16:28 EDTANOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street spent most of today's quiet session see-sawing across the flat-line before dropping sharply in the final hour of trading and closing at their lows. The market opened in negative territory but soon made a move to the upside and appeared ready to break the recent market slide that has seen the S&P lose about 5% of its value. Before the averages gained significant steam, they reversed again and moved back into negative ground. The averages moved in a fairly narrow range for most of the afternoon, before accelerating to the downside with conviction in the final hour of trading. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no economic data of note was reported and banks and bond markets were closed in observance of the Columbus Day holiday. In China, the nation's customs administration reported a trade surplus of about $31B for September. Exports in the month increased 15.3% from a year earlier, beating expectations and making for the biggest monthly increase since February 2013. Imports rose 7%, significantly outpacing the consensus projection for a 2% decline. COMPANY NEWS: The Wall Street Journal reported that CSX (CSX) was approached by a larger rival, Canadian Pacific (CP), about a possible merger. However, Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry wrote in a note to investors that a merger between the two would not be able to occur, due to high regulatory hurdles. Still, CSX rose $1.76, or 5.88%, to $31.70 following the Journal's report, while Canadian Pacific fell $4.40, or 2.32%, to $184.97... Shares of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAU) made their debut on the New York Stock Exchange and opened at $9 per share. The stock of the newly merged company closed trading down about 1% at $8.92... J.C. Penney (JCP) selected Marvin Ellison, who is currently executive vice president of stores at Home Depot (HD), to become its next CEO. The stock, which was also downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS this morning, spent much of the trading day in positive ground but moved lower late in the session and closed down 3c, or 0.42%, at $7.09. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Alnylam (ALNY), which advanced $13.83, or 18.98%, to $86.68 after the company announced data from study of its treatment for patients with familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy and Piper Jaffray raised its price target on the stock to $133 from $101 citing the trial results. Among the noteworthy losers was AutoNation (AN), which fell $4.11, or 8.01%, to $47.21 after another company in the same sector, Lithia Motors (LAD), lowered its profit outlook for the third and fourth quarter and issued a lower than expected earnings forecast for fiscal 2015. Shares of Lithia, meanwhile, plunged $16.85, or 20.84%, to $64.01. Also lower were shares of GoPro (GPRO), which fell $8.38, or 9.85%, to $76.67 after a French journalist reported that the son of racing legend Michael Schumacher attributed the severity of his father's brain injury following a skiing accident on the GoPro camera mounted to his helmet. INDEXES: The Dow fell 223.03, or 1.35%, to 16,321.07, the Nasdaq dropped 62.58, or 1.46%, to 4,213.66, and the S&P 500 declined 31.39, or 1.65%, to 1,874.74.
