Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday despite disappointing purchasing managers' index readings in both China and Europe. The market took its early lead from Europe and opened lower, though the major averages moved into positive territory following a trio of better than expected domestic economic reports, as the leading economic indicators, Philadelphia Fed survey, and existing home sales all beat consensus forecasts.

Existing home sales rose 1.5% to a 5.26M rate in October, which beat expectations for a decline to a 5.15M unit rate. The index of leading indicators climbed 0.9% to 105.2 in October, beating expectations for a 0.5% increase. The Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index surged to 40.8 in November, easily topping the consensus expectation for a 18.0 reading. In Asia, the HSBC/Markit manufacturing PMI for China fell to a six-month low of 50.0 in the flash reading for November, which is down from a final reading of 50.4 in October and below the 50.3 consensus forecast. In Europe, Markit's flash eurozone PMI composite output index, which tracks surveys from both the manufacturing and services sectors, came in at 51.4 for November, which was down from 52.1 in October and represents the measure's lowest level in 16 months.

07:05 EDTBBYBest Buy says internal, external factors could pressure operating income rate
CFO McCollam said "The sales trends we are seeing in our business as we enter the fourth quarter are encouraging from a top-line perspective. But to drive these results, similar to Q3, there are internal and external factors that we believe could put pressure on our operating income rate. The internal factors include: (1) the increased mix of faster growing, but lower-margin products in our revenue; (2) the potential impact of higher incentive compensation, particularly in our retail stores, based on our expected year-over-year improvement in performance; (3) higher growth in our lower-margin online channel; and (4) intensified investments in customer-facing initiatives. The external factors include: (1) an intensely promotional competitive environment; (2) a possible constraint in product availability in recent high-profile product launches; and (3) a potential supply chain disruption related to the West Coast port delays.”
