14:09 EDTDUKDominion asks FERC to begin environmental review of Atlantic Coast Pipeline
Dominion (D), on behalf of its joint venture partners in the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, submitted a request to begin the pre-filing process with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, asking the commission to begin its environmental review of the proposed $4.5B-$5B, 550-mile natural gas pipeline. Four U.S. energy companies, Dominion, Duke Energy (DUK), Piedmont Natural Gas (PNY) and AGL Resources (GAS), plan to build and own the pipeline, which would run from Harrison County, W.Va., southeast through Virginia with an extension to Chesapeake, Va., and then south through eastern North Carolina to Robeson County. The project will need the approvals of 40 federal, state and local regulatory agencies before construction can begin. The company expects to file its FERC application next summer, receive the FERC Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity in the summer of 2016 and begin construction shortly thereafter. The pipeline is expected to be in service by late 2018.

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 Kohlís (KSS), which dropped $3.89, or 6.64%, to $54.66 after the department store operatorís 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.
