Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday, pushing the S&P 500 off the five-year high it reached Friday. The averages opened lower and remained there for the entire morning as a wave of banking news was reported but no market moving economic data was released... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S. no market moving economic data was reported... COMPANY NEWS: Bank of America (BAC) announced it will repurchase $6.75B worth of residential mortgage loans it sold to Fannie Mae and will pay $3.6B to settle claims related to certain residential mortgage loans. Bank of America also agreed to sell the servicing rights on about 2M residential mortgages with unpaid principal balances of approximately $306B to Nationstar Mortgage Holdings (NSM) and Walter Investment (WAC)... Separately from BofA's settlement with Fannie Mae, the Federal Reserve and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency reached an agreement under which ten mortgage servicing companies will pay more than $8.5B in cash payments and other assistance to mortgage borrowers to settle claims of deficient practices in loan servicing and foreclosure processing. The regulators listed Bank of America, Citibank (C), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), MetLife Bank (MET), PNC (PNC), SunTrust (STI), U.S. Bank (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC) among those participating but did not spell out the level of compensation to be paid by each... In other banking news, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision made it easier for banks to meet the new "liquidity coverage ratio" rule and delayed its full implementation until 2019... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Epocrates (EPOC), up over 21% after agreeing to be acquired by athenahealth (ATHN) for $11.75 per share in cash, and SolarCity (SCTY), which rose more than 10% after a number of research firms began covering the stock with Buy ratings. Also higher were shares of Peregrine Pharmaceuticals (PPHM), which advanced 72% after the company updated on its internal review of one of clinical trials and Roth Capital upgraded the stock to a Buy. Among the noteworthy losers was ITT Educational (ESI), which fell nearly 17% after reporting Friday night that it has entered into a settlement agreement and release with Sallie Mae and Credit Suisse lowered its price target on the stock in a note to investors this morning. Also lower were shares of Achillion (ACHN), down over 9% after reporting interim results on a trial of its treatment for a type of hepatitis C virus infection... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 79.00, or 0.59%, to 13,356.21; the Nasdaq was down 10.87, or 0.35%, to 3,090.79; and the S&P 500 was down 8.64, or 0.59%, to 1,457.83.

06:02 EDTSCTYSolarCity adds financing option in move to expand
SolarCity introduced MyPower today, a solar financing option that combines the low upfront cost and immediate utility savings of a power purchase agreement with the benefits of ownership. SolarCity customers pay for their MyPower solar loan similar to the way they pay for a solar PPAóbased on the energy the system produces from the sunóbut they retain ownership of the solar panels. MyPower's unique structure creates America's most affordable solar loanówith a lower cost than PPAs in many locations. MyPower can allow customers to pay as much as 40% less for solar power than utility power, and unlike other loans, MyPower allows customers to prepay their entire balance or prepay a portion of their solar loan to lower their monthly payments at any time, with no fees or penalties. Starting today, SolarCity will offer MyPower to customers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey, and ultimately plans to expand the product beyond its existing service territory.
