16:55 EDTLRNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street struggled for direction for the first half of the session, making several passes across the flat line. The market seemed ready for a positive day after better than expected jobless claims data, and the buyers finally emerged in the second half of the day. The past two days had taken almost 500 points from the Dow, though the blue chip index ended up recapturing about half of those losses with its gains today. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., jobless claims plunged by 43K to 265K last week, versus expectations for 300K first-time claims. That was the lowest weekly level in nearly 15 years, though the government cautioned that the inclusion of the Martin Luther King holiday makes the data more difficult to calculate. The pending home sales index dropped 3.7% to 100.7 in December, versus expectations for it to have risen 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: McDonald's (MCD) was the best performing member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, rising $4.49, or 5.06%, to $93.27 after announcing last night that Don Thompson will retire as president and CEO on March 1. Steve Easterbrook, who was previously senior executive VP and Chief Brand Officer, was selected to replace Thompson as CEO... Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) reported fourth quarter earnings per share, excluding certain items, that beat analysts' consensus estimate, but its revenue came in below expectations. Shares fell $8.64, or 8.78%, to $89.81 following the report. Yahoo (YHOO), which earlier this week announced that it plans to spin-off its remaining stake in Alibaba in a tax-free transaction, dropped $2.73, or 5.88%, to $43.73 in sympathy. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Coach (COH), which rose $2.48, or 6.8%, to $38.94 after the luxury handbag maker reported better than expected earnings. Also higher was K12 (LRN), which jumped $3.35, or 30.32%, to $14.40 after its second quarter earnings and revenue topped expectations. Among the noteworthy losers was Qualcomm (QCOM), which declined $7.30, or 10.28%, to $63.69 after the chip maker lowered its outlook for fiscal 2015. It also announced that its Snapdragon 810 processor will not be in the upcoming design cycle of a large customer's flagship device, which is widely believed to be Samsung's next generation Galaxy S phone. Also lower were shares of specialty chemicals company Albemarle (ALB), which dropped $7.60, or 13.73%, to $47.77 after the company reported Q4 adjusted EPS and revenue that missed analysts' consensus forecasts and guided toward FY15 revenue and profits that also were below expectations. INDEXES: The Dow rose 225.48, or 1.31%, to 17,416.85, the Nasdaq gained 45.41, or 0.98%, to 4,683.41, and the S&P 500 added 19.09, or 0.95%, to 2,021.25.

07:31 EDTCLHClean Harbors to spin out Oil and Gas Field Services as standalone entity
Clean Harbors announced that, as a result of its strategic review, the company plans to carve out its Oil and Gas Field Services segment as a standalone public entity. Due to the synergies related to drilling activity, Clean Harbors also intends to include its lodging drill camps business from its Lodging segment as part of the new entity. “During the fourth quarter, we completed the comprehensive strategic review of our portfolio that we began in early 2014,” said Alan S. McKim, chairman and CEO. “The review was designed to determine the optimal mix of businesses to drive organic growth, enhance our margins and improve our return on invested capital. Based on this review, we are undertaking a number of initiatives to maximize shareholder value, including the carve-out of our Oil and Gas Field Services segment, while retaining the vast majority of our Lodging segment and our re-refining business.” Since acquiring many of the Oil and Gas segment’s assets in 2009, Clean Harbors has significantly grown the business and greatly expanded the value proposition it offers customers to encompass a combination of exploration, seismic and drilling support, solids/fluids control packages, disposal of drill cuttings and production services. Including the lodging drill camps business, the assets the Company plans to carve out generated approximately $250M in revenue through the first nine months of 2014. While the Oil and Gas Field Services segment experienced a down cycle in the past year, the company believes it constitutes an attractive long-term cyclical business that is well-positioned as a leader within many markets. Clean Harbors has hired Goldman Sachs & Co. as its financial advisor to assist in the proposed transaction, a process that could take more than 12 months. Completion of the transaction is subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to, determination of the most advantageous structure from a financial and tax standpoint, receipt of regulatory approvals, the effectiveness of securities laws filings and final approval by the company’s Board of Directors. There can be no assurance regarding the ultimate structure and timing of the proposed transaction or whether the transaction will be completed.
