StockCall.com Provides Stock Research on American Express Co., BGC Partners Inc., Knight Capital Group Inc., East West Bancorp Inc., and Protective Life Corp.

New York City, New York -- (June 06, 2013)

The U.S. equity market tumbled on Wednesday, June 5, 2013, as ongoing concerns over the longevity of Federal Reserve’s bond buying program continued to weigh down sentiment. Yesterday, the ADP reported that the private sector in the U.S. added just 135,000 jobs in May, well below expectations. The data suggested the labor market recovery is still in the early stages, and therefore the Feds might continue with its bond buying program. However, investors are cautious as they await the all-important non-farm payrolls data which is scheduled to be released later this week. If the non-farm payrolls data points to weakness in the labor market, the Feds will likely continue with its ultra-loose monetary policy measures. The financial sector was one of the worst performers in the S&P 500 on Wednesday with major movers in the sector including American Express Company (NYSE: AXP), BGC Partners Inc. (NASDAQ: BGCP), Knight Capital Group Inc. (NYSE: KCG), East West Bancorp Inc. (NASDAQ: EWBC), and Protective Life Corp. (NYSE: PL).
