16:34 EDTSWY, BIG, PANW, JNPR, FL, FEYE, PRGSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed following a U.S. employment report for February that came in better than expected. Despite the economy adding more jobs that expected for February, the unemployment rate edged up to 6.7% from January's 6.6%. Despite continued unrest in Ukraine and mixed economic data, the averages closed the first week of the month with gains. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., 175K non-farm jobs were added last month, beating the expected increase of 150K jobs, while the unemployment rate edged up to 6.7% from last month’s 6.6% rate. The trade balance report for January showed a deficit of $39.1B, versus the expected $38.5B deficit. January consumer credit was reported to rise $13.7B, slightly below expectations for growth of $14B. COMPANY NEWS: Grocery store owner Safeway (SWY) agreed to be acquired by Albertsons, owned by private equity firm Cerberus, for a total value estimated at $40 per Safeway share. Safeway shareholders will receive $32.50 per share in cash, will have the right to receive pro-rata distributions of proceeds from primarily non-core assets with an estimated value of $3.65 per share, and Safeway's shares of Blackhawk (HAWK), with a current value of $3.95 per Safeway share, will still be distributed. The deal, which had been roundly telegraphed in recent media reports, received a mixed reaction, with analysts at Deutsche Bank saying it views the offer as too low. Shares of Safeway closed the session down 87c, or 2.2%, to $38.60... Closeout retailer Big Lots (BIG) gained $6.72, or 22.97%, to $35.97 after the company reported fourth results, said the wind-down of its Canadian operations is on schedule, and approved a $125M share repurchase program. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Palo Alto Networks (PANW), up $7.67, or 11.04%, to $77.12 after a judge declared a mistrial in the company's ongoing patent infringement lawsuit with Juniper Networks (JNPR). Shares of Juniper finished the session little changed. Also higher was Foot Locker (FL), up $3.76, or 8.80%, to $46.49 after the athletic shoe and apparel retailer reported earnings and sales that beat estimates and said its first quarter same-store sales are up low-double digits so far. Among the noteworthy losers was FireEye (FEYE), down $8.51, or 9.50%, to $81.04 after the internet security provider launched a 14M share offering of common stock, which was priced at $82.00 per share. Also lower was Progress Software (PRGS), down $2.87, or 11.31%, to $22.51 after cutting its first quarter profit and sales outlook last night. INDEXES: The Dow was up 30.83, or 0.19%, to 16,452.72, the S&P 500 was up 1.01, or 0.05%, to 1,878.04, the Nasdaq was down 15.90, or 0.37%, to 4,336.22.
