16:24 EDTAPO, SB, COOL, CCIX, GEOY, WOLF, VIP, FDS, MDS, CLNE, JPMOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher, with the Dow closing well over the 13K level and the Nasdaq taking and holding the 3K mark. Stock futures were higher in pre-market trading leading to a higher open for the broader market. The averages waffled for the first 30 minutes of trading but broke out of their range following a slightly better than expected wholesale inventories report. The market spurted to fresh recovery highs and along the way the Dow eclipsed 13,000 and the Nasdaq moved past 3,000. The Fed’s FOMC met and kept interest rates unchanged and said monetary policy would remain accommodative through at least late 2014. The major indices did not move much after the FOMC comments, which were largely in-line with expectations, but a dividend increase and expanded stock buyback announcement from JP Morgan (JPM) provided another shot in the arm, powering the market to close at session highs... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, February retail sales increased 1.1% overall, in line with expectations. The core reading, which excludes autos and gas, rose 0.6%, versus the expected increase of 0.5%. Business inventories rose 0.7% in January, versus the expected increase of 0.5%. The Fed kept its benchmark rate target unchanged, as expected... MARKET NEWS: JP Morgan approved a new $15B stock buyback program and increased its dividend to 30c from 25c. After JP Morgan's "pre-announcment" of sorts, the Fed said it would report on the results of its bank stress tests at 4:30 pm ET today... Among companies reporting earnings, advancers included FactSet (FDS) and GeoEye (GEOY), while Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE), VimpelCom (VIP), and Coleman Cable (CCIX) were among the decliners... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Midas (MDS), up $2.45, or 27.25%, to $11.44, on news it will be acquired by TBC Corporation for $11.50 per share, and Great Wolf (WOLF), up $1.13, or 26.97%, to $5.32, which closed above the $5 per share "take private" offer it received from Apollo Global Management (APO). Noteworthy losers included Majesco (COOL), down 41c, or 13.80%, to $2.56, following its disappointing earnings and guidance, and Safe Bulkers (SB), down 65c, or 9.09%, to $6.50, after pricing its 5M share secondary offering at $6.50... INDICES: The Dow added 217.97, or 1.68%, to 13,177.68; the Nasdaq rose 56.22, or 1.88%, to 3,039.88; and the S&P 500 gained 24.87, or 1.81%, to 1,395.96.

15:12 EDTJPMU.S. Supreme Court decision gives homeowners leeway to rescind mortgage loans
In an unanimous ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Jesinoski vs. Countrywide Home Loans that homeowners are allowed to rescind home mortgages within the three years allotted under the Truth in Lending Act of 1968 by providing written notice to his/her lender. The court ruled that the borrowers were not required to file suit against the lender, which the respondents, Countrywide, claimed. The notice of rescission was sufficient to clear the homeowners of any obligation to the loan, provided they do it within the allotted time. Countrywide Home Loans is a subsidiary of Bank of America (BAC). Other publicly traded companies in the banking space include Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link
