Materials stocks topped Wall Street after a weaker U.S. dollar made raw goods more appealing to international buyers. It was a rocky session for Lionsgate (LGF) following news the media company is back in negotiations with Starz (STRZA). Talk of a possible merger or acquisition emerged nearly a year ago but Lionsgate reportedly backed off due to price. Discussions are still in the early stage, according to sources. Glu Mobile (GLUU) surged after sealing a multi-year partnership with Taylor Swift.
