16:23 EDTAUXL, RDEN, BABA, MEI, YHOO, BCS, QLTI, IRM, GPROOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and proceeded to spend the entire session there. The early move lower had pushed the Dow to a triple digit loss about an hour into trading, but the market then spent the rest of the day trying to get back to positive territory and fell just short of doing so. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims in the third week of June came in at 312k, which was a hair above the 310K forecast. Personal income rose 0.4% in May, matching expectations, but consumer spending grew only 0.2%, missing the forecast for 0.4% growth. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Barclays (BCS) trading in New York fell $1.16, or 7.38%, to $14.55 after New York's Attorney General announced a lawsuit against the bank arising from the operation of its dark pool and other aspects of its electronic trading division. Bloomberg, citing people with knowledge of the matter, said some money managers are telling brokers not to send orders to Barclays LX venue after NY AG Eric Schneiderman accused the venue of misleading clients about high-frequency trading... Action camera maker GoPro (GPRO) made its stock market debut and rose $7.34, or 30.58%, to close at $31.34 after its initial public offering priced at $24 per share... China's Alibaba (BABA), in which Yahoo (YHOO) holds a significant stake, confirmed it will apply for listing on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “BABA.” MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Iron Mountain (IRM), which gained $5.97, or 20.05%, to $35.74 after its board of directors approved the company’s conversion to a real estate investment trust, or REIT, following the receipt of favorable private letter rulings from the IRS. Also higher was Methode Electronics (MEI), which rose $4.66, or 14.11%, to $37.68 after its Q4 sales and its revenue outlook for the new fiscal year beat estimates. Among the noteworthy losers was Elizabeth Arden (RDEN), which fell $4.59, or 17.0%, to $22.41 after Reuters reported that South Korea's LG Household disclosed that it is no longer considering a takeover of the U.S. cosmetics company. Also lower was Auxilium (AUXL), which fell 54c, or 2.54%, to $20.69 after agreeing to merge with QLT Inc (QLTI). Auxilium shares were up more than 16% near noon but continued to move lower during the afternoon to eventually close in the red, with analysts at Brean Capital saying that the deal suggests that no company was interested in buying "old" Auxilium prior to it reaching this agreement. INDEXES: The Dow slid 21.38, or 0.13%, to 16,846.13, the Nasdaq dropped 0.71, or 0.02%, to 4,379.05, and the S&P 500 slipped 2.31, or 0.12%, to 1,957.22.

08:21 EDTBABAApple Pay faces resistance from China, MarketWatch says
Apple (AAPL) is attempting to launch Apple Pay in China, but a People's Bank of China official stated the company has not acknowledged regulators and "it's unclear whether the product meets the government’s requirements,” while talks with state-owned card payment operator UnionPay "have stalled" according to sources close to the companies, reports MarketWatch. Alibaba (BABA) currently operates the similar Alipay service and an Alibaba employee stated the two companies "have stayed in contact and are preparing for several projects," but because all payments go through UnionPay, Apple's entry into the market is ultimately controlled by the state-owned firm. The Chinese government has raised numerous concerns regarding Apple Pay, and is demanding the company open a mainland China data center to house customer information. Reference Link

12:17 EDTGPROGoPro rises as lock-up expires
Shares of action camera maker GoPro (GPRO) are climbing as about 76M shares of the company's stock become available for sale today. WHAT'S NEW: About 76M shares of GoPro's stock became available for sale today as a lock-up related to a recent secondary offering of the company's stock expired. Lock-up agreements, a typical feature of company stock offerings, prevent certain shareholders from selling for a set amount of time after the offering. GoPro CEO Nicholas Woodman said in a regulatory filing that the company had carried out the secondary offering partly as a means of facilitating a more gradual, orderly sale of shares when the company's IPO lock-up ended last December 22. A number of larger shareholders agreed to hold onto their shares for another 90 days in order to further that goal, Woodman explained. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors today, research firm Northland Securities initiated coverage of GoPro with an Outperform rating, saying that the company's new HERO4 camera is "demonstrating strong...momentum." Sales of the product are causing the company's gross margins and average selling price to rise, added the firm. GoPro is also poised to benefit significantly from the proliferation of its images on digital media, and from the deployment of its cameras in additional venues such as helmets and drones, according to Northland. The firm set a $70 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, GoPro climbed $4.04, or 8.8%, to $49.24.
12:15 EDTGPROGoPro rallies sharply, levels to watch
The shares were initiated at Outperform at Northland with a $70 price target. This is also another lock-up expiration day, which are often volatile trading days but not necessarily consistent indicators of future performance. At the current price of $48.93, next resistance is at $50.29. Support is at $48.40.

16:45 EDTGPROFAA proposes new rules for commercial operation of drones in U.S
The Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration proposed a framework of regulations that would allow routine use of certain small unmanned aircraft systems, UAS, in today’s aviation system, while maintaining flexibility to accommodate future technological innovations. The FAA proposal offers safety rules for small UAS, under 55 pounds, conducting non-recreational operations. The rule would limit flights to daylight and visual-line-of-sight operations. It also addresses height restrictions, operator certification, optional use of a visual observer, aircraft registration and marking, and operational limits. Publicly traded companies in the space include General Dynamics (GD), Lockheed Martin (LMT), Northrop Grumman (NOC), AeroVironment (AVAV), SAIC (SAIC), Textron (TXT), Amazon.com (AMZN) and GoPro (GPRO).
