12:19 EDTMYGN, CROX, NQ, TWTR, BXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in quiet fashion and have remained that way throughout the morning. There was little reaction to the dayís economic reports, which included a lower than expected pending home sales report and a generally in-line survey on manufacturing in the Dallas area. The averages have been mostly mixed, with the Dow in positive territory, the Nasdaq lower, and the S&P hugging the flat line during the early part of the session. 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. COMPANY NEWS: One of the day's big winners is footwear maker Crocs (CROX), which rose 20% after the company announced a financial partnership with private equity firm Blackstone (BX). Blackstone will buy $198 million of convertible preferred stock in the company, 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, has resigned. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was NQ Mobile (NQ), which jumped 21% after Morgan Stanley (MS) disclosed a 5.2% passive stake in the Chinese mobile Internet service provider. Myriad Genetics (MYGN) sunk 15% 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. Among the other noteworthy losers was Twitter (TWTR), which fell another 5% near noon after having declined about 13% last Friday. INDEXES: Near noon, the Dow was up 7.66, or 0.05%, to 16,486.07, the Nasdaq was down 3.92, or 0.09%, to 4,152.68, and the S&P 500 was down 1.09, or 0.06%, to 1,840.31.
