell 40.30, or 0.80%, to 5,019.05, and the S&P 500 lost 17.31, or 0.83%, to 2,079.61.
