16:18 EDTWWDOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory, extending their gains from yesterday. The economic calendar was relatively quiet and the volume was light as investors moved to the sidelines ahead of the start of the first quarter earnings season, which kicks off tomorrow after the close with Alcoa's (AA) report. A late day slide saw the major averages give up their gains, leaving the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 a bit below where they had started the day. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the JOLTs report showed job openings rose 168K to 5.13M in February, topping the consensus forecast for about 5M opening. Consumer credit climbed $15.5B in February, versus the expectation for consumers to have added $12.5B in new credit. In Europe, Markit's composite PMI for the eurozone came in at 54.0, which was down slightly from the flash reading of 54.1 but up from 53.3 in February and matched the prior peak seen in April of last year. Elsewhere globally, the central banks of Australia and India left their respective key interest rates unchanged, as expected. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of FedEx (FDX) advanced $4.49, or 2.69%, to $171.16 after the shipper announced a conditional deal to acquire TNT Express (TNTEY) for EUR 8.00 per share in a transaction valuing the Netherlands-based express delivery company at an implied equity value of about $4.8B. The company hopes it is more successful in its acquisition attempt than rival UPS (UPS), which had agreed a number of years ago to buy TNT for EUR 9.50 per share. UPS pulled out of its planned purchase after its proposed deal for TNT was blocked by regulators. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Axalta Coating Systems (AXTA), which gained $2.78, or 9.81%, to $31.11 after an affiliate of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) agreed to buy 20M of Axalta’s common shares for an aggregate purchase price of $560M, or $28.00 per share, from The Carlyle Group (CG). Also higher was Informatica (INFA), which advanced $1.96, or 4.28%, to $47.79 after agreeing to be acquired by the Permira funds and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board for approximately $5.3B, or $48.75 in cash per share. The official announcement follows recent stories from Reuters that the company was working on a deal with a private equity buyer. Among the noteworthy losers was Ocular Therapeutix (OCUL), which dropped $7.25, or 18.93%, to $31.05 after reporting that the company’s second of two Phase 3 clinical trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of its lead product candidate, OTX-DP, met only one of the study’s two primary efficacy endpoints. Also lower were shares of Woodward (WWD), which fell $3.06, or 5.95%, to $48.36 after Jefferies downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy and set a $52 price target on the shares, saying FY15 is another transition year for the company. INDEXES: The Dow slipped 5.43, or 0.03%, to 17,875.42, the Nasdaq lost 7.08, or 0.14%, to 4,910.23, and the S&P 500 declined 4.29, or 0.21%, to 2,076.33.
