16:26 EDTTAPStocks end week lower as retail gets routed
Stocks ended the week sharply lower after weak retail earnings reports, highlighted by Macy's (M), were followed by a worse than expected government report on retail sales performance in October.

When autos and gas are removed, the core reading was up 0.3%, versus expectations for a rise of 0.4%. Producer prices fell 0.4%, versus expectations for them to be up 0.2%.

In Europe, data showed that eurozone's economy grew by just 0.3% in the third quarter, which was a slowdown from the 0.4% GDP growth recorded three months earlier and weaker than the 0.4% consensus growth forecast. In China, exports declined for a fourth straight month in October, sliding 3.6%, while imports fell for a 12th straight month, declining 16% in yuan terms. China's foreign-exchange reserves rose in October for the first time in six months, increasing to $3.53T from $3.51T at the end of September, the People's Bank of China reported. Industrial output in China rose 5.6% in October, matching March's reading as the weakest since 2008. Retail sales climbed 11% last month, beating expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of retailers broadly declined following disappointing earnings reports and commentary from a number of department store operators, including Macy's, Nordstrom (JWN) and J.C. Penney (JCP). Weather was cited by a number of them, and analysts also pointed to the continued rise in competition felt by brick-and-mortar retailers from e-commerce players, mainly (AMZN)...

Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD) and SABMiller (SBMRY) came to terms on a deal to combine the companies in a transaction worth $107B. In relation to their deal, Molson Coors (TAP) agreed to purchase SABMiller's 58% stake in MillerCoors, the joint venture formed in the United States in 2008, in a deal valued at $12B. Molson Coors was the biggest winner in terms of percentage stock gains immediately following the announcements, rising over 4% on Wednesday... Mylan (MYL) jumped after the company's offer to acquire Perrigo (PRGO) failed, ending a seven-month fight between the two drugmakers. Perrigo Chief Executive Officer Joseph Papa said he was "delighted" that his company's shareholders rejected the offer and the company added that it will immediately commence its previously announced $2B share buyback program, but its shares slid in the wake of the shareholder vote... PayPal (PYPL) shares saw three straight days of losses after the Wall Street Journal reported that Apple (AAPL) is working on a mobile payments service that could compete with the firm's Venmo platform... Angie's List (ANGI) advanced after IAC/InterActiveCorp (IACI), the parent company of HomeAdvisor, made public a $8.75 per share cash buyout offer.

Alibaba Group (BABA) reported blockbuster sales for the 11.11 shopping festival, better known as "Singles' Day." By the end of Wednesday in China, gross merchandise volume on Alibaba's platforms hit $14.3B, far exceeding last year's 24-hour total of $9.3B and topping the company's $11B forecast.
