Stocks Churn Amid Big Sector Swings; Qualcomm, UnitedHealth, Netflix, Union Pacific Are Key Weekly Movers

The stock market churned near record highs with big sector moves. A Qualcomm-Apple settlement sent Qualcomm stock soaring, turbocharging a chip rally. UnitedHealth (UNH) warned on "Medicare for All," spurring a wipeout of the entire medical sector. The Sprint-T-Mobile merger faces regulator objections. Netflix earnings topped, but subscriber guidance was light. Rail stocks rallied on earnings, with Union Pacific (UNP) clearing a buy point. Bank earnings were generally positive. Tech unicorns Pinterest (PINS) and Zoom (ZM) jumped in their debuts after pricing above range.XStock Indexes Steady, Sectors SwingThe Dow Jones rose modestly for the week while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq were little changed, but that belied big sector moves. Qualcomm (QCOM) and Intel (INTC) were among the big chip winners. Those two stocks, and Apple (AAPL), helped push the big-cap Nasdaq 100 to a record high intraday Wednesday. Medical stocks plunged on single-payer fears. Sprint (S) and T-Mobile US (TMUS) retreated on reports that the Justice Department was likely to oppose their merger. Software stocks fell on early earnings. Rail stocks led a transports rally.Health Care Stocks Dive On 'Medicare For All'UnitedHealth (UNH), the nation's largest insurer, easily beat Q1 estimates. But Wall Street focused on CEO David Wichmann, who warned that Democrats' "Medicare for All" plans would bring "wholesale disruption of American healthcare." UnitedHealth stock tumbled to the lowest level in more than a year. Other health insurers and hospitals also took a big haircut. The entire medical sector plunged, including drugmakers, biotechs, medical products makers and more.UnitedHealth earnings grew 23% to $3.73 a share, as revenue climbed 9% to $60.31 billion. The Dow giant's model of combining managed care with an expanding health services empire, continues to prove itself, analysts said.Netflix Subscriber Forecast DisappointsInternet television network added 9.6 million subscribers in Q1, beating views, but expect a gain of just 5 million for the current Q2. Analysts cited the impact of Netflix's recent price increases and the weaker second-quarter content slate for the conservative guidance. Netflix (NFLX) ended the first quarter with 148.9 million streaming video subscribers worldwide. Q1 earnings rose 19% to 76 cents a share as revenue grew 22% to $4.52 billion. Analysts expected EPS of 57 cents on sales of $4.5 billion. Netflix stock rose modestly amid concerns about the looming Disney (DIS) streaming service Disney+.Apple, Qualcomm Bury HatchetApple (AAPL) and wireless-chip leader Qualcomm (QCOM) settled their long-running dispute over patent licensing terms and royalty rates, with a six-year license deal and multiyear chip supply agreement. The deal puts Apple back on track to release a 5G iPhone in 2020. Apple had shifted its smartphone modem business to Intel (INTC). But with Apple and Qualcomm back on good terms, Intel announced that it is exiting the 5G smartphone modem business and reevaluating its entire 4G and 5G modem business for PCs, Internet of Things and other devices. Qualcomm stock surged 40%, while Intel stock climbed 3.7%, both hitting their best levels since 2000.Chip Firms ASML, TSMC Guide LowerSemiconductor-equipment maker ASML (ASML) and chip foundry Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM) reported first-quarter results that beat or met expectations, but both firms guided Wall Street lower for the current quarter. ASML guided to earnings per share of $1.07 on sales of $2.88 billion in the June quarter. Analysts were looking for $1.12 in EPS on sales of $3.07 billion in Q2. Taiwan Semi guided to Q2 sales of $7.6 billion, missing views for $7.83 billion, and said it believes it has passed the bottom of the cycle in its business. ASML said it sees accelerating growth through 2019, helped by trends such as 5G wireless communications and data centers. But Taiwan Semi stock broke out Thursday, while ASML rose modestly for the week.Pinterest, Zoom IPOs Soar In DebutTech unicorns Pinterest (PINS) and Zoom Video (ZM) jumped in Thursday's stock trading debut after their IPOs priced high. Profitable videoconference company Zoom priced at 36 a share, above an upwardly revised range of 33 to 35, raising $752 million. Zoom stock soared 72% in its debut. Pinterest jumped 28%. The online scrapbook site raised $1.4 billion, pricing shares at 19, above its estimated 15-17 range.Sprint/T-Mobile Merger In TroubleSprint (S) and T-Mobile US (TMUS) may propose a last-ditch structural remedy to salvage their proposed merger amid reports that the Justice Department will block the merger. Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T) fell modestly. New Street Research analyst Blair Levin says T-Mobile and Sprint could propose merging their wireless networks into a joint venture or "wholesale entity." If the merger falls through, debt-laden Sprint would be in trouble. Sprint stock and T-Mobile stock fell sharply Wednesday, though T-Mobile closed slightly positive for the week.Banks Temper, Reaffirm OptimismGoldman Sachs (GS), Citigroup (C), Bank of America (BAC) and Morgan Stanley (MS) reported first-quarter earnings that painted a murkier picture of the global economy than JPMorgan Chase, which last week said the U.S. had rebounded from the market "hangover" in Q4. Goldman described a "muted" start to the year. Bank of America warned of slowing net interest income. Still, Citigroup cited global momentum. Morgan Stanley's results also beat, and the company said that Q2 deal making and trading had improved.Railroad Efficiency Push Pays OffCSX (CSX), Union Pacific (UNP) and Kansas City Southern (KSU) all reported better-than-expected earnings growth, as industry shift to scheduled railroading boosts operating efficiency. Kansas City Southern and CSX leveraged single-digit revenue gains, while Union Pacific revenue unexpectedly dipped. CSX jumped to a new high. Union Pacific stock and Kansas City Southern cleared buy points.Atlassian, Check Point Tumble After EarningsAtlassian (TEAM) reported fiscal Q3 earnings soared 133%, accelerating yet again, with revenue up 38% to $309.3 million. But billings growth for the enterprise software maker was below views. For the current Q4, Atlassian guided low on profit guidance. It expects lower operating margins due to increased R&D hiring and investments in cloud computing products. Cybersecurity firm Check Point Software Technologies (CHKP) reported adjusted first-quarter earnings of $1.32 a share, up two cents from a year ago, with revenue rising 4% to $472 million, just beating views. The firewall maker competes with Palo Alto Networks (PANW), Fortinet (FTNT) and Cisco (CSCO). Atlassian and Check Point shares sold off sharply Thursday, with several cybersecurity and other software names retreating.Marijuana M&A, IPO, EarningsCanadian cannabis producer Canopy Growth (CGC) won the right to buy U.S. pot company Acreage Holdings for $3.4 billion, but only after the U.S. government legalizes marijuana production and sales. Canopy stock popped Thursday on the agreement. Aphria (APHA), a Canadian cannabis producer, plunged for the week after quarterly results missed some estimates and margins shrank. Shortages weighed on sales, as did hang-ups related to packaging and distribution, and a change in the way it grows cannabis. Aphria also took a 50 million (CAD) write-down related to acquisitions two short-sellers alleged amounted to self-dealing. Meanwhile, U.S.-based Greenlane (GNLN), which distributes vaping products and other accessories to smoke and pot shops, jumped 24% in its debut after its IPO price above its expected range.J&J, Abbott Labs Top Q1 ViewsJohnson & Johnson (JNJ) earnings of $2.10 per share, on an adjusted basis, and $20.02 billion in sales topped the consensus. Fellow medical products giant Abbott Laboratories (ABT) also came in above with adjusted profit of 63 cents per share on $7.54 billion in sales. J&J also boosted its 2019 sales guidance and narrowed its adjusted income outlook, while Abbott kept its full-year earnings outlook.Online Brokers Beat ForecastsCharles Schwab (SCHW), E-Trade Financial (ETFC) and Interactive Brokers (IBKR) all topped quarterly earnings views. Schwab stock fell Monday as trading and asset management revenue declined, but edged higher for the week. Interactive Brokers and E-Trade also rose.News In BriefIonis Pharmaceuticals (IONS) tumbled 13% Wednesday after Novartis (NVS) released fresh data for its spinal muscular atrophy treatment, a potential rival to Spinraza from Ionis and Biogen (BIIB). Further, Roche (RHHBY) reportedly won't offer updated results for its Ionis-partnered Huntington's disease drug at a conference in May.Gaming stock Las Vegas Sands (LVS) rose after reporting better-than-expected earnings Wednesday. The casino stock has been rallying recently on improving results in Macau and hopeful signs about China's economy and China trade talks.United Airlines (UAL) jumped after the carrier beat first-quarter earnings estimates and held to its full-year profit outlook, despite concerns about higher fuel costs and the grounding of the Boeing (BA) 737 Max weighing on profits.IBM (IBM) topped earnings views but revenue missed views. The Dow tech giant said cloud-computing revenue over the past 12 months hit $19.5 billion. Shares fell Wednesday.Honeywell (HON) reported better-than-expected first-quarter earnings and sales Thursday and raised full-year guidance. Shares of the diversified manufacturing firm rose 3.8% Thursday to a record high.Blackstone (BX) will convert into a corporation from a publicly traded partnership structure, effective July 1. The private-equity giant's stock jumped 7.8% Thursday.Credit card giant American Express (AXP) beat on earnings but missed on sales. Analysts also cited concerns about concerns about customer engagement expenses. But shares of the Dow Jones credit card giant rose 1.7% Thursday.Warren Buffett-backed Brazilian payments stock StoneCo (STNE) plunged 24% Thursday after Itau Unibanco (ITUB) announced it will start advancing cash for small- and medium-size merchants without charging interest. Itau's card processor Rede will pay merchants in two days vs. the usual 30 days. PagSeguro (PAGS,) another 2018 Brazilian payments IPO, sold off 9.8%.Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) reported Q1 EPS of $2.61 late Thursday on $973.7 million in sales.

Shares of the robotic surgical systems maker tumbled after Thursday's close.YOU ALSO MIGHT LIKE:Catch The Next Big Winning Stock With MarketSmithBest Growth Stocks To Buy And Watch: See Updates To IBD Stock ListsGet Free IBD Newsletters: Market Prep | Tech Report | How To InvestThe post Stocks Churn Amid Big Sector Swings; Qualcomm, UnitedHealth, Netflix, Union Pacific Are Key Weekly Movers appeared first on Investor's Business Daily.
