12:11 EDTUTXOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session in negative territory and proceed to lose additional ground after the open. Despite another disappointing weekly Department of Energy inventory report, which pointed to larger than expected builds of both oil and gas stockpiles, the price of crude moved higher in later morning trading, taking equities up with it. Fed watchers have zero expectation that the central bank will announce an interest rate hike later today, but are hoping for a dovish policy statement to be issued in conjunction with the end of the latest FOMC meeting. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., new home sales surged 10.8% to a 544,000 annualized pace in December, topping expectations and hitting their highest level in 10 months. The FOMC rate decision is due out at 2 pm ET and 100% of 104 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg were aligned in predicting no change to benchmark U.S. interest rates will be announced today. While their is no chance seen that the central bank will raise rates, the language in the statement will be closely examined for any clues on the Fed's thinking about when the next rate may be coming. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) declined about 5% after the tech giant reported first quarter earnings that topped consensus estimates last night, but also issued revenue guidance for the new quarter that missed expectation. The company was noted by several analysts as having a particularly downbeat tone in its earnings conference call, invoking the difficult macroeconomic environment and weakness it has recently seen in China... Apple was not the worst performer in the Dow, however, as that distinction goes to Boeing (BA). Shares of the commercial airplane maker and defense contractor plummeted 7% after its profit outlook for the new fiscal year fell far short of the Street's consensus forecast. Conversely, United Technologies (UTX), which is also in the Dow and also involved in aerospace and defense, gained 2% after backing its adjusted earnings outlook for fiscal 2016. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was SunEdison (SUNE), which rallied 12% after the company and David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital agreed to new corporate governance initiatives, including appointing Claire Gogel to its board and amending its bylaws to provide that it will not make equity issuances for two years without supermajority vote of the board. Also higher were Commvault (CVLT), Hess (HES) and Biogen (BIIB), which gained 13%, 10% and 8%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. Among the noteworthy losers was DreamWorks Animations (DWA), which fell 4.5% after the stock was downgraded to Sell at Topeka. Also lower were U.S. Steel (X), VMware (VMW), and Textron (TXT), which were down 12%, 8.5%, and 8%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 37.60, or 0.23%, to 16,204.83, the Nasdaq was down 9.88, or 0.22%, to 4,557.79, and the S&P 500 was up 9.54, or 0.5%, to 1,913.17.
