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.

Hertz released Q1 operating results and updated the status of its fleet renewal and capacity plans, $200M annual cost reduction program, senior management hiring initiatives and financial restatement process. During the first quarter, the company made progress in the following areas: The U.S. fleet has been significantly renewed since late September with a 47% improvement in the number of vehicles at or below 30,000 miles. An aggressive disposition program as well as new fleet acquisitions have culminated in improved product quality. Customer confidence is returning as a result of the younger fleet and investments in service delivery. Hertz's U.S. car rental Net Promoter Score, a measure of customer satisfaction, eclipsed last year's level and continues to improve. Hertz has further strengthened its leadership team by adding expertise in the areas of revenue management, sales, customer service, information technology, and fleet and procurement, which will enable the company to deliver on its performance improvement plan. Data management and forecasting systems have been enhanced for more reliable visibility to fleet, pricing and demand trends. The cost structure is improving as the company has made significant progress toward its goal of delivering $200M in annualized cost savings by year end 2015. As part of the company's continued, comprehensive review of the profitability of its operations, it has conducted a location-by-location assessment of its U.S. off-airport retail store profitability. While the company remains committed to its off-airport operation, by the end of Q2, it will have closed approximately 200 stores, representing 5% of the total off-airport locations and less than 1% of the vehicle fleet. Closing these stores will result in approximately $10M in annual savings. The company will continue to rigorously review new store openings and the ongoing profitability of the existing locations on a quarterly basis.
