10:51 EDTHUMHealth insurers slide after UnitedHealth results, cautious comments
Shares of a number of health insurers are falling after the largest company in the sector, UnitedHealth (UNH), reported slightly higher than expected first quarter profit but lower than expected revenue. WHAT'S NEW: UnitedHealth's first quarter earnings per share came in at $1.10, versus the consensus outlook of $1.09. The insurer reported revenue of $31.71B, compared with the consensus outlook of $31.99B. Taxes levied by the Affordable Care Act and weak funding of Medicare Advantage by the government weighed on UnitedHealth's earnings, the company stated. Also pushing down the company's earnings was "a very expensive," new Hepatitis C therapy, UnitedHealth stated on its earnings conference call. Hepatitis C treatments cost UnitedHealth hundreds of millions of dollars in the first quarter, the company stated, though it also noted that demand for the treatments should drop going forward as initial pent-up demand for them starts to decline. The company indicated that it was looking to be reimbursed by states for the money it is spending on hepatitis vaccines for Medicaid patients. Meanwhile, UnitedHealth reiterated its fiscal 2014 EPS guidance of $5.40-$5.60 and its fiscal 2014 revenue guidance of $128B-$129B. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, UnitedHealth sank 3.7% to $75.31. Other health insurers also declined, with WellPoint (WLP) dropping 4% to $91.89, Aetna (AET) falling 3.3% to $67.54, Humana (HUM) declining 2.25% to $106.35, and Health Net (HNT) sliding 1% to $31.74.

07:28 EDTICESEC officials weighing curbs on trading fees, WSJ says
SEC officials, including some commissioners, are considering a trial program to curb "maker-taker" fee plans that are a major source of revenue for exchanges and some high-frequency trading firms, according to The Wall Street Journal. Fund managers, including BlackRock (BLK), are concerned about the negative effects of maker-taker, the report added. IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) CEO Jeffrey Sprecher, along with representatives from T. Rowe Price (TROW) and from RBC Capital (RY), recently held a series of private meetings with SEC Chairman Mary Jo White to push for its elimination, according to the report, citing people familiar with the matter. Like IntercontinentalExchange, which owns the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq (NDAQ) is a publicly-traded exchange operator. Reference Link

13:43 EDTICEFidelity to pitch new lost cost trading venue to large asset managers, WSJ says
Fidelity is working on a new trading venue, dubbed "Sakura," that it hopes will be a collaboration among big mutual-fund firms to reduce costs and streamline trading and will be an improvement over other "dark pools," reported The Wall Street Journal, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The report said Fidelity is in the initial planning stages and has just started pitching the idea to other large asset managers. Publicly traded fund managers include BlackRock (BLK), Franklin Resources (BEN) and T. Rowe Price (TROW), while Investment Technology Group (ITG) currently operates dark pools that facilitate block trading among large institutions. Exchange operators Nasdaq (NDAQ) and Intercontinentalexchange's (ICE) NYSE have previously testified to legislators that too much trading occurs in dark pools, hurting investors. Reference Link
