12:25 EDTKMI, CQB, TSLA, KING, KMP, KMR, EPB, INO, GOGOOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. There was little in the way of a catalyst, as the economic calendar was empty, though investors may have been encouraged that there was no breakdown in the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Gaza and no big headlines from the Russia/Ukraine border. Additionally, some may have viewed comments from Fed Vice Chair Fischer as dovish and in support of continued easing. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no significant economic data was released. In prepared comments for a conference, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said rebounds across advanced economies have been disappointing, leading the Fed and other observers to lower their long-term expectations for growth potential in the U.S. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Kinder Morgan (KMI) advanced 10% after announcing it will consolidate its oil-and-gas holdings into one company by acquiring all of the outstanding shares of a number of its subsidiaries, including Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Kinder Morgan Management (KMR) and El Paso Pipeline Partners (EPB). In addition to the rise in the shares of the parent, Kinder Morgan Energy shares rose 19%, Kinder Morgan Management gained 25% and El Paso Pipeline moved up 22%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was salad and banana producer Chiquita Brands (CQB), which jumped 31% to trade above $13 per share after Cutrale Group and the Safra Group proposed to acquire 100% of the company's outstanding stock for $13 in cash each. Also higher was electric car maker Tesla (TSLA), which rose 5% after Deutsche Bank upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold and raised its price target on the shares to $310 from $220. Among the noteworthy losers was social game maker King Digital (KING), which slid 3% after the stock was downgraded at Pacific Crest to Sector Perform from Outperform. Also lower following their earnings reports were Inovio (INO), which fell over 8%, and Gogo (GOGO), which dropped nearly 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 51.25, or 0.31%, to 16,605.18, the Nasdaq was up 38.19, or 0.87%, to 4,409.08, and the S&P 500 was up 10.12, or 0.52%, to 1,941.71.

06:08 EDTTSLATesla urges veto of Michigan legislation
Tesla said in a blog post regarding the bill passed in Michigan, "We are calling on concerned consumers to contact the Governor and urge him to veto this legislation and return the issue to the legislature for a full and open debate in 2015." It explained, "On October 1, the Michigan Automobile Dealers Association succeeded in passing a bill that is harmful to consumers. The bill, HB5606, was originally a single amendment to existing law designed to ensure that the car dealers can tack additional fees on to the purchase price for all vehicles (from any manufacturer) sold in Michigan. Such fees have a controversial history, are generally regarded with skepticism and have been the subject of consumer concern in other states." Reference Link
