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%.

Sprint will have a presence in 1,435 Sprint-RadioShack stores by the first week of July. About 300 stores will be completely renovated to the new store-within-a-store model at that time, with the remainder scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. These stores will have new signage, new fixtures and a look-and-feel that is similar to other Sprint-owned stores. The addition of the Sprint-RadioShack stores expands Sprint’s total retail footprint to approximately 4,500 locations in the United States.
