4:24 pm Closing Market Summary: Stocks Begin August on Cautious Note Amid Growing Rate Hike Expectations (:WRAPX) : The major averages closed out the first week of August on a lower note with the S&P 500 losing 0.3%. The benchmark index settled just above its 200-day moving average (2,073) after testing that level for the first time since last Monday while the Nasdaq Composite (-0.3%) made the first intraday appearance below its 100-day moving average (5,037) since early July. For the week, the S&P 500 lost 1.3% while the Nasdaq Composite surrendered 1.7%.

The market declined for the second consecutive day with today's retreat lubricated by the July Nonfarm Payrolls report (215,000; Briefing.com consensus 229,000), which was good enough to leave the door open for a fed funds rate hike in September.

Things didn't look that bad by the end as equities rebounded during afternoon action with the S&P 500 erasing more than half of its loss. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite was down more than 1.0% at its worst point, but recovered about 70% of that decline.

With the market gearing up for a rate hike in September, the post-NFP weakness in equities was not that surprising; however, strength in the Treasury market was. Specifically, the 10-yr note stumbled immediately after the Nonfarm Payrolls report was released, but recovered that loss in the following minutes and continued higher throughout the day. As a result, the benchmark 10-yr yield fell five basis points to 2.17%, registering its fourth consecutive weekly decline. To be fair, the 2-yr note ended in the red with its yield climbing two basis points to 0.72%.

The lower Treasury yields at the long end of the curve gave a boost to the high-yielding utilities sector (+1.2%), which climbed to a two-month high. Meanwhile, seven of the remaining nine sectors posted losses while financials (+0.1%) and technology (+0.1%) registered slim gains.

The financial sector benefited from the growing rate hike expectations while technology outperformed thanks to relative strength in Apple (AAPL 115.52, +0.39) and high-beta chipmaker names. For its part, Apple spent the day inside a narrow range, but still lost 5.0% for the week after sliding below its 200-day moving average (121.18) on Monday. Meanwhile, chipmakers stayed ahead of the market throughout the day with NVIDIA (NVDA 22.98, +2.53) spiking 12.4% after reporting better than expected earnings and revenue. The broader PHLX Semiconductor Index rose 0.6%.

Elsewhere among cyclical sectors, energy (-1.9%) remained pressured as crude oil futures marched lower throughout the day. The energy sector ended the week lower by 3.6% while WTI crude fell 1.7% to $43.87/bbl, ending the week with a 7.4% loss.

Also of note, the health care sector (-0.2%) paced the early decline, but erased the bulk of its loss by the close. Biotechnology appeared to be the driver as the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB 368.67, -1.41) lost 0.4% after briefly crossing its 100-day moving average for the first time since late April. The high-flying ETF surrendered 3.8% for the week, but remains higher by 17.7% since the end of 2014.

Today's participation was roughly in-line with average as 810 million shares changed hands at the NYSE floor.

Taking another look at today's data, nonfarm payrolls added 215,000 jobs in July after adding an upwardly revised 231,000 in June while the Briefing.com consensus expected an increase of 229,000. Private payrolls added 210,000 jobs in July, down from an upwardly revised 227,000 from June while the consensus expected an increase of 220,000.

Average hourly earnings increased 0.2% in July after remaining flat in June while the average hourly workweek increased to 34.6 hours from 34.5. Taken altogether, aggregate earnings increased 0.7% after increasing 0.1% in June.

The July employment report fit in exactly with what the Fed is looking for. Job growth remained relatively robust after exceeding 200,000 for a third consecutive month, and the 0.7% increase in aggregate earnings should bolster consumption growth.

Separately, consumer credit increased by $20.70 billion in June after increasing by an upwardly revised $16.50 billion (from $16.10 billion) in May while the Briefing.com consensus expected an increase of $17.00 billion.

Monday's session will be free of economic data.

  • Nasdaq Composite +6.1% YTD 
  • S&P 500 +0.9% YTD 
  • Russell 2000 +0.2% YTD 
  • Dow Jones Industrial Average -2.6% YTD 
Week in Review: Nasdaq Leads Stocks Lower

The stock market began August on a defensive note with a retreat that sent the S&P 500 below its 50-day (2,099) moving average. The benchmark index was down as much as 0.8%, but narrowed its loss to 0.3% by the close, ending ahead of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (-0.5%). Equities hovered near their flat lines during morning action after the overnight session saw more selling in China. To that point, the Shanghai Composite lost 1.1% after the official Manufacturing PMI hit a five-month low (50.0; expected 50.2) while the Non-Manufacturing PMI improved to 53.9 from 53.8, representing a five-month high. Meanwhile, eurozone economies reported Manufacturing PMI readings that were mostly better than expected while economic data from the U.S. contributed to the weakness in the stock market as Construction Spending (+0.1%; Briefing.com consensus 0.6%) and the ISM Manufacturing Index (52.7; consensus 53.7) missed expectations. Treasuries spiked after the release economic data, which sent the 10-yr yield lower by four basis points to 2.15%, representing the lowest level since the start of June. That decline in yields was a supportive factor for the utilities sector, which gained 0.6%. Similar to utilities, consumer staples (+0.3%) and telecom services (+0.2%) posted gains while the health care sector (unch) settled just above its flat line.

