16:38 EDTTPX, VRTX, CTSH, ABT, CECO, DISOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, as investors had a muted reaction to the anti-austerity backlash evidenced in two elections in Europe. Stock futures pointed to a lower open throughout the pre-market trading session but moved off their low prior to the opening bell. The futures action led to a lower but stable open with the market essentially hitting its lows soon after the open. The market began to drift off its lows after the first hour of trading and by midday made it back to positive ground. The market continued to drift for most the remainder of the session until a downturn into the close pushed the S&P and Nasdaq back down to finish the day near the flat line... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., consumer credit increased by $21.36B in March, versus expectations of an increase of $9.8B. In Europe, Francois Hollande defeated Nicolas Sarkozy in France's presidential election and voting in Greece’s general election showed a dramatic swing toward anti-austerity groups and away from the pro-Europe parties...

Noteworthy losers included Cognizant (CTSH), down $13.35, or 19.16%, to $56.31, after the company's earnings beat consensus but it said its revising its guidance to be more conservative after seeing slower-than-expected acceleration in demand, and Tempur-Pedic (TPX), down $8.42, or 14.85%, to $48.29, as Raymond James said in a note to investors that the company will offer a discount on one of its most profitable mattresses, the Cloud Supreme, which the firm said was unusual for the company...
