Stocks to Watch: Knight Capital, Chesapeake

NEW YORK -- Knight Capital Group ( KCG) is discussing a possible rescue involving TD Ameritrade ( AMTD), Getco and other investors, according to a report.

Under the plan being discussed, TD Ameritrade and Getco would be the primary investors in a consortium of more than six entities that would provide a total of $400 million in capital to Knight, The Wall Street Journal reported.

A Knight representative declined to comment, the Journal said.

Knight, the Jersey City, N.J-based market maker, last Wednesday suffered a software glitch that caused it to send out erroneous trading orders. On Thursday, the company announced it had suffered a $440 million pretax loss as a result.

Under the consortium plan, the investors would purchase debt that would convert into stock at $2.50 a share, the Journal report said.

Jefferies ( JEF) also is involved in setting up the arrangement, the report said.
