AB inBev (BUD) has agreed to acquire the remaining stake in Grupo Modelo (GPMCF) that it does not already own for $20.1 billion. Constellation Brands (STZ) acquired the remaining 50% in Crown for $1.85 billion and reaffirmed its full-year 2013 outlook. Human Genome Sciences (HGSI) rejected the unsolicited tender offer by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

Among notable gainers Friday are Navistar (NAV), after rumors surfaced that it would start to offer Cummins (CMI) engines in addition to its own MaxxForce engine, and Smith & Wesson (SWHC), after it reported better-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings per share and gave a positive outlook. 

Noteworthy losers Friday include Research In Motion (RIMM), after it released disappointing first-quater earnings and announced job cuts and a negative outlook, and Ford (F), after it announced that it expects second-quarter operating profits to be lower.
