12:21 EDTPCLN, GRPN, HPQ, ESC, BKD, STRA, COG, NEMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday despite the day's primary economic report, on existing homes sales, coming in below expectations. Stocks began the session moderately higher as traders rolled out positions ahead of options expiration. The market seemed to lack direction in the opening moments but the buyers emerged following the housing data, as investors may have been cheered that sales fell only slightly more than expected. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales fell 5.1% from the prior month to a rate of 4.62M in January, which was only slightly worse that projected by economists. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of online travel agency priceline.com (PCLN) climbed 3% to trade near $1,325 per share after the company reported stronger than expected fourth quarter results last night. Many research firms reacted to priceline's results and guidance by raising their price targets on the shares, with more than one hiking their targets above $1,500 per share... Groupon (GRPN) reported fourth quarter earnings per share of 4c, excluding certain items, and revenue of $768.4M, beating expectations. However, the company forecast first quarter losses per share 2c-4c, which was far below expectations of 6c per share in earnings. Groupon said it expects one-time costs related to the integration of its recent acquisitions, specifically as it consolidates Ticket Monster with its Korean business, and anticipates approximately $25M of additional investment in marketing and other growth initiatives to drive adoption of the marketplace. Shares of the local e-commerce marketplace owner were down 18% near noon after the report. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Emeritus (ESC), which rose almost 37% after agreeing to a $2.8B deal to merge with Brookdale Senior Living (BKD) in a stock exchange transaction. Also higher was following its earnings report was for-profit education company Strayer Education (STRA), which jumped about 26%. Among the noteworthy losers was Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), which fell 1% after its first quarter results beat expectations but its earnings forecast for the new quarter came in generally below expectations. Also lower following their earnings reports were Cabot Oil & Gas (COG), which fell 7%, and Newmont Mining (NEM), which dropped 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 28.90, or 0.18%, to 16,162.13, the Nasdaq was up 12.40, or 0.29%, to 4,279.94, and the S&P 500 was up 3.94, or 0.21%, to 1,843.72.

08:18 EDTPCLNZillow, Trulia merger story viewed as credible at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank views Bloomberg's report of merger talks between Zillow (Z) and Trulia (TRLA) as credible, saying the deal would make a lot of sense. The firm says Trulia shares would be worth around $63 in a takeover when using Priceline's (PCLN) acquisition of OpenTable as a comparison. Even at that price, the firm sees nearly 20% upside for Zillow's enterprise value should an acquisition occur. Deutsche notes that neither company has denied yesterday's report, nor has either company announced an earnings date. It cautions, though, that the potential merger could easily fall apart as well. It has a Buy rating on Trulia and Hold rating on Zillow.
