Greece credit rating upgraded at Moody's, outlook revised to stable
Greece's sovereign bond rating was upgraded one notch to Caa2 from Caa3 at Moody's Investors Service, citing the release of a EUR8.5 billion tranche under the country's adjustment program allowing the repayment of debt, improved fiscal prospects and tentative signs of a stabilizing economy. The outlook was revised to positive, which implies another upgrade is likely, from stable. The sovereign bond rating is still 8 notches below investment grade. The short-term debt rating was affirmed at not prime. "Beyond the near-term impact of allowing Greece to repay upcoming maturities, we consider the conclusion of the review to be a positive signal regarding the future path of the programme, as it required the Greek government to legislate a number of important reform measures," Moody's said in a research note. "The decision to assign a positive outlook to the Caa2 rating reflects Moody's view that the prospects for a successful conclusion of Greece's third adjustment programme have improved, which in turn raises the likelihood of further debt relief." Greece's Athex Composite Share Price Index has rallied 27.5% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 8.9%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Dow, S&P 500 book 3rd straight loss, even as oil and health care rally
The Dow industrials and the S&P 500 on Thursday logged their third straight finish in the red, despite crude-oil prices gaining after a recent sell-off, and as health-care stocks lured buyers. Still, sharp gains in the health-care sector wasn't enough for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 index to halt a recent downtrend. The Dow closed little changed but enough for the index to end off 0.1% lower at 21,397, the S&P 500 index [: SPX] closed down, 1 point, or less than 0.1%, at 2,434, while the Nasdaq Composite Index logged a slight gain of less than 0.1% at 6,236. Health-care was the start of the day's action, with the sector, as measured by the exchange-traded Health Care Select Sector SPDR ETF on pace to book its best weekly gain, up 9.3%, since the period ended Nov. 11. A popular biotechnology ETF, the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF , also was on track for its best weekly gain since November. Those moves came as lawmakers released a draft of the GOP-led, health-care bill that is aimed at repealing and replacing Obamacare. Among companies, health-care names Johnson & Johnson and Merck & Co. Inc. [: MRK] were among the best performers among blue chips. Looking ahead, the Federal Reserve's test of the banking sectors financial health will be released after the close, which could influence trade for banks including Goldman Sachs Group , and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.
GOP health bill boosts hospital, health insurer and drug stocks
Hospital system stocks rallied as much as 8% on Thursday following the release of the Senate GOP health bill, which appears to be more favorable to hospitals than the House of Representatives bill passed in early May. Tenet Healthcare Corporation shares jumped 8%, Community Health Systems Inc. shares skyrocketed 8.2%, HCA Healthcare Inc. shares rose 3.6% and Universal Health Services Inc. shares lifted 2.6% in midday trade, compared with a 1.6% rise in the Health Care Select Sector SPDR . Health insurer stocks also rose Tuesday, with UnitedHealth Group shares up 1.4%, Aetna Inc. stock rising 1.1%, Humana Inc. shares lifting 1.3% and Anthem Inc. shares up 0.9%, compared with a 0.2% rise in the S&P 500 . The Senate health bill "tries to phase in the pain" of changes to the Affordable Care Act like Medicaid spending cuts, said Spencer Perlman, director of health-care research at Veda Partners, who described the Senate plan as having "the same architecture" but "nicer furnishings." Still, the benefit for hospitals is only in the short-term and thus probably overdone, he said. "Clearly, the Senate bill is viewed as less disruptive than the House bill to the number of people currently receiving insurance," said Stephanie Miller, senior analyst at Height Securities. But "the initial reaction may have oversimplified how different this bill is," she said, predicting that stocks that have risen on the news may be "rebalancing" in the coming days. Drug stocks also rose in Tuesday trade, with the SPDR S&P Pharmaceutical ETF rising 1.7% and the SPDR S&P Biotech ETF rising 1.6%, which could be happening because the health bill has given investors confidence in Republicans achieving another legislative priority, tax reform, Miller said. Shares of the Health Care Select Sector SPDR have risen 8.7% over the last three months, compared with a 3.9% rise in the S&P 500 .

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick ousted after pressure by big investors: NYT
Travis Kalanick, who co-founded ride-sharing service Uber, has stepped down from his post as chief executive officer, The New York Times reported on Wednesday, citing sources.

The letter, obtained by The New York Times, stated that the company needs a new leader and after hours of talks, Kalanick agreed. "I love Uber more than anything in the world and at this difficult moment in my personal life I have accepted the investors request to step aside so that Uber can go back to building rather than be distracted by another fight," Kalanick said in a statement, according to the Times.

