13:04 EDTADTN, TITN, KMX, FAST, BIDU, FNSR, CIEN, HMA, BRLIOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday following the unexpected early release of the minutes from the Fed's last rate setting meeting in March. The move higher has pushed the S&P above its all-time closing high, which was established last week, and has seen it set a new all-time intraday record as well. In addition to the Fed minutes, the President unveiled a budget proposal that calls for tough entitlement cuts, but those come paired with increased revenues, and China unexpectedly reported a trade deficit caused by higher than expected imports... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Federal Reserve decided to release the minutes from it last Federal Open Market Committee meeting at 9:00 am ET, which was five hours earlier than scheduled, because they were leaked yesterday to trade groups and some members of Congress. The minutes showed continued discussion over the costs and benefits of the Fed's bond-buying program, with several members saying it would "probably be appropriate to slow purchases later in the year and to stop them by year-end." However, many on the Street noted that the minutes were for a meeting that occurred prior to last Friday's disappointing monthly jobs report. Also, President Obama sent a $3.77T spending plan to Congress in a bid to revive deficit-reduction talks. In China, a rare trade deficit of $880M was reported for March, as imports surged 14.1% from a year earlier, outpacing a 10% rise in exports. Also of note, the World Trade Organization slashed its forecast for global trade growth in 2013 to 3.3% from its prior call for 4.5% growth, and S&P revised its outlook on Cyprus to Stable from Negative... COMPANY NEWS: Earnings season picked up a little bit of steam, with reports from ADTRAN (ADTN) and CarMax (KMX) sending their shares higher, while Titan Machinery (TITN) and Fastenal (FAST) declined following their quarterly results announcements... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Baidu (BIDU), which rose over 6% following an upgrade to Buy from Hold at 86 Research. Also trading higher were a number of ADTRAN's peers, including Finisar (FNSR), up nearly 7%, and Ciena (CIEN), up about 6%, following the telecommunication equipment provider's better than expected report. Among the noteworthy losers were Health Management Associates (HMA), which fell 17% after its preliminary view of its quarterly results fell short of expectations, and Bio-Reference Labs (BRLI), which slid 7% in an apparent delayed reaction to a "whistleblower" suit filed against it last week but widely circulated today... INDICES: Near 1 pm ET, the Dow was up 147.54, or 1.01%, to 14,821.00; the Nasdaq was up 58.03, or 1.79%, to 3,295.89; and the S&P 500 was up 19.43, or 1.24%, to 1,588.04.

16:22 EDTFASTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher today, but were still lower for the week, as concerns in Europe have come back to the forefront of investors' minds. Today's modest bounce was not enough to make up for the declines seen in three of the other four sessions earlier in the week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the June federal budget statement showed a surplus of $70.5B for the month, compared to analysts' forecast for a $79B surplus. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Wells Fargo (WFC) slipped 32c, or 0.62%, to $51.49 after the largest mortgage lender in the U.S. posted earnings of $1.01 a share that matched analysts' consensus forecast. Wells did note that its credit performance continued to improve in Q2 and CEO John Stumpf said he is "optimistic about the future" for the bank... Lorillard (LO) advanced $2.92, or 4.63%, to $66.01, while Reynolds American fell 51c, or 0.82%, to $61.75, after the two cigarette makers confirmed that they are holding talks about a possible merger, as has been speculated by various media reports in recent weeks... In another update to an ongoing M&A story, Japan's Nikkei reported that Sprint's (S) corporate parent, Softbank (SFTBF), has reached an agreement to acquire T-Mobile (TMUS) from Deutsche Telecom (DTEGY), clearing the way for the long-speculated merger between the third and fourth largest wireless carriers in the U.S. Following the new story, Sprint shares finished the day up 30c, or 3.64%, to $8.55, while T-Mobile rose 62c, or 1.89%, to $33.50. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Ruckus Wireless (RKUS), which advanced 87c, or 7.9%, to $11.88 after the FCC announced that it would allocate new funds to subsidize the launch of WiFi networks in schools and libraries. Also higher was Amazon.com (AMZN), which climbed $18.28, or 5.57%, to $346.20 after consulting firm ChannelAdvisor (ECOM) reported that the company's same-store sales growth had accelerated significantly in June compared with May. Among the noteworthy losers was Rent-A-Center (RCII), which dropped $3.18, or 10.94%, to $25.88 after the company warned that its revenue and earnings for Q2 will not meet expectations. Also lower were shares of industrial and construction supply retailer Fastenal (FAST), which fell $2.00, or 4.16%, to $46.15 after its Q2 revenue missed analysts' consensus view and the company reported plans to close 45 stores. INDEXES: The Dow was up 28.74, or 0.17%, to 16,943.81, the Nasdaq was up 19.29, or 0.44%, to 4,415.49, and the S&P 500 was up 2.83, or 0.14%, to 1,967.51.
