12:22 EDTVRA, AKAM, ZNGA, AAPL, ALGN, T, DBOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday as jobless claims came back down a bit from their storm-driven elevated levels. The market opened slightly lower as the S&P and Nasdaq were once again weighed down by Apple's (AAPL) stock continuing yesterday's descent. As Apple pared its losses and moved back into positive ground so did the Nasdaq, making the index the morning's biggest winner with an increase of over 0.6%... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 25,000 to 370,000, versus expectations for claims to fall to 380,000. Also, Challenger, Gray & Christmas reported that planned layoffs were up 34% in November compared to the prior year. In Europe, the European Central Bank and Bank of England both kept their benchmark interest rates unchanged and did not announce new stimulus measures. The ECB also lowered its growth and inflation forecasts for 2013... COMPANY NEWS: Three former Deutsche Bank (DB) employees told U.S. regulators that the bank hid as much as $12B in losses during the financial crisis, according to The Financial Times, though the company disputed the allegations... Apple, which is always in focus as such a large component of the Nasdaq 100, managed to dominate the spotlight for a second day in a row after CEO Tim Cook said the company will produce one of its existing lines of Macs in the U.S. next year... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Akamai (AKAM), up over 9% after announcing a partnership with AT&T (T), and Zynga (ZNGA), up nearly 8% after the Wall Street Journal reported the company has filed paperwork in Nevada for real money games. Among the noteworthy losers were Vera Bradley (VRA), down 12% after its guidance missed estimates, and Align Technology (ALGN), down about 5% after saying it now expects EPS and revenue for it current quarter to come in at the lower end of its previous guidance... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 8.98, or 0.07%, to 13,043.47; the Nasdaq was up 18.29, or 0.62%, to 2,991.99; and the S&P 500 was up 2.48, or 0.18%, to 1,411.76.

12:43 EDTTAT&T issues statement on White House Title II announcement
AT&T issued the following statement in response to the White House's announcement regarding Title II. AT&T executive VP Jim Cicconi said, "Today’s announcement by the White House, if acted upon by the FCC, would be a mistake that will do tremendous harm to the Internet and to U.S. national interests. It is a complete reversal of a bipartisan policy that has been in place since the Clinton Administration—namely, to treat Internet access as an information service subject to light-touch regulation. This classification of Internet service has been upheld by the Supreme Court and has enjoyed strong Congressional support for nearly a generation. Now, with one statement, the White House is telling the FCC to ignore this precedent and to instead impose on the entire Internet—from end to end—onerous government regulation designed in the 1930s for a Bell phone monopoly that no longer exists, not for a 21st century technology. This will have a negative impact not only on investment and innovation, but also on our economy overall. For a generation, the Internet has been an American success story. Light-touch regulation has encouraged levels of investment unprecedented by any industry and spawned incredible innovation. Today’s action puts all of that at risk—and puts it at risk not to remedy any specific harm that has occurred. Instead, this action is designed to deal with a hypothetical problem posed by certain political groups whose objective all along has been to bring about government control of the Internet. The White House is proposing to put the Internet and our economy at risk as a result of such political pressures. We feel the actions called for by the White House are inconsistent with decades of legal precedent as well as Congressional intent. Moreover, if the government were going to make such a momentous decision as regulating the entire Internet like a public utility, that decision is more properly made by the Congress and not by unelected regulators without any public record to support the change in regulation. If the FCC puts such rules in place, we would expect to participate in a legal challenge to such action.”
