Dow ends at 34,000 for first time; S&P 500 notches record as jobless claims hit pandemic low, retail sales surgeThe S&P 500 and Dow clinched fresh records Thursday, after economic reports continued to affirm a healthy recovery from the pandemic, highlighted by retail sales surging in March on the back of fiscal stimulus checks to consumers and jobless benefit claims falling to a fresh low for the COVID period. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up more than 300 points at a fresh milestone at 34,000, on a preliminary basis, the S&P 500 index notched a 1.1% advance to log its all-time closing high at around 4,170 and the Nasdaq Composite Index finished 1.3% higher at about 14,039, marking its first finish above 14,000 since February and its third-highest close in its history. U.S. retail sales surged almost 10% in March thanks to $1,400 stimulus checks paid to consumers by the federal government. Sales climbed 9.8% last month, the government said Thursday. Economists polled by Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal had forecast a 6.1% increase.Adding to the market's optimism, weekly jobless benefit claims fell to a pandemic-era low. U.S. unemployment claims sank by 193,000 in the week of April 10, an unusually large decline that likely reflects both an improving economy but also continuing problems in processing applications for jobless benefits.

Citigroup Q1 profit more than trebles as it announces shake-up of consumer business in Asia and EMEACitigroup Inc. shares jumped 3% in premarket trade Thursday, after the bank posted record profit for the first quarter as it released $1.8 billion from its loan loss reserves and announced a shake-up of its Asia and EMEA consumer banking business. The company posted net income of $7.9 billion, or $3.62 as share, for the quarter, more than triple the $2.5 billion, or $1.06 a share, posted in the year-earlier period. Revenue edged down to $19.3 billion from $20.7 billion. The FactSet consensus was for $2.60 in EPS and $18.8 billion of revenue. "It's been a better than expected start to the year, and we are optimistic about the macro environment," Chief Executive Jane Fraser said in a statement. The record net income was driven by a strong performance at the bank's institutional clients group and the big release from loan loss reserves/ And while global consumer banking revenue was down sequentially due to the pandemic, "this is the healthiest we have seen the consumer emerge from a crisis in recent history," she said. Citi is now planning to overhaul its global consumer banking business to focus in areas it has the greatest scale and growth potential. The bank will focus its presence in Asia and EMEA on four centers; Singapore, Hong Kong, the UAE and London. It will close its consumer franchises in 13 centers, namely Australia, Bahrain, China, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Citi had $666 billion of loans at quarter-end, down 8% from a year ago. Deposits stood at $1.3 trillion, up 10%. Shares have gained 18% in the year to date, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 have both gained about 10%.

Stocks close mostly lower with earnings on deck U.S. stocks finished Monday's session modestly lower as investors await the start of first-quarter corporate results and weigh positive news about COVID-19 vaccines against a discouraging spike in cases. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 55 points, 0.2%, to close near 33,746, according to preliminary estimates, while the S&P 500 was virtually unchanged near 4,128. The Nasdaq Composite fell about 50 points, 0.4%, to end near 13,850. Stocks churned to fresh records last week, and traders likely see little catalyst for big bets before earnings season kicks off. Still, some high-profile stocks made big moves Monday: Tesla Inc. shares gained nearly 4% after more analysts boosted their price target, and Uber Technologies Inc. shares jumped 3.1% after the company reported overall gross bookings at their highest monthly level in the company's history in March.

Uber says it saw its highest gross bookings on record in MarchUber Technologies Inc. [s:uber] said Monday morning that its mobility business had its best month in a year in March, while overall gross bookings reached their highest monthly level in the company's history. Uber's mobility business exceeded a $30 billion annualized gross bookings run rate during March, the company's highest monthly total since March 2020. Average daily gross bookings were up 9% on a month-over-month basis within the core mobility business, the company added. Uber's delivery business notched an all-time record for monthly performance by crossing a $52 billion annualized gross bookings run rate, up more than 150% from a year earlier. "As vaccination rates increase in the United States, we are observing that consumer demand for Mobility is recovering faster than driver availability, and consumer demand for Delivery continues to exceed courier availability," Uber said in a filing. The company also disclosed that a historical-claims settlement process with U.K. drivers, who will now be treated as workers, is expected to lead to a "significant accrual" that's likely to reduce reported first-quarter revenue and take rates. These effects will be excluded from Uber's adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Ebitda). Uber shares are up 3% in premarket trading Monday. The shares have gained 5.7% over the past three months as the S&P 500 has risen 8.6%.

U.S. government to study allergic reactions to COVID-19 vaccinesThe National Institutes of Health said Wednesday that it started a assessing allergic reactions to the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines developed by Moderna Inc. and BioNTech SE /Pfizer Inc. . The aim is to understand who is at increased risk, including people with a history of allergic reactions or those who have been diagnosed with a mast cell disorder. (Mast cells are part of the body's immune system. When those cells mutate, it can cause one of several rare disorders.) The Phase 2 clinical trial, which is being funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, will enroll 3,400 adults who fit one of three categories: people who have previously reported a severe allergic reaction to food, insects, or a medication; people who have been diagnosed with a mast cell disorder; or individuals without a history of either. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that anaphylaxis as a result of a COVID-19 vaccine occurs in up to 5 people out of every 1 million who have been vaccinated. These events "almost always" occur within 30 minutes of receiving the shot.

