The NAHB Housing Market Index had a 20 reading, beating expectations of 18. The DOE report on energy inventories showed that crude inventories dropped by 1.06M barrels, versus the consensus of a 1.20M draw. Gasoline inventories built by 992K barrels, versus the forecast of a 1.00M barrel draw. From Europe, the European Central Bank was believed to have bought Spanish and Italian bonds, though yields on both continue to be very high despite the intervention. Also, in Greece, the country's new Prime Minister passed his first test, winning a confidence vote. In Asia, Japan's central bank lowered its assessment of its economy and kept its key interest rate at virtually zero... MARKET NEWS: An announcement from Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) and Enbridge (ENB) that they would seek regulatory permission to reverse the direction of crude oil flows on the Seaway pipeline sent oil prices higher and the share prices of refiners lower... Target (TGT) reported Q3 adjusted EPS of 87c, soundly beating analyst estimates. Dell (DELL) reported Q3 earnings above estimates, but revenue fell below expectations as the company gave up “low-value” PC opportunities to preserve margins. Among others reporting, winners included Autodesk (ADSK) and Tyco (TYC); losers included Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) and Agilent (A)... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Tessera Technologies (TSRA), following Samsung Electronics exercising its renewal option in a license agreement with the company, and Pacific Ethanol (PEIX), after the company announced that it has retired in full its $35M senior convertible notes. Noteworthy losers included Zoom Technologies (ZOOM), after its Q3 revenue missed estimates and the company cut its FY11 revenue view, and Unilife (UNIS), which priced a 8.25M share secondary offering at $4.35... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 77.91, or 0.64%, to 12,018.25; the Nasdaq was down 16.23, or 0.60%, to 2,669.97; and the S&P 500 was down 7.65, or 0.61%, to 1,250.16.
