News Breaks

16:16 EDTBLK, KKD, JPM, LOW, ETN, YHOO, BCS, WPRT, CBE, FBOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher in spite of Facebook (FB) breaking its IPO pricing. Stock futures were higher throughout the premarket trading session as the market got ready to bounce from its two week tailspin. There was little reaction to the better than expected Chicago Fed National Activity Index but the futures action led to a higher open for the broader market. The averages began the day slightly higher but moved firmly into the green shortly after midmorning. The market then moved in a narrow range for most of the session, but with an upward trend, as the market finally broke its losing streak... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, the Chicago Fed National Activity Index rose to +0.11 for the month of April from -0.29 in March... COMPANY NEWS: Facebook shares fell below their $38 issue price in premarket trading and continued to slide as much as 13.7% before finding a level near $33. In its second day of trading the stock closed down $4.20, or 10.99%, at $34.03... Yahoo! (YHOO) agreed to sell half of its 40% stake in Chinese e-commerce group Alibaba for about $7.1B and laid out a joint agreement for a plan to dispose of the remainder of its stake over time. Yahoo did not give exact plans for what it will do with the proceeds, expected to be about $4.2B after taxes, but did increase its share repurchase authorization by $5B concurrently with the transaction... JP Morgan (JPM) slid close to another 3% as the company's CEO Jamie Dimon announced at an investor conference that the bank is suspending its share repurchase program for the time being as it works to strengthen its capitalization ahead of new regulations... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Cooper Industries (CBE), up $14.04, or 25.14%, to $69.88, after agreeing to be acquired by Eaton Corporation (ETN) in a cash and stock deal valued at $72.00 per share, and Krispy Kreme (KKD), up 61c, or 10.15%, to $6.62, following its report of better than expected earnings. Also higher were shares of Westport Innovations (WPRT), up $2.83, or 11.93%, to $26.56, as Craig-Hallum said in a note to investors that the firm sees more catalysts heading into Westport's analyst day later this week and continues to recommend the stock as the shift towards natural gas in trucking is hitting a tipping point. Noteworthy losers included Lowe's (LOW), down $2.88, or 10.11%, to $25.60, after its sales and profits beat estimates but its yearly earnings guidance came in below consensus, and BlackRock (BLK), down $4.18, or 2.43%, to $167.73, as Barclays (BCS) announced plans to sell its entire 19.6% stake in the alternative investment manager... INDICES: The Dow gained 135.10, or 1.09%, to 12,504.48; the Nasdaq rose 68.42, or 2.46%, to 2,847.21; and the S&P 500 added 20.77, or 1.60%, to 1,315.99.

06:30 EDTFBFacebook says reducing 'overly promotional' page posts in news feed
Facebook said on Friday that "Our goal with News Feed has always been to show people the things they want to see. That’s why we often look to people on Facebook to tell us how we can improve. As part of an ongoing survey we asked hundreds of thousands of people how they feel about the content in their News Feeds. People told us they wanted to see more stories from friends and Pages they care about, and less promotional content. What we discovered is that a lot of the content people see as too promotional is posts from Pages they like, rather than ads. This may seem counterintuitive but it actually makes sense: News Feed has controls for the number of ads a person sees and for the quality of those ads, but those same controls haven’t been as closely monitored for promotional Page posts. Now we’re bringing new volume and content controls for promotional posts, so people see more of what they want from Pages.... Beginning in January 2015, people will see less of this type of content in their News Feeds. This change will not increase the number of ads people see in their News Feeds. The idea is to increase the relevance and quality of the overall stories – including Page posts – people see in their News Feeds. This change is about giving people the best Facebook experience possible and being responsive to what they have told us. While Pages that post a lot of the content we mention above will see a significant decrease in distribution, the majority of Pages will not be impacted by this change." Reference Link
