07:36 EDTFDODollar Tree filing shows Family Dollar talks underway before Icahn involvement
A regulatory filing explaining the history of the merger agreement between Dollar Tree (DLTR) and Family Dollar (FDO) showed that, on February 24, a representative of Dollar Tree's financial advisor, JPMorgan, made a telephone call to a representative of Morgan Stanley to express Dollar Tree's interest in discussing a potential business combination transaction with Family Dollar. The filing also states that on June 6 Carl Icahn and certain of his affiliates filed a Schedule 13D disclosing that together they beneficially owned approximately 9.39% of the then-outstanding shares of Family Dollar common stock and that they wished to discuss with Family Dollar its business and strategies to enhance stockholder value. That day, Icahn telephoned Howard Levine, Chairman and CEO of Family Dollar, to discuss the Schedule 13D filing and to express an interest in additional communications with Family Dollar's management regarding the company's current operations and future plans, including potential strategic opportunities and potential business combination transactions. Levine asked Icahn whether he would be willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement and Icahn declined, the filing stated. Additionally on June 6, a member of the board of directors of "Company A" emailed Levine to suggest that they speak. On June 7, Levine and the member of the board of directors of Company A had a telephone conversation, during which the representative of Company A "indicated that Company A would be reluctant to participate in the negotiation of a transaction with Family Dollar if Mr. Icahn were to have a role in or control over the process," the filing states, without identifying Company A. Many, including the Wall Street Journal, have surmised that "Company A" in the filing may refer to Dollar General (DG).

05:47 EDTAAPLApple December quarter margins likely down sequentially, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray says it’s likely that Apple's December quarter margins decline quarter-over-quarter due to the impact of the updated iPhone 6. Piper does not view the potential margin decline as a long-term negative, however, noting that Apple showed with the iPhone 5S that margins can expand as the company moves away from new design launches. Piper says it remains a buyer of Apple shares with an Overweight rating and $105 price target.

11:33 EDTWDAYWorkday rises after reportedly winning record deal with McDonald's
Shares of cloud-based human capital management solution provider Workday (WDAY) are rising after the company is said to have won a deal with global fast food giant McDonald's (MCD) that would be the biggest in its history. WHAT'S NEW: JMP Securities analysts Patrick Walravens and Peter Lowry wrote in a note to investors this morning that the firm's checks indicate that Workday was awarded the human capital management business at McDonald’s, which the analysts said could be the biggest deal in the company’s history. The firm increased its estimate for Workday's Q2 billings to $185M from $182M, noting that both are above the company's guidance of $180M in billing for Q2. JMP maintains its Market Outperform rating and $126 price target on Workday, but the analysts noted that they like the stock over the longer-term, citing its market leading position in the Software-as-a-Service Enterprise Resource Planning space, which is set to triple from 2013 to 2020. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, shares of Workday gained $2.43, or 2.9%, to $86.34.

10:07 EDTAAPLVirnetX says court denies Apple motion in patent suit
VirnetX (VHC) announced that on August 8 the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, issued its patent claim construction, or "Markman" Order and ruled on a VirnetX motion in the ongoing patent infringement action between VirnetX and Apple (AAPL). Both parties had presented arguments on the disputed terms along with various other motions at a Markman hearing on May 20. In the Markman order, the court denied Apple's Motion for Summary Judgment of Indefiniteness, in which Apple alleged that some of the disputed claims terms in the patents asserted by VirnetX were invalid for indefiniteness. In a separate order, the court granted in part and denied in part VirnetX's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment on Apple's Invalidity Counterclaims. The court's order precludes Apple from asserting invalidity as a defense against infringement of the claims that were tried before a jury in VirnetX's prior litigation against Apple. Apple is not precluded from asserting invalidity as a defense against infringement of the claims that were not tried before a jury in the Apple I case. "We are extremely pleased with the court's rulings and we remain confident in the merits of our complaint against Apple," said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President. "We believe the court's Markman Order and motion ruling represents another significant step towards the successful resolution of this litigation."
