By Investing.com Staff

After five days of selling pressure, stocks finally snapped the streak today following a rise in jobless claims. Amid the upside, several rumors swirled around Wall Street. Below we highlight a few:

MBIA (NYSE:MBI) rose over 4% following a report from Investing.com that the company received takeover bids from rivals Assured Guaranty Ltd. (NYSE:AGO) and another company, according to a source. Talks are said to be in the more advanced stages. Another rumored suitor, Ambac Financial Group (NYSE:AMBC), denied it was the second rumored suitor for MBIA.

Shares of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) fell following a report from Bloomberg News that Elon Musk is talking to banks to obtain new margin loans to replace older loans he secured to acquire Twitter. The focus of talks is on the $3 billion of unsecured debt, for which the social media company pays 11.75% interest. If Musk agrees to restructure the deal, any new margin loans are likely to be taken against his Tesla holdings.

Edwards Lifesciences (NYSE:EW) traded flat on vague takeover rumors as both the new CEO and outgoing CEO, who will now be non-executive Chairman, have ties to long-rumored suitor Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ). Nothing appears imminent.

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.
