13:01 EDTJPM, WFC, NQ, ZNGA, HRB, BOFI, VJET, ZIGO, AMEOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower again at midday, with the Dow being weighed on by a disappointing earnings report from banking giant JPMorgan (JPM). The reports from JPMorgan and peer Wells Fargo (WFC) certainly seemed to have more of an impact on market sentiment than the better than expected University of Michigan consumer confidence reading. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Producer Price Index jumped 0.5% in March, versus expectations for it to be up 0.1%. The University of Michigan consumer sentiment reading jumped to 82.6 in the preliminary April look, which was better than forecast and its highest reading since July. COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan and Wells Fargo kicked off earnings season for the major banks, with their stocks moving in opposite directions to mirror their earnings results. Dow member JPMorgan slipped more than 3% after its earnings per share and revenue significantly trailed consensus estimates, while Wells shares gained about 1.5% after the bank's profits beat the consensus forecast. Both noted, however, that their capital levels continued to strengthen during the quarter and both gave optimistic views on their ability to continue to reduce expenses. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was BofI Holding (BOFI), which rose 11% near midday after the company last night announced a deal to acquire H&R Block's (HRB) bank assets. H&R Block shares were down over 2% near noon. Also higher was mobile game maker Zynga (ZNGA), whose shares gained almost 3% after the company announced a new CFO and the stock was upgraded to Equal Weight by analysts at Morgan Stanley. Another gainer, Zygo (ZIGO), jumped 31% after the company agreed to be acquired by Ametek (AME) for $19.25 per share in cash in a deal that represents an aggregate enterprise value of $280M for Zygo. Shares of Ametek also rose 1.5% following the deal announcement. Among the noteworthy losers was 3D-printer maker Voxeljet (VJET), which fell 16% after its 3-million-share secondary offering of common stock priced at $15.00. Also lower was NQ Mobile (NQ), a recent target of noted short-seller Carson Block, which dropped over 13% after its profit missed expectations and the company disclosed that it found accounting errors in its recent reports. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 81.88, or 0.51%, to 16,088.34, the Nasdaq was down 15.30, or 0.38%, to 4,038.80, and the S&P 500 was down 6.89, or 0.38%, to 1,826.19.
