12:33 EDTSTJ, SQNM, CRM, TLYS, SKX, ZLC, DEOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday in a pre-holiday session marked by little corporate news but a fair amount of economic data. The averages opened quietly after the Labor Department reported a drop in first-time unemployment claims from the prior week, as expected. Among the other economic reports, the consumer confidence reading was slightly lower than expected and the leading economic indicators were slightly above expectations. There was little reaction to any of the reports and volume has been light, which is not surprising... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell to 410,000, which was in-line with forecasts. Markit's "flash" November flash PMI rose to 52.4 from 51.0 in October. The final November reading of the University of Michigan Sentiment index slipped to 82.7 from its 84.9 preliminary reading. The leading indicators edged up 0.2% in October to 96.0 from 95.8 in September. In Europe, the region's finance ministers and the IMF were unable to reach a bailout agreement for Greece and will meet again on Monday with an eye on resolving the remaining disagreements. In Asia, Japanese exports fell 6.5% in October, which was worse than expectations of a 4.9% decline... COMPANY NEWS: Salesforce.com's (CRM) Q3 results beat on the top and bottom lines and RW Baird and Wells Fargo reiterated their Outperform ratings on the stock following the report. Shares advanced 8%. Conversely, Deere (DE) shares slumped 4% after its earnings missed expectations, as did its guidance for the coming year... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sketchers (SKX), rising 12% after Susquehanna upgraded the stock to Positive from Neutral, citing valuation and product momentum. Also higher were shares of Sequenom (SQNM), up 11% after a committee of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommended that cell-free fetal DNA testing be offered to certain at-risk patients. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were Zale (ZLC), down over 28%, and Tilly's (TLYS), down 17%. Also lower was St. Jude Medical (STJ), which fell 14% after an FDA inspection report cited serious flaws in its oversight of design changes in its Durata line of defibrillator leads... INDICES: Near 12:30 pm ET, the Dow was up 45.14, or 0.35%, to 12,833.65; the Nasdaq was up 7.07, or 0.24%, to 2,923.75; and the S&P 500 was up 2.43, or 0.18%, to 1,390.24.
