17:00 EDTHRL, EBAY, SHLDOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in lackluster fashion as the averages opened just above yesterday’s close. There was little early reaction to the morning’s economic reports including the jobless claims data, Philadelphia Fed report, leading economic indicators, and natural gas storage change report. But by mid-day, the Dow had asserted itself as the day’s leader while the Nasdaq struggled to stain positive territory. As the afternoon progressed the Dow continued its advance, the Nasdaq hit 14-year highs, and the S&P also touched a new all-time high. ECONOMIC EVENTS: Jobless Claims data continues to trend lower, with the week of August 16 coming in at 298K vs. a consensus of 300K... The PMI Manufacturing Index Flash was strong at 58.0 for August, up 1.7 points from the July flash of 56.3. COMPANY NEWS: eBay (EBAY) rose almost 5% after a report said that a PayPal spin-off was under consideration... Hormel (HRL) gained almost 5% and hit a 52-week high after reporting better than expected earnings before the market opened... Sears Holding (SHLD) fell over 7% after reporting Q2 earnings this morning that missed on the top and bottom lines. INDEXES: The Dow closed up 60.36, or 0.36%, to 17,039.49, the Nasdaq closed up 5.62, or 0.12%, to 4,532.10, and the S&P 500 closed up 5.86, or 0.29%%, to 1,992.37.

11:04 EDTSHLDFAA proposes $533,000 civil penalty against Sears Holdings
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration proposes a $533,000 civil penalty against Sears Holdings Management Corp. for allegedly violating Hazardous Materials Regulations. The FAA alleges that Sears on Dec. 20, 2012 offered UPS 27 boxes, each containing one DieHard Portable Power Supply that encased a non-spillable battery, for air transportation to various locations in the United States. Workers at the UPS sort facility in Louisville, Ky., discovered six of the corrosive shipments were vibrating and one was warm to the touch. The FAA alleges that Sears failed to package the batteries in accordance with the Hazardous Materials Regulations to prevent unintentional activation. The agency also alleges the shipment was not accompanied by shipping papers to indicate the hazardous nature of its contents, and was not marked or labeled. Additionally, Sears offered the shipment without providing emergency response information and failed to ensure its employees had received required hazardous materials training, the FAA alleges. Sears has 30 days from the receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
