16:44 EDTONVOOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory, but turned negative shortly after the open. The downside move failed to gain momentum and the averages remained near the flat line for most of the morning. The market moved to session highs by mid-afternoon and drifted higher into the close, as investors prepared for another round of earnings reports. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales rose 6.1% to a 5.19M rate in March, which was better than the expected 3.1% increase to a rate of 5.03M. Crude oil inventories built up by 5.32M barrels last week, which was more than the consensus forecast for a 3.2M barrel build. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei 225 average closed above 20,000 for the first time since April 2000. In Europe, Germany raised its economic growth forecast for 2015 to 1.8%, which was up from the 1.5% growth it said it expected in January. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Visa (V) rose $2.66, or 4.07%, to $68.01 and MasterCard (MA) advanced $3.43, or 3.91%, to $91.20 after China's State Council announced overnight that the country will regulate the market access for bankcard transaction clearing institutions, which analysts think might allow both companies to compete for the processing of domestic transactions in the country. Goldman Sachs said the overall rule is broader and simpler than expected, raising the possibility that Visa and MasterCard could operate more freely in China than the firm had previously expected... Shares of McDonald's (MCD) advanced $2.97, or 3.13%, to $97.84 after the company reported headline earnings that missed expectations but also said it is developing a turnaround plan to improve its performance and deliver "enduring profitable growth" that it plans to share in the first week of May. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Organovo (ONVO), which surged 67c, or 14.99%, to $5.14 after disclosing the company entered into a multi-year research collaboration agreement with Merck (MRK) that gives the drugmaker access to Organovo’s commercial exVive3D Human Liver Tissue service. Also higher was Vitamin Shoppe (VSI), which gained $5.54, or 14.22%, to $44.50 after asset management firm Carlson Capital revealed that it had obtained a 5.34% stake in the company and said that it had held talks with the retailer of natural treatments, supplements and vitamins. Among the noteworthy losers was Natural Resource Partners (NRP), which dropped $1.38, or 19.94%, to $5.54 after the company slashed its quarterly distribution by 75% to 9c per unit. Also lower were shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which fell $51.29, or 7.41%, to $641.23 after the company reported lower than expected first quarter comparable sales growth of 10.4%. INDEXES: The Dow rose 88.68, or 0.49%, to 18,038.27, the Nasdaq gained 21.07, or 0.42%, to 5,035.17, and the S&P 500 advanced 10.67, or 0.51%, to 2,107.96.

Several major retailer including Gap (GPS) and Target (TGT) are under investigation by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman over their staffing practices and whether they require workers to show up or stay home with little notice, The Wall Street Journal reports.
