08:54 EDTKMIKinder Morgan sees saving $20B in income taxes over 14 years from deal, WSJ says
Kinder Morgan (KMI) sees its $44B deal to consolidate its four entities into one creating about $20B in income-tax savings in the next 14 years, with Kinder Morgan spokesman Larry Pierce stating that the tax advantage isn't unique to this deal, reported The Wall Street Journal. "If someone purchases an office building for $100, they would be allowed to deduct $100 in tax depreciation over time. In our case, KMI is buying pipeline and terminal assets instead of a building, but the same principles apply," the Journal quoted Pierce as saying. Reference Link

16:50 EDTKMIOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory but were never able to gain any upside momentum. There was little to account for the initial move other than no change to the status quo for Israel and Russia. The averages moved in a narrow range but managed to stay on the plus side into the close, though in lackluster fashion. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no significant economic data was released. In prepared comments for a conference, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said rebounds across advanced economies have been disappointing, leading the Fed and other observers to lower their long-term expectations for growth potential in the U.S. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Kinder Morgan (KMI) advanced $3.25, or 9.0%, to $39.37 after announcing it will consolidate its oil-and-gas holdings into one company by acquiring all of the outstanding shares of a number of its subsidiaries, including Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Kinder Morgan Management (KMR) and El Paso Pipeline Partners (EPB). The total transaction has a value of about $70B and the combined entity will be the largest energy infrastructure company in North America and the third largest energy company overall with an estimated enterprise value of approximately $140B, the company said. Afterward, Kinder Morgan was upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA Merrill Lynch, though Wells Fargo viewed the plans as mixed near-term. Wells believes the deal helps address some of the structural issues that have been pressuring Kinderís valuation in recent quarters, but it believes itís unclear how the market will ultimately value the new structure and the firm kept its Market Perform rating on all four stocks involved. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was salad and banana distributor Chiquita Brands (CQB), which jumped $3.04, or 30.22%, to $13.10 to close above the $13 per share takeover offer announced by Cutrale Group and the Safra Group. Note that Chiquita previously agreed to combine with Fyffes plc in a stock-for-stock transaction. Also higher was Mattress Firm (MFRM), which advanced $6.52, or 13.58%, to $54.53 after reporting preliminary second quarter results that beat expectations and raising it fiscal year outlook. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were Walter Investment (WAC), which fell $3.52, or 12.45%, to $24.75, and Inovio (INO), which dropped 99c, or 9.94%, to $8.97. INDEXES: The Dow edged up 16.05, or 0.1%, to 16,569.98, the Nasdaq gained 30.43, or 0.7%, to 4,401.33, and the S&P 500 rose 5.33, or 0.28%, to 1,936.92.

12:25 EDTKMIOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. There was little in the way of a catalyst, as the economic calendar was empty, though investors may have been encouraged that there was no breakdown in the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Gaza and no big headlines from the Russia/Ukraine border. Additionally, some may have viewed comments from Fed Vice Chair Fischer as dovish and in support of continued easing. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no significant economic data was released. In prepared comments for a conference, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said rebounds across advanced economies have been disappointing, leading the Fed and other observers to lower their long-term expectations for growth potential in the U.S. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Kinder Morgan (KMI) advanced 10% after announcing it will consolidate its oil-and-gas holdings into one company by acquiring all of the outstanding shares of a number of its subsidiaries, including Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Kinder Morgan Management (KMR) and El Paso Pipeline Partners (EPB). In addition to the rise in the shares of the parent, Kinder Morgan Energy shares rose 19%, Kinder Morgan Management gained 25% and El Paso Pipeline moved up 22%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was salad and banana producer Chiquita Brands (CQB), which jumped 31% to trade above $13 per share after Cutrale Group and the Safra Group proposed to acquire 100% of the company's outstanding stock for $13 in cash each. Also higher was electric car maker Tesla (TSLA), which rose 5% after Deutsche Bank upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold and raised its price target on the shares to $310 from $220. Among the noteworthy losers was social game maker King Digital (KING), which slid 3% after the stock was downgraded at Pacific Crest to Sector Perform from Outperform. Also lower following their earnings reports were Inovio (INO), which fell over 8%, and Gogo (GOGO), which dropped nearly 6%.
