17:00 EDTATRI, GRMN, CETV, MGM, CHS, FIRE, TOL, DELL, HSTMOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower, as the market took a breather from its steady move higher so far this year. The open was slightly lower following a weak pre-market session by the futures. The weakness was attributed to concerns over whether Greece could adhere to its austerity measures over the medium term, as well as disappointing manufacturing data from Europe and China. The market moved to its lowest levels of the session near mid-day, following statements by the Obama administration that corporate tax rates would be reduced but that interest would be taxed as ordinary income. The market quickly found a level where it sat for a couple of hours before moving back towards the flat line. There was little in the way of catalysts to move the buyers off the sidelines, as the domestic economic calendar remained quiet and there were few headlines of note from Europe... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, existing home sales rose by 4.3% in January, but the prior month's growth rate was revised lower. The resulting annual sales rate of 4.57M homes sold was down slightly from the annual rate of 4.61M reported a month ago. Also of note was a proposal from the Obama administration to cut the maximum U.S. corporate tax rate to 28% from 35% while eliminating many existing tax loopholes. Internationally, a euro zone composite PMI and a separate Chinese PMI reading both came in at 49.7, indicating contraction... MARKET NEWS: Dell (DELL) fell about 6% in heavy trading as it was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citigroup following its Q4 report. Citi cited weakening prospects for additional margin expansion and lowered its price target in the name to $19 from $20... Among others reporting earnings, winners included Chico's FAS (CHS) and Garmin (GRMN); losers included Toll Brothers (TOL) and MGM Resorts (MGM)... MAJOR MOVERS: Notable gainers included Healthstream (HSTM), up $5.21, or 30.05%, to $22.55, and SourceFire (FIRE), up $9.36, or 26.13%, to $45.18, following their earnings reports. Noteworthy losers included Central Euro Media (CETV), down $1.55, or 18.24%, to $6.95, and Newfield Exploration (NFX), down $5.37, or 12.71%, to $36.88, after disappointing quarterly results... INDICES: The Dow fell 27.02, or 0.21%, to 12,938.67; the Nasdaq slid 15.40, or 0.52%, to 2,933.17; and the S&P 500 dropped 4.55, or 0.33%, to 1,357.66.
