17:26 EDTEND, SMSC, AMZN, CBS, TRIP, BKS, TGT, TWX, OPEN, MCHP, AAPL, CHK, CMCSAOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, as generally good earnings reports were dampened by a weak private-sector jobs report. Stock futures traded slightly lower this morning ahead of the ADP employment change report. The report, which measures U.S. service sector jobs, missed expectations, precipitating a sell-off in futures and a lower open for the broader market. The market hit its low point about an hour into the session, with averages subsequently beginning to trade with an upward drift. The indices turned mixed around midday, with the Nasdaq crossing into positive territory after noon. From there, the averages continued to limp along in what was a lackluster session… ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., ADP said that 119,000 private-sector jobs were added in April, missing expectations for 170,000 job additions. Factory orders declined 1.5% in March, versus expectations of a 1.6% drop. In Europe, two pieces of disappointing data were reported: unemployment rose to 10.9% in the shared-currency bloc, and the eurozone's manufacturing sector contracted, with the manufacturing PMI for the region falling to 45.9 in April from 47.7 in March… COMPANY NEWS: A number of media companies reported better than expected results on both the top and bottom lines, including Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner (TWX) and CBS (CBS), but only CBS saw its shares move up following its announcement. CBS shares gained 2.30%, while Comcast fell 0.60% and Time Warner moved 1.66% lower... Chesapeake (CHK) fell 14.59% after its earnings missed consensus and Reuters reported on new potential conflicts of interests for its CEO Aubrey McClendon… Target (TGT) has announced it will stop selling Amazon’s (AMZN) Kindle while continuing to offer similar products from Apple (AAPL) and Barnes & Noble (BKS)… MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Standard Microsystems (SMSC), up $10.19, or 38.83%, to $36.43, on news it will be acquired by Microchip Technology (MCHP) for $37 per share in cash, and TripAdvisor (TRIP), up $6.10, or 16.70%, to $42.63, following a better-than-expected Q1 earnings report. Noteworthy losers included Endeavour International (END), down $3.05, or 23.79%, to $9.77, as its Q1 net loss widened on poor natural gas sales in the U.K. and falling gas prices, and OpenTable (OPEN), down $6.56, or 15.02%, to $37.12, after the company missed on revenues and lowered its Q2 EPS and revenue guidance… INDICES: The Dow lost $10.75, or 0.08%, to $13,268.57; the Nasdaq rose $9.41, or 0.31%, to $3,059.85; and the S&P 500 dropped $3.51, or 0.25%, to $1,402.31.
