15:10 EDTMTGMGIC Investment says beginning talks to modify existing reinsurance
MGIC, the principal subsidiary of MGIC Investment Corporation, said its preliminary assessment of the draft private mortgage insurer eligibility requirements released by FHFA for public input was that MGIC's Available Assets would be materially less than its Minimum Required Assets at both the projected effective date and two years thereafter and that we had alternatives to mitigate the shortfall. Using the factors and definitions in the Draft PMIERs, MGIC believes that its Available Assets, at December 31, 2014, would be approximately $5.3B and the Minimum Required Assets would be approximately $5.9B, resulting in a shortfall of approximately $600M. MGIC believes this shortfall would be reduced through operations so that at the end of the two-year transition period it would be approximately $300M. The shortfall projections at both dates include receiving full credit for MGIC's existing reinsurance, approximately $500M of credit at December 31, 2014, increasing to $600M of credit two years later. "However, we do not expect to receive full credit for our current reinsurance. As a result, we are beginning discussions with the reinsurance market to modify our existing reinsurance so that any reduction for reinsurance credit would be minimized," the company said.

11:16 EDTNOCAeroVironment rallies after better than expected results
Shares of AeroVironment (AVAV), which develops a portfolio of products and services for unmanned aircraft and efficient energy systems, are rallying after the company reported better than expected fourth quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, AeroVironment reported Q4 EPS of 35c and revenue of $73.5M, compared to analysts' consensus estimates of 22c and $69.62M, respectively. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The company forecast fiscal 2015 revenue of $250M-$270M, compared to consensus of $256.2M, along with gross profit margins of 34.5%-37.5%. The company noted that planned increases in research and development and business development investments for Tactical Missile Systems, Commercial UAS and Global Observer business areas in FY15 may largely offset operating profit in the current fiscal year. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, AeroVironment soared $4.49, or 14.5%, to $35.45 on nearly five times its average daily trading volume. Including today's advance, the stock is up more than 70% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the unmanned aircraft space include Lockheed Martin (LMT), General Dynamics (GD), and Northrop Grumman (NOC), though all of those are significantly larger than AeroVironment.

Northrop Grumman (NOC) and ATK (ATK) have completed static testing of the primary mirror backplane support structure, moving NASA's James Webb Space Telescope one step closer to its 2018 launch. The structure was delivered to Northrop Grumman's facilities in Redondo Beach, completing a path program milestone. Static testing demonstrates that the backplane has the structural integrity to withstand the forces and vibrations of launch, and is the final test prior to starting the integration of the backplane with the rest of the telescope.
