12:14 EDTHPQOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session deep in negative territory and have remained there throughout the morning. There has been little in the way of buying as the downward pressure in the market has not shown any sign of letting up. There is also little in the way of explanation as to why the market is so weak other than continued disappointment in the Fed's interest rate decision and the ongoing concern over China's economic growth. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA home price index rose 0.6% to 224.5 in July, which was better than the 0.4% rise that was expected. The Richmond Fed factory index fell to -5 in September, versus the reading of 2 that was expected. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Groupon (GRPN) slumped 2.5% after the online and mobile deal provider said it plans to cut more than 1,000 jobs relating primarily to the company's international operations. The news is the latest in a recent run of job cut announcements, after HP Enterprise said last week that it expects 25,000-30,000 people to leave the company and Johnson Controls (JCI) recently announced plans to reduce its global salaried workforce by as many as 3,000 people... Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs (GS) chairman and CEO, disclosed that he was told by doctors that he has lymphoma. "Fortunately, my form of lymphoma is highly curable and my doctors' and my own expectation is that I will be cured," Blankfein stated in an open letter that was shared by the bank. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Weatherford (WFT), which rose 9.6% after stating that it has decided not to pursue its previously announced concurrent public offerings of ordinary shares of the company and mandatorily exchangeable subordinated notes. Also higher was Vascular Biogenics (VBLT), which gained 15% to around $9.30 per share after the stock was initiated with a Buy rating and $25 price target at Chardan. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were ConAgra (CAG) and Carnival (CCL), which each fell more than 5%, and Red Hat (RHT), which slid 2%. Also lower were shares of Staples (SPLS) and Office Depot (ODP), which fell 7% and 8%, respectively, after the New York Post said a top FTC regulator may be leaning toward recommending against approving their merger agreement. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 263.77, or 1.6%, to 16,246.42, the Nasdaq was down 99.52, or 2.06%, to 4,729.44, and the S&P 500 was down 32.51, or 1.65%, to 1,934.46.
10:45 EDTWMTReimbursement pressure on drug stores should moderate, says Cleveland Research
Cleveland Research analysts Rob Eich and Rob Stuyck said the firm's work indicates that stepdown reimbursement rates will be more manageable for drug store operators and that generic inflation will be less of a headwind for the group in FY16. However, Direct and Indirect Remuneration clauses will still be a source of margin pressure, the firm said, noting that several payers will be introducing a DIR next year. Cleveland Research has Neutral ratings on CVS (CVS), Walgreens (WBA), Rite Aid (RAD) and Wal-Mart (WMT).
10:01 EDTHPQHP acquisition of Stratasys would make sense, says Jefferies
Jefferies noted that HP (HPQ) management, during the company's recent analyst meeting, said they were looking to partner with or acquire a 3D printing company. Analyst Jason North believes a larger acquisition is most attractive, as it would speed HP's time to the market by 1-2 years as the company acquires a sales channel. North said Stratasys (SSYS) makes the most sense given its strong reseller network, FDM jetting, stereolithography and direct metal laser sintering potential, and other technologies. The firm rates Stratasys a Buy with a $44 price target on shares.
