16:45 EDTDD, GDI, SPW, PC, NFLX, CRL, ACMP, CHKOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, with only the S&P eking out a gain, after the Federal Reserve announced new quantitative easing plans and set fiscal policy thresholds. The Federal Reserve released the minutes from its December meeting just after noon, and the averages climbed higher on the news, though a broad market sell-off took hold as Fed chairman Ben Bernanke spoke during the last 90 minutes of the trading session. Following the late day selling, the averages went into the close well off their highs, with the Nasdaq serving as the laggard of the group... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., import prices fell more than expected and recorded their biggest drop in five months in November, dropping 0.9%. The Federal Reserve announced it would buy $45B of "longer term" Treasury securities per month after its initial program of buying such securities expires along with continuing to reinvest principal payments from its current holdings into agency mortgage-backed securities. Also, the central bank adopted monetary policy thresholds, saying it expects to keep interest rates exceptionally low "at least as long as" unemployment remains above 6.5% and inflation is projected to be no more than 2.5% in about a two-year time frame... COMPANY NEWS: DuPont (DD) shares rose 61c, or 1.4%, to $44.30 after the company said it expects its adjusted EPS to come in at the high end of its previous forecast and also authorized a repurchase program of $1B... Reuters said SPX Corp. (SPW) has offered more than $4B in a takeover bid for Gardner Denver (GDI), which was "well above" rival offers. Shares of Gardner Denver traded sharply higher following the news, rising $3.49, or 5.02%, to $72.98. Shares of SPX lost 78c, or 1.26%, to close at $61.29... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Panasonic (PC), up 37c, or 7.31%, to $5.43 following an upgrade to Overweight at Barclays. Also higher were shares of Netflix (NFLX), up $4.65, or 5.40%, to $90.73 after Morgan Stanley raised its price target on the stock to $105 from $80. Among the noteworthy losers were shares of Charles River Labs (CRL), down $3.65, or 9.29%, to $35.65 after the company reaffirmed its 2012 guidance and provided guidance for 2013 below Street expectations. Also lower was Access Midstream Partners (ACMP), down $1.88, or 5.52%, to $32.15 after announcing a deal to acquire the midstream assets of Chesapeake Energy (CHK) for $2.16B... INDICES: The Dow was down 2.99, or 0.02%, to 13,245.45; the Nasdaq was down 8.49, or 0.28%, to 3,013.81; and the S&P 500 was up 0.64, or 0.04%, to 1,428.48.
