12:32 EDTFIO, SIG, SHLD, AYI, MDCO, CY, MONOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower again at midday as investors shift their focus from the fiscal cliff to the fourth-quarter earnings season, set to unofficially kick off after the closing bell when Dow component Alcoa (AA) reports. Expectations for the earnings season are muted, with S&P 500 companies forecast to post earnings growth of just 2.8% for the quarter, according to Thomson Reuters. Profit-growth estimates were sharply reduced from the expected growth rate of 9.2% called for at the end of September, according to FactSet. The averages have drifted lower on fairly light volume, indicating a lack of buying rather than intense selling, as investors may be content to wait to see how the earnings season develops before stepping back in... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NFIB small-business-optimism index rose to 88.0 in December from 87.5 in November. In Europe, zone-wide unemployment hit a new record rate of 11.8% in November, though the European Commission also separately reported that its December Economic Sentiment Indicator improved by 1.3 points in the euro area, to 87.0, and remained generally unchanged at 88.4 in the broader EU. In Asia, Japan said it will use its foreign reserves to continue to buy bonds issued by the European Stability Mechanism to help weaken the yen... COMPANY NEWS: Sears Holdings (SHLD) said late Monday that CEO Louis D’Ambrosio will step down due to family health reasons and be replaced in that role by Eddie Lampert, its chairman of the board and largest shareholder. Sears also forecast adjusted earnings for Q4 that beat consensus expectations but shares fell about 5% near noon... Among companies reporting earnings after yesterday's close or before today's open, Monsanto (MON) advanced and Acuity Brands (AYI) declined... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were The Medicines Company (MDCO), up 11% after announcing results for a Phase 3 trial of one of its drugs, and Signet Jewelers (SIG), up 9% after reporting its holiday season same-store sales rose 3.3% and issuing earnings guidance. Among the noteworthy losers were Cypress Semiconductor (CY), down 9% after cutting its Q4 earnings forecast, and Fusion-io (FIO), which fell 8% after William Blair downgraded the stock to Market Perform... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 68.23, or 0.51%, to 13,316.06; the Nasdaq was down 15.69, or 0.51%, to 3,083.12; and the S&P 500 was down 7.46, or 0.51%, to 1,454.43.

08:04 EDTCYCypress Semiconductor sends updated proposal to Integrated Silicon
Cypress Semiconductor (CY) sent an updated proposal to Integrated Silicon (ISSI). In the letter to the Executive Chairman of the Board of Integrated Silicon, Cypress said, "I trust that the ISSI Board of Directors now understands that Cypress Semiconductor places strategic, not just financial, value on the acquisition of ISSI. Of course, you have known of this strong and unwavering interest, given your personal dialogues with us over the last year. As we said in those meetings, we believe that the transaction would benefit not only ISSI shareholders, but also ISSI customers due to the increased breadth and strategic capabilities of the product offerings of the combined companies; for example, to provide and warranty all the memory types needed to implement an automotive embedded system. With that vision unchanged, Cypress is increasing its offer to acquire ISSI to $22.25 per share, while maintaining its previously outlined ticking fee of $0.10 per share per quarter beginning October 1, 2015. Additionally, Cypress will put into escrow through our lawyers today a merger agreement pre-negotiated with ISSI and signed by me to further demonstrate our sincerity and strong commitment to closing this transaction. This Cypress proposal is clearly superior to an Uphill proposal at the same price per share, given our inclusion of a ticking fee and our mitigation of regulatory risk."
