MACRO NEWS: The week's marquee economic data point, the U.S. employment report for January, showed that the U.S. economy added 113,000 non-farm jobs in the month.

As part of the agreement, Coke took a 10% equity stake in the K-cup maker for $1.25B, and shares of Green Mountain gained more than 33% for the week... Automakers reported U.S. January sales on Monday of this week, with Ford (F) reporting sales than fell 7% and General Motors (GM) reporting sales that fell 12%... Among notable gainers following their reports were KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell owner Yum! Brands (YUM), Dow member and media giant Disney (DIS), as well as both 21st Century Fox (FOXA) and News Corp. (NWSA), which were formerly bundled under the News Corp. umbrella. Among the notable decliners following their quarterly report were microblogging site Twitter (TWTR), which fell more than 24% after its first quarterly report as a public company. 3D Systems (DDD) also saw its shares decline sharply after its quarterly report, with the 3-D printer manufacturer finishing the week down about 15%.
