12:24 EDTBIOL, GME, RS, CFX, BIIB, MUSA, CHRW, MSFT, ELN, AFL, RL, SFLY, TWX, ZNGA, DISOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
The Wall Street averages were nearly unchanged at midday in a session of relative calm and consolidation following three straight days in which the Dow experienced triple digit moves... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S. the economic calendar was light, though the Department of Energy did report that crude supplies grew by 2.62M barrels, roughly in-line with forecasts. In Japan, the governor of its central bank offered to step down three weeks before the end of his term, fueling speculation that accelerated and more aggressive stimulus measures may follow and sparking a 3.8% run-up in the Nikkei average. In Europe, German industrial orders climbed 0.8% in December as demand from the euro zone rebounded... COMPANY NEWS: Dow component Walt Disney (DIS) rose 1% after reporting quarterly earnings and revenue that beat analyst estimates. Among others reporting last night and this morning, Time Warner (TWX), Ralph Lauren (RL), Zynga (ZNGA) and Shutterfly (SFLY) advanced, while Aflac (AFL), C.H. Robinson (CHRW) and Colfax (CFX) declined... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were BIOLASE (BIOL), which rose 31% after receiving FDA clearance for a soft tissue laser device, and Metals USA (MUSA), which gained 13% after agreeing to be acquired by Reliance Steel (RS) for $20.65 per share. Among the noteworthy losers was Elan (ELN), which fell 9% after agreeing to sell its 50% interest in the Tysabri MS drug to Biogen (BIIB) for $3.25B in cash and future royalty payments. Also lower were shares of GameStop (GME), which slid nearly 7% following a report suggesting the next version of Microsoft's (MSFT) Xbox system will not allow used games to be resold... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 2.26, or 0.02%, to 13,977.04; the Nasdaq was up 2.39, or 0.08%, to 3,173.97; and the S&P 500 was up 0.92, or 0.06%, to 1,512.21.
