12:33 EDTFIATY, GMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher to begin the day, as reports spurred optimism that a ceasefire agreement between Russia and the Ukraine may soon be reached. The move was short lived, as the averages turned mixed during the second hour of trading. Shares of Apple (AAPL) are weighing down the Nasdaq after an analyst recommended investors take some profits in the stock. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., factory orders rose 10.5% in July, which was a bit below the forecast for 11.0% growth. The Fed's Beige Book is scheduled to be released at 2:00 pm ET. In Europe, the final reading of Eurozone services PMI was knocked down to 53.1 from a preliminary 53.5 reading, mirroring the lowering of the Eurozone manufacturing PMI reading yesterday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple retreated 4% after research firm Pacific Crest advised investors to take some profits in the stock. Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves forecast the percentage of new iPhone users who buy the next version of the device beyond the iPhone 6 is likely to decline versus prior cycles. The stock likely has only limited room to increase, according to Hargreaves, who said he would probably downgrade Apple unless new products that can generate billions of dollars in new operating profit are launched at its September 9 event... Carmakers reported on August vehicle sales in the U.S., with Chrysler (FIATY) reporting a 20% increase, Ford stating that sales rose slightly compared to the prior year and General Motors (GM) posting a 1.2% decline in sales. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Infinity Pharmaceuticals (INFI), which jumped 46% after the company announced a cancer drug collaboration with AbbVie (ABBV) and a master clinical supply agreement with Roche (RHHBY). Also higher was Mobileye (MBLY), which gained nearly 10% after Morgan Stanley wrote that the stock could rise "towards $100" if the company maintains its current market, gross margins and earnings position. Mobileye is scheduled to report on its second quarter results tomorrow morning, which will be its first quarterly report since its August IPO. Among the noteworthy losers was Repros Therapeutics (RPRX), which dropped 15% after newly posted FDA briefing documents regarding a panel on T-normalizing therapies prompted Piper Jaffray to downgrade the stock to Neutral from Overweight. Also lower following its earnings report was apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell 11%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 33.71, or 0.2%, to 17,101.27, the Nasdaq was down 23.24, or 0.51%, to 4,574.95, and the S&P 500 was down 0.64, or 0.03%, to 2,001.64.

09:02 EDTBPHalliburton reaches $1.1B settlement on claims related to Macondo
Halliburton (HAL) announced that it has reached an agreement to settle a substantial majority of the plaintiffsí class claims asserted against the company as a result of the April 20, 2010 Macondo well incident in the Gulf of Mexico. The approximately $1.1B settlement, which includes legal fees, is subject to approval by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, and will be paid into a trust until all appeals have been resolved in three installments over the next two years. The companyís previously accrued loss contingency provision relating to the multi-district litigation proceedings is currently $1.3B. The agreement includes the following: Claims against Halliburton that BP (BP) assigned to the settlement class in BPís April 2012 settlement, Punitive damages claims against Halliburton by a class of plaintiffs who allege damages to property or associated with the commercial fishing industry arising from the Deepwater Horizon Incident, and Affirmation that Halliburton has no liability for compensatory damages to the members of the settlement class in the BP April 2012 settlement. Payments will be held in the trust, pending the finalization of this settlement which is contingent on final Court approval, including any appeals of: The BP 2012 settlement with the settlement class, The District Courtís earlier determination that the contractual indemnity provided by BP to Halliburton is valid and enforceable, and The District Courtís earlier dismissal of economic damage claims against Halliburton. Additionally, the settlement is subject to an agreed-upon level of participation by the current claimants which, if not achieved, allows Halliburton to terminate the agreement.
