16:19 EDTHMA, QIHU, DELL, QLGC, F, SVU, GMOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street finished lower as some mixed economic data from the U.S. and abroad tempered investor enthusiasm. After a moderately higher open, fueled by positive news from China, the market drifted steadily lower through the session. Late day reports broke of a counter-offer being made by House Republicans regarding the fiscal cliff, though the news didn't move the averages as sharply as similar news has in recent days... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the ISM November manufacturing purchasing managers’ index, or PMI, slid to 49.5, reflecting contraction, versus expectations for a 51.4 reading. Construction spending for the month of October increased 1.4%, versus an expected 0.5% rise. In Asia, the final reading of the HSBC China manufacturing PMI for November rose to 50.5 and a similar survey from the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics rose to a seven-month high of 50.6. In Europe, manufacturing activity contracted again but at a slower pace, as Markit's final November euro-zone PMI rose to 46.2 from 45.4 in October... COMPANY NEWS: Dell (DELL) shares opened sharply higher after Goldman upgraded the stock two notches, from Sell to Buy, though shares lost a little steam during the session. Dell finished the day up 42c, or 4.36%, to $10.06... November auto sales rose to what may be their highest annualized rate since February 2008, though General Motors' (GM) 3.4% increase missed expectations. Meanwhile, Ford's (F) November sales rose a better than expected 6.5%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Qihoo 360 (QIHU), up $2.45, or 9.80%, to $27.44 after Stifel Nicolaus said the company launched a music and a map vertical search engine. Also higher were shares of Supervalu (SVU), up 30c, or 12.61%, to $2.68 after a weekend report from the Wall Street Journal said Cerberus Capital would explore multiple options in its bid for the company. Among noteworthy losers was QLogic (QLGC), down 73c, or 7.70%, to $8.75 after the stock was downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman. Also lower were shares of Health Management (HMA), down 45c, or 5.66%, to $7.50 after a negative mention in a "60 Minutes" report and a downgrade at CRT Capital, though the stock was defended or recommended by at least four other firms... INDICES: The Dow was down 59.98, or 0.46%, to 12,965.60; the Nasdaq was down 8.04, or 0.27%, to 3,002.20; and the S&P 500 was down 6.72, or 0.47%, to 1,409.46.
