07:15 EDTWMT, MGIMoneyGram revising 2014 outlook due to Walmart-to-Walmart white label product
While first quarter results were strong and in line with its full-year forecast, the Company is revising its 2014 outlook due to the recently introduced Walmart-to-Walmart white-label product. In the first quarter, the Company earned 12 percent of total company revenue and 9 percent of total company revenue less commissions from its U.S.-to-U.S., Walmart-to-Walmart transactions. Due to the limited time the competing product has been in the market, it is uncertain what the cannibalization effect or competitive price environment will be for the U.S.-to-U.S. business. In an effort to mitigate any potential negative impact, management has initiated an accelerated cost-reduction program along with a strengthened emphasis on growing its U.S. outbound sends as well as sends originated outside of the U.S. Considering these factors, the Company now estimates full-year constant currency revenue growth to be in the range of 1 to 3 percent and estimates full-year constant currency Adjusted EBITDA growth to be in the range of 0 to 2 percent. As previously announced, the Company anticipates incurring $30 to $40 million in cash outlays over the next two years for reorganization and restructuring costs. These activities are estimated to generate annualized pre-tax cost savings of approximately $15 to $20 million on a run-rate basis exiting 2015. In the first quarter, total expenses were $3.1 million.

12:11 EDTMGIOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
The Wall Street averages began the session slightly lower, soon turned mixed and have all returned to positive ground near midday. The Nasdaq has been the strongest of the indexes throughout. The S&P 500 is trying to hold onto its gain of about 1.5% for the month as July comes to a close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the employment cost index for the second quarter increased 0.2%, versus expectations for an increase of 0.6%. The Chicago PMI business barometer index bounced to 54.7 in July, topping the expected reading of 50.8. The final reading of the University of Michigan consumer confidence index for July came in at 93.1, which was down from the 93.3 flash reading and below the 94 that was expected. In Europe, Athex stated that the Athens Stock Exchange will reopen on August 3. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) declined 2.9% and 3.6%, respectively, after both energy majors reported lower than expected earnings due to falling oil prices. Exxon noted that its Downstream and Chemical segment earnings increased significantly from the second quarter of last year, but that those higher earnings were more than offset by the impact of weaker Upstream realizations and lower asset management gains. Chevron, meanwhile, recorded impairments of $1.96B and other charges of approximately $670M relating to project suspensions and adverse tax effects, all of which stemmed from a downward revision in the company’s longer-term crude oil price outlook. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE), which rose 13% after the Wall Street Journal reported that the company is in advanced merger talks with Coca-Cola bottlers for Germany and the region of Spain, Portugal and Andorra. Also higher following their earnings reports were MoneyGram (MGI), which gained 27%, Expedia (EXPE), which added 10%, and SkyWest (SKYW), which rallied 20%. Among the noteworthy losers was FireEye (FEYE), which fell 5% after reporting quarterly results and announcing that CFO Michael Sheridan intends to leave the company. Also lower following their earnings reports were Ocwen Financial (OCN), which fell 28.5%, and Hanesbrands (HBI), which dropped 10%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 10.36, or 0.06%, to 17,756.34, the Nasdaq was up 18.60, or 0.36%, to 5,147.38, and the S&P 500 was up 3.98, or 0.19%, to 2,112.61.
