16:39 EDTRADOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower as selling pressure took hold early in the session and did not relent. The averages closed near their worst levels, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq down more than 3%. With today's close, each of the major indexes is now lower for the year. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial claims for unemployment benefits fell to 300K last week, hitting their lowest weekly level since May 2007. The the timing of Easter and Passover, as well as other seasonal factors, however, may have lead many to discount the figure. Export prices rose 0.8% in March, while import prices grew 0.6%, both of which were greater than expected advances. In China, exports fell 6.6% from a year earlier in March, while imports plunged 11.3%. Economists had predicted year-over-year gains for both. COMPANY NEWS: eBay (EBAY) and activist investor Carl Icahn settled their proxy contest, with Icahn withdrawing both his two board nominees and his proposal for eBay to spin off its PayPal unit. As part of its agreement with Icahn, eBay will expand the number of independent directors on its board to 10 and add David Dorman to serve in that capacity. The online retail marketplace was among the many tech names suffering losses, closing the session down $1.81, or 3.24%, at $54.08... Ally Financial (ALLY), formerly the auto finance and financial services arm of General Motors (GM), lost $1.02, or 4.08%, to close at $23.98 in its first day of trade following its return to the public markets after having price its return offering at $25.00 per share... General Motors made news again as well by confirming that two of its engineers have been placed on paid leave as part of the company's ongoing ignition switch recall probe. The company also added ignition lock cylinders to its safety recall of 2.2 million vehicles in the U.S. and said it expects to take a $1.3B charge in the first quarter due to recall-related repairs... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was drugstore operator Rite Aid (RAD), which rose 54c, or 8.44%, to $6.94 after reporting earnings and revenue and that beat expectations and giving a revenue outlook for its fiscal 2015 that came in above estimates. Also higher following a better than expected earnings report was casual restaurant owner Ruby Tuesday (RT), which advanced 72c, or 12.08%, to $6.68. Among the noteworthy losers was data security solutions provider Imperva (IMPV), down $21.73, or 43.7%, to $28.00 which plunged 41% after the company slashed its first quarter profit and sales outlook. Another name in computer security, FireEye (FEYE), was among a a number of so-called "momentum" stocks that fell during the session, sliding $6.64, or 11.77%, to $49.75. Other momentum stocks that fell included 3D Systems (DDD), down $5.90, or 10.79%, to $48.78, and Yelp (YELP), down $7.78, or 10.92%, to $63.47.
