    FSOC discussed designation of a systemically important institution

    The Financial Stability Oversight Council said Friday it discussed the ongoing annual reevaluation of its designation of a nonbank financial company -- in all likelihood, a reference to American International Group , as media reports suggested the group of regulators would ahead of the meeting. The FSOC didn't say what, if anything, was decided. If the FSOC ruled that AIG was no longer a systemically important financial institution, the insurer would no longer be subject to federal oversight via the Federal Reserve. AIG was bailed out by the federal government during the financial crisis of 2008.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    All 50 state Medicaid directors oppose Obamacare repeal bill

    All 50 state Medicaid directors have come out against Senate Republicans' latest bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, joining the chorus of opposition from health and insurance groups. In a statement Thursday, the bipartisan National Association of Medicaid Directors warned the so-called Graham-Cassidy bill would place a huge financial burden on states. "Taken together, the per-capita caps and the envisioned block grant would constitute the largest intergovernmental transfer of financial risk from the federal government to the states in our country's history," the group said. NAMD also said the bill vastly underestimates the ability of states to create their own health-care programs in just two years, as the bill requires. "The vast majority of states will not be able to do so within the two-year timeframe envisioned here, especially considering the apparent lack of federal funding in the bill to support these critical activities," they said. The Senate is expected to vote on the measure next week. Almost every major health-care organization, key Republican governors and a major insurance lobby have come out opposing the bill.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Bank stocks log worst one-day slide in more than 3 months

    Financial shares on Tuesday registered their worst single-session slump in months as benchmark yields declined amid elevated geopolitical worries swirling in the market. A popular exchange-traded fund used to bet on financial performance, the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF , closed off 2.1%, marking its steepest one-day slide since May 17, when it fell 3.2%, according to FactSet data.

Bond prices and yields move inversely. More broadly, the financial sector was the worst performer among the S&P 500's 11, off 2.2%. The broad-market gauge closed down 0.8% at 2,457, the Dow Jones Industrial Average ended off 1.1% at 21,753, with Goldman's shares exacting the biggest toll on the price-weighted benchmark, about 55 points.

CreditSights analysts said the most vulnerable lines of business include allied lines, commercial and private auto, commercial multiple peril, homeowners and farmowners multiple peril, crop mulitple peril, private crop, fire, flood and inland marine.

    Investors are misinterpreting positive benefit of $10 MoviePass on cinemas

    MoviePass, a movie theater subscription service, on Tuesday unveiled plans to lower the cost of its subscription to $10 a month from $30-and-up. Shares of AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. , which have already been beaten up recently, fell as much as 5.8% during the day. It was followed down by shares of Imax Corp. , which fell 2.4%, Regal Entertainment Group's 1.9% drop, Marcus Corp.'s 1.5% fall, while Cinemark Holdings fell as much as 1%. MoviePass allows members to see a movie a day for just $10 a month. B. Riley analyst Eric Wold wrote in a note to investors that he believed investors were misinterpreting the MoviePass news as a negative for the box office and film exhibitors. "The key thing to keep in mind is that MoviePass cannot do this in a bubble -- they needed the approval of both studios and exhibitors, who would not sign off on anything that was detrimental to their financial outlook," Wold wrote. "Studios and exhibitors are not taking a discount under the MoviePass model. We understand that MoviePass is absorbing the ticket discount and hoping to make up the discount through monetizing the data and the breakage." Wold said this is a positive for the cinema group as well as box office and concession results, though he believes it will be a small benefit. Shares of AMC have declined nearly 61% in the year to date, while Imax shares are down nearly 41%, Regal Entertainment and Marcus Corp shares are both down almost 19% and shares of Cinemark are down 6%. By comparison, the S&P 500 index is up more than 10%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    U.S. stocks end sharply lower as tech shares sell off again

    U.S. stocks fell sharply on Thursday, with both the Dow and the S&P 500 suffering their biggest one-day decline since May as the technology sector resumed its downward trend, overshadowing positive news in the financial sector.

The Nasdaq Composite Index sank 1.7%, or 100 points, to 5,663.75. Thursday marked the third straight session where the Nasdaq moved 1% in either direction, volatility that is almost entirely due to the tech sector , to which the Nasdaq is heavily weighted, and which ended 1.8% lower on Thursday.
