12:46 EDTRAXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were little changed at midday, as the light economic calendar and bond markets being closed in observance of Veteran's Day make for a quiet tone to the market. The averages have remained close to the flat line throughout the morning, as the major averages undergo a day of consolidation near their record levels. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the National Federation of Independent Business' small business optimism index came in at 96.1, which was up from the prior 95.3 figure and roughly matched the consensus forecast. In Asia, Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that the country's intended second sales tax hike will be delayed, according to government sources cited by Reuters. COMPANY NEWS: Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) generated record sales during the Chinese Singles Day holiday and a number of research firms initiated coverage of the stock with upbeat notes. Alibaba stated on its official corporate news Twitter feed that its final Singles Day shopping festival gross merchandise volume exceeded $9.3B and the company's Executive Chairman Jack Ma made headlines by stating that the company's Alipay finance services arm will "definitely" go public. Additionally, Oppenheimer initiated coverage of Alibaba with an Outperform rating in a note to investors last night and HSBC earlier today initiated coverage of Alibaba with an Overweight rating and a Street-high price target of $148 per share. Despite all of this, the stock appeared to have a "sell-the-news" reaction to the Singles Day event, as its shares fell about 3% in midday trading. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Rackspace (RAX), which rallied 13.5% after the cloud computing service provider reported better than expected third quarter results and announced a $500M share repurchase plan. Also higher was ICU Medical (ICUI), which rose 14% and was upgraded at Roth Capital and Piper Jaffray following its second consecutive better than expected quarterly report. Among the noteworthy losers was Vivint Solar (VSLR), which tumbled over 21% after the company reported steeper than expected losses in its first quarterly report since coming public last month. Also lower following its first earnings report since coming public was e-commerce home goods retailer Wayfair (W), which dropped 13% despite posting revenues that beat the consensus forecast and Pacific Crest and Wells Fargo making positive comments on its results. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 9.89, or 0.06%, to 17,603.85, the Nasdaq was up 1.67, or 0.04%, to 4,653.29, and the S&P 500 was little changed at 2,038.15.
