16:15 EDTJPM, ARNA, MWW, LNKD, ALR, CHKOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, as the Nasdaq was just barely able to cling to a marginal gain for the session. Stock futures pointed to a sharply lower open following JPMorgan’s (JPM) announcement of a $2B trading loss. The futures moved off their lows prior to the open but the broader market opened in negative territory. The averages found a level where they began to build following the highest consumer confidence reading since January 2008. Each of the major indices made it to positive territory and then went into a slow drift lower, with only the Nasdaq avoiding a return to the red... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, the producer price index report showed that prices fell 0.2% in April, versus expectations for no change. The core reading, which strips out food and energy, rose 0.2%, which was in line with expectations. The University of Michigan Consumer Confidence reading was 77.8, stronger than the expected 76 reading and its highest level since January 2008. Internationally, data from China and India may signal a further weakening of the global recovery, as China reported its industrial production rose 9.3% from a year ago in April while India's industrial output fell 3.5% in March from the prior year... COMPANY NEWS: The surprising announcement from JPMorgan of a $2B trading loss at one of its divisions triggered calls for tougher bank regulation and a sell off in its shares. CEO Jamie Dimon admitted to “egregious” failures in its risk management and said the losses could deepen this quarter and beyond, sending its stock down more than 9%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Arena Pharmaceuticals (ARNA), up $2.70, or 73.77%, to $6.36, after an FDA panel backed the approval of its weight loss drug, lorcaserin, and Monster Worldwide (MWW), up $1.50, or 19.13%, to $9.33, after Reuters said the company has attracted takeover interest from LinkedIn (LNKD) and Silver Lake, but CNNMoney said sources close to LinkedIn denied that report. Noteworthy losers included Alere (ALR), down $3.28, or 14.71%, to $19.02, following its disclosure of a subpoena from the Department of Health and Human Services and the potential of broader recalls of certain products after an FDA inspection, and Chesapeake Energy (CHK), down $2.37, or 13.80%, to $14.81, after the company said it would need to delay its 10-Q filing and then made the filing shortly afterward, in which it said it may have to delay some of its asset sales... INDICES: The Dow lost 34.44, or 0.27%, to 12,820.60; the Nasdaq rose 0.18, or 0.01%, to 2,933.82; and the S&P 500 dropped 4.60, or 0.34%, to 1,353.39.

After the FDA approved Orexigen's (OREX) Contrave as a treatment option for chronic weight management, Wells Fargo does not believe the label included any significant surprises.

The firm keeps an Outperform rating on Orexigen.

Apple (AAPL) has reached deals with American Express (AXP), JPMorgan (JPM), Citigroup (C), Capital One (COF), and Bank of America (BAC) to lower card transaction fees for its soon to be launched payments venture, said Bank Innovations, citing an earlier report from Tom Noyes and confirmation by its own sources. Apple has both convinced them to consider its transactions as “card present,” which carries a lower discount rate, and has also managed to bump down the actual “card present” rate by 15 to 25 basis points, according to people with knowledge of the matter, the report noted.

06:40 EDTJPMAgencies finalize liquidity rule for large banks
The Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency finalized a rule yesterday that they said would strengthen the liquidity positions of large financial institutions. The rule will for the first time create a standardized minimum liquidity requirement for large and internationally active banking organizations., according to the agencies. Each institution will be required to hold high quality, liquid assets, or HQLA, such as central bank reserves and government and corporate debt that can be converted easily and quickly into cash in an amount equal to or greater than its projected cash outflows minus its projected cash inflows during a 30-day stress period, the agencies explained. The ratio of the firm’s liquid assets to its projected net cash outflow is its “liquidity coverage ratio,” or LCR, they said. The LCR will apply to all banking organizations with $250B or more in total consolidated assets or $10B or more in on-balance sheet foreign exposure and to these banking organizations’ subsidiary depository institutions that have assets of $10B or more, the agencies reported. The rule also will apply a less stringent, modified LCR to bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies that do not meet these thresholds, but have $50B or more in total assets. Bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies with substantial insurance or commercial operations are not covered by the final rule. The final rule is largely identical to the proposed rule, with a few key adjustments in response to comments from the public, the agencies stated. Those adjustments include changes to the range of corporate debt and equity securities included in HQLA, a phasing-in of daily calculation requirements, a revised approach to address maturity mismatch during a 30-day period, and changes in the stress period, calculation frequency, and implementation timeline for the bank holding companies and savings and loan companies subject to the modified LCR. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).
