12:19 EDTMDRX, JAZZ, BAYRY, DECK, WCRX, SIMO, CRAY, F, PG, MXWL, EXPE, MRK, AMZN, CVH, CERN, SBUX, CVXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, in spite of Spain's ratings being cut by S&P and a U.S. GDP reading that disappointed. Each of the major indices is higher, with the Nasdaq the leader. The averages have moved in a narrow range since the open as market participants digest all the earnings and economic news that was delivered this week. Earnings have come in better than expected, which has led the averages to rebound and stand ready for a positive close for the week. The economic data remains mixed, as housing and labor continue to limp along but consumer confidence is showing an uptick. For now earnings have trumped macro data, leading to a move higher for equities... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., gross domestic product reportedly grew at an annual rate of 2.2% in the first quarter, versus an expected increase of 2.5%. Personal consumption increased 2.9%, versus expectations for an increase of 2.3%. The University of Michigan Consumer Confidence report had a reading of 76.4, versus the expected 75.7. Regarding Europe, S&P cut its credit rating on Spain to BBB+ from A and said its long-term outlook is negative... COMPANY NEWS: Amazon.com (AMZN), Ford (F) and Starbucks (SBUX) all exceeded expectations on the top and bottom lines, but only Amazon was rewarded by investors. Shares of the internet giant advanced more than 14% on the heels of upgrades from Goldman, Merrill Lynch, Nomura and Sun Trust on its strong results... The three Dow components reporting earnings, Chevron (CVX), Merck (MRK) and Procter & Gamble (PG), all declined in spite of the fact that each beat consensus earnings expectations. P&G was the Dow's worst performer, sliding 3.5%, after lowering its outlook for next quarter... Among the many other companies reporting earnings, advancers included Expedia (EXPE), Cray (CRAY) and Cerner (CERN); decliners included Maxwell (MXWL), Silicon Motion (SIMO) and Coventry Health (CVH)... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ), up over 15%, after announcing plans to acquire EUSA Pharma for $650M, and Warner Chilcott (WCRX), up 9%, after the Times of London said that Bayer (BAYRY) may offer $32 per share for the company. Noteworthy losers included Allscripts (MDRX), down 41%, following downgrades by at least eight firms after its earnings and guidance severely missed consensus and the company reported the ouster of its board chairman, three other board members and its CFO, and Deckers Outdoor (DECK), down more than 25%, after lowering its full year sales and profit outlook... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 30.92, or 0.23%, to 13,235.54; the Nasdaq was up 14.12, or 0.46%, to 3,064.73; and the S&P 500 was up 2.31, or 0.17%, to 1,402.29.
