17:10 EDTTGTMarket finishes week up slightly as earnings offset by political events
Stocks finished the week fractionally higher than where they started as strong corporate earnings reports and better than expected economic data was weighed against concerns about geopolitical issues and negative M&A news. MACRO NEWS: A few ongoing geopolitical conflicts worried investors and weighed on shares. Russia unveiled sanctions against Western countries, banning the import of a wide range of food items from the U.S, the EU and a few allied countries in response to sanctions recently enacted against it from G7 nations... President Obama authorized the bombing of rebels in Iraq and Hamas and Israel failed to reach a permanent truce... An ISM services index, the U.S. trade deficit for June, and weekly jobless claims were all better than expected. Meanwhile, the increase in unit labor costs last quarter came in below the consensus outlook, perhaps easing fears that the Fed will need to raise interest rates sooner than expected. COMPANY NEWS: On the M&A front, two huge potential deals fell through as 21st Century Fox (FOX, FOXA) withdrew its offer to acquire Time Warner (TWX) and Sprint (S) reportedly decided to end its pursuit of a merger with peer T-Mobile (TMUS)... President Obama indicated that his administration would take unilateral steps in an effort to prevent companies from carrying out tax inversion acquisitions. Among the deals or possible transactions that involve inversion are Medtronic's (MDT) acquisition of Covidien (COV), Valeant's (VRX) proposed takeover of Allergan (AGN) and Mylan's (MYL) acquisition of Abbott's (ABT) developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals business. Meanwhile, Walgreen's (WAG) stock tumbled after the U.S. company said it would not structure its takeover of European drugstore chain Alliance Boots as a tax inversion deal... 21st Century Fox, 3D printer maker Stratasys (SSYS), chip maker NVIDIA (NVDA), brewer Molson Coors (TAP), and luxury accessories maker Coach (COH) all rose following their earnings reports. Conversely, Target (TGT), luxury accessories maker Michael Kors (KORS) and Internet coupon provider Groupon (GRPN) fell following their results or guidance... Gannett (GCI) struck a deal to acquire the remaining 73% interest in Classified Ventures, whose primary asset is the online car shopping website Cars.com, for $1.8B from the other partners in the venture, which include McClatchy (MNI), Tribune Media (TRBAA), Graham Holdings (GHC) and A. H. Belo (AHC). Gannett also announced plans to spin-off its Publishing business, which includes USA Today, through a tax-free distribution to shareholders... McDonald's (MCD) stock was little changed after the company reported that its comparable store sales fell 2.5% in July, which was significantly worse than expected. Food quality issues weighed on the fast food company's sales in Asia and as a result of the China supplier issue, the company warned its previously issued global comparable sales forecast for 2014 is now at risk. INDEXES: The Dow finished the week up 0.35% to 16,553.93, the S&P 500 rose 0.32% to 1,931.59, and the Nasdaq gained 0.41% to 4,370.90.

12:29 EDTWLPHealth insurers fall after two downgrades from Goldman
Shares of a number of health insurers are falling after Goldman Sachs downgraded its rating on one stock in the sector and removed another from its Conviction List. WHAT'S NEW: Goldman analyst Matthew Borsch downgraded his rating on Aetna (AET) to Neutral from Buy and removed UnitedHealth (UNH) from the firm's Conviction List, as he believes that other stocks in the healthcare sector are more attractive. Utilization of healthcare services by individuals who don't have the Affordable Care Act is likely to show signs of increasing by 2015, posing a "manageable" challenge to health insurers, Borsch wrote. However, the increase in the utilization of these services is likely to be "relatively gradual" compared with similar trends in the past, the analyst contended. Borsch based his forecast on healthcare spending trends during previous economic recoveries. He reduced his 2015 earnings estimate for Aetna to $7 from $7.10 and for United Health to $5.95 from $6. He reduced his 2015 EPS estimates for other companies in the sector, as his earnings outlook for WellPoint (WLP) declined to $9.20 from $9.35, while his estimate for Cigna (CI) for next year dropped to $7.90 from $8. The analyst kept Neutral ratings on both WellPoint and Cigna. Meanwhile, Borsch cut his price target on Aetna to $88 from $91 and on UnitedHealth to $91 from $96. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Aetna fell 3% to $76, UnitedHealth slumped 2.5% to $79.50, WellPoint declined 2.5% to $108, and Cigna retreated 2.5% to $89.
