16:36 EDTWMTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street saw another day of relatively quiet trading in a tight range, but the major averages once again finished the session higher than where they'd began. The Dow, powered by the post-earnings advance from Wal-Mart (WMT), led and closed at a new all-time high for the third time in the last four days. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rebounded 12K to 290K in the week ending November 8, versus expectations for 280K first-time claims. The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTs report, showed job openings fell to 4.335M in September, versus the consensus forecast for 4.8M openings. The Treasury reported a $121.7B budget deficit for October, versus the consensus deficit forecast of $117B. COMPANY NEWS: Wal-Mart led the Dow, advancing $3.74, or 4.72%, to $82.94 after the world's largest retailer's earnings beat expectations and it reported U.S. comparable store sales grew 0.5% during the just-completed quarter... Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) agreed to acquire the Duracell battery business from Procter and Gamble (PG) via a stock swap. In exchange for a recapitalized Duracell company, which will include approximately $1.7B in cash at closing, P&G will receive shares of its own common stock currently held by Berkshire having a current value of approximately $4.7B, the companies announced. Shares of Procter & Gamble, which also guided to FY15 core EPS growth in a mid-single digit percentage range, fell 88c, or 0.98%, to $88.60 after the deal was announced and guidance was issued. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Baker Hughes (BHI), which surged $7.77, or 15.24%, to $58.75 after The Wall Street Journal said the company is in fast-moving talks to be acquired by larger peer Halliburton (HAL), which also rose 56c, or 1.05%, to $53.79 following the report. Also higher was DreamWorks Animation (DWA), which jumped $3.15, or 14.08%, to $25.52 after several media outlets reported that the animated movie maker company was in talks about selling itself to toy maker Hasbro (HAS). Hasbro shares fell $2.49, or 4.33%, to $54.98 following the reports. Also lower were shares of Revance (RVNC), which fell $4.93, or 23.48%, to $16.07 after the company said last night that the preliminary results from its ongoing open-label study suggest it still has "some work to do" to increase the probability of success for its upcoming Phase 3 pivotal program for RT001. INDEXES: The Dow rose 40.59, or 0.23%, to 17,652.79, the Nasdaq gained 5.01, or 0.11%, to 4,680.14, and the S&P 500 added 1.08, or 0.05%, to 2,039.33.
