Stocks on Wall Street were lower for much of the morning before recovering significantly near midday. Just as a late day sell-off yesterday was prompted by some cautious fiscal cliff commentary from a notable politician, today's turn-around was sparked by optimism from one. In today's case, the averages turned following comments from House Speaker John Boehner, who said he's "optimistic" a deal with Obama can be reached and that he is willing to put revenues on the table if accompanied by spending cuts... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., new single-family home sales fell 0.3% in October to a seasonally adjusted 368,000-unit annual rate. Also, the government revised sharply lower its estimate for the prior month's sales, cutting its estimate for sales in September by 20,000 to a 369,000-unit rate. The EIA reported crude oil inventories drew down by 347,000 barrels last week, versus expectations for a 350,000 barrel build up. In Europe, Spainís bank restructuring was approved, paving the way for euro zone aid to be disbursed... COMPANY NEWS: The Environmental Protection Agency announced BP (BP) will be suspended from winning new contracts from the federal government until the oil major can demonstrate it meets business standards set by the U.S., though the action does not affect existing contracts. Shares of BP fell about 0.7% near noon... Several apparel retailers reported better than expected results and saw their shares advance, including Express (EXPR), American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) and Ann Inc. (ANN).

Costco (COST) shares rose over 4% after reporting its November same store sales rose 6% and declaring a $7 per share special dividend... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR), which soared 24% after its better than expected earnings and guidance set off a wave of price target increases around the Street. Also higher were shares of Knight Capital (KCG), which rose 14% to $3.39 after shareholder Getco proposed a complex takeover bid that values shares at $3.50 apiece but involves a cash component and a share dispersal following a merger. Among the noteworthy losers was The Fresh Market (TFM), down 14% after its CFO unexpectedly resigned to take another position and its shares were downgraded at Deutsche Bank and Northcoast. Also lower were shares of Jos. A Bank (JOSB), down 7% after it was unable to participate in the rally among clothing retailers as its revenue beat consensus but its earnings fell short... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 16.36, or 0.13%, to 12,894.49; the Nasdaq was down 2.31, or 0.08%, to 2,965.48; and the S&P 500 was down 0.88, or 0.06%, to 1,398.06.
