Stocks Decline on Brexit Vote as Pound Slumps: Markets Wrap
(Bloomberg) -- Stocks fell as uncertainty over Brexit sank the pound after U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson lost a key vote to fast-track legislation. Traders also parsed a flurry of corporate earnings.The S&P 500 Index erased gains as a slide in tech shares outweighed a rally in energy companies. A sell-off in Facebook Inc. and Netflix Inc. helped push the Nasdaq-100 Index down. Boeing Co. climbed on the eve of its results, despite a cut in outlook by S&P Global Ratings. Treasuries and the U.S. dollar rose.In a very volatile session, the pound slid as Johnson’s mission to take the U.K. out of the European Union in nine days’ time was thrown off course. Members of Parliament blocked his plan to rush the Brexit deal into law. Sterling could “see a 2% or so sell-off in a longer-delay scenario,” said Brendan McKenna, a currency strategist at Wells Fargo in New York.“The U.K. is not as large a trading partner as China, but at the same time it does create some additional instability in the trading landscape,” said Peter Jankovskis, Oakbrook Investments LLC’s co-chief investment officer. “The whole Brexit situation entails all of Europe. That’s really where you’re seeing it. It goes beyond just the U.K. to be another potential drag on all of Europe.”In earnings news:After the close of regular trading, Texas Instruments Inc. tumbled on a weaker-than-expected forecast for the current quarter. Snap Inc. reported revenue and user growth that beat analysts’ estimates.Procter & Gamble Co. climbed after raising the high end of its full-year sales forecast.United Technologies Corp. boosted its profit outlook, lifting shares.Harley-Davidson Inc. jumped as earnings beat estimates.McDonald’s Corp.’s home market lost momentum in the latest quarter amid fierce competition. Shares fell.United Parcel Service Inc.’s profit margin expanded, but shares slid on the retirement of Chief Operating Officer Jim Barber.Hasbro Inc. tumbled on weaker-than expected earnings as tariffs weighed on sales growth.Travelers Cos. sank as profit missed estimates.It’s a huge week for earnings, with around one-fifth of S&P 500 members due to report their results. So far the numbers have generally surprised to the upside, reassuring investors that companies are weathering slowing growth and the trade war. All the same, analysts are cutting estimates for next year as the dispute between the world’s biggest economies continues to take a toll.“Earnings are coming in OK,” said Jeff Mills, chief investment officer at Bryn Mawr Trust Co., which manages $15 billion. “But my point of view quiet honestly is that we’re still going to end up trading in this tight-ish range that we’ve been in at least through the end of the year.”Read: The Short-Volatility Trade Is Now So Big It’s Starting to BreakNetflix sank as Verizon Communications Inc. announced a partnership with Walt Disney Co.
