12:18 EDTBAC, GM, CHTP, DTLK, QIWI, NUSOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday following a better than expected report on manufacturing in the New York region as well as solid earnings from Bank of America (BAC). Renewed optimism surrounding the earnings season following reports from three of the largest U.S. banks has given investors the confidence to push the Dow to its second triple digit gain in a row. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the 0.4% increase in the producer-price index in December from the prior month matched economists' estimate. The "core" measure, which excludes food and energy, climbed 0.3%, which was more than the 0.1% forecast. The Empire State manufacturing index surged to 12.5 in January from a revised 2.2 reading for December, beating expectations for a more modest rise to 3.5. Also, in its latest Global Economic Prospects report the World Bank raised its forecast for global economic growth to 3.2% this year from 2.4% in 2013. COMPANY NEWS: Bank of America grew its fourth quarter earnings to 29c a share, which was greatly increased from the 3c a share it posted in the same period last year earlier and also exceeded the 26c a share that analysts had expected. Shares of the bank, the third large U.S. bank to report in the last two days, rose about 2.5% near midday following the report... General Motors (GM) shares were down nearly 2% amid a number of newsworthy developments. The automaker declared a 30c per share quarterly common stock dividend, its first dividend since coming out of bankruptcy, and appointed a new Chief Financial Officer. GM also said it expects its earnings before interest and tax to be "modestly improved" in 2014, but warned it expects restructuring costs this year of $1.1B. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Chelsea Therapeutics (CHTP), whose share price more than doubled after an FDA advisory committee voted to support approval of Northera for the treatment of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension. Also higher was Datalink (DTLK), a designer of servers, storage and networks, which soared 28% after the company raised its fourth quarter outlook. Among the noteworthy losers was multi-level marketer Nu Skin (NUS), which fell 19% after a cautious article about the company was published in the Chinese-language periodical "People's Daily." However, the company said in a statement to Bloomberg that the report contained inaccuracies. Also lower were shares of Qiwi (QIWI), a provider of payment services in Russia, which fell over 17% after Russia's Kommersant reported that the country may limit domestic payments using anonymous electronic wallets and ban cross-border payments using them. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 121.28, or 0.74%, to 16,495.14, the Nasdaq was up 28.42, or 0.68%, to 4,211.44, and the S&P 500 was up 10.29, or 0.56%, to 1,849.17.
