10:02 EDTLMTLockheed Martin tests design changes for Orion fairing separation system
Lockheed Martin said its engineers have successfully completed testing of design changes made to the NASA Orion spacecraft's fairing separation system. These changes resulted from data collected during Orion's first test flight on December 5, 2014. The separation took about three seconds and the design changes tested were: New push-off springs that push on the fairing for a longer period of time to provide increased safety and reliability. As part of an ongoing mass reduction effort, the team used four crew module structural attachments instead of six. Star trackers, or cameras that provide positioning from the stars, are used for navigation on the spacecraft. The fairing separation system pulls off the star tracker covers which prevent contamination before launch, and this process was tested for the first time.

09:02 EDTRTIAlcoa completes acquisition of RTI International
Alcoa (AA) announced that it has completed the acquisition of RTI International Metals (RTI). The merger, announced on March 9, became effective today. Under the terms of the merger agreement, each share of RTI common stock has been converted into the right to receive 2.8315 shares of Alcoa common stock, plus an amount of cash in lieu of fractional shares of Alcoa common stock. Alcoa expects RTI to contribute $1.2 billion in revenue in 2019, up from $794 million that RTI generated in 2014, with 65 percent of revenues supported by contracts over the next five years. RTI’s profitability is expected to reach 25 percent EBITDA margin in 2019. Contracts that underpin RTI’s growth include the recently announced contract with Airbus for finished titanium structural supply parts for the new A350-1000 aircraft program. Under the agreement, Alcoa will supply titanium parts for the fuselage, among other components. Alcoa expects global aerospace sales growth of 8 to 9 percent in 2015. Projections for 2016 and 2017 sales growth have nearly doubled to 8 and 13 percent, from 4 to 5 percent and 6 percent, respectively, showing the ongoing strength of the sector. Eighty percent of RTI’s revenues in 2014 were from the aerospace and defense industries. With RTI, Alcoa’s 2014 pro forma aerospace revenue increases by 13 percent to $5.6 billion. RTI is being integrated as a standalone business unit into Alcoa’s downstream Engineered Products and Solutions segment.

12:32 EDTBAOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday as slides in a number of big name tech stocks following their earnings reports dominated the news flow and largely dictated the market's direction. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA home price index rose 0.4% to 222.8 in May, as expected. Existing home sales rose 3.2% to a 5.49M rate in June, better than the 0.9% increase that was expected. In Europe, the European Central Bank reportedly raised the cap on Greece's Emergency Liquidity Assistance by EUR900M to EUR90.4B, according to Bloomberg. COMPANY NEWS: The tech sector has been weak, headlined of course by a 5% pullback in shares of Apple (AAPL) after iPhone shipments in the just completed quarter and the company's sales forecast for the new quarter missed estimates. Adding to the negative tone in tech stocks, and contributing further to the decline in the Nasdaq, was the 3% drop seen in Microsoft (MSFT) shares after its quarterly report as well as Yahoo's (YHOO) 1% decline after its revenue outlook missed the consensus forecast... Shares of Boeing (BA) and Coca-Cola (KO) fared better than Dow peer Apple after each reported better than expected sales and profits, though neither stock was moving far from where they closed yesterday's trading. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Thoratec (THOR), which rose 10% after the company agreed to be acquired by St. Jude Medical (STJ) for $3.4 billion in cash, or $63.50 per share. St. Jude shares advanced fractionally after the deal, which had been foreshadowed by media reports yesterday, was announced. Also higher following their earnings reports were Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), which gained 10%, Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which advanced 8% and Whirlpool (WHR), which was up 6%. Among the noteworthy losers were a number of suppliers to Apple that declined in tandem with the tech giant after it reported a sequential drop in iPhone sales. Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), Cirrus Logic (CRUS), Qorvo (QRVO) and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) were among the many semiconductor stocks that slid following Apple's report. Also sharply lower was antibody-based therapeutics maker XOMA (XOMA), which plunged more than 73% and was downgraded to Neutral at Piper Jaffray after a Phase III trial of its gevokizumab drug in patients with Behcet's disease uveitis did not meet its primary endpoint. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 82.22, or 0.46%, to 17,837.07, the Nasdaq was down 42.68, or 0.82%, to 5,165.44, and the S&P 500 was down 6.93, or 0.33%, to 2,112.28.

