Stock Market Today – Mobile TeleSystems (MBT) Lloyds Bank (LYG) Apache Corp (APA) and Emerson (EMR) Report

alt text

(Best Syndication News) European Union frustration over the lack of Greek political cohesion spilled into equity markets on Monday (see stock charts below). The clock is ticking and Greek elected officials need put forth their budget and austerity measures before the next tranche of bailout money is provided.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters that time is running-out while policy makers in Greece are struggling to please their constituents and appease the EU. The situation put downward pressure on equities in Europe and the United States.

Large Cap Stocks

Most of the stocks (99 of 160) in our large-cap index were lower Monday (see the large-cap stock index chart below). Mobile TeleSystems OJSC (ADR) (NYSE:MBT) advanced more than any other constituent, up nearly three percent during the session. The volume of trading was 10 percent above average.

A court decision along with some positive press provided investor optimism for Russia’s largest mobile phone company. In the after-hours, MBT slipped nearly one percent to $17.33. There was a bid of $17.49 on 900 shares and an ask of $17.80 on 500 shares.

Lloyds Banking Group PLC (ADR) (NYSE:LYG) was another winner in our index, up 2.8 percent on average volume. The stock has been up four straight days since the bank released their management update. On Friday the share price jumped nearly six percent.

The S&P financial sector fell 0.48 percent Monday. Meanwhile, the energy sector was the big winner, up 1.11 percent during the session.

The oil and natural gas exploration company, Apache Corporation (NYSE:APA), gained nearly two percent during the trading day. It was announced last week that APA completed their acquisition of an Australian ammonia fertilizer company.

In the after-hours, APA continued to gain, up another 33 cents to $102.25 a share. APA has been higher seven straight days.

Emerson Electric Co. (NYSE:EMR) gained nearly two percent Monday. The consumer technology company’s share price increased in anticipation of their Q1 2012 earnings release and shareholder meeting on Tuesday.

World Markets

Markets in Asia are opening lower on Tuesday after a mostly positive day Monday (see the world market chart below). The Hang Seng index (Hong Kong) slipped 0.23 percent Monday, while the Shanghai composite index (China) and the Nikkei 225 (Japan) added 0.05 percent and 1.10 percent respectively.

Markets in Europe were mostly lower. The FTSE 100 (England) fell 0.15 percent while the CAC 40 (France) and DAX (Germany) slipped 0.66 percent and 0.03 percent respectively. The Athens Greece Composite index was one of the few gainers.

All three major indexes in the United States suffered from the lack of progress in Europe. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), the NASDAQ and the S&P 500 were all lower.
