12:29 EDTCBSOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday, though well off their worst levels. The market opened sharply lower following less than stellar quarterly reports from some of the country’s largest corporations and a number of in-focus "momentum" names such as Netflix (NFLX) and eBay (EBAY). The early drop extended the market’s recent declines and put the averages close to correction territory. The market moved off its lows after a regional Fed president, who'd recently been seen as hawkish, said in an interview that the central bank should consider delaying the end of quantitative easing and that it should be more data driven than time driven. The comments were attributed as the catalyst for a reversal that brought the averages all the way back to positive territory, though the market has once again drifted back into negative ground. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims decreased by 23K to 264K last week to hit their lowest level since April 2000. Industrial production rebounded 1.0% in September, beating expectations for a rise of 0.4% and pushing capacity utilization up to 79.3% from 78.7% previously. The Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index fell 1.8 points to 20.7 in October, which was not as low as the expected 19.9 reading. The NAHB homebuilder sentiment index fell 5 points to 54 in October, versus expectations for it to hold steady at 59. Also of significant note, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard, who is not a voting FOMC member though was quoted recently saying that a rate hike might be appropriate as soon as early next year, reversed course this morning and told Bloomberg in an interview that the Fed should consider delaying an end to its quantitative easing program. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Netflix (NFLX) plunged 22% after the company provided lower than expected Q4 profit guidance and reported lower than expected subscriber data. The move after its earnings report last night also follows Time Warner's (TWX) announcement yesterday of plans for a standalone HBO online service and Piper Jaffray saying it believes CBS (CBS) will similarly launch an over-the-top Showtime offering next year... eBay (EBAY) shares slipped nearly 6% after the company missed revenue expectations for the third quarter and lowered its outlook for fiscal 2014. Following the report, analysts at both RBC Capital and CLSA downgraded the stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Chesapeake Energy (CHK), which rose 17% after the company announced that it sold Marcellus and Utica shale assets to Southwestern Energy (SWN) for $5.375B. Shares of the buyer Southwestern, however, fell 8% after the deal announcement. Also lower was Extreme Networks (EXTR), which dropped almost 19% after cutting its first quarter outlook citing significant delays with its North American deals as well as headwinds in Europe. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 28.46, or 0.18%, to 16,113.28, the Nasdaq was down 16.16, or 0.38%, to 4,199.16, and the S&P 500 was down 2.08, or 0.11%, to 1,860.41.
