17:02 EDTJPM, MCD, ITMN, MWW, PANL, PRSSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower for the second consecutive day, as concern over the fiscal cliff and uncertainty in Europe continues to loom over investors. Stocks opened the day slightly higher, but quickly moved into negative territory where they stayed for the rest of the trading session. Among the notable companies reporting earnings after the bell today are Walt Disney (DIS) and Nordstrom (JWN)... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, weekly jobless claims fell by 8,000 to 355,000, which was lower than expected, though the data was impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The U.S. trade deficit narrowed in September to $41.5B, as exports climbed 3.1 % and imports rose 1.5% as well. In Europe, the European Central Bank held its main interest rate at 0.75% and reiterated its willingness to make bond purchases to aid Spain, though the nation continues to resist asking for a bailout. The Greek Parliament passed austerity measures, but reports indicated that euro zone finance ministers may delay its next tranche of aid until they get a full report on the country’s compliance with the terms of its bailout... COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan (JPM) announced that it has been given Federal Reserve approval to buyback up to $3B in stock in the first quarter of 2013, and the bank also disclosed that it had reached an 'agreement in principle' to settle certain probes from the Securities and Exchange Commission. Shares of JPMorgan fell slightly, declining 8c, or 0.2%, to $40.40... Fellow Dow member McDonald’s (MCD) said comparable store sales suffered their first monthly decline in nine years, falling 1.8% in October.

MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was InterMune (ITMN), up $1.36, or 16.67%, to $9.52 after the company's Q3 earnings beat consensus estimates and the stock was upgraded to Buy at Canaccord. Also higher was Monster Worldwide (MWW), up 58c, or 10.16%, to $6.29 following a stronger than expected earnings report and announcement of restructuring plans. Among the noteworthy losers was Universal Display (PANL), down $5.08, or 18.03%, to $23.10 after the company lowered its FY12 revenue view, and the stock received downgrades at Wedbush and Avondale, though defenses of the stock came out of JMP Securities and Cowen. Also lower were shares of CafePress (PRSS), down $1.33, or 21.28%, to $4.92 after the company reported disappointing earnings and guidance.

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.

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.
