15:03 EDTEXCPJM-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.
12:17 EDTWPZOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday as oil prices resumed their slide, giving up some of the surge the commodity saw to close out last week. The stock market, which has been highly correlated with oil lately, continues to be led around by energy prices once again today. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was light with the Dallas Fed manufacturing survey the lone report of note. The survey came in at -34.6, below the revised prior reading of -21.6 and short of the consensus -14.5 forecast. WTI crude oil dropped about 5% to trade near $30.50 per barrel near midday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McDonald's (MCD) advanced a bit over 1% after the fast food giant reported better than expected earnings and comparable sales growth for the fourth quarter, powered by the launch of All Day Breakfast in the U.S. On the other side of the Dow was Caterpillar (CAT), which fell nearly 4% to lead the bluechip index on the down side after its stock was downgraded to Sell at Goldman Sachs... Twitter (TWTR) fell about 4% after CEO Jack Dorsey confirmed on Sunday night the departure of four company executives, leading research firm Stifel to downgrade the shares. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Tyco (TYC), which rallied 10.8% after it announced that it entered into a definitive merger agreement with Johnson Controls (JCI). Johnson shares fell 2% after the deal announcement. Also higher was Williams Partners (WPZ), which gained 7% after it lowered its estimate of its 2016 growth capital funding needs to $2B, 32% lower than its previous plans. Among the noteworthy losers was OncoMed (OMED), which fell 46% after the company said its Phase 2 ALPINE clinical trial showed futility on an interim analysis. Also lower were KapStone (KS), WestRock (WRK), and Packaging Corp (PKG), which dropped 20%, 13%, and 11%, respectively, after an industry publication reported that prices in the sector had declined. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 78.00, or 0.48%, to 16,015.51, the Nasdaq was down 23.34, or 0.51%, to 4,567.84, and the S&P 500 was down 11.89, or 0.62%, to 1,895.01.
