16:24 EDTHPQ, INTC, TWTR, LULU, RH, DAL, LUVOn 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.

08:42 EDTHPQImperva new CEO has history of selling companies, says Sterne Agee
After Imperva (IMPV) appointed Anthony Bettencourt as its new CEO, Sterne Agee says that he has a history of selling companies. The firm believes that Imperva "would likely be an acquisition candidate" for a number of large tech companies such as Cisco (CSC), Juniper (JNPR), HP (HPQ), IBM (IBM), Check Point (CHKP), or F5 (FFIV). Sterne Agee believes that Imperva could be acquired for as much as $45 per share, and it keeps a Buy rating on the stock.
08:19 EDTLUV, DALFAA issues NOTAM restricting U.S. operations from flying over Syria
The Federal Aviation Administration issued a new Notice To Airmen restricting U.S. operators from flying in the Damascus Flight Information Region, which includes all of Syria. The FAA said, "This replaces the current NOTAM in place that strongly advises U.S. operators against flying in that airspace and requires them to contact the FAA before they operate in that airspace. Based on an updated assessment of the risk associated with such operations and the lack of any requests from operators wishing to fly in this airspace, we believe it prudent to prohibit U.S. operators from flying into, out of, and over Syria. The ongoing armed conflict and volatile security environment in Syria poses a serious potential threat to civil aviation. Armed extremist groups in Syria are known to be equipped with a variety of anti-aircraft weapons which have the capability to threaten civilian aircraft. Opposition groups have successfully shot down Syrian military aircraft using these anti-aircraft weapon systems during the course of the conflict. Opposition elements have previously warned civilian air carriers against providing service to Syria. Due to the presence of anti-aircraft weapons among the extremist groups and ongoing fighting in various locations throughout Syria, there is a continuing significant potential threat to civil aviation operating in Syrian airspace." Publicly traded companies in the airline industry include American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL).

Goldman downgraded the Semiconductors sector to Cautious given signs the cycle is turning based on expectations for a slowdown in semiconductor revenue growth, above trend semi unit shipments that should normalize, and stretching lead times. As a result, the analyst sees risk to Q4 estimates and sees further downside of 10%-25% for the SOX (SOX) and downgraded NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) to Sell from Neutral, InvenSense (INVN) to Neutral from Buy, and removed Maxim Integrated (MXIM) from the Conviction Buy List.
