16:23 EDTPRIMOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower, as the major averages receded from record levels. The Dow and S&P 500 closed yesterday at all-time highs, though the market was unable to build upon those records. Auto sales for February included disappointments for several companies, but that was quickly blamed on the poor weather during the month. With the economic calendar light, investors began looking forward to end of the week, when the highly anticipated monthly nonfarm payrolls are released. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was reported. COMPANY NEWS: Automakers reported on their sales in the U.S. during February, with several falling short of expectations. Ford (F) reported sales fell about 2% last month compared to the prior year, and its stock fell 40c, or 2.41%, to $16.17 afterward. Shares of Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), which reported a 6% increase in U.S. sales last month, declined 52c, or 3.28%, to $15.31. General Motors (GM) reported its February U.S. sales rose a bit over 4%, but that was below the nearly 6% increase that had been forecast by analysts, and shares gained 19c, or 0.51%, to $37.80... Target (TGT) shares gained 32c, or 0.41%, to $78.00 as the company held its investor day meeting. During the meeting, the retailer guided for its fiscal 2015 EPS to be $4.45-$4.65, versus consensus $4.50, and projected that its sales will grow 2%-3% during the fiscal year. Target also said it is targeting $2B in share repurchases this year and said it expects 5%-10% annual dividend growth. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Orexigen (OREX), which surged $1.85, or 31.95%, to $7.64 after the company disclosed that its weight loss drug, Contrave, demonstrated a statistically significant benefit over placebo for cardiovascular events when announcing a method of treatment patent was issued by the USPTO. Also higher was Springleaf Holdings (LEAF), which gained $12.19, or 32.05%, to $50.23 after agreeing to acquire OneMain Financial from Citigroup (C) for $4.25B. Among the noteworthy losers was Primoris Services (PRIM), which fell $3.87, or 18.35%, to $17.22 after reporting fourth quarter results that fell short of consensus expectations and were below last year’s fourth quarter. Also lower were shares of Micron (MU), which fell $1.58, or 5.06%, to $29.66 after Nomura downgraded the stock to Neutral from Buy. INDEXES: The Dow fell 85.26, or 0.47%, to 18,203.37, the Nasdaq lost 28.20, or 0.56%, to 4,979.90, and the S&P 500 declined 9.61, or 0.45%, to 2,107.78.
