12:32 EDTMFRM, CIE, BAC, PXP, C, SVU, JPM, FB, MMR, P, TOT, TRV, AAPL, FCXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, as the financials lead the Dow higher and Apple (AAPL) weighed on the Nasdaq. A number of factors, including Facebook's (FB) upcoming inclusion in the Nasdaq 100 and reports of increased margin requirements on its stock, may have contributed to Apple's slide of over 4%. Conversely, strength in Bank of America (BAC), Travelers (TRV) and JP Morgan (JPM) powered the blue chip index higher... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., payroll processor ADP said employers added 118,000 jobs last month, which was below analysts' forecasts, but the chief economist at Moody's Analytics estimated Superstorm Sandy cut the total by 86,000 jobs. The Labor Department revised its estimate for Q3 productivity growth up to an annual rate of 2.9% from its initial estimate of 1.9%. Labor costs in the quarter dropped at a rate of 1.9%, which was more than the 0.1% dip initially estimated. Factory orders rose 0.8% in October, versus expectations for them to be flat, and the ISM non-manufacturing PMI rose to 54.7, versus expectations for it to slip to 53.5. In China, stocks bounced back from multi year lows as the government allowed insurers to invest more in banks and its new leaders made comments that were viewed favorably... COMPANY NEWS: In a bold step by its new CEO, Citigroup (C) announced it will cut about 4% of its workforce, or 11,000 jobs, with about 6,200 coming from its consumer banking unit and about 1,900 coming from the institutional clients group, which includes investment banking. Citi sees pre-tax charges of around $1B in Q4 due to the restructuring but expects the cuts to save $900M next year and slightly more after that. Citi shares jumped nearly 6% following the news... In a huge deal that takes Freeport McMoRan (FCX) from being a metals pure play and back to its roots as a diversified commodities producer, the company agreed to repurchase McMoRan Exploration (MMR) for $14.75 per share in cash and to acquire Plains Exploration (PXP) for $6.9B in cash and stock. Following the news, which was broken last night by Financial Times, shares of Freeport plunged 13%, while McMoRan Exploration surged 82% and Plains jumped 26%.. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Cobalt International Energy (CIE), up nearly 15% after announcing a Gulf of Mexico discovery in partnership with Total (TOT), and SuperValu (SVU), up over 9% following a report that the company may be close to selling its two biggest grocery chains to a private equity firm. Among the noteworthy losers were Mattress Firm (MFRM), down 21%, and Pandora (P), down 17% following their quarterly reports... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 104.41, or 0.81%, to 13,056.19; the Nasdaq was down 12.63, or 0.42%, to 2,984.06; and the S&P 500 was up 4.66, or 0.33%, to 1,411.71.
