11:20 EDTROVIRovi says strongly disagrees with ISS recommendation
Rovi Corporation issued the following statement in response to the recommendation issued by ISS regarding the election of directors at the companyís 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which will be held on May 13. "We believe Roviís seven highly qualified directors are best positioned to continue executing Roviís strategic plan and drive value for Rovi stockholders. Our Board has taken deliberate actions to transform Roviís leadership, strategy and structure, and we are now well-positioned to leverage our compelling patent portfolio and continue developing next-generation products to drive sustainable returns. Engaged Capital has not articulated a vision or alternative plan for Rovi beyond generic corporate finance strategies, and we strongly disagree with ISSí recommendation that stockholders vote for Engaged Capital nominees Raghavendra Rau and Glenn Welling. While we understand ISS has a history of supporting dissidents, we believe that supporting Engaged Capitalís slate of nominees, none of whom have compelling track records or expertise, is not in the best interests of our stockholders. We trust our stockholders will make an independent assessment in deciding the best path forward for Rovi.Ē Roviís Board of Directors and management team intend to provide a more detailed response shortly. Rovi encourages its stockholders to vote the BLUE proxy card.

17:04 EDTROVIOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher for the day, beginning the session sharply higher and remaining in positive territory throughout. Chinaís central bank announced a reduction in bank reserve requirements in an effort to increase liquidity and spur economic growth within the country. Following the open, the market moved in a relatively narrow range as investors await the latest round of earnings reports for one of the season's heavier weeks. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed National Activity Index came in at 0.42 versus expectations for positive 0.1. In Asia, the People's Bank of China lowered its reserve requirement ratio, by 1 percentage point, the lowest since the financial crisis. Despite this, the Shanghai Composite Index fell 1.6% because regulators had already begun curbing speculative trading on Friday. COMPANY NEWS: Morgan Stanley (MS) advanced 0.57%, or 21c, to $36.96 after reporting earnings prior to the market open. The bank beat on both EPS and revenue, and also raised its dividend to 15c from 10c. CEO James Gorman was pleased with the quarter and cited growth across the majority of the company's operations. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Hasbro (HAS), which rose 12.55% to end the session at $74.16 after reporting EPS and revenue in excess of analyst expectations. During its earnings conference call, the company appeared confident on its 2015 offerings which include Disney (DIS) Princess and Frozen product lines. Also higher was Rovi (ROVI), gaining 8.64% to close the day at $19.11 after renewing its licensing and program guide agreement with Charter (CHTR). Among the noteworthy losers was Caesars Entertainment (CZR), tumbling 17.01% to $10 after failing to reach an agreement on its restructuring. Also lower were a number of medical companies involved in the development of CAR-T cancer therapies, including Kite Pharma (KITE), Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), blue bird bio (BLUE), and ZIOPHARM Oncology (ZIOP). The drop followed disappointing, small-scale studies presented during the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. INDEXES: The Dow rose 208.63, or 1.17%, to 18,034.93, the Nasdaq advanced 62.79, or 1.27%, to 4,994.6, and the S&P 500 gained 19.22, or 0.92%, to 2,100.4.

12:31 EDTROVIOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after Chinaís central bank relaxed reserve requirements for its banks. The nation's own stock market struggled to overcome the cross current of other actions taken to cut down on speculative trading there, but U.S. stock markets surged at the open and had not looked back by midday. The domestic economic calendar has quiet and earnings continue to be the focal point at home, as a great number of S&P 500 companies prepare to report this week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed National Activity Index had a reading of -0.42, versus expectations for a +0.10 reading. A reading below zero represents economic activity below trend. In China, the People's Bank of China cut the reserve-requirement ratio, or the amount of reserves lenders need to hold, by 1 full percentage point, which was the biggest cut since the depths of the financial crisis and more than expected by economists. However, the Shanghai Composite Index still dropped 1.6%, since the reserve-requirement cut came after regulators had moved to curb speculative trading with actions taken Friday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Morgan Stanley (MS) advanced 1% after the bank's headline earnings excluding certain adjustments and tax benefits beat expectations. CEO James Gorman noted that the first quarter of the year was the bank's "strongest quarter in many years with improved performance across most areas of the firm." Morgan Stanley also increased its quarterly dividend to 15c per share from 10c per share. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Hasbro (HAS), which gained 10% after the toymaker's sales and profits widely topped expectations in its fiscal first quarter. Also higher was Rovi (ROVI), which gained more than 10% after the company announced it has renewed its patent license and interactive program guide product agreement with Charter Communications (CHTR). Among the noteworthy losers was FARO Technologies (FARO), which dropped 25% and was downgraded by Noble Financial and Needham after the preannounced lower than expected first quarter revenue. Also lower were a number of companies that are developing CAR-T cancer therapies following the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. Mizuho analyst Peter Lawson attributed the pullback to disappointment in this weekend's solid tumor data on a small number of patients with advanced cancers who were given CAR-T therapy developed by Novartis (NVS) and the University of Pennsylvania. Shares of Kite Pharma (KITE), Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), blue bird bio (BLUE), and ZIOPHARM Oncology (ZIOP) were all lower near noon. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 236.19, or 1.32%, to 18,062.49, the Nasdaq was up 59.54, or 1.21%, to 4,991.35, and the S&P 500 was up 21.82, or 1.05%, to 2,103.00.
12:08 EDTROVITiming of Rovi renewal with Charter a plus, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan said the timing of the closing of Rovi's (ROVI) renewal of its IP and programming guide agreement with Charter (CHTR) is advantageous given Rovi's other impending renewals and should give some confidence that large service provider renewals don't hinge on the outcome of the company's court case with Netflix (NFLX). However, the firm added that it would not be surprised to see more volatility in Rovi shares if court rulings favor Netflix and it kept a Neutral rating on the stock.

07:41 EDTROVIRovi shareholders should stay with current management, says Brean Capital
Brean Capital thinks shareholders should stay the course with Rovi's current management, as they believe there is little merit in the charges of activist shareholders.
