12:39 EDTSTMP, ANF, IAG, CSCO, FBOn 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.

06:30 EDTFBFacebook says reducing 'overly promotional' page posts in news feed
Facebook said on Friday that "Our goal with News Feed has always been to show people the things they want to see. That’s why we often look to people on Facebook to tell us how we can improve. As part of an ongoing survey we asked hundreds of thousands of people how they feel about the content in their News Feeds. People told us they wanted to see more stories from friends and Pages they care about, and less promotional content. What we discovered is that a lot of the content people see as too promotional is posts from Pages they like, rather than ads. This may seem counterintuitive but it actually makes sense: News Feed has controls for the number of ads a person sees and for the quality of those ads, but those same controls haven’t been as closely monitored for promotional Page posts. Now we’re bringing new volume and content controls for promotional posts, so people see more of what they want from Pages.... Beginning in January 2015, people will see less of this type of content in their News Feeds. This change will not increase the number of ads people see in their News Feeds. The idea is to increase the relevance and quality of the overall stories – including Page posts – people see in their News Feeds. This change is about giving people the best Facebook experience possible and being responsive to what they have told us. While Pages that post a lot of the content we mention above will see a significant decrease in distribution, the majority of Pages will not be impacted by this change." Reference Link
