12:34 EDTCODE, CPNO, NOC, RIMM, MTOR, BIOC, LLL, BA, KMP, CHK, BBRYOn 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.

13:37 EDTBABoeing responds to IAM's petition to unionize Boeing South Carolina
Boeing was notified that the International Association of Machinists union has petitioned the National Labor Relations Board for a union election at the company's North Charleston, S.C., facilities. If the NLRB permits it, a vote will be scheduled for eligible teammates to decide whether they will turn over their rights to the IAM or keep a direct relationship with the company. "Boeing South Carolina teammates have done what so many people said couldn't be done. And they did it by working together, engaging every day, and truly committing themselves to the success of our site," said Beverly Wyse, Boeing South Carolina's newly appointed vice president and general manager. "And let's be really clear, the IAM was not part of this success it was our BSC teammates. In fact, the IAM aggressively opposed it, as publicly demonstrated by their filing of a claim with the National Labor Relations Board, to try to keep our site from even opening. Now, simply by filing this petition, the same union that tried to take our jobs and our work, has already begun to divide our team at a time when we're just beginning to gel and catch a solid rhythm in production." Boeing firmly believes that a union is not in the best interest of Boeing South Carolina teammates and their families, their communities, and the state of South Carolina, especially after years of the IAM insulting the abilities of Boeing South Carolina teammates and fighting against BSC's success. "We think our Boeing South Carolina teammates deserve to pave their own future and keep their hard-earned money in their own pockets," said Wyse. "In fact, they've been very successful doing just that for the past five years. They've built not only new airplanes, but also a new site, and new opportunities for an incredible future here in South Carolina by working together as a team, without the distractions of a union. We're extremely proud of what our teammates have accomplished." Boeing South Carolina has established several outlets to keep teammates, their families and the community updated throughout this process, including a website and Facebook page that provides information, facts, data, and additional resources related to the IAM's unionizing efforts in South Carolina.
