13:33 EDTYNDX, QIWIQIWI slides as Russian anti-terorism law may bring new payment rules
Shares of QIWI (QIWI), a provider of payment services in Russia, are sharply lower after reports that the country is considering new regulations on cross-border payments. Russian internet company Yandex (YNDX), which operates the Russian online payment system Yandex Money, also fell after the news. WHAT'S NEW: Under a new anti-terrorism law Russia may cap domestic payments using anonymous electronic wallets and ban cross-border payments using them, according to Russian periodical Ria Novosti. This new law would apply not only to Russian sites, but also to those based abroad that operate within the country. Last year, Yandex Money issued a report which said that at least 2.1M people in Russia's larger cities used its services at least twice a year. Transferring money abroad using systems like QIWI will no longer be an option, while domestic usage will be limited to $450 per month, which is much less than the current $1,200 cap. PRICE ACTION: During afternoon trading, shares of QIWI are down about 20% to $43.31. Shares of Yandex fell nearly 1% to $43.46. Reference Link

16:26 EDTQIWIOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory following another tumble in the price of oil and Russian central bank intervention on the ruble. The continued decline in crude and the sudden rate hike in Russia led to an early sell-off, though the market soon pared its losses and the Dow eventually built a 200 point gain before noon. The swing of 300 points for the Dow was indicative of the day’s volatility. The market moved across the flat line again and in the end the sellers regained control and pushed the market to another loss. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts fell 1.6% to a 1.028M rate in November, which was worse than the expected 3.1% increase. Building permits dropped 5.2% to a 1.035M rate in the month, which was also worse than the consensus forecast for a 2.5% drop. Markit's flash PMI for the U.S. dropped to 53.7 in December from 54.8 in November, which is an 11 month low and worse than the 55.2 reading that was forecast. In China, HSBC and Markit's preliminary manufacturing PMI fell to 49.5 in December from a final 50.0 reading in November. In Europe, Markit's composite PMI for the euro zone rose to 51.7, which was up from November's final reading of 51.1 and just above analyst forecasts for a reading of 51.5. Additionally, Russia's central bank raised its key interest rate to 17% from 10.5% in an effort to limit substantially increased ruble depreciation risks and inflation risks. COMPANY NEWS: Spain's Repsol (REPYY) announced plans to buy Talisman Energy (TLM) for $8 per share in cash, which was at the high end of the range reported recently by Financial Times. Talisman shares trading in New York surged $2.46, or 48.05%, to $7.58 following the deal announcement, while Repsol slipped 18c, or 0.93%, to $19.26. MAJOR MOVERS: The top nine gainers on the S&P 500 were all oil and gas exploration or services companies. After those came CVS Health (CVS), which gained $2.44, or 2.72%, to $92.31 after the company announced in conjunction with its analyst day meeting that it added $10B to its share repurchase plan, boosted its dividend 27%, affirmed its outlook for this fiscal year and pointed to growing earnings in its next fiscal year. Among the noteworthy losers was heavy truck maker Navistar (NAV), which fell $5.95, or 16.98%, to $29.10 after reporting losses for its just completed quarter. Also lower were shares of Russian companies listed in the U.S., including QIWI (QIWI), which dropped $2.81, or 13.06%, to $18.70 and Mobile TeleSystems (MBT), which slid 75c, or 10.84%, to $6.17. INDEXES: The Dow fell 111.97, or 0.65%, to 17,068.87, the Nasdaq dropped 57.32, or 1.24%, to 4,547.83, and the S&P 500 declined 16.89, or 0.85%, to 1,972.74.
