Xerox (XRX) announced today that shareholders approved its proposal to adopt the merger agreement pursuant to which Xerox expects to implement a holding company reorganization. The final voting results for the annual meeting will be reported in a Form 8-K that Xerox will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Following the closing, it is expected that the common stock of the holding company will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under Xerox’s current trading symbol, “XRX.” In addition, to eliminate duplicative administrative requirements and costs, Xerox has notified NYSE Chicago that it intends to voluntarily delist Xerox common stock from trading on NYSE Chicago immediately prior to completion of the holding company reorganization.
Activist investor Carl Icahn added to his stake in Conduent Inc. after the chief executive announced his retirement last week, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The business-services company, which was spun off into its own entity after Icahn engaged in a battle with previous owner Xerox Corp. , saw shares spin nearly 40% lower in a single session last week, after its CEO resigned while offering a poor quarterly earnings report. According to a filing with the SEC, Icahn immediately began adding to his position the day after that decline, May 10, and purchased nearly 4 million shares at an average price of $8.35 for a total stake of nearly 29 million shares, or 13.7% of the company. Icahn affiliate Michael Nevin left Conduent's board in April and issued a public letter condemning other directors as well as CEO Ashok Vemuri, who is resigning. Conduent shares gained 2.8% to $8.52 Monday.
Former Aetna CEO Ron Williams says Ursula Burns will be key to the company's public company success.
It was back and forth all day long on Wednesday, but when all was said and done, neither side could make a solid commitment. The S&P 500's loss of 0.16% left it at 2,879.42, or right in the middle of its daily range. A key technical floor remains intact.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)The modest day for the market doesn't mean all stocks saw modest moves. Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) popped more than 3%, shrugging off a first-quarter revenue miss when all other metrics came in strong. Match Group (NASDAQ:MTCH) rallied a little more than 12% thanks to last quarter's impressive subscriber growth.At the other end of the spectrum, Tripadvisor (NASDAQ:TRIP) tumbled more than 11% on Wednesday, while ADT (NYSE:ADT) fell almost as much. Last quarter's decline in the number of unique visitors at Tripadvisor's sites spooked investors, and ADT booked a surprising loss during Q1.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Great Stocks to Buy on Dips None of those names are particularly great trading setups headed into Thursday's trading though. Rather, it's the stock charts of Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE:VNO), Xerox (NYSE:XRX) and Cboe Global Markets (BATS:CBOE) that offer the most potential. Here's why, and what to look for. Cboe Global Markets (CBOE)Cboe Global Markets may have gotten a slow start to the year, but things perked up in a big way last month. In fact, the big move carried CBOE stock above a couple of key lines that so far appear to be catalytic. And the budding uptrend was confirmed last week when the bears tried to quell the rally but the bulls held the line right where they should have. Click to Enlarge * Since late last year, Cboe Global Markets shares were squeezed into the tip of a converging wedge pattern that finally broke in April via the move above resistance levels of $98.44 and $99.52. * The cross above the white 200-day moving average line last month petered out, but when CBOE stock peeled back last week, the 200-day moving average became a springboard to push the rally to higher highs. * Zooming out to the weekly chart we can see this rally effort was built up gradually, leading to a bullish MACD cross as well as the Chaikin line's cross above zero. The slow pace of these clues means the advance is sustainable. Vornado Realty Trust (VNO)It arguably has more to do with REITs in general than Vornado Realty Trust in particular. Nevertheless, there's a budding downtrend in the works that's actually just part of a longer-term downtrend. One more slip-up could push VNO over the edge of the cliff, so to speak, and a few too many of the most telling signs are saying the chart is fighting a losing battle. * 7 Tips for New Investors Young and Old Click to Enlarge * The line in the sand is $65.88, plotted in yellow on both stock charts. That floor touches all the key lows since March, including yesterday's low. * The sellers are starting to come out of the woodwork too, in earnest. The volume behind the selling was seen in just the past few days and it is well above average … more may be waiting to see if things are going to worsen. * Fueling the weakness is repeated resistance at the white 200-day moving average line. Each recent instance is highlighted in blue. Traders have good reason for their doubts. Xerox (XRX)Finally, Xerox had a great showing during the first four months of the year, but it may have traveled too far, too fast. Now feeling the weight of that big advance, cracks are starting to form. A key floor has yet to snap, but other important support levels have already crumbled. And, traders' interest has turned bearish … not just waning bullishness. Click to Enlarge * As of Wednesday, XRX is back at a near-term support line that lines up all the lows since March. That's plotted in white on the daily chart. * Traders are starting to take profits in earnest too. Within the past three weeks, the highest volume days have not only been bearish ones, that volume has been above average. * Although not yet under straight-line support, Wednesday's weakness dragged Xerox below the purple 50-day moving average line. That's a start to a pullback.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

When you evaluate dividend stocks, what do you typically look at? Chances are, dividend yield is a big part of the equation, though many investors also know to look at dividend growth. But what about dividend health?Dividend stocks with risky, difficult-to-sustain payouts can be a drag on retirement portfolios. For one, companies that no longer have the financial means to grow the dividend likely are struggling to grow the business, which may be reflected in weak stock returns. Plus, if a dividend is slowly growing or stagnant, it loses purchasing power to inflation every year, essentially become worth less and less over time. The worst-case scenario - a dividend cut - could leave you without much-needed retirement income.Dividend health clearly matters. But how do you measure it?One emerging solution is the DIVCON system from exchange-traded fund provider Reality Shares. DIVCON - the first forward-looking dividend health methodology - measures payout sustainability based on several fundamental factors that include earnings growth, free cash flow (how much cash companies have left over after they meet all their obligations), money spent on buybacks and even the Altman Z-score - a metric that helps determine a company's likelihood of a bond default or bankruptcy. The result is a score between 1 and 5: DIVCON 5 indicates a very healthy dividend with a high likelihood of future growth, while DIVCON 1 indicates a shaky income foundation that implies little to no growth - and even the risk of a dividend cut.Here are five dividend stocks with risky payouts, according to the DIVCON system. All five stocks have DIVCON 1 or DIVCON 2 scores. Let's explore what specifically makes these dividends look shaky. SEE ALSO: 17 Retailers at Risk of Defaulting or Going Bankrupt
Xerox Corp. shares were inactive in premarket trading Thursday after the company topped earnings estimates and raised its full-year profit forecast but came in a bit shy on first-quarter revenue.
