12:32 EDTPIR, COH, TEL, KR, BBRY, MEAS, RHTOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly lower at midday after drifting in a narrow range throughout the morning. The S&P 500 did manage to hit a new all-time high again early in the session following a mixed bag of domestic economic data, but the major averages had all moved back into negative ground, but only narrowly, near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims dropped 6K to 312K last week, which was nearly in-line with expectations. The Philly Fed manufacturing index rose 2.4 points to 17.8 in June, which was better than expected. The leading economic indicator index for May rose 0.5%, which was slightly below the consensus forecast for it to have grown 0.6%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) climbed more than 11% after the company reported stronger than expected first quarter results and said that it had recognized revenue on more handsets in Q1 than in the previous quarter. BlackBerry reported a loss per share, excluding certain items, of (11c), versus analysts' consensus estimate of a (26c) per share loss and the company's revenue came in slightly higher than expected. Moreover, it said that it was close to reaching the breakeven point on hardware sales and added that it expects its subscriber numbers to be steady going forward. BlackBerry should be profitable sometime in fiscal 2016, the company's CEO, John Chen, stated. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Measurement Specialties (MEAS), which advanced 10.5% after announcing last night that it has agreed to be acquired by TE Connectivity (TEL) for $86 cash per share, or a total transaction value of approximately $1.7B including the assumption of debt. Shares of TE Connectivity trading in New York were also up 1% following the news. Also higher following their earnings reports were supermarket operator Kroger (KR), which rose nearly 6%, and open source software provider Red Hat (RHT), which gained about 3%. Among the noteworthy losers was luxury handbag maker Coach (COH), which dropped more than 9% after stating at its investor day meeting that it expects to sees revenue decline by a "low double digit" percentage in FY15. Also lower was home furnishings retailer Pier 1 Imports (PIR), which dropped 13% and hit a fresh 52-week low after the company's first quarter results missed analysts' consensus estimates and it cut its fiscal 2015 earnings per share outlook. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 23.15, or 0.14%, to 16,883.47, the Nasdaq was down 7.99, or 0.18%, to 4,354.84, and the S&P 500 was down 1.12, or 0.06%, to 1,955.86.
