16:20 EDTHLFOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower after the U.S. took new action to clamp down on tax inversion deals and led airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, while Europe reported weaker than expected manufacturing data. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA's home price index rose 0.1% in July to 212.7, missing expectations for an increase of 0.5%. Markit's preliminary manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for September came in at 57.9, slightly below the consensus forecast for a 58.0 reading. In China, HSBC's flash manufacturing PMI rose to 50.5 from a final reading of 50.2 in August, better than expectations. In Europe, Markit's composite flash PMI for the eurozone dipped to a nine-month low of 52.3, missing expectations for it to hold steady with its 52.5 reading for August. COMPANY NEWS: The shares of a number of companies that have announced or been speculated as targets in tax inversion deals fell after the U.S. Treasury last night issued new regulations that will make such deals less attractive. AstraZeneca (AZN), which has previously turned down an offer to be acquired by the U.S.'s Pfizer (PFE), sank $3.54, or 4.74%, to $71.13 despite a Bloomberg report that said Pfizer is still considering pursuing a deal with the U.K. drugmaker. AbbVie (ABBV), which has a deal in progress to acquire Shire (SHPG) and thus move its tax domicile to Ireland, fell $1.15, or 1.96%, to $57.56, while Shire shares slid $5.56, or 2.17%, to $250.74. Medtronic (MDT), which is pursuing its own inversion deal with Covidien (COV), dropped $1.90, or 2.88%, to $64.08. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Herbalife (HLF), which rose $3.88, or 9.65%, to $44.09, bouncing back from a pullback yesterday that had been attributed to rumors of Carl Icahn selling out of his stake in the company. Also higher was Plug Power (PLUG), which rose 40c, or 9.57%, to $4.58 after the company's CEO gave FY15 revenue guidance that was above the consensus Street view in an interview with the Albany Business Review. Among the noteworthy losers was Ascena Retail (ASNA), which dropped $2.78, or 16.82%, to $13.75 after the apparel retailer's fourth quarter results and fiscal 2015 profit outlook trailed analysts' consensus estimates. Also lower were shares of used car retailer CarMax (KMX), which fell $5.01, or 9.49%, to $47.80 after the company reported sluggish comparable used car sales in its second quarter. INDEXES: The Dow declined 116.81, or 0.68%, to 17,055.87, the Nasdaq dropped 19.00, or 0.42%, to 4,508.69, and the S&P 500 fell 11.52, or 0.58%, to 1,982.77.
