16:23 EDTFDX, GOLD, SWHC, RGR, PCLN, MCD, SONC, GME, DG, SCVL, XOn 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.
