Investors moved somewhat cautiously ahead of jobs reports coming at the end of the week, where US figures blew away expectations, but…

Equity Market Snapshot:

(All percentages on a weekly basis unless otherwise noted) * Biotechs were all over the news, as you`ll notice in this week`s notable movers. Japan’s Otsuka Pharmaceuticals announced it will buy California-based Avanir Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:AVNR, +13.87%) for $17 per share in a deal valued at about $3.2 billion. Analysts have quickly chimed in saying the price leaves room for competitor bids.

* Merck (NYSE:MRK, +1.80%) is reportedly near striking a deal to buy Cubist Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:CBST, -1.91%) for about $102 per share, in a deal worth roughly $8 billion. Shares of CBST closed at $74.36 on Friday.

* Biogen Idec Inc. (NASDAQ:BIIB, +10.78%) surged after the company said it is skipping Phase 2 trials and taking its Alzheimer`s drug in development directly into Phase 3 after BIIB037 showed a significant effect on cognition in a Phase 1 trial.

* Japan`s Sharp Corp. (OTC:SHCAY, -2.53%) is reportedly by the Nikkei Business Daily to be close to selling its U.S.-based solar energy development unit Recurrent Energy to Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ, +2.61%) for about 30 billion yen (US$247 million). According to the report, Sharp wants to have an agreement in place by the end of 2014.

* Shares of computer chip maker Cypress Semiconductor (NASDAQ:CY, +22.78%) and Spansion Inc. (NASDAQ:CODE, +28.93%) both jumped ahead after Cypress agreed to spend $1.6 billion to acquire and merge with Spansion. Spansion started as a JV between Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE:AMD, -4.66%) and Fujitsu before being spun out into an independent private company in 2005, which was followed by Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2009.

* Speaking of bankruptcy, shares of Delia’s Inc. (NASDAQ:DLIA, -84.05%) were eviscerated after the teen retailer said it is filing for Chapter 11 and that it doesn`t expect any value to be left in shares of its common stock.

* Halifax-based DHX Media Ltd (TSX:DHX.B, +8.08%), a producer of kid`s shows, agreed to buy privately held Nerd Corps Entertainment for about C$57 million ($50 million). According to DHX, the move will bring many hours of proprietary content to its library, including the hit show “Slugterra,” which is broadcast on the Disney XD channel in Canada and the US.

* Shares of Enbridge (TSX:ENB, +11.36%) got a lift after the pipeline company said it plans to transfer its Canadian liquids pipelines business and certain renewable energy assets to its affiliate Enbridge Income Fund Holdings (TSX:ENF, +14.14%) and boost its quarterly dividend by 33% to C$0.47 per share.

* Shares of Puma Biotechnology (NASDAQ:PBYI, -9.29%) declined after the pharma said it is delaying submitting its new drug application for neratinib (PB272) for breast cancer with the FDA until the first quarter of 2016. Puma had originally said the NDA would be filed in the first half of 2015, but now plans to expand the NDA to include the extended adjuvant HER2-positive breast cancer indication, which will take more time.

* November car and light truck sales were second-highest in eight years and highest since August at an annual rate of 17.2 million after a 16.5-million pace in October. Shares in General Motors Co.

(NYSE:GM, +1.50%) and Toyota (NYSE:TM, +4.79%) advanced on improved sales, but shares of Ford Motor Co. (NYSE:F, -0.19%) slipped after the company reported a modest decline in sales last month.

* According to Bloomberg, Canadian buyout firm Onex Corp (TSX:OCX, -1.34%) is amid discussions to buy Survitec Group Ltd., a UK-based safety and survival equipment maker owned by Warburg Pincus LLC, for about 450 million pounds ($704 million).

Weekly Indices Results:

The S&P TSX Composite Index closed red for the second straight week, erasing another 271.00 points, or 1.84%, to 14,473.70. The TSX-Venture Composite Index continued to print multi-year lows, dumping 39.88 points, or 5.38%, to 701.99.

