12:24 EDTRAX, XONE, GE, RATE, DDD, CMCSA, CLF, WCG, PRLBOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday following the president's State of the Union address and a report that showed retail sales growth slowed in January. The Dow and S&P have moved back and forth across the flat line while the Nasdaq remained in positive ground throughout the morning, but was well off its early day highs near noon... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales rose 0.1% in January, which was in-line with expectations though down from a 0.5% gain in December. Import prices rose 0.6% during the month, versus expectations for an increase of 0.8%, while Export prices were up 0.3% in January, matching the consensus forecast. Business inventories grew 0.1% in December, versus expectations for a 0.2% increase. Additionally, in his State of the Union address last night, President Obama outlined a mix of old and new proposals intended to jump-start the domestic economy as well as urging Congress to raise the minimum wage to $9 an hour from the existing $7.25. In Europe, Q4 industrial production fell 2.4% from the previous quarter, though production in the euro-zone rose 0.7% on the month in December... COMPANY NEWS: Comcast (CMCSA) announced several important developments late Tuesday and investors reacted favorably, sending its stock up over 4%. The company reported its Q4 results but also announced it will buy General Electric’s (GE) remaining 49% equity stake in NBCUniversal for $16.7B, increased its dividend by 20% to 78c per share and said it plans to buy back $2B of its stock in 2013. After the earlier than expected sale of the JV interest, GE said it was raising its share repurchase plan to $35B and accelerating its 2013 share buybacks to about $10B and its shares rose about 3%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Proto Labs (PRLB), up 23%, after its better than expected earnings report as well as a positive mention of 3D printing technology by President Obama last night. Shares of publicly traded 3D printer makers moved up as well, including 3D Systems (DDD) and ExOne (XONE). Also higher were shares of WellCare (WCG), which gained 10% after its earnings and revenue both beat consensus expectations. Among the noteworthy losers after earnings reports that sparked analyst downgrades were Bankrate (RATE), down nearly 20% and downgraded at Citi, Rackspace (RAX), down 18% and downgraded at Stifel Nicolaus, and Cliffs Natural (CLF), which was downgraded at Deutsche Bank, Citi and Macquarie and saw shares fall about 19%... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 44.62, or 0.32%, to 13,974.08; the Nasdaq was up 4.55, or 0.14%, to 3,191.04; and the S&P 500 was up 0.30, or 0.02%, to 1,519.73.

05:52 EDTCMCSARuling in Netflix case a negative for Rovi, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty says court filings released after yesterday's market close indicate Netflix (NFLX) was granted a motion of summary invalidating all five of the remaining Rovi (ROVI) patents that were being contested. Auty expects Rovi to sell off on the news as investors consider what the ruling may do to the company's upcoming contract renewals with Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), DirecTV (DTV) and DISH (DISH). The "big 4" choosing to litigate against Rovi is "certainly a possibility," but the companies have bigger patent infringement exposures than an over-the-top vendor like Netflix, Auty writes in a research note. He keeps a Neutral rating on Rovi.
