12:18 EDTAAPL, T, ODP, TSLA, IRIS, DHR, GNOM, THLD, GRPNOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday as the United States and China traded complaints to the World Trade Organization. Stock futures, which had been weak in early trading, softened further after the disappointing Empire State manufacturing reading. The futures action led to a lower opening for the broader market and the averages have not been able to mount any semblance of a come back in light, holiday trading... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the New York Fed’s “Empire State” general business conditions index, which measures factory activity in the state, dropped to minus 10.41 from minus 5.85 in August. This knocked the index to its lowest level in over three years, versus economists’ expectations for an improvement to minus 2. Also, China filed a complaint at the World Trade Organization to challenge a new U.S. law on tariffs intended to combat export-promoting subsidies, hours after the U.S. said it would launch a trade complaint against China's support for car exports... COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) announced that its iPhone 5 preorders set a new record by topping 2M phones sold in 24 hours. AT&T (T) echoed Apple's sentiments, saying sales of the new phone over the weekend made it the fastest-selling iPhone yet... Office Depot (ODP) rose over 7% after activist fund Starboard took a 13% stake and said the stock was “deeply undervalued.” This comes after last week's gains, which may have been aided by private equity takeover speculation circling its peer, Staples (SPLS)... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were IRIS International (IRIS), up 45% to $19.47 after Danaher (DHR) agreed to acquire the company for $19.50 per share, and Complete Genomics (GNOM), up 15% to $3.06 following a deal to be purchased by BGI-Shenzhen for $3.15 per share in cash. Also higher were shares of Tesla Motors (TSLA), which rose 5% following a two notch upgrade to an Overweight rating at Morgan Stanley. Among the noteworthy losers was Threshold Pharmaceuticals (THLD), down 19% after the company said new analysis showed one of its cancer drugs did not have a statistically significant impact on overall survival in a trial. Also lower were shares of Groupon (GRPN), down 6% as the stock was added to Evercore's "Conviction Sell" list... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 27.01, or 0.20%, to 13,566.36; the Nasdaq was down 7.15, or 0.22%, to 3,176.80; and the S&P 500 was down 2.43, or 0.17%, to 1,463.34.
