10:03 EDTMMM3M Petrifilm Rapid Yeast and Mold Plate receives AOAC-PTM approval
3M Food Safety announced today that its new 3M Petrifilm Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plate has received certification from the AOAC Research Instituteís Performance Tested Methods, or PTM, Program. The 3M Petrifilm Rapid Yeast and Mold Plate was first introduced in September 2013 as an indicator test that enables the detection of yeasts and molds in as little as 48 hours, faster than conventional agar methods. The AOAC-PTM certification validates 3Mís innovative test as equivalent to or better than standard reference methods for enumerating yeast and mold within food products including yogurt, sour cream, almonds, sliced apples, frozen bread dough, ready-made pie, sandwiches, dehydrated soup, fermented salami, and frozen ground beef patties. The AOAC Research Institute bases certification of methods on independent study results demonstrating that a given method meets the claims expressed in package inserts. Specific studies performed as part of this certification involved robustness, inclusivity/exclusivity, and lot-to-lot/stability as well as comparison tests with FDA BAM and ISO reference methods.

13:01 EDTMMMOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday amid another deluge of earnings reports. Stocks began the session in negative territory and have remained there through the morning before crossing into positive ground right near noon. The averages gapped up after making it back to the green, putting the Nasdaq back above the all-time closing record it achieved in 2000. A question for the afternoon will be whether the average can hold on to set a new all-time closing high fifteen years later. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims inched up 1K to 295K in the week ended April 18, versus the expected 287K first-time claims. Markit's flash manufacturing PMI fell 1.5 points to 54.2 in April, versus expectations for it to hold steady at 55.7. New home sales dropped 11.4% to a 481K rate in March, versus expectations for a less severe 4.5% drop to a 515K rate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Time Warner Cable (TWC) slid about 1% after The Wall Street Journal reported that the FCC's staff recommended a course of action that could derail the company's merger with Comcast (CMCSA). However, research firm Jefferies remained upbeat on Time Warner Cable shares, upgrading the stock this morning and saying that Charter (CHTR) would probably buy the company if the government nixes the Comcast deal... Among members of the Dow that issued earnings reports this morning, Caterpillar (CAT) slid fractionally while 3M (MMM) and Procter & Gamble (PG) each fell about 2%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was ARRIS (ARRS), which jumped 21% after the company agreed to acquire its competitor Pace for aggregate stock and cash consideration of $2.1B. Also higher following their earnings reports were Skechers (SKX), which rose nearly 13%, and Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), which gained 8.5%. Among the noteworthy losers was MobileIron (MOBL), which plunged 22% after the company warned of a Q1 revenue miss and announced the resignation of its CFO. Also lower following their earnings reports were Texas Instruments (TXN), which fell 7%, and General Motors (GM), which declined nearly 4%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 81.31, or 0.45%, to 18,119.58, the Nasdaq was up 22.69, or 0.45%, to 5,057.86, and the S&P 500 was up 10.32, or 0.49%, to 2,118.28.
