S&P 500 weekly gain best since July 2013
NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — U.S. stocks ended the holiday-shortened week with solid gains, after four straight day of increases on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite. The benchmark index traded sideways on Thursday as investors weighed a mixed bag of earnings results and generally positive economic data. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished the day slightly lower. U.S. markets are closed Friday for the Good Friday holiday. The S&P 500 (SNC:SPX) ended the day 2.54 points, or 0.1%, higher at 1,864.85 and gained 2.7% over the past 4 days. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI:DJIA) closed 16.31 points, or 0.1%, lower at 16,408.54. The blue-chip index gained 2.4% over the past four days, recouping all of the losses from the previous week. The Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQ:COMP) added 9.29 points, or 0.2%, to 4,095.52. (Correction: A bulletin referencing the stock market’s close gave an incorrect day of the week. The bulletin should have said Thursday.)


Canada’s new marijuana laws set stage for growth
For 11 years, Brent Zettl and Prairie Plant Systems Inc. cornered the market for government-approved medical marijuana in Canada.


Now, after a change this month in Canada’s production and distribution laws made it legal for any licensed company to grow and ship medical marijuana to patients, and illegal for patients to grow their own, Zettl finds himself competing with a dozen new entrants in an industry that could be worth as much as $1.2 billion in a decade. Already, it is drawing investments from hedge funds and private-equity firms in the U.S. and Canada.

Unlike the U.S., where a patchwork of laws vary from state to state, Canada’s new pot laws are federally regulated and uniform, making it more palatable to institutional investors, who have already taken notice. While Colorado and Washington have gone further by legalizing recreational marijuana, the Canadian prime minister’s office has said it would not seek to decriminalize the drug.

The 12 companies that have been granted licenses by Health Canada, the government body overseeing the program, are now turning away potential investors, whereas just a year ago they were struggling to get potential backers to return their calls.

“It’s a much different time now than it was a year ago,” says Mark Gobuty, the chief executive of Peace Naturals Project Inc., a medical marijuana company based in Clearview, Ontario. “Before, it was a reputational risk. Today they’re lining up and telling me I’m very tall and handsome.”

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Gold futures closed lower on Thursday at their lowest level in two weeks, with some upbeat U.S. economic data helping to dull the metal’s safe-haven appeal.

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) – U.S. economic activity increased in most of the country as the weather improved, particularly in the snow-ravaged northeast, according to summary of economic conditions released Wednesday. The Beige Book, a collection of anecdotes about the economy, said ten of the 12 Federal Reserve districts saw improvement – mostly of the “modest to moderate” variety – but a decline in activity in the Cleveland and St. Louis regions. This summary fits comfortably with most private-sector economists’ view of the U.S. economy. The Beige Book is based on information collected before April 7.

Stocks rebound after big swings in both directions
Stocks gain for 2nd day in row after Ukraine fears ease
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — U.S. stocks closed higher Tuesday following a choppy session, bouncing back from a sizable drop that came after reports of fighting on the ground in Ukraine.
The main indexes advanced for a second straight day and finished a little under their morning highs, which came as blue chips Coca-Cola Co. and Johnson & Johnson Inc. boosted sentiment with upbeat earnings reports.

The S&P 500 (SNC:SPX) rose 12.37, or 0.7%, to end at 1842.98, with energy and utilities faring best among the index’s 10 sectors. The benchmark pared its year-to-date loss to 0.3%.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI:DJIA) gained 89.32, or 0.6%, to close at 16,262.56. The blue-chip index had been down by as much as 110 points at midday, and it also was up by 99.71 points at its session peak, according to FactSet data.

The Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQ:COMP) tacked on 11.47, or 0.3%, to finish at 4,034.16. Earlier, the Nasdaq fell to an intraday low of 3,946.03, about 12 points shy of being down 10% from its recent intraday high on March 6 — in other words, correction territory.


