Canaccord believes Pioneer Natural (PXD) would be the most likely large cap takeover candidate in the E&P space, but said there is no way a major could make it an immediately accretive asset. The firm also thinks Callon Petroleum (CPE) would be the most likely small to mid-cap acquisition candidate given its high quality core Midland acreage and relatively cheap valuation.

12:17 EDTAPAOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday following a morning of lackluster trading, which may be due to lower volume on account of the observance of Veteran's Day. There were four initial public offerings that priced and each opened above their offering; a better reflection of the syndicate market than several weeks ago when deals could not be completed. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was quiet with no major announcements. U.S. bond markets are closed in observance of Veteran's Day. In China, industrial output rose 5.6% in October, matching March's reading as the weakest since 2008. Retail sales climbed 11% last month, beating expectations. COMPANY NEWS: In another sign of China's transition from a purely industrial economy to one driven more by consumption, Alibaba Group (BABA)reported blockbuster sales for the 11.11 shopping festival, better known as "Singles' Day." By the end of Wednesday in China, gross merchandise volume on Alibaba's platforms hit $14.3B, far exceeding last year's 24-hour total of $9.3B, but shares of the Chinese e-commerce giant trading in New York slid 2%... Shares of Macy's (M) plunged over 13.5% and its peers followed it lower after the department store operator cut its outlook for fiscal year 2015 after reporting third quarter revenue that missed analysts' estimates. Macy's also said it will not be pursuing the formation of a real estate investment trust. Conversely, J.C. Penney (JCP) reported stronger than expected same-store sale growth and previewed that its soon-to-be reported earnings and gross margin performance in the third quarter exceeded its expectations, but the stock was caught in Macy's downdraft, falling about 2.5%... The boards of Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD) and SABMiller (SBMRY) announced that they have reached agreement on the terms of a combination deal worth $107B. In relation to their deal, Molson Coors (TAP) entered into a definitive agreement to purchase SABMiller's (SBMRY) 58% stake in MillerCoors, the joint venture formed in the United States in 2008, in a transaction valued at $12B. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Atmel (ATML), which rallied 4% after Dialog Semiconductor (DLGNF) said that it continues to "strongly" support its agreement to acquire Atmel. Also higher was Amazon (AMZN), which gained 2% after an analyst at Morgan Stanley raised his price target on the company's stock to $800 from $750M, citing the growing AWS opportunity. Among the noteworthy losers was Horizon Pharma (HZNP), which fell over 16% after Express Scripts (ESRX) cut ties with specialty pharmacy Linden Care, which is used by Horizon and Insys Therapeutics (INSY), which also dropped 9%. Also lower was SunEdison (SUNE), which lost another 14.5%, adding more losses to yesterday's post-earnings slide after UBS cut its price target on the company's shares to $6 from $9. In addition, Anadarko (APC) and Apache (APA) fell about 3.5% and 6%, respectively, after Anadarko confirmed that it sent a takeover proposal to Apache, which it later withdrew. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 3.87, or 0.02%, to 17,762.08, the Nasdaq was up 14.42, or 0.28%, to 5,097.66, and the S&P 500 was up 0.78, or 0.04%, to 2,082.50.
