16:15 EDTPTCT, ARUN, GME, ARO, HPQOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in quiet fashion, though with an upward bias, and proceeded to trade that way throughout the session. The averages drifted higher in a broad based move that saw each of the major averages tack on gains of at least 0.3%. The volume was light, as was to be expected prior to a holiday weekend, and there was little volatility as the market moved in a narrow range once it found its level. Ending the week on a high note, the benchmark S&P 500 managed to close above 1,900 for the first time. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., new home sales rose 6.4% in April to a rate of 433K. The percentage increase trailed expectations, but the rate was higher than expected due to upward revisions to last months figures. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) rose $2.00, or 6.1%, to $33.72 after the computer and printer making giant reported second quarter adjusted earnings per share that matched estimates and announced additional job cuts. Following the report, Citigroup said it sees "meaningful upside" to the stock and believes HP's cost savings are underappreciated. After HP's report of roughly in-line results and more layoffs, Wells Fargo noted that HP said it was more confident in its growth outlook. The firm thinks the layoffs may reflect newly discovered cost cutting opportunities, rather than end market pressures, and kept an Outperform rating on the shares. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was PTC Therapeutics (PTCT), which surged $4.71, or 30.74%, to $20.03 after the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use of the European Medicines Agency adopted a positive opinion regarding the company's application for a conditional marketing authorization of Translarna for the treatment of nonsense mutation Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Also higher was video game retailer GameStop (GME), which rose $1.55, or 4.2%, to $38.43 after the company reported better than expected first quarter profits and backed its fiscal 2014 guidance. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were apparel retailer Aeropostale (ARO), which fell $1.09, or 24.12%, to $3.43, and network solutions provider Aruba Networks (ARUN), which slid $2.17, or 10.82%, to $17.89. INDEXES: The Dow was up 63.19, or 0.38%, to 16,606.27, the Nasdaq was up 31.47, or 0.76%, to 4,185.81, and the S&P 500 was up 8.04, or 0.42%, to 1,900.53.
