12:22 EDTEXPROn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session slightly lower despite relatively in-line jobless claims data, as European markets moved down following a rate decision and accompanying commentary from ECB President Mario Draghi. Adding to the modest pressure seen in morning trading may be the fact that oil prices continue to move lower. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 17K to 297K in the week ended November 29, which was nearly in-line with the expectation for 295K first-time claims. Challenger reported announced layoffs fell 15.2K in November to 35.9K. In Europe, the European Central Bank kept its key rates unchanged, as expected. ECB President Mario Draghi said in his accompanying press conference that the latest euro area macroeconomic projections indicate lower inflation, accompanied by weaker real GDP growth and subdued monetary dynamics. Additionally, he stated that early next year the Governing Council will reassess the monetary stimulus achieved, the expansion of the balance sheet and the outlook for price developments. "Should it become necessary to further address risks of too prolonged a period of low inflation, the Governing Council remains unanimous in its commitment to using additional unconventional instruments within its mandate. This would imply altering early next year the size, pace and composition of our measures," Draghi said. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Barnes and Noble (BKS) slid about 10% after the company reported lower than expected second quarter earnings and said it continues to expect both Retail comparable bookstore sales and Retail Core comparable bookstore sales to decline in the low-single digits this fiscal year. Additionally, Barnes & Noble and Microsoft (MSFT) agreed to terminate their commercial agreement and B&N agreed to acquire Microsoft's entire preferred interest in NOOK Media in exchange for $62.4M cash and 2.74M shares of its stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Hawaiian Electric (HE), which jumped 16% after its board approved a plan to spin off ASB Hawaii, the parent company for American Savings Bank, and establish it as an independent publicly traded company and NextEra Energy (NEE) agreed to acquire the company, excluding the banking subsidiary. Array BioPharma (ARRY) rose 15% after announcing it has reached a definitive agreement with Novartis (NVS) to regain full worldwide rights to binimetinib, a MEK inhibitor in three Phase 3 trials, which Piper Jaffray called a "big win" for the company. Among the noteworthy losers was UTi Worldwide (UTIW), which fell 11.5% after confirming that exploratory conversations have taken place with DSV, but adding those discussions never progressed beyond a preliminary stage and that no talks are currently taking place. Also lower were shares of Express (EXPR), which declined over 9% after the apparel retailer reported lower than expected Q3 revenue and gave EPS guidance that fell short of estimates. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 53.56, or 0.3%, to 17,859.06, the Nasdaq was down 2.80, or 0.06%, to 4,771.67, and the S&P 500 was down 5.49, or 0.26%, to 2,068.84.
