12:10 EDTCLWR, S, CBOU, CPWR, END, CABOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
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%. In Asia, Japan elected a new prime minister who has vowed to adopt a large stimulus package, cut interest rates and take other measures to revive growth in the nation's economy... COMPANY NEWS: Sprint (S) struck a deal to acquire the approximately 50% stake in Clearwire (CLWR) it does not already own for $2.97 per share, or $2.2B. Shares of the two companies moved in opposite directions after the announcement, with Sprint gaining about 0.25% and Clearwire declining almost 13%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Caribou Coffee (CBOU), which rose 30% after agreeing to be acquired by Germany's Joh. A. Benckiser for $16.00 per share in cash, or $340M. Also higher were shares of Compuware (CPWR), up about 15% after Elliott Management offered to acquire the company for $11.00 per share in cash, or $2.3B. Among the noteworthy losers was Endeavour (END), which fell almost 21% after research firm Global Hunter downgraded the stock to Accumulate from Buy and cut its price target on shares to $9 from $13. Also lower was Cabelas (CAB), which slipped about 5% as one of the gun retailers and gun makers seeing its stock move lower in response to intensified calls for gun control following Friday's tragedy in Connecticut... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 76.32, or 0.58%, to 13,211.33; the Nasdaq was up 26.74, or 0.90%, to 2,998.07; and the S&P 500 was up 11.96, or 0.85%, to 1,425.54.
