12:30 EDTAA, BTI, GIMO, AVAV, TCS, RAIOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were moderately higher at midday, helped in part by better than expected earnings from Alcoa (AA), solid monthly numbers from the airlines sector, and a bounce from the two day losing streak that had seen the S&P lose 1% and the Nasdaq pullback by more than 2%. The market has been unable to gather any upside momentum and has moved in a narrow range throughout the morning, as investors await the release of the Fed’s FOMC minutes. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee meeting held June 17-18 are scheduled to be released at 2:00 pm ET. In China, the producer-price index declined 1.1% from a year earlier, compared with a consensus forecast for a 1% drop. China's consumer-price index rose 2.3%, below projections for a 2.4% gain. COMPANY NEWS: Alcoa swung to a second-quarter profit of 18c a share on an adjusted basis, beating the consensus estimate of 7c a share, as its revenue also topped expectations. The aluminum producer, whose report is widely considered to mark the start of an earnings season, said its transformation is in "high gear" and that its cost position continues to improve. The stock rose 5% near midday following its report. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was AeroVironment (AVAV), which develops a portfolio of products and services for unmanned aircraft and efficient energy systems. The stock rallied 14% after the company reported better than expected fourth quarter results. Also higher was Reynolds American (RAI), which rose more than 2.5% after the U.K.'s Daily Mail reported that British American Tobacco (BTI), which currently holds a 42% stake in Reynolds, is speculated to be "on the verge" of buying out the remainder of its U.S. peer that it does not already own. Among the noteworthy losers was IT infrastructure technology provider Gigamon (GIMO), which was downgraded by at least five firms and plunged 32% after the company lowered its Q2 revenue guidance, citing challenges closing deals. Also lower following its earnings reports was specialty storage and organizational product retailer The Container Store (TCS), which fell 10%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 36.86, or 0.22%, to 16,943.48, the Nasdaq was up 18.93, or 0.43%, to 4,410.39, and the S&P 500 was up 4.59, or 0.23%, to 1,968.30.

U.S. equity futures are pointing to a higher open, despite the continued slide in oil prices. The price of crude has now broken $45 per barrel after many traders believed the price action during yesterday’s trading suggested the commodity was close to a bottom. Equities are being helped by the solid earnings report from Alcoa, Inc (AA) which kicked off the earnings season last night by beating Wall Street estimates on both the top and bottom line.

The trend for the shares is a shallow bullish one. Ahead of earnings there are a few notable levels to watch. On strong bullish news and outlook, upside levels to note would be at resistance at $16.93 and $17.75, the 52-week high. A breakout above the 52-week high would be bullish, with next resistance at $18.47.