Nasdaq rides biggest trading rollercoaster in five years
Whipped by volatile internet and biotech stocks, the Nasdaq staged a more than 2 percent rally back from the brink of correction territory Tuesday in the biggest one day turnaround in five years.

At its lowest point Tuesday, the Nasdaq was off 9.7 percent from its March intraday high of 4371 – close to the 10 percent threshold that some traders say marks an official correction. But the market bounced back, and Nasdaq ended the day with an 11 point gain at 4034, about 7.7 percent below its March 6 high.

Some of the very stocks that helped push the Nasdaq to fresh 14-year highs by early March were slammed in early trading Tuesday, adding to losses of more than 20 or 30 percent from their highs. The poster child for momentum—the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF IBB—was down as much as 24 percent from its Feb. 25 high Tuesday but closed in positive territory.

Social media and internet names were also down sharply, with Facebook and both off more than 20 percent from the March high. But Facebook, and others closed higher on the day.

Gold futures drop just over 2% by the close
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Gold futures dropped more than 2% on Tuesday, giving back the previous day’s gains and then some amid overall strength in the U.S. dollar. Reports of escalating tensions in Ukraine failed to drum up any safe-haven support for the metal. “The supply/demand equation is the primary driver with the ancillary issue being the dollar,” said Adam Koos, president of Libertas Wealth Management. “I think investors are ‘bored’ with the Ukraine. It’ll probably take more ruthless news to see a significant reaction that would result in a flee to gold for safety.” June gold (CNS:GCM4) fell $27.20, or 2.1%, to settle at $1,300.30 an ounce on Comex after climbing 0.6% on Monday.

The muted moves came after stocks ended with broad gains on Monday, when an unexpectedly strong rise in March retail sales and consensus-beating results from Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) lifted the trading mood.

More earnings are on tap for Tuesday. Ahead of the open, Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE:KO) is projected to report first-quarter earnings of 44 cents a share, according to a consensus survey by FactSet. Investors are likely to focus on details of Coca-Cola’s new partnership with Keurig Green Mountain Inc. (NASDAQ:GMCR) .

Retail sales sizzle in March
Sales jump 1.1%, biggest gain since September 2012

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — U.S. retail sales rose a strong 1.1% in March, Commerce Department data released Monday revealed, showing the economy is improving after the cold winter.

The firm report, which shows the largest gain for sales since September 2012, adds to the perception that the U.S. economy has taken a turn for the better. But it will take several months to know for sure whether this strong spending can be sustained


Real news in retail sales report is absence of bad news
Bounceback signals the weather really did have a drag in first two months

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Spring has sprung, and wallets are open.


That’s the main takeaway from the sizzling 1.1% pick-up in retail sales during March, and the upward revision to February’s numbers.

It’s really the only takeaway, however.

As the chart shows, the polar vortex’s appearance hurt more than its disappearance helped.

Retail sales growth slowed to a year-over-year rate of 2.5% in the first quarter from 3.8% in the fourth.

What’s that mean? Not a lot, really — it means the economy will probably see another month of catch-up gains, before the real trend in the economy becomes apparent.

The real news is the absence of bad news. The economy’s struggles in January and February really were weather-related, and that’s a relief.

And there are some encouraging signs on the economy. The gains in job openings and the drops in layoffs suggest something more positive on the horizon, since hiring is less impacted by a month or two of rocky weather.

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Sales at U.S. retailers increased 1.1% in March to a seasonally adjusted $433.9 billion, the Commerce Department estimated Monday. This is the largest gain since September 2012. Sales rose an upwardly revised 0.7% in February, compared with previous estimate of a 0.3% gain. Ahead of the report, economists surveyed by MarketWatch expected total sales to rise 0.8%. Excluding the 3.1% rise in motor vehicle sales, retail sales rose 0.7%. Economists had expected ex-auto sales to rise 0.4%. Gains were widespread across sectors. Sales at general merchandise stores had their biggest gain since March 2007.
