16:36 EDTRIO, CHSI, BRK.A, GNW, IVN, CHK, INTC, YPF, SXCI, BRK.B, IBMOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower, as earnings, particularly from the technology sector, disappointed. Stock futures were lower following yesterday’s big advance but closed the pre-market trading session just slightly below fair value. There were no economic numbers released before the open so investors focused on the earnings reports from companies including IBM (IBM) and Intel (INTC). The market opened at its session highs and quickly moved lower by roughly 0.5%, where it sat for several hours. The market selling then picked up in the afternoon, with the indices hitting session lows and struggling the rest of the day... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., crude oil inventories grew more than expected, while gasoline and distillates inventories shrank more than analyst forecast. In Europe, investors are anxious to see what emerges from Spain's auction of two-year notes and 10-year debt, which occurs tomorrow... NEWS: Reuters reported that the CEO of Chesapeake Energy (CHK) took out as much as $1.1B in unreported loans in the last three years, raising the possibility of conflicts of interest. Chesapeake’s stock price fell 5.54% throughout the day, ending at $18.06... Berkshire Hathaway’s (BRK.A;BRK.B) Warren Buffett was diagnosed with treatable stage one prostate cancer. Berkshire’s stock price fell slightly on the news, ending the day down 1.29% at $119,750... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Catalyst Health Solutions (CHSI), skyrocketing 34.14%, to $85.23, after it was acquired in a merger with SXC Health Solutions (SXCI), and Ivanhoe (IVN), up 15.99%, to $13.64, after CEO Robert Friedland resigned in a sweeping agreement with majority shareholder Rio Tinto (RIO) that involved funding for the massive Oyu Tolgoi copper-gold mining project in Mongolia. Noteworthy losers included YPF (YPF), which resumed trading after being halted and continued to plummet, down 32.72%, to $13.12, following the Argentine government’s nationalization of the company, and Genworth Financial (GNW), down 23.77%, to $5.87, after the company decided to postpone its IPO of its Australian unit backing home loans to early 2013 after “elevated” losses in the country this year...
