18:13 EDTMMacy's considered, rejected sale/lease-backs in past, WSJ says
Macy's (M) executives have considered sale/lease-backs "over the years" and have come to negative conclusions, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the company. The report comes in the wake of Starboard Value pressuring Macy's to spin off its real estate, and sources said the activist investor sees several options, including a REIT, a Hudsonís Bayís-style real estate partnership, a sale/lease-back, or borrowing money against the properties. Separately, a source said Target (T) is still reluctant to relinquish control over its real estate. Reference Link

16:41 EDTMStocks end week higher as Google, Greece bring out the buyers
Stocks ended the week higher and the major averages are back at record highs after Iran agreed to a nuclear deal, Greece's parliament paved the way for the country to receive another bailout by agreeing to new austerity measures and Google (GOOG) gave investors hope that earnings from tech's other heavyweights will be similarly better than expected. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., retail sales unexpectedly fell 0.3% in June, versus the consensus forecast for growth of 0.3%. The producer prices index showed prices rose 0.4% in June, versus expectations for an increase of 0.2%. The consumer price index rose a seasonally adjusted 0.3% in June from a month earlier, matching the consensus forecast. Compared with last year, consumer prices rose 0.1%, marking the first annual increase since December. Housing starts rose 9.8% to a 1.17M rate in June and building permits rose 7.4% to a 1.34M pace, both of which topped expectations. The NAHB homebuilder sentiment index for July came in at 60, a point better than forecast. The University of Michigan's consumer sentiment reading dropped to 93.3 in the preliminary July figure, which was below the 96.0 reading that was expected.

The nation's GDP was reported to have grown 7% in the second quarter from a year earlier, beating the consensus expectation for growth of 6.8%... In Europe, Greek lawmakers passed the country's austerity agreement and Euro-area finance ministers reportedly agreed in principle to extend a bridge loan to Greece. The loan should help keep Greece afloat while its Prime Minister negotiates the details of the country's latest bailout... Iran reached a deal on restrictions and inspections intended to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions by six world powers. The agreement still faces a political fight in the U.S. before taking effect, but President Barack Obama has vowed to veto any congressional effort to block its implementation.

Wells Fargo (WFC) reported earnings in-line with consensus estimates and revenue somewhat below expectations, while Goldman Sachs (GS) reported headline earnings that appeared to fall far short of the consensus forecast. However, that was due to Goldman's nearly $1.5B in provisions for litigation and regulatory matters. Excluding those provisions, the bank's earnings were ahead of consensus... On the M&A front, Receptos (RCPT) advanced after Celgene (CELG) announced a deal to buy the smaller drugmaker for $232 per share in cash, or a total of about $7.2B net of cash acquired. A number of research firms applauded the deal, especially noting the price Celgene agreed to pay, but cautioned that a rival bidder may still emerge for Receptos. Marathon Petroleum (MPC) gained after MPLX (MPLX), the company's fee-based master limited partnership, agreed to acquire MarkWest Energy (MWE) in a cash and stock deal that implies a total enterprise value for MarkWest of approximately $20B, including the assumption of debt of approximately $4.2B.
