16:27 EDTTSLAOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory and saw the Nasdaq and S&P 500 briefly hit new all-time highs in the process. By lunch time the Nasdaq and S&P crossed into negative ground while the Dow continued to struggle. The market limped into the close, digesting some of its recent gains, as investors prepared for the next round of earnings reports due out after the close, to be headlined by Apple (AAPL). ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Markit's flash services PMI fell 1.4 points to 57.8 in April, versus the consensus forecast for a 59.5 reading. The Dallas Fed's manufacturing index remained weak at -16.0 in April, versus the consensus forecast for a -12.0 reading. In Europe, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy lifted his nation's GDP forecast to 2.9% from 2.4% for 2015. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Deutsche Bank (DB) trading in New York dropped $1.65, or 4.82%, to $32.61 after the bank, along with publishing its quarterly results, unveiled a major strategic overhaul. The bank plans to cut annual costs by another EUR3.5B, reduce the size of its securities business and lower its Postbank holdings next year to sub-50% from 94% by selling shares on the market before reducing its stake to zero in the medium term... Applied Materials (AMAT) and Tokyo Electron announced that they have agreed to terminate their merger agreement after the U.S. Department of Justice advised the parties that the coordinated remedy proposal submitted to all regulators would not be sufficient to replace the competition lost from the merger, leading the companies to determined that there is "no realistic prospect for the completion of the merger." Applied Materials also announced that its board has approved a new share repurchase program authorizing up to $3B in repurchases over the next three years beginning in Q3, but its shares fell $1.83, or 8.42%, to $19.97 following the news. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was iGATE (IGTE), which rose $1.54, or 3.36%, to $47.39 after the company entered into a definitive merger agreement under which Capgemini will acquire IGATE for a cash consideration of $48 per share in a transaction will amount to $4B. Also higher was Tesla Motors (TSLA), which gained $13.04, or 5.97%, to $231.47 after Deutsche Bank analyst Rod Lache wrote in a note to investors that the company's soon to be unveiled electricity storage products may boost the company's results more than the Street expects. Among the noteworthy losers was Celladon (CLDN), which plunged $11.04, or 80.7%, to $2.64 and was downgraded by Street research firms after reporting that its phase 2b trial evaluating a single, one-time, intracoronary infusion of the cardiovascular gene therapy agent Mydicar did not meet its primary and secondary endpoints. Also lower were shares of Akorn (AKRX), which fell $12.27, or 22.21%, to $42.97 after the drugmaker announced late Friday that it will need to further restate its previously issued financial statements for 2014.

10:12 EDTTSLAFly Watch: Analyst says upcoming Tesla storage product could beat expectations
Tesla's (TSLA) electricity storage products may boost the company's results more than the Street expects, Deutsche Bank analyst Rod Lache wrote in a note to investors earlier today. The product is due to be unveiled on Thursday night. WHAT'S NEW: Tesla's electricity storage products could generate earnings per share of $5 in 2020, translating to a value of $100 per share, Lache stated. Utilities would benefit from the product because they experience varied levels of electricity demand and cope with this situation by keeping 7% of their capacity off-line, the analyst wrote. Residential solar energy has become economically viable because consumers sell excess electricity to utilities, however, many experts say that there is a good chance that consumers will not be able to sell back electricity to utilities in the future, the analyst stated. Tesla's storage product would give the solar sector a way to minimize this risk, according to Lache, who kept a $245 price target and Buy rating on the shares of Tesla. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On April 20, JPMorgan cut its price target on Tesla to $165 from $175. The firm lowered its earnings estimates for the company to reflect adverse currency moves, higher operating costs and a slower than expected ramp of the company's Model X vehicle. It kept an Underweight, which is the equivalent of a sell rating, on the shares. PRICE ACTION In early trading, Tesla rose 6% to trade near $232 per share.

13:44 EDTGNCVitamin Shoppe jumps after Carlson discloses 5% stake
The shares of Vitamin Shoppe (VSI) are climbing after asset management firm Carlson Capital revealed that it had obtained a 5.34% stake in the company and said that it had held talks with the retailer of natural treatments, supplements and vitamins. WHAT'S NEW: Carlson disclosed its stake in the company in an SEC filing and said that it had held talks with the company's board about a number of matters, including the company’s business, management and strategic alternatives and direction. Carlson said it would continue to hold talks with the company, and others, about these issues. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Vitamin Shoppe reported last October that it had spoken to investment banks about retaining a financial adviser, Reuters reported at the time. The retailer had come under pressure to consider selling the company, added the news service. In February, New York's attorney general accused a Vitamin Shoppe competitor, GNC (GNC) of selling products whose content did not match their labels. Vitamin Shoppe's CEO said that, despite the fact that it was not targeted by the attorney general, it saw a slight impact on its sales from the news, according to trade website NUTRA ingredients-usa.com. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Vitamin Shoppe jumped 10.7% to $43.12, while GNC gained 2.8% to $47.25.
