16:40 EDTCSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after Fed Chair Janet Yellen struck a dovish tone in comments to the Economic Club of New York, which was in step with the minutes of the last FOMC meeting released last week. The Fed also released its latest Beige Book report, which indicated that economic activity increased in most regions after the severe winter weather that gripped much of the country to start the year had let up. Corporate earnings season continues to pick up steam, with Dow members IBM (IBM) and American Express (AXP), as well as Google (GOOG), reporting after the market close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts in March were up 2.8% from the prior month to a rate of 946K, versus expectations for an increase of 7%. Building permits were down 2.4% to a 990K rate, versus expectations for a decline of 0.4%. Industrial production rose 0.7% in March, which was ahead of the 0.5% forecast. The Fed's Beige Book report indicated that economic activity rebounded and strengthened in most regions over the last six week. In China, data showed its economy grew 7.4% in the first quarter from a year earlier, providing relief after recent signs that growth in the world's second largest economy has been slowing. COMPANY NEWS: Bank of America (BAC) fell 26c, or 1.59%, to $16.13 after the bank reported a first quarter loss of 5c per share, largely due to $6B in legal charges. Excluding the impact of this litigation expense, which was related to a previously announced settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and other legacy mortgage-related matters, the banking major reported earnings that appeared to beat estimates... Yahoo (YHOO) gained $2.14, or 6.26%, to $36.35 after its quarterly report, with investors reacting most positively to the 66% year-over-year revenue growth reported by Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba, in which Yahoo holds a 24% stake. Yahoo's quarterly profit and revenue also beat expectations and the company's CEO Marissa Mayer said during its earnings webcast that the search giant's core business has moved from declining growth to stable to modest growth. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was CBS Outdoor (CBSO), which jumped $1.94, or 6.69%, to $30.96 after the IRS approved a plan for the company, which was just last week spun-off from its parent CBS (CBS), to convert into a real estate investment trust, or REIT. Other companies seeking REIT status, including Equinix (EQIX), Iron Mountain (IRM) and Lamar Advertising (LAMR), also rose following CBS' announcement. Also higher was drugmaker Zogenix (ZGNX), up 48c, or 20.51%, to $2.82 after confirming that a judge prevented a ban on sales of the company's Zohydro pain medication in Massachusetts. Among the noteworthy losers were U.S.-listed shares of Credit Suisse (CS), which fell 54c, or 1.7%, to $31.22 after the Swiss bank reported net income and revenue that fell when compared to the prior year. Also lower were Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM) and Yamana Gold (AUY) after agreeing to jointly acquire Osisko Mining. Angico shares fell $2.61, or 8.56%, to $27.88, while Yamana was down 36c, or 4.3%, to $8.02. INDEXES: The Dow was up 162.29, or 1.0%, to 16,424.85, the Nasdaq was up 52.06, or 1.29%, to 4,086.23, and the S&P 500 was up 19.33, or 1.05%, to 1,862.31.
