12:13 EDTHMA, VRSN, TM, DELL, IOSP, DECK, F, TPCG, FIATY, GMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, as were the global manufacturing reports. Chinese manufacturing returned to growth in November for the first time in over a year and the deep downturn in euro zone factories eased. However, the U.S. manufacturing data for November was below expectations, leading the market to pare its early session gains... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the ISM November manufacturing purchasing managers’ index, or PMI, slid to 49.5, reflecting contraction, from a 51.7 prior reading. Analysts expected a reading of 51.4, which reflects expansion. 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 rose to 50.5 in November, the first time since October 2011 that it had topped the line that separates growth from contraction. A similar survey out Saturday from the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics rose to a seven-month high of 50.6. In Europe, manufacturing activity contracted for the ninth consecutive month in November, but at a slower pace. Markit's final euro-zone PMI rose to 46.2 from 45.4 in October, unchanged from its preliminary reading... COMPANY NEWS: Dell (DELL) shares jumped nearly 6% after Goldman upgraded the stock two notches, from a Sell rating to a Buy, citing lowered expectations that the company may outperform and its strong cash position... November auto sales rose to what may be the highest annual sales rate since February 2008. General Motors (GM) sold 186,505 vehicles, up 3.4%, while Ford (F) sales rose 6.5% to 177,673 units, Toyota Motor (TM) U.S. sales increased 17% to 161,695 units and Chrysler (FIATY) sales gained 14% to 122,565 units... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Deckers Outdoor (DECK), up 7% following an upgrade to Buy at Sterne Agee, and VeriSign (VRSN), up over 6% after a positive mention in this weekend's Barron's. Among the noteworthy losers was TPC Group (TPCG), which fell about 7% after Innospec (IOSP) withdrew its acquisition proposal. Also lower were shares of Health Management (HMA), down almost 5% after a negative mention in a "60 Minutes" report and a downgrade at CRT Capital... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 10.26, or 0.08%, to 13,015.32; the Nasdaq was up 6.26, or 0.21%, to 3,016.50; and the S&P 500 was up 1.25, or 0.09%, to 1,417.43.
