Kindred Healthcare tp halt dividend after March to pay debt, invest in growth
Shares of Kindred Healthcare Inc. (KND) rose more than 4% late Monday after the company said it will halt its dividend after a March dividend payment in order to pay down debt and invest in growth.

Dow on the verge of making history with a 13th gain on Tuesday
Lucky 13! That's the history-setting mark the Dow Jones Industrial Average is on track to hit, if it finishes in positive territory on Tuesday. That would mark the 13th straight record close for the Dow
, which would represent the longest such record streak in the history of the roughly 120-year old equity benchmark, according to Dow Jones data. On Monday, the stock gauge registered its 12th straight record, finishing up 16 points, or 0.1%, at 20,837--matching the longest record streak going back to 1987. The S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq Composite Index also closed higher. The moves come ahead of a highly anticipated address from President Donald Trump Tuesday night in front of a joint session of Congress, where investors hope that he will offer more details on his business-friendly policies. Equities, here and abroad, have rallied mightily since Trump's election victory in November, on the hopes that he will make good on campaign pledges to deliver tax reform, loosen regulation and back a raft of fiscal stimulus plans.

ABC's politically charged Oscars broadcast is lowest in nine years
Walt Disney-owned network ABC drew its lowest Oscar viewership in nine years. The Oscars award ceremony pulled in an average 32.9 million total viewers, according to Nielsen data, which was down compared with last year's 34.4 million viewers. Though the broadcast has been slipping in recent years it still managed to beat out the Golden Globes by 12.9 million viewers and the Grammys by 6.8 million. The ceremony garnered a 22.4/36 Nielsen overnight rating for its telecast of the 89th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday. That means 22.4% of households with a TV watched the awards ceremony and 36% of households actually watching TV at the time were tuned into the Oscars. "Moonlight" took home the night's grand prize of best picture, beating out favorite "La La Land" in a surprise twist ending. The ceremony, coming a little more than a month after President Donald Trump's inauguration, served as a platform for filmmakers and host Jimmy Kimmel to make political commentary and jokes. The 2017 telecast was on par with last year's show, which had a 22.5/36 rating. Shares of Disney are up nearly 16% in the trailing 12-month period, while the S&P 500 index is up more than 21% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 25% in the same time frame.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Wireless carrier stocks fall amid budding price war in unlimited data
A budding price war in unlimited data plans sent shares of the major wireless carriers lower in, after AT&T Inc. and T-Mobile U.S. Inc. fired the latest salvos on Monday. AT&T's stock slid 1.4% in afternoon trade after the company lowered the price of its unlimited plan to $90 from $100, less than two weeks after opening up the plan to all subscribers. T-Mobile's stock shed 0.6% after the company said early Monday that it was giving a free line of service for a limited time to virtually all of its customers with at least two voice lines. On Feb. 14, Verizon had finally caved to competition by reintroducing unlimited wireless plans, in response similar moves by its competition. Verizon's stock slumped 1.6% in afternoon trade Monday. Elsewhere, Sprint Corp.'s stock shed 0.3%. Meanwhile, the iShares U.S. Telecommunications ETF tacked on 0.3%.

Under Armour's stock drops after analyst recommends investors sell
Shares of Under Armour Inc. dropped 1.3% in midday trade Monday, after Instinet turned bearish on the athletic apparel and accessories company, citing concerns that the company no longer warrants a high-growth valuation. Analyst Simeon Siegel cut his rating to reduce from neutral, and slashed his stock price target to $16, which was 26% below current prices, from $27. He wrote in a note to clients that Under Armour "appears to have matured past its high-growth phase, while still enjoying its high-growth multiple." He said that while he believes the company has an "exciting path" ahead in terms of sales growth, even in an overly optimistic scenario the stock is "fairly valued at best," and could be hurt by anything short of perfections. Under Armour's price-to-earnings ratio of 47.97, according to FactSet, was still nearly double rival Nike Inc.'s P/E ratio of 25.40. Under Armour's stock has plunged 30% over the past three months, while Nike's stock has soared 12% and the S&P 500 has gained 6.9%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Sales of laptops, desktops and tablets to stagnate through 2021
Global shipments of personal computing devices, such as PCs, desktops and tablets are expected to decline further over the next five years, according to new estimates from industry tracker IDC. An estimated 418.2 million units are expected to be shipped in 2021, compared with 435 million in 2016, according to IDC. That represents a five-year compound annual growth rate of -0.8%. The bearish forecast follows several years of declines in PCs and traditional tablets. Last year, tablet shipments alone were down 15.6%, while PC shipments fell 5.7%. This comes as consumer device manufacturers, such as Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc. , continue to put a greater focus on developing software services. Shares of Apple gained 0.1% to $136.85 on Monday, while Alphabet's traded flat around $847.77. The S&P 500 was down around 80 points.

