16:26 EDTFOLDOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened lower but turned mixed early in the day and remained that way for most of the session. The Dow and S&P spent most of the day deep in negative territory, while the Nasdaq managed to stay just above the flat line. Investors had a chance to digest yesterday’s comments from the Fed and may have re-considered whether it latest policy stance was as dovish as originally believed. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 1K to 291K in the week ended March 14, which nearly matched the consensus 293K forecast. The current account deficit widened to $113.5B in Q4 from a revised deficit of $98.9B in Q3. The leading indicators for February rose 0.2% to 121.4, which was in-line with expectations. The Philadelphia Fed business outlook survey ticked down to a 5.0 one-year low from 5.2 in February, missing expectations for it to have risen a 7.0 reading. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) joined the Dow Jones Industrial Average after the close last night, replacing AT&T (T). Shares of Apple finished their first day in the blue chip index down 97c, or 0.76%, at $127.50, while AT&T fell 39c, or 1.16%, to $33.20... Coffee giant Starbucks (SBUX) rose $1.92, or 2%, to close at $97.76 after hitting a new all-time high of $99.20 earlier. The move follows the company's investor day meeting yesterday, where it unveiled plans for two pilots of delivery services, reported a partnership to expand the distribution of its ready-to-drink products in China, and announced that its board has declared the sixth two-for-one split of the company’s stock since its IPO in 1992. Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo were both unphased by the record highs and predicted the rally is not over for Starbucks in upbeat notes on the stock today. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Amicus Therapeutics (FOLD), which rose $3.11, or 33.26%, to $12.46 after reporting positive results in meetings with the EMA and FDA. Also higher was Wynn Resorts (WYNN), which gained $7.19, or 5.85%, to $130.11 after research firm Brean Capital last night initiated coverage of the stock and several casino peers with Buy ratings. Among the noteworthy losers was Transocean (RIG), which fell $1.09, or 7.15%, to $14.16 after saying that it intends to scrap four rigs and noting that with those it has announced plans to scrap a total of 16 floaters. Also lower after its earnings report was diversified apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell $3.50, or 16.36%, to $17.89. INDEXES: The Dow fell 117.16, or 0.65%, to 17,959.03, the Nasdaq gained 9.55, or 0.19%, to 4,992.38, and the S&P 500 declined 10.23, or 0.49%, to 2,089.27.

Amicus has met with regulatory authorities in Europe and the U.S. to discuss the approval pathways for the oral small molecule pharmacological chaperone migalastat HCl as a precision medicine monotherapy for Fabry patients who have amenable genetic mutations. The company held a meeting with the assigned European Rapporteurs to discuss the upcoming marketing authorization application for migalastat monotherapy. The Rapporteurs agreed that Amicus may submit its MAA for migalastat monotherapy under the Full Approval pathway in the EU and indicated support for Amicus to request Accelerated Assessment. Amicus is accelerating the timing of the MAA submission for full approval for migalastat monotherapy from the middle of 2015 to Q2. Amicus held a Type C meeting with the FDA and plans to submit an NDA for Accelerated Approval, for which the FDA is open to considering several potential surrogate endpoints evaluated in the clinical studies of migalastat.

12:38 EDTORCLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday ahead of the conclusion of the Federal Reserve's latest rate setting meeting and the central bank's accompanying announcements. The averages began the session in negative territory and have been range-bound throughout the morning. The Dow was down triple digits once again, making 8 consecutive days that the blue chip index has seen a triple digit move. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the DOE petroleum inventory reports showed a 9.6M barrel rise in crude stocks in the week of March 13, versus expectations for a 4.4M build. The day's big economic news is yet to come, with the Fed's FOMC meeting announcement due at 2:00 pm EDT and Fed Chair Yellen holding a press conference a half hour later. Elsewhere, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unexpectedly defeated his main challenger in Israel’s election and his Likud party appears set to capture more parliament seats. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of FedEx (FDX) slid 2.5% after the shipping giant reported earnings that beat estimates, but revenue that fell short of the consensus forecast, for its third fiscal quarter. FedEx noted that it expects to deliver "record" yearly earnings for the current fiscal year and next fiscal year as well... Oracle (ORCL) shares rose 2.5% after the company's third quarter profits matched expectations and it raised its quarterly dividend 25%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Vitesse Semiconductor (VTSS), which jumped 37% after the company agreed to be acquired for $5.28 per share in cash by Microsemi (MSCC). Also higher was Retrophin (RTRX), which rose 28% after the company said it will exercise its right to purchase from Asklepion Pharmaceuticals all worldwide rights, titles, and ownership of Cholbam after the FDA approved the drug for the treatment of pediatric and adult patients with bile acid synthesis disorders due to single enzyme defects and for patients with peroxisomal disorders. Among the noteworthy losers was Willbros Group (WG), which dropped 55% and was downgraded to Underperform at DA Davidson after announcing its earnings report will be delayed and the company is in potential non-compliance with debt covenants. Also lower following their earnings reports were Nektar Therapeutics (NKTR), which fell 15% after the company's Phase III BEACON metastatic breast cancer study missed its primary endpoint. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 105.02, or 0.59%, to 17,744.06, the Nasdaq was down 12.45, or 0.25%, to 4,924.99, and the S&P 500 was down 7.69, or 0.37%, to 2,066.59.
