16:15 EDTGSK, GRPN, KERX, THRX, YPF, WG, AVPOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after manufacturing reports in the U.S. and China indicated expansion. Stock futures traded below fair value for most of the pre-market trading session leading to a lower open for the broader market. The weakness was attributed to a high unemployment reading and a lackluster PMI report out of Europe. The market reversed its course and moved into positive territory following the slightly better than expected ISM manufacturing report here in the U.S. Once in positive territory the market moved quickly, but its advance stalled at a resistance level for the S&P. The move broadened out with the Nasdaq ending the day as the leading major index... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, the ISM manufacturing reading of 53.4 exceeded expectations for a 53.0 reading. Construction spending in February was down 1.1%, versus the expected increase of 0.6%. Internationally, an official reading of China's PMI rose to 53.1 while Markit's Eurozone manufacturing PMI fell to 47.7... MARKET NEWS: Avon Products (AVP) rejected the increased bid of $23.25 per share from fragrance-maker Coty. Avon shares rose $3.34, or 17.25%, to $22.70 following the announcement of the sweetened offer though Coty said it will not go hostile with its buyout plan... Groupon (GRPN) shares slid almost 17%, to $15.27, after the company announced weakness in its internal controls and revised its Q4 results lower... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Willbros Group (WG), up 69c, or 21.30%, to $3.93, after its Q4 revenues beat expectations, and Theravance (THRX), up $3.79, or 19.44%, to $23.29, after GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) moved to raise its stake in the company to 26.8% with the purchase of 10M shares. Noteworthy losers included YPF SA (YPF), down $4.40, or 15.49%, to $24.01, following a downgrade at Merrill Lynch and a report that Argentina's government will take control of the company, and Keryx Biopharmaceuticals (KERX), down $3.24, or 65.06%, to $1.74, after the company announced that a trial for its lead drug missed its primary endpoint... INDICES: The Dow gained 52.45, or 0.40%, to 13,264.49; the Nasdaq added 28.13, or 0.91%, to 3,119.70; and the S&P 500 rose 10.43, or 0.74%, to 1,418.90.