Cypress investors elect former CEO's board nominees after activist fight
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. investors voted for two board nominees put forth by the company's former chief executive Tuesday, according to preliminary results, booting one director and replacing a chairman who resigned during an activist battle that led to a public fight between Cypress and its founder. Preliminary tabulations showed that J. Daniel McCranie and Camillo Martino were elected to the board with 148 million votes, while Eric Benhamou received about 60 million votes and will not return as a director, according to a statement from CypressFirst, a group formed by founder and former CEO T.J. Rodgers. Rodgers began an activist campaign after former Cypress Chairman Ray Bingham partnered with Chinese investors in a fund that agreed to acquire a Silicon Valley chip firm, Lattice Semiconductor Corp. . Bingham stepped down last week, but the campaign to oust Benhamou against Cypress's wishes continued. Cypress, which confirmed the preliminary voting results in its own release, had said that the entire campaign was Rodgers's attempt to force his way back into the company, but Rodgers sounded a different note in the CypressFirst announcement. "We are grateful to Cypress stockholders for their support of our two candidates," the Cypress CEO for 34 years said. "I can now get back full-time to my work on innovative technologies for the IoT and in alternative energy and let the Cypress directors do their work." Cypress stock fell 0.6% to $13.23 in Tuesday's regular session, but bounced back slightly in after-hours trading.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Whole Foods buyout by Amazon investigated by shareholder rights firms
Whole Foods Market Inc.'s stock soared 27% to a two-year high in morning trade Friday, but some law firms aren't convinced that the deal to be bought out by Amazon.com Inc. is fair to its shareholders. Johnson & Weaver LLP said it has launched an investigation into whether Whole Foods' board breached fiduciary responsibilities with the proposed sale of the company. The firm said it was concerned whether the proposed deal price of $42 a share represents "adequate consideration," given that at least one Wall Street analyst had a $47 stock price target. The average price target of the analysts surveyed by FactSet was $34.61, with $47 the highest and $19 the lowest. Levi & Korsinsky LLP said it was investigating the "fairness" of the sales of the company. The $42-per-share bid was 36% below the record close of $65.24 reached on Oct. 25, 2013.

Russia probe expands to include Kushner's business dealings: report
The business and financial dealings of Jared Kushner -- President Donald Trump's son-in-law and top adviser -- are now under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, the Washington Post reported late Thursday.

The Post said one subject of scrutiny is Kushner's meeting with Russian development banker Sergey Gorkov in December, when Kushner's family real estate business was seeking financing for a Manhattan office building. The Post said the finances of other Trump associates are also being looked into, including former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

Wall Street's 'fear index' is on pace for its biggest daily pop in a month
A measure of implied volatility on Wall Street on Thursday was on track to post its largest one-day rise since mid-May as U.S. equities saw firm losses, pressured by a resumption of selling in the highflying technology sector. The CBOE Volatility Index, or VIX, known colloquially as Wall Street's fear gauge was up 10.5% at 11.76 at last check, putting it on track to rise by the most since May 17, when it popped more than 46%. The metric, which tracks options betting on moves in the S&P 500 index a month into the future, has been preternaturally quiescent over the past several months, but has had bouts of relative choppiness as investors fret about market valuations and absorb geopolitical developments, including the U.K.'s efforts to renegotiate longstanding trade agreements with the European Union. Thursday's action comes as the Nasdaq Composite Index , which is on pace to fall four of the past five trading sessions, was suffering a sharp early decline, down 1.1% and on track to post its first losing month since October. Valuations around popular tech giants, including Facebook Inc. , Amazon.com Inc. , Google Inc.-parent Alphabet , Apple Inc. , and Netflix Inc. have raised concerns that those companies, known as FAANG stocks, have risen too far, too fast and are due for a sharp pullback. That sentiment has pressured the rest of the market, which has been aided in its recent run to all-time highs by the tech rally. On Wednesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished at a record despite a broad-market decline. Those moves came after the Federal Reserve lifted key interest rates a quarter-point and detailed its plans to normalize monetary policy and reduce its $4.5 trillion balance sheet, accumulated during the 2008-'09 financial crisis. An accommodative central bank has been seen by some as underpinning what has been a eight-year bull market in equities. The jump in the VIX, however, hasn't coincided with a clear flight to quality--typically associated with a rise in the fear index. Government bonds, for example, viewed as haven assets, were seeing some selling, with the 10-year Treasury note yield up 4.2 basis points at 2.17%, approaching its levels from the beginning of the week and well off its lows set Thursday. Bond prices and yields move inversely.

Dow's record close powered by gains in Goldman, Travelers, Home Depot
The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Wednesday logged a record close, bucking a downbeat trend in the broader market, on the back of gains in shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. , Travelers Cos. Inc. , and Home Depot Inc. . That trio was contributed nearly 50 points combined to the price-weighted blue-chip gauge, with the bulk of that advance coming from Home Depot. Trading in U.S. equities comes after the Federal Reserve on Wednesday lifted key interest rates, as expected, and outlined plans to shrink its $4.5 trillion balance sheet in 2017. The interest-rate hike and the balance-sheet reduction should be supportive to bank shares, which benefit from higher rates. However, some read the Fed's move as being somewhat tempered by recent weakness in U.S. economic reports, notably inflation, which appears to be coming under the Fed's 2% target rate. The rest of the market closed lower, with the Nasdaq Composite Index finishing off 0.4%, and the S&P 500 index weighed by losses in technology and energy , to bring the broad-market gauge down about 0.1%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Nasdaq turns firmly lower as investors resume tech selling after Fed moves
The Nasdaq Composite Index Wednesday afternoon saw losses accelerate, as the Federal Reserve lifted key interest-rates a quarter-point, as expected, and detailed plans to reduce its $4.5 trillion balance sheet this year. The Nasdaq Composite Index was recently down 0.9%, which would wipe out Tuesday's gains and extend a downtrend for the technology-laden index, which has been under pressure amid persistent concerns that high flying tech names, including Amazon.com Inc. and Nvidia Corp. , are overvalued. Those names were trading lower after teasing earlier gains. The Nasdaq is on track to finish the session in the red three of the past four sessions. A popular exchange-traded fund that tracks the tech sector, the Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF was off 1%, led by losses in Qorvo Inc. and Western Digital Corp. . The drop in tech and a selloff in the energy sector were combining to drag the S&P 500 index down, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average was bucking the trend, up a modest 0.1%.
