16:25 EDTVZOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session deep in negative territory, as fears about the health of one of Portugalís largest banks, coupled with weak economic data out of Italy, prompted a sell-off in Europe, which spilled over to the U.S. The major averages moved generally higher after the open, though the early losses proved too much to overcome. The reignited fears about Europe's periphery come just as the U.S. corporate earnings season is set to pick up in earnest next week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims dropped 11K to 304K in the week ended July 5. Wholesale inventories rose 0.5% in May, while sales edged up 0.7%, which were both a little below expectations. In Europe, concerns about the periphery rose again as the parent company of Portugal's Espirito Santo bank missed a debt payment, leading the country's interest rates higher and equities in the Eurozone lower. Also, Italy's industrial output saw its steepest monthly fall since late 2012, having dropped 1.2% in May. In China, trade performance improved in June but still missed market forecasts. Exports rose 7.2% in June from a year earlier, missing the consensus forecast for a rise of 10.6%, while imports grew 5.5% in the month, versus the 5.8% growth expectation. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Verizon (VZ) advanced 74c, or 1.51%, to $49.64 to lead the handful of gainers on the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The rise came after Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam said in an interview on CNBC that his company added over 1.4M postpaid subscribers in Q2, with "record" tablet growth and "very strong" smartphone growth. Afterward, Wells Fargo said in a note to investors that the net adds were higher than the firm's recently increased estimate and above Street consensus... Conversely, Home Depot (HD) was the Dow's worst performer, falling $1.33, or 1.65%, to $79.40. After hardwood floors retailer Lumber Liquidators (LL) and farm products retailer Tractor Supply (TSCO) pre-announced weaker than expected Q2 results, Deutsche Bank analyst Mike Baker reduced his estimates for Home Depot and peer Lowe's (LOW), explaining that the comparative sales of those two large home improvement retailers have historically had a positive correlation with those of Tractor Supply and Lumber Liquidators. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was AmREIT (AMRE), which rose $3.25, or 16.93%, to $22.45 after Regency Centers (REG) offered to acquire the company for $22 per share, payable in cash and/or stock. Also higher was Cray (CRAY), which rallied $4.27, or 15.69%, to $31.49 after the company announced it has been awarded a $174M supercomputer deal from the National Nuclear Security Administration. Among the noteworthy losers was sandwich maker Potbelly (PBPB), which plunged $3.68, or 25.12%, to $10.97 after the company's second quarter and fiscal 2014 outlook fell significantly short of analysts' consensus estimates. Also lower was Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), which sunk $3.35, or 12.94%, to $22.54 after the company announced data through week 144 from its eteplirsen study in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. INDEXES: The Dow dropped 70.54, or 0.42%, to 16,915.07, the Nasdaq fell 22.83, or 0.52%, to 4,396.20, and the S&P 500 declined 8.15, or 0.41%, to 1,964.68.

07:14 EDTCMCSAAereo seeks to survive as cable system, WSJ says
Following its Supreme Court loss, Aereo is now arguing that it should be classified as a cable system and receive a compulsory license that would give it legal access to content and allow it to continue operating, reported The Wall Street Journal. Television broadcasters that own the copyrights in many of the programs that Aereo streams, including CBS (CBS), Disney (DIS), 21st Century Fox (FOXA), and Comcast (CMCSA), successfully sued the service for copyright infringement. In addition to Comcast, publicly-traded cable companies include Time Warner Cable (TWC), Cablevision (CVC), and Charter (CHTR). Reference Link
