16:32 EDTKATE, KORS, ICPT, DNDN, TRAKOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in negative territory and remained there for most of the session. The averages moved in a narrow range as the summer doldrums have set in, leaving little in the way of both volume and volatility. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NFIB's small business confidence index rose 0.7% to 95.7 in July, though that was below the expectation for a 96.0 reading. The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey showed job openings rose 94K to 4.671M in June. The Treasury posted a $94.6B budget deficit in July, which was not as steep as the $96.0B deficit that was projected. In Germany, the ZEW Center's economic sentiment index fell to 8.6 in August from 27.1 in July, compared to the consensus forecast for a decrease to 17. COMPANY NEWS: Accessory and clothing retailer Kate Spade (KATE) initially advanced in pre-market trading and was higher early in the session after the company reported second quarter adjusted earnings per share and sales that beat analysts' consensus forecast. However, the stock reversed and moved into negative territory during the company's associated conference call, during which it said it was "responsible to reevaluate the timeframe" to achieve its previously laid out targets for 2016, citing a longer than expected Kate Spade Saturday ramp-up, its revised 2014 margin rate outlook, and the company's limited visibility into 2016. For the day, the stock declined $9.87, or 25.39%, to $29.00. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Intercept Pharmaceuticals (ICPT), which rose $39.34, or 16.59%, to $276.52 after data from a trial of its liver disease drug OCA showed improved safety as well as a statistical benefit in reversing liver fibrosis. Also higher was DealerTrack (TRAK), which advanced $7.32, or 18.73%, to $46.40 after the company reported higher than expected second quarter earnings and raised its 2014 EPS outlook. Among the noteworthy losers was Dendreon (DNDN), which dropped 72c, or 33.96%, to $1.40 after reporting its Q2 revenue in a regulatory filing and disclosing the company sees a "significant risk" that it will not be able to repay or refinance its 2016 Notes. The company also acknowledged it is currently considering alternatives to the repayment of the 2016 Notes, some of which could result in leaving its current stockholders "with little or no financial ownership of Dendreon." Also lower were shares of Michael Kors (KORS), which fell $2.55, or 3.19%, to $77.44 in a potential reaction to the cautious margin guidance and commentary about the promotional retail environment from peer Kate Spade. INDEXES: The Dow fell 9.44, or 0.06%, to 16,560.54, the Nasdaq dropped 12.08, or 0.27%, to 4,389.25, and the S&P 500 slid 3.17, or 0.16%, to 1,933.75.
