US stocks ended marginally lower on Thursday, as worries about upcoming corporate earnings reports offset enthusiasm about a trio of soaring Wall Street debuts. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 6.84 points, or 0.04%, to end at 18,105.77; the S&P 500 lost 1.64 points, or 0.08%, to 2,104.99; and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 3.23 points, or 0.06%, to 5,007.79. European markets finished broadly lower on Thursday with growing concerns about Greece's debt situation prompting investors to take some profits after the previous session's 14-year highs. The DAX closed 1.94% lower, France's CAC 40 declined by 0.57% and London's FTSE 100 declined by 0.51%. The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index closed 0.9% lower at 1,635.76 points. Chinese shares rebounded on stimulus hopes a day after gloomy first-quarter economic numbers with the Shanghai composite index rising 2.1% to 4,168.85, while other Asian benchmarks were mixed.
On April 15, 2015, Reuters quoted a local Brazilian newspaper that Petrobras may sell stakes in sub-salt blocks to reduce capital spending amid a massive corruption scam. Subsalt deposits refer to an area in Brazil's Santos and Campos basins where large oil discoveries have been made deep beneath the seafloor under a layer of salt.
Arotech Corporation (Arotech) posted record 2014 revenues, exceeding the $100 million mark for the first time in the Company's history. Revenues for the full year increased 17% YoY to $103.5 million, driven in large part by the Company's acquisition of UEC.
Shares of Vale rose as Brazilian iron ore exports rose to a three-month high, on Tuesday, April 14, 2015. The South American nation, which accounts for approximately 25% of the global market share of iron ore's trade volume, exported 30.8 million tons of iron ore in March 2015, a three-month high.
Alcoa announced last month that it plans to curtail 443,000 MMTPA of alumina refining capacity at Suralco in Suriname. In addition, the Company and the Government of Suriname have agreed to pursue a transaction for a Government-owned entity to acquire the Suralco operations.
SandRidge Energy Inc. stock rose by 8.95% on April 14, 2015, to close at $2.07 as some energy and related stocks got a boost from the rise in oil prices. TheStreet reported that the commodity's price rose due to a forecasted decline in shale output in the U.S., the first monthly decline in over four years and also due to tensions in Yemen, where key oil exporter Saudi Arabia is involved in military operations.
