16:24 EDTZLC, CG, FSLR, VR, DD, CIEN, FSROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower in another day of sluggish trading prior to the holiday weekend. Stock futures were negative in early trading, leading to a lower open for the broader market. The market generally ignored the flat economic reports, including the personal spending and income reports and the jobless claims data. The averages remained in a narrow range for the first hour of trading but then moved another leg lower, where they remained for most of the session, before another downdraft into the close. The news flow was light, as was the volume, as investors have not traded with great conviction this week ahead of Labor Day... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, 374,000 initial jobless claims were reported, versus the expected 370,000. Personal income rose 0.3% during the month of July, which matched expectations, while personal spending was up 0.4%, versus expectations for an increase of 0.5%... COMPANY NEWS: DuPont (DD) agreed to sell its Performance Coatings business to Carlyle Group (CG) for $4.9B... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Flagstone Reinsurance (FSR), up $1.54, or 21.81%, to $8.60, after agreeing to be acquired by Validus (VR) in a cash and stock deal, and Zale (ZLC), up 70c, or 16.17%, to $5.03, as it was upgraded to a Buy rating at Northcoast and continued yesterday's move higher after earnings. Noteworthy losers included Ciena (CIEN), down $3.26, or 19.50%, to $13.46, following its disappointing Q3 results and Q4 guidance, and First Solar (FSLR), down $4.50, or 18.60%, to $19.70, though Avian said the sell-off in shares related to a Bloomberg story about a halt of panel deliveries at the Agua Caliente project was overdone since the information was not new... INDICES: The Dow lost 106.77, or 0.81%, to 13,000.71; the Nasdaq fell 32.48, or 1.05%, to 3,048.71; and the S&P 500 dropped 11.01, or 0.78%, to 1,399.48.
