MiMedx shares halted down 23% as company says to probe its own accounting
Biotech MiMedx Group Inc.'s shares were halted in premarket trade after falling 23%, for news that the company is delaying the release of fourth-quarter and full-year 2017 earnings to conduct an accounting review. The audit committee has hired legal and accounting advisers to conduct an internal investigation of allegations relating to sales and distribution practices. Executives are reviewing the accounting treatment of certain distributor contracts, among other items. "The company believes, based on information available to date, that the outcome of such investigation should not have a material impact on revenue guidance for 2018," said a statement. The company had about $33 million in cash and cash equivalents at year-end and has no debt. Shares have gained 75% in the last 12 months through Friday, while the S&P 500 has gained 16%.

Rite Aid shares rose were up about 25 percent at $2.66 in premarket trading. Depending on whether Rite Aid shareholders chose to be paid in cash and Albertsons stock or only stock, the deal values Rite Aid at between $1.30 and $2.65 per share, Evercore ISI analyst Ross Muken said.

Walmart's stock exacts 60-point toll from Dow industrials in early trade
The Dow Jones Industrial Average was being dragged lower by a pullback in shares of Walmart Inc. Shares of Walmart were down 9.1%, or $9.36, at $95.50, putting the retailing giant in position to mark its worst daily percentage decline since Oct. 14, 2015, according to FactSet data. That decline was weighing mightily on the Dow, exacting a more than 60-point toll. A $1 swing in any one of the Dow's 30 components equating to a 6.83-point move. Walmart Inc.'s share stumble comes after its fourth-quarter adjusted earnings a share were weaker than forecast. Nearly all of the Dow's early decline was due to Walmart's fall. The lion's share of the Dow's 132-point drop, or 0.5%, at 25,089, was tied to Walmart. The S&P 500 index retreated 0.2% at 2,726, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was up 0.2% at 7,251, bucking the market's drift lower. All three equity benchmarks pared opening losses.

China ETFs suffer their biggest one-day drop since June 2016
Two widely used exchange-traded funds that track China's equity market tumbled on Wednesday as liquidity concerns over the country's stock market continued to grow. The iShares China Large-Cap ETF fell 4.6% on heavy volume. More than 43 million shares traded hands, significantly higher than the fund's 18.5 million 30-day average, according to FactSet data. Another fund, the broader iShares MSCI China ETF , which doesn't limit its holdings to large-capitalization stocks, fell 3.8%. Roughly 3.8 million shares traded, compared with its 30-day average of 2.5 million. For both funds, the day's losses represented their biggest one-day percentage decline since June 2016, when equities around the world sold off in the wake of the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union. Despite the losses on the day, the large-cap fund remains up 4.8% thus far this year, while the broader ETF is up 2.6%. The losses came after China's central bank took no action in money markets for a 10th straight day Wednesday. The lack of fresh funds usually forces highly leveraged funds to sell stocks to stay within regulatory limits on liquidity, analysts said. Similarly, the iShares MSCI Hong Kong ETF fell 2.2% on Wednesday and turned lower for the year. The S&P 500 fell 0.5% on Wednesday and is up 0.7% on the year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dipped 0.1%.
