12:50 EDTSHLD, PENN, DVAX, DELL, OMXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday as meetings in Washington offered hope that a compromise on the fiscal cliff may emerge. The averages began the session slightly higher but quickly crossed back into negative territory. The economic reports released today were generally benign. Investors took some solace from encouraging commentary about compromise coming out of D.C. and the averages all crossed back into positive ground near noon...

COMPANY NEWS: Dell (DELL) shares fell 6.5% after its quarterly results missed estimates on both the top and bottom lines and the company called the global demand environment for its core PC business especially "challenging"... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Penn National (PENN), up 30% after announcing its intent to separate its gaming operating assets and real property assets into two publicly traded companies. Also higher were shares of OfficeMax (OMX), up 20% after Boise Cascade, in which it holds a stake, filed to go public via an initial public offering of stock. Among the noteworthy losers was Dynavax (DVAX), down 46% after an FDA advisory committee voted that there was insufficient data to adequately support the safety of its Heplisav vaccine. Also lower were shares of Sears Holdings (SHLD), down 18% after its quarterly report...

11:17 EDTSHLDSears to have about 1,700 Sears, Kmart stores in operation going into 2015
On a company blog post, Sears CEO Eddie Lampert said: "At our most recent Town Hall meeting with our associates, I explained that I want us to operate our stores both profitably and with excellence. Both, not just one or the other.This is the background behind our decision to close more than 200 Kmart and Sears stores in 2014. Most of these stores were losing money, some for a long time. Because of the impact on our dedicated associates and our Shop Your Way members, these decisions were not taken lightly, or without our working to improve the performance of these stores over many years. Going into 2015, we will have approximately 1,700 Sears and Kmart big box stores in operation, representing about 200 million square feet of space." Reference Link
