16:15 EDTS, T, AMPE, AAPL, KBH, ABVTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher, with Apple (AAPL) leading the Nasdaq upward after declaring its first planned dividend along with a stock buyback plan. Stock futures were slightly lower early in the session and moved near the flat-line prior to the opening bell. The futures action led to a rather uneventful open for the broader market, which drifted throughout the morning. The market seemed unaffected by a slightly disappointing NAHB Housing report. The drifting continued throughout the day, with the trading range again being narrow, though Apple's move helped the Nasdaq tack on 0.75%... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NAHB Housing Market Index reading of 28 fell a bit short of the expected 30 reading... MARKET NEWS: Apple plans to initiate a quarterly dividend of $2.65 per share in Q4, giving its stock roughly a 1.8% yield, and also said it will begin a $10B share repurchase program in FY13. In its call to discuss its cash plans, Apple said it set new records with the sales of the latest iPad, which was later echoed in an announcement by AT&T (T), but neither company provided specific figures... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were AboveNet (ABVT), up $9.49, or 12.78%, to $83.74, after agreeing to be taken private by Zayo Group for $84 per share, and Ampio Pharmaceuticals (AMPE), up $1.14, or 42.54%, to $3.82, following a preliminary assessment of a trial for its Optina drug. Noteworthy losers included Sprint (S), down 13c, or 4.50%, to $2.76, after Bernstein downgraded the stock and lowered its price target to $1.75 from $2.50, and KB Home (KBH), down 87c, or 6.82%, to $11.89, after the March NAHB homebuilder sentiment report included a lower regional breakout for the West that ISI Homebuilding Research called "a headwind for KBH"... INDICES: The Dow gained 6.51, or 0.05%, to 13,239.13; the Nasdaq added 23.06, or 0.75%, to 3,078.32; and the S&P 500 rose 5.58, or 0.40%, to 1,409.75.
