17:00 EDTWFMMarket ends week higher after upbeat U.S. data, hint at ECB easing
Stocks finished the week higher and near record levels as several better than expected U.S. economic data points boosted shares. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims, a manufacturing index for October, and factory orders for September all beat expectations. The nonfarm payrolls report showed fewer than expected jobs were added last month, but the figures from the prior two months were upwardly revised... European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said the ECB Governing Council was unanimous in its commitment to use unconventional instruments if needed to boost the euro zone's economy. Meanwhile, some possible "green shoots" emerged in Europe, as France reported that its manufacturing output had risen 0.6% in September versus August. Furthermore, Western European car sales surged 5.5% in October versus the same period a year earlier, Reuters reported, citing industry data. There was, however, some negative news out of Europe, as Germany said that its factory orders had increased just 0.8% in September, following a revised 4.2% slump in August. Economists had expected the orders to jump 2.3%. Also, the European Commission cut its 2014 GDP growth forecast for the EU to 0.8% from its previous forecast for a 1.2% gain. COMPANY NEWS: Tesla (TSLA), Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA), Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), International Paper (IP), Whole Foods (WFM), and upscale accessories and apparel maker Kate Spade (KATE) were among the stocks that climbed following their results. Conversely, multi-level marketer Herbalife (HLF), Priceline (PCLN), Michael Kors (KORS), IT security company FireEye (FEYE), and chip maker Qualcomm (QCOM) fell following their quarterly reports... In takeover news, clinical laboratory company LabCorp (LH) said it would buy drug development services company Covance (CVD) for $105.12 per share in cash and stock, and marketing services company Sapient (SAPE) agreed to be acquired by French advertising giant Publicis (PUBGY) for $25.00 per share in cash... Shares of a number of hospital owners, including Tenet Healthcare (THC), Community Health (CYH), and HCA Holdings (HCA) fell after Republicans won control of the U.S. Senate. Republicans have promised to seek to repeal most parts of the Affordable Care Act, which benefits hospitals by reducing the number of uninsured patients that use their services. Additionally, the Supreme Court today agreed to hear a lawsuit challenging the federal government's right to subsidize the health insurance premiums of Americans who buy health insurance through the federal exchange set up by the Act... The Justice Department sued to block the acquisition of Screenvision, which provides solutions related to cinema advertising, by movie theater ad network National CineMedia (NCMI), sending its stock lower. Movie theater operator Carmike Cinemas (CKEC), which owns a 19% “profits interest" in the holding company for Screenvision, also slid following the news. INDEXES: For the week, the Dow is up 1.04% to 17,573.93, the Nasdaq is up 0.03% to 4,632.53, and the S&P 500 is up 0.66% to 2,031.92.

06:28 EDTPETMPetSmart upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank upgraded PetSmart to Hold citing the recent underperformance of shares and the potential for M&A catalysts. Deutsche continues to see fundamental challenges for PetSmart as it deals with increased online competition. It believes the company could be worth $85 per share in a takeover by Petco, which is owned by private equity firm Leonard Green, and about $70 per share in a non-strategic leverage buyout. It raised its price target for shares to $74 from $60.
