16:43 EDTRSH, SYMM, TRV, NUS, UTX, NFLX, COH, MSCC, DD, AAPLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after the delayed jobs report showed employers added 148,000 jobs in September. The worse-than-expected jobs number may have given investors reason to believe the Federal Reserve will not look to taper its pace of asset purchases until next year. Today's advance pushed the S&P 500 to another all-time closing high. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The Labor Department's previously delayed employment report for September showed the economy added 148,000 jobs in September, well below analysts' forecast for 185,000. The unemployment rate, however, dipped to 7.2% from 7.3%. The Richmond Fed's manufacturing index inched up to 1 in October from a 0 reading in the prior month. Construction spending rose 0.6% in August, beating expectations for it to have grown 0.4% during the month. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) announced a number of new products at a company event in California this afternoon, including a new line of iPads and new MacBook Pro laptops. The company announced that its flagship iPad model will come in a thinner form factor and will be called iPad Air, and its iPad mini will now be available with its high-definition Retina display. Apple announced new MacBook Pro laptops, a new Mac Pro computer tower, and a new desktop operating system, OS X Mavericks, which will be available today via a free download for existing users. Shares of Apple, however, were slightly lower with investors perhaps "selling the news," closing down $1.53, or 0.29%, at $519.83... Internet streaming video service Netflix (NFLX) last night reported stronger than expected quarterly results, sending its shares higher in after-hours and pre-market trading, but all of these gains were forfeited during today's trade, with the stock eventually closing down $31.87, or 9.15%, at $322.52... Three Dow members, including DuPont (DD), Travelers (TRV), and United Technologies (UTX), were among the companies reporting before today's open or after last night's close. All three reported headline earnings that beat consensus, though only DuPont advanced following its report. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Symmetricom (SYMM), up $2.44, or 51.15%, to $7.21 after the company agreed to be acquired by Microsemi (MSCC) for $7.18 per share. Shares of Microsemi also advanced, rising 60c, or 2.35%, to $26.16 following the news. Also higher was Nu Skin (NUS), up $8.63, or 8.4%, to $111.33 after reporting earnings that beat estimates and raising its long-term sales target to $10B per year from $5B. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were electronics retailer RadioShack (RSH), down 63c, or 17.9%, to $2.89, and luxury handbag maker Coach (COH), which fell $4.08, or 7.53%, to $50.10. INDEXES: The Dow was up 75.46, or 0.49%, to 15,467.66; the Nasdaq was up 9.52, or 0.24%, to 3,929.57; and the S&P 500 was up 10.01, or 0.57%, to 1,754.67.
