12:13 EDTROPOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday, but off their worst levels of the day, as oil is once again being weighed on by worries of slower growth in China. Several M&A announcements helped fuel speculation that deal-making may be set to pick up, but the headwinds of lower oil prices and weak economic data are outweighing that potential boost and keeping stocks in the red to start the month. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., personal income rose 0.3% in December, versus expectations for an increase of 0.2%, while spending was flat, versus expectations for an increase of 0.1%. Markit's manufacturing purchasing managers index for January dipped to 52.4 in the final January reading, down from the 52.7 flash reading and the below the 52.6 reading that was expected. The Institute for Supply Management's manufacturing index for January came in at 48.2, below the 48.4 that analysts expected. Construction spending rose 0.1% in December, which was weaker than the 0.6% increase that was forecast. In China, the statistics bureau's official manufacturing purchasing managers index fell to 49.4 in January from 49.7 in December. The private Caixin manufacturing PMI edged up to 48.4 from 48.2 in the prior reading, but both figures still remain in contraction territory. In Europe, Markit's manufacturing PMI for the euro zone dropped to 52.3 from December's 53.2, in-line with the earlier flash estimate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Twitter (TWTR) advanced 9% after tech reporter Jessica Lessin said private equity firm Silver Lake and investor Marc Andreessen have "considered some sort of deal" for the microblog service operator. Lessin noted in the report published on her site, The Information, that she did not know if deal talks are "active" now between Andreessen, Silver Lake and Twitter... Alere (ALR) surged 45% to $54 per share near midday after Abbott (ABT) agreed to acquire the company for $56 per share at a total expected equity value of $5.8B. In other Monday M&A news, Questar (STR) rose 22% after Dominion Resources (D) agreed to acquire it for $25 per share, or about $4.4B, and assume Questar's outstanding debt. Meanwhile, Stryker (SYK) announced a deal to acquire Sage Products for $2.775B in cash. The buyers' shares did not fare as well in the wake of the deal announcements, as Abbott slipped 0.5%, Dominion dipped 1% and Stryker fell 1%. Also lower were shares of Smith & Nephew (SNN), which slid fractionally as investors may have been concerned that Stryker's deal decreases the likelihood that it will come after S&N. Additionally, Smith & Nephew announced that its CEO Olivier Bohuon has been diagnosed with a "highly treatable" form of cancer. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Lumber Liquidators (LL), which gained 8.5% after a judge accepted the company's $10M plea deal to settle timber source crime charges, according to media reports. Also higher was Chipotle (CMG), which rose 5.5% after The Wall Street Journal reported that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to formally declare the end to its E.coli outbreak as soon as today. In addition, Sysco (SYY) and Aetna (AET) were up 7% and 2%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. Among the noteworthy losers was Nokia (NOK), which fell 12% after it forecasted how much revenue it expects to gain from its IP portfolio after its patent deal with Samsung (SSNLF) and its shares were downgraded at Canaccord and BofA Merrill Lynch. Also lower was GoPro (GPRO), which was slid 5% after analysts from Piper Jaffray and Citi predicted that the company's guidance to be issued this week will disappoint investors. In addition, Roper Technologies (ROP) and ImmunoGen (IMGN) were down 6.5% and 5.7%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 56.40, or 0.34%, to 16,409.90, the Nasdaq was down 12.25, or 0.27%, to 4,601.70, and the S&P 500 was down 6.51, or 0.34%, to 1,933.73.
