12:11 EDTAZNOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed and little changed at midday, amid new rules from the Obama administration on tax inversions and manufacturing data from around the globe. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA's home price index rose 0.1% in July to 212.7, missing expectations for a rise of 0.5%. Markit's preliminary manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for September came in at 57.9, slightly below the consensus forecast for a 58.0 reading. The Richmond Fed manufacturing index for September rose to 14, beating expectations for it to have dropped two points to 10. In China, HSBC's flash manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 50.5 from a final reading of 50.2 in August, better than expectations. In Europe, Markit's composite flash PMI for the eurozone dipped to a nine-month low of 52.3, missing expectations for it to hold steady at the 52.5 seen in August. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of several companies, including a number in the pharmaceutical industry, are lower in early trading after the Treasury Department announced new regulations yesterday night that aim to make it tougher for U.S. companies to lower their tax burdens via mergers with foreign companies, otherwise known as "inversions." Among the stocks that moved lower after the new rules were announced was Astrazeneca (AZN), which had previously been a target of Pfizer (PFE) and fell about 4% near midday. Also lower were shares of both Shire (SHPG), which fell 2%, and Abbvie (ABBV), which dropped 1.6%, as the two have previously agreed to merge in a tax inversion deal. Medtronic (MDT) and Covidien (COV), which similarly agreed to an inversion merger, were down 3.3% and 2.7%, respectively. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Salix Pharmaceuticals (SLXP), which rose more than 5% after The Wall Street Journal reported that Allergan (AGN) is in advanced talks on a deal to buy the company. Shares of Allergan were also up nearly 3% near midday, as the Journal also reported that Allergan rejected a recent buyout offer from Actavis (ACT). Among the noteworthy losers was Ascena Retail (ASNA), which dropped 16% after the apparel retailer's fourth quarter results and fiscal 2015 profit outlook trailed analysts' consensus estimates. Also lower following its own earnings report was auto retailer CarMax (KMX), which fell over 9%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 32.91, or 0.19%, to 17,139.77, the Nasdaq was up 2.90, or 0.06%, to 4,530.59, and the S&P 500 was down 2.29, or 0.11%, to 1,992.00.
