16:28 EDTGPROOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street spent most of today's quiet session see-sawing across the flat-line before dropping sharply in the final hour of trading and closing at their lows. The market opened in negative territory but soon made a move to the upside and appeared ready to break the recent market slide that has seen the S&P lose about 5% of its value. Before the averages gained significant steam, they reversed again and moved back into negative ground. The averages moved in a fairly narrow range for most of the afternoon, before accelerating to the downside with conviction in the final hour of trading.

COMPANY NEWS: The Wall Street Journal reported that CSX (CSX) was approached by a larger rival, Canadian Pacific (CP), about a possible merger. However, Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry wrote in a note to investors that a merger between the two would not be able to occur, due to high regulatory hurdles.

MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Alnylam (ALNY), which advanced $13.83, or 18.98%, to $86.68 after the company announced data from study of its treatment for patients with familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy and Piper Jaffray raised its price target on the stock to $133 from $101 citing the trial results. Among the noteworthy losers was AutoNation (AN), which fell $4.11, or 8.01%, to $47.21 after another company in the same sector, Lithia Motors (LAD), lowered its profit outlook for the third and fourth quarter and issued a lower than expected earnings forecast for fiscal 2015. Shares of Lithia, meanwhile, plunged $16.85, or 20.84%, to $64.01. Also lower were shares of GoPro (GPRO), which fell $8.38, or 9.85%, to $76.67 after a French journalist reported that the son of racing legend Michael Schumacher attributed the severity of his father's brain injury following a skiing accident on the GoPro camera mounted to his helmet.
