Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday after spending the morning fluctuating between narrow losses and marginal gains. The averages are drifting back and forth across the flat line as investors await the conclusion of the Fed's latest rate setting meeting, which kicked off today. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the consumer price index rose 0.4% in May, which was above the consensus forecast for an increase of 0.2%. Housing starts in the month declined 6.5% to a rate of about 1M and building permits slid 6.4% to a rate of 991K, which were both lower than expected. The Federal Reserve began its FOMC meeting, which will conclude tomorrow. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of register system and hospitality software maker Micros Systems (MCRS) surged 18% higher following a report from Bloomberg that the company is in talks to be acquired by tech giant Oracle (ORCL) for "more than" $5B... Shares of Edwards Lifesciences (EW) advanced nearly 5% after the company announced last night that it has received FDA approval for its SAPIEN XT transcatheter aortic heart valve for the treatment of certain high-risk and inoperable cardiovascular patients. Wells Fargo thinks the broad label and range of sizes approved by the FDA are a positive development for the company, while analysts at Canaccord noted that they view Edwards as an attractive acquisition candidate. Yesterday, CRT Capital said that it believes Medtronic's (MDT) acquisition of Covidien (COV) may signal an increase in sector M&A. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was SolarCity (SCTY), which jumped more than 15% after the solar energy system installer agreed to acquire solar panel technology and manufacturing company Silevo for up to $350M dollars. Also rising were shares of another company where Elon Musk is Chairman of the Board, Tesla Motors (TSLA), which rose over 3.5% after New Jersey's assembly approved a bill allowing the company to sell its cars directly in the state and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a direct sales law in the neighboring state. Also higher was Netflix (NFLX), which rose 3% after Morgan Stanley upgraded the stock and research firm Pacific Crest issued a positive take on the shares in separate notes to investors earlier today. Among the noteworthy losers was executive recruiter Korn/Ferry (KFY), which dropped 3.5% after reporting on results during its just completed quarter and giving guidance for its current quarter. Also lower was Acorda Therapeutics (ACOR), which fell 5.5% after announcing an offering of $300M of convertible senior notes. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 9.46, or 0.06%, to 16,790.47, the Nasdaq was up 17.36, or 0.4%, to 4,338.46, and the S&P 500 was up 2.28, or 0.12%, to 1,940.06.
