    Goldman's stock is 'oversold' after post-earnings plunge, analyst says

    Shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc.'s bounced 1.1% in morning trade Thursday, off a 4 1/2-month closing low hit in the wake of disappointing first-quarter results, after analyst Christopher Wheeler at Atlantic Equities said the recent weakness was overdone. He upgraded the stock to overweight, after being at neutral for the past four months. Wheeler pointed out that the banking sector has been selling off over the last month amid concerns about the speed at which President Donald Trump will be able to enact his pro-growth and anti-regulation policies. "However, the response to [Goldman's] earnings miss was quite pronounced with the shares trading off sharply and some quite dramatic rhetoric about the health of the franchise and management disruption following Gary Cohn's departure," Wheeler wrote. "We believe the stock is oversold and upgrade it to overweight." Cohn is currently director of the National Economic Council. Goldman's stock had plunged 4.7% on Tuesday after the earnings miss, and 0.7% on Wednesday to close at the lowest level since Nov. 29. It has now shed 6.9% over the past three months, while the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF has tacked on 0.1% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 3.3%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Goldman's stock suffering biggest post-earnings drop in over six years

    It's not surprise that Goldman Sachs Group Inc.'s stock is declining in the wake of first-quarter results reported before the open, but how much it's falling may shock for investors. The banker's stock slumped 4.2% in morning trade to $216.78 after both profit and sales missed expectations. That would be the biggest one-day, post-earnings percentage decline since it fell 4.7% on Jan. 19, 2011 after Goldman reported fourth-quarter 2010 results. On the day following the previous 25 quarterly reports since then, the stock has fallen after 16 of them, by an average of 1.5%, according to an analysis of FactSet data. On the days after quarterly reports that the stock rose, the average gain was 2.8%. Analyst Steven Chuback at Instinet said Tuesday's report offers Goldman bears "quite a bit of fodder" given the significantly weaker trading results than its peers. He reiterated his neutral rating and $220 stock price target, which is just 0.8% above current levels. The stock has tumbled 9.3% year to date, while the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF has eased 0.6% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 4%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Financials turn negative for the year ahead of key bank earnings

    The S&P financial sector fell on Wednesday and turned negative for the year, in the latest indication that one of the strongest trades of the postelection rally is unraveling. The sector lost 0.9% on Wednesday, while the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF , the largest exchange-traded fund to specifically track financials, lost 0.8%. With the day's move, financials are now down 0.3% for the year. The banking sector had been one of Wall Street's most profitable trades in the aftermath of President Donald Trump's November election win. At one point, financials accounted for more than half the overall stock market's advance. However, it has fallen more than 8% since early March, leading the overall market lower. Losses have come amid broad concerns about valuation, as well as the Federal Reserve indicating it might only raise interest rates by three times in 2017. Bank profits tend to be stronger in periods of higher rates, and investors had previously expected as many as four hikes this year. Despite expectations for higher rates going forward, benchmark bond yields have been trading at multi-month lows. The 10-year Treasury yielded 2.24% late Wednesday, near a five-month low. Caution over the financial sector has also been elevated going into the first-quarter earnings season, with investors looking for confirmation that its valuations are justified. A number of key banks will be reporting quarterly results in the coming days, including J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. , Citigroup Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co. on Thursday.

    Winklevoss Capital says remains 'committed' to bringing bitcoin ETF to market

    Winklevoss Capital, whose filing for a bitcoin-tracking exchange-traded fund was nixed by the Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday, said it remained "optimistic and committed" to bringing its Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust ETF to market. "We agree with the SEC that regulation and oversight are important to the health of any marketplace and the safety of all investors," said Tyler Winklevoss, one of the owners of Winklevoss Capital, who is also the chief financial officer of Digital Asset Services. The comment came in an emailed statement. In its statement, the SEC said the proposed ETF wasn't consistent with rules that required a security be "designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices and to protect investors and the public interest." In order for such a product to have met this standard, the SEC wrote in a filing, "the exchange must have surveillance-sharing agreements with significant markets for trading the underlying commodity or derivatives on that commodity. And second, those markets must be regulated."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.

    Wells Fargo fires 4 managers as part of investigation into sales scandal

    Wells Fargo & Co. said Tuesday it terminated "for cause" four current or former senior managers in its community banking business following an ongoing investigation into the banking giant's sales practice scandal. The terminated managers are Claudia Russ Anderson, the former chief risk officer for the community bank; Pamela Conboy, lead regional president of Arizona; Shelley Freeman, the former Los Angeles regional president, and currently the head of consumer credit solutions; and Matthew Raphaelson, head of Community Bank strategy and initiatives. Wells Fargo said its investigation is expected to be completed before the shareholder meeting in April 2017. Wells Fargo was embroiled in a scandal last year, which led to the resignation of former Chief Executive John Stumpf, in which millions of credit-card and deposit accounts were opened without customers' knowledge in an effort to meet sales targets. The bank's stock, which slipped 0.2% in afternoon trade, has gained 21% over the past 12 months, while the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF has run up 44% and the S&P 500 has climbed 23%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Trump national security pick to replace Flynn reportedly turns down job

    President Donald Trump's replacement for national security adviser Michael Flynn has rejected the offer, according to media reports late Thursday. Vice Admiral Robert Harward, a former Navy SEAL, was offered the job by Trump following the resignation of Flynn because of his controversial communications with Russian officials. CBS News reported Harward turned down the job because he and "the administration had a dispute over staffing the security council." The Financial Times reported that Harward turned down the job because of his perceived conflict "between the call of duty and the obvious dysfunctionality" of the White House.

    Financial ETFs jump after Yellen hints that near-term rate hike is possible

    Exchange-traded funds that track the financial sector jumped on Tuesday, after Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen offered an upbeat outlook for the U.S. economy and suggested that interest rates could be raised at "upcoming meetings." Some took the comments as implying that the Federal Open Market Committee could raise key interest rates as early as the Fed's next policy meeting in March. Higher rates are seen as a tailwind for the sector, in large part because of bank net interest margin, or the difference between the interest they earn on the loans they make and the interest they pay out. Low rates can depress net interest margins, which can lead to lower earnings. The Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF rose 0.8% and was by far the biggest gainer among S&P 500 sectors. The SPDR S&P Bank ETF added 1.2% while the SPDR S&P Regional Banking ETF advanced 1.3%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Power Solutions downgraded as resignation of accountant, CFO leaves too much uncertainty

    Power Solutions International Inc. was downgraded to hold from buy at Wunderlich Securities, citing the uncertainty surrounding the power systems company's business prospects following the resignation of its independent accountant and chief financial officer. The stock had plummeted 62% on Friday to a record low, after Power Solutions disclosed in a filing that its independent accountant RSM US LLP had notified the company in its resignation letter that there were material weaknesses in internal controls over revenue recognition and overall control environment and that it could no longer reply on management representations. CFO Michael Lewis followed by agreeing to take a leave of absence and announcing his intent to resign effective March 4. The company said it started exploring strategic alternatives to improve its liquidity position and maximize shareholder value. Wunderlich analyst Liam Burke said that despite the long-term potential of Power Solutions' alternative fuel products, he can't remain bullish on the stock after the company's disclosures. "Despite the benefit of cost reductions and contracts that could drive future revenue, the current financial uncertainty outweighs any future potential, in our opinion," Burke wrote in a note to clients. The stock bounced 37% in morning trade, but was still down 67% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has run up 22%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
