Among equities in focus today are fellow Dow component The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE:KO), cloud service stock LogMeIn Inc (NASDAQ:LOGM), and biotech Recro Pharma Inc (NASDAQ:REPH).

  • LOGM is up 20.2% at $83.82 -- and just off an all-time high of $86.40 -- after news that the cloud services provider will be merging with Citrix Systems, Inc.'s (NASDAQ:CTXS) GoTo unit, in an all-stock deal.
