16:25 EDTBA, C, BAC, BLK, KSWS, CBS, HLF, CLSNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher as better than expected domestic economic data pushed the market up at the open and investors continued to buy through the session. The S&P 500 and Dow hit five-year highs in the second half of the session, but closed just off their best levels... 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% 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: The FAA last night announced it was grounding all Boeing (BA) 787 flights until the safety of the plane's battery can be proven to the agency. Air India and EU flight regulators also joined the list of organizations that have grounded the Boeing plane, and while shares of Boeing opened lower, they advanced through the session and closed up 92c, or 1.24%, to $75.26... Financial giants Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC) both reported earnings before today's open and shares of both banks lost ground on the day. Citigroup missed expectations and saw shares lose $1.24, or 2.92%, to $41.24, while Bank of America beat lowered EPS estimates but slid 50c, or 4.24%, to $11.28. BlackRock (BLK), however, advanced $9.76, or 4.39%, to $232.00 after it beat Street estimates and raised its dividend... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was K-Swiss (KSWS), which rose $1.52, or 47.65%, to $4.71 after agreeing to be acquired for $4.75 cash per share. Also higher were shares of CBS (CBS), up $3.01, or 7.93%, to $40.95 after announcing plans to convert its U.S. outdoor advertising business to a REIT and to seek to sell its outdoor operations in Europe and Asia. Among notable losers were shares of Herbalife (HLF), down $1.54, or 3.42%, to $43.52 after the company said it sees Q4 and FY12 EPS just above Street estimates and said it expects to begin repurchasing shares soon. Also lower were shares of Celsion (CLSN), down 79c, or 9.75%, to $7.31 following a downgrade to Sell at Brean Capital... INDICES: The Dow was up 84.79, or 0.63%, to 13,596.02; the Nasdaq was up 18.46, or 0.59%, to 3,136.00; and the S&P 500 was up 8.31, or 0.56%, to 1,480.94.

13:43 EDTBLKFidelity to pitch new lost cost trading venue to large asset managers, WSJ says
Fidelity is working on a new trading venue, dubbed "Sakura," that it hopes will be a collaboration among big mutual-fund firms to reduce costs and streamline trading and will be an improvement over other "dark pools," reported The Wall Street Journal, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The report said Fidelity is in the initial planning stages and has just started pitching the idea to other large asset managers. Publicly traded fund managers include BlackRock (BLK), Franklin Resources (BEN) and T. Rowe Price (TROW), while Investment Technology Group (ITG) currently operates dark pools that facilitate block trading among large institutions. Exchange operators Nasdaq (NDAQ) and Intercontinentalexchange's (ICE) NYSE have previously testified to legislators that too much trading occurs in dark pools, hurting investors. Reference Link
