12:25 EDTCLSN, NUS, BLK, BA, PWER, KSWS, C, HLF, CBS, BACOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday following a better than expected monthly report on housing and lower than expected weekly jobless claims. The economic data lifted the futures and led to a higher open for the broader market. The averages have drifted slightly higher during the morning but remain in a narrow range, albeit near five year highs. Financial companies, which are currently in the process of releasing earnings, have been laggards today as investors have been unimpressed with this morning's reports from Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC)... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims fell to 335K, versus expectations for a relatively flat level at 370K. Housing starts surged 12.1% to 954K in December, which was better than expected, while building permits edged up 0.3% in the month to 903K, which was in-line with forecasts. The day's lone disappointing data came from the Philly Fed, which had its manufacturing survey unexpectedly fall to -5.8, compared to consensus calls for a much smaller decline to a 6.0 reading... COMPANY NEWS: Boeing (BA) was front and center in yet another trading session after the FAA grounded the 787 Dreamliner and regulators around the world followed suit. Shares of the Dow component were virtually unchanged in afternoon trading in spite of the news... Citigroup (C) missed earnings expectations, leading to a 2.9% decline in its stock, while Bank of America slid over 3.7% in spite of its earnings narrowly beating consensus. One financial name bucking the sector's trend, however, was BlackRock (BLK), which advanced 4.2% after its results beat expectations and the company increased its dividend... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were K-Swiss (KSWS), up 48% after agreeing to be acquired for $4.75 cash per share, and CBS (CBS), up 10% after announcing plans to convert its U.S. outdoor advertising business to a REIT. Also higher were shares of Nu Skin (NUS), which rose nearly 10% after giving better than expected guidance and are now up almost 3% since the day that Bill Ackman revealed his short thesis in multi-level marketing peer Herbalife (HLF). Among the noteworthy losers were Celsion (CLSN), down almost 9% following a downgrade to Sell at Brean Capital, and Power-One (PWER), down over 7% after lowering its revenue view... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 79.67, or 0.59%, to 13,590.90; the Nasdaq was up 17.87, or 0.57%, to 3,135.41; and the S&P 500 was up 7.97, or 0.54%, to 1,480.60.
