12:38 EDTDVAX, PCS, SODA, DIS, CQB, BBBY, TM, DTEGY, CPWM, MOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday, but the major averages were well off the lows seen about an hour into trading. The market is down for the sixth consecutive session, its longest losing string of the year. The weakness is being attributed to concern about the fate of the euro zone as a new leader takes over in France and Greece struggles to form a government and may need to hold another round of elections. The past several sessions have seen the market open lower but rally during the later hours of the session to reduce the day's losses. So far today that trend is continuing as the averages have recovered significantly from their worst levels... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., wholesale inventories rose 0.3% in March, versus the expected increase of 0.6%. In Europe, Spanish 10-year bond yields rose above 6% and more reports indicated that efforts to form a new government in Greece were expected to fail, putting the country's bailout deal in doubt and renewing concerns about Greece intentionally exiting or being forced off the euro. A Reuters report, citing EU sources, said the EU is more likely than not to agree to the latest EUR 5.2B bailout payment due tomorrow to Greece from the EFSF bailout fund, which may have contributed to a late morning rally seen here in the States... COMPANY NEWS: Disney (DIS) shares gained over 2% after its earnings beat expectations, while Macy's (M) slid more than 3% in spite of earnings that also came in above consensus... Toyota (TM) reported a surge in its Q4 net income and forecast a doubling of profits in the current fiscal year, sending its stock up more than 3%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were SodaStream (SODA), up over 26%, after it reported much stronger than expected results and boosted its 2012 guidance, and Cost Plus (CPWM), up about 22%, after agreeing to be acquired by Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) for $22 per share. Also higher were shares of MetroPCS (PCS), up about 19%, after Bloomberg reported Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) was said to be in talks with the company on a potential T-Mobile deal. Noteworthy losers included Chiquita Brands (CQB), down 32%, after its earnings fell short of consensus and it warned that it sees 2012 continuing to be "a challenging year," and Dynavax (DVAX), down more than 22%, after pricing 17.5M shares at $4.25 in a secondary stock offering... INDICES: Near 12:30 pm ET, the Dow was down 98.05, or 0.76%, to 12,834.04; the Nasdaq was down 17.19, or 0.58%, to 2,929.08; and the S&P 500 was down 9.58, or 0.70%, to 1,354.14.
