15:56 EDTHOTStarwood could be worth $103/share in buyout, says SunTrust
SunTrust says the FTC's move to grant early termination notice on the potential Senator Global Opportunity Offshore Fund, Starwood deal could be driving some takeover speculation in the name. The firm sees Wyndham (WYN) as the most likely acquirer, and estimates that Starwood (HOT) could be worth $103 in a takeout scenario. SunTrust questions whether the speculation is "all smoke and no fire," however, and keeps a Neutral rating on the stock with an $85 price target.

07:04 EDTHOTStarwood downgraded to Neutral from Buy at SunTrust
SunTrust's industry checks indicate significant weakness in forward bookings due to FX impact on international tourism, lower oil prices, and increased supply. The firm said companies with the most exposure to New York City, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Miami, Seattle, and Houston have the most risk. Additionally, SunTrust said Q2-Q3 U.S. Upper Upscale RevPAR tracking is only tracking to the low-end of the +4-6% range. Due to valuation and higher exposure to luxury and upper-upscale segment, SunTrust downgraded Starwood to Neutral and maintained its $85 price target.

06:47 EDTCZRCreditors dispute 'inside deals' surrounding Caesars loyalty program, WSJ says
Caesars Entertainment's (CZR) customer loyalty program has been valued at $1B by creditors, who alleged in lawsuits surrounding its January bankruptcy that the Caesars parent company and majority stake holder Apollo (APO) made several improper deals designed to keep the loyalty unit inaccessible to creditors, reports the Wall Street Journal. Fitch Ratings analyst Alex Bumazhny now calls a swift bankruptcy process "increasingly unlikely," while the presiding judge gave additional scope last week to investigate the disputed deals.

16:26 EDTWYNNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened lower but turned mixed early in the day and remained that way for most of the session. The Dow and S&P spent most of the day deep in negative territory, while the Nasdaq managed to stay just above the flat line. Investors had a chance to digest yesterday’s comments from the Fed and may have re-considered whether it latest policy stance was as dovish as originally believed. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 1K to 291K in the week ended March 14, which nearly matched the consensus 293K forecast. The current account deficit widened to $113.5B in Q4 from a revised deficit of $98.9B in Q3. The leading indicators for February rose 0.2% to 121.4, which was in-line with expectations. The Philadelphia Fed business outlook survey ticked down to a 5.0 one-year low from 5.2 in February, missing expectations for it to have risen a 7.0 reading. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) joined the Dow Jones Industrial Average after the close last night, replacing AT&T (T). Shares of Apple finished their first day in the blue chip index down 97c, or 0.76%, at $127.50, while AT&T fell 39c, or 1.16%, to $33.20... Coffee giant Starbucks (SBUX) rose $1.92, or 2%, to close at $97.76 after hitting a new all-time high of $99.20 earlier. The move follows the company's investor day meeting yesterday, where it unveiled plans for two pilots of delivery services, reported a partnership to expand the distribution of its ready-to-drink products in China, and announced that its board has declared the sixth two-for-one split of the company’s stock since its IPO in 1992. Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo were both unphased by the record highs and predicted the rally is not over for Starbucks in upbeat notes on the stock today. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Amicus Therapeutics (FOLD), which rose $3.11, or 33.26%, to $12.46 after reporting positive results in meetings with the EMA and FDA. Also higher was Wynn Resorts (WYNN), which gained $7.19, or 5.85%, to $130.11 after research firm Brean Capital last night initiated coverage of the stock and several casino peers with Buy ratings. Among the noteworthy losers was Transocean (RIG), which fell $1.09, or 7.15%, to $14.16 after saying that it intends to scrap four rigs and noting that with those it has announced plans to scrap a total of 16 floaters. Also lower after its earnings report was diversified apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell $3.50, or 16.36%, to $17.89. INDEXES: The Dow fell 117.16, or 0.65%, to 17,959.03, the Nasdaq gained 9.55, or 0.19%, to 4,992.38, and the S&P 500 declined 10.23, or 0.49%, to 2,089.27.

The stock was last at $128.90, just off the high of the day at $129.12. At current price, next resistance is at $130.96. Given the sharp decline in price over the last year, there is a great deal of technical damage to repair. It would take a move above the 50-day moving average, last at $144.87, to turn the shares back to bullish. Support is at $126.63.

07:15 EDTCZRCaesar's says disputes raise 'substantial doubt' about 'going concern' status
Caesar's stated in a regulatory filing after the close Monday that the company is subject to currently pending or threatened litigation and demands for payment by certain creditors asserting CEC is obligated under the former parent guarantee of certain CEOC defaulted debt. The litigation pending against CEOC, and in certain cases against CEC and its other subsidiaries, have been stayed due to the Chapter 11 bankruptcy process, however, certain litigation and the demands against CEC are continuing outside of the Chapter 11 bankruptcy process. "We believe that the Litigation claims and Demands against CEC are without merit and intend to defend ourselves vigorously. At the present time, we believe it is not probable that a material loss will result from the outcome of these matters," Caesar's stated. The noteholder disputes are in their very preliminary stages and discovery has begun on the unsecured note lawsuits, the company noted. "Should these matters ultimately be resolved through litigation outside of the CEOC Financial Restructuring, and were a court to find in favor of the claimants in any of these Noteholder Disputes, such determination could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows. Accordingly, we have concluded that the material uncertainty related to certain of the Litigation proceeding against CEC raises substantial doubt about the company’s ability to continue as a going concern," Caesar's added.