10-year Treasury yield surges above 1.50% after 'awful' debt auctionThe benchmark Treasury note jumped above 1.50% on Thursday afternoon after investors showed tepid demand for $62 billion of 7-year notes. The 10-year note yield climbed 15 basis points to 1.54%. Bond prices move in the opposite direction of yields. Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at the Bleakley Advisory Group, described the 7-year note auction results as "awful," after it tailed by 4.2 basis points, the most in the auction's history. The tail is the gap between the highest yield the Treasury sold in the auction and the yield before the auction began. Analysts have cited the 1.50% level as a key threshold for the bond market that could portend trouble for U.S. equities.

Moderna reports $570 million in revenue for first time driven by sales of COVID-19 vaccineShares of Moderna Inc. gained 2.2% in premarket trading on Thursday after the company reported half a million dollars in sales of its COVID-19 vaccine in the fourth quarter of last year. The company had a loss of $272,000, or 69 cents per share, in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with a loss of $123,000, or 37 cents per share, in the same quarter a year ago. The FactSet consensus was for a loss of 34 cents. It had revenue of $570.7 million in the fourth quarter of last year, up from $14.1 million in the same quarter ago, as its COVID-19 vaccine began to be distributed in several countries around the world, including the U.S. The FactSet consensus was $279 million in revenue for the quarter. The vaccine is the first authorized product in the company's history. Moderna said it plans to produce at least 700 million doses of its vaccine in 2021, up from a previous low-end range estimate of 600 million, with a new goal of making 1.4 billion doses in 2022. The company said it has concluded enrollment in a clinical trial testing the COVID-19 vaccine in teens, and a Phase 2 trial for kids between the ages of 6 months and 11 year olds is also expected to begin in the "near-term." Moderna's stock has rallied 509.4% over the past 12 months, while the broader S&P 500 is up 21.7%.

Marriott shares dip premarket after swing to loss as revenue falls short of estimatesMarriott International Inc. shares slid 1.3% in premarket trade Thursday, after the hotel operator posted a loss and weaker-than-expected revenue for the fourth quarter as the coronavirus pandemic kept travelers away. The company posted a net loss of $164 million, or 50 cents a share, in the quarter, after income of $279 million, or 85 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Adjusted per-share earnings came to 12 cents, matching the FactSet consensus. Revenue fell to $2.172 billion from $5.371 billion, missing the FactSet consensus of $2.408 billion. "With the global pandemic, 2020 was the most challenging year in our 93-year history," said Stephanie Linnartz, group president, consumer operations, technology and emerging businesses, who is co-managing the business after the death of CEO Arne Sorenson earlier this week. "In April, we experienced the sharpest worldwide RevPAR(1) decline on record, down 90 percent year over year with just 12 percent occupancy. Demand around the world improved from this trough at varying rates, with China leading the way. RevPAR in mainland China saw a meaningful rebound through the year and was down less than 10 percent year over year in December." The company is not offering guidance due to the uncertainty created by the pandemic, but expects it will continue to impact its business. Shares have fallen 9% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 17%.

Sorenson had disclosed in May of 2019 that he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and on Feb. 2, said he would be taking time off to allow for more aggressive treatment.

"A visionary leader, Mr. Sorenson put the company on a strong growth trajectory that included the $13-billion acquisition of Starwood Hotels & Resorts." The company said the two executives who were tapped to run the business during Sorenson's treatment, Stephanie Linnartz, group president, consumer operations, technology and emerging businesses, and Tony Capuano, group president, global development, design and operations services, will continue to run it until the board appoints a new CEO, which is expected within one to two weeks.

Pot stocks ETF tumbles 20% and faces its worst daily drop in its history as Cannabis trade flames outOne of the most popular ways to gain exposure to the cannabis industry was facing the worst single-day decline since it was created back in 2015, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF on Thursday was down more than 20% and on track to snap a three-day win streak as it heads to its worst day since inception, Dec. 3 of 2015. Stunningly, the ETF was still nursing an 11% gain for the week and an 81% gain in the year to date, highlighting the nearly unfettered appetite for pot stocks that has gripped the market in recent days. The decline for the popular ETF comes as Cannabis shares were tumbling sharply across the board Thursday, with many of the sector's best performers a day earlier surrendering all those gains. Tilray Inc. , a recent market darling, was last down 42%, while Aphria Inc. , with which it is merging, was down over 30%. Pot stocks have been reignited on bullish bets for positive political developments and a better legal landscape under President Joe Biden. Meanwhile, the broader market was seeing tepid gains, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average was off 0.2%, the S&P 500 index trading flat and the Nasdaq Composite Index gaining a modest 0.3% on the session.
