12:46 EDTROVI, MSFT, BODY, LF, WRC, DLB, CF, SWN, CFN, LNKD, AIGOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday following the disappointing non-farm payrolls report. Stock futures weakened after the worse than expected data, leading to a sharply lower open for the broader market. Earlier in the week the averages had hit fresh recovery highs on positive ISM data but investor’s confidence was clearly shaken by the weak employment numbers. The Nasdaq continues to be the weakest index, down more than 2% for the session... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., employers added fewer workers than forecast in April and the jobless rate unexpectedly declined as people left the labor force. The Labor Department said 115,000 jobs were added, the smallest gain in six months, missing analysts' calls 160,000 additions. The unemployment rate, however, fell to 8.1%... COMPANY NEWS: Insurer American International Group (AIG) reported earnings that beat estimates but its stock slid almost 4% during today's session after rising fairly steadily during the past week. Among other companies reporting earnings, advancers included LinkedIn (LNKD) and CareFusion (CFN); decliners included Southwestern Energy (SWN), Warnaco (WRC) and CF Industries (CF)... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Dolby Labs (DLB), up 19%, after its earnings beat consensus and it announced a new partnership with Microsoft (MSFT), and LeapFrog (LF), up 15%, after its quarterly losses were not as steep as expected and its guidance exceeded expectations. Noteworthy losers included Body Central (BODY), down 44%, after downgrades from at least three firms following its results and guidance, and Rovi (ROVI), down over 6%, after reporting in line earnings and backing its full year guidance but also announcing the departure of its CFO... INDICES: Near 12:40 pm ET, the Dow was down 179.10, or 1.36%, to 13,027.49; the Nasdaq was down 63.09, or 2.09%, to 2,961.21; and the S&P 500 was down 22.85, or 1.64%, to 1,368.72.
