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.

05:51 EDTGOLDRandgold Resources provides update on Loulo-Gounkoto complex
Another record production quarter from its flagship Loulo-Gounkoto complex in Mali has set Randgold Resources up at the halfway mark to achieve its guidance for the year. At the same time, the developing Kibali mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo remained on track to reach its forecast target despite commissioning disruptions. Group gold production of 277,283 ounces for Q2 was down 2% on Q1's record output but 41% ahead of last year's corresponding quarter. Cost per ounce rose by 2% to $701 on the previous quarter but was 12% down on Q2 in 2013. Profit from mining of $162.3M decreased by 5% from the previous quarter but was up 54% on the corresponding quarter in 2013. Loulo-Gounkoto produced 174 052 ounces, up 3% on Q1, and the third quarter in a row that the complex has posted a record production number. In other significant developments, the paste backfill plant at the Yalea underground mine was commissioned, enabling miners to harvest almost 100% of the high grade zones. The complex's energy cost reduction programme continued to evolve with the installation of two more medium speed generators, due for commissioning in the second half of the year, capable of running on less expensive heavy fuel oil.
