Stocks ended the week lower amid worries about the Fed tightening sooner than expected and continued geopolitical uncertainty. MACRO NEWS: In a statement released following their latest meeting, the Federal Open Market Committee said that "the likelihood of inflation running persistently below 2% has diminished somewhat." Meanwhile, the employment cost index jumped 0.7% in the second quarter, it was reported on Thursday. Wages and salaries rose 0.6% in Q2, according to the report. Following the release of the index and the Fed's statement, investors worried that the central bank could start tightening monetary policy sooner than expected. The Commerce Department estimated that U.S. Gross Domestic Product grew at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.0% in the second quarter, easily beating expectations for a growth rate of 3.0%. Non-farm payrolls rose 209K in July, missing the 230K forecast. Other U.S. economic data was largely upbeat, as two consumer confidence indexes for July and weekly jobless claims were all better than expected... In overseas news, China's official purchasing managers' index reached its highest level in 27 months in July, beating expectations by a small amount. Argentina failed to head off its second default in the past 13 years, sending its stock and bond markets sharply lower and causing ripples throughout global debt and equity markets. The U.S. and EU leveled new, tougher sanctions against Russia, leading to concerns that Moscow's struggle with the West could intensify. Meanwhile, Israel continued to battle Hamas. COMPANY NEWS: Among the noteworthy companies that fell after reporting their results were shipping giant UPS (UPS), glass maker Corning (GLW), navigation device specialist Garmin (GRMN) and newly-listed action camera maker GoPro (GPRO). On the other other side of the coin, Twitter (TWTR), Expedia (EXPE), Procter & Gamble (PG), Allstate (ALL), and Amgen (AMGN) were among the companies whose stocks rose in the wake of their earnings reports... The M&A news flow continued to be strong, as Dollar Tree (DLTR) agreed to buy Family Dollar (FDO) and real estate website operator Trulia (TRLA) agreed to be acquired by its peer Zillow (Z) and casino equipment maker Bally Technologies (BYI) agreed to be acquired by Scientific Games (SGMS). Meanwhile, France's Iliad (ILIAF) confirmed that it had offered $15B in cash for a 56.6% stake in T-Mobile US (TMUS) for $33 per share for $83.30 per share, which negatively impacted the stock of Sprint (S), which has been widely viewed as on track to buy T-Mobile as the two seek to grow and better challenge the number one and two mobile carriers in the U.S., Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T)... Target Corporation (TGT) announced that its Board of Directors had named Brian Cornell as the company's next chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO, effective August 12. Cornell most recently served as the CEO of PepsiCo Americas Foods (PEP) where he oversaw Pepsi's global food business. Before joining PepsiCo in 2012, Cornell served as president and CEO of Sam's Club, a division of Wal-Mart (WMT). INDEXES: The Dow dropped 2.75% to 16,493.37, the S&P 500 fell 2.16% to 1,925.15, and the Nasdaq declined 2.69% to 4,352.64.
