16:13 EDTGRUBOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in positive territory and proceeded to tack on gains throughout the morning. Despite a disappointing report on new home sales in July, the S&P surpassed the 2,000 level for the first time before noon. The market pared its gains shortly after the milestone was reached and drifted for the remainder of the session on light volume, as trading activity may be restrained all week ahead of the Labor Day weekend. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed's National Activity index jumped to 0.39 in July from an upwardly revised 0.21 in June. Markit's preliminary August services PMI came in at 58.5, which was down from a prior reading of 60.8 but above the 58.0 consensus projection. New home sales dropped 2.4% to a 412K rate in July, missing expectations for them to have risen to a 430K annualized rate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of InterMune (ITMN) surged $19.05, or 35.41%, to $72.85 after the company agreed to be acquired by Roche (RHHBY) for $74.00 per share in an all-cash transaction. The deal announcement comes less than two weeks after Bloomberg reported that Roche, along with big pharma peers Sanofi (SNY) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), had made takeover bids for the smaller drugmaker. A number of other biotech companies gained following the deal announcement, including bigger names like Gilead (GILD) and Celgene (CELG) and smaller ones such as Achillion Pharmaceuticals (ACHN) and Receptos (RCPT)... Burger King (BKW) shares rose $5.29, or 19.51%, to $32.40 after the company confirmed it is in talks regarding a potential strategic transaction with Canadian donut chain Tim Hortons (THI). Shares of Tim Horton's trading in New York also gained $11.88, or 18.91%, to $74.72 following the confirmation of news first reported by The Wall Street Journal. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the other notable gainers was Advaxis (ADXS), which advanced 75c, or 23.08%, to $4.00 after announcing it has entered into a clinical trial collaboration agreement with Merck (MRK). Also rising were shares of Comtech (CMTL), which jumped $1.70, or 4.84%, to $36.81 after Reuters said the company is working with Citigroup to explore a potential sale. Among the noteworthy losers was Chinese internet and software company Qihoo 360 Technology (QIHU), which fell $7.88, or 7.74%, to $93.87 despite reporting second quarter earnings and revenue that beat analysts' estimates. Also lower were shares of GrubHub (GRUB), which fell $3.60, or 8.42%, to $39.16 after filing to sell 10M shares of common stock. INDEXES: The Dow gained 75.65, or 0.44%, to 17,076.87, the Nasdaq rose 18.80, or 0.41%, to 4,557.35, and the S&P 500 advanced 9.54, or 0.48%, to 1,997.94.

05:16 EDTPCLNPriceline prices $1B senior notes offering
Priceline announced the pricing of $1B principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2021 through a private offering to qualified institutional buyers. The notes will pay interest semiannually at a rate of 0.90% per annum. In certain circumstances, the notes may be converted into cash up to their principal amount, and into shares of Priceline common stock and/or cash at Priceline's election for the conversion value above the principal amount based on a conversion rate of 0.4865 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the notes. Priceline estimates that the net proceeds from the offering of notes will be approximately $990M, after deducting estimated fees and expenses. Priceline plans to use the net proceeds from the offering of the notes to repurchase approximately $147M of its outstanding common stock in privately negotiated, off-market transactions, which may be effected through the initial purchasers of the notes or their affiliates, concurrently with the consummation of the offering. Any remaining net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include repaying outstanding debt, repurchasing additional shares of the company's common stock and corporate acquisitions.