12:08 EDTLMTOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday in the first trading day of a week that will be light on domestic economic data but heavy on earnings reports. Investors will be receiving profit reports from about 25% of the companies on the S&P 500 this week, making this the highest volume earnings week of this season. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major data was released. In Europe, Greece reopened its banks three weeks after closing as the country worked out another bailout agreement. The country announced it has started the process of paying off its creditors, including the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund, with a bridge loan it just received. COMPANY NEWS: Lockheed Martin (LMT) agreed to buy the Sikorsky Aircraft business from United Technologies (UTX) for $9B, noting the price is "effectively reduced" to $7.1B after taking into account tax benefits resulting from the transaction. Shares of Lockheed, which also reported better than expected second quarter results and increased its fiscal year guidance, gained nearly 2% after the Sikorsky announcement and saying it will conduct a strategic review of its government IT infrastructure services business and technical services business... Shares of Morgan Stanley (MS) shares were little changed near noon after the bank reported earnings and revenue, excluding certain adjustments, that topped analysts' consensus forecasts... SunEdison (SUNE) announced a deal to acquire Vivint Solar (VSLR) for approximately $2.2B, payable in a combination of cash, shares of SunEdison common stock and SunEdison convertible notes. In connection with the proposed acquisition of Vivint Solar, SunEdison has entered into a definitive purchase agreement with a subsidiary of TerraForm Power (TERP) which, concurrently with the completion of SunEdison's acquisition of Vivint, will acquire Vivint Solar's rooftop solar portfolio, consisting of 523 MW expected to be installed by year-end 2015, for $922M in cash. Shares of Vivint rose 44% following the announcement, while SunEdison's stock gained 4% and TerraForm dropped 3%. Fellow residential solar installer SolarCity (SCTY), which is backed by Tesla's (TSLA) Elon Musk, rose 7% following the deal in the space. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exelixis (EXEL), which rallied 43% after the company reported that a study of cabozantinib in metastatic renal cell carcinoma met its primary endpoint of significant improvement in progression-free survival. The shares were indicated to rise even more in early pre-market trading, but lost some of their gains after Bristol-Myers (BMY) announced that its Opdivo study was stopped early after showing superior overall survival in a Phase 3 study of previously treated patients with advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Bristol-Myers rose a bit less than 1% to trade near $70 per share after its own announcement. Also higher was PayPal (PYPL), which gained more than 5.5% in its first day of trading after being spun out of eBay (EBAY). Meanwhile, eBay shares rose over 2%. Cal-Maine Foods (CALM) dropped 8% after posting lower than expected sales and profits in its fourth quarter and warning that while it should have an adequate supply of its primary feed ingredients, the company expects that prices will be "volatile" in the year ahead. Also lower were shares of several gold miners, including Barrick Gold (ABX) and Newmont Mining (NEM), which each fell about 11%, as gold prices declined about 2% near midday. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 31.66, or 0.18%, to 18,118.11, the Nasdaq was up 9.81, or 0.19%, to 5,219.96, and the S&P 500 was up 2.82, or 0.13%, to 2,129.46.

07:43 EDTLMTLockheed Martin to acquire Sikorsky Aircraft business for $9B
United Technologies (UTX) announced that it has reached an agreement to sell its Sikorsky Aircraft business to Lockheed Martin (LMT) for $9B in cash. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions and adjustments, is projected to close by year-end or in the Q1 of FY16. Proceeds from the sale are expected to be used to fund additional share repurchase to offset the earnings impact related to the sale. The company will discuss this transaction at its previously scheduled conference call with investors. In addition, UTC's Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase program for up to 75M shares of the company's common stock, which would be worth approximately $8.3B based on the NYSE closing price of UTC shares on July 17. The new authorization replaces a previous program, approved in February 2013, which was nearing completion. The precise timing and amount of repurchases will be determined based on the company's evaluation of market conditions and other factors, and the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

On July 20, 2015, Lockheed Martin also announced that it will conduct a strategic review of the government IT infrastructure services business within its IS&GS business segment and the technical services business within its MFC business segment. The programs to be reviewed represent approximately $6B in estimated 2015 annual sales and approximately 17,000 employees. The Lockheed Martin expects the strategic review will result in a spin-off to its shareholders or sale of these businesses. The IS&GS programs that are not included in the strategic review are mostly focused on defense and intelligence customers and will be realigned into the Lockheed Martin's other business segments following completion of the review. The Corporation expects to complete the strategic review in 2015. While the Lockheed Martin performs its strategic review, it will maintain the current operating and reporting structure and will continue to report the financial results of the government IT infrastructure services and technical services businesses in its continuing operations.
