16:42 EDTTREX, PDCE, INSM, KORS, ESIOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street remained near the flat line until about 1 pm ET and then they began to drift higher. The buyers emerged during the afternoon and pushed the averages up ahead of the next round of corporate earnings reports due out after the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was reported. On the international front, Portugal's central bank announced a bailout of the nation's largest listed lender, Banco Espirito Santo. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of luxury accessories maker Michael Kors (KORS) fell $4.82, or 5.89%, to $77.01 after the company reported stronger than expected results for the first quarter of its fiscal 2015, but said that its gross margins had dropped during the quarter compared to the same period of last year. The company also estimated that its gross margin would drop in fiscal 2015. Analysts were divided on the company's outlook following the results, with Sterne Agee contending that "red flags abound" for the company while Bank of America Merrill Lynch saying that the "impressive momentum" of Michael Kors should continue and that today's pullback in the stock has created a buying opportunity. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was decking product maker Trex (TREX), which advanced $4.33, or 15.1%, to $33.00 after its better than expected earnings. Also higher was PDC Energy (PDCE), which rose $6.63, or 12.34%, to $60.34 after Colorado governor John Hickenlooper struck a deal that will eliminate all ballot initiatives, proposed for November, that had sought to restrict hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," in the state. Among the noteworthy losers was ITT Educational (ESI), which plunged $6.59, or 46.05%, to $7.72 after the company disclosed that its sale leaseback agreement with College Portfolio Buyer had been terminated. Also lower were shares of Insmed (INSM), with Piper Jaffray attributing today's $4.59, or 26.61%, pullback in its shares to $12.66 to the company not immediately filing for U.S. approval of Arikayce in cystic fibrosis and nontuberculous mycobacteria in concert with its European filing for the drug. INDEXES: The Dow rose 75.91, or 0.46%, to 16,569.28, the Nasdaq advanced 31.25, or 0.72%, to 4,383.89, and the S&P 500 gained 13.84, or 0.72%, to 1,938.99.

12:28 EDTESIFor-profit education names fall after FTC sues DeVry over marketing
DeVry Education (DV) and its peers in the for-profit education space are falling after the Federal Trade Commission filed suit against the company, alleging that DeVry's advertisements "deceived" consumers about the likelihood of finding jobs in their chosen fields of study and earning more than graduates from other universities. In a related action, the Department of Education is also moving against the company for those same practices, requiring it to stop the allegedly deceptive advertisements and take steps to ensure it can verify the truthfulness of its post-graduation employment outcomes, including hiring an independent auditor and informing students of its "unsubstantiated" statistics. The Department's action comes after its investigation of DeVry found the postgraduation employment claims "have not been substantiated to the extent required by law." PRICE ACTION: Shares of DeVry crashed 13.5% to $20.54 following the news, while Apollo Education (APOL), ITT Educational (ESI) and Strayer Education (STRA) each slid over 2% and Bridgepoint (BPI) fell 1%.
