Alderwoods Group (AWGI) surged on news that the Cincinnati-based funeral home operator had signed a definitive agreement with Service Corporation International (SCI) where SCI will acquire all of Alderwoods Group's outstanding shares for $20 a share in cash in a deal valued at $856 million.

About $374 million of Alderwoods Group's debt will remain outstanding or be refinanced.

Peru Copper (CUP) slumped after the Canadian-based company reported a wider loss for 2005. The company posted a loss of $3.4 million as compared to a loss of $300,000 in 2004. Administration expenses increased to $4.2 million for 2005, up from $500,000 for the 2004 year, primarily as a result of new operating costs incurred from the increase in corporate activities and an increase in stock-based compensation. Shares fell 23 cents, or 8.8%, to $2.39 in recent trading.
