16:20 EDTCNCOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks began Tuesday in positive territory, once again trading in tandem with oil prices. The Dow led today's gains thanks in part to earnings reports from 3M (MMM), Proctor & Gamble (PG) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), though the Nasdaq struggled early in the day. Following a better than expected reading on consumer confidence and a rip in oil prices, stocks continued to pile on gains in the afternoon, with the major indexes all going out near their highs. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index rose 5.8% from the prior year in November, topping expectations for a 5.7% year-over-year increase. The separate FHFA house price index showed a monthly gain of 0.5% in November, matching the consensus forecast. Markit's services PMI for January came in at 53.7, missing the 54.0 forecast. The preliminary reading of the Conference Board's consumer confidence index for January came in at 98.1, topping the 96.5 reading that was expected. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei index fell 2.35% while China's Shanghai composite slid 6.4%. COMPANY NEWS: Earnings season accelerated Tuesday as major members of the bluechip Dow Jones Industrial Average posted results before the opening bell. 3M lead the pack with a gain of 5.16% to $144.79, while Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble and DuPont (DD) added 4.86%, 2.55% and 0.89%, respectively, following their reports... AIG (AIG) provided its much-anticipated strategy update, committing to return at least $25B to shareholders over the next two years and announcing the sale of AIG Advisor Group to Lightyear Capital and PSP Investments. The company, under ongoing pressure from activist investors including Carl Icahn, also said it will publicly offer a portion of its United Guaranty unit, though it expressly rejected a full company breakup. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Terex (TEX), which surged 36.5% to $20.48 after receiving a $30 per share acquisition offer from China's Zoomlion. Terex peers Manitowoc (MTW), Joy Global (JOY) and Oshkosh (OSK) also saw respective gains of 16%, 9.5% and 5.5% after the news. In other M&A news, FirstMerit (FMER) jumped 18.35% after a merger agreement with Huntington Bancshares (HBAN). Also higher was Weight Watchers (WTW), which rose nearly 20% to $13.32 after noted shareholder and partner Oprah Winfrey tweeted a video detailing her progress and weight loss using the company's program. In addition, Sprint (S) soared 18.65% to $2.99 after reporting losses for the quarter that were not as steep as expected and raising its fiscal year EBITDA forecast. Among the noteworthy losers was Leidos (LDOS), which declined 9% to $48.83 after reaching an agreement with Lockheed Martin (LMT) to combine with the company's realigned Information Systems & Global Solutions unit in a Reverse Morris Trust transaction. Also lower was Centene (CNC), which lost 2.26% to $59.99 after revealing it has potentially misplaced six hard drives containing personal data on nearly 1M individuals. Meanwhile, Polaris (PII) dipped 9.15% to $72.99 after its fourth quarter report. INDEXES: The Dow rose 282.01, or 1.78%, to 16,167.23, the Nasdaq gained 49.18, or 1.09%, to 4,567.67, and the S&P 500 advanced 26.55, or 1.41%, to 1,903.63.
