16:27 EDTMTW, DD, AMED, MNKD, NKE, DG, FINLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after a late day rise allowed all of the major averages to end the week on a high note. The averages began the session in negative territory but soon turned mixed. The Nasdaq was able to hold its head above water for most of the session while the Dow struggled for most of the day under the weight of DuPont (DD) shares, which were down more than 3% after the company lowered its guidance. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the final University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for June rose to 82.5, which beat the consensus expectation for a reading of 81.9. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of athletic apparel and footwear giant Nike (NKE) and sports shoe retailer Finish Line (FINL) climbed after both companies reported better than expected quarterly sales and profits. Dow member Nike rose 82c, or 1.07%, to $77.68, while Finish Line advanced 41c, or 1.41%, to $29.56... Another member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, DuPont, moved in the opposite direction, falling $2.26, or 3.34%, to $65.44 after the industrial conglomerate cut its earnings outlook for its second quarter and its current fiscal year. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Amedisys (AMED), which rose $4.01, or 29.81%, to $17.46 and was upgraded at CRT Capital after the company gave Q2 guidance. Also higher was Manitowoc (MTW), which gained $3.22, or 10.84%, to $32.93 and was upgraded to Hold at Jefferies after activist Relational Investors took an 8.5% stake in the company and urged for a spin-off of its food business. Among the noteworthy losers was discount retailer Dollar General (DG), which fell $4.49, or 7.28%, to $57.19 after Chief Executive Officer Rick Dreiling announced plans to retire. Also lower were shares of MannKind (MNKD), which dropped 58c, or 5.48%, to $10.00 after the FDA approved its Afrezza inhalation powder to treat diabetes but required the drug to have a Boxed Warning and required the company to conduct several post-marketing studies on the drug. INDEXES: The Dow was up 5.71, or 0.03%, to 16,851.84, the Nasdaq was up 18.88, or 0.43%, to 4,397.93, and the S&P 500 was up 3.74, or 0.19%, to 1,960.96.
