16:47 EDTNFLX, MSFT, JNPR, AAPL, HLF, IBMMarkets fall sharply on emerging market concerns
Stocks on Wall Street were lower, as the U.S. indexes had their worst week since 2012 as tepid economic data out of China and sharp declines in some emerging market currencies rattled investors. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., reports on initial jobless claims, existing home sales and the leading economic indicators all came in roughly in-line with expectations. Markit's "flash" Purchasing Managers' Index dropped to 53.7 in the preliminary January reading. In China, the preliminary HSBC manufacturing PMI slipped below 50, indicating contraction in the sector, for the first time in six months. In Europe, a composite Eurozone PMI jumped more than a point from the prior month's reading, with both the underlying services PMI and manufacturing PMI beating forecasts. Several emerging market currencies hit multi-year lows, including the Argentinian peso, the Turkish lira, the South African rand and the Russian ruble. COMPANY NEWS: Technology stalwart's Microsoft (MSFT) and IBM (IBM) both reported quarterly earnings this week, with their reports sending shares in different directions. On Tuesday after the market close, IBM reported bottom-line earnings that beat expectations but revenues that fell short of estimates for the fourth straight quarter. During Wednesday's trading session, IBM fell 3.28% and closed the week down more than 5%. In contrast, Microsoft reported earnings last night that beat on the top and bottom lines, and reported strong sales of both its Surface tablet and Xbox gaming consoles, sending shares higher by a bit more than 2%... A number of Carl Icahn-related stocks were in the news this week, including Netflix (NFLX), one of Icahn's most profitable positions, which reported earnings that beat expectations, sending shares of the internet streaming video provider sharply higher to close the week up about 17%. In an interview with CNBC on Wednesday, Icahn was again critical of Apple's (AAPL) use of cash, and on Thursday Icahn disclosed on his Twitter account that he purchased additional shares of the iPhone maker, bringing his stake to $3.6B. Icahn also sent an open letter to Apple shareholders, calling for the company to repurchase $50B worth of stock in its fiscal 2014. Herbalife (HLF) shares fell more than 16% this week after Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey asked the SEC and FTC to investigate the multi-level marketer as a possible pyramid scheme. Icahn is long shares of Herbalife against Bill Ackman's public short of the company... Juniper Networks (JNPR) last night reported earnings and revenue that beat expectations and said it will announce a new operational plan shortly, an announcement that follows a presentation from activist investor Elliott Management earlier this month that urged the company to return capital to shareholders. Noted investor JANA Partners also backed Elliott's plan for efforts to unlock shareholder value at Juniper, and shares of Juniper finished the week up more than 6%. INDEXES: The Dow lost about 3.5% to close at 15,879.11; the S&P 500 lost 2.6% to close at 1,790.29; the Nasdaq lost 1.6% to close at 4,128.17.
