17:12 EDTBAC, HTZ, BRK.A, MET, HPQOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
The broader market opened slightly lower as investors moved to the sidelines awaiting the release of the minutes from last monthís FOMC meeting. There was little else for investors to key in on as the geopolitical situations were fairly quiet and the economic calendar was devoid of any major releases. As a result the averages drifted throughout the morning but by lunch time had crossed into positive ground. From there the Dow would take the lead while the Nasdaq lagged. The knee jerk reaction to the Fedís minutes, which showed a more heated debate about when to raised interest rates, pushed the market lower. After digesting the notes the market turned and closed with its fifth positive finish in the past six sessions. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The Mortgage Bankers' Association Purchase Applications showed a week-over-week drop of -0.4% in the purchase index, but a 3% rise in the refinance index... The EIA Petroleum Status Report showed a 4.5M draw in oil inventories to 362.5M barrels during last week... In the Fed minutes released at 2:00 pm ET, "many" FOMC members said that stimulus may have to be removed sooner than expected. COMPANY NEWS: After the close, Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) reported in-line Q3 earnings and Q4 guidance... Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) consented to a final judgment whereby it agreed to pay a civil penalty of $896,000 for failure to comply with the premerger reporting and waiting requirements of the Hart-Scott Rodino Act... Bank of America (BAC) reached a $17B settlement over mortgage backed securities sales, according to the Associated Press... MetLife (MET) has been moved closer to potentially being designated as a "systemically important financial institution," according to the Wall Street Journal. MAJOR MOVERS: Hertz (HTZ) rebounded after Carl Icahn reported an 8.48% stake in the company and said he plans to hold talks with the management. The stock closed down 3.9% after trading down over 9% intra-day. INDEXES: The Dow closed up 59.54, or 0.35%, to 16,979.13, the Nasdaq closed down 1.03, or 0.02%, to 4,526.48, and the S&P 500 closed up 4.91, or 0.25%, to 1,986.51.

16:47 EDTHTZHertz receives NYSE notice of non-compliance
Hertz Global Holdings announced that on March 18, it received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange notifying the company of its failure to meet a NYSE listing standard resulting from the company's failure to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014. As previously disclosed, the company was unable to timely file its 2014 Form 10-K with the SEC because of the ongoing nature of the company's previously announced thorough review and investigation of its internal financial records for fiscal years 2011, 2012 and 2013. As a result of the ongoing nature of this review and its potential impact on the company's 2014 financial results, the company was unable to file the 2014 Form 10-K by the extended due date of March 17, 2015. The financial review and investigation by the company is ongoing. Hertz continues to expect that it will not be able to file updated financial statements, including the 2014 Form 10-K, before mid-2015, and there can be no assurance that the process will be completed by that time.
