16:23 EDTBCS, BABA, GPRO, YHOO, RDEN, IRM, MEI, AUXL, QLTIOn 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.
