12:38 EDTDDD, SSYS, MRK, GOOG, CVS, MYGN, USNA, BIRTOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday after ADP reported that dismal weather in January put a damper on private sector hiring. The market seemed indecisive in the opening 30 minutes of trading, but soon picked up downside momentum. The Nasdaq, which was down more than 1% early in the session, has trimmed its losses and the Dow has moved into positive ground, though just barely. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., payroll company ADP reported that 175,000 service jobs were created in January, versus the expectations for 185,000 net new positions to have been added. The ISM services index rose to 54.0 in January from December's 53.0 reading, which was a bit ahead of expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Dow component Merck (MRK) advanced fractionally after the drug company’s quarterly results were generally in-line with expectations and it also announced three clinical collaboration agreements to evaluate its investigational anti-PD-1 immunotherapy… Shares of Google (GOOG) are advancing in a down market after the search giant reached a settlement with European Union regulators over antitrust allegations and research firm Bernstein hiked its price target on the stock to $1,500 from $1,350... CVS Caremark (CVS) announced plans to cease selling all tobacco products, including cigarettes, at all its locations starting October 1. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was multi-level-marketer USANA Health Sciences (USNA), which rose 17% after its results and guidance beat expectations. Also higher were shares of molecular diagnostic company Myriad Genetics (MYGN), which climbed over 11% after the company reported second quarter results that beat consensus expectations, raised its fiscal 2014 outlook, and announced the acquisition of Crescendo Bioscience. Among the noteworthy losers was 3D Systems (DDD), which plunged 16% after the maker of 3D printers and supplies lowered its profit outlook for the current fiscal year and guided to earnings next year below the consensus estimate. A number of 3D Systems’ peers fell as well, with the next biggest company in the sector, Stratasys (SSYS), also declining 3%. Also lower were shares of Actuate (BIRT), which slid about 17% after reporting earnings, announcing the acquisition of German software developer legodo ag and being downgraded at Drexel Hamilton. INDICES: Near midday, the Dow was up 13.12, or 0.08%, to 15,458.36; the Nasdaq was down 13.59, or 0.34%, to 4,017.93; and the S&P 500 was down 2.14, or 0.12%, to 1,753.06.
