17:05 EDTSFTBF, GRPN, ENPH, TAP, S, WAG, FOXA, TMUS, TWXOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were nearly unchanged following a session dominated by talk of big name deals that did not happen. The market moved lower in the early going but found a level in the second half hour of trading and began to drift off the bottom. The averages crossed into positive territory about an hour after the opening bell and then spent most of the afternoon drifting. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the trade deficit narrowed to $41.5B in June from a revised $44.7B in May. In Europe, Italian GDP unexpectedly contracted 0.2% in Q2, putting the country into a technical recession, while German manufacturing orders surprised with a 3.2% June drop. COMPANY NEWS: Time Warner (TWX) reported better than expected quarterly profits, but its stock fell $10.95, or 12.85%, to $74.24 after 21st Century Fox (FOXA, FOX) last night announced that it had withdrawn its takeover bid for the parent of HBO, Warner Bros. and other entertainment properties. Class A shares of 21st Century Fox advanced $1.03, or 3.29%, to $32.33 in the wake of the news and the company's announcement of a $6B share repurchase program... Wireless carriers Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS) both fell after multiple media outlets reported that the third largest mobile phone carrier in the U.S. has ended its pursuit of trying to combine with the fourth largest one. Sprint, which also replaced CEO Dan Hesse with Marcelo Claure, the founder and CEO of SoftBank (SFTBF) subsidiary Brightstar, declined $1.38, or 18.96%, to $5.90, while T-Mobile shares slid $2.85, or 8.4%, to $31.06. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was brewer Molson Coors (TAP), which rose $3.87, or 5.76%, to $71.08 after the company's second quarter profits topped expectations. Also higher following its earnings report was Enphase Energy (ENPH), which advanced $1.36, or 14.02%, to $11.06. Among the noteworthy losers was Walgreen (WAG), which dropped $9.91, or 14.34%, to $59.21 after the company exercised its option to acquire the remaining 55% of Alliance Boots that it does not already own but said its purchase of the rest of the U.K.'s Boots will not be a "tax inversion" deal, as many had been expecting. Also lower were shares of Groupon (GRPN), which fell 90c, or 12.72%, to $6.17 after the company reported first quarter revenue that missed expectations and it lowered its fiscal 2014 adjusted EBITDA outlook. INDEXES: The Dow added 13.87, or 0.08%, to 16,443.34, the Nasdaq rose 2.22, or 0.05%, to 4,355.05, and the S&P 500 barely budged, gaining 0.03 to 1,920.24.

DISH (DISH) plans to enter the wireless business in an attempt to become the only provider to offer wireless voice, video and data services, Adam Samson of Yahoo Finance reports, citing an internal document.
