Citigroup believes Intel's (INTC) potential acquisition of Altera (ALTR), as reported Friday by The Wall Street Journal, would be a slight positive for Intel since Altera's business is high-margin and grows faster than the overall semi sector. Citi also believes the deal would potentially improve Xilinx’s (XLNX) competitive positioning since Intel's foundry is experiencing challenges and Altera would likely be stuck with using Intel foundry if it were acquired. The firm keeps a Neutral rating on Intel with a $32 price target.

16:23 EDTINTCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks opened slightly higher but were unable to gather any upside momentum. They quickly crossed into negative territory but never really picked up speed to the downside. After the slightly better than expected consumer confidence reading, the averages moved back into positive ground where they spent most of the session hovering near the flat line. Near the close, comments by Fed Chair Janet Yellen that an interest rate hike "may be warranted later this year," lifted the averages into positive territory. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., real GDP growth was steady at 2.2% in Q4, falling below consensus forecasts for 2.4% growth. GDP price index grew 0.1% on a linked quarter basis, matching expectations. U.S. consumer sentiment fell to 93.0 against consensus of 92.1. The current conditions index dipped to 105.0 from February's 106.9, while the consumer expectations index dropped to 85.3 from 88.0. COMPANY NEWS: Dow Chemical (DOW) and Olin (OLN) were up 3% and 14%, respectively, after announcing that Dow will separate much of its chlorine value chain and merge the entity with Olin in a $5B deal. Additionally, the companies announced a 20-year arrangement in which Dow will supply Olin with ethylene. Late in the session, the Wall Street Journal reported that Intel (INTC) was in talks to acquire Altera (ALTR), sending both stocks higher by 6% and 28%, respectively. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Carnival (CCL), which rose over 6% after beating earnings expectations and raising FY15 revenue yield guidance. Also higher was BioMarin (BMRN), jumping 11% after speculation of a Shire (SHPG) takeover deal. Among the noteworthy losers was Southern Cooper (SCCO), which fell nearly 4% after the company cancelled its Tia Maria mining project. Also lower was OvaScience (OVAS), down 10% after Oppenheimer reported pushback from academics during the company's presentation of early Augment data. Opco cautioned, however, that criticism of non-trial data is "inevitable" and JMP Securities called the results encouraging. INDEXES: The Dow rose 34.43, or 0.19%, to 17,712.66, the Nasdaq gained 27.86, or 0.57%, to 4,891.22, and the S&P 500 added 4.87, or 0.24%, to 2,061.02.

08:40 EDTGOOGFTC responds to recent Google reports, calls claims of impropriety factless
In a statement released yesterday, the Federal Trade Commission responded to recent news regarding its 2012 antitrust investigation of Google. The Commission stated the inadvertently disclosed memo is "only a fraction [of the total documents that were reviewed.] As we stated when the investigation was closed, the Commission concluded that Google’s search practices were not, 'on balance, demonstrably anticompetitive.' Contrary to recent press reports, the Commission’s decision on the search allegations was in accord with the recommendations of the FTC’s Bureau of Competition, Bureau of Economics, and Office of General Counsel. Some of the FTC’s staff attorneys on the investigation raised concerns about several other Google practices. In response, the Commission obtained commitments from Google regarding certain of those practices. Over the last two years, Google has abided by those commitments... On the same day that it closed the search investigation, the Commission settled a complaint alleging that Google’s conduct with regard to certain standard essential patents constituted unfair methods of competition under the FTC Act. The Wall Street Journal article 'Google Makes Most of Close Ties to White House' makes a number of misleading inferences and suggestions about the integrity of the FTC’s investigation. The article suggests that a series of disparate and unrelated meetings involving FTC officials and executive branch officials or Google representatives somehow affected the Commission’s decision to close the search investigation in early 2013. Not a single fact is offered to substantiate this misleading narrative. Finally, we regret the inadvertent disclosure of confidential documents and information in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. We are taking additional steps to ensure that such a disclosure does not occur in the future."

Morgan Stanley (MS) announced in a filing that Ruth Porat, executive VP and CFO, would leave the company on April 30. In a memo, CEO James Gorman says, "After a 28-year career at Morgan Stanley, Ruth Porat has decided to leave the Firm to take on a new role in Silicon Valley and return to her California roots. It is with a heavy heart that we see her go. Ruth joined Morgan Stanley in 1987 and has played a number of key roles at the Firm, from her time leading the tech banking franchise during the Internet boom, to leading the FIG banking team during the financial crisis, then as CFO partnering with the senior team to transform Morgan Stanley for the new regulatory environment.

Jonathan Pruzan, currently Co-Head of the Global Financial Institutions Group in Investment Banking, will be appointed CFO upon Ruth’s departure. Jon joined Morgan Stanley in 1994 and has spent more than 20 years at the Firm working with financial institution clients. He understands the current regulatory environment, having shepherded clients through the Fed’s stress test and CCAR processes. He brings both great technical skill and proven leadership to this new role. Jon has served on the Morgan Stanley/MUFG steering committee since 2013 and will continue to do so. He will join the Firm’s Operating Committee and Management Committee."

ContentGuard Holdings, a subsidiary of Pendrell Corporation (PCO), announced that on Friday, March 20, Judge J. Rodney Gilstrap of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued a 144 page Claim Construction Order in lawsuits ContentGuard filed against several companies who continue to use its patented Digital Rights Management solutions without a license, including Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), DirecTV (DTV), Google (GOOG), HTC, Huawei, Motorola Mobility and Samsung Electronics (SSNLF). In his order, Judge Gilstrap interpreted the language in ContentGuard’s patents in a manner that fully preserves the breadth of ContentGuard’s patented Digital Rights Management technologies. These technologies were developed to enable the distribution of digital media over the Internet and other networks, including cellular and satellite networks, and provide innovative solutions to problems that were once thought to be unsolvable. “We are very pleased with the Court’s ruling,” commented James Baker, ContentGuard’s Vice President for Licensing and Strategic Development. “We believe these claim constructions demonstrate that the online stores defendants provide for buying and renting DRM-protected movies, videos, books, and music and devices that play, run, display or print this DRM-protected content infringe ContentGuard’s pioneering DRM patents.”

Google and other auto makers want to verify safety themselves, but law firm TroyGould and advocacy group Auto Reliability and Safety say third party testing is necessary, while a UC Berkeley transportation expert called the issue an "open question." The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration plans to test the technology "as it emerges... to inform future federal regulation," while the California DMV stated last week it's working quickly but doesn't want to release a premature ruling.
