1:38 pm OM Group: Shareholder SpringOwl Asset Management says it opposes the Apollo (APO) led acquisition of OMG, urges fellow shareholders to vote with them against the deal (OMG) : In a letter to the Board, SpringOwl wrote:

  • "We are writing to express our disappointment not only at the terms of the Apollo Led Buyout that you approved, but also at the wholly-insufficient process which you undertook in reaching these terms.  We intend to vote against your proposed sale.... We are writing to express our disappointment not only at the terms of the Apollo Led Buyout that you approved, but also at the wholly-insufficient process which you undertook in reaching these terms... We do not believe that a fair sales process can be conducted if the Board is simultaneously considering a new written proposal while recommending against it and without providing details of the other offer... SpringOwl believes the remaining FrontFour directors, in conjunction with the existing OMG Board, could derive a superior price to the Apollo Led Buyout price.  By rejecting the Apollo Led Buyout, SpringOwl believes that OMG can work to realize this higher price."

12:58 pm Major averages continue to extend recovery -- S&P -3.7, Dow -50, Nasdaq Comp -37 (:TECHX) : Noted at 10:47 that the S&P had broken below its 200 sma/ema but had support in the 2045/2044 area (The Technical Take). It reached 2044 at 11:35 and stabilized. Mentioned at 11:38 that the index needed to sustain a breach of 2052/2053 to improve the intraday price pattern. It tested and paused at 2052 at 11:45 with the break and hold above extended to 2065 in recent trade. Intraday resistance from here is at 2068 and 2071

12:55 pm Midday Market Summary: Financials and Technology Lag (:WRAPX) : Equity indices trade in negative territory at midday after enduring steady selling through the opening hour of action. A partial rebound has taken place in the recent going, but the S&P 500 remains lower by 0.3% after testing its 200-day moving average (2,055) while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite (-0.8%) underperforms.

Today's opening hour has featured a broad-based retreat in stocks and commodities while the dollar and Treasuries have been on the receiving end of safe-haven flows as another day is set to go by without any progress between Greece and its creditors. The Eurogroup held a brief meeting earlier with Chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem saying the Eurogroup expects that Greece will submit a formal request for a new ESM program tomorrow.

On a separate note, China's Shanghai Composite lost 1.3% in the Tuesday session despite Monday's CNY1.80 trillion liquidity injection from the People's Bank of China. As a result nearly 25% of A-share listings have been halted over the past seven days as companies scramble to protect their market values.

With macroeconomic uncertainty on the rise, commodities have been hit across the board. Crude oil has extended yesterday's decline and is currently lower by 0.9% at $52.05/bbl. Interestingly, the energy sector (+0.4%) has recently turned positive while four of the remaining five cyclical sectors trade in the red.

Notably, top-weighted technology (-0.9%) and financials (-0.9%) continue trading well behind the broader market, and their weakness could prevent the S&P 500 from erasing its loss. High-beta chipmakers have led the tech sector lower with the PHLX Semiconductor Index down 1.7% after Advanced Micro Devices (AMD 2.08, -0.39) lowered its guidance. Shares of AMD are down 15.8% while the PHLX Semiconductor Index is now down 3.2% for the week.

Elsewhere among cyclical sectors, industrials (-0.1%) remain in negative territory, but transport stocks have shown relative strength. The Dow Jones Transportation Average is higher by 0.4% with 11 of its 20 components in the green.

Broadly speaking, countercyclical sectors have shown relative strength with consumer staples (+0.8%), telecom services (+0.1%) and utilities (+2.3%) in the green. The utilities sector has climbed throughout the day thanks to solid gains in the Treasury market that have dropped the benchmark 10-yr yield seven basis points to 2.22%.

Economic data released this morning included Trade Balance and JOLTS:

  • The U.S. trade deficit increased by $1.20 billion in May from April's downwardly revised $40.70 billion (from $40.90 billion) to $41.90 billion while the Briefing.com consensus expected an increase to $42.50 billion

11:50 am Stone Energy provides drilling and production update; Q2 production expected to be at or above previous guidance (SGY) : In the Gulf of Mexico deepwater, operations at the Cardona #6 development well, located in Mississippi Canyon block 29, have been proceeding ahead of schedule and below budget, and drilling has been completed through the targeted zones. The well encountered approximately 288 feet of net pay in two intervals, similar to the Cardona #5 net pay of 275 feet. Analysis of logging and pressure data confirmed the existence of oil in the pay zones. The well has been successfully cased and cemented across all productive zones, the subsea tree has been installed and completion operations have begun. The well will be tied into our existing Cardona subsea infrastructure, which flows into Stone's Pompano platform. It is expected that gross production from Cardona #6 will reach approximately 5,000 Boe per day (65% working interest) from the lower completion by late September.The upper completion is expected to have a similar production rate and will be accessed in the future by hydraulically shifting sleeves between the upper and lower completions. Upon completion of the Cardona #6 well, the ENSCO 8503 deepwater drilling rig will be released for approximately 60 days to receive scheduled maintenance and to be outfitted with mooring capabilities.

