16:50 EDTGM, HLF, AAL, JBLU, UAL, DAL, RAD, FEYE, TM, HMC, F, SOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed in the second trading session of the year, with the Dow climbing, the Nasdaq falling, and the S&P 500 finishing virtually flat. Volume remained light, with snow in the northeast and the fractured holiday week perhaps keeping some market participants home. The averages traded in a modest range for much of the session, with commentary from some Fed members, including outgoing chairman Ben Bernanke, moving the markets in the final hour of trade. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the New York ISM fell to 63.8 in December from a prior reading of 69.5. Crude oil inventories fell by more than projected last week, drawing down by about 7M barrels. COMPANY NEWS: Automakers released their U.S. sales data for December, and among the notable reporters was General Motors (GM), which reported sales fell by over 6% during the month compared to last year and shares of the car-maker fell $1.38, or 3.37%, to $39.57 following the announcement. Ford (F) reported December sales grew by almost 2%, while Japanese manufacturers Honda (HMC) reported sales that rose 1.9% and Toyota (TM) saw sales drop 1.7%. Shares of computer-security firm FireEye (FEYE) gained $15.89, or 38.63%, to $57.02 after the company announced last night that it had bought privately held cybersecurity firm Mandiant in a deal valued at $1 billion. FireEye also raised its revenue outlook and analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and JPMorgan increased their price targets on the stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Rite Aid (RAD), up 43c, or 8.53%, to $5.47 after the company reported December same-store sales that rose 2.9%, with analysts at Deutsche Bank noting that this is the pharmacy's best growth in 21 months. Also higher was Delta (DAL), up $1.53, or 5.52%, to $29.23 after reporting that its Passenger Revenue per Available Seat Mile, or PRASM, was up 10% in December compared to the prior year. Delta's airline peers, including United Continental (UAL), up $2.22, or 5.88%, to $39.95, JetBlue (JBLU), up 45c, or 5.23%, to $9.05, and American Airlines (AAL), up $1.18, or 4.65%, to $26.54 also advanced. Among the noteworthy losers was Herbalife (HLF), down $2.74, or 3.43%, to $77.09 after the Federal Trade Commission announced it will hold a press conference next Tuesday to announce an initiative against "deceptive advertising of weight-loss products," though the FTC did not name the products or manufacturers it will target. Also lower was Sprint (S), down 46c, or 4.42%, to $9.94 after the stock was cut to Sell from Hold at Stifel, which said it is skeptical of the company's near-term M&A prospects. INDEXES: The Dow was up 28.64, or 0.17%, to 16,469.99; the S&P 500 was down 0.61, or 0.03%, to 1,831.37; the Nasdaq was down 11.16, or 0.27%, to 4,131.91.

06:08 EDTDALAir France, Delta, Alitalia look to resolve EC investigation
The European Commission has invited interested third parties to comment on commitments proposed by Air France (AFLYY), Alitalia and Delta (DAL) to address concerns that their transatlantic cooperation may harm competition for premium passengers on the Paris-New York route and for all passengers on the Amsterdam-New York and Rome-New York routes, in breach of EU antitrust rules. The three airlines have offered to make landing and take-off slots available at both ends of the Amsterdam-New York and Rome-New York routes to facilitate the market entry of competitors. They are also prepared to enter into agreements which would enable competitors to offer tickets on their flights and facilitate access to connecting traffic, as well as to provide access to their frequent flyer programs on all three routes. If the market test confirms that the proposed commitments remedy the competition concerns, the Commission may make them legally binding on the companies. At this stage, the Commission has concerns that the extensive cooperation between Air France/KLM, Alitalia and Delta in the framework of the Skyteam alliance, involving profit-sharing and the joint management of schedules, pricing and capacity, may result in higher prices on the following routes: Paris-New York, Amsterdam-New York and Rome-New York. The parties have jointly offered a set of commitments, to alleviate the Commission's concerns. The commitments are primarily aimed at enabling competing airlines to start operating or extend existing operations on the affected routes by lowering barriers to entry or expansion. The airlines offered to make available landing and take-off slots at Amsterdam, Rome and/or New York John F. Kennedy/Newark Liberty airports on the Amsterdam-New York and Rome-New York routes. The companies committed to enter into fare combinability and special prorate agreements with competitors who start operating new non-stop services or increase their non-stop services on the three routes. For Paris-New York, this also applies to existing non-stop competitors on the route.
