16:52 EDTBA, PLXS, QLTY, PKT, AAPL, VHC, BTU, ANR, HMA, THC, JNPROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower on the day, after last night's re-election of Barack Obama lead to an early sell-off that did not let up. After receiving clarity on the White House, attention on the Street turned to the looming fiscal cliff. An intra-day announcement by Boeing (BA) of cuts to its defense division heightened fears that a deal would not be reached by legislators before the scheduled budget cuts take effect... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., President Obama was re-elected and Congress remains split, with Republicans keeping control of the House of Representatives and Democrats maintaining their majority in the Senate. House Speaker John Boehner stated in a speech late in the day that Republicans are “willing to accept new revenue” to reach a compromise that averts the approaching fiscal cliff. U.S. consumer credit climbed $11.4B in September, a slightly higher number than was expected. In Europe, the European Commission lowered its 2013 growth forecast for the region's economy to 0.1% from a prior call for 1% growth. Also, German industrial production fell 1.8% in September from the prior month, which was worse than forecast... COMPANY NEWS: Boeing announced that it will cut executive positions in its Defense, Space & Security unit, and a report said it also plans to close facilities and restructure several business units. Shares of Boeing were down $1.47, or 2.05%, to $70.11... Following the re-election of President Obama, hospital stocks were among the few stocks that advanced on the day, notably shares of Tenet Healthcare (THC), up $2.39, or 9.58%, to $27.34 and Health Management Associates (HMA), up 56c, or 7.25%, to $8.28... Amongst the broader market slide, coal stocks Alpha Natural Resources (ANR) and Peabody Energy (BTU) both fell sharply after enjoying a run-up through October heading into the election... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was VirnetX (VHC), up $7.32, or 27.84%, to $33.61 after a jury awarded the company over $368M in a patent verdict against Apple (AAPL). Also trading higher were shares of Procera Networks (PKT), up $2.95, or 14.54%, to $23.24, after the company's Q3 earnings beat consensus estimates and the company reiterated its FY12 revenue view. Among noteworthy losers was Quality Distribution (QLTY), down $2.92, or 33.95%, to $5.68 after the company's Q3 earnings missed consensus estimates and the stock was downgraded at SunTrust and JPMorgan. Also lower were shares of Plexus (PLXS), down $7.45, or 26.65%, to $20.51 after the company announced Juniper (JNPR) had dropped it as a supplier... INDICES: The Dow lost 312.95, or 2.36%, to 12,932.73; the Nasdaq fell 74.64, or 2.48%, to 2,937.29; and the S&P 500 dropped 33.86, or 2.37%, to 1,394.53.
