Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after a new fiscal cliff proposal made by House Speaker Boehner was rejected, but the movement on some battleground issues was viewed as progress toward a compromise. The Washington Post reported over the weekend that Obama's administration rejected Boehner's offer, which included higher tax rates on millionaires and an increase in the debt ceiling, but the proposal was viewed as a "breakthrough" among Democrats. Headlines that more talks were held at the White House between the President and the Speaker sparked the averages to their highs... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., a benchmark for New York state manufacturing, the New York Fed's Empire State Survey, came up negative for a fifth straight month. The December reading, which was forecast to move up to -1.0 from its prior -5.2 level, instead slid to -8.10. In Europe, data showed euro zone exports declined 1.4% in October from the prior month, as imports increased 0.6%.

07:42 EDTSSprint does not expect to raise additional capital through public markets
Sprint (S) total liquidity was $6.6B at the end of the quarter and the company had an additional $1.3B of availability under vendor financing agreements that can be utilized toward the purchase of 2.5 GHz network equipment. Sprint said it has been working with Softbank (SFTBF) and other partners in setting up a leasing company that will finance its devices leased by customers on attractive terms. These arrangements are expected to be finalized in the coming months, and Softbank is expected to be a minority equity investor in the leasing company. With additional expected expense reductions, a capital efficient deployment of the network, and funding from the proposed leasing company, Sprint currently does not expect to raise additional capital through the public debt or equity markets in the foreseeable future, nor does it currently expect to sell spectrum.
