16:27 EDTWLP, C, YELP, JOSB, DY, ARQLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher as the Fed's Beige Book and reports on second quarter economic growth and July pending home sales were all encouraging. Stock futures were generally quiet in premarket trading but rose a bit after the GDP revision, leading to a slightly higher open for the broader market. The averages moved in a very narrow range for much of the day before solidifying in positive territory after the Beige Book said that moderate expansion in the economy had continued since the last report. A late day fade dented the gains, but the averages hung on to post modest increases... ECONOMIC EVENTS: The Federal Reserve's Beige Book, its anecdotal account of the state of the economy, stated that economic activity in nine of the Fed's 12 districts rebounded. The U.S.'s second estimate of Q2 GDP growth was revised up to 1.7% from 1.5%, as expected, and Q2 personal consumption growth was revised upward to 1.7% from a prior 1.5% estimate as well. Pending home sales grew 2.4% on a month-over-month basis in July, which was ahead of forecasts... COMPANY NEWS: WellPoint (WLP) rose $4.41, or 7.68%, to $61.80 as investors responded favorably to the decision of its CEO, Angela Braly, to submit to shareholder pressure and resign... Citigroup (C) agreed to pay $590M to settle a shareholder lawsuit that claimed it misled investors about the bank's growing problems before the financial crisis... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Yelp (YELP), up $4.11, or 22.51%, to $22.37, with the move attributed to a short squeeze after an IPO lockup period expired, and JoS. A Bank (JOSB), up $5.81, or 13.96%, to $47.44, after its earnings and revenues beat expectations. Noteworthy losers included Dycom (DY), down $3.60, or 19.07%, to $15.28, and ArQule (ARQL), down $1.24, or 18.51%, to $5.46, following their earnings reports... INDICES: The Dow gained 4.49, or 0.03%, to 13,107.48; the Nasdaq rose 4.05, or 0.13%, to 3,081.19; and the S&P 500 advanced 1.19, or 0.08%, to 1,410.49.
