11:30 EDTMBI, BACMBIA says Bank of America tender offer not in best interest of note holders
MBIA Inc. (MBI), the parent of MBIA Insurance Corporation, announced that it recommends rejection of the unsolicited tender offer by Bank of America Corporation (BAC) on November 13 to purchase all of MBIA’s outstanding 5.70% Senior Notes due 2034. MBIA said it believes that BOA’s tender offer is not in the best interest of the holders of the Notes because, "as reflected in BOA’s own public statements, we believe the purpose of BOA’s tender offer is not to make an economic investment in MBIA Inc.'s debt securities, but rather to affect the outcome of MBIA Corp.'s RMBS-related put-back claims against BOA and obtain a preferential settlement of those claims and its other MBIA Corp. exposure. Such an outcome would be detrimental to all policyholders other than BOA; and, in combination with BOA’s stated intention that the consent solicitation amending the bond indentures fail, detrimental to all MBIA Inc. bondholders." MBIA also stated, "BOA has retained a right to terminate the tender offer under a number of specified circumstances, significantly reducing the likelihood that the transaction will be completed." MBIA said it is evaluating its legal options with respect to BOA’s tender offer, including whether it violates any applicable laws, and may take such actions as it believes are available to it and necessary to protect the interests of its insurance subsidiaries' policyholders and its security holders.

16:20 EDTBACOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street had a see-saw trading day, with every attempt at getting the averages into positive territory being met with more selling. The market spent most of the day in negative territory, however, as the latest bank earnings reports failed to impress investors, the price of oil renewed its downtrend, and the Swiss National bank withdrew its floor support on the Swiss franc. ECONOMIC EVENTS: Internationally, Switzerland's central bank unexpectedly gave up its minimum exchange rate, sending the Swiss franc soaring against the dollar and euro and triggering wild swings in its equity markets. In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 19K to 316K in the week ended January 10, versus expectations for 298K first-time claims. The producer price index fell 0.3% in December, versus expectations for a decrease of 0.4%. The core PPI rate rose 0.3% in the month, versus expectations for it to be up 0.1%. The Empire State index rebounded to 9.95 in January, beating expectations for a 5.0 reading for the measure of manufacturing activity in the New York area. The Philly Fed index fell 18.0 points to 6.3 in January, which was worse than the projected pullback to a reading of 18.7. WTI crude oil, the U.S. benchmark, reversed its early gains to end the trading session down 4.6% at $46.25 per barrel. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Target (TGT) advanced $1.34, or 1.8%, to $75.67 after the retailer announced plans to stop operating stores in Canada. Target expects this decision will increase its earnings in fiscal 2015 and beyond, and increase its cash flow in fiscal 2016 and beyond. The company also raised its forecasts for Q4 U.S. comparable sales growth and adjusted earnings per share, mostly due to increased traffic and stronger-than-expected digital sales... Bank of America (BAC) slid 84c, or 5.24%, to $15.20 after reporting its fourth quarter results, while Citigroup (C), which also issued its Q4 report, dropped $1.82, or 3.71%, to $47.23. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF), which rose 93c, or 11.94%, to $8.72 amid strength in the basic materials sector. Also benefitting the stock may have been a Bloomberg report that said an adviser to Quebec's investment arm stated that Cliffs' closed down Bloom Lake mine has attracted interest from several potential buyers. Also higher were shares of Kraft Foods (KRFT), which climbed $2.92, or 4.66%, to $65.68 after Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock to Buy and placed the shares on its Conviction List. Also of note, the Consumer Analyst Group of New York confirmed to Bloomberg that the food and beverage manufacturer canceled its upcoming conference appearance. Among the noteworthy losers was Best Buy (BBY), which dropped $5.61, or 14.06%, to $34.30 after reporting holiday growth that was lower than previous quarters, citing factors including weakness in tablets, and guiding toward comparable sales in the first half of FY16, excluding certain items, to be flat to down by a low-single digit percentage. Also lower were shares of BlackBerry (BBRY), which declined $2.49, or 19.77%, to $10.10 after the company said last night that it is not in talks with Samsung (SSNLF) about a potential merger, rebutting a Reuters report. INDEXES: The Dow fell 106.38, or 0.61%, to 17,320.71, the Nasdaq dropped 68.50, or 1.48%, to 4,570.82, and the S&P 500 declined 18.60, or 0.92%, to 1,992.67.
