17:09 EDTAVNROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed to begin the week, as the Dow managed to register mild gains but the Nasdaq was weighed down by slides in a number of so-called "momentum stocks" like Tesla (TSLA). Investors may remain cautious in the next two sessions ahead of the Fed's much anticipated rate decision and accompanying statement, which is due Wednesday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., New York Fed's Empire state survey for September rose to a five-year high of 27.54. Industrial production unexpectedly dipped 0.1% in August from a downwardly revised 0.2% July gain, missing the forecast for a rise of 0.3%. Capacity utilization dropped to 78.8% last month from 79.1% previously. In China, industrial output increased 6.9% in August versus the same period a year earlier, which was its weakest advance, excluding months that fell during New Year holidays, since December 2008. Chinese retail sales growth for August came in at 11.9%, missing the consensus estimate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) edged down 3c, or 0.03%, to $101.63 despite the company's announcement that a record 4M iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders were placed in the first 24 hours that ordering was available. Demand for the new phones exceeds the initial pre-order supply, the company added, stating that delivery of "many" iPhone pre-orders have been pushed out to October... Microsoft (MSFT) slid 45c, or 0.97%, to $46.24 after the company confirmed an agreement to acquire Mojang, the developer for the "Minecraft" video game franchise, for $2.5B... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Avanir Pharmaceuticals (AVNR), which surged $5.75, or 85.31%, to $12.49 and was upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies after the company announced results from its phase II clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of its treatment of agitation in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Also higher was SABMiller (SBMRY), which jumped $4.72, or 8.5%, to $60.26 after the Wall Street Journal said that ABInBev (BUD) was looking to obtain financing for an acquisition of the U.K.-based brewer and Heineken (HEINY) confirmed that it rebuffed SABMiller's approach regarding a potential transaction. The news of potential consolidation in the space also drove other beer makers highers, with Molson Coors (TAP) rising $4.20, or 5.85%, to $76.00 and Boston Beer (SAM) gaining 71c, or 0.33%, to $218.47. Among the noteworthy losers was Tesla (TSLA), which dropped $25.34, or 9.08%, to $253.86 after Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jones wrote that he agrees with the assertion of Tesla's CEO Elon Musk that the company's stock may have gotten ahead of itself. Also lower were shares of NPS Pharmaceuticals (NPSP), which fell $5.42, or 16.56%, to $27.28 after Oppennheimer and Jefferies stated that approval of its Natpara drug for hypoparathyroidism could be delayed after concerns were raised during an FDA panel meeting, even though the advisors were in favor of approving the drug. INDEXES: The Dow rose 43.63, or 0.26%, to 17,031.14, the Nasdaq dropped 48.70, or 1.07%, to 4,518.90, and the S&P 500 declined 1.41, or 0.07%, to 1,984.13.
