16:28 EDTSAVEOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in the red on the heels of a sharp sell-off in China and amid continued concern over tumbling oil prices. The domestic economic calendar offered little in the way of a catalyst and the market moved in a narrow range throughout the morning. However, the averages began to pare their losses once the European markets closed. By mid-afternoon the averages had turned mixed with the Nasdaq higher, the S&P flat, and the Dow the laggard, which is the way the trading day closed. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the National Federation of Independent Business' optimism index rose to 98.1 from a prior reading of 96.1. The JOLTS report showed job openings increased 149K to 4.83M in October, which was above the expectation for 4.795M openings. Wholesale sales increased 0.2% in October and inventories grew 0.4%, both of which were better than expected. In Asia, China's Shanghai composite index plunged 5.4%, making for the stock market's sharpest selloff in years, after the country’s securities clearing house raised the threshold for the type of collateral used for short-term loans and policymakers warned about potentially slower economic growth. In Europe, Greek stocks and bonds also tumbled after a move to bring forward presidential elections, which could potentially derail Greece’s bailout and austerity efforts. COMPANY NEWS: Verizon (VZ) was among the Dow's worst performers, sinking $1.98, or 4.05%, to $46.92 after the company warned that Q4 impacts of its promotional offers, together with the strong customer volumes this quarter, will put short-term pressure on its earnings per share. After last night's commentary from the company, Robert W. Baird downgraded Verizon shares to Neutral from Outperform and lowered its price target on the stock to $50 from $54... Merck (MRK) also weighed on the Dow, as the drugmaker fell $1.87, or 3.02%, to $60.01 after a Delaware court denied Cubist's (CBST) bid to stop Hospira (HSP) from selling a generic version of Cubicin in 2016. Merck announced just yesterday morning that it had agreed to buy Cubist in a transaction with a total value of approximately $9.5B. The news is a "tough start" to Merck's takeover and makes the $9.5B buyout price look $2B to $3B too high, according to analysts at Leerink. Shares of Cubist also fell $xxx, or xxx%, to $xxx following the court ruling. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was bluebird bio (BLUE), which surged $35.39, or 72.39%, to $84.28 after the company announced data from eight subjects treated with its LentiGlobin drug product and Piper Jaffray more than doubled its price target for the shares to $112 from $52. Among the noteworthy losers was Conn's (CONN), which plunged $14.26, or 40.64%, to $20.83 after unexpectedly reporting losses for its third fiscal quarter, withdrawing its FY15 guidance and announcing the departure of its CFO. Also lower was Spirit Airlines (SAVE), which slid $10.70, or 12.67%, to $73.77 after the company said last night that since late October there has been compression in the fare structure for close-in bookings, believed to be driven by the industry’s willingness to trade lower fuel prices for lower fares. Also, this morning, Raymond James downgraded Spirit Airlines to Market Perform from Outperform, citing valuation, European deflation headwinds, and earnings that are still being revised down. INDEXES: The Dow fell 51.28, or 0.29%, to 17,801.20, the Nasdaq rose 25.77, or 0.54%, to 4,766.46, and the S&P 500 slipped 0.49, or 0.02%, to 2,059.82.
