16:24 EDTLUV, LULU, HPQ, DAL, TWTR, RH, INTCOn 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.

12:29 EDTHPQ, INTCOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply higher at midday. A slight bounce in the euro overnight lifted overseas markets and U.S. stocks followed. Stock futures were higher during early pre-market trading, then strengthened further following the report of lower than expected retail sales figures for last month, which gave investors hope the Fed will wait longer to raise interest rates. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., headline retail sales fell 0.6% in February compared to the prior month, missing expectations for an increase of 0.3%. Retail sales excluding autos and gas declined 0.2%, versus the consensus estimate for a month-over-month increase of 0.3%. Initial jobless claims fell to 289K in the week ended March 7, versus the consensus forecast for 305K first-time claims. Business inventories were flat in January, versus the consensus forecast for them to grow 0.1%. In Asia, the Bank of Korea cut rates for the third time since last August, lowering its base rate to the historical low level of 1.75%. The decision came as a surprise, more in terms of the timing than the cut itself. Data from China showed the nationís M2 money supply growth picked up in February and its banksí new loan creation came in higher than expected as well. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Intel (INTC) fell 4% after the chip-making giant lowered its Q1 revenue outlook to $12.8B, plus or minus $300M, compared to the previous expectation of $13.7B, plus or minus $500M, citing weaker than expected demand for business desktop PCs and lower than expected inventory levels across the PC supply chain. Some other stocks levered to PCs also slid, with Microsoft (MSFT) declining 2% and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) sliding 3.5%. Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) shares were up fractionally, despite Intel's news and the fact that Barclays downgraded HP's stock this morning to Equal Weight, saying the weak euro could impact demand for PCs and printers... Citi (C), American Express (AXP) and Regions Financial (RF) were identified by analysts as being among the winners following the Fed's recently completed Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review, or CCAR. Analysts were more cautious on Bank of America (BAC), after the Fed identified deficiencies in the bank's capital planning process and ordered it to resubmit its plan, but allowed it to proceed with its capital plan in the meantime. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Amarin (AMRN), which jumped 27% after H.C. Wainwright upgraded the stock to Buy and raised its price target for shares to $10 from $2.50, citing management's commitment to completing the Vascepa outcomes' study REDUCE-IT. Also higher was Lumber Liquidators (LL), which rose 12.5% after the company held a call to update on the impact that 60 Minutes' recent critical report has had on its business. As part of the call, the flooring retailer reported on its recent sales trends, gave Q1 guidance and said it believes its cash flow from operations and existing liquidity sources will be sufficient to fund operations and anticipated capital expenditures for the "foreseeable future." Among the noteworthy losers was ACADIA (ACAD), which dropped 25% after announcing that it will delay submitting its NUPLAZID NDA for the treatment of Parkinsonís disease psychosis by two or three quarters and reporting that its CEO has retired. Also lower following their first earnings reports since coming public was Box, Inc. (BOX), which dropped 15%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 183.31, or 1.04%, to 17,818.70, the Nasdaq was up 26.68, or 0.55%, to 4,876.62, and the S&P 500 was up 18.56, or 0.91%, to 2,058.80.