In the States, the Dow Jones Industrial Average kept rising into uncharted territory, making another record high and extending its weekly winning streak to seven by adding 130.55 points, or 0.73%, at 17,958.79. The much-broader S&P 500 is in the same boat with a new record of its own, gaining 7.81 points, or 0.38%, to close at 2,075.37. The tech-rich NASDAQ Composite edged away from 4,800, slipping by 10.88 points, or 0.23%, to 4,780.75.

Canadian Economic Data:

(All data from Statistics Canada unless otherwise noted) * The Richard Ivey School of Business at Western University said its Purchasing Managers’ Index rose to 56.9 in November from a reading of 51.2 in October, handily topping analyst predictions of a mild rise to 53.2. The Ivey PMI shows responses to one question: “Were your purchases last month in dollars higher, the same, or lower than the previous month” Readings above 50 indicate expansion in business activity, while below 50 signal contraction. In November 2013 the Ivey PMI was 53.7 and for November 2012 it stood at 47.5, signaling the economy continues to slowly strengthen.

* Following two months of notable gains, employment was little changed in November, losing a net of 10,700 jobs last month, against economist expectations of a gain of 5,000. The unemployment rate increased 0.1 percentage points to 6.6%. Compared with November 2013, employment increased by 146,000 (+0.8%), with part-time and full-time work up 1.9% and 0.6% respectively. Over the same period, the total number of hours worked was little changed (+0.1%). Provincially, employment declined in Ontario (-34,000) and Saskatchewan (-3,900), while it increased in Quebec (+20,000) as well as Newfoundland and Labrador (+3,100).

This week, major economic data reports will include Building Permits and Housing Starts on Monday; and the New Housing Price Index on Thursday.

U.S. Economic Data:

* The Institute for Supply Management reported that its Manufacturing Index nipped down to 58.7 in November from 59.0 in October, suggesting that US factories are still powering through a global economic slowdown. Readings above 50 for the index, which measures sentiment of purchasing managers, suggest expansion, while below 50 indicates contraction. The New Order sub-index climbed to 66.0 from 65.8 in October, hitting a three-month high. The Production sub-index dipped from 64.8 in October to 64.4. Helping to give factories a boost is falling energy prices, with the ISM Price Paid sub-index sinking from 53.5 in October to 44.5 in November, representing the lowest level since July 2012.

* The Department of Labor said that the US added 321,000 jobs in November, crushing the 228,000 forecast by economists and marking the largest monthly increase in almost three years. October’s figure was revised up to 243,000 from a previously estimated 214,000 and September`s number was moved up from 256,000 to 271,000, while the unemployment rate (which is drawn from a different survey of households) remained unchanged at a six-year low of 5.8%. Average hourly earnings increased 0.4% (9 cents per hour), the biggest one-month rise since June 2013, to $24.66. Economists noted that a big chunk of the robust gain was in part-time and temporary work as retailers and delivery services beefed-up staff for the holiday rush, but could not discount the huge month as a sign of an expanding economy.

* In its weekly report, the Labor Department said that initial jobless claims, a measure of first-time filings to collect unemployment benefits, dropped by 17,000 to a seasonally adjusted 297,000 in the week ended November 29. The decline essentially erased the week prior`s gain, which put claims over 300,000 for the first time since early September and was in line with economist predictions.

The four-week moving average, regarded by most as a better measure of labor trends because it flattens weekly volatility, rose by 4,750 to 299,000. The one-month average has now been below 300,000 for 12 straight weeks, indicating the labor market continues to find firm footing.

* Rising exports helped close the trade deficit modestly in October (but not as much as economists expected), according to a report from the Commerce Department. The agency said the trade gap contracted by 0.4% to $43.4 billion, against economist calls for a drop to $41.4 billion. Meanwhile, September`s shortfall was revised upward from $43.03 billion to $43.6 billion. Exports increased 1.2% to $197.5 billion in October, lead by a 36% increase in the value of goods sent to China, an 8.5% increase to the EU and 4.0% increase to Japan, while exports to Canada and Mexico set record levels. Imports were up 0.9% in October to $241 billion, in part to imports from China hitting an all-time high.

This week, data in the States will include Initial Jobless Claims and Retail Sales on Thursday; and the PPI-FD report on Friday.
