The NAHB Housing Market Index had a 20 reading, beating expectations of 18. The DOE report on energy inventories showed that crude inventories dropped by 1.06M barrels, versus the consensus of a 1.20M draw. Gasoline inventories built by 992K barrels, versus the forecast of a 1.00M barrel draw. From Europe, the European Central Bank was believed to have bought Spanish and Italian bonds, though yields on both continue to be very high despite the intervention. Also, in Greece, the country's new Prime Minister passed his first test, winning a confidence vote. In Asia, Japan's central bank lowered its assessment of its economy and kept its key interest rate at virtually zero... MARKET NEWS: An announcement from Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) and Enbridge (ENB) that they would seek regulatory permission to reverse the direction of crude oil flows on the Seaway pipeline sent oil prices higher and the share prices of refiners lower... Target (TGT) reported Q3 adjusted EPS of 87c, soundly beating analyst estimates. Dell (DELL) reported Q3 earnings above estimates, but revenue fell below expectations as the company gave up “low-value” PC opportunities to preserve margins. Among others reporting, winners included Autodesk (ADSK) and Tyco (TYC); losers included Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) and Agilent (A)... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Tessera Technologies (TSRA), following Samsung Electronics exercising its renewal option in a license agreement with the company, and Pacific Ethanol (PEIX), after the company announced that it has retired in full its $35M senior convertible notes. Noteworthy losers included Zoom Technologies (ZOOM), after its Q3 revenue missed estimates and the company cut its FY11 revenue view, and Unilife (UNIS), which priced a 8.25M share secondary offering at $4.35... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 77.91, or 0.64%, to 12,018.25; the Nasdaq was down 16.23, or 0.60%, to 2,669.97; and the S&P 500 was down 7.65, or 0.61%, to 1,250.16.

18:13 EDTTGTMacy's considered, rejected sale/lease-backs in past, WSJ says
Macy's (M) executives have considered sale/lease-backs "over the years" and have come to negative conclusions, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the company. The report comes in the wake of Starboard Value pressuring Macy's to spin off its real estate, and sources said the activist investor sees several options, including a REIT, a Hudson’s Bay’s-style real estate partnership, a sale/lease-back, or borrowing money against the properties. Separately, a source said Target (T) is still reluctant to relinquish control over its real estate. Reference Link

06:32 EDTEPDGenesis Energy to acquire Enterprise offshore pipeline and services business
Genesis Energy (GEL) announced that it has entered into a purchase and sale agreement with an affiliate of Enterprise Products (EPD) to acquire the offshore pipeline and services business of Enterprise and its affiliates for approximately $1.5B. All closing conditions, other than those that are to be satisfied at the closing of the acquisition, have been satisfied or waived. The acquisition is expected to close in July 2015. The Enterprise offshore business assets include approximately 2,350 miles of offshore crude oil and natural gas pipelines and six offshore hub platforms, including a 36% interest in the Poseidon Oil Pipeline System, a 50% interest in the Southeast Keathley Canyon Oil Pipeline System and a 50% interest in the Cameron Highway Oil Pipeline System. The Enterprise offshore business assets will complement and substantially expand our existing offshore pipelines segment, which is primarily comprised of our interests in three oil pipelines—Poseidon, SEKCO, and CHOPS. The Enterprise offshore business generates a substantial majority of its cash flow under long-term, fee-based contracts with high-quality customers and no direct exposure to commodity prices. Genesis Energy expects that the shippers on the crude oil pipelines in the Gulf of Mexico, which are mostly integrated and large independent energy companies, will continue to explore for and develop capital intensive, large-reservoir, and long-lived properties throughout the Gulf of Mexico even in the current lower commodity price environment. Genesis Energy believes that the continued exploration and development in the Gulf of Mexico combined with increased footprint after the acquisition of the Enterprise offshore business will provide the company with additional opportunities to develop organic growth projects in the offshore pipeline segment.
