16:21 EDTMUOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
Stocks opened deep in negative territory after Greece failed to reach a bailout compromise over the weekend. The averages saw their lows shortly after the open and then began to rebuild and pared their losses. The averages found a level near noon, then drifted into the close with investors looking forward to the two day FOMC meeting that begins tomorrow. The committee's announcement Wednesday afternoon is sure to be the week's most closely watched event among investors. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., industrial production declined 0.2% in May, versus expectations for a 0.2% increase in production, sending capacity utilization in the month down to 78.1%, versus expectations for 78.3% utilization. The Empire manufacturing index, which measures manufacturing activity in New York State, had a reading of -1.98 for June, versus expectations for a +6.0 reading. The NAHB homebuilder sentiment index jumped to 59 in June from 54 in May, which was above the expected increase to a reading of 56. In Europe, talks between Greece and its creditors appeared to go nowhere. The expiration of its bailout package and debt repayments due at the end of the month continue to move closer and concerns about a possible default that could trigger an exit from the euro are rising once again. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Target (TGT) advanced 98c, or 1.23%, to $80.45 after the retailer agreed to sell its pharmacy and clinic businesses to CVS Health (CVS) for approximately $1.9B. Under the terms of the deal, CVS will acquire Target's more than 1,660 pharmacies and operate them through a store-within-a-store format and a CVS/pharmacy will be included in all new Target stores that offer pharmacy services. CVS, which said it expects this transaction to generate significant sales and prescription volumes upon closing and to generate significant operating profit over the long term, rose 34c, or 0.33%, to $102.58 following the deal announcement... United Technologies (UTX) fell $2.99, or 2.54%, to $114.61 after announcing that it will pursue the separation of the Sikorsky Aircraft business. A decision on whether the helicopter maker will be spun off or sold is expected by the end of the third quarter, the Dow member added. In conjunction with the announcement, United Technologies also lowered its FY15 EPS view to $6.55-$6.85 from $6.85-$7.05, explaining that the cut in its expectations reflects one-time separation costs as well as a decline in Sikorsky's operational expectations for the year due to weakness in the oil and gas markets. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Cigna (CI), which jumped $16.19, or 11.79%, to $153.50 after The Wall Street Journal was reportedly told by a source that the company and Anthem (ANTM) have been in deal talks for months and Anthem's most recent takeover bid of $175 per share was turned down by its peer. A prior report from the Journal indicated that Humana (HUM) has hired Goldman Sachs to explore strategic alternatives and had held sale talks with companies including Cigna and Aetna (AET). This new report also noted that the largest health insurer by market cap and revenue, UnitedHealth Group (UNH), is "eyeing" Cigna and Aetna. Among the noteworthy losers was Micron (MU), which dropped 89c, or 3.56%, to $24.24 after Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock to Underweight, becoming the second firm in the last week to cut the stock to a sell or equivalent rating. Also lower were shares of SanDisk (SNDK), which fell $1.96, or 2.97%, to $64.14 after the same Morgan Stanley analyst, Joseph Moore, downgraded the stock to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered his price target on shares to $75 from $80. INDEXES: The Dow fell 107.67, or 0.6%, to 17,791.17, the Nasdaq lost 21.13, or 0.42%, to 5,029.97, and the S&P 500 dropped 9.68, or 0.46%, to 2,084.43.

10:34 EDTMUMicron declines after another analyst says sell
The shares of memory makers Micron (MU) and SanDisk (SNDK) are falling after Morgan Stanley downgraded both stocks in a note to investors earlier today. MICRON: Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore downgraded Micron to Underweight, the firm's equivalent of a "sell" rating, from Equal Weight. Moore said that his checks in Taiwan indicate that the outlook for DRAM, a form of flash memory sold by Micron, is "cautious versus expectations" for the third quarter. Previously, the analyst had expected DRAM to experience a seasonal boost in Q3, but he now expects this lift to be delayed until at least Q4. Moreover, DRAM prices will probably stay weak through Q3 as customers' inventories of DRAM are excessive, while sales of PC DRAM will probably remain weak in Q3 and could stay low in Q4, the analyst stated. Moore is concerned that DRAM supply could exceed expectations in 2016, while demand for the product could decelerate next year. Micron could have difficulty improving its earnings in 2016 from current levels, warned the analyst, who set a $21 price target on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On June 9, after conducting checks in Taiwan, research firm Piper Jaffray predicted that PC DRAM prices would continue to decline. However, the firm kept an Overweight rating on Micron, citing its belief that the stock's valuation was "compelling." Much more pessimistic was research firm Drexel Hamilton, which on June 9 cut its rating on Micron to Sell from Hold, DRAM price declines are likely to continue, the firm predicted. SANDISK: On SanDisk, Moore believes that the company will have trouble recovering from declines in purchases of its products by Apple (AAPL). Various technological issues will prevent it from selling its products to other smartphone makers, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, SanDisk is unlikely to find alternative buyers for its SSD memory, since it is not widely used, added Moore. As a result, SandDsk will have to charge lower prices for its products, according to Moore, who downgraded SanDisk to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered his price target on shares to $75 from $80. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Micron fell 4.5% to $24 and SanDisk gave back 3.3% to $63.90.
