16:30 EDTNFLX, AMZN, FB, GRUB, SNX, APC, SYMC, HALOOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower, with the Nasdaq leading the way lower, losing more than 2.5% as a number of momentum stocks in the technology and biotech space continued to see losses as they have over much of the last month of trade. After a quiet open to the session following a slightly better-than-expected U.S. jobs report, selling took hold and did not relent, as the averages finished the session just off their worst levels. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Department of Labor's monthly jobs report showed nonfarm payrolls increased 192K in March, versus the consensus forecast for 200K job additions. Notably, February's job gain was revised up to 197K from the prior estimate of 175K and January war revised up to 144K from 129K. The unemployment rate in March was steady at 6.7%. COMPANY NEWS: A number of tech names that had been leaders during 2013's rally continued to face selling pressure, as they have for much of the last month or so of trade. Streaming internet video service Netflix (NFLX), which gained more than 300% in 2013, fell $17.38, or 4.90%, to $337.31. Other tech leaders, including Amazon (AMZN), down $10.62, or 3.18%, to $323.00, and Facebook (FB), down $2.74, or 4.61%, to $56.75 also lost ground, with both stock's now down more than 20% from their best levels reached earlier this year... Four new stocks made their debuts on the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq this morning, highlighted by the initial public offering of food delivery service GrubHub (GRUB), which gained $8.00, or 30.77%, to close at $34.00 in its first day of trade. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was SYNNEX (SNX), up $14.52, or 23.26%, to $76.94 after the company's first quarter results and second quarter outlook topped analysts' consensus estimates. Also higher was Anadarko Petroleum (APC), up $2.03, or 2.05%, to $101.05 to add to yesterday's gain after finalizing a settlement related to its case with Tronox (TROX). A number of analyst firms were positive on shares following the settlement, with no fewer than four firms raising their price targets while analysts at JPMorgan upgraded the stock to Overweight from Underweight. Also higher was Symantec (SYMC), up 22c, or 1.10%, to $20.25 after a report from Reuters said the company has been seeking advice from investment banks as it prepares to defend itself against potential involvement from activist investors. Also lower was Halozyme (HALO), down $3.16, or 27.26%, to $8.43 after an independent committee recommended it temporarily halt patient enrollment and dosing of a Phase 2 trial evaluating a drug in patients with pancreatic cancer. INDEXES: The Dow was down 159.84, or 0.96%, to 16,412.71; the S&P 500 was down 23.68, or 1.25%, to 1,865.09; the Nasdaq was down 110.02, or 2.60%, to 4,127.73.
