Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday despite a significant downward revision to the government's estimate of economic growth in the first three months of the year. The market opened slightly higher and has seen little in the way of volatility, mirroring the pattern seen throughout the week. Volume remains light and the market remains locked in a very narrow range, albeit near all-time highs. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Commerce Department estimated that gross domestic product decreased at a 1% annual rate in the first quarter of the year, which is down significantly from the government's first estimate of positive 0.1% growth for the period and below the consensus expectation for a revision to a 0.5% decline. Initial jobless claims dipped 27K to 300K in the week ended May 24 from a revised 327K previously. An index of pending home sales edged up 0.4% to 97.8 in April, which was less than the expected 1% rise. COMPANY NEWS: Last night, Apple (AAPL) confirmed that it has agreed to buy Beats Music, which operates a streaming music service, and Beats Electronics, which makes and sells electronic music products such as headphones and speakers, for $3B. Financial Times first reported on May 8, citing people familiar with the negotiations, that Apple was in talks to acquire Beats. In a note to investors after the confirmation, JPMorgan analyst Rod Hall wrote that the deal "is really about what Apple can do with Beats Music" to revitalize its own iTunes music business. Meanwhile, PiperJaffray analyst Gene Munster wrote that Apple acquired Beats for several reasons, including the opportunity to bring Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre to Apple to work on content. Near noon, Apple rose nearly 1% to trade near $630 per share, while Pandora, which also offers a streaming music service, was fractionally lower. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Hillshire Brands (HSH), which jumped about 17% to trade near $52 per share after the company received an unsolicited takeover offer of $50 per share in cash from Tyson Foods (TSN) that trumped the $45 per share bid announced just two days ago from Pilgrim's Pride (PPC). Also higher was Palo Alto Networks (PANW), which rose 8.5% after the company reported stronger than expected third quarter results and agreed to pay Juniper (JNPR) $175M in cash, stock and warrants as part of a settlement of their patent litigation. Among the noteworthy losers was apparel, footwear and accessory retailer Tilly's (TLYS), which dropped 16% after the company reported a decline in its first quarter same-store sales and gave lower than expected earnings guidance for the new quarter. Also lower in the day after its earnings report was Michael Kors (KORS), which slipped 5% after the shares were downgraded this morning at Avondale to Market Perform from Outperform. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 15.38, or 0.09%, to 16,648.56, the Nasdaq was up 11.86, or 0.28%, to 4,236.94, and the S&P 500 was up 4.12, or 0.22%, to 1,913.90.
