12:33 EDTRBSOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session relatively unchanged from yesterday’s close and continue to trade in a holding pattern as investors await the release of the minutes from the Federal Reserve's last FOMC meeting. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., EIA inventory data showed a 2.67M barrel fall in crude stocks, versus expectations for a 1.75M barrel decrease. The Federal Reserve is scheduled to release the minutes from its last rate setting meeting at 2 pm EDT. In Asia, Japan's GDP accelerated to a 2.4% growth pace in the first quarter, which was much better than expected. Japanese stock markets rallied on the news, sending the Nikkei 225 average to its best level in 15 years. COMPANY NEWS: Five of the world's largest banks - Citi (C), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Barclays (BCS), The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and UBS (UBS) - agreed to pay more than $5B and plead guilty to felony charges related to manipulating foreign currencies and interest rates. In conjunction with previously announced settlements with regulatory agencies in the United States and abroad, today’s resolutions bring the total fines and penalties paid by these five banks for their conduct in the foreign exchange spot market to nearly $9B, the Department of Justice stated... Target (TGT) shares advanced 1% after the retailer's first quarter earnings topped expectations and it raised the low-end of its fiscal year profit forecast. Brian Cornell, chairman and CEO of Target, said the company was pleased with its first quarter traffic and sales, particularly in its signature categories, which drove better-than-expected profitability through improved gross margin and continued expense management. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), which rallied 53% after the company announced that, following meetings with the FDA, it would submit its eteplirsen drug to the FDA for approval on a rolling basis, with various components of the application being submitted separately. Eteplirsen is a treatment for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or DMD. Also higher was Pep Boys (PBY), which gained 14% after The Wall Street Journal said private equity firm Golden Gate Capital and other potential suitors have expressed interest recently in buying the company. Among the noteworthy losers was Etsy (ETSY), which operates an online marketplace to buy and sell handmade items and vintage goods. The stock, which priced its IPO at $16 and opened for trading at $31 per share, dropped 22% to trade near $16.50 after the company issued its first financial report since coming public in April. Also lower were shares of several airline stocks, led by Southwest (LUV), which was down 8% near noon. In a regulatory filing last night, Southwest indicated it expects FY15 capacity growth to increase 7%-8% and to grow another 6%-7% in FY16. Buckingham downgraded Southwest to Neutral from Buy this morning, stating it has a more cautious revenue outlook for the company due to a worsening backdrop as competitors vow to compete aggressively.
