15:09 EDTBACBank of America announces consent order with OCC
Bank of America announced it has entered into a consent order with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency in which it agreed to continue to make improvements to its compliance practices, specifically enhancing its non-home loan collections litigation and Servicemembers' Civil Relief Act processes as well as its enterprise compliance program. "The order covers collections litigation from several years ago for a small percentage of credit card and deposit overdraft customers who defaulted on their account, and also covers SCRA account servicing. The issues were discovered by reviews that began in 2011; since that time, Bank of America enhanced its collections litigation and sworn documents processes and enhanced controls around SCRA across the company. In addition, Bank of America is building upon a number of initiatives already underway to better manage compliance risk going forward," the bank stated.

AbbVie (ABBV) said in a regulatory filing that on May 26, it entered into an accelerated share repurchase agreement with Morgan Stanley (MS) to repurchase $5B of AbbVie’s common stock.

The total number of shares of AbbVie’s common stock to be repurchased under the agreement will be based on the daily volume-weighted average price of AbbVie’s common stock during the term of the transaction, less a discount and subject to adjustment pursuant to the terms of the agreement. The final settlement of the transactions under the agreement is expected to occur before the end of 4Q15 and may be accelerated at the option of Morgan Stanley.This agreement was entered into pursuant to AbbVie’s previously disclosed share repurchase authorization and in connection with AbbVie’s previously announced acquisition of Pharmacyclics, which was completed on May 26.

12:33 EDTJPMOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session relatively unchanged from yesterday’s close and continue to trade in a holding pattern as investors await the release of the minutes from the Federal Reserve's last FOMC meeting. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., EIA inventory data showed a 2.67M barrel fall in crude stocks, versus expectations for a 1.75M barrel decrease. The Federal Reserve is scheduled to release the minutes from its last rate setting meeting at 2 pm EDT. In Asia, Japan's GDP accelerated to a 2.4% growth pace in the first quarter, which was much better than expected. Japanese stock markets rallied on the news, sending the Nikkei 225 average to its best level in 15 years. COMPANY NEWS: Five of the world's largest banks - Citi (C), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Barclays (BCS), The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and UBS (UBS) - agreed to pay more than $5B and plead guilty to felony charges related to manipulating foreign currencies and interest rates. In conjunction with previously announced settlements with regulatory agencies in the United States and abroad, today’s resolutions bring the total fines and penalties paid by these five banks for their conduct in the foreign exchange spot market to nearly $9B, the Department of Justice stated... Target (TGT) shares advanced 1% after the retailer's first quarter earnings topped expectations and it raised the low-end of its fiscal year profit forecast. Brian Cornell, chairman and CEO of Target, said the company was pleased with its first quarter traffic and sales, particularly in its signature categories, which drove better-than-expected profitability through improved gross margin and continued expense management. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), which rallied 53% after the company announced that, following meetings with the FDA, it would submit its eteplirsen drug to the FDA for approval on a rolling basis, with various components of the application being submitted separately. Eteplirsen is a treatment for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or DMD. Also higher was Pep Boys (PBY), which gained 14% after The Wall Street Journal said private equity firm Golden Gate Capital and other potential suitors have expressed interest recently in buying the company. Among the noteworthy losers was Etsy (ETSY), which operates an online marketplace to buy and sell handmade items and vintage goods. The stock, which priced its IPO at $16 and opened for trading at $31 per share, dropped 22% to trade near $16.50 after the company issued its first financial report since coming public in April. Also lower were shares of several airline stocks, led by Southwest (LUV), which was down 8% near noon. In a regulatory filing last night, Southwest indicated it expects FY15 capacity growth to increase 7%-8% and to grow another 6%-7% in FY16. Buckingham downgraded Southwest to Neutral from Buy this morning, stating it has a more cautious revenue outlook for the company due to a worsening backdrop as competitors vow to compete aggressively. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 6.10, or 0.03%, to 18,306.29, the Nasdaq was up 1.65, or 0.03%, to 5,071.69, and the S&P 500 was down 0.49, or 0.02%, to 2,127.34.

10:08 EDTJPMJPMorgan announces $892M in settlements with DOJ, Fed
JPMorgan Chase announced settlements with the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Reserve relating to the bank’s foreign exchange (FX) trading business. Under the DOJ resolution, JPMorgan will plead guilty to a single antitrust violation and pay a fine of $550M. Under the resolution with the Fed, the bank will pay a fine of $342M and has agreed to the entry of a Consent Order. JPMorgan said it has previously reserved for these settlements. These settlements are in addition to agreements announced in November 2014 with the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency relating to the FX trading business. The press release stated, "The conduct underlying the antitrust charge is principally attributable to a single trader (who has since been dismissed) and his coordination with traders at other firms." Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, said: “The conduct described in the government’s pleadings is a great disappointment to us. We demand and expect better of our people. The lesson here is that the conduct of a small group of employees, or of even a single employee, can reflect badly on all of us, and have significant ramifications for the entire firm. That’s why we’ve redoubled our efforts to fortify our controls and enhance our historically strong culture."