The market registered its third consecutive decline on Tuesday with the S&P 500 shedding 0.2% while the Dow Jones Industrial Average (-0.3%) underperformed. Equity indices spent the first half of the trading day near their flat lines with the S&P 500 bouncing inside a six-point range. The benchmark index made a brief appearance in the green, but could not build on that momentary gain as the top-weighted technology sector (-0.7%) weighed. Specifically, Apple (AAPL 114.64, -3.80) was down as much as 4.4% in the early going, which kept a lid on the market. The tech heavyweight narrowed its loss to 3.2% by the close, ending near levels last seen in late January. Similar to Apple, most large cap tech components registered losses while chipmakers also underperformed with the PHLX Semiconductor Index falling 1.1% to widen its 2015 decline to 7.2%.

The stock market snapped its three-day skid on Wednesday with the S&P 500 climbing 0.3%. The benchmark index settled behind the Nasdaq Composite (+0.7%), but ahead of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (-0.1%), which ended in the red. The trading day began with gains, but the early strength was just a mirage for the Dow Jones Industrial Average as the price-weighted index retreated from its opening high and spent the afternoon near its flat line. Most notably, shares of Disney (DIS 110.53, -11.16) pressured the index throughout the day after the company reported earnings. Disney delivered a three-cent beat, but that was overshadowed by a poor showing from its media and parks & resorts segments. In addition to pressuring the Dow, Disney's results broadsided other media names, resulting in a 1.1% decline for the consumer discretionary sector even as retailers outperformed with SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT 98.99, +1.10) climbing 1.1%. Furthermore, Time Warner (TWX 79.80, -7.85) reported better than expected results, but the stock fell victim to industry-wide selling pressure, ending lower by 9.0%.

The key indices endured a broad-based retreat on Thursday with the move paced by the Nasdaq Composite. The tech-heavy index lost 1.6% while the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 surrendered 0.7% and 0.8%, respectively, ahead of Friday's Nonfarm Payrolls report for July. Equities opened just above their flat lines, but the S&P 500 dipped into the red and slid below its 100-day moving average (2,098) during the opening hour. Eight of ten sectors settled in the red with the consumer discretionary space (-1.3%) showing notable weakness for the second day in a row. Specifically, media names weighed on discretionary shares once again with Viacom (VIAB 44.10, -7.31) tumbling 14.2% after reporting in-line results on light revenue. Similarly, Viacom's peer 21st Century Fox (FOXA 29.87, -2.05) sank 6.4% despite reporting a bottom-line beat while Disney (DIS 108.55, -1.98) lost 1.8% after plunging 9.2% on Wednesday.

3:38 pm Treasury Market Summary (BONDX) : Yields Fall on Risk Aversion

1:30 pm Three major averages dip to new session lows -- Dow -121, S&P -14, Nasdaq Comp -48 (:TECHX) :  

1:05 pm Midday Market Summary: Growing Rate Hike Expectations Pressure Equities (:WRAPX) : The major averages languish near their session lows at midday with the S&P 500 (-0.7%) trading ahead of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (-0.8%) and Nasdaq Composite (-0.8%). Looking at the bigger picture, the S&P 500 hovers a few points below its 200-day moving average (2,073) while the Nasdaq has slipped below its 100-day average (5,036) for the first time since early July.

Today's retreat has been brought on by a middle-of-the-road July Nonfarm Payrolls report (215,000; Briefing.com consensus 229,000), which was seen as one of the last hurdles before a potential rate hike in September. While the response in the equity market has not been particularly surprising, it was surprising to see a rally in the Treasury market.

The 10-yr note slipped immediately after the report was released, but has followed that swoon with a rally to new highs, dropping the benchmark yield four basis points to 2.18%. The lower yield has given a boost to the utilities sector (+1.3%) while the remaining nine groups trade in negative territory.

The materials sector (-1.1%) is the weakest performer at this juncture, but more notably, the heavily-weighted health care sector (-1.0%) also sits among the biggest laggards. Biotechnology has been a notable soft spot, evidenced by a 2.1% decline in iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB 362.30, -7.78).

In addition to pressuring the health care sector, biotechnology has weighed on the Nasdaq, which trades behind the broader market. However, large cap technology names have held up better than the market. The technology sector is lower by 0.5% while high-beta chipmakers outperform with the PHLX Semiconductor Index trading flat. NVIDIA (NVDA 22.50, +2.05) has been a stand out performer, trading higher by 10.0% after beating earnings and revenue estimates.

Elsewhere among cyclical sectors, consumer discretionary (-0.5%) and financials (-0.5%) trade a bit ahead of the S&P 500 while industrials (-0.7%) and energy (-1.0%) lag.

Taking another look at today's data, nonfarm payrolls added 215,000 jobs in July after adding an upwardly revised 231,000 in June while the Briefing.com consensus expected an increase of 229,000. Private payrolls added 210,000 jobs in July, down from an upwardly revised 227,000 from June while the consensus expected an increase of 220,000.

