16:27 EDTSPLS, ICPT, CAT, URBN, ARX, DKS, HD, TJX, RRGB, GMOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and were never able to make it back to unchanged. There was little to lure buyers off the sidelines to buy, as the economic calendar remained quiet. Adding to the pressure was a speech by Philadelphia Fed President Charles Plosser, in which he mentioned the eventual raising of rates and the potential for that to come sooner than expected if the economy picks up steam. The retail sector led the losers following disappointing earnings reports from Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS), Staples (SPLS), TJX (TJX) and Urban Outfitters (URBN). ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was released for the second day in a row. COMPANY NEWS: Home Depot (HD) led the few advancers on the Dow, rising $1.46, or 1.91%, to $77.96, after the company's earnings narrowly beat expectations and it raised its FY14 EPS view to come in-line with analyst consensus estimate. Caterpillar (CAT) was the weakest member of the blue chip index, sliding $3.83, or 3.63%, to $101.56, after it reported April dealer retail sales trends that weakened relative to March... General Motors (GM) shares fell $1.18, or 3.45%, to $33.07 after the company announced it is recalling an additional 2.42M vehicles in four separate U.S. recalls. The automaker added $200M to the charge it expects to take in Q2 related to its recalls, bringing the total potential charge up to $400M. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Aeroflex (ARX), which rose $2.11, or 25.39%, to $10.42 after Cobham agreed to acquire the company for $10.50 per share in cash. Also higher was Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (RRGB), which advanced $7.95, or 12.45%, to $71.80 after its sales and profits beat expectations for its fiscal first quarter. Among the noteworthy losers was Dick's Sporting Goods, which fell $9.56, or 17.98%, to $43.60 after it issued a worse than expected outlook for the current quarter and fiscal year, pointing to weakness it sees continuing in its golf and hunting segments. Also lower were shares of Intercept Pharmaceuticals (ICPT), which fell $36.66, or 14.1%, to $223.34 as The Street reported that the company knew last January that a trial of its liver disease drug was halted partially due to patients' abnormal cholesterol levels, but did not disclose the information to investors. INDEXES: The Dow was down 137.55, or 0.83%, to 16,374.31, the Nasdaq was down 28.92, or 0.7%, to 4,096.89, and the S&P 500 was down 12.25, or 0.65%, to 1,872.83.
