17:17 EDTYHOOSpringOwl: Yahoo spending claims came from 'very reputable' source, BI says
In a Business Insider interview published Wednesday, SpringOwl managing director Eric Jackson said, "We stand by all our [Yahoo] spending numbers previously presented, including the several others we mentioned... like Davos and The Met Ball." Jackson's comments were in response to Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer rejecting allegations of lavish spending as "gross mischaracterizations and untruths," but Jackson revealed to Business Insider that SpringOwl's figures for the $7M Yahoo holiday party came from a "very reputable contact." When calculating the $450M the company allegedly spent on free food for employees, Jackson said he simply contacted Yahoo's catering company and applied its rates to Yahoo's workforce. Reference Link
16:40 EDTYHOOOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
Stocks began the session in positive territory but were unable to hold their early gains. Following larger than expected builds in energy inventories, oil moved lower, taking equities with it. By the noon hour oil prices recovered and moved higher once again, helping to lift equities. While oil prices continued their advance and moved up more than 7%, stocks lagged, especially the Nasdaq, which was down as much as 1.5% this afternoon. That changed in the last hours of trading, which saw the Dow spurt higher and the Nasdaq recover most of its losses heading into another heavy dose of corporate earnings reports after the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., ADP estimated that private payrolls grew by 205,000 jobs in January, topping the consensus forecast for 190,000 job additions. Markit's services PMI came in at 53.2, versus the consensus 53.7 forecast. The Institute for Supply Management's non-manufacturing index came in at 53.5 for January, down from 55.3 in the previous month and below the 55.1 reading forecast by analysts. In Asia, the Caixin services PMI for China climbed to 52.4 in January from 50.2 in December, while Japan's services PMI rose to 52.4 from 51.5 in the prior month. Additionally, China's National Development and Reform Commission set its economic growth projection range for this year at 6.5%-7%, noting that attempts to curb overcapacity will increase unemployment in provinces with high output of steel and coal. In Europe, Markit's composite purchasing managers index for January declined to 53.6 from 54.3 in December. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) declined 4.75% to $27.68 after the embattled Internet company reported fourth quarter results and announced plans to simplify its product portfolio and reduce its workforce by roughly 15%. Maynard Webb, Yahoo's chairman, said the board is committed to its turnaround efforts and supportive of management's plan, but also believes that exploring additional strategic alternatives is in the best interest of its shareholders... Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) fell 2.89% to $461.92 after reporting lower than expected revenue and a 14% plunge in same-store sales for the quarter. Adding to the negative headlines, the restaurant operator also disclosed a subpoena broadening the scope of a criminal investigation that was previously limited to a single Chipotle location in California. Also punished by food safety worries were shares of Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD), which slid 4.24% to $143.64 after one of its restaurants was named a suspected source of new norovirus-like cases in suburban Kansas City, though the company disputed a link between its location and the illnesses. The stock continued to move lower in after-hours trading following the company's earnings report and lower than expected guidance... Merck (MRK) was one of the worst performers on the Dow, dipping to as low as $48.58 before ending the day down 0.7% at $50.04 after its earnings narrowly topped estimates but guidance for the new year fell short of expectations. Among other large cap names reporting earnings this morning, Comcast (CMCSA) rose 5.95% following its report, while General Motors (GM) slid 2.43%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Autodesk (ADSK), which rallied 8% to $49.56 after announcing a restructuring plan that will see its workforce cut by roughly 10%. Also higher was Angie's List (ANGI), which jumped 13.53% to $9.48 after the New York Post reported that InterActiveCorp (IAC) is preparing a "big run" to acquire the company. In addition, Syngenta (SYT) rose 2% to $80.21 after receiving a $43B-plus takeover offer from ChemChina. Among the noteworthy losers was Lowe's (LOW), which fell 6.2% to $67.42 after agreeing to acquire Canada's RONA in a deal valued at $2.3B. Also lower was Barnes & Noble (BKS), which declined 9.6% to $7.32 after mall operator General Growth (GGP) said during a conference call that Amazon (AMZN) plans to open 300-400 physical bookstores. After the closing bell, General Growth CEO Sandeep Mathrani indicated that his previous statement "was not intended to represent Amazon's plans." Meanwhile, Marathon Petroleum (MPC), Mondelez (MDLZ) and Match Group (MTCH) lost 7.6%, 6.5% and 12.6%, respectively, following their quarterly reports. INDEXES: The Dow rose 183.12, or 1.13%, to 16,336.66, the Nasdaq fell 12.71, or 0.28%, to 4,504.24, and the S&P 500 advanced 9.50, or 0.5%, to 1,912.53.
