Internal discord from the perceived betrayal of the voters that swept the anti-austerity govt into power was coming into focus over the weekend. Greece Minister for administrative reform Katrougalos said the question over rehiring of thousands of dismissed civil servants should not be up to negotiation. Meanwhile, Germany's ruling CDU party official said the 4-month extension of aide will be approved "if Greece does its homework". Likewise, Ireland Fin Min Noonan, who was among the critics of granting Greece exemption from austerity, said: "They're now compromising and compromising quite significantly... All that has been agreed is a process which allows them to continue with a programme along the lines of the programme they have already." Greece govt planned to submit a list of reforms to euro zone finance ministers on Monday, and Fin Min Varoufakis has indicated he does not expect the pledges to be rejected, preventing the need for another Eurogroup summit.- US State Sec Kerry threatened the possibility of additional sanctions on Russia if there was no deescalation of continued violence in east Ukraine. After taking Debaltseve, rebel forces are potentially setting their sights on the southern city of Mariupol amid reports of mobilization of motorized vehicles and tanks across the border. German Foreign Min Steinmeier said the advance by pro-Russian rebels on Mariupol would be a clear breach of the ceasefire agreement, though Ukraine military officials also noted both sides have signed to begin withdrawing heavy weapons all along the frontline. Recall on Friday, Moody's joined S&P in cutting Russia sovereign rating to junk status due to continuing crisis in Ukraine and falling oil prices.- BOJ Gov Kuroda signaled Japan central bank would consider changing the timing of meeting the 2% inflation target amid deeper than expected slide in oil prices. Longer term, however, Kuroda saw lower oil benefiting the economy by boosting spending and thereby pushing up inflation, reiterating Japan has continued its gradual recovery. BOJ minutes for Jan 20-21st largely reflected that sentiment, noting oil price swings could have large impact on CPI, but economy is gradually recovering and exports would pick up due to stronger external demand and weaker yen. Separately, a Nikkei survey also noted 72% of companies in Japan see no need for further BOJ policy easing. - USD majors were little changed in Asian trading continued to be constrained by low post-holiday volume. USD/JPY was down about 20pips around 118.90, EUR/USD traded in a 40pip range below 1.14, and AUD/USD fell just over 10pips below 0.7830.***Equities***US markets: - SLXP: Valeant confirms to acquire Salix Pharmaceuticals For $158.00 Per Share In Cash ($10B)- VRX: Reports Q4 $2.58 v 2.57e, R$2.28B v $2.23Be- FOXA: Said to have held preliminary merger talks to acquire Discovery Communications, creating a $100B entity - AFR- DIS: Raises ticket prices for Disneyland theme parks in US, effective immediately - press- LMT: Israel Defense Ministry: To purchase 14 F-35 stealth fighters at about $110M each; Total deal at $2.82B including technological and training elements - press- HLSS: New Residential Enters into Definitive Agreement to Acquire HLSS for $18.25/shr or $1.3BNotable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: Vocation Ltd VET.AU -44% (to take writedown); Park24 4666.JP -1.0% (speculation on 9-month results); Prada 1913.HK +3.6% (prelim FY14 results)- Financials: Aspen Group APZ.AU +2.0% (H1 results)- Materials: Bluescope Steel Ltd BSL.AU -8.3% (H1 results); MACA Ltd MLD.AU +8.3% (H1 results); Base Resources BSE.AU -4.0% (H1 results); Bluescope Steel Ltd BSL.AU -8.5% (H1 results); Yokohama Rubber 5101.JP +2.3% (announces shares buyback)- Energy: AusTex Oil Ltd AOK.AU -7.7% (prelim reserve report); Beach Energy BPT.AU -1.8% (H1 results)- Industrials: MacMahon Holdings MAH.AU -33.9% (concludes operations at Christmas Creek); Downer EDI DOW.AU +1.4% (awarded contract); UGL Ltd UGL.AU -7.1% (H1 results); Boart Longyear BLY.AU +10.0% (H1 results); Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corp 4188.JP +2.7% (to build plan in US); Takata Corp 7312.JP -2.5% (fined by US regulator)- Technology: oOh!media OML.AU +1.6% (FY14 results); Brambles Limited BXB.AU -1.0% (H1 results); TDK Corp 6762.JP +2.2% (targets to raise sales of sensors)- Healthcare: Sosei Group Corp 4565.JP +4.8% (acquisition); Terumo Corp 4543.JP +1.6% (speculation on FY14/15 results) - Source
