16:22 EDTCHTR, LMCA, LULU, WAG, ABC, EA, CAHOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed as the ongoing fears over the situation in Cyprus weighed on the S&P, though the Dow was able to eke out a modest gain. Data released before the open showed housing permits rose to multi-year highs, but headlines out of Europe kept the averages under pressure for much of the afternoon... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts climbed 0.8% from the prior month to a 917K rate in February. Building permits rose by 4.6% to a 946K rate, which was significantly ahead of the consensus forecast. In Europe, ongoing fears about how the situation in Cyprus will play out, including renewed worries that the nation will default or be forced to leave the euro zone, sent the euro currency lower against the U.S. dollar. Cyprus' parliament defeated the bank levy bill and afternoon headlines from Bloomberg said the ECB will provide liquidity to that nation, though only within its existing rules... COMPANY NEWS: Liberty Media (LMCA) announced an agreement to pay $2.617B for a 27.3% stake in Charter Communications (CHTR). Charter shares, which gained nearly 10% yesterday as media reports of the Liberty investment circulated, advanced another $2.34, or 2.39%, to $100.38, while Liberty shares closed down 32c, or 0.29%, to $110.34... lululemon (LULU) lost $1.82, or 2.76%, to $64.08 after issuing a recall of its Black Luon pants, citing a sheerness problem. lululemon cut its Q1 revenue and same-store-sales guidance as a result of the recall, and shares were downgraded at Sterne Agee... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Walgreen (WAG), up $2.31, or 5.44%, to $44.74 after reporting earnings and announcing it agreed to a long-term pharmaceutical distribution agreement with AmerisourceBergen (ABC). AmerisourceBergen shares rose $1.76, or 3.64%, to $50.06 after the agreement, which grants Walgreen the right to buy a stake in AmerisourceBergen. Among the noteworthy losers was Electronic Arts (EA), down $1.56, or 8.34%, to $17.15 after its CEO resigned and the company warned it will likely come in below or near the bottom of its prior guidance. Also lower was Cardinal Health (CAH), down $3.78, or 8.19%, to $42.35 after the company announced its agreement with Walgreen will end in August and the company provided a FY14 EPS view below consensus... INDICES: The Dow was up 3.76, or 0.03%, to 14,455.82; the Nasdaq was down 8.49, or 0.26%, to 3,229.10; and the S&P 500 was down 3.76, or 0.24%, to 1,548.34.
