- The Nikkei225 took another huge tumble overnight, closing down 6.4% after Chinese investors came back from a three-day holiday. The sharp decline matches all of last week's losses and puts the Nikkei right back in bear market territory off the May highs. Most European indices started off the session down one percent or more, but have shrugged off the Asian volatility to trade into the black. As of writing the DJIA is up %, the S&P500 is up and the Nasdaq has gained %.
- The US data out this morning helps support the thesis of a gradual economic recovery, paving the way for the Fed taper. The May retail sales report was slightly better than expected and the April numbers were revised slightly higher. The initial jobless claims were a bit below expectations, dropping the four-week MA for new claims to 345.25K v 352.50K prior. All the inventory data came in right in line, and analysts suggested that inventories would have a neutral GDP contribution in Q2.
- The yen has only gotten stronger with the ongoing correction in the Nikkei225. USD/JPY bounced off two-month lows just below the 94 handle in the early morning hours and has traded sideways since then. Euro strength peaked after the German Wholesale Prices data after 02.:00ET overnight, with EUR/USD trading as low as 1.3280 this morning. An IMF report expressing concern about Portugal sent the pair right back toward 1.3350.
- The June quarter earnings season is fast approaching; two big names were out with guidance this morning. DuPont cut its outlook for the first half and full year, warning that unseasonably cool and wet weather in North America and Europe has impacted ag segment revenue and costs. Shares of DD are down slightly. Meanwhile reliable guider Nucor's Q2 outlook was sub-par (as usual), although LIFO charges were null for the quarter. Earnings were instead impaired by impairment charges from a JV. NUE is up nearly 3% thanks to the absence of LIFO charges, while competitor AKS is up more than 3%.
- Newspaper and broadcasting conglomerate Gannett is buying local television firm Belo Corp for $1.5 billion, or $13.75/shr in cash, a 28% premium to the prior close. The deal would double Gannett's broadcasting holdings, making it the fourth-largest US owner of network affiliates. Shares of GCI are up 25% on the news, at five-year highs.
