16:23 EDTJCP, LOGM, QLIK, AMZN, EXPE, PKIOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed after U.S. GDP accelerated during the first quarter, but less than had been expected. The averages opened the session mixed and traded in a narrow range, as each of the major equity indices logged gains of more than 1% for the week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., real GDP growth accelerated to 2.5% in the first quarter, from 0.4% in the prior quarter. However, analysts expected the growth rate to tick up to 3%. Personal consumption in Q1 was estimated to have risen 3.2%, beating expectations for 2.8% growth. The final University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for April rose to 76.4, versus expectations for a 73.5 reading. COMPANY NEWS: J.C. Penney (JCP) traded sharply higher after George Soros disclosed a 7.91% passive stake in the company last night, and a late afternoon report by CNBC's David Faber said that Goldman has commitments for a $1.75B term loan for the company. Shares of J.C. Penney rallied to their highs following Faber's report, closing just off those levels, up $1.76, or 11.55%, to $17.00. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were LogMeIn (LOGM), up $3.81, or 21.33%, to $21.67, and Qlik Technologies (QLIK), up $2.29, or 9.60%, to $26.14. Among the noteworthy losers was Amazon (AMZN), down $19.89, or 7.24%, to $254.81 after the company reported first quarter earnings that beat estimates, but gave a second quarter operating income view well below the prior year's results. Also lower after reporting earnings was Expedia (EXPE), down $6.41, or 9.87%, to $58.56, and PerkinElmer (PKI), down $4.12, or 11.95%, to $30.35. INDICES: The Dow was up 11.75, or 0.08%, to 14,712.55; the S&P 500 was down 2.92, or 0.18%, to 1,582.24; the Nasdaq was down 10.73, or 0.33%, to 3,279.26.
