13:41 EDTC, AAPL, T, AKAMMarket poised to end week little changed as fiscal cliff fears continue
Stocks are set to end the week little changed as continued fears over the fiscal cliff kept the market range bound. MACRO NEWS: House Speaker John Boehner said earlier today that little progress had been made on fiscal cliff negotiations, even though some Republicans earlier in the week signaled that they could be open to tax rate increases demanded by President Obama... More jobs than expected were added to the economy in November, and the unemployment rate dipped to 7.7% from 7.9%, but investors seemed unimpressed by the data. One reason for the skepticism was that declines in the labor participation rate were the main cause of the drop in unemployment. COMPANY NEWS: Citigroup (C) said it would lay off 11,000 people, and, as a result, take a $1B pre-tax charge this quarter. The bank expects to save $900M in 2013 and $1.1B each year beginning in 2014 due to the layoffs... Apple's (AAPL) stock is set to finish much lower again this week. A number of hypotheses were made in an attempt to explain the weakness. Weak smartphone sales by AT&T (T) in October and November and technical milestones reached by the shares were two of the more popular explanations... On a positive note, Internet content delivery company Akamai (AKAM) jumped after announcing an alliance with AT&T.
