ODP's stock slips after WSJ report of rejecting Staples' buyout bid
Shares of ODP Corp. slipped 1.1% in premarket trading Tuesday, after The Wall Street Journal reported that the office supplies retailer has rejected an unsolicited buyout proposal by rival Staples, which is owned Sycamore Partners. The buyout bid of $40 a share in cash, announced last week, valued ODP at more than $2 billion. The WSJ report, citing a letter it reviewed, said ODP has determined that rather than a sale, it prefers a sale of its retail and consumer-facing e-commerce operations. Staples' latest bid marks the third attempt to acquire its rival, as the WSJ reported. ODP's stock has more than doubled (up 113.8%) over the past three months through Friday, including a 24.1% gain last week, while the S&P 500 has advanced 10.0%.

Shares of Bank of America Corp. slipped 0.2% in premarket trading Tuesday, erasing earlier gains, after the bank reported a fourth-quarter profit that beat expectations but revenue that fell short, as global markets revenue rose less than forecast. Net income fell to $5.5 billion, or 59 cents a share, from $7.0 billion, or 74 cents a share, in the year-ago period. The FactSet consensus was for earnings per share of 55 cents.
