12:16 EDTXOMOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday as investors remain cautious following last quarter's rout. The Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 each lost 7% or more in the third quarter and yesterday's end-of-quarter rally is turning out to be very short-lived as investors brace for tomorrow's nonfarm jobs report and the Federal Reserve rate setting meeting that comes late this month. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Markit's manufacturing purchasing managers' index inched up to 53.1 in the final September reading, compared to the preliminary September figure of 53.0 that was flat from August. ISM's manufacturing index fell to 50.2 in September, however, versus expectations for a reading of 50.6. Construction spending grew 0.7% in August, versus the consensus expectation for a rise of 0.5% for the month. Initial jobless claims rose to 277,000 in the week of September 26, versus expectations for 271,000 first-time claims. In Asia, Chinese markets were closed for holidays, but monthly manufacturing data was still released. The government's official manufacturing PMI ticked up to 49.8, beating expectations for a 49.6 reading. The final Caixin/Markit PMI, meanwhile, fell to a fresh six-and-a-half-year low of 47.2 in September, though that was slightly improved an earlier flash estimate of 47. In Japan, the Bank of Japan's quarterly tankan survey of large manufacturers for the September quarter came in at positive 12, compared with expectations for a positive 13 reading. In Europe, Markit's final Eurozone manufacturing PMI for September came in at 52.0, consistent with the flash figure and down from August's final 52.3 reading. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of General Motors (GM) rose fractionally near midday after the company reported its U.S. sales grew 12% in September compared to the same month of last year. Additionally, the auto giant hosted a global business update event, where it announced two new car- and ride-sharing projects and confirmed its plans to jointly develop a commercially viable fuel cell vehicle with Honda (HMC) in the 2020 timeframe. Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), which reported U.S. sales increased 14% last month, and Ford (F), which said its U.S. sales rose 23% in September, both saw their shares slip fractionally near noon. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), which rallied 19% after the company released additional data from its Phase IIb program of eteplirsen in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Also higher was PBF Energy (PBF), which gained 10% after agreeing to purchase the 155,000 barrel-per-day Torrance refinery, and related logistics assets, from ExxonMobil (XOM). Among the noteworthy losers was Crocs (CROX), which dropped 14% after Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy downgraded the stock to Neutral, saying adverse currency moves and China weakness could cause sales to miss expectations in Q3. Also lower were shares of Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), which fell 10% after the company projected third quarter U.S. same-store sales that fell below the prior year period and said it would close 100 stores in the U.S. in 2015 and 2016. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 195.02, or 1.2%, to 16,089.68, the Nasdaq was down 55.92, or 1.21%, to 4,564.24, and the S&P 500 was down 17.57, or 0.92%, to 1,902.46.

07:07 EDTETPEnergy Transfer Equity sees Williams deal immediately accretive to cash flow
At closing, the transaction will be immediately accretive to distributable cash flow and distributions per unit for ETE and is expected to be credit positive to ETE's credit ratings; ETE's distribution growth rate is expected to remain at its current level; As a result of diligence, the size of both the expected cost savings and the anticipated commercial synergies exceeds ETE's previous expectations and will help ensure that the duration of ETE's distribution growth rate will be longer as a result of the transaction.
