Economists argue the reaction is likely a result of a deal already being priced in after lengthy negotiations between Iran and world powers. Former Sallie Mae unit Navient (NAVI) fell after issuing a warning for its second-quarter results. The revision was primarily due to poor performance in its private-loan portfolio.
