12:25 EDTBA, JPM, GS, AAPL, CBK, GNW, CMG, CROXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with new worries for Boeing (BA) weighing on its shares and in turn the Dow. The earnings season began in earnest today with some of the country’s largest financial institutions reporting fourth quarter results, including JPMorgan (JPM), Goldman Sachs (GS) and U.S. Bancorp (USB). Still to come this week are Bank of America (BAC) and Citigroup (C), set to report tomorrow, and Morgan Stanley (MS), scheduled to release results Friday... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., MBA's mortgage applications composite index rose 15.2% for the week. The Consumer Price Index for December was flat, as expected. Industrial production increased 0.3% in December, versus expectations for a rise of 0.2%. That boosted capacity utilization to 78.8% from an upwardly revised 78.7% figure for the prior month. The NAHB's Housing Market Index came in at 47, versus the expected reading of 48. Crude oil inventories drew down by more than expected in the DOE's weekly update. Also, the World Bank lowered it forecast for global GDP growth in 2013 to 2.4% from its prior call for 3% growth... COMPANY NEWS: Boeing shares slid over 3% and dragged on the Dow Jones Industrial Average after two Japanese airlines grounded their fleet of 787s. This move was prompted by yesterday's emergency landing of a 787 Dreamliner operated by Japan's All Nippon Airways, which was the latest in a recent string of problems with the new plane... JPMorgan (JPM) reported earnings that beat expectations, but shares moved up only fractionally. The company notably also released its report on the "London Whale" losses at its CIO unit and cut CEO Jamie Dimon's compensation following that scandal. Another major financial company, Goldman Sachs (GS), beat expectations more resoundingly and shares rose more dramatically, up about 3% near noon... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Genworth Financial (GNW), up 9% after announcing changes to its mortgage insurance unit, and Christopher & Banks (CBK), up nearly 14% after raising its Q4 same-store sales view. Also higher were shares of Apple (AAPL), which rose 3.6% to retake the $500 level despite Pacific Crest downgrading the stock to Sector Perform and Bank of America Merrill Lynch lowering its price target on shares. Among the noteworthy losers were Crocs (CROX), down over 7% after saying it expects quarterly revenue to be in-line with its previous guidance, and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), down nearly 6% after guiding to Q4 earnings below consensus due to higher food costs... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 23.65, or 0.17%, to 13,511.24; the Nasdaq was up 6.75, or 0.22%, to 3,117.53; and the S&P 500 was down 0.68, or 0.05%, to 1,471.66.