Urban Outfitters downgraded to sell at MKM because Anthropologie is 'too edgy' and expensive
Shares of Urban Outfitters Inc. fell 0.9% in morning trade Monday, after MKM Partners turned bearish on the apparel and accessories retailer because of concerns over sales and margin declines at its Anthropologie stores. Analyst Roxanne Meyer cut her rating to sell, after being at neutral since September 2015. She slashed her stock price target to $20, which is 25% below current levels, from $25. "Our negative thesis is primarily based on our view that sales and margins will deteriorate meaningfully in 2017 at Anthropologie, though we also see risk at Urban Outfitters as it laps reductions in markdowns and as key brands widen distribution," Meyer wrote in a note to clients. "We believe Anthropologie is too edgy, lacks diversity (i.e., over-exposed to bare and cold-shoulder looks) and generally has prices that are too high." Urban Outfitter's stock has tumbled 21% over the past three months, while the SPDR S&P Retail ETF has lost 6.1% and the S&P 500 has climbed 7%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Super Micro plummets after report Apple cut ties on security fears
Super Micro Computer Inc. dropped 8% in late trading Thursday after a report said Apple Inc. ended its relationship with the company after finding "a potential security vulnerability" in a data center server provided by Super Micro. The Information's Amir Efrati reported, citing a Super Micro executive and unnamed sources, that Apple discovered an issue with the Super Micro equipment in early 2016, and that Super Micro stopped shipping equipment to Apple by the middle of the year.

Private prison stocks jump after Trump official says feds will continue using facilities
President Donald Trump's attorney general Thursday rescinded a memorandum that would have ended the federal government's use of private prisons, and stocks in companies that provide those services jumped. CoreCivic Inc., formerly Corrections Corp. of America, rose 3.7%, and The GEO Group gained 1.5% in immediate late trading after the move was announced. Both stocks suffered greatly in the wake of the Justice Department's announcement in August that it would phase out using private prisons, which closely followed a Mother Jones investigation detailing life in one of CoreCivic's facilities in Louisiana. CoreCivic took on its new name and slashed staff amid the fallout. Private prison companies rebounded after Trump won the election, however; The GEO Group has gained 98.2% and CoreCivic is up 136.8% since Nov. 8, 2016, even before Thursday afternoon's bump.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Mexico peso rallies on comments from Trump administration officials
The Mexican peso strengthened against the dollar on Thursday after several top Trump administration officials stressed the importance of maintaining positive relations with the U.S.'s southern neighbor. The peso strengthened early in the day, part of a broad-based rally in emerging-market currencies, after U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin offered what some market strategists characterized as a lackluster defense of the U.S.'s strong dollar policy. The dollar was down 1.4% at 19.65 pesos in recent trade, compared with 19.94 pesos late Wednesday in New York. He also emphasized that relations between the two countries remain positive. The currency added to its gains later in the day after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said his trip to Mexico was "forward-looking," and that officials from the two countries were focused on their common interests. He also said that Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Videgaray also said the meeting was "a good step" toward cooperation. The currency is presently trading at levels not seen since Nov. 9, the day after the U.S. election. It rallied sharply earlier in the week after Mexico's central bank introduced a new hedging facility. "[President Donald Trump] said a lot of inflammatory stuff during the campaign but in reality their relationship is going to have to be one of mutual cooperation and strong ties," said Win Thin, global head of emerging-market currency strategy at Brown Brothers Harriman.

