October 7, 2013
16:31 EDTTWX, GWPH, GOOG, LQDT, IMAX, SAP, BBRY, CTB, RLD, CSCO, AAPLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the day deep in negative territory, with the weakness attributed to the lack of movement by Congressional leaders in forging agreements regarding the budget and the debt ceiling. The averages drifted throughout the session and moved in a narrow range for the most part, until weakening into the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: Consumer credit grew by $13.6B in August, which was somewhat above economists' expectations. Non-revolving credit, such as student and auto loans, rose, while revolving credit including credit cards slipped. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) rose $4.72, or 0.98%, to $487.75 after research firm Jefferies upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold and raised its price target on the shares to $600 from $425. After meetings with Asian suppliers, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek believes that the tech giant is getting price breaks from the companies that provide components. Misek, who previously expected the iPhone maker to report lower than expected profits for its fourth quarter, now thinks that the company's fourth quarter profits will be nearly in-line with analysts' expectations... BlackBerry (BBRY) shares advanced 28c, or 3.64%, to $7.97 after Reuters said the mobile device maker is in talks with Google (GOOG), Cisco (CSCO) and SAP (SAP) about selling them all or parts of itself. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH), which jumped $7.16, or 28.99%, to $31.86 after a Lazard Capital analyst wrote that the company has one of the most compelling opportunities he's ever seen and nearly tripled his price target on the stock to $65 from $22. Shares of RealD (RLD) rose 59c, or 9.2%, to $7.00 after the opening weekend of Warner Bros. (TWX) film "Gravity" had impressive statistics for 3-D viewing. Among the noteworthy losers was Cooper Tire (CTB), which fell $3.79, or 12.84%, to $25.72 as the company and Apollo Tyres, the Indian tire-maker which has agreed to buy Cooper, engage in a public fight over the price of the deal. Also lower were shares of Liquidity Services (LQDT), which dropped $3.78, or 11.53%, to $28.99 after Bank of America Merrill Lynch downgraded its stock two notches to Underperform from Buy and cut its price target on shares to $31 from $45. INDEXES: The Dow was down 136.34, or 0.90%, to 14,936.24; the Nasdaq was down 37.37, or 0.98%, to 3,770.38; and the S&P 500 was down 14.38, or 0.85%, to 1,676.12.