  • The rig will then be mobilized to Mississippi Canyon block 26 to finish the completion of the Amethyst discovery (100% working interest). Amethyst will also be tied back to the Pompano platform, where first production is expected early in the first quarter of 2016. Following the Amethyst completion, the rig is currently projected to drill the Cardona #7 development well and the Lamprey deep water exploration prospect. 
  • Production for the second quarter is expected to be at or above the high end of the previous guidance range of 246-258 Mmcfe per day.The increase is a result of reduced scheduled third-party pipeline downtime in the GOM deepwater and flatter than expected production declines in Appalachia. Additional upward revisions in Appalachian production may be realized in the second quarter of 2015 earnings results pending participation elections by Stone's operating partners.

11:02 am Currency Commentary: DXY Hits Highest Level in a Month (:SUMRX) :

  • The Dollar Index is marching higher as it crosses the 97 level. This marks a month high for the dollar. Some safe haven buying is at play here as markets are concerned with the extreme volatility in China and of course the Greek situation. This is leading investors into the greenback until we can find some clarity on key issues. On the economic data front, the trade balance deficit came in slightly lower than expected while the JOLTS- Job Openings number remained steady. The market will be awaiting tomorrow's FOMC Minutes (Wed 2pm) for some clues on the Fed's thoughts on Greece, China and the dollar.
  • The euro has tumbled to 1.0936 in early trade. The uncertainty for Greece continues to weigh on the single currency. There were talks of a deal being cut 48 hours following the referendum but they are showing to be an overly optimistic time line. Today the EU held a meeting to discuss the situation. Members were disappointed that Greece failed to come to the table with a new plan. There is talk that the Greeks will be presenting their outline tomorrow or Wednesday. So the market will remain in the dark. 
  • The pound has been dragged lower as the European situation remains wobbly. The currency is now testing its 2300 sma (1.5417). The Manufacturing and Industrial Production numbers were mixed this morning and are providing little direction for cable. The Bank of England will be meeting on Thursday but there is little expectations in terms of a potential change to the asset purchase program or the rate. 
  • The yen continues to trade in a steady range. Given the volatility and uncertainty it provides us some further evidence that the yen has lost some of its status as a safe haven currency. The yen was seeing some small buying interest following the early selling in the U.S. equity markets. But so far 122 is showing signs of holding support (FOREX, BONDX).

10:30 am DepoMed confirms receipt of unsolicited proposal from Horizon Pharma (HZNP); Board previously reviewed and rejected identical highly conditional, unsolicited proposal (DEPO) : Co confirms that it has received an unsolicited, highly conditional, non-binding proposal from Horizon Pharma (HZNP) to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Depomed in an all-stock transaction valued at $29.25 per share. 

  • Depomed noted that Horizon's Proposal is identical in all material respects to the Horizon proposal received by Depomed on May 27, 2015 and reiterated on June 12, 2015.
  • The Depomed Board, after careful consideration and in consultation with its financial and legal advisors, unanimously determined that it was not in the best interests of Depomed or its shareholders to pursue the Prior Proposal. The Board is confident that continuing to execute on its strategic plan is the best path forward for the Company and its shareholders at this time.
  • In making its determination with respect to the Prior Proposal, the Depomed Board considered a number of factors, including:
    • The Prior Proposal suggests that Depomed shareholders would own only approximately 27% of the combined company. However, Depomed's preliminary analysis shows that the Company's contribution across various metrics such as revenue, EBITDA and unlevered free cash flow would be much greater.
  • Highlights from letter that was sent on June 25, 2015, to Horizon's Chairman:
    • Depomed's transformation has delivered tremendous value to its shareholders, with Depomed's stock price recently reaching an all-time high of $28.16 on April 27, 2015. The Board notes that the Proposal suggests an acquisition premium of approximately 3.9% over such price. Together with Depomed's significant growth opportunities that extend well into the next decade, our Board believes the indicated value of the Proposal of $29.25 substantially undervalues Depomed and its business.
    • The Board strongly believes that an independent Depomed will create significant and sustainable, long-term value for its shareholders through the focused execution of our business plan and strategic vision.
