12:42 EDTSWKSOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The averages moved in a narrow range for most of the opening hour of the session but spurted to higher levels during the second hour. Investors appear to be using yesterday’s sell-off as a buying opportunity, despite the ongoing events in Russia and Israel that largely contributed to yesterday’s action. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The first release of the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for July fell to 81.3 after ending June with an 82.5 reading. The leading economic indicator index rose 0.3% to 102.2, which was a bit below the forecast for an increase of 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of Google (GOOGL) advanced over 3% after the search giant reported quarterly revenue that beat expectations last night. Following its report, at least three Wall Street research firms raised their price targets on the stock, while noted tech analyst Collin Gillis of BGC Financial upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold... Dow component General Electric (GE) reported second quarter EPS of 39c, matching the consensus forecast, and revenue that just missed the consensus view of analysts. The company also reported that it is targeting the initial public offering of IPO of Synchrony Financial (SYF), its North American Retail Finance business, for July. In the IPO, Synchrony is offering 125M shares of its common stock, which will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “SYF,” and anticipates that the IPO price of the shares will be between $23.00 and $26.00 per share... Another Dow member, IBM (IBM), fell 0.4% after reporting adjusted Q2 earnings per share and revenue that beat expectations. Afterward, Cantor said it thinks the worst is over for the company and reiterated its Buy rating on the shares, though Societe Generale downgraded IBM to Sell from Hold and Credit Suisse said IBM continues to be driven by less revenue growth and kept its Underperform rating and $160 price target on Big Blue's stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Skyworks (SWKS), which gained 14% after reporting third quarter results and fourth quarter guidance above analyst estimates and seeing no less than five analyst firms raise their price targets on its stock. Also higher was Gentiva Health (GTIV), which rose 14% after it announced that its board unanimously determined to reject the partial tender offer from Kindred Healthcare (KND) to acquire 14.9% of the outstanding shares of Gentiva for a price of $16.00 per share in cash and disclosed that it has received a $17.25 per share, all-cash takeover proposal from a "recognized owner, operator and investor in the sector." After the announcement, shares of Kindred fell 2%. Also lower following their earnings reports were RealPage (RP), which fell over 21%, and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which dropped nearly 18%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 107.05, or 0.63%, to 17,083.86, the Nasdaq was up 57.98, or 1.33%, to 4,421.43, and the S&P 500 was up 17.04, or 0.87%, to 1,975.16.
