Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday despite disappointing purchasing managers' index readings in both China and Europe.

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. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Best Buy (BBY) advanced 7% after its third quarter profit beat estimates and it reported that its domestic same-store sales grew 3.2%. The electronics retailer also said the sales trends it is seeing as its enters the critical fourth quarter are "encouraging from a top-line perspective."
