Shares of FleetCor Technologies Inc. sank 2.1% in morning trading Thursday, after the company business payments services company disclosed that negotiations with the Federal Trade Commission to resolve claims relating to its U.S. direct fuel card business "are at an impasse." The stock was the biggest decliner among the SPDR Technology Select Sector ETF's components. The stock has now pulled back 5.8% since closing at a record of $308.42 on Dec. 2. "The impasse is primarily related to what FleetCor believes are unreasonable demands for redress made by the FTC," the company said in a statement. "FleetCor continues to believe that the FTC's claims are without merit and these matters are not and will not be material to the financial performance of FleetCor." The company also announced Thursday a $500 million accelerated share repurchase (ASR) program with Bank of America. Based on current share prices, the ASR would represent about 1.72 million shares, or about 2.0% of the shares outstanding. The stock has run up 56.4% year to date, while the technology ETF has rallied 45.6% and the S&P 500 has advanced 27.5%.
