13:26 EDTSINAOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with the Dow and S&P 500 slightly lower and the Nasdaq clinging to a narrow gain. The broader market opened in positive territory and the averages moved in a narrow trading range during the morning. The Nasdaq has been the strongest of the indices since the open, though early gains from Apple (AAPL) and Qualcomm (QCOM) had evaporated by near midday, taking a bite out of the gains the index had been seeing earlier in the session. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was released. In China, export sales unexpectedly contracted 15% in March, while imports shrank 12.7% last month from a year ago. The March fall in imports was in line with forecasts, unlike the one for exports, which were expected to rise 12%. COMPANY NEWS: Activist investor Jana Partners is putting pressure on Qualcomm to increase stock buybacks and take other actions to increase shareholder value, including an exploration of spinning off its chip unit from its patent-licensing unit. In response to statements made by JANA, Qualcomm noted that it recently increased its stock repurchase authorization to $15B and repeated that it plans to repurchase $10B of common stock within one year. Barry Rosenstein of JANA Partners, while speaking on CNBC, said Qualcomm should buy back $15B of its shares over the next six months, before the company undertakes strategic actions that could move the stock higher... Apple shares were rising early in the trading day but had given up their gains by midday. Pre-orders of its new Apple Watch started Friday. The company did not release any sales figures for the first weekend, but research firm Slice Intelligence estimated that nearly one million customers in the U.S. preordered the device on the first day it was available. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Alamos Gold (AGI), which rose 6%, and AuRico Gold (AUQ), which rose 7%, after the companies announced an agreement to combine via "a merger of equals" with a transaction equity value of about $1.5B. Upon completion of the deal, former Alamos and AuRico shareholders will each own approximately 50% of the new Alamos Gold and a new company, to be named AuRico Metals, will be created to hold AuRico's Kemess project and some other assets. The newly formed company will own a 4.9% equity interest in the spinoff and the remaining "SpinCo" shares will be distributed 50% each to former Alamos and AuRico shareholders. Also higher was Builders FirstSource (BLDR), which gained 65% after announcing that it has entered into an agreement to acquire ProBuild Holdings in an all-cash transaction valued at about $1.63B. Among the noteworthy losers was Basic Energy (BAS), which fell 8% after Raymond James downgraded the stock to Market Perform based on valuation, substantial pricing pressure, and industry overcapacity. Also lower were U.S.-listed shares of Sina (SINA), which dropped 5% after the Financial Times reported that China's government has warned that it will shut down the company's service if it does not "improve censorship." INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 19.08, or 0.11%, to 18,038.57, the Nasdaq was up 7.93, or 0.16%, to 5,003.91, and the S&P 500 was down 3.04, or 0.14%, to 2,099.02.

08:05 EDTPLCEChildren's Place rejects director nominations from Barington, Macellum
The Children's Place confirmed that it has received notice from Barington Capital Group, L.P. and Macellum Advisors GP, LLC, which collectively own less than 2% of the company’s shares, that they have nominated three individuals in opposition to The Children’s Place’s three nominees -- Norman Matthews, Kenneth Reiss and Stanley Reynolds -- standing for re-election to the Board of Directors at the company’s 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, to be held on May 22, 2015. The Children’s Place's Board of Directors has evaluated Barington and Macellum’s nominees and concluded that the company’s three nominees and the other members of the Board have the right combination of expertise, experience and independence. As such, the Board recommends election of the company’s nominees and has rejected the Barington/Macellum nominees. Stockholders do not need to take any action at this time. Matthews continued: “We appreciate constructive input from our shareholders and are always open to listen to ideas to improve the Company. However, we believe that Barington and Macellum’s views on the Company’s leadership and performance are simply incorrect. Our Board and management team are driving a transformation of The Children’s Place, which has resulted in a significant increase in shareholder value, measured by an increase in stock price, share repurchases and the payment of dividends. Substantial progress has been made, and we expect to continue to see the benefits of our meaningful investments in 2015. Our management team has updated our merchandise assortments, developed and is implementing a sweeping systems and technology transformation plan, transformed our outlet channel, launched international franchise and wholesale businesses, and evaluated and continues to optimize our store fleet. We believe The Children’s Place is well positioned to continue to excel in the intensely competitive specialty children’s apparel category.” Goldman, Sachs & Co. is financial advisor to The Children’s Place. Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP is the Company’s legal advisor.

Several major retailer including Gap (GPS) and Target (TGT) are under investigation by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman over their staffing practices and whether they require workers to show up or stay home with little notice, The Wall Street Journal reports. Schneiderman sent letters warning Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), JC Penney (JCP), Urban Outfitters (URBN), TJX Cos (TJX), Ann Inc (ANN), L Brands (LB), Burlington Stores (BURL), Sears Holdings (SHLD), Williams-Sonoma (WSM) and J Crew Group that he believes the chains are using on-call scheduling and that such practices may be in violation of New York laws.
