12:50 EDTOMX, SHLD, PENN, DVAX, DELLOn 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... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., industrial production unexpectedly declined 0.4% in October, compared to forecasts for a 0.2% gain, though the Fed said that Superstorm Sandy cut total production by almost 1 percentage point... 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... INDICES: The Dow was up 40.82, or 0.33%, to 12,583.20; the Nasdaq was up 15.48, or 0.55%, to 2,852.42; and the S&P 500 was up 6.36, or 0.47%, to 1,359.69.

06:44 EDTSHLDSears says targeting REIT formation in May or June
Sears said "We are continuing our efforts to develop Sears Holdings as a membership company, without the significant asset intensity of its traditional retail business. To this end, we announced in November that we have been exploring the formation of a Real Estate Investment Trust to purchase some of our properties and to manage them like a pure real estate company. While we can offer no assurances that such a transaction will be consummated, we have made progress and are proceeding towards its formation and separation, which is projected to occur in May or June of this year. We are currently targeting between 200 and 300 Sears and Kmart stores to be sold to the REIT with expected proceeds to Sears Holdings in excess of $2B. The REIT itself would be funded by equity and debt with the equity raised through a rights offering. The subscription rights would be distributed pro rata to all stockholders of record of the company, and every stockholder would have the right to participate, except that holders of the company's restricted stock that is unvested as of the record date would be expected to receive cash awards in lieu of subscription rights."

07:08 EDTPENNPenn National upgraded at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded Penn National to Buy from Neutral. The firm views Penn National as the regional stock to own for a segment recovery and notes January 2015 gross gaming revenues had the biggest increase since 2006 and February is tracking strong. This, and improving low end consumer commentary at other operators and easy comps, makes risk-reward more favorable. Price target raised to $20 from $17.
