16:33 EDTAAPL, NFLX, GRPN, GOOG, UNXL, AMRN, NXYOn 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... INDICES: The Dow was up 81.09, or 0.62%, to 13,155.13; the Nasdaq was down 11.23, or 0.38%, to 2,978.04; the S&P 500 was up 4.13, or 0.29%, to 1,418.07.

Netflix will require subscribers to pay its most expensive service tier for 4K Ultra HD content, reports Variety.

07:53 EDTGOOGYouTube changes have diffused much of tension with copyright holders, FT says
YouTube, which implemented Content ID in 2007 to help producers manage their rights and generate revenues from copyright-infringing content, has hit $1B in payments to companies that participate in the program and Fred von Lohmann, legal director for copyright at Google, credits the program for diffusing much of the tension the site previously had with copyright holders, reported Financial Times. Via Content ID, copyright owners can “monetize” their content by allowing ads to be sold against it or have the video blocked and taken down and von Lohmann told Financial Times that the "vast majority" choose to monetize.
