The Wall Street averages were mixed, with the Dow the only one of the major indexes to close in the green. The market saw extremely light volume on a paltry news flow to start the second straight holiday-shortened trading week. Ahead of tomorrow's final trading session of 2013, the benchmark S&P 500 is up about 29%, the tech-heavy Nasdaq is higher by nearly 38%, and the blue-chip Dow is up over 25%, making 2013 one of the best years for equities since the late-1990s. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the pending home sales index increased 0.2% in November from the prior month, versus an expected increase of 1%. The Dallas Fed's manufacturing index edged up to 3.1 in December after falling to 1.9 in November.

Blackstone will buy $198 million of convertible preferred stock in Crocs, which will launch a $350 million share buyback initiative. In conjunction with the deal, Blackstone will be able to name two representatives to Crocs' board and the company's CEO, John McCarvel, will resign... Cooper Tire (CTB) shares rose $1.24, or 5.4%, to $24.20 after the company announced it had terminated its merger agreement with India's Apollo Tyres. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was NQ Mobile (NQ), up $2.05, or 17.3%, to $13.90 after Morgan Stanley (MS) disclosed a 5.2% passive stake in the Chinese mobile Internet service provider. Also higher was Disney (DIS), which advanced $1.88, or 2.53%, to $76.23 after the stock was upgraded by analysts at Guggenheim to Buy from Neutral and reports said that the continued strong performance of "Frozen" at the box office has made it the company's second-highest grossing animated film of all time. Myriad Genetics (MYGN) fell $3.35, or 13.88%, to $20.79 after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services confirmed on Friday that it plans to cut reimbursement rates for the company's BRCA genetic tests, which are used to identify people who have a very high likelihood of developing certain cancers.
