16:15 EDTLNKD, JPM, CHK, MWW, ALR, ARNAOn 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.
