12:33 EDTMON, AGU, MNKD, XLRN, CELG, LQDT, APOLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday after payroll provider ADP estimated that employers added 191K jobs in March. The jobs addition was slightly less than expected, but a figure near 200K still may add confidence that Friday's jobs report from the Department of Labor may be an encouraging one. ECONOMIC EVENTS: ADP estimated that private payrolls increased 191K in March, which fell just short of the 193K consensus estimate. Factory orders grew by 1.6% in February, versus expectations for an increase of 1.2% in the month. COMPANY NEWS: Agribusiness giant Monsanto (MON) rose 1.5% after reporting better than expected earnings and revenue for its just-completed second quarter and confirming its fiscal year profit guidance. Another agricultural products maker, fertilizer producer Agrium (AGU), slid over 2% after warning that the late spring season this year is expected to impact the timing of its wholesale, and to a lesser extent its retail, earnings. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was MannKind (MNKD), which surged more than 77% after an FDA advisory panel voted to recommend its Afrezza inhalation powder to treat type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Also higher was Acceleron Pharma (XLRN), which rose 15% after its larger partner Celgene (CELG) reached a deal to raise its stake in Acceleron to 14.8% by acquiring 1.1M Acceleron shares from five current stockholders. Among the noteworthy losers was Liquidity Services (LQDT), which dropped 11% after RW Baird said the company's high bid for the Non-Rolling Stock portion of the Defense Logistics Agency’s surplus liquidation contract is "quite a bit" higher than it expected. Also lower was Apollo Education (APOL), which fell 8% near noon despite an upgrade of its shares at Wells Fargo after the company's Q2 revenue missed expectations and it also disclosed the receipt of a subpoena by its University of Phoenix unit from the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Education. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 19.39, or 0.12%, to 16,552.00, the Nasdaq was up 5.39, or 0.13%, to 4,273.43, and the S&P 500 was up 4.81, or 0.26%, to 1,890.33.

12:03 EDTAGU, MONUSDA raises U.S. corn yield forecast to record
In its monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, or WASDE, report, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's corn yield forecast is raised 4.3 bushels per acre to a record 171.7 bushels. Corn production for 2014/15 is forecast 363 million bushels higher at a record 14,395 million bushels. Total 2014/15 corn usage is projected at 13,605 million bushels, up 170 million from last month. Although a record, usage is expected up just 5 million bushels from 2013/14 as export prospects remain constrained by large foreign carryin stocks, the USDA wrote. Publicly traded companies in the agriculture space include Agrium (AGU), Andersons (ANDE), Archer Daniels (ADM), Bunge (BG), CF Industries (CF), Compass Minerals (CMP), DuPont (DD), Intrepid Potash (IPI), Monsanto (MON), Mosaic (MOS), Potash (POT) and Syngenta (SYT).
