17:12 EDTGM, ETFC, AMTD, SCHW, FB, AMZN, NFLX, TROX, APC, IBKRMarket finishes mixed as Nasdaq sells off into weekend
Stocks ended the week mixed as momentum stocks came under heavy selling pressure late in the week as investors continued to rotate out of a number of technology and biotech names. MACRO NEWS: The U.S. employment report for March showed the economy added 192k jobs for the month, slightly less than economists' forecasts. The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 6.7%. Markit's U.S. manufacturing PMI reading earlier in the week also came in a bit below expectations... In China, manufacturing PMI data beat expectations, coming in at a 50.3 reading against expectations for 50.1, with the reading indicating expansion in the world's second largest economy... Headlines continued out of Ukraine, as the U.S. and Europe remain focused on the situation, though U.S. investors have continued to trade less and less, if at all, on news from that region. COMPANY NEWS: General Motors (GM) CEO Mary Barra spent two days testifying on Capitol Hill, fielding questions and accusations about the company's defective ignition switches, which have been blamed in at least 13 deaths. Shares of the carmaker were roughly flat for the week... Anadarko Petroleum (APC) surged after announcing a $5.15B settlement related to environmental damage claims sought by the federal government and creditors of bankrupt Tronox (TROX). Shares of the oil company gained more than 15% Thursday after the news, closing the week up 19% to $101.05... A number of momentum stocks saw aggressive selling in the final two sessions of the week, namely Netflix (NFLX), Amazon (AMZN), and Facebook (FB), among several other Nasdaq constituents from the technology and biotech sectors... Michael Lewis released his latest book, "Flash Boys," which highlights high-frequency trading in the stock market, with Lewis starting his numerous media appearances on last Sunday's "60 Minutes," during which he called the markets "rigged." Concerns over potential changes that could be imposed on brokerage firms by regulators put some pressure on stocks in that space, including Charles Schwab (SCHW), TD Ameritrade (AMTD), E-Trade (ETFC), and Interactive Brokers (IBKR). INDEXES: The Dow was up 0.5% to 16,412.71, the S&P 500 was up 0.4% to 1,865.09, and the Nasdaq was down 0.7% to 4,127.73.
