December 3, 2012
16:19 EDTHMA, DELL, GM, F, QIHU, SVU, QLGCOn 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 managersí 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.

08:28 EDTGMGeneral Motors recalls 10,005 Cadillac CTS-V, STS-V vehicles
General Motors is recalling 10,005 model year 2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V vehicles manufactured October 6, 2003, to March 15, 2007, and 2006-2007 Cadillac STS-V vehicles manufactured June 23, 2005, to March 15, 2007. In the affected vehicles, the electrical terminals of the fuel pump module may overheat resulting in the melting of the flange material. If the flange melts, a hole may be created allowing the fuel pump to leak fuel, causing the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Additionally, leaking fuel in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
