16:21 EDTHLFOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower in a session that saw the averages struggle for direction early before sellers gained control and pushed stocks lower through the second half of the session. With today's losses, the averages each finished the week with losses greater than 2%, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq losing 3% to close below 4,000 for the first time since early February. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Producer Price Index jumped 0.5% in March, versus expectations for it to be up 0.1%. The University of Michigan consumer sentiment reading jumped to 82.6 in the preliminary April look, which was better than forecast and its highest reading since July. COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC) kicked off earnings season for the major banks, with their quarterly results, and stocks, moving in opposite directions following the news. Dow member JPMorgan fell $2.10, or 3.66%, to $55.30 after its earnings per share and revenue significantly trailed consensus estimates. Shares of Wells gained 37c, or 0.78%, to $48.08 after the bank's profits beat the consensus forecast. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was BofI Holding (BOFI), up $6.02, or 8.09%, to $80.46 near midday after the company last night announced a deal to acquire H&R Block's (HRB) bank assets. H&R Block shares fell 78c, or 2.74%, to $27.64. Also higher was Zygo (ZIGO), up $4.75, or 32.36%, to $19.43 after the company agreed to be acquired by Ametek (AME) for $19.25 per share in cash in a deal that represents an aggregate enterprise value of $280M for Zygo. Among the noteworthy losers was Herbalife (HLF), down $8.36, or 13.97%, to $51.48 after a report late in the session from the Financial Times said the company is facing a criminal investigation from the U.S. Department of Justice and FBI regarding its business practices. Also lower was NQ Mobile (NQ), a recent target of noted short-seller Carson Block, down $3.29, or 20.58%, to $12.70 after its profit missed expectations and the company disclosed that it found accounting errors in its recent reports. INDEXES: The Dow was down 143.47, or 0.89%, to 16,026.75; the S&P 500 was down 17.39, or 0.95%, to 1,815.69; the Nasdaq was down 54.37, or 1.34%, to 3,999.73.

13:43 EDTICEFidelity to pitch new lost cost trading venue to large asset managers, WSJ says
Fidelity is working on a new trading venue, dubbed "Sakura," that it hopes will be a collaboration among big mutual-fund firms to reduce costs and streamline trading and will be an improvement over other "dark pools," reported The Wall Street Journal, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The report said Fidelity is in the initial planning stages and has just started pitching the idea to other large asset managers. Publicly traded fund managers include BlackRock (BLK), Franklin Resources (BEN) and T. Rowe Price (TROW), while Investment Technology Group (ITG) currently operates dark pools that facilitate block trading among large institutions. Exchange operators Nasdaq (NDAQ) and Intercontinentalexchange's (ICE) NYSE have previously testified to legislators that too much trading occurs in dark pools, hurting investors. Reference Link
