16:22 EDTMBI, KING, GLUU, GM, TWGP, MUOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed with the Nasdaq the lone index to notch a gain for the session. Stocks began the session mixed and remained that way for most of the session, with the major averages trading in a narrow range. The volume was light, as is typical for a holiday shortened week. Investors are already on watch for the monthly jobs report, which will be released on Thursday before the market opens. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago ISM manufacturing index dipped more than expected to 62.6 in June from the seven-month high reading of 65.5 it hit last month. An index of pending home sales in May climbed 6.1%, soundly beating expectations and representing its biggest advance in more than four years. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of General Motors (GM) fell 32c, or 0.87%, to $36.30 after the company announced it will conduct six new safety recalls in the U.S. involving about 7.6M vehicles from the 1997 to 2014 model years. GM said it expects to take a charge of up to approximately $1.2B in the second quarter for the cost of recall-related repairs, which includes a previously disclosed $700M charge for recalls that have already been announced previously. The District Attorney of Orange County, California, filed a civil lawsuit against the carmaker, accusing it of endangering the public through deception regarding vehicle safety and reliability. Earlier in the day, compensation expert Ken Feinberg unveiled the awaited settlement plan to compensate victims in accidents involving GM recalled vehicles. Under the program, Feinberg will provide compensation ranging from $20,000 to several million dollars to anyone who can show they were hurt in a crash involving cars GM has recalled, with no limit, but a key condition is that the claimants show the vehicle's air bags didn't deploy in the crash. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was King Digital (KING), which rose $2.70, or 15.13%, to $20.55 after Cowen said in a note to investors that fears over competition in the mobile gaming space are overdone and kept its Outperform ratings on King and another stock in the space, Gluu Mobile (GLUU). Also higher was Micron (MU), which jumped $1.44, or 4.57%, to $32.95 after Credit Suisse added the stock to its Focus List, citing the company's diversification efforts and gross margin expansion opportunities. Among the noteworthy losers was Tower Group (TWGP), which dropped 23c, or 11.11%, to $1.80 after disclosing that representatives of ACP Re have suggested that an unwaived insolvency event has or may have occurred under the companies' merger agreement, though Tower said it does not believe that any such event has occurred. Also lower were shares of MBIA (MBI), which fell 45c, or 3.92%, to $11.04 after the stock was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG. INDEXES: The Dow fell 28.16, or 0.17%, to 16,823.68, the Nasdaq rose 10.25, or 0.23%, to 4,408.18, and the S&P 500 slipped 0.73, or 0.04%, to 1,960.23.
