07:08 EDTPG, KMB, JCP, MCD, FL, SAFMRetailers concerned about consumer buying as payroll tax hits, WSJ reports
American workers are opening their first paychecks of the year and finding an unpleasant surprise: The government's take has gone up. That consumers remain tentative threatens to put a drag on economic growth. The effect for companies is that this will likely cement a frugal attitude that led consumers to cut back on eating out and shift to less-expensive store brands, reports the Wall Street Journal.Reference Link

16:38 EDTJCPOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory despite some soft economic data points, including a weaker than expected report on manufacturing in the New York area and a lower than expected consumer confidence reading. The market short circuited following reports of a skirmish in the Ukraine where a Russian convoy was supposedly fired upon when it crossed the border. The averages quickly dropped and were only able to partially recover, as investors moved to the sidelines to avoid additional geopolitical risk over the weekend. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The NY Fed's Empire manufacturing survey had a reading of 14.69, versus expectations for a 20.0 reading. The Producer Price Index increased 0.1% overall, matching expectations. The core reading was up 0.2%, which was also in-line with the consensus forecast. Industrial production increased 0.4% in July, beating the consensus 0.2% growth forecast. That nudged up capacity utilization to 79.2%, versus 79.1% previously. The first University of Michigan consumer confidence reading for August fell 2.6 points to 79.2, versus expectations for it to have edged up to 82.0. Treasury international capital data showed foreigners dumped $153.5B in total U.S. assets in July after buying a revised $33.1B in June. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Monster Beverage (MNST) surged $21.84, or 30.48%, to $93.49 after Coca-Cola (KO) bought a stake in the energy drink maker and the companies announced a long-term strategic partnership and asset swap. Coca-Cola will pay $2.15B for a 16.7% stake in Monster, the companies announced last night. Under the terms of their agreement, Coca-Cola will add two directors to Monster's board. Coke will transfer ownership of its worldwide energy business including brands like NOS, Full Throttle, Burn, Mother, Play and Power Play, and Relentless to Monster, in trade for which Monster will transfer its non-energy business to Coke. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Achillion Pharmaceuticals (ACHN), which rose 81c, or 9.6%, to $9.25 after the company announced interim results from an ongoing Phase 2 proxy study of a potential chronic hepatitis C virus regimen that analysts at Piper Jaffray called "impressive." Also higher was Paylocity (PCTY), which advanced $2.17, or 9.79%, to $24.34 after reporting better than expected fourth quarter revenue and guiding to higher than expected sales in its first quarter. Among the noteworthy losers was retailer J.C. Penney (JCP), which fell 24c, or 2.46%, to $9.50 despite posting a narrower than expected loss for the second quarter. Also lower were shares of another department store owner, Dillard's (DDS), which dropped $9.49, or 8.21%, to $106.11 after reporting quarterly results that missed expectations. INDEXES: The Dow dropped 50.67, or 0.3%, to 16,662.91, the Nasdaq gained 11.92, or 0.27%, to 4,464.93, and the S&P 500 slipped 0.12, or 0.01%, to 1,955.06.
