09:02 EDTAAAlcoa to appoint 3 new directors to board; Elliott to support slate of nominees
Alcoa announced that it will appoint Ulrich "Rick" Schmidt, John C. Plant and Sean O. Mahoney to serve on the company's Board of Directors, effective February 5, 2016. These appointments will further strengthen the company and add valuable aerospace and automotive experience to the Board as Alcoa prepares to separate into two independent companies in the second half of 2016. With these appointments, the Alcoa Board will be expanded to consist of 15 directors. In connection with this announcement, Alcoa and affiliates of Elliott Management, which hold an economic interest in approximately 7.5% of Alcoa's common stock, have entered into an agreement that provides that Elliott will support the company's slate of director nominees at Alcoa's 2016 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. Mahoney will be included with the company's slate of director nominees for election at the Company's 2016 Annual Meeting of Shareholders and will be added to the class of directors whose term expires in 2016. Schmidt and Plant will be added to the class of directors whose terms expire in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Dave Miller, Senior Portfolio Manager at Elliott Management said, "We believe the Company is taking the right steps as it moves forward with its separation. This is a pivotal moment for Alcoa and represents an opportunity to create substantial value for shareholders. We are pleased to have worked constructively with Alcoa and believe that Rick, John and Sean bring relevant experience to the Alcoa Board and the future Value-Add Co." As previously announced, Alcoa plans to separate into two, publicly traded companies in the second half of 2016. The Upstream company will comprise five strong business units that today make up Global Primary Products: Bauxite, Alumina, Aluminum, Cast Products and Energy; the innovation and technology-driven Value-Add company will include the Global Rolled Products, Engineered Products and Solutions, and Transportation and Construction Solutions businesses. As the Company prepares to implement the separation, the Board of Directors will work closely with Alcoa's management team in a comprehensive review of its portfolio, operations, profitability drivers and cost structure, and will update the market at the appropriate time.

After Novartis (NVS) reported weak results for its generics unit, Sandoz, and blamed it on industry trends, Bernstein quotes Mylan (MYL) and Teva (TEVA) as saying that they are seeing only "slight adjustments back to normal levels" from "mildly favorable" results in 2014 and 2015. Bernstein says that Sandoz has lost a number of fairly profitable products and has had fewer approvals than its peers. Bernstein keeps Outperform ratings on Teva and Mylan.

16:40 EDTTEVAOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
The Dow began the session with triple digit gains thanks in part to solid earnings reports from some of America's bellwether corporations and oil prices, which approached $34 a barrel. The market was unable to hold its opening gains and eventually crossed into negative territory. Before the losses became too big the averages reversed and moved back across the flat line. With oil holding onto its gains and closing above $33 a barrel, the averages closed in positive territory ahead of the next barrage of earnings reports. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell to 278,000 last week, versus the expected 281,000 first-time claims. Durable goods orders dropped 5.1% in December, versus expectations for a decrease of 0.7%. The core reading, which removes transportation items, was down 1.2%, versus expectations for a decline of 0.1%. The National Association of Realtors' pending home sales index for December rose 0.1%, versus expectations for it to be up 0.9%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Facebook (FB) surged 15.5% to $109.11 after the social media giant's fourth quarter earnings and revenue beat expectations. A number of Wall Street analysts increased their price targets for the stock following the report, including Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, who hiked his target to a "Street-high" $170 per share. Facebook management made only one mention of macro concerns for the business in 2016, significantly different than Apple's (AAPL) earnings call on Tuesday night, Munster pointed out... Caterpillar (CAT) reported better than expected quarterly earnings, excluding certain items, but its revenue came in below the consensus forecast and the heavy equipment maker warned that it does not anticipate an improvement in the world economy or commodity prices in 2016. The stock, which had declined almost 20% in the last three months prior to this morning's report, rebounded 4.7% to $61.08 after the company jumped over the lowered bar that had been set by bearish analysts... Under Armour (UA), which had similarly been the focus of concern recently for some bearish analysts, posted better than expected results on the top and bottom line and backed its fiscal year revenue forecast, proving its doubters wrong and sending its share rocketing up 22.5% to $84.00. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Intrexon (XON), Inovio (INO) and Cerus (CERS), which gained a respective 10%, 7.6% and 1.4% as the ongoing Zika virus scare brought attention to the companies' efforts fighting the illness. Also higher were SolarCity (SCTY), Sunrun (RUN) and Vivint Solar (VSLR), with the solar stocks jumping 8.5%, 20.5% and 3.6%, respectively, after the California Public Utilities Commission approved new net-metering rules. Meanwhile, Eagle Pharmaceuticals (EGRX) rose 12.2% to $74.44 after announcing commercial availability of its Bendeka injection in partnership with Teva (TEVA). Among the noteworthy losers was Yahoo (YHOO), which lost 3.2% to $28.75 despite a pre-market spike after SpringOwl Asset Management urged the company to seek an investment from a strategic partner. The news was also followed by reports that CEO Marissa Mayer has started restructuring efforts with an "invest/maintain/kill" list, as well as news that Verizon (VZ) denied a report that it had bid for the company's core Internet business. Also lower were OSI Systems (OSIS), Qualcomm (QCOM) and eBay (EBAY), which fell a respective 31.8%, 8.3% and 12.5% following their quarterly earnings reports. INDEXES: The Dow rose 125.18, or 0.79%, to 16,069.64, the Nasdaq gained 38.51, or 0.86%, to 4,506.68, and the S&P 500 advanced 10.41, or 0.55%, to 1,893.36.

09:30 EDTAAElliott boosts activist stake in Alcoa to over 7%
Paul Singer's Elliott Associates boosted its activist stake in Alcoa to 7.4% from the 6.4% position the hedge fund reported on November 23. Elliott, in today's filing with the SEC, reiterated its belief that the spin-off transaction recently announced by Alcoa "will create value substantially above the current share price." The hedge fund seeks to "engage in a constructive dialogue" with the company's board and management regarding the transaction "as well as a number of other additional available opportunities to maximize shareholder value."
