16:28 EDTPCG, BBRY, BIIB, RH, CLVS, KINGOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher, but closed well off their best levels, as the averages traded in a now-familiar pattern of a higher open followed by afternoon weakness. With just one trading day remaining in March, the Dow and S&P 500 are roughly flat for the month, while the Nasdaq has declined more than 3%. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., personal income and consumer spending both rose 0.3% in February, matching expectations. The core PCE price index rose 0.1% in the month, which was also in-line with estimates. The final University of Michigan consumer sentiment reading for March came in at 80.0, which was down from February's 81.6 reading and a bit below expectations. In Europe, an index of executive and consumer sentiment rose to 102.4 in March from 101.2 in February, beating the consensus estimate of economists. COMPANY NEWS: BlackBerry (BBRY) reported a fourth quarter loss that was narrower than expected on revenue that missed expectations and fell below $1B for the first time since 2007. The handset maker said it sold 3.4M smartphones during the quarter. BlackBerry also said its cash and equivalents totaled $2.7B at March 1, down from $3.2B at the end of the prior quarter, and the company said it is targeting break-even cash flow by the end of its fiscal 2015. Shares of the company initially traded higher following the report, but closed down 64c, or 7.07%, to $8.41... King Digital (KING) lost another 41c, or 2.22%, to $18.08 to finish its first abbreviated week of trade down more than 14% following the "Candy Crush" maker's Wednesday initial public offering. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was home furnishing retailer Restoration Hardware (RH), up $8.12, or 12.73%, to $71.93 after its first quarter profit view beat estimates. Also higher were shares of Idera Pharmaceuticals (IDRA), up 69c, or 17.78%, to $4.57 after the company's Phase 2 trial of its treatment for moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis met its primary objective. Among the noteworthy losers was PG&E Corporation (PCG), down $1.75, or 4.01%, to $41.89 after reporting that they expect that the federal government will bring criminal charges against the utility in connection with the 2010 San Bruno natural gas transmission pipeline accident. Following the announcement the stock was downgraded at Deutsche Bank and Citigroup. Also lower were a number of biotech names, including Clovis Oncology (CLVS), down $9.99, or 12.44%, to $70.33, and Biogen (BIIB), down $15.94, or 5.05%, to $294.12 as the sector continued to see significant weakness, as it often has in recent trade. INDEXES: The Dow was up 58.83, or 0.36%, to 16,323.06; the S&P 500 was up 8.58, or 0.46%, to 1,857.62; the Nasdaq was up 4.53, or 0.11%, to 4,155.76.

18:13 EDTPCGPG&E says natural gas transmission pipeline struck in Fresno
PG&E said in a press release: "Pacific Gas and Electric urges anyone doing digging projects to call 811 at least two working days in advance so that utility lines can be marked to allow for safe digging. Workers not affiliated with PG&E apparently struck a 12-inch natural gas transmission pipeline this afternoon in Fresno; no call had been placed to 811. The gas that was released by the dig-in ignited, and there were reports of injuries." The company said in a statement: “Our primary concern is always the safety of the public and our employees. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been injured. As we continue to investigate this incident, we remind all of our customers of the importance of calling 811 before they do any type of digging project. Digging into gas pipelines can have serious safety consequences.” PG&E responded quickly after the pipeline was struck. PG&E detected a slight change in pressure at 2:29 p.m., and was first notified about the incident at 2:36 p.m. Actions to shut off gas began before 3 p.m., and the flow of gas to the pipeline was shut at 3:20 p.m. Because of the remaining gas in the line, the flames were exhausted at 3:56 p.m.
