16:30 EDTCSCO, WMT, KSS, OVTI, RRGB, NDLSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and drifted higher throughout the session. The president gave an optimistic press conference about the situation in Iraq, followed by press reports that the nation's incumbent Prime Minister has conceded defeat and will back the PM-designate. In another positive international development, a ceasefire was called by Russia to allow humanitarian efforts to take place in Ukraine. Investors are setting their sights now on tomorrow’s economic reports, which include the producer prices index, treasury bond flows, industrial production and capacity utilization reports and the University of Michigan consumer confidence report. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose to 311K in the second week of August, versus expectations for 295K claims. Import prices fell 0.2%, while export prices were flat in July. In Europe, growth in the shared currency zone stagnated, with Q2 GDP slipping to unchanged. The biggest economy in the region, Germany, saw its GDP contract 0.2% in the quarter. COMPANY NEWS: Cisco Systems (CSCO) was the laggard on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, falling 66c, or 2.62%, to $24.54 after saying it does not expect emerging markets growth for "several quarters" and that it expects to cut 6,000 jobs, or 8% of its workforce. The move lower came despite its report of higher than expected sales and profits for its fiscal fourth quarter and multiple Street research firms raising their price targets on Cisco's stock... Another member of the Dow, Wal-Mart (WMT), reported second quarter results that were in-line with expectations, but the world's largest retailer cut its fiscal year earnings outlook citing additional investments in e-commerce and higher U.S. health-care costs than previously anticipated. Despite the lowered guidance, Wal-Mart shares finished the day up 36c, or 0.49%, at $74.39. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was OmniVision (OVTI), which rose $3.69, or 15.0%, to $28.29 after announcing its board has received a preliminary non-binding proposal from Hua Capital Management to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of the company for $29.00 per share in cash. Also higher was department store operator Kohl's (KSS), which gained $1.80, or 3.27%, to $56.91 after reporting better than expected second quarter earnings and noting that its sales improved as the quarter progressed, with July comparable sales turning positive. Among the noteworthy losers was Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (RRGB), which fell $11.92, or 18.47%, to $52.63 after the company reported lower than anticipated second quarter results and its stock was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow. Also lower after reporting quarterly earnings that missed expectations was another restaurant operator, Noodles & Company (NDLS), which dropped $4.05, or 16.08%, to $21.16. INDEXES: The Dow gained 61.78, or 0.37%, to 16,713.58, the Nasdaq advanced 18.88, or 0.43%, to 4,453.00, and the S&P 500 added 8.46, or 0.43%, to 1,955.18.

13:04 EDTCSCOFinisar retreats after analyst cuts on pricing, demand worries
Shares of optical components maker Finisar (FNSR) are falling after research firm Jefferies downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy in a note to investors today, citing pricing and demand concerns. WHAT'S NEW: After conducting checks, Jefferies analyst James Kisner wrote that Finisar is facing "brutal" prices for datacom optics, particularly in China. Prices for telecom components in North America are also challenging for Finisar, he reported. Various low-cost competitors are driving down prices for datacom optics, while AT&T (T) is trying to force optical systems vendors to cut the prices of their components by 40%, Kisner stated. Meanwhile, demand for mobile backhaul optics slowed significantly in China over the last month, and two of Finisar's customers - Cisco (CSCO) and Huawei - are exploring alternatives to Finisar's products, Kisner indicated. Additionally, Intel (INTC) and numerous start-ups may launch products that will compete with those of Finisar, potentially cutting into its market share beginning in the second half of 2015, the analyst warned. He cut his price target on the shares to $19 from $25. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Finisar slumped 5.5% to $19. Other optical components makers also dropped, with Oclaro (OCLR) falling 1% to $1.75 and JDS Uniphase (JDSU) losing 2% to $11.30.
