16:19 EDTJPM, CASY, RMBS, AAMRQ, JNJ, REGN, LCCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower following disappointing U.S. economic data. Stock futures were lower in premarket trading but tumbled following disappointing retail sales figures for the month of May. The market opened lower but soon found a level from where it started to build. The averages crossed into positive territory could not gain any upside momentum. The middle of the day was characterized by the market drifting back and forth across the baseline as it underwent a period of consolidation, in contrast to the previous two days, which were marked by big swings in the averages. In the last hour of trading the market fell sharply to wind up down for the day… ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales slipped 0.2%, which was in line with expectations, but if auto and gasoline data are excluded the "core" reading showed a decline of 0.1%, versus expectations of an increase of 0.4%. Producer prices in the month of May declined 1.0%, versus expectations of a decline of 0.6%, but if food and energy are removed the reading was up 0.2%, which was in line with forecasts. Business inventories grew 0.4% in April, versus expectations for an increase of 0.3%. In Europe, Italy’s national borrowing rate skyrocketed to its highest level since December, as investors became jittery about contagion from Spain’s request for external assistance… COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan's (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon testified in front of the Senate Banking Committee, saying that he expects the current quarter to be "solidly profitable" in spite of the "London Whale's" losses and that clawbacks of executive pay are likely following the bank's review of the incident. Dimon argued that complex institutions are necessary to meet the needs of business and that there are many advantages and only some negatives to big banks. Following his testimony JPMorgan’s shares rose 53c, or 1.57%, to $34.30... Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) shares rose $1.37, or 2.17%, to $64.45, after JPMorgan, Jefferies and Raymond James all upgraded the stock this morning. Last night, the pharmaceutical giant confirmed it has received U.S. regulatory clearance for its proposed acquisition of Synthes and announced a new accelerated share repurchase agreement... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Rambus (RMBS), up 44c, or 9.16%, to $5.30, after being initiated with a Buy rating and $10 price target at Sidoti, and U.S. Airways (LCC), up 54c, or 4.72%, to $11.97, after multiple sources indicated that the company plans to file paperwork with U.S. antitrust regulators as soon as next month for a proposed merger with AMR (AAMRQ). Noteworthy losers included Casey’s General Stores (CASY), down $7.73, or 12.90%, to $52.18, after missing on Q4 EPS, and Regeneron (REGN), down $15.97, or 12.49%, to $111.88, after competitor Ophthotech announced positive data from a clinical trial… INDICES: The Dow lost 77.42, or 0.62%, to 12,496.38; the Nasdaq fell 24.46, or 0.86%, to 2,818.61; and the S&P 500 dropped 9.30, or 0.70%, to 1,314.88.
