12:20 EDTDISOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in relatively quiet fashion and trading has remained that way throughout the morning. The highly anticipated nonfarm payrolls report showed fewer than expected jobs were added last month, but the figures from the prior two months were also upwardly revised. The market has moved in a narrow range and for the most part has remained near the flat line, with the S&P and Dow little changed and the Nasdaq lagging near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., nonfarm payrolls rose 214K in October, which was below the consensus estimate for 235K jobs to have been added. However, back revisions boosted September's job gain to 256K from the 248K previously reported, while August's prior 180K reading was pushed up to 203K. The unemployment rate slid to 5.8% from 5.9%, its lowest level since July 2008. Later this afternoon, the Federal Reserve Board’s report on consumer credit growth in September is expected, with total credit projected to grow $16B. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Disney (DIS) led all decliners on the Dow, as the stock fell 2.5% after the company reported earnings and revenue for its fourth quarter that were nearly in-line with consensus estimates. Along with its report, the company confirmed 2015's Star Wars movie will be entitled "The Force Awakens" and announced plans for another sequel in the "Toy Story" franchise. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was ChannelAdvisor (ECOM), which rose 46% after delivering generally in-line Q3 results, giving better than expected fiscal year revenue guidance and announcing the acquisition of U.K. based E-Tale Holdings. Also higher were shares of Sears Holdings (SHLD), which jumped 26% after the company disclosed it is actively exploring a REIT transaction involving 200-300 owned properties through a rights offering to shareholders. Among the noteworthy losers was Salix (SLXP), which plunged 36% and was downgraded by at least four firms after the company reported worse than expected Q3 results, gave lower than expected guidance and announced its CFO had resigned amid the company revising its view of the current inventory levels for its drugs. Also lower were shares of Intercept Pharmaceuticals (ICPT), which fell 33% after results from the FLINT trial evaluating obeticholic acid, or OCA, for the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, or NASH, were published in The Lancet. Oppenheimer said it believes that data disclosed last night was in-line with previous data from Intercept, but that a Bloomberg story "cherry picked" negative aspects of the data, contributing to the share decline. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was virtually unchanged at 17,555.12, the Nasdaq was down 13.72, or 0.3%, to 4,624.75, and the S&P 500 was up 0.42, or 0.02%, to 2,031.63.
