16:24 EDTHPQ, DAL, TWTR, RH, INTC, LUV, LULUOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower after retail sales rose less than expected, first-time unemployment claims increased, and oil prices continued their move higher as Islamic militants threaten to take over more Iraqi cities, including the capital. The major averages opened just slightly below the flat line and that was about as close to positive territory as they would get for the session. The commodity sector, which is often a safe haven for money during times of geopolitical turmoil, had its biggest rally in more than three months. In contrast, the equity market continued its losing streak. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales rose only 0.3% in May, and were up 0.1% excluding autos, as both growth figures missed the consensus forecast. Initial jobless claims rose to 317K in the week ended June 7, which was above the expectation for 310K new claims. Import and export prices both rose 0.1% in May. Business inventories rose 0.6% in April, with sales up 0.7%. COMPANY NEWS: Twitter (TWTR) confirmed a report from Re/code that Ali Rowghani has resigned from his position as Chief Operating Officer. Rowghani will continue to be an employee and act as a strategic advisor to the CEO and the company does not intend to hire a replacement for the COO role, Twitter stated. Shares of the social network operator advanced $1.25, or 3.52%, to $36.79 after the management shake-up. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was home furnishings retailer Restoration Hardware (RH), which advanced $9.05, or 12.68%, to $80.40 after the company's first quarter quarter results topped analysts' consensus estimates and it raised its fiscal 2014 outlook. Also higher was Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), which rose 14c, or 0.42%, to $33.39 after Goldman Sachs changed its view on its negative thesis on the stock and upgraded the shares to Neutral from Sell. In after-hours trading, however, HP was up nearly another 1% after chipmaker Intel (INTC) raised its Q2 revenue view, citing stronger than expected demand for business PCs. Shares of Intel, meanwhile, were up more than 4% in after-hours trade following the increased outlook. Among the noteworthy losers was yoga wear maker lululemon (LULU), which fell $7.05, or 15.91%, to $37.25 and was downgraded at both William Blair and Stifel after the company reported Q1 results, lowered its FY14 guidance and announced the retirement of CFO John Currie. Also lower amid the recent spike in oil prices were a number of airline stocks, including Delta Air Lines (DAL), which slid $2.21, or 5.43%, to $38.50, and Southwest (LUV), which dropped $1.22, or 4.53%, to $25.72. INDEXES: The Dow was down 109.69, or 0.65%, to 16,734.19, the Nasdaq was down 34.30, or 0.79%, to 4,297.63, and the S&P 500 was down 13.78, or 0.71%, to 1,930.11.

13:44 EDTINTCBefore the Move: Watch Intel into tomorrow's analyst day
Chipmaker Intel's (INTC) analyst day tomorrow could yield information on numerous company operations, but Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis cautions investors that the probability for positive surprises appears low given recent spending outlays. BACKGROUND: Intel, one of the largest semiconductor makers in the world, is scheduled to hold an analyst day on Thursday, November 19. Beyond providing forecasts for its various business segments and remarks on the larger computer market, Intel is expected to provide further clarity on several recent stories, including its memory joint venture with Micron (MU), plans to invest heavily in a Chinese production facility and progression towards chips on the 10 nanometer scale. STRONG OUTLOOK, MILD MEETING: Intel's pending acquisition of Altera (ALTR) and its plans to invest as much as $5.5B in a computer memory facility in Dalian, China leave little room for positive surprises at tomorrow's event in regards to 2016 margins, capital expenditures, or shareholder returns, Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis said in a recent research note. That said, the analyst views Intel's Chinese facility expansion as part of a "brilliant investment strategy that positions Intel as a partner to China" and "keeps the market open" to its microprocessors, perhaps Intel's more famed business segment. Though the two initiatives are certain to push up near-term debt load, Lipacis takes the longer-term view, reminding investors that Intel has shown consistently strong free cash flow over the past decade, leading him to forecast another $13B in 2016. The year may also bring "a number" of other positives for the company, including more data center wins after the Altera tie-up, potentially renewed sales on a cyclical uptick in PC gaming, and even the possibility of an iPhone chip contract, though Lipacis said none of those points look set to be discussed tomorrow. The analyst kept a Buy rating and $38 price target on the shares while reiterating that Thursday's Intel event may have little in store for those expecting eye-grabbing surprises. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Intel have advanced roughly 0.9% to $32.92 Wednesday afternoon. "Before the Move" is The Fly's recurring series of exclusive stories that identify potentially market moving events, along with analyst predictions, ahead of the news.
