09:26 EDTATWAtwood Oceanics Atwood Osprey to be out of service for 30 days due to cyclone
Atwood Oceanics (ATW) announced that its semisubmersible drilling unit, the Atwood Osprey, parted several mooring lines and drifted approximately three nautical miles from its original position during Cyclone Olwyn, which impacted the northwest coast of Australia on March 12. The rig is currently stable with a support vessel in position, and preliminary results indicate minimal damage with an estimated maximum of 30 days out of service time for repairs. No rig personnel were injured in the event. The Atwood Osprey is contracted to Chevron Australia (CVX) and was on location at the Iago 1B well. The well had been shut down and secured in accordance with Chevron's cyclone demobilization procedures and the rig had ballasted down and evacuated all its rig personnel in advance of the cyclone. Atwood Oceanics is coordinating its efforts with Chevron, the Australian offshore regulator and other affected parties.

08:59 EDTTSNTyson Foods can withstand bird flu outbreak, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital says that Tyson's business model can withstand "exogenous shocks" such as the current bird flu outbreak in the U.S. The firm does not expect key countries' export bans on U.S. chickens to last more than 60 days, and it says that Tyson has taken several measures, including cutting its reliance on exports and acquiring Hillshire, that reduce the impact of chicken export bans on it. In a worst case scenario, Tyson's 2015 profit will be negatively impacted by $50M by the flu outbreak, estimated the firm, which continued to identify the stock as a top pick and kept a $53 price target.
