11:02 EDTIBM, SLBStocks post weekly gain after oil rebounds
Stocks recovered late in the week to post their first weekly gain of the new year as equities continue to be correlated closely with the oil market. A plunge in oil led equities lower early in the holiday shortened week, but as oil prices rebounded to close the week out, the major averages followed suit. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., the consumer price index fell 0.1% during December, versus expectations for a flat reading. The core reading, which excludes food and energy, showed prices rose 0.1% from the prior month, versus expectations for an increase of 0.2%. Initial jobless claims rose to 293,000 last week, topping the expectation for 278,000 first-time claims. Markit's flash manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for January rose 1.5 points to 52.7, better than the 51.0 reading that was expected. Existing home sales climbed 14.7% to a 5.46M rate in December, topping the 5.2M rate that was forecast... In Asia, China's national bureau of statistics estimated that GDP growth slowed to 6.8% in the last quarter of the year, dipping from 6.9% growth in the previous quarter. China's industrial output rose 5.9% from a year earlier in December, compared with the consensus forecast for a 6% increase. Japan's Nikkei average was down early in the week, even falling into bear market territory, but rallied nearly 6% on Friday after the Nikkei Asian Review said that the Bank of Japan is taking a "serious look" at additional easing... In Europe, the European Central Bank left its key interest rates unchanged. However, at an associated press conference, ECB President Mario Draghi acknowledged downside risks were increasing again, meaning the bank may need to "review and possibly reconsider" its monetary policy stance at its next meeting in March. Markit's flash PMI for the euro zone slid to an 11-month low of 53.5, missing expectations for a more modest dip to a 54.2 reading. The International Monetary Fund cut its global growth forecasts for the third time in less than a year. The IMF now estimates that the world economy will grow 3.4% this year and 3.6% next year, down from its prior forecasts of 3.6% and 3.8% growth, respectively. COMPANY NEWS: On Tuesday, Morgan Stanley (MS) advanced 1% after its earnings and revenue topped analysts' consensus forecast. Big bank peer Bank of America (BAC) slid 1% after its earnings also beat expectations but its revenue narrowly missed the consensus estimate... On Wednesday, IBM (IBM) slid nearly 5% after reporting better than expected earnings and revenue for the fourth quarter, but forecasting below-consensus profits for the new year... On Thursday, Verizon (VZ) was among the best performers on the Dow, advancing over 3% after its earnings, revenue and wireless subscriber additions all topped expectations. Conversely, fellow Dow member Travelers (TRV) slid almost 1% after releasing its own quarterly results... On Friday, American Express (AXP) sunk more than 12% after the card issuer reported stronger than expected quarterly results but its 2017 profit guidance came in below the consensus outlook. The company's pledge to take out $1B in costs by the end of 2017 did little to change the mood of analysts or investors. Fellow Dow member GE (GE) slid a bit more than 1% after reporting better than expected earnings but lower than expected quarterly revenue... Schlumberger (SLB) shares gained 6% after the oil services giant reported earnings that topped expectations, approved a quarterly dividend of 50c per share and a new share repurchase program of $10B and said it plans to cut 10,000 more jobs... Netflix (NFLX) reported fourth quarter earnings that beat analyst estimates, powered by better than expected international subscriber growth. The numbers were met with positive commentary by several research firms, though decelerating U.S. subscriber growth was highlighted by bears as a warning sign for the company... Deutsche Bank (DB) disclosed that it expects a EUR2.1B net loss for the quarter due to a number of charges, including expected litigation costs of EUR1.2B... Xilinx (XLNX) advanced after reporting its third quarter numbers. The news may have been overshadowed, however, by a regulatory filing showing new agreements with its top executives, with several analysts highlighting that the change could signal a takeover is in the cards in the future... Alkermes (ALKS) plunged more than 44% after disclosing that two of three Phase 3 studies of its experimental depression disorder treatment did not meet their primary efficacy endpoints. INDEXES: For the four-day week, the Dow gained about 0.67% to close at 16,093.51, the S&P 500 rose about 1.4% to close at 1,906.90, and the Nasdaq increased about 2.3% to close at 4,591.18.
