12:34 EDTVOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday as concern over the Ukraine crisis overshadowed an upward revision to the government's estimate of U.S. economic growth in the second quarter. The major averages began the session in negative territory and picked up downside momentum in early trading, but soon after began to drift off their lows and recapture some of their losses. Volume remains light, as is expected ahead of the upcoming long weekend. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Q2 GDP growth was unexpectedly boosted to 4.2% from the first estimate of 4.0%. Personal consumption rose 2.5% during the second quarter, versus estimates for a 2.4% increase. Initial jobless claims ticked down slightly to 298K in the fourth week of August. Pending home sales index increased 3.3% in July, which was better than the 0.5% month-over-month increase that was expected. In Europe, Ukraine president Poroshenko reportedly accused Russia of a "de facto" invasion and canceled a trip to call an urgent meeting of his security and defense council. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Visa (V) declined 1% after Raymond James lowered its rating on the credit card giant's stock to Market Perform from Outperform. The Dow component faces a number of headwinds, including tougher negotiating tactics by larger international banks looking to win better deals, lower cross-border volume, and loss of processing revenue in Russia, wrote Raymond James analyst Wayne Johnson. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Repros Therapeutics (RPRX), which jumped 20% after the first of two identical pivotal studies comparing Androxal to an FDA approved topical gel and placebo achieved superiority in both co-primary endpoints and Piper Jaffray hiked its price target on the stock to $33 from $26. Also higher was Signet Jewelers (SIG), which rose nearly 7% after reporting Q2 results that analysts at Sterne Agee called "impressive." Among the noteworthy losers were a number of retailers who dropped after reporting results from their most recent fiscal quarters. Shares of home goods retailer William-Sonoma (WSM) dropped 11%, jeans maker Guess (GES) fell 9%, and apparel retailer Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) slipped more than 4%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 33.92, or 0.2%, to 17,088.09, the Nasdaq was down 4.52, or 0.1%, to 4,565.11, and the S&P 500 was down 2.04, or 0.1%, to 1,998.08.

09:09 EDTTIVivendi confirms exclusive talks with Telefonica to acquire GVT
Vivendi (VIVHY), as previously disclosed, received binding offers from Telefonica (TEF) on August 4 and 28 and Telecom Italia (TI) on August 28 to acquire GVT. "In the light of the Groupís strategy and in the best interests of its shareholders, the Supervisory Board decided to enter into exclusive negotiations with Telefonica while emphasizing the relevance and quality of the Telecom Italia offer. The divestment from GVT would allow selling the last telecom company wholly-owned by Vivendi after the disposals of Maroc Telecom and SFR. Telefonicaís offer is considered particularly attractive, generating a capital gain of more than EUR 3B. The other conditions of the offer, limiting to a strict minimum the risk of executing the operation as well as Vivendiís commitments after the sale, are totally in line with Vivendiís objectives. The agreement between Telefonica and Vivendi would allow the development of joint projects in ​​content and media. In addition, if it so wish, Vivendi could become a shareholder in Telecom Italia by exchanging its Brazilian shares for Italian ones. The Telefonica offer best meets the Groupís strategic and financial objectives," Vivendi stated.
