16:47 EDTCSCO, NWSA, TSLA, MNST, ARX, AMAGOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, as a disappointing outlook from Cisco (CSCO) and continued worries about Europe weighed on the averages. Stock futures moved higher following the in line jobless claims data, leading to a higher open for the broader market. The market met resistance at the open and began to pullback before making a second run at the resistance level. After failing a second time the market began to give up its gains, with the Nasdaq falling into negative territory. By the afternoon the market had strengthened and once again all three of the major equity indices were above the flat line. However, at the close the Nasdaq was back in the red, barely preventing the big three from ending positive for the first time in several days… ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., 367,000 initial jobless claims were reported, basically falling in line with last week's figure and with consensus estimates. The U.S. trade deficit grew 14.1% to $51.83B in March, versus estimates of $50.0B. Also, the U.S. Treasury posted a $59.1B budget surplus for April, versus expectations of a surplus of $35B. In Europe, some fears about Spain's banking system eased after its government said it will nationalize the country's fourth-largest bank... COMPANY NEWS: Cisco reported quarterly earnings and revenue that just beat consensus views but forecast earnings in the coming quarter below the Street's expectations. The company's pessimistic view on challenges in Europe and weakness in India resonated with investors and the stock slid more than 10%... News Corp. (NWSA) shares gained close to 5% after the company reported revenue and profit that beat expectations and it raised its stock repurchase program by $5B to $10B... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Tesla Motors (TSLA), up $2.90, or 9.65%, to $32.96, after it reported quarterly sales and losses that were worse than expected but also increased the low end of its full year revenue guidance, and Monster Beverage (MNST), up $5.86, or 8.97%, to $71.17, after the energy-drink maker reported Q1 results that exceeded expectations, with volume and gross margin increasing. Noteworthy losers included Aeroflex Holding (ARX), down $2.44, or 25.39%, to $7.17, after missing on Q3 EPS and revenue and making Q4 predictions that fell well short of analyst estimates, and AMAG Pharma (AMAG), down $2.35, or 14.67%, to $13.67, after the company named a new CEO and indicated it would stop seeking to sell itself... INDICES: The Dow gained $19.98, or 0.16%, to $12,855.04; the Nasdaq fell $1.07, or 0.04%, to $2,933.64; and the S&P 500 added $3.41, or 0.25%, to $1,357.99.

Stocks on Wall Street began the trading day in negative territory and remained there through nearly the whole session. The market action was influenced more by the geopolitical events in Russia and Israel than by the upcoming avalanche of earnings scheduled for release throughout the week. Despite the weak open and subsequent drop during the first hour of trading, the market drifted off its lows and managed to pare its losses, even turning mixed for a short time. The averages dipped again heading into the bell, though they closed well of their worst levels. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed's National Activity Index dipped to 0.12 in June from a reading of 0.16 in May. COMPANY NEWS: Allergan (AGN) rose $3.74, or 2.23%, to $171.14 after the company's Q2 results and its FY14 outlook beat expectations. The company, which is working to fend off a proposed acquisition by Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX), also announced plans to cut its workforce by 13%, or about 1,500 employees, as part of a broader restructuring effort. In related news, Valeant announced it has contacted both the SEC and Canadian financial authorities regarding Allergan's "apparent attempt to mislead investors and manipulate the market for Valeant common shares by continuing to make false and misleading statements regarding Valeant's business." Later in the day, Bill Ackman of Pershing Square, who is partnering with Valeant in its attempt to buy Allergan, called the restructuring a "Valeant light" effort and said Valeant does not need to raise its bid for Allergan. Ackman explained that he believes that shares of Valeant will rise around $10 should the Allergan board engage in takeover talks with the company and that a $10 share rise would boost Valeant's bid for Allergan by $8 per share. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Extreme Networks (EXTR), which rose 69c, or 15.79%, to $5.06 after the company raised its Q4 earnings per share outlook and narrowed its Q4 revenue view. Also higher were shares of EMC (EMC), which advanced $1.35, or 5.0%, to $28.33 after the Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources, that activist investor Elliott Management has taken a stake of over $1B in the data-storage company and plans to push it to break itself up and spin off VMware (VMW), which is 80% owned by EMC. Shares of VMware fell $2.36, or 2.48%, to $92.95 following the Journal's report. Among the other noteworthy losers was Monster Beverage (MNST), which fell $3.07, or 4.53%, to $64.74 after Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock, citing slowing U.S. trends and balanced valuation. Also lower were shares of Yum! Brands (YUM), which fell $3.29, or 4.25%, to $74.13 after Associated Press reported that the company's KFC brand and McDonald's (MCD) were sold expired beef and chicken in China from food supplier Husi Food. Shares of McDonald's, which is scheduled to report on its quarter before tomorrow's market open, slid $1.44, or 1.45%, to $97.55. INDEXES: The Dow fell 48.45, or 0.28%, to 17,051.73, the Nasdaq dropped 7.44, or 0.17%, to 4,424.70, and the S&P 500 declined 4.59, or 0.23%, to 1,973.63.

11:57 EDTTSLAChinese electric vehicle maker Kandi surges after tax break news
Shares of Chinese electric car maker Kandi Technologies (KNDI) are surging after a Chinese newspaper reported that electric cars made outside of China would not qualify for a key tax break in the country. WHAT'S NEW: A key sales tax will not be waived on purchases of electric cars made outside of China, said Su Bo, China's vice-minister of the Industry and Information Technology Ministry, according to China Daily. Buyers of electric vehicles made in China will not have to pay a purchase tax from September 1, 2014 until the end of 2017, China Daily stated. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Tesla Motors (TSLA), Nissan (NSANY) and GM (GM) have all sought to sell electric vehicles in China. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Kandi Technologies' stock rose $1.66, or 8.5%, to $21.28. The shares are well off their high for the day of $22.22, but they have surged 80% so far this year. Tesla shares, which had spent some of the morning in slightly negative ground, were up about 1% near $222 per share just before noon.
