17:12 EDTGRMN, AMGN, TWTR, GT, HSP, PWE, GNW, EWOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory following a better than expected GDP growth estimate for the second quarter, but were unable to hold their initial gains. The averages reversed early in the session and eventually crossed into negative territory, as investors chose to wait for the Fedís rate decision and to listen to the accompanying statements. The Fed kept rates the same, said inflation was tracking towards their goals, and continued to reduce their planned purchases of bonds, which was all generally in keeping with expectations. The market initially revived, but then settled back into the range it was in before the Fed's release and limped into the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: 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%. ADP reported private payrolls climbed 218K in July, which was a bit below the 238K forecast. The Federal Reserve wrapped up its two-day Federal Open Market Committee meeting and, as expected, decided to reduce its monthly asset purchases by $10B next month. The Fed will buy $10B of mortgage-backed securities in August, down from $15B in July, and will buy $15B of longer-term Treasury securities next month, down from $20B previously. The committee reaffirmed its view that highly accommodative monetary policies are still appropriate and maintained its 0% to 0.25% target range for the federal funds rate. Additionally, the leaders of the G-7 issued a joint statement that they "remain ready to further intensify the costs" to Russia if it does not change its course regarding Ukraine. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Twitter (TWTR) surged $7.71, or 19.98%, to $46.30 after the social network operator's second quarter results beat analysts' consensus estimates and it raised its fiscal year 2014 revenue and adjusted EBITDA forecasts. Following last night's report, Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded Twitter to Buy from Neutral, while the stock was also upgraded at FBN Securities, UBS and Cowen. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Edwards Lifesciences (EW), which gained $8.44, or 10.0%, to $92.88, Hospira (HSP), which rose $4.31, or 8.3%, to $56.21, and Amgen (AMGN), which advanced $6.70, or 5.43%, to $130.01. Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Genworth Financial (GNW), which fell $2.28, or 14.02%, to $13.98, Goodyear Tire (GT), which declined $2.14, or 7.76%, to $25.45, and Garmin (GRMN), which dropped $3.17, or 5.51%, to $54.41. Also lower was Penn West Petroleum (PWE), which fell $1.30, or 14.21%, to $7.85 after it announced that the Audit Committee of the company's Board of Directors is conducting a voluntary, internal review of certain of the company's accounting practices. INDEXES: The Dow dropped 31.75, or 0.19%, to 16,880.36, the Nasdaq gained 20.20, or 0.45%, to 4,462.90, and the S&P 500 added 0.12, or 0.01%, to 1,970.07.
