    Health care sector falls as likelihood of ACA repeal rises; UnitedHealth's stock leads Dow losers

    The health care sector traded broadly lower Tuesday, amid concerns over the potential effects of the Graham-Cassidy bill, which some analysts say is becoming increasingly likely to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF shed 0.9% in afternoon trade, with 56 of its 62 components trading lower. Among the XLV's most heavily-weighted components, UnitedHealth Group's stock dropped 1.8% to pace the Dow Jones Industrial Average's decliners. The price decline of $3.61 was shaving 25 points off the Dow, which was up 44 points. Analyst Ana Gupte at Leerink Research said the bill could lead to "greater earnings downside in the near term than previous House and Senate bills for ACA-levered stocks." Among companies that Gupte said are at particular risk, shares of Centene Corp. slumped 4.6% and Molina Healthcare Inc. gave up 6.1%. Elsewhere, shares of Aetna Inc. fell 3.4%, Humana Inc. slid 3.2%, Cigna Corp. declined 1.9% and Anthem Inc. was down 2.0%. Gupte said diversified managed care organizations (MCOs) like Humana and Cigna are more defensive, though exposure should be manageable for UnitedHealth, Aetna and Anthem. The XLV has gained 4.3% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has tacked on 2.2%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Shares of McDonald's log worst daily drop in a year, exact 35-point toll on Dow industrials

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Tuesday notched a fresh all-time high, despite a drag produced by McDonald's Corp. The fast-food behemoth cut more than 35 points from the price-weighted Dow , with its stock down $5.20, or 3.2%--marking its worst performance among the benchmark's 30 components. A decline at this level would represent the worst one-day tumble for the company since July 26, 2016, according to FactSet data. A $1 move in any one of the Dow components equates to a 6.89-point swing in the equity average. Despite the headwind, the Dow finished at a record , with shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. helped to offset McDonald's share drop . Goldman's shares closed up $4.89, or 2.2%. The reason for shares of McD's retreat were being attributed to a bearish note from research firm M Science. All three benchmarks, including the S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq Composite Index finished at records, with the Dow ending up more than 60 points, or 0.3%, 21,118.86.

    Goldman's stock surges after revenue growth target unveiled but some analysts are 'skeptical'

    Shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. rallied Tuesday, to provide the biggest boost for Dow Jones Industrial Average , but some Wall Street analysts weren't as enthusiastic as investors about the details of Goldman's outline for growth. The stock climbed $6.29, or 2.8%, in afternoon trade. That added about 43 points to the Dow's price, which was up 63 points at 22,121, above the Aug. 7 record close of 22,118.42. Goldman said earlier it targeted $5 billion in incremental revenue over the next three years, including more than $1 billion from its fixed income, currency and commodities (FICC) trading business, another $1 billion from its investment management business and over $2 billion from its lending and financing efforts. JMP analyst Devin Ryan appreciated the "good detail" around where the biggest opportunities are seen, but characterized the areas of focus as "largely incremental more than transformational." Buckingham Research analyst James Mitchell reiterated his neutral rating, saying while Goldman's revenue growth target was "laudable," he remained "somewhat skeptical," as much of the growth is expected from "challenging markets where rivals are fiercely competing for market share." Goldman's stock has lost 5.3% year to date, while the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF has rallied 6.7% and the Dow has run up 11.5%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

As part of the restructuring, the company said it plans to eliminate spend and workers associated with de-prioritized drug pipeline programs, close multiple company sites, including its Rhode Island manufacturing facility and certain regional and country-based offices, and outsource certain non-core finance and IT roles. Alexion also plans to relocate its headquarters from New Haven, Ct. to Boston, Ma. by mid-2018, with about 400 jobs based in Boston; New Haven will be Alexion's "Center of Excellence" with about 450 jobs based there in research labs, clinical supply and quality teams, nurse case management and enterprise business services.

    Facebook links thousands of political ads to Russian troll farm

    Facebook Inc. said Wednesday that it traced ad sales totaling $100,000 from Russian accounts, some of which are likely linked to a troll farm in St. Petersburg called the Internet Research Agency. The roughly 3,000 ads from 470 accounts ran between June of 2015 and May of 2017 and focused on political issues such as gun rights, immigration, LGBTQ issues and racial discrimination. According to the Washington Post, some of the ads specifically name checked Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. The company's blog also said it conducted a broad search for ads that found an additional $50,000 tied to 2,200 ads that "might have originated in Russia" and had "very weak signals of a connection ... not associated with any organized effort." During and after the 2016, election Facebook was subject to criticism that it spread false information, though chief executive Mark Zuckerberg has said that only a "very small amount" is fake or hoaxes. During the regular session Wednesday, the company's shares edged up nearly 1% to $172.09, nearly touching its record closing high of $172.45 set July 28.

    Merck to buy privately-held biotech Rigontec for 115 mln euros upfront

    Merck & Co. said Wednesday that it will acquire privately-held biotech Rigontec for €115 million ($137 million) upfront to Rigontec's shareholders and up to €349 million ($416 million) in additional milestone-contingent payments.
