16:35 EDTCZR, SONS, MHP, CYBX, APKT, BUD, BSFT, MCOOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were down on the day after the averages opened sharply lower following Friday's run-up and never mounted a rally. The averages moved lower through the day as January's gains put investors in a position for profit taking. Among notable companies reporting earnings after the close are Gilead (GILD) and Yum! Brands (YUM)... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the ISM New York area reading of 56.7 was ahead of the expected reading of 53.0. A separate report showed factory orders increased 1.8% in December, versus an expected increase of 2.3%. In Europe, Spanish and Italian government bond yields rose following political developments in both countries. In China, non-manufacturing PMI ticked up to 56.2 from 56.1 last month... COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McGraw-Hill (MHP), lost $8.04, or 13.78%, to $50.30 after the Wall Street Journal said the company's S&P Ratings Service is set to face a civil lawsuit from the Department of Justice related to mortgage bond ratings it made before the 2008 financial crisis. CNBC's David Faber later reported that settlement talks between S&P and the Justice Department broke down as the DoJ was seeking a "10 figure settlement and admission of wrongdoing." The company came out and said the threatened civil lawsuit is without legal merit and unjustified... Shares of Acme Packet (APKT) gained $5.66, or 23.65%, to $29.59 after agreeing to be acquired by Oracle (ORCL) for $29.25 per share. Acme Packet's peers gained following the news, as Sonus Networks (SONS) rose 46c, or 20.18%, to $2.74 while Broadsoft (BSFT) rose $3.58, or 10.23%, to $38.56, though shares of Oracle declined $1.08, or 2.97%, to $35.13... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Cyberonics (CYBX), up $2.46, or 5.55%, to $46.81 after a former employee dropped a lawsuit against the company. Also higher were shares of Caesar's Entertainment (CZR), up 90c, or 11.52%, to $8.71 after the company said it is pursuing a strategic transaction to transfer complementary and growth-related assets into a separate entity. Among the noteworthy losers was Moody's (MCO), which fell $5.90, or 10.66%, to $49.45 after news that ratings peer S&P would be charged with a civil lawsuit by the DoJ relating to CDO ratings made before the financial crisis, though CNBC's David Faber said the potential suit did not involve Moody's. Also lower were shares of AB InBev (BUD), down $4.61, or 5%, to $87.67 after shares were downgraded to Neutral with an $89 price target at BofA Merrill Lynch... INDICES: The Dow was down 129.71, or 0.93%, to 13,880.08; the Nasdaq was down 47.93, or 1.51%, to 3,131.17; and the S&P 500 was down 17.46, or 1.15%, to 1,495.71.

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.

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.
