16:33 EDTRALY, ECYT, WPX, SYMC, GMCR, GEOS, ANN, NKEOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower in a session that saw the averages open higher before the Nasdaq quickly reversed lower, with the benchmark S&P 500 and blue-chip Dow joining the tech index in the red late in the session. Volume on each of the major indexes was heavy, with index and stock futures, as well as index and stock options, all set to expire at today's close. Despite today's sell off, each of the averages finished the week with gains larger than 1%. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no notable economic reports were released. COMPANY NEWS: Dow-member Nike (NKE) was the blue-chip index's worst performer, losing $4.06, or 5.12%, to $75.21 after reporting third quarter profit and sales that beat analyst expectations but saying that the devaluation of some developing market currencies will be a "significant drag" on its reported revenue, gross margin and profit in fiscal 2015. The athletic footwear and apparel maker said that excluding forex adjustments, its revenue growth in 2015 should exceed its target range for high-single digit growth... Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) was scheduled to join the S&P 500 as of today's market close, replacing WPX Energy (WPX), and shares of the coffee maker closed the session down $3.40, or 2.95%, to $112. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Endocyte (ECYT), up $13.53, or 92.42%, to $28.17 after the company announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use of the European Medicines Agency issued "positive opinions" for conditional authorizations for its Vynfinit, Folcepri and Neocepri treatments. The company also announced a Phase 2b lung cancer trial met its primary endpoint, and following the news no fewer than three analyst firms increased their price target on the stock. Also higher was Ann Inc (ANN), up $4.82, or 12.95%, to $42.05 after Golden Gate Capital last night disclosed a 9.5% stake in the retailer and said it plans to leverages its retail and equity experience to create value for shareholders. Among the noteworthy losers was Symantec (SYMC), down $2.70, or 12.94%, to $18.20 after the company last night announced it terminated its CEO, Steve Bennett. No fewer than five analysts downgraded shares of the company following the news. Also lower was Geospace Technologies (GEOS), down $11.16, or 15.07%, to $62.89 after the company disclosed in a regulatory that a $29.4M order the company previously said would occur in its third quarter may be postponed following capital concerns at its customer. INDEXES: The Dow was down 28.35, or 0.17%, to 16,302.70, the S&P 500 was down 5.49, or 0.29%, to 1,866.52, and the Nasdaq was down 42.50, or 0.98%, to 4,276.79.
