11:45 EDTFOXA, FOX, SNI, DISCA, AMCX, VIA, VIAB, CBS, TWXMedia stocks rally after Time Warner rejects Fox bid
Media stocks are rallying after Time Warner (TWX) confirmed that it rejected an offer made by 21st Century Fox (FOXA, FOX) to combine the media giants. WHAT'S NEW: Both Time Warner and 21st Century Fox confirmed an earlier CNBC report that Time Warner rejected an $80B takeover offer from 21st Century Fox. Time Warner said it turned down Fox's offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of the company for a combination of 1.531 of Twenty-First Century Fox Class A non-voting common shares and $32.42 in cash per share. Time Warner added that its board is confident that continuing to execute its strategic plan will "create significantly more value for the company and its stockholders and is superior to any proposal that Twenty-First Century Fox is in a position to offer." 21st Century Fox also confirmed that it made a formal proposal to Time Warner, which was rejected, and added that the companies are not currently in any discussions. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Time Warner advanced 16.5% to $82.70, while Twenty-First Century Fox class A shares are down 5% to $33.45. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other media stocks were trading higher after the news. Discovery Communications (DISCA) rose 6%, Scripps Networks Interactive (SNI) gained 3%, AMC Networks (AMCX) added 3.2%, Viacom class B shares (VIAB) increased 4% and CBS (CBS) advanced 1.5%.

17:10 EDTTWX, FOXA, FOXMarket finishes week up slightly as earnings offset by political events
Stocks finished the week fractionally higher than where they started as strong corporate earnings reports and better than expected economic data was weighed against concerns about geopolitical issues and negative M&A news. MACRO NEWS: A few ongoing geopolitical conflicts worried investors and weighed on shares. Russia unveiled sanctions against Western countries, banning the import of a wide range of food items from the U.S, the EU and a few allied countries in response to sanctions recently enacted against it from G7 nations... President Obama authorized the bombing of rebels in Iraq and Hamas and Israel failed to reach a permanent truce... An ISM services index, the U.S. trade deficit for June, and weekly jobless claims were all better than expected. Meanwhile, the increase in unit labor costs last quarter came in below the consensus outlook, perhaps easing fears that the Fed will need to raise interest rates sooner than expected. COMPANY NEWS: On the M&A front, two huge potential deals fell through as 21st Century Fox (FOX, FOXA) withdrew its offer to acquire Time Warner (TWX) and Sprint (S) reportedly decided to end its pursuit of a merger with peer T-Mobile (TMUS)... President Obama indicated that his administration would take unilateral steps in an effort to prevent companies from carrying out tax inversion acquisitions. Among the deals or possible transactions that involve inversion are Medtronic's (MDT) acquisition of Covidien (COV), Valeant's (VRX) proposed takeover of Allergan (AGN) and Mylan's (MYL) acquisition of Abbott's (ABT) developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals business. Meanwhile, Walgreen's (WAG) stock tumbled after the U.S. company said it would not structure its takeover of European drugstore chain Alliance Boots as a tax inversion deal... 21st Century Fox, 3D printer maker Stratasys (SSYS), chip maker NVIDIA (NVDA), brewer Molson Coors (TAP), and luxury accessories maker Coach (COH) all rose following their earnings reports. Conversely, Target (TGT), luxury accessories maker Michael Kors (KORS) and Internet coupon provider Groupon (GRPN) fell following their results or guidance... Gannett (GCI) struck a deal to acquire the remaining 73% interest in Classified Ventures, whose primary asset is the online car shopping website Cars.com, for $1.8B from the other partners in the venture, which include McClatchy (MNI), Tribune Media (TRBAA), Graham Holdings (GHC) and A. H. Belo (AHC). Gannett also announced plans to spin-off its Publishing business, which includes USA Today, through a tax-free distribution to shareholders... McDonald's (MCD) stock was little changed after the company reported that its comparable store sales fell 2.5% in July, which was significantly worse than expected. Food quality issues weighed on the fast food company's sales in Asia and as a result of the China supplier issue, the company warned its previously issued global comparable sales forecast for 2014 is now at risk. INDEXES: The Dow finished the week up 0.35% to 16,553.93, the S&P 500 rose 0.32% to 1,931.59, and the Nasdaq gained 0.41% to 4,370.90.
