16:18 EDTTRLA, AMZN, WCG, Z, P, VOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the day. Earnings and guidance disappointments from a few notable names, particularly Visa (V) and Amazon.com (AMZN), put pressure on the averages from the outset. Buyers moved to the sidelines ahead of the weekend, as reports circulated that no truce accord was reached in Israel and that Russia was building up its troop presence along the Ukrainian border. Also late in the day, Goldman Sachs warned that it believes a sell-off in bonds could lead to a temporary sell-off in equities over the next three months. However, Goldman also noted that it has "strong conviction" that equities are the best positioned asset class over the next 12 months. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., durable goods orders rebounded 0.7% in June after a 1.0% decline in the prior month, beating expectations for June increase of 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Amazon fell $34.60, or 9.65%, to $324.01 after the e-commerce giant reported in-line second quarter revenue but a much higher than expected loss. A number of analysts responded to the news by downgrading the stock, while several others cut their price targets on the shares... Visa reported Q3 earnings per share and revenue that topped consensus forecasts. However, the company trimmed its fiscal year revenue growth view to be in the 9%-10% range from its prior forecast for low double-digit constant revenue growth of around 10%-11%. Shares of the Dow Jones Industrial Average component slid $7.97, or 3.58%, to $214.77 following the report and guidance. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were online real estate listing companies Zillow (Z) and Trulia (TRLA), which climbed for a second session in a row after Bloomberg reported yesterday that the former was negotiating to buy the latter. Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley wrote in a note to investors that the Bloomberg story is "credible" as there is a "compelling" rationale for the companies to combine and Zillow ended the day up $13.10, or 8.99%, at $158.86 while Trulia added another $2.61, or 4.86%, to close at $56.35. Among the noteworthy losers was WellCare (WCG), which plunged $15.24, or 19.83%, to $61.61 after the managed care company pre-announced significantly weaker than expected results. Also lower following its earnings report and guidance was online music service operator Pandora (P), which declined $2.97, or 10.34%, to $25.75. INDEXES: The Dow fell 123.23, or 0.72%, to 16,960.57, the Nasdaq dropped 22.54, or 0.5%, to 4,449.56, and the S&P 500 slid 9.64, or 0.48%, to 1,978.34.

06:16 EDTAMZNAmazon unveils 'Make an Offer' for customers to negotiate lower prices
Amazon.com has announced the "Make an Offer" experience that allows customers to negotiate even lower prices on thousands of items. Expanding on Amazonís traditional fixed price model, the new pricing feature allows customers to offer to buy items at even lower prices. If agreed upon, customers can then purchase the items at a savings from the listed price. To start, more than 150,000 items from sellers on Amazon are enabled with the "Make an Offer" experience across Sports and Entertainment Collectibles, Collectible Coins and Fine Art. The new feature will expand to hundreds of thousands of items from sellers in 2015. The "Make an Offer" feature is not an auction format. All negotiations are 1:1 and private between individual customers and sellers. A seller is able to accept a customerís offer at any time. The intention is to lower prices, and a customer negotiating with a seller will never pay more than the listed price.
