12:34 EDTBA, MTOR, KMP, CPNO, BIOC, CHK, NOC, LLL, BBRY, RIMM, CODEOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday after a surprising report that showed gross domestic product contracted in the fourth quarter of 2012. The averages have remained in a narrow trading range right around the flat line ahead of the FOMC statement expected this afternoon... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Commerce Department said gross domestic product shrunk at a 0.1% annual rate in Q4, far short of the analyst forecast for 1.1% growth. The weak preliminary result, which was attributed to a plunge in inventories and defense spending, may be revised in the months ahead, but if it stays in negative territory Q4 would mark the first U.S. economic contraction since Q2 of 2009. The Federal Open Market Committee decision later today may be market moving, though analysts generally expect no change to rates or policy... COMPANY NEWS: Boeing (BA) led the Dow with a gain of over 1% after its better-than-expected earnings and forecast for the upcoming year reassured investors. The company also said 787 production continues, though 787 deliveries are suspended until the FAA gives clearance. Among other companies in the Aerospace & Defense industry also reporting this morning, L-3 Communications (LLL) and Northrop Grumman (NOC) advanced as well... Research In Motion (RIMM), in addition to unveiling two new smartphones and its new BlackBerry 10 operating system, announced it will change its corporate name to "BlackBerry" and Nasdaq ticker to "BBRY". Investors certainly appeared to "sell the news" as shares, which had been up early in the session, slid during the launch event and were down nearly 8% near noon... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Chesapeake Energy (CHK), which rose 6% after the company announced last night that its controversial CEO, Aubrey McClendon, would retire on April 1. Other gainers included two companies being acquired: BioClinica (BIOC), advanced 19% after agreeing to be acquired by JLL Partners for $7.25 a share, while Copano Energy (CPNO) gained 14% after being acquired by Kinder Morgan Energy (KMP) in a unit for unit transaction. Kinder Morgan shares slid over 2% after the deal announcement. Among the other noteworthy losers were Meritor (MTOR), down nearly 16%, and Spansion (CODE), which fell 12% after their earnings reports... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 17.82, or 0.13%, to 13,936.60; the Nasdaq was down 1.54, or 0.05%, to 3,152.12; and the S&P 500 was down 2.92, or 0.19%, to 1,504.92.
