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.

10:33 EDTJPMWebster Financial to acquire HSA business from JPMorgan
Webster Financial (WBS), the holding company for Webster Bank, N.A., said that it had signed a definitive agreement to acquire the health savings account, or HSA, business from JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., a subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase (JPM). Under the agreement, approximately 700,000 accounts, including an estimated $1.3B in deposits and $175M in investments, will migrate from JPMorgan Chase Bank to HSA Bank, a division of Webster Bank, over a transitional period. In the near term, Webster will use approximately 60% of the deposits to pay down short-term borrowings with the remaining funds invested in securities. Transaction consideration will be all cash; the purchase price was not disclosed. Webster expects the transaction to be modestly accretive to earnings per share and return on equity in the first year following closing. The transaction is expected to improve Webster's loan-to-deposit ratio to approximately 80% from 87% pro forma at June 30. The company estimates the transaction will have tangible book value dilution of approximately 3%. JPMorgan Chase has advised Webster that the transaction is not expected to have a material impact on JPMorgan Chase's earnings.

14:34 EDTALRZwanziger says Alere will not provide due diliegence
Ron Zwanziger disclosed that he sent an email to Gregg Powers, Alere's Chairman of the Board, seeking a meeting to discuss the proposed due diligence period. Zwanziger also noted that representatives from a private equity firm and an investment bank would accompany him to the meeting to discuss equity and debt financing related to the proposed transaction and to assure Mr. Powers that the proposal is and will be bona fide. Zwanziger said Powers responded by letter, declining the proposed meeting. He also indicated that Alere would not be providing any due diligence opportunity to the former officers. Powers also stated in the Alere Letter that the board would appropriately consider any proposal it believes to be bona fide and would maximize shareholder value.

05:31 EDTJPMVisa to undertake assessment of stake in Monitise
Visa (V) and Monitise entered into an alliance agreement in 2009. At the same time, Visa began investing in Monitise. Given the maturation of Monitise as a company, Visa is considering its options with respect to the investment and has engaged J.P. Morgan Securities (JPM) to assist. Visa will also be lessening its dependence on external mobile development resources. In 2009, in conjunction with its commercial partnership, Visa invested in Monitise as a 14.4% owner of the company in order to provide capital support to a leader in the evolution of the mobile payments sector. Over time, Visa’s holdings have been reduced to its current 5.5% stake in the company. This reduction in ownership and associated influence is consistent with Visa’s investment practice to seed emerging players and, over time, taper that influence as the partner company grows. Under their agreement, Monitise will provide Visa with mobile platform development services through 2016. As both Visa and the payments industry evolve at a rapid pace, Visa intends to continue increasing its investment in its own in-house capabilities and, as a result, reducing its use of external resources.
