12:39 EDTCSCO, FB, STMP, ANF, IAGOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday as the sluggish trading that has persisted since the end of the U.S. election continues. The averages began the session in positive territory but were unable to improve on their opening prices. The fiscal cliff continues to weigh on the market as lawmakers continue to comment to the press regarding its urgency but have not offered any solutions. The lack of movement on the issue, coupled with new, more aggresive revenue demands from the president, have kept investors anxious and unwilling to bid up the market... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales fell 0.3% in October, versus expectations for a decline of 0.2%. Producer prices fell 0.2% in the month, versus forecasts for them to have increased 0.2%. Excluding food and energy, the core reading fell 0.2%, versus the expected increase of 0.4%. Business inventories rose 0.7% in September, versus expectations for an increase of 0.6%. In Europe, industrial production dropped the most in more than three years in September, declining 2.5% from August and 2.3% from the prior year... COMPANY NEWS: Cisco (CSCO) reported stronger than expected first quarter results and generally in-line second quarter earnings guidance, sparking an upgrade at Pacific Crest and a 6% rally in its shares... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), which surged over 27% after its better than expected quarterly results and full year guidance prompted at least four upgrades of its stock. Also higher were shares of Facebook (FB), up 9% in spite of a massive IPO lock-up expiration that allowed employees and early investors in the company to sell their shares. Among the noteworthy losers were IAMGOLD (IAG), down 18% after reporting its quarterly results and revising its gold production guidance for its next fiscal year, and Stamps.com (STMP), down 11% after Craig-Hallum said the company's site experienced a number of outages in November due to IT issues... INDICES: Near 12:30 pm ET, the Dow was down 75.18, or 0.59%, to 12,681.00; the Nasdaq was down 7.48, or 0.26%, to 2,876.41; and the S&P 500 was down 6.54, or 0.48%, to 1,367.99.

17:17 EDTIAGIAMGOLD reports 2014 reserves of 8.6M ounces
IAMGOLD announced its 2014 year-end mineral reserve and resource statement. Total attributable proven and probable gold reserves decreased by 15% or 1.5M ounces to 8.6M ounces of gold at the end of 2014 due to three principal factors: changes in economic and geotechnical parameters, mainly at Rosebel offset by positive economic parameters resulting from an optimization process at Sadiola, depletion at Rosebel, Essakane and Westwood sites somewhat offset by the increase in reserves at Westwood , reflecting the transfer of resources into reserves, and a lower gold price assumption for reserves at the company's owned and operated mines of $1,300 per ounce at December 31, 2014 compared to $1,400 a year earlier. At Sadiola the gold price assumption for reserves was $1,100 per ounce in both years. Total attributable measured and indicated gold resources decreased by 9% or 2.0 million ounces to 21.4M ounces of gold at the end of 2014 mainly due to changes in economic parameters and depletion at Rosebel and Essakane partially offset by additional resources at the company's development and exploration projects, such as Côté Gold and Boto Gold. As at December 31, 2014, the Company also had attributable inferred resources of 7.0 million ounces.