Average hourly earnings increased 0.2% in July after remaining flat in June while the average hourly workweek increased to 34.6 hours from 34.5. Taken altogether, aggregate earnings increased 0.7% after increasing 0.1% in June.

10:58 am Currency Commentary: DXY Failing to Hold 98 (:SUMRX) :

  • The Dollar Index has climbed back over the 98 level but is not seeing much interest there. The DXY was able to push to 98.30 but has given up some of its gains to slide back and test 98 for support. All eyes were on the jobs number today. The report turned out to be relatively uneventful as it was in line with expectations and did not provide any glaring sub-metrics that would suggest the narrative has changed. Looking ahead to next week Q2 Unit Labor Costs and Productivity (Tue), JOLTs (Wed), Retail Sales (Thu) and PPI and Industrial Production (Fri) will all factor in to dollar sentiment. 
  • The euro sold off in reaction to the jobs report but is squeezing back toward its session highs as it regains losses. The euro tumbled to 1.08060 but was able to hold that level. This would eventually lead to some short covering that has now led to a squeeze of approx 80 pips. Economic data from the region was weak as both German and French Industrial Production numbers saw a decline and missed expectations.
  • The pound gave up the 1.55 area following the jobs number, sliding approx 80 pips before finding support at 1.5430. Sterling has been under pressure the past two days following a surprisingly dovish Interest Rate cycle. It is now working its way back higher with the euro as the DXY runs into resistance. Sterling is currently trading at 1.5468.
  • The yen fell down post-jobs for another test of 125 support. Once again yen held this level and has now pushed back approx 70 pips to 124.30. The Bank of Japan met last night but did not add any more stimulus. This was widely expected as the central bank continues to monitor activity before it decides to take its next steps (BONDX. FOREX). 

10:52 am Amarin announces US District Court has ruled that the co may promote certain uses of Vascepa that are not covered by the current FDA-approved label, so long as the promotion is 'truthful and non-misleading' (stock halted) (AMRN) : Co announces a United States District Court has ruled that Amarin may promote to healthcare professionals certain uses of Amarin's lead product, Vascepa (icosapent ethyl) capsules, that are not covered by current FDA-approved labeling for the drug so long as the promotion is truthful and non-misleading. The Court declaration covers promotion of the FDA-reviewed and agreed effects of Vascepa demonstrated in the ANCHOR clinical trial of patients with persistently high triglycerides after statin therapy and use of peer-reviewed scientific publications that present the current state of scientific research related to the potential of Vascepa to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Based on today's ruling Amarin plans to begin promotional activities consistent with the opinion as soon as possible.

The Court determined that Amarin may engage in truthful and non-misleading speech promoting the off-label use of Vascepa, i.e., to treat patients with persistently high triglycerides, and specifically make to healthcare professionals the following truthful and non-misleading statements:

  • Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Vascepa should not be taken in place of a healthy diet and lifestyle or statin therapy.
  • The ANCHOR trial demonstrates that Vascepa lowers triglyceride levels in patients with high (= 200 mg/dL and
The ruling today by the Honorable Judge Paul Engelmayer of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York granted Amarin and the physician plaintiffs relief in the form of a declaratory judgment. The ruling declared as unconstitutional, in this case with the specified disclosures, FDA off-label promotion restrictions. An appeal of the Court's ruling can be filed within 60 days. The ruling will remain in effect until the Court makes a final decision in the case unless the ruling is appealed and overturned. The underlying litigation may proceed until the Court enters a final order in the case. The lawsuit did not seek and the ruling did not grant approval of the indication contemplated by the ANCHOR study.

According to the report, nonfarm payrolls increased by 215,000 in July while the Briefing.com consensus expected a reading of 229,000. More notably, hourly earnings increased an in-line 0.2%, which suggests the Federal Reserve could begin raising rates as early as September.

7:41 am Overnight Treasury Summary (BONDX) : Treasuries Flat Ahead of Employment Report

  • Treasury yields are mostly unchanged overnight as all eyes turn to the July Employment Situation Report. After the abysmal Employment Cost Index growth in the second quarter (+0.2% versus a Briefing.com consensus of +0.6%), the Hourly Earnings component of the report could be the most important. The FOMC is still unsure of what the non-accelerating inflation rate of unemployment (:NAIRU) is after the structural damage to the U.S. economy from the financial crisis. There could be large reserves of disillusioned workers who are not actively job-hunting and therefore are not included in the unemployment rate. These workers would help keep a lid on wage growth as they reenter the workforce, allowing the Fed to delay interest rate policy normalization. That being the case, the FOMC is watching wage growth more closely than usual as an indicator of actual tightness in the job market rather than just assuming that an arbitrary unemployment rate foreshadows higher wage growth 
    • After Atlanta Fed President Lockhart's remarks earlier this week (he said that he would need to see "significant deterioration" in the economic picture to oppose a September rate hike), the burden of proof appears to be on the doves.

This was confirmed in an email late Friday night from one of your Board members to our Board Chairman. Yet you still have not made a new proposal.
