16:14 EDTWCG, GOLD, FB, UNH, CNC, CALL, MSFT, AET, MOH, SNE, AOLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower, as investors got their chance to react to Friday’s worse than expected jobs report. Stock futures were sharply lower in pre-market trading, leading to a lower open for the market. The move was broad based, as evidenced by the fact that at one point 99% of the stocks in the S&P 500 index were in negative territory. Investors came back from the holiday weekend ready to sell, but a drift higher throughout the day limited the losses. Big question marks hang in front of the earnings season, which unofficially kicks off tomorrow with Alcoa's (AA) report... ECONOMIC EVENTS: A report Friday, while the U.S. stock markets were closed, showed that the U.S. added 120K net new jobs in March. That total missed expectations and the prevailing rate of growth in recent months. Today's economic calendar had little of note to distract investors from Friday's disappointment... COMPANY NEWS: Microsoft (MSFT) agreed to pay $1.06B to AOL (AOL) to buy many of it patents and license others, sending AOL's shares soaring $7.98, or 43.32%, to $26.40. Microsoft's stock declined with the broader market following the announcement of the deal, falling 42c, or 1.33%, to $31.10. In another $1B tech deal, Facebook (FB) agreed to purchase Instagram, a photo-sharing app for mobile devices. Shares of photo site Shutterfly (SFLY) fell $1.26, or 4.28%, to $28.21 after the deal was announced... Sony (SNE) plans to cut 10,000 jobs, or 6% of its workforce, over the next two years, according to reports... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were magicJack VocalTec (CALL), up $2.26, or 10.86%, to $23.07, as it provided guidance above the Street's view and said it will look to increase its stock buyback program, and Randgold Resources (GOLD), up $7.46, or 9.16%, to $88.90, after the company said its 2012 gold production would not be affected by a coup in Mali. Noteworthy losers included Molina Healthcare (MOH), down $9.36, or 26.74%, to $25.65, Centene (CNC), down $7.83, or 15.41%, to $42.97, WellCare Health Plans (WCG), down $5.46, or 7.35%, to $68.78, and Amerigroup (AGP), down $3.27, or 4.85%, to $64.18, after the companies lost their contracts to administer the state of Ohio’s Medicaid program. Ohio instead chose to go with Aetna (AET), United Health Group (UNH), and three others... INDICES: The Dow fell 130.55, or 1.00%, to 12,929.59; the Nasdaq dropped 33.42, or 1.08%, to 3,047.08; and the S&P 500 lost 15.88, or 1.14%, to 1,382.20.
