16:26 EDTPANW, RAD, HLF, MSFT, FIRE, BIOL, HPQ, FTNT, ACAD, INTCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after initial jobless claims fell. The averages rose fairly steadily in the early hours of the session, though the initial rally stalled and the averages were range bound for much of the second half of the trading day. The Nasdaq was the laggard among the averages, as it was weighed down by declines in tech bellwethers Microsoft (MSFT) and Intel (INTC)... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 42K from the prior week to 346K, versus an expectation for them to decline more modestly to 360K. Import prices declined 0.5% in March compared to the prior month, which was in-line with expectations, while export prices fell 0.4%, versus expectations for a 0.1% gain... COMPANY NEWS: Shares of a number of big-name tech companies were weaker after research firms IDC and Gartner both estimated that PC sales declined by double-digits in the first three months of the year. Microsoft, which was also downgraded by at least three firms, lost $1.35, or 4.44%, to $28.93, Intel slid 43c, or 1.95%, to $21.83 and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) fell $1.44, or 6.45%, to $20.88... Herbalife (HLF) shares gained $1.08, or 2.9%, to $38.28 after the SEC and Department of Justice filed complaints against ex-KPMG partner Scott London for allegedly helping a friend trade on non-public information in that stock. The DOJ's complaint made reference to conversations in which London acknowledged rumors of Herbalife going private and activist investor Bill Ackman's short position on shares... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following FDA actions were ACADIA Pharmaceuticals (ACAD), up $5.13, or 64.37%, to $13.10 after the FDA approved its filing of a New Drug Application for a Parkinson's drug candidate, and BIOLASE (BIOL), up 59c, or 13.26%, to $5.04 after the FDA cleared its EPIC 10S soft tissue diode laser for use a surgical instrument. Also higher was Rite Aid (RAD), up 33c, or 18.44%, to $2.12 after its earnings and guidance beat expectations. Among the noteworthy losers was Fortinet (FTNT), down $2.85, or 13.04%, to $19.00 after reporting weaker than expected first quarter results. Several of its Internet security peers also lost ground, including Sourcefire (FIRE), down 86c, or 1.58%, to $53.58, and Palo Alto (PANW) down 55c, or 1.01%, to $54.16... INDICES: The Dow was up 62.90, or 0.42%, to 14,865.14; the Nasdaq was up 2.91, or 0.09%, to 3,300.16; and the S&P 500 was up 5.64, or 0.36%, to 1,593.37.

08:02 EDTHLFHerbalife wins dismissal of class action 'pyramid scheme' lawsuit
On March 16, a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted Herbalife its motion to dismiss a class action complaint brought on behalf of shareholders who allege that the company and its executives violated federal securities laws by misrepresenting the "nature, scope and legality" of the company's business and operations. According to the plaintiffs, Herbalife and its executives, including CEO Michael Johnson, misrepresented Herbalife as a legitimate multi-level marketing company when it "is actually an illegal pyramid scheme." The court concluded that the suit's plaintiffs have not adequately pled loss causation, meaning that the court need not consider Herbalife’s alternative arguments, according to a court filing. Shares of Herbalife are up 3% in pre-market trading after the court dismissal was widely reported by Bloomberg last night.
