16:33 EDTGILD, GNTX, EBAY, GSK, HGSI, TUMI, SPLK, DD, TRV, VZ, BACOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower, as disappointing economic data overshadowed earnings that were largely better than expected. Stock futures were higher in early trading but weakened following disappointing jobless claims data and a rumor the sovereign debt of France would lose its AAA rating. When the French rumor went unfounded the market moved higher, but just temporarily. The averages stalled again after existing home sales data for March showed a decline versus an expected increase but gathered once more to move back into positive territory. As the day progressed and the European markets closed lower, the averages lost any momentum they'd found and fell back into negative ground. For the remainder of the day the market drifted in the red as investors prepared for the next round of corporate earnings reports... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., more jobless claims applications were filed than forecast, with the figure hitting 386,000. Sales of previously owned homes in March unexpectedly fell 2.6% to a 4.48M annual rate from 4.6M in February. Forecasts had called for an increase to 4.61M. In Europe, Spain was able to sell more bonds than expected but at higher yields, leaving mixed impressions among investors... COMPANY NEWS: Bank of America (BAC) posted Q1 adjusted results that beat consensus, but shares declined 1.68% to $8.77. Among other Dow components, Verizon (VZ) and Travelers (TRV) also reported earnings that exceeded expectations and both saw their shares rise following the reports, with Verizon gaining 1.30% to $38.15 and Travellers advancing 3.75% to $61.70. Du Pont (DD) was the fourth Dow name to beat on earnings, but shares fell 1.24% to $52.61... Meanwhile, data analysis software company Splunk (SPLK) and luxury luggage and briefcase maker Tumi Holdings (TUMI) both surged after debuting their IPOs on the Nasdaq. Splunk shares priced at $17 and ended the day at $35.48, while Tumi priced at $18 and closed at $26.50… MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Human Genome Sciences (HGSI), up $7, or 97.63%, to $14.17, after saying it had turned down an unsolicited $13 per share, or approximately $2.6B, buyout proposal from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), and eBay (EBAY), up $4.75, or 13.24%, to $40.62, as the company’s sales and profits beat analyst estimates, led by growth in its PayPal online payments business. Noteworthy losers included Gentex (GNTX), down $4.07, or 16.01%, to $21.35, after its top-line miss continued to reinforce investor fears over slowing growth, and Achillion (ACHN), down $1.20, or 12.63%, to $8.30, with the decline attributed by Wells Fargo to positive data for Gilead's (GILD) oral hepatitis C combination treatment… INDICES: The Dow lost $68.65, or 0.53%, to 12,964.10; the Nasdaq fell $23.89, or 0.79%, to 3,007.56; and the S&P 500 dropped $8.22, or 0.59%, to 1,376.92.
