12:08 EDTABXOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday in the first trading day of a week that will be light on domestic economic data but heavy on earnings reports. Investors will be receiving profit reports from about 25% of the companies on the S&P 500 this week, making this the highest volume earnings week of this season. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major data was released. In Europe, Greece reopened its banks three weeks after closing as the country worked out another bailout agreement. The country announced it has started the process of paying off its creditors, including the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund, with a bridge loan it just received. COMPANY NEWS: Lockheed Martin (LMT) agreed to buy the Sikorsky Aircraft business from United Technologies (UTX) for $9B, noting the price is "effectively reduced" to $7.1B after taking into account tax benefits resulting from the transaction. Shares of Lockheed, which also reported better than expected second quarter results and increased its fiscal year guidance, gained nearly 2% after the Sikorsky announcement and saying it will conduct a strategic review of its government IT infrastructure services business and technical services business... Shares of Morgan Stanley (MS) shares were little changed near noon after the bank reported earnings and revenue, excluding certain adjustments, that topped analysts' consensus forecasts... SunEdison (SUNE) announced a deal to acquire Vivint Solar (VSLR) for approximately $2.2B, payable in a combination of cash, shares of SunEdison common stock and SunEdison convertible notes. In connection with the proposed acquisition of Vivint Solar, SunEdison has entered into a definitive purchase agreement with a subsidiary of TerraForm Power (TERP) which, concurrently with the completion of SunEdison's acquisition of Vivint, will acquire Vivint Solar's rooftop solar portfolio, consisting of 523 MW expected to be installed by year-end 2015, for $922M in cash. Shares of Vivint rose 44% following the announcement, while SunEdison's stock gained 4% and TerraForm dropped 3%. Fellow residential solar installer SolarCity (SCTY), which is backed by Tesla's (TSLA) Elon Musk, rose 7% following the deal in the space. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exelixis (EXEL), which rallied 43% after the company reported that a study of cabozantinib in metastatic renal cell carcinoma met its primary endpoint of significant improvement in progression-free survival. The shares were indicated to rise even more in early pre-market trading, but lost some of their gains after Bristol-Myers (BMY) announced that its Opdivo study was stopped early after showing superior overall survival in a Phase 3 study of previously treated patients with advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Bristol-Myers rose a bit less than 1% to trade near $70 per share after its own announcement. Also higher was PayPal (PYPL), which gained more than 5.5% in its first day of trading after being spun out of eBay (EBAY). Meanwhile, eBay shares rose over 2%. Cal-Maine Foods (CALM) dropped 8% after posting lower than expected sales and profits in its fourth quarter and warning that while it should have an adequate supply of its primary feed ingredients, the company expects that prices will be "volatile" in the year ahead. Also lower were shares of several gold miners, including Barrick Gold (ABX) and Newmont Mining (NEM), which each fell about 11%, as gold prices declined about 2% near midday. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 31.66, or 0.18%, to 18,118.11, the Nasdaq was up 9.81, or 0.19%, to 5,219.96, and the S&P 500 was up 2.82, or 0.13%, to 2,129.46.
07:09 EDTIAGIAMGOLD provides update on Boto Project in Senegal
IAMGOLD Corporation announced additional drilling results from its 100% owned Boto Gold Project in eastern Senegal, West Africa. The company is reporting assay results from the final 26 infill diamond drill holes totaling 7,782 metres out of the 12,416 metres completed during the 2015 delineation drilling program. The Boto project comprises 236 square kilometres of exploration licenses located in eastern Senegal along the Senegal-Mali border. The geological setting of the project area is similar to the prolific Sadiola and Loulo gold districts in adjacent Mali, being underlain by highly prospective, Birimian-aged metasedimentary, volcanic and intrusive rocks along a seven kilometre strike length of the Senegal-Mali Shear Zone.The project hosts an indicated resource of 22.8 million tonnes averaging 1.7 grams of gold per tonne for 1.23 million ounces and an inferred resource of 10.96 million tonnes averaging 1.8 grams of gold per tonne for 635,000 ounces. A significant percentage of the total resources are derived from the newly discovered Malikoundi deposit which is the largest deposit discovered to date on the property. The company has completed its planned 50x50 metre infill delineation drilling campaign initiated in 2014 with the completion of the 12,416 metres of diamond drilling in 2015 and the final assay results are being incorporated into a revised resource model which will allow completion of an updated resource estimate anticipated in the third quarter. In addition, metallurgical composite samples were prepared from selected core samples and have been forwarded to Canada for further metallurgical test work in the third quarter 2015.

11:37 EDTJCPJ.C. Penney rises after Starboard CEO names Macy's 'best idea'
Shares of department store operator Macy's (M) are sharply higher in morning trading after Starboard Value CEO and CIO Jeff Smith revealed his firm has taken a stake in the company and believes its stock could be worth $125 per share.

Penney (JCP), which is also a department store operator with real estate assets, is up 1.7% at $9.16. Another peer, Sears (SHLD), is down 2.8% at $23.17, but that is well off its session low of $22.66.

11:14 EDTRGCAMC deal signals cinema M&A back on track, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst James Marsh said AMC Entertainment's (AMC) just announced acquisition of privately held Starplex signals that M&A is "back on track" in the cinema space after being paused while the DOJ investigates film "clearances" and after the U.S. blocked a deal in the industry. Marsh also sees the deal as an opportunity for IMAX (IMAX), noting that Starplex doesn't use IMAX screens yet but AMC is the largest North American operator of its enhanced screens.
