Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, with the Dow and S&P 500 gaining in the second half of the session to close in positive territory. Tech headlines dominated the day, as a Facebook (FB) event at 1 pm ET prompted heavy volume trading of shares of the social network. Aside from Facebook, volume was fairly light again ahead of earnings reports due tomorrow morning from a number of financial giants... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the January Empire State Manufacturing Survey from the New York Fed rose slightly to -7.78 from last month's -8.10 reading, but missed forecasts for a rise to 0.00.

Business inventories grew 0.3% in November, matching expectations... COMPANY NEWS: Facebook unveiled "Graph Search," which will be rolled out in a limited beta test beginning today. The search feature is designed to answer questions in a way particular to the user based on information in their own Facebook feed and those of their friends, but is a supplement, not a replacement, for traditional web searches like Google's (GOOG). In fact, Facebook announced that Microsoft's (MSFT) Bing is a partner in the new tool. Shares of Facebook slipped 85c, or 2.74%, to $30.10 on the day on trading volume nearly three times the stock's average...

Dell (DELL) gained another 88c, or 7.16%, to $13.17 a day after rising on a Bloomberg report that said the company was in talks to go private. A Wall Street Journal report said TPG Capital and Silver Lake Partners are involved in a potential bid for Dell and Reuters added that talks with Silver Lake are in "advanced" stages. Analyst commentary on the possibility of a deal getting done was mixed, though Deutsche Bank said a deal could be done at $15-$16 per share while Jefferies said a deal could be done between $15-$17 per share... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Express (EXPR), up $3.34 or 23.76%, to $17.40 after raising its Q4 and FY12 EPS views, and EnerNOC (ENOC), up $3.20, or 25.48%, to $15.76 following an EPA final ruling on emission control requirements for backup diesel generators. Among the noteworthy losers was Coldwater Creek (CWTR), down $1.13, or 22.60%, to $3.87 after lowering its Q4 EPS view. Also lower were shares of Yelp (YELP), down $1.36, or 6.19%, to $20.61 after Facebook announced its new Graph Search feature...
