17:06 EDTSAAS, SSYS, COUP, TWX, THOR, FOXAOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory and appeared ready to build on yesterday’s gains. There was little to point to as a catalyst, but the early move was likely helped by better than expected initial jobless claims data and an agreement to an extended ceasefire by between Gaza and Israel. The market saw its highs shortly after the open and then began to drift lower. By noon each of the major equity indexes had crossed into negative ground and by mid-afternoon the sellers were in control and renewed the selling trend that has been prevalent in recent sessions. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims dropped 14K to 289K in the week ended August 2, versus expectations for 300K new claims. Consumer credit grew by $17.3B in June, versus expectations for it to have increased $18.3B for the month. In Europe, both the European Central Bank and the Bank of England decided to keep their main interest rates unchanged. COMPANY NEWS: 21st Century Fox (FOXA) advanced $1.63, or 5.04%, to $33.96 after the company reported higher than expected fourth quarter earnings and the stock was upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Cowen. Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch spoke on the company's earnings conference call, which is a bit outside of the recent norm, and said the company's decision to no longer pursue an acquisition of Time Warner (TWX) is "resolute." Chief Operating Officer Chase Carey echoed that the company is "done" as far as Time Warner and added that 21st Century Fox says will not pursue any other content company. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was inContact (SAAS), which gained $1.34, or 17.45%, to $9.02 and was upgraded at Oppenheimer and Benchmark Co. after reporting better than expected Q2 results. Also higher was Stratasys (SSYS), which rose $14.78, or 14.94%, to $113.69 after the company reported stronger than expected second quarter results and raised its guidance. Among the noteworthy losers was Thoratec (THOR), which fell $9.83, or 30.18%, to $22.74 and was downgraded by at least four Street firms following the company's Q2 miss and lowered guidance. Also lower after its earnings report were shares of Coupons.com (COUP), which fell $4.58, or 23.5%, to $14.91. INDEXES: The Dow fell 75.07, or 0.46%, to 16,368.27, the Nasdaq dropped 20.08, or 0.46%, to 4,334.97, and the S&P 500 slipped 10.67, or 0.56%, to 1,909.57.