Qualcomm to subsidize virtual-reality costs for headset makers
Qualcomm Corp. is doubling down on its virtual-reality efforts as it seeks to make its processors more attractive to headset manufacturers over rivals, such as Intel Corp. . The company announced Thursday a head-mounted display accelerator program designed to help original equipment manufacturers enter the virtual-reality market by subsidizing some of their engineering costs. Qualcomm said it will help to reduce the time it takes to create, develop and go to market, and estimates the program will help manufacturers get a commercial product available "within just a few months." Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips, which compete with similar chips produced by Intel, power the technology behind immersive virtual-reality experiences. Last year, the company said it was developing a standalone headset that could be easily adapted to specific manufacturers' specializations. At CES this year, Intel also showcased its own standalone virtual-reality headset called Project Alloy. Shares of Qualcomm were inactive in premarket trade. They've declined by more than 16% in the past three months, underperforming a 7.2% increase for the S&P 500 . Intel's shares are up 2.5% in the past three months.

PepsiCo will change Naked Juice labeling as part of settlement with healthy foods watchdog
PepsiCo Inc. will change the labeling of its Naked Juice smoothie products as part of a settlement agreement with the watchdog Center for Science in the Public Interest. The changes, which PepsiCo plans to implement over the next eight months, include changes to the naming system to explicitly state the nature of the product -- such as "fruit juice" or "fruit and veggie juice" -- and what's inside of it, for example, "kale flavored blend of 8 juices with other natural flavors," according to the agreement. Any imagery on the labels and descriptive statements will also reflect the product's most significant ingredients, and the claim "no sugar added" will be displayed less prominently, along with the disclaimer that the product is not a low-calorie food. The company also said it will not use "unsubstantiated health-content or health-based claims" in marketing or advertising of Naked juices. The settlement does not count as an admission of wrongdoing, PepsiCo and Naked Juice said. CSPI, which advocates for a healthier food system, commended PepsiCo on its cooperation and "commitment to transparency." "Consumers deserve to know at a glance what they're buying, and Naked's labeling and marketing enhancements accomplish that," litigation director Maia Kats said. According to the agreement, the various labeling and marketing commitments expire in five years maximum, and could expire earlier depending on changes in the products or relevant regulations that would affect the entire agreement. PepsiCo agreed to remove the "all natural" claim from its Naked line in 2013 as part of a $9 million lawsuit settlement. PepsiCo shares were up a scant 1.0% in morning trade Tuesday. Shares have surged 6.9% over the last three months, compared with a 7.0% rise in the S&P 500 . Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

General Mills shares drop after it lowers sales outlook
General Mills Inc. shares dropped 4.1% in Friday premarket trading after the food company lowered its guidance for fiscal 2017, ending in May. The revision is largely due to recent sales performance of U.S. yogurt and soup. General Mills organic net sales are now expected to fall about 4%, which is the low end of the 3%-to-4% decline in the previous guidance range, "due primarily to a widening gap between the company's level of promotional activity and that of competitors in the U.S. yogurt and soup categories."

Trump national security pick to replace Flynn reportedly turns down job

Trump will have impact on Fed but markets should be reassured by continuity, Bullard says
President Donald Trump's appointments to the Federal Reserve will press for their desired policy but markets should be reassured that a lot of continuity will remain in place at the central bank, said St. Louis Fed President James Bullard on Wednesday. "You still have a lot of institutional memory. You have a very good staff. They [the Trump appointees] can push policies in a direction, but generally speaking there is a lot of continuity and I think markets should be reassured by that," Bullard said in an interview on the Fox Business Network. The St. Louis Fed President said that he thinks the Trump administration and the central bank will "get along famously." "The Fed tends to be a very collegial organization, a very professional organization. And I think we'll do well in this environment, as we have in others," he said. There will soon be three vacancies on the Fed's seven member board of governors that Trump can fill. And Fed chief Janet Yellen's term expires next February.
