16:22 EDTCELG, SBUX, LMCA, ULTA, GMCR, ARO, SIRIOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower following another session dominated by headlines concerning the geopolitical situation. Stocks were lower early in the session following the lower than expected University of Michigan consumer confidence reading. The market moved in a narrow range and crossed back and forth across the flat-line several times. Investors remain on edge following several recent poor economic reports out of China and frequent remainders of the upcoming elections in the Ukraine on Sunday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., producer prices fell 0.1% overall in February, versus an expected increase of 0.2%. The core reading, which excludes food and energy, fell 0.2%, versus an expected increase of 0.1%. The Reuters/University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Survey for March unexpectedly dropped to a four-month low of 79.9. The preliminary reading for the month was expected by analysts to have come in at 81.8, which would have been a slight bump from the prior 81.6 figure. In Europe, citizens of the Crimea region of the Ukraine are likely to vote to secede this weekend, even as Ukraine, the U.S and the European Union maintain that the vote is illegal. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he was told that Vladimir Putin is not prepared to make any decision regarding Ukraine until after the country's referendum. COMPANY NEWS: Liberty Media (LMCA) shares gained $9.11, or 7.22%, to $135.25 after the company announced last night that it plans to reclassify its common stock into two tracking stocks, one called Liberty Media Group and the other called Liberty Broadband Group. Liberty President & CEO Greg Maffei called the move "another step in Liberty’s process of offering investors greater choice, transparency and focus." Liberty said in conjunction with the plan that it would drop plans to buy the rest of Sirius XM (SIRI), in which it currently holds a 53% stake in. Sirius XM had previously suspended its stock repurchase program in connection with Liberty Media's proposal and it announced today that it now intends to resume the repurchase plan. Shares of Sirius advanced 7c, or 2.08%, to $3.44 following the news. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was beauty retailer Ulta Salon (ULTA), which advanced $5.75, or 6.42%, to $95.26 after the company’s fourth quarter results beat estimates. Also higher were shares of single-serve coffee machine maker Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR), which rose $7.09, or 6.68%, to $113.25 after the company agreed to new terms in its deal with coffee giant Starbucks (SBUX). Among the noteworthy losers was teen retailer Aeropostale (ARO), which dropped $1.47, or 20.14%, to $5.83 after its fourth quarter results and first quarter outlook missed analysts' consensus expectations and the company entered a financing deal with private equity firm Sycamore Partners. Also lower were shares of drug maker Celgene (CELG), which dropped $6.59, or 4.22%, to $149.41 after the U.K.'s healthcare guidance body issued new draft guidance on the use of the company's Revlimid drug. INDEXES: The Dow fell 43.22, or 0.27%, to 16,065.67, the Nasdaq dropped 15.02, or 0.35%, to 4,245.40, and the S&P 500 declined 5.21, or 0.28%, to 1,841.13.

Starbucks and Arizona State University announced that Starbucks College Achievement Plan, first introduced in June 2014, will now offer 100% tuition coverage for every eligible U.S. Starbucks partner. Full tuition coverage was previously available to juniors and seniors, but now all eligible part-time or full-time partners can apply for and complete all four years of a bachelor’s degree through ASU’s online degree program. In addition to partners receiving full tuition coverage, the company is offering faster tuition reimbursement - now at the end of each semester. The company will invest up to $250M or more to help at least 25,000 partners graduate by 2025. Over the next three years, Starbucks has also committed to hiring 10,000 “Opportunity Youth,” a population of nearly 6M disconnected youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who are not working or in school. Partners will have no commitment to remain at the company past graduation.
