12:16 EDTACAD, BFA, RAH, MMR, LVS, DDS, GLW, BF.B, CAG, THOOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after "core" durable goods orders and a reading on consumer confidence rose. Stock index futures were slightly lower in pre-market trading, even though the terms of a new debt deal for Greece had been outlined prior to the U.S. opening bell. The major averages spent the majority of the session in negative territory despite some better than expected domestic economic data, but managed to get back on the plus side of the ledger as the lunch hour arrived... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Commerce Department said non-defense capital goods orders excluding aircraft rose 1.7% in October, versus expectations for a 0.5% decline. Total durable goods orders were unchanged for the month, versus expectations for them to decline 0.7%. The S&P Case-Shiller 20-city home-price index gained 0.4% in September compared to the prior month and prices in the 20 cities rose 3.0% year over year, which were both roughly in line with forecasts. The Conference Board's consumer confidence index rose to 73.7 in November, beating expectations and hitting its highest level in almost five years. The Richmond Fed manufacturing survey for November registered +9, compared to expectations for it to slide to -9 from the prior -7 reading. In Europe, the region's finance ministers, the ECB and the IMF reached an aid deal on Greece, which is expected to help the nation reduce its debt-to-GDP ratio to 124% by 2020... COMPANY NEWS: ConAgra Foods (CAG) agreed to acquire Ralcorp Holdings (RAH) for $90.00 per share, or about $6.8B including the assumption of debt. Shares of Ralcorp shot up 26.4% to $88.76 following the deal announcement and ConAgra also advanced 4.7% after the news... In the continuation of a recent trend, several companies declared new special dividends, with Dillard's (DDS) to pay a one-time dividend of $5.00 per share, Brown-Forman (BFA, BF.B) declaring one at $4.00 per share, and Las Vegas Sands (LVS) approving its own $2.75 per share special dividend... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was ACADIA Pharmaceuticals (ACAD), up 140% following its report of positive results from a trial of its treatment for Parkinson's disease psychosis, or PDP. Also higher were shares of Corning (GLW), up nearly 8% after the company said it now sees stronger than forecasted Q4 LCD glass volume and Topeka raised its rating on the shares to Buy. Among the noteworthy losers was McMoRan Exploration (MMR), which fell over 15% after being down yesterday as well after the company provided an update on its Gulf of Mexico exploration results and indicated ongoing well difficulties. Also lower were shares of Thor Industries (THO), down 10% after its disappointing quarterly report... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 3.22, or 0.02%, to 12,970.59; the Nasdaq was up 5.79, or 0.19%, to 2,982.57; and the S&P 500 was up 2.32, or 0.16%, to 1,408.61.

08:29 EDTLVSDeutsche cuts 2015 Macau growth forecast to down 21.4%
Deutsche Bank lowered its 2015 Macau gross gaming revenue forecast to down 21.4% from down 8.4% saying the demand issues will not be solved by expanding capacity. The firm's confidence in a Macau turnaround remains "muted," but it continues to view shares of MGM Resorts (MGM) as "meaningfully undervalued." It views Buy-rated Wynn Resorts (WYNN) as better suited for longer term investors at this stage, and lowered its price target for the stock to $170 from $176. Deutsche also cut its price target for Hold-rated Las Vegas Sands (LVS) to $49 from $53.
