16:19 EDTBBY, VPHM, JAG, DHR, XRIT, BCS, DB, STD, UNCFF, SNE, OPTROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower, with the Dow falling over 200 points for the session. Equity futures were quiet in the pre-market trading session leading to a relatively flat open for the broader market. The averages picked up momentum to the downside following the wholesale inventories report for the month of February. The selling picked up in earnest around midday, with the averages eventually tacking on losses of more than 1.5%. The buyers may have been sitting on the sideline waiting to see how the earnings season begins tonight when Alcoa (AA) reports... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NFIB small business optimism index fell to 92.5 in March. Wholesale inventories rose 0.9% in February, versus analysts' expectations for an increase of 0.5%. In China, an unexpected $5.35B trade surplus was reported for March, as imports rose 5.3% and exports increased 8.9% from a year ago. In Europe, the yield on Spanish 10-year bonds rose to nearly 6% despite the government's plans for additional budget cuts and local media reports in Italy pointed toward its government cutting its 2012 growth forecasts... COMPANY NEWS: Best Buy (BBY) said it came to "a mutual agreement" with CEO Brian Dunn that new leadership was needed, prompting Dunn to resign. Shares initially spiked on the news, then reversed to close down $1.33, or 5.87%, to $21.32... Sony (SNE) cut its outlook for the fourth time in less than a year, more than doubling its projected annual loss to $6.4B. The warning sent its stock tumbling $1.86, or 9.25%, to $18.24... Shares of a number of European banks fell with fears about the debt crisis in Europe coming back to the forefront. Unicredit (UNCFF) sank 6.82%, Banco Santander (STD) dropped 3.85%, Deutsche Bank (DB) declined 3.29%, and Barclays (BCS) slid 5.31%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were X-Rite Incorporated (XRIT), up $1.54, or 38.50%, to $5.54, on news Danaher (DHR) will acquire the company for $5.55 per share, and Jaguar Mining (JAG), up 57c, or 14.11%, to $4.61, on speculation of a takeover bid after shares of China Shandong Gold, which had previously tried to buy the miner, were halted for trading overseas. Noteworthy losers included ViroPharma (VPHM), down $6.17, or 21.57%, to $22.44, after the FTC opened an investigation into the company and several competitors launched generic versions of its Vancocin drug, and Optimer Pharmaceuticals (OPTR), down $1.37, or 9.99%, to $12.35, following a warning that Q1 revenue will miss consensus... INDICES: The Dow fell 213.66, or 1.65%, to 12,715.93; the Nasdaq dropped 55.86, or 1.83%, to 2,991.22; and the S&P 500 lost 23.61, or 1.71%, to 1,358.59.
