    U.S. Equities' Momentum Carries Into Fed Week: Markets Wrap

    U.S. equity benchmarks rose at the start of a week filled with potentially significant catalysts -- from central bank meetings, geopolitical developments and economic data. Financials and consumer stocks also advanced, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average fought to stay positive even as Boeing declined on reports that the U.S. Transportation Department was examining the 737 Max’s design certification.

    Stocks finish slightly higher as Dow picks up fourth straight gain

    Stocks closed on a positive note on Monday to extend last week's broad-based rally even as Boeing's travails dragged on the blue-chip Dow. The S&P 500 rose less than 0.4% to end near 2,833. The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 65 points, or less than 0.3%, to finish near 25,912, based on preliminary numbers. The Nasdaq Composite rose 0.3% to end around 7,714. The Dow notched its fourth straight consecutive gain. The S&P and Nasdaq hit a fresh 52-week high. Major stock-market benchmarks built on last week's rally that lifted the S&P 500 above its long-term resistance level at 2,800. Investors said they would mostly look ahead to the Fed's two-day meeting set to conclude on Wednesday, with expectations for the central bank to lower its forecasts for interest rates. In company news, shares of Boeing Co. were down 2% after The Wall Street Journal said that federal prosecutors and Department of Transportation officials were investigating the development of the firm's 737 Max jetliners.

    Mylan voluntarily recalls two lots of its levoleucovorin injection

    Mylan N.V. said on Monday that it is voluntarily recalling two lots of its levoleucovorin injection due to the discovery of foreign particulates in the drug.

It is also used in combination chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil to treat patients with advanced metastatic colorectal cancer. Mylan said it discovered the presence of copper salts in the levoleucovorin during 12-month stability testing. Such particulates can lead to severe health complications like vasculitis, allergic reactions and pulmonary embolism. The drug maker has not received any reports of adverse events related to the recall and said it notified its distributors and customers by letter. Shares of Mylan have fallen 2.2% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 11.1%.

    Dare Bioscience stock rockets to pace all gainers after positive findings from VVA treatment study

    Shares of Daré Bioscience Inc. rocketed 129% on very heavy volume toward a 13-month high in afternoon trade Monday, after the biopharmaceutical company announced positive findings for the use of its DARE-VVA1 product candidate in treating vulvar and vaginal atrophy (VVA). The stock was the biggest percentage gainer listed on major U.S. exchanges, even though it pared earlier gains of as much as 253%. Volume swelled to 37.8 million shares, compared with the full-day average of about 82,500 shares and enough to make the stock the most active on the Nasdaq exchange. The company said a self-administered vaginal suppository containing tamoxifen administered to four healthy postmenopausal women with VVA showed "significant improvements" in reducing vaginal pH and vaginal dryness, without significant absorption of tamoxifen. "If successful, DARE-VVA1 could be the first and only vaginally administered tamoxifen product approved by the FDA for the treatment of VVA in hormone-receptor positive breast cancer patients," the company said in a statement. The stock has now more than tripled year to date (up 218%), while the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF has climbed 18% and the S&P 500 has gained 13%.

    The Fed may soon let inflation run a little hotter than usual, Goldman says

    The Fed has begun a monthslong review of its policy framework to consider alternative approaches to targeting inflation, and Goldman Sachs believes the central bank will decide to allow overshoots of its inflation goal next year. "If implemented ... this change would decrease the likelihood of further near-term policy tightening and lead to a small and gradual increase in both expected and realized price inflation," says Goldman's equity strategist Ben Snider. Since 2012, the Fed has always been attempting to hit a 2 percent target, but inflation has fallen short through much of the recovery.
