16:16 EDTCSTR, GOOG, TLB, LNG, JPM, PWAV, AAPL, WFCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower, as a report that indicated slowing growth in China weighed on sentiment. Stock futures were lower in pre-market trading, leading to a lower open for the market. The selling gained momentum following the slightly disappointing University of Michigan consumer confidence reading. The averages pared their losses by midday but weakness in shares of Google (GOOG) and Apple (AAPL) kept the Nasdaq lagging the other averages. As the news flow began to slow the market drifted in a narrow range, until a late sell-off pushed the averages to new lows into the closing bell... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the headline consumer price index rose 0.3% in March, while the core reading which removes food and energy was up 0.2%, with both readings matching expectations. The consumer sentiment index fell to 75.7, versus expectations of 76.2. In China, the nation's gross domestic product grew at its slowest pace in three years, rising only 8.1%, when published forecasts were near 8.4% and "whisper numbers" for the growth rate were even higher. In Europe, the cost of insuring against a Spanish default jumped to an all-time record as investors fear the nation may become the fourth, and by far the largest, euro-region member to need a bailout... COMPANY NEWS: Wells Fargo (WFC) and JP Morgan (JPM), the nation's two largest home lenders, kicked off bank earnings season by reporting better than expected profits, with strong mortgage results helping revenue at both. However, both banks slid amid a broad decline in financial stocks, with Wells Fargo falling $1.18, or 3.47%, to $32.84 and JP Morgan losing $1.63, or 3.64%, to $43.21... Google's earnings beat consensus estimates but more attention was paid to the company's announcement of a novel new share structure. Google's creation of a new class of nonvoting shares, to be distributed to existing stockholders effectively producing a 2-for-1 stock split, will let the company issue new shares without diluting the foundersí voting power, which raised concern among corporate-governance watchdogs... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Cheniere Energy (LNG), up $1.12, or 7.13%, to $16.82, ahead of the government's decision on the company's request to build a Louisiana plant to export liquefied natural gas, and Coinstar (CSTR), up $4.47, or 7.29%, to $65.78, after the company pre-announced higher than expected quarterly results. Noteworthy losers included Powerwave Technologies (PWAV), down 84c, or 39.07%, to $1.31, following its forecast of Q1 revenue well below the consensus estimate, and Talbots (TLB), down 46c, or 14.70%, to $2.67, after its Q4 results and Q1 guidance both disappointed... INDICES: The Dow lost 136.99, or 1.05%, to 12,849.59; the Nasdaq fell 44.22, or 1.45%, to 3,011.33; and the S&P 500 dropped 17.31, or 1.25%, to 1,370.26.
