17:04 EDTITCOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
After seeing an early-morning jump, stocks on Wall Street spent Monday's trading session generally lower amid a glut of reports on Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales trends as well as weaker than expected financial data on manufacturing and home sales. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago purchasing managers' index dropped 7.5 points to 48.7 in November, coming in much worse than the expected 54.0 reading. Pending home sales for October, meanwhile, rose 0.2% from the prior month, lower than the forecasted 1% monthly increase. The Dallas Fed's manufacturing index rose 7.8 points to -4.9 in November, which was better than the anticipated -10.0 reading. The National Retail Federation said that about 151M people say they shopped in-store or on-line over the past four days, compared with 136M who said in a mid-November survey that they planned to shop over the holiday period. Also, as expected, the International Monetary Fund Monday added the Chinese yuan to the the fund's basket of reserve currencies, joining the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen and the British pound. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Amazon (AMZN) spiked momentarily on Monday morning amid media reports that the company was seeing a strong start to the holiday sales season, with ChannelAdvisor reporting same-store sales growth of above 20% for the e-commerce giant over Black Friday and the rest of the long Thanksgiving weekend. By session close, however, the shares gave up their early gains, falling 1.26% to $664.80. Meanwhile, Target (TGT) slipped 1.28% to $72.50 as shoppers visiting the company's website in search of Cyber Monday deals encountered intermittent delays, which the company pinned on record sales volumes. Fellow retailer Wal-Mart (WMT) dipped 1.70% to $58.87, while specialty names Express (EXPR), Urban Outfitters (URBN), and Guess? (GES) fell a respective 5.48%, 5.29%, and 6.68%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were a number of renewable fuel companies, with Pacific Ethanol (PEIX) and Renewable Energy Group (REGI) advancing a respective 21.12% and 6.50% after the EPA finalized its biofuel targets. Petroleum refiners HollyFrontier (HFC) and Tesoro (TSO) slipped 3.30% and 1.74%, respectively, following the news, while oil majors Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) closed the day up a respective 0.69% and 1.24%. Also higher was ITC Holdings (ITC), which jumped $3.11, or 9.21%, to $36.86 following a Bloomberg report that the company is exploring a potential sale. Separately, Microsoft (MSFT) rose 42c, or 0.78%, to $54.35 after research firm Raymond James upgraded the company two notches to Strong Buy from Hold, predicting that the tech giant will become one of the few large scale cloud vendors that can succeed across the industry's various segments. Among the noteworthy losers was Lockheed Martin (LMT), which declined $6.65, or 2.94%, to $219.26 after Barclays downgraded the shares to Underweight from Equal Weight, saying it "doesn't make sense" to expect further outperformance from the defense major. Also lower was Under Armour (UA), which fell $3.43, or 3.82%, to $86.25 after Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy cut her price target on the stock following visits to malls and retailers Thanksgiving night, reportedly finding evidence of deeper discounts than last year. Additionally, Lululemon (LULU) lost 8.91% to $47.82 after being downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at FBR Capital after the research firm discovered "significantly higher" clearance levels on company products in-store and online. INDEXES: The Dow fell 78.57, or 0.44%, to 17,719.92, the Nasdaq lost 18.86, or 0.37%, to 5,108.67, and the S&P 500 slipped 9.70, or 0.46%, to 2,080.41.
