12:15 EDTAOL, MSFT, CALL, GOLD, MOH, CNC, ITMNOn The Fly: Mid-Day Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at mid-day, in a delayed reaction to Friday's disappointing jobs report. Investors and analysts continue after the long weekend to try to connect the dots to determine whether this report is a sign of a slow down in the economic recovery or if it indicates a pause. The move today is broad based, as all of the S&P sectors are lower and at one point 99% of all the S&P 500 stocks were lower. The averages have shown virtually no improvement since the open and continue to drift. The lack of economic data today has left investors with nothing new to focus on to move past the jobs report... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, little of note was on the economic calendar, leaving investors to react to the disappointment from the the 120K increase in nonfarm payrolls reported Friday while the equity markets were closed. Internationally, the Nikkei was down and the Hang Seng and the European markets were closed... COMPANY NEWS: AOL (AOL) shares surged over 45% after the company agreed to sell over 800 of its patents to Microsoft (MSFT) for a bit over $1B. Microsoft's stock was down close to 1% near noon following the announcement... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were magicJack (CALL), after it provided guidance above the Street's view and said it will look to increase its stock buyback program, and Randgold (GOLD), after the company said its gold production and 2012 production guidance were not affected by a coup in Mali. Noteworthy losers included Molina Healthcare (MOH) and Centene (CNC), after the state of Ohio did not renew its Medicaid contract with the two companies. Also lower were shares of InterMune (ITMN), following a downgrade to Sector Perform at RBC Capital... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 138.38, or 1.06%, to 12,921.76; the Nasdaq was down 34.41, or 1.12%, to 3,046.09; and the S&P 500 was down 16.86, or 1.21%, to 1,381.22.

10:43 EDTCNC, MOHAppeals court bars subsidies in health care law
A three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down part of President Obama's healthcare law by siding today with plaintiffs who argued that the law barred the government from giving subsidies to people in states that chose not to set up their own insurance marketplaces. The appeals court stated, "Because we conclude that the ACA unambiguously restricts the section 36B subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges 'established by the State,' we reverse the district court and vacate the IRS’s regulation." Twenty-seven states decided against setting up marketplaces, and another nine states partially opted out, according to the Washington Post.
