07:35 EDTSONSonoco reports Q2 EPS 63c, consensus 66c
Reports Q2 revenue $1.25B, consensus $1.26B. The company said, "Our balanced portfolio of businesses achieved record quarterly consolidated sales and gross profits and grew base earnings 7 percent over the prior year quarter, hitting an all time best for a second quarter. However, we were somewhat disappointed that base earnings only reached the low end of our guidance as strong performances in our Paper and Industrial Converted Products and Display and Packaging segments were partially offset by lower than expected results in our Consumer Packaging and Protective Solutions segments. Overall in the quarter, the Company benefitted from improvements to manufacturing productivity, a favorable price/cost relationship, lower pension expense and acquisitions. Partially offsetting these gains were higher labor, maintenance and other operating costs while volume was virtually flat"."

16:22 EDTSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher today, but were still lower for the week, as concerns in Europe have come back to the forefront of investors' minds. Today's modest bounce was not enough to make up for the declines seen in three of the other four sessions earlier in the week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the June federal budget statement showed a surplus of $70.5B for the month, compared to analysts' forecast for a $79B surplus. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Wells Fargo (WFC) slipped 32c, or 0.62%, to $51.49 after the largest mortgage lender in the U.S. posted earnings of $1.01 a share that matched analysts' consensus forecast. Wells did note that its credit performance continued to improve in Q2 and CEO John Stumpf said he is "optimistic about the future" for the bank... Lorillard (LO) advanced $2.92, or 4.63%, to $66.01, while Reynolds American fell 51c, or 0.82%, to $61.75, after the two cigarette makers confirmed that they are holding talks about a possible merger, as has been speculated by various media reports in recent weeks... In another update to an ongoing M&A story, Japan's Nikkei reported that Sprint's (S) corporate parent, Softbank (SFTBF), has reached an agreement to acquire T-Mobile (TMUS) from Deutsche Telecom (DTEGY), clearing the way for the long-speculated merger between the third and fourth largest wireless carriers in the U.S. Following the new story, Sprint shares finished the day up 30c, or 3.64%, to $8.55, while T-Mobile rose 62c, or 1.89%, to $33.50. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Ruckus Wireless (RKUS), which advanced 87c, or 7.9%, to $11.88 after the FCC announced that it would allocate new funds to subsidize the launch of WiFi networks in schools and libraries. Also higher was Amazon.com (AMZN), which climbed $18.28, or 5.57%, to $346.20 after consulting firm ChannelAdvisor (ECOM) reported that the company's same-store sales growth had accelerated significantly in June compared with May. Among the noteworthy losers was Rent-A-Center (RCII), which dropped $3.18, or 10.94%, to $25.88 after the company warned that its revenue and earnings for Q2 will not meet expectations. Also lower were shares of industrial and construction supply retailer Fastenal (FAST), which fell $2.00, or 4.16%, to $46.15 after its Q2 revenue missed analysts' consensus view and the company reported plans to close 45 stores. INDEXES: The Dow was up 28.74, or 0.17%, to 16,943.81, the Nasdaq was up 19.29, or 0.44%, to 4,415.49, and the S&P 500 was up 2.83, or 0.14%, to 1,967.51.
