12:08 EDTXOM, TZYM, MTU, PCBC, ZOLL, DANG, KUTV, RENN, YOKU, TUDO, DISOn The Fly: Mid-Day Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at mid-day, with the Dow higher and the Nasdaq lower, but neither by a wide margin. The Dow is being led by the shares of Exxon Mobil (XOM), which are up more than 1.3% despite oil being down more than $1.00 a barrel. The averages have moved in a narrow range in a low-volatility, low-volume session. Investors are looking to tomorrow's FOMC meeting for clues as to any change in the Fed's strategy... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was light today, but will be heavier the rest of the week, with reports due on retail sales, consumer sentiment and small business optimism along with a rate meeting for the FOMC. With little domestic data, investors focused on international news, most notably China's February trade deficit of $31.5B, which was its largest in over 20 years... MARKET NEWS: Disney's (DIS) expensive sci-fi film "John Carter" opened to disappointing domestic grosses, as widely expected... Tudou Holdings (TUDO) jumped almost 150% following its acquisition by Youku.com (YOKU), which also saw its shares rise about 18%. Other Chinese media and tech names also traded higher following the news, with Renren (RENN), Ku6 Media (KUTV), and Dangdang (DANG) among those advancing... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were ZOLL Medical (ZOLL), after agreeing to a $93 per share buyout offer from Asahi Kasei, and Pacific Capital Bancorp (PCBC), which agreed to be acquired for $46 per share by UnionBanCal, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial (MTU). Noteworthy losers included Tranzyme (TZYM), after saying a Phase 3 trial of one of its drugs failed to meet its endpoints, and Anthera Pharmaceuticals (ANTH), following downgrades at Citigroup and Cowen after one of its trials was halted due to the lack of the drug's efficacy... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 14.15, or 0.11%, to 12,936.17; the Nasdaq was down 11.15, or 0.37%, to 2,977.19; and the S&P 500 was down 3.34, or 0.24%, to 1,367.53.
