Financials Slip, Energy Stocks Rally Midday; Trump Rips Into OPEC

Investing.com - Financials ran out of steam midday Tuesday on rising trade tensions after President Donald Trump lashed out at international trade partners for unfair trading practices.

In an address to the United Nations General Assembly, Trump defended his administration's tough stance on trade, vowing that "The United States will not be taken advantage of any longer," and was adamant the U.S. will "no longer tolerate such abuse."

Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), Citigroup (NYSE:C) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) gave up early-day gains, falling to near session lows, keeping gains in the market in check.

The retreat from session highs in bank stocks come even as bond yields held onto the lion share of gains racked up intraday ahead of a widely expected Federal Reserve interest rate hike Wednesday.

Rising Treasury yields are seen as boon for banks, boosting their net interest margin, the difference between the interest income generated by banks and the amount of interest paid out to their lenders.

Elsewhere, energy battled to lift investor sentiment, despite oil prices paring some gains after Trump blasted OPEC, accusing the cartel of ripping off the rest of the world with high energy prices.

Healthcare names, meanwhile, continued to lead the S&P 500 as ABIOMED (NASDAQ:ABMD) rallied about 4.7% amid reports institutional investors increased their holdings in the drug company.

Nomura lifted its holdings in ABIOMED by 1,548% during the second quarter, according to its most recent 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Pot stocks were also in focus as shares of Aleafia Health (V:ALEF) surged 25% after the company was added to the Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences exchange-traded fund.

Stocks - Dow Delivers Triple-Digit Loss Amid Washington Turmoil, Trade Concerns

Investing.com - The Dow posted a triple-digit loss Monday as turmoil in Washington and trade tensions reined in investor appetite for stocks.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell about 0.68%. The S&P 500 fell 0.35%, while the Nasdaq Composite rose 0.08%.

Downward spirals in trade-sensitive sectors like materials and industrials symbolized investor fears Monday about an escalating U.S.-China trade war, which entered a new chapter as a fresh round of tariffs came into effect.

Boeing (NYSE:BA), Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) and 3M (NYSE:MMM), all of which have huge international exposure, fell about 1% each.

The United States' 10% tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods and China's tariffs on $60 billion worth of U.S. goods got underway Monday.

Investor fears on trade were further exacerbated after China hit back at President Donald Trump and his "America First" agenda, which Beijing argued was hurting international trade relationships.

Beyond trade, stocks were also knocked by fresh turmoil in Washington amid conflicting reports concerning the future of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the wake of a report that he considered possibly recording and removing Trump.

The White House late Monday said, however, that Rosenstein and Trump had had an extended conversation to discuss the recent news stories and will be meeting on Thursday.

Stocks fell sharply intraday after Axios said in a report, citing sources with direct knowledge, that Rosenstein had verbally resigned to Chief of Staff John Kelly in anticipation of being fired by Trump.

Still, losses were limited by gains in energy as oil prices surged to four-year highs after major oil producers stood pat on output plans at a key meeting over the weekend, refusing to give in to a recent demand to find a way to lower oil prices from Trump.

On the New York Mercantile Exchange, crude futures for November delivery rose $1.30 to settle at $72.08 a barrel.

In the midst of selling pressure on Wall Street, investors found reason to cheer as ongoing merger activity offered some solace, though there was plenty of ugly to go around as General Electric (NYSE:GE) hit a nine-year low.

Sirius XM (NASDAQ:SIRI) stock closed down 10% after it agreed to buy Pandora in a stock deal valued at $3.5 billion.

Sirius XM's sizable holding of Pandora's preferred stock made the potential acquisition inevitable, though the deal was cheaper and arrived sooner than expected, according to JPMorgan.

GE (NYSE:GE) stock hit a low of $11.60 intraday on concerns about the company's power business.

Top S&P 500 Gainers and Losers Today:

ABIOMED (NASDAQ:ABMD), Edwards Lifesciences (NYSE:EW) and Alexion Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALXN) were among the top S&P 500 gainers for the session.

Michael Kors (NYSE:KORS), Newell Brands (NYSE:NWL) and Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) were among the worst S&P 500 performers of the session.
