16:33 EDTUNXL, NFLX, NXY, GOOG, AAPL, AMRN, GRPNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed on the day, as better than expected jobs numbers sent the averages higher at the open, however a continued selloff in shares of Apple (AAPL), which fell $13.99, or 2.56%, to close at $533.25, weighed on the Nasdaq for the third straight session. The averages saw light trading volume and moved in a narrow range for the second half of the session, with the S&P 500 and Dow maintaining modest gains and closing at their highs.. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the November non-farm payrolls report showed a seasonally adjusted 146,000 jobs were added last month, versus an expected 85,000. The unemployment rate fell to 7.7% from 7.9%, beating expectations for it to remain flat. The Reuters/U of Michigan consumer sentiment reading, expected to slip to 82 from the end-November reading of 82.7, fell more than forecast to 74.5 in the initial look for December. In Europe, Germany's central bank reduced its forecast for the country's GDP growth in 2013 to 0.4% from its earlier call for 1.6% growth. Also, in Greece, the nation's three biggest banks agreed to take part in the country's bond buyback program... COMPANY NEWS: Netflix (NFLX) and CEO Reed Hastings each received a "Wells Notice" from the SEC indicating its intent to recommend to the SEC that it institute a cease and desist proceeding and/or bring a civil injunctive action against Netflix and Hastings for violations of Regulation Fair Disclosure. Hastings responded on Facebook to defend the earlier post that got him scrutinized and contend that he and the company were not acting wrongly... Groupon (GRPN), saw shares run higher over the last two hours of the session, eventually settling up 88c, or 22.97%, to $4.68, and a Bloomberg report attributed the move to speculation that Google (GOOG) may consider buying the company... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Uni-Pixel (UNXL), up $1.49, or 18.04%, to $9.75 after revealing it has entered a multi-million dollar license agreement with a "major PC maker." Among the noteworthy losers were Amarin (AMRN), down $2.26, or 18.91%, to $9.69 after disclosing plans to raise money and hire a sales force, and Nexen (NXY), down $1.65, or 6.56%, to $23.52 after late-day news broke that the Canadian Industry Ministry would make an announcement after the close...

12:24 EDTNFLXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were modestly higher at midday. The averages opened mixed, but very close to the flat line, and have continued to drift slowly higher from that point. There is little to stand in the way of the marketís drift, as the economic calendar is quiet, the earnings season is winding down, and the most closely watched geopolitical situations are currently status quo. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., little of note was on the economic calendar. The Federal Reserve's newly introduced Labor Market Conditions Index was flat at 4 in October. The Fed started updating estimates of the LMCI every month beginning with last month. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Netflix (NFLX) advanced about 1% after xxx President Barack Obama publicly urged the Federal Communications Commission to implement the "strongest possible rules" to protect net neutrality. In response, Verizon (VZ) said it supports the open Internet and continues to believe that the "light-touch regulatory approach in place for the past two decades has been central to the Internetís success," adding that it believes the reclassification Obama called for would "apply 1930s-era utility regulation to the Internet" and be a "radical reversal of course" that would threaten great harm to an open Internet, competition and innovation." A number of Internet Service Providers, including Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), Charter (CHTR) and Cablevision (CVC), moved lower after Obama weighed in on the hot-button issue. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Achillion Pharmaceuticals (ACHN), which rose 22% after the company presented data from the ongoing Phase 2 study of its Hepatitis C virus treatment at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, or AASLD. Also higher was Dean Foods (DF), which rose more than 13% after the dairy products distributorís third quarter results, as well as its fourth quarter and full year profit outlook, surpassed analystsí consensus estimates. Among the noteworthy losers was Rayonier (RYN), which dropped 13% after management determined that there was a material weakness in the company's internal controls, restated certain previously made financial statements, and cut its dividend reflecting expectations of reduced cash available for distribution due to lower expected annual harvest levels. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 18.55, or 0.11%, to 17,592.48, the Nasdaq was up 10.77, or 0.23%, to 4,643.30, and the S&P 500 was up 4.01, or 0.2%, to 2,035.93.
