16:35 EDTSWIR, NTGR, EMC, VMW, VLO, DHI, KERX, HES, LLY, PFE, FOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed as the Dow closed only 200 or so points away from a high it has not reached since October 2007. A less-than-stellar consumer confidence reading for January stalled the advance early in the session, but the averages all rebounded and closed at or near their best levels of the day, though the Nasdaq was unable to hold in positive ground... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the November S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city Home-Prices Index was up a seasonally adjusted 0.6% from the prior month, versus expectations for a 0.7% increase. On a year-over-year basis, the 20-city index rose 5.5%, which was nearly in-line with consensus. The Consumer Confidence reading for January fell to 58.6, versus expectations for a smaller decline to 64.0... COMPANY NEWS: Ford (F) reported quarterly results that beat expectations on both the top and bottom lines. However, concerns over Europe, where the company said it expects to lose about $2B in 2013, sent shares down 64c, or 4.64%, to $13.14... Pharma giants Pfizer (PFE) and Eli Lilly (LLY) both reported earnings that beat consensus estimates before the market opened and both rallied. Dow-member Pfizer led that index with a 3.2%, or 86c, advance to $27.70, while Lilly gained $1.68, or 3.19%, to $54.32... MAJOR MOVERS: Higher for the second straight day were shares of Hess (HES), up $5.63, or 9.01%, to $68.11 after gaining over 6% yesterday, and Keryx Biopharmaceuticals (KERX), up $2.30, or 38.01%, to $8.36 today after rising over 76% yesterday. Also higher after earnings reports were DR Horton (DHI), which gained $2.51, or 11.78%, to $23.82, and Valero (VLO), which added $4.96, or 12.78%, to $43.77. Among the noteworthy losers was VMware (VMW), down $21.18, or 21.54%, to $77.14 after its guidance disappointed the Street and the stock was downgraded by numerous firms. EMC (EMC), which holds a majority ownership stake in VMware and also reported last night, also lost $1.02, or 4.05%, to $24.18. Also lower were shares of NetGear (NTGR), down $4.45, or 10.9%, to $36.38 after agreeing to acquire Sierra Wireless's (SWIR) AirCard business assets for $138M in cash. Sierra Wireless (SWIR) advanced $1.69, or 18.45%, to $10.85 after the news... INDICES: The Dow was up 72.49, or 0.52%, to 13,954.42; the Nasdaq was down 0.64, or 0.02%, to 3,153.66; and the S&P 500 was up 7.66, or 0.51%, to 1,507.84.

12:33 EDTFOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher to begin the day, as reports spurred optimism that a ceasefire agreement between Russia and the Ukraine may soon be reached. The move was short lived, as the averages turned mixed during the second hour of trading. Shares of Apple (AAPL) are weighing down the Nasdaq after an analyst recommended investors take some profits in the stock. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., factory orders rose 10.5% in July, which was a bit below the forecast for 11.0% growth. The Fed's Beige Book is scheduled to be released at 2:00 pm ET. In Europe, the final reading of Eurozone services PMI was knocked down to 53.1 from a preliminary 53.5 reading, mirroring the lowering of the Eurozone manufacturing PMI reading yesterday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple retreated 4% after research firm Pacific Crest advised investors to take some profits in the stock. Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves forecast the percentage of new iPhone users who buy the next version of the device beyond the iPhone 6 is likely to decline versus prior cycles. The stock likely has only limited room to increase, according to Hargreaves, who said he would probably downgrade Apple unless new products that can generate billions of dollars in new operating profit are launched at its September 9 event... Carmakers reported on August vehicle sales in the U.S., with Chrysler (FIATY) reporting a 20% increase, Ford stating that sales rose slightly compared to the prior year and General Motors (GM) posting a 1.2% decline in sales. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Infinity Pharmaceuticals (INFI), which jumped 46% after the company announced a cancer drug collaboration with AbbVie (ABBV) and a master clinical supply agreement with Roche (RHHBY). Also higher was Mobileye (MBLY), which gained nearly 10% after Morgan Stanley wrote that the stock could rise "towards $100" if the company maintains its current market, gross margins and earnings position. Mobileye is scheduled to report on its second quarter results tomorrow morning, which will be its first quarterly report since its August IPO. Among the noteworthy losers was Repros Therapeutics (RPRX), which dropped 15% after newly posted FDA briefing documents regarding a panel on T-normalizing therapies prompted Piper Jaffray to downgrade the stock to Neutral from Overweight. Also lower following its earnings report was apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell 11%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 33.71, or 0.2%, to 17,101.27, the Nasdaq was down 23.24, or 0.51%, to 4,574.95, and the S&P 500 was down 0.64, or 0.03%, to 2,001.64.
