16:23 EDTGOLD, PCLN, GME, FDX, SWHC, MCD, DG, X, RGR, SONC, SCVLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower, as reports of contraction in manufacturing in both China and the euro zone fueled worries about global growth prospects. Stock futures indicated a lower open and the market reacted as expected after the opening bell. The averages opened in negative territory and were never able to put together any semblance of a rally. The move lower was broad based as evidenced by the market internals, which saw declining stocks heavily outpace advancers. The market generally ignored the day’s domestic economic data, including a drop in weekly jobless claims and a better than expected report on the leading economic indicators. The market has now lost ground for the third consecutive day after recently hitting fresh recovery highs... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 5K to 348K, versus the expected 350K. The leading economic indicators for February increased 0.7%, versus expectations of an increase of 0.6%. Home prices held flat on a seasonally-adjusted basis in January, versus expectations for an increase of 0.3%. In China, a "flash" purchasing managers index fell to 48.1 from 49.6 the month prior. In Europe, a composite euro zone PMI reading also fell, hitting 48.7... MARKET NEWS: FedEx (FDX) topped the list of companies reporting results this morning and saw its shares fall $3.32, or 3.46%, to $92.50 after its earnings beat expectations but its revenues and guidance disappointed. Among others reporting earnings, advancers included Shoe Carnival (SCVL) and Dollar General (DG); decliners included GameStop (GME) and Sonic (SONC)... McDonald's (MCD) CEO Jim Skinner announced his retirement, to be replaced by the company's current President and COO Donald Thompson... Priceline.com (PCLN) shares moved higher, up $8.34, or 1.19%, to $711.99, after Piper Jaffray said in a note to investors this morning that the company's shares could hit $1,000 by mid-2014 and that $50.00 of non-GAAP earnings per share in 2015 is realistic... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Sturm Ruger (RGR), up $5.63, or 13.31%, to $47.93, after saying its had to temporarily stop accepting new orders after its Q1 bookings topped 1M units, and Smith & Wesson (SWHC), up 78c, or 11.30%, to $7.68, as it also appeared to benefit from Sturm Ruger's news. Noteworthy losers included Randgold Resources (GOLD), down $12.80, or 12.38%, to $90.60, after reports of a coup attempt in Mali, and US Steel (X), down $1.82, or 5.82%, to $29.47, as one of the many materials names that moved lower on the signs of weakness in China... INDICES: The Dow fell 78.48, or 0.60%, to 13,046.14; the Nasdaq lost 12.00, or 0.39%, to 3,063.32; and the S&P 500 dropped 10.11, or 0.72%, to 1,392.78.

13:14 EDTDGFamily Dollar slides after holiday disappointment prompts store closures
Shares of discount retailer Family Dollar (FDO) are falling after the company reported second quarter earnings per share and revenue that fell below expectations, along with third quarter and FY14 projections that are lower than analysts' consensus. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Family Dollar reported second quarter earnings per share of 80c, which fell below analysts consensus of 90c. The company reported second quarter revenue of $2.72B, while analysts projected $2.77B. Family Dollar, which reported that its second quarter same-store-sales decreased by 3.8%, said the holiday season was challenged by "a more promotional competitive environment and a more financially constrained consumer" and that its results were also significantly impacted by severe winter weather like many retailers. The company expects third quarter earnings per share excluding-items to be 85c-95c, while analysts project a 98c consensus. Family Dollar said that it sees FY14 earnings per share excluding items to be $3.05-$3.25, which is at the lower end of analysts' estimations. Family Dollar noted that it expects to close nearly 370 underperforming stores in the second half of FY14 and slow new store growth beginning in FY15. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During Family Dollar's earnings conference call, the company said that it plans to slow square footage growth in the beginning of FY14 and said that it recently cut about 10% of its corporate workforce. ANALYST OPINION: Wells Fargo analyst Matt Nemer said Family Dollar's third quarter negative comp guidance and commentary about a challenging macro environment could pressure its own shares as well as those of its peers Dollar General (DG) and Dollar Tree (DLTR). However, Family Dollar's store closures combined with a decrease in future store growth could ultimately have positive implications for its competitors, Nemer added. On March 4, Credit Suisse said Family Dollar's underperformance compared to Dollar General and significant earnings possibilities gives the rationale for a potential merger of the two. On February 19, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Exstein suggested that Wal-Mart (WMT) should consider acquiring Family Dollar as a way to "jumpstart" its small store effort. CNBC's David Faber reported the same morning that Exstein published his note that Family Dollar was not holding any talks about selling itself at that time. PRICE ACTION: During afternoon trading, shares of Family Dollar decreased $1.54, or 2.61%, to $57.53, Dollar Tree dropped 2.5%, and Dollar General fell about 1.5%.
