16:27 EDTSPLKOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and weakened throughout the day, pushing equities down to their lowest levels of November. Comments made by Fed officials early in the day lent more uncertainty, not more clarity, regarding the chances of a rate hike at the FOMC meeting in December. The commodity sector was also weak, led by oil, which saw benchmark U.S. prices hit a three month low as WTI crude slid below $42 per barrel. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims were unchanged at 276,000 in the week of November 7, versus expectations for 270,000 first-time claims. The JOLTS report showed job openings rebounded 149,000 to 5.53M in September. In Europe, European Central Bank president Mario Draghi, in remarks delivered in a hearing in the European Parliament, once again signaled that the bank is ready to boost stimulus at its December meeting, if warranted. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Angie's List (ANGI) gained $1.05, or 13.26%, to $8.97 after IAC/InterActiveCorp (IACI), the parent company of HomeAdvisor, made public a $8.75 per share cash buyout offer. Yelp (YELP), which also connects people with local businesses via its web-based and mobile services, rose 92c, or 3.66%, to $25.90 following the revelation of the takeout bid for Angie's List... Department store owner Kohl's (KSS) advanced $2.64, or 6.12%, to $45.80 after its third quarter earnings and revenues beat expectations... Shares of PayPal (PYPL) were weak for a second straight session following a report yesterday afternoon alleging that Apple (AAPL) is set to launch a competitor to one of the payment technology company's offerings. Shares of PayPal slipped 1.8% to close at $36.33 yesterday following The Wall Street Journal's report, then dipped another 2.1% to close at $35.57 today. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Eros International (EROS), which rebounded 65c, or 7.88%, to $8.90 after calling allegations of security laws violations "baseless and misleading." Also higher was Splunk (SPLK), which rose $1.61, or 2.82%, to $58.78 after research firm JMP Securities reiterated an Outperform rating on the name, saying recent checks indicate that spending on Splunk products "remains healthy." (JD) advanced 3.2% to $28.78 after reporting 130% sales growth for China's Singles Day event. Among the noteworthy losers was Fairmount Santrol (FMSA), which fell 66c, or 22%, to $2.34 after reporting downbeat third quarter earnings and suspending its earnings guidance due to market "uncertainty." Also lower was Advance Auto Parts (AAP), which declined $30.00, or 15.41%, to $164.67 after its quarterly report missed analyst expectations, which came alongside a retirement announcement by its CEO and news of Starboard chief Jeff Smith being appointed to the company's board. Additionally, Derma Sciences (DSCI) lost 27.9% to $4.04 after terminating its Phase 3 clinical trials of aclerastide for the treatment of foot ulcers due to futility. INDEXES: The Dow fell 254.15, or 1.44%, to 17,448.07, the Nasdaq lost 61.94, or 1.22%, to 5,005.08, and the S&P 500 dropped 29.03, or 1.4%, to 2,045.97.
