17:01 EDTKSSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory despite two disappointing economic data points and a mixed report from social media giant Twitter (TWTR). The market moved in a narrow range for the opening half hour of trading but gained upside momentum following a much better than expected consumer confidence reading. The market continued to tack on points throughout the afternoon and closed at its highs, led by the Nasdaq, which gained 1.75% for the session. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., durable goods orders fell 1.3% in September, significantly undershooting expectations for them to have rise 0.7% in the month. The S&P Case-Shiller home price report showed prices were lower on a seasonally adjusted basis in the month of August compared to the prior month. A reading of consumer confidence surged to a seven-year high of 94.5 in October from a revised 89.0 final reading for September. The Richmond Fed's manufacturing index rose 6 points to 20 in October, beating expectations for it to have pulled back to 10. COMPANY NEWS: Twitter (TWTR) sunk $4.78, or 9.84%, to $43.78 after the social media company reported in-line profit and higher than expected Q3 revenue, but also reported a slowdown in user growth and provided weaker than expected Q4 guidance. Following last night's report, the stock was downgraded at RBC Capital, Nomura and Bank of America Merill Lynch to "Hold" or equivalent ratings, while Stifel lowered its rating on Twitter shares to Sell from Hold... Shares of Pfizer (PFE) edged up 6c, or 0.21%, to $29.09 after the pharmaceutical giant reported third quarter adjusted earnings per share and revenue that were a bit better than expected and narrowed its fiscal year profit outlook. Of note, Pfizer said during its earnings conference call that while proposed rule changes have made "inversions" more difficult, that meaningful value from inversion deals can still exists on a "case-by-case" basis. Shares of AstraZeneca (AZN), which was previously a target of Pfizer, gained 67c, or 0.95%, to $71.43 following Pfizer's comments. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Whirlpool (WHR), which advanced $10.66, or 6.77%, to $168.06, Cummins (CMI), which gained $9.22, or 6.81%, to $144.59, and Cliffs Natural (CLF), which jumped $2.05, or 22.19%, to $11.29. Among the noteworthy losers was Kohl’s (KSS), which dropped $3.89, or 6.64%, to $54.66 after the department store operator’s outlook for third quarter same store sales and fiscal 2014 profit missed expectations. Also lower were shares of Coach (COH), which fell $2.15, or 5.95%, to $34.00 after the luxury handbag and accessory maker reported sales declined 9% on a constant currency basis in its first quarter. INDEXES: The Dow rose 187.81, or 1.12%, to 17,005.75, the Nasdaq advanced 78.36, or 1.75%, to 4,564.29, and the S&P 500 gained 23.42, or 1.19%, to 1,985.05.

11:44 EDTWMTGameStop weakness on Wal-Mart news a buying opportunity, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray believes the impact of Wal-Mart (WMT) on GameStop's (GME) used business will be immaterial and views today's pullback as a buying opportunity. Piper notes that the entrance of Wal-Mart into any market should not be taken lightly, but other retailers have tried and failed before to enter the used game business and that Wal-Mart's entry actually refutes the bear thesis on GameStop that the used game business is not attractive. The firm maintains its Overweight rating and $53 price target on GameStop.

07:24 EDTSHLDSears board approves rights offering
Sears announced that the company’s board of directors has approved a rights offering allowing its stockholders to purchase up to $625M in aggregate principal amount of 8% senior unsecured notes due 2019 and warrants to purchase shares of its common stock. This rights offering will generate up to an additional $625M in proceeds, if it is fully subscribed and closes as planned, with the proceeds to be used for general corporate purposes. The subscription rights will be distributed to all stockholders of record of the company, and every stockholder will have the right to participate on the same terms in accordance with its pro rata ownership of the company’s common stock, except that holders of the company’s restricted stock that is unvested as of the record date are expected to receive cash awards in lieu of subscription rights. In the rights offering, the company anticipates that holders of its common stock, other than holders of restricted stock that is unvested, will receive subscription rights on a pro rata basis based on shares of common stock held at the close of business on October 30, the record date for the rights offering. Each subscription right will entitle the holder thereof to purchase, at a subscription price equal to the principal amount of each note, one unit, consisting of an 8% senior unsecured note due 2019 in a principal to be determined and a number of warrants equal to that principal amount divided by the strike price for the warrants, with each warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of the company’s common stock at a strike price of $28.41, the closing market price on October 17. The warrants will be exercisable for a period of five years following the offering. Upon the closing of the rights offering, the components of the units will immediately separate from one another such that the senior unsecured notes and warrants will constitute separate securities and will be transferable separately. The subscription rights will be transferable and are expected to be listed and traded on the NASDAQ. The senior unsecured notes will be transferable but will not be listed for trading on any exchange. The warrants will be transferable, and the company intends to apply to list the warrants for trading on the NASDAQ. Holders of subscription rights who fully exercise all of their subscription rights may also make a request to purchase additional units through the exercise of an over-subscription privilege, although we cannot assure investors that any over-subscriptions will be filled.
