Whirlpool shares down 3% after earnings miss, worse-than-expected outlook
Shares of Whirlpool Corp. lost 3% late Monday after the appliances maker reported first-quarter earnings and sales below expectations and said it expects pressure this year from lower sales and increased costs. Whirlpool said it earned $94 million, or $1.30 a share, in the quarter, compared with $153 million, or $2.01 a share, in the year-ago period. Sales rose to $4.91 billion, compared with $4.78 billion a year ago. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected earnings of $2.51 a share on sales of $4.95 billion. Whirlpool said it expects GAAP profit between $12.30 a share to $13.30 a share in 2018, as "favorable product price/mix is expected to be partially offset by lower global revenue growth and increased raw material inflation." The analysts surveyed by FactSet expect 2018 GAAP earnings of $13.68 a share. In the same statement, Whirlpool said it will increase its quarterly divided by 4.5%.

Carvana to sell 6 million shares in follow-on offering, releases preliminary numbers
Shares of Carvana Co. fell nearly 5% late Monday after the company, which operates a platform for buying used cars online, said it wants to sell 6 million shares in a follow-on offer. Additionally, certain stockholders are proposing to sell 4 million shares, and a selling stockholder has granted the underwriters the right to buy up to 1.5 million shares, the company said. Wells Fargo, Citigroup, and Deutsche Bank are the book runners. In a separate press release, Carvana released preliminary results for its first quarter, saying it expects to have sold about 18,450 vehicles, compared with 8,334 sold in the first quarter of 2017. The increase in retail cars sold "was driven in part by increased penetration in existing markets, as well as Carvana's business participating in 56 markets as of March 31, 2018 from 23 markets as of March 31, 2017," the company said in the statement. Net sales and operating revenues are to be about $360 million, compared with $159.1 million for the year-ago period, Carvana said. Analysts polled by FactSet expect about 18,000 vehicles sold and sales around $343 million in the quarter. Carvana shares ended the regular trading session up 2%.

Sanmina shares skyrocket 15% after company beats earnings
Sanmina Corp. shares rose more than 15% late Monday after the electronics maker reported fiscal 2018 second-quarter profit and sales above Wall Street expectations. Sanmina said it earned $24.6 million, or 33 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with $31.7 million, or 41 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Adjusted for one-time items, Sanmina earned $37 million, or 50 cents a share, compared with $59.1 million, or 76 cents a share, a year ago. Sales reached $1.68 billion, matching sales for the same period of fiscal 2017. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected adjusted earnings of 45 cents a share on sales of $1.64 billion.

Dow marks longest losing skid in 7 weeks as government bond yields hover near 3%
The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Monday finished in negative territory for a fourth straight session, marking its longest losing trend since early March, as Wall Street wrestled with rising government bond yields. The Dow closed off about 14 points, or less than 0.1%, at 24,448. The four declines in a row represent the lengthiest downdraft for the blue-chip gauge since a similar period ended March 2, according to FactSet data. The S&P 500 index , meanwhile, closed virtually unchanged at 2,670, while the Nasdaq Composite Index finished the session down 0.3% at 7,128. The advance in U.S. interest rates, notably the 10-year Treasury note yield to near 3% , has come as traders increasingly start to price in four interest-rate hikes in 2018 from the Federal Reserve, rather than the three signaled by policy makers. Higher rates translate into increased borrowing costs for U.S. corporations and the level at around 3% is viewed as a threshold at which bonds can compete with investor appetite for other investments, like stocks, market participants said. In corporate news, shares of Box Inc. surged by nearly 11% after Venture capitalist, Chamath Palihapitiya, said shares of the cloud-storage company had room to run higher and that the company would benefit from advancements in artificial intelligence. Separately, shares of Alcoa Corp slumped 12% as the Treasury Department said it has extended its wind-down period for dealing with Russian company Rusal, a major industrial metals mining company.

PSE&G's plan to replace gas pipes to increase residential bills 2%, add 3,200 jobs
Public Service Electric and Gas Co. said Monday it settled with New Jersey Board of Public Utilities for a $1.875 billion plan to replace gas pipes, which will increase residential customer bills by less than 2%, or about $17 a year. PSE&G said the five-year plan, which will enable the utility to replace 875 million of aging cast iron and unprotected steel gas pipes, is expected to create about 3,200 jobs. The company said the steel pipes will be replaced with plastic piping, which are less likely to leak and release methane gas. "Since 2009, residential gas heating bills are down about 50 percent because of the lower cost of natural gas supply," PSE&G said in a statement. "Continued low gas prices make this the ideal time to accelerate this work." PSE&G's stock, which was still inactive in premarket trade, has lost 3.9% year to date, while the SPDR Utilities Select Sector ETF has lost 4.5% and the S&P 500 has eased 0.1%.
