12:12 EDTPRGS, MOH, CHK, ATPG, MCD, CNC, CHKMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday ahead of a number of potentially market moving events expected over this weekend. Stock futures began the day indicating a sharply lower open, putting the Dow's three day winning streak in jeopardy. The weakness was attributed to continuing worries about the EU's ability to support Spanish banks. The market opened lower, but found a level where it sat and began to build. An hour into the trading session the market had recouped more than half of its losses and a short time later moved back into positive territory. What looked like a day that would end in a sell off has now climbed a wall of worry into positive territory and the averages are once again positive for the year... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., April's trade balance report was generally in line and wholesale inventories in the month increased 0.6%, versus an expected increase of 0.4%. In Europe, Spain is set to become the fourth, and largest, country to seek assistance since Europe's debt crisis began, according to Reuters. The news service cited officials in Brussels and Berlin, saying a conference call is planned for Saturday morning to discuss a Spanish request for aid... COMPANY NEWS: Chesapeake Energy (CHK) was in focus as it held its annual shareholder meeting, where two current directors resigned after shareholder voting and a proposal to amend the company's long term incentive plan passed. Also, the company announced three separate transactions to sell its midstream assets for total proceeds of more than $4B, including the sale of its general partner interests in Chesapeake Midstream Partners (CHKM) to Global Infrastructure Partners for $2B... McDonald's (MCD) reported disappointing worldwide same store sales growth of 3.3% in May, as results were dragged down by the company's performance in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The fast food giant also warned that its Q2 results could be pressured by austerity measures in Europe, foreign currency effects and macro headwinds, sending shares down a bit more than 0.75%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Molina Healthcare (MOH), which rebounded from a slide yesterday to gain more than 27% today, after the company announced last night that it will continue as a Medicaid managed care provider in Ohio. Centene (CNC), up 10%, also benefited from Ohio reversing its earlier decision and recommending the company for a Medicaid contract. Noteworthy losers included ATP Oil & Gas (ATPG), down more than 13%, after the company said it was unable to come to an employment agreement with recently hired CEO Matt McCarroll, resulting in his resignation, and Progress Software (PRGS), down 13%, following its warning that its Q2 earnings and revenue will fall short of consensus estimates... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 11.58, or 0.09%, to 12,472.54; the Nasdaq was up 8.32, or 0.29%, to 2,839.34; and the S&P 500 was up 1.04, or 0.08%, to 1,316.03.
