16:57 EDTHOTOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the day. The market struggled from the outset following disappointing data that showed GDP growth was anemic in the first three months of this year. The market moved in a narrow range in the early part of the session as investors waited for the results of the FOMC meeting. The initial reaction to the FOMC rate and policy statement was a bit of buying, which brought the averages within striking distance of the flat line. There was little in the way of momentum, however, and the sellers regained control into the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., GDP growth was reported to have slowed to a 0.2% rate in Q1, which was much weaker than the 1% annualized growth rate that was expected. The pending home sales index rose 1.1% to 108.6 in March, which was a tick better than forecast. As expected, the Federal Reserve announced that it would keep the target range for the federal funds rate at 0%-0.25%. The Fed said that it anticipates raising the target range when the labor market has improved further and it is reasonably confident that inflation will increase to 2% over the medium term. The central bank reiterated that it anticipates that economic conditions may warrant keeping the interest rate below normal levels for some time, even after employment and inflation reach its goals. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of (CRM) jumped $7.76, or 11.6%, to $74.65 after Bloomberg said the company has hired financial advisers to field takeover offers after the company was approached by a potential acquirer... Starwood Hotels (HOT) climbed $6.73, or 8.33%, to $87.53 after the company announced that it would explore "a full range" of strategic and financial alternatives to increase shareholder value. Starwood also reported first quarter earnings per share from continuing operations, excluding certain items, that topped consensus this morning. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was GoPro (GPRO), which rallied $5.94, or 12.63%, to $52.96 after the action camera maker's first quarter results and second quarter outlook widely topped analysts’ consensus estimates. Also higher was XPO Logistics (XPO), which jumped $6.38, or 15.03%, to $48.83 after agreeing to acquire Norbert Dentressangle, a provider of contract logistics. Among the noteworthy losers was Stratasys (SSYS), which fell $11.37, or 22.16%, to $39.93 after the 3D printer maker reported preliminary earnings below analyst expectations and cut its fiscal year guidance. Also lower were shares of Lumber Liquidators (LL), which dropped $6.66, or 19.93%, to $26.76 after the company reported earnings, said that its CFO has left and disclosed that the DOJ indicated that it is seeking criminal charges under the Lacey Act. INDEXES: The Dow fell 74.61, or 0.41%, to 18,035.53, the Nasdaq lost 31.78, or 0.63%, to 5,023.64, and the S&P 500 declined 7.91, or 0.37%, to 2,106.85.
