16:28 EDTIRGOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in positive territory despite President Obama authorizing air strikes against the Islamic State militant group in northern Iraq in conjunction with a humanitarian effort. The early move higher stalled but the market then moved higher as reports confirmed that Russian military aircraft exercises near the Ukraine border had ended, as planned. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., productivity growth rose 2.5% in the second quarter, beating expectations for a rise of 1.6%. Second quarter unit labor costs, however, only increased 0.6%, which was below the 1% consensus forecast. Wholesale inventories increased 0.3% in June, and sales were up 0.2%, which were both below expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McDonald's (MCD) were fractionally higher despite the company reporting that its comparable store sales fell 2.5% in July, which was significantly worse than expected. The fast food giant stated that its U.S. comparable sales were down 3.2% in the month compared to the same month of last year and that comp sales in Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa dropped 7.3%. The APMEA region's comparable sales decline reflects the impact of food quality and safety issues at a supplier to McDonald's and other food companies in China which caused a "significant negative impact" to results in China, Japan and certain other markets, the company noted. As a result of the China supplier issue, the company's previously issued global comparable sales forecast for 2014 is now at risk, McDonald's added. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was chip maker NVIDIA (NVDA), which rose $1.54, or 8.82%, to $19.00 after the company’s second quarter profit and third quarter revenue outlook surpassed analysts’ consensus estimates. Also higher was small-cap Tekmira Pharmaceuticals (TKMR), which jumped $6.43, or 45.06%, to $20.70 after announcing that the FDA has verbally confirmed they have modified the full clinical hold placed on the TKM-Ebola Investigational New Drug Application to a partial clinical hold. Among the noteworthy losers was cereal maker Post Holdings (POST), which fell $7.08, or 15.91%, to $37.43 and was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at SunTrust after the company reported an adjusted net loss for its third quarter and agreed to acquire American Blanching Company for $128M. Also lower were shares of Ignite Restaurant (IRG), the owner of the Joe’s Crab Shack and Macaroni Grill brands, which fell $4.33, or 34.98%, to $8.05 after reporting second quarter results that missed analysts' expectations and having its shares downgraded at Raymond James and CL King. INDEXES: The Dow advanced 185.66, or 1.13%, to 16,553.93, the Nasdaq gained 35.93, or 0.83%, to 4,370.90, and the S&P 500 rose 22.02, or 1.15%, to 1,931.59.

12:46 EDTIRGIgnite Restaurant shares tumble after Q2 earnings miss expectations
Shares of Ignite Restaurant (IRG) fell steeply after the company reported second quarter earnings results that were lower than analysts' expectations. WHAT'S NEW: Ignite's Q2 adjusted earnings per share was 8c, which fell steeply below analysts' estimates of 24c. Revenue for the quarter was $229.8M, which also was lower than analysts' consensus of $238.74M. Ignite reported that comparable restaurant sales increased 8.5% at Brick House Tavern + Tap, decreased 4.7% at Joe’s Crab Shack and decreased 2.6% at Macaroni Grill during the quarter. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Chief Executive Officer Ray Blanchette cited "residual effects" of 2014 winter weather, as well as some cannibalization of Joe's Crab Shack sales as the company increased the number of locations in the Northeast over the past three years for the earnings miss. Blanchette said Macaroni Grill results were "generally in line" with internal expectations. The company's near-term development strategy is expected to provide further opportunities to expand the Brick House concept, Blanchette noted. The company closed three Macaroni Grill locations and three additional locations were closed in July. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, Raymond James downgraded Ignite to Underperform from Market Perform and CL King downgraded the company to Neutral from Buy. Piper Jaffray analyst Nicole Miller Regan said that although she was encouraged by the long-term growth strategy of the company's restaurant portfolio, she feels that there is softness in the Joe's Crab Shack division and sees "choppiness" in same-store sales at Macaroni Grill in the third quarter. The firm maintains its Overweight rating on Ignite's shares and reduced its price target to $14 from $17. PRICE ACTION: During afternoon trading, shares of Ignite fell $3.96 or 31.99%, to $8.42.
