16:43 EDTGM, KKD, FCEL, PLUG, AMZN, JOSB, MW, BA, HLF, CALLMarket finishes week lower as China, Ukraine weigh on shares
Stocks ended the week lower as investors worried about the impact of slowing growth in China and the situation in Ukraine. MACRO NEWS: China reported weaker than expected retail sales and urban fixed asset investment for the two month period ended February 28. The data exacerbated fears about a potential significant Chinese economic slowdown... Also fanning fears on Wall Street was the standoff in Ukraine. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned that Russia would face consequences if it continued to occupy Ukraine on Monday. Kerry's statement fueled concerns about a potential escalation of the standoff... U.S. economic data was mixed as February retail sales and jobless claims were better than expected, but an index of consumer sentiment missed expectations. COMPANY NEWS: The Department of Justice and the Department of Transportation stated that they would investigate General Motors' (GM) handling of problems with the ignition on some of its vehicles... The government is also probing Herbalife (HLF), as the FTC disclosed that it was launching an investigation of the multi-level marketer... Another American company that found itself facing new difficulties was Boeing (BA), which disclosed that it had found cracks in some wings of its 787 Dreamliner planes. As a result, the delivery of some of the aircraft will be delayed.... Menswear retailers Men's Wearhouse (MW) and Jos. A. Bank (JOSB) ended their long and public courtship as Men's Wearhouse struck a deal to acquire its peer for $65 per share in cash... Amazon.com (AMZN) raised the price of its Prime service by 25% for most of its customer base... In earnings news, VoIP phone service provider magicJack (CALL) rose after reporting stronger than expected results and providing higher than expected revenue guidance, and doughnut retailer Krispy Kreme (KKD) climbed after reporting slightly weaker than expected results but raising its full-year EPS guidance and increasing its share repurchase allocation. On the other hand, fuel cell maker Plug Power (PLUG) finished the week lower after the company reported an in-line EPS loss, but research firms Roth Capital and Cowen downgraded the stock. Another company in the sector, FuelCell (FCEL), also ended the week lower after reporting in-line results. Both stocks had jumped by large amounts in previous weeks.

12:35 EDTAMZNFTC alleges Amazon billed parents for children's unauthorized in-app charges
Amazon has billed parents and other account holders for millions of dollars in unauthorized in-app charges incurred by children, according to a Federal Trade Commission complaint filed today in federal court. The FTC’s lawsuit seeks a court order requiring refunds to consumers for the unauthorized charges and permanently banning the company from billing parents and other account holders for in-app charges without their consent. According to the complaint, Amazon keeps 30% of all in-app charges. In its complaint, the FTC alleges that Amazon violated the FTC Act by billing parents and other Amazon account holders for charges incurred by their children without the permission of the parent or other account holder. Amazon’s setup allowed children playing these kids’ games to spend unlimited amounts of money to pay for virtual items within the apps such as “coins,” “stars,” and “acorns” without parental involvement.
