    Fitch upgrades Greece's debt one notch to B-

    Fitch Ratings late Friday upgraded its rating on Greece's sovereign debt one notch to B-, from CCC, with a positive outlook, saying that country's economy is "gradually recovering" and public finances are improving. The country's debt sustainability "will steadily improve," underpinned by on-going compliance with the terms of the European Stability Mechanism program, and reduced political risk, sustained GDP growth, and additional fiscal measures to take effect through 2020, Fitch said in a statement. The B-rating is "highly speculative." Greece last month returned to the bond market for the first time since 2014, selling 3 billion euros of five-year bonds, on offer that was oversubscribed. Ratings agency Moody's Investors Service in June also upgraded Greece's debt. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Matson's stock suffering biggest-ever selloff after new competition concerns prompt downgrades

    Shares of shipping company Matson Inc. were suffering the biggest selloff since they started trading in January 1972, amid concerns over a new competitor to its West Coast-to-Hawaii shipping business. The stock's price drop of $7.09, or 24%, was shaving about 43 points off the Dow Jones Transportation Average , which was up 3 points in midday trade. The selloff topped the previous record of the $6.76, or 16.2%, drop on Nov. 8, 2016, according to FactSet data. TOTE Inc. announced Thursday plans to establish a new domestic shipping service to Hawaii, with plans to use new environmentally advanced containerships in 2020. Stephens Inc. analyst Jack Atkins downgraded Matson to equal weight from overweight and slashed his stock price target to $23 from $36, citing competition concerns in Matson's core shipping lane. "If it materializes, we think this could be a material headwind to profitability and, as such, we would anticipate significant multiple contraction for MATX in the interim and an extended period of volatility and uncertainty for the stock," Atkins wrote in a note to clients. Wells Fargo's Michael Webber downgraded Matson to underperform from market perform and cut his target to $22 from $35. The stock has tumbled 37% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 8.8%.

    Walt Disney Co. TV network ABC said on Wednesday it's signed a multi-year deal with former "Lost" co-showrunner Carlton Cuse to create and produce new shows across all network, cable and streaming platforms.

"Forming a partnership with a writer/producer/director as talented and prolific as Carlton Cuse is a major victory for ABC Studios," president of ABC Studios Patrick Moran said in a statement. The Hollywood Reported wrote that the deal is said to be a worth more than $20 million, plus a percentage of the back-end on programming created under the partnership. Cuse spent six years at ABC with "Lost" and has since created shows such as "Bates Motel" and "The Strain." His current show "The Colony" was recently renewed for a second season on USA, and he also wrote the screenplay for "San Andreas," starring Dwayne Johnson. This new partnership comes as Disney gears up to launch its own stand alone streaming service to house its content by 2019. "I am very excited to be working alongside wonderful and iconic Disney brands like Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm to create and bring entertaining and compelling stories to the screen." Cuse said in a statement. "The very best part of my job is working with other writers to come up with cool ideas, solve story problems and get stories made." Shares of Disney are down 2% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 index is up more than 10%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Cinema stocks continue to suffer as AMC shares fall nearly 5%

    Shares of cinema chain AMC Entertainment Holding Inc. were down as much as 4.8% during intraday trade on Thursday. The stock's move led a selloff in the cinema group, with Regal Entertainment Group , Cinemark Holdings Inc. , Marcus Corp. and Imax Corp. were all down nearly 2%. There was no news to point to for the share moves, but cinema stocks, and AMC in particular, have had a rough go of it recently as poor box office returns have dominated headlines, dragging down quarterly earnings and threats of shrinking theatrical windows and digital disruption continue to loom. Earlier this week, Walt Disney Co. , which has for a long time steered clear of certain streaming shifts, said it plans to launch its own standalone streaming service for its content in 2019 and end its current licensing deal with Netflix Inc. . "The industry is facing several issues, which is causing people to question the cyclical vs. structural issues for the industry," wrote MKM analyst Eric Handler in an email. Also this week AMC said it was selling its 50% ownership stake in Oscar-winning production studio Open Road Films, which it co-owned with Regal Entertainment. The sale was part of the theater chain's plan to monetize some of its assets and cut cost to combat box office volatility. Shares of AMC have declined more than 56% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 index is up nearly 10%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Disney, Goldman stocks exact steeper toll than North Korea on Dow

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average is being weighed down by a steep drop in shares of Walt Disney Co., and Goldman Sachs Group Inc., in early trade Wednesday. Disney's shares were contributing to a 35-point slump in the price-weighted blue-chip equity gauge, representing the lion's share, or more than half, of the benchmark's early morning retreat. Goldman's stock , meanwhile, was sapping about 12 points from the Dow. All totaled, the pair exacted a nearly 50-point toll on the blue-chip average. Wall Street also is reacting to a flare-up in military tensions after North Korea threatened to launch a missile strike aimed at U.S. territory Guam, underlining deteriorating relations between Washington and Pyongyang. Still, the majority of the slide in the Dow appeared to be largely pegged to Disney's late-Tuesday announcement, along with quarterly earnings, that it would launch an ESPN streaming service in 2018 and a direct-to-consumers offering in 2019, as it ends its distribution deal with Netflix Inc. . Overall, the Dow was off 50 points, or 0.2%, at 22,035, while the S&P 500 index was trading 0.2% lower at 2,469, and the Nasdaq Composite Index was 0.5% lower at 6,340. Mounting political tensions have cast a downbeat shadow over markets but the decline so far appears to be relatively muted.
