16:17 EDTPLCM, STZ, PMTC, RT, ITMN, FB, NYX, BBBY, NDAQOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, as investors largely decided to stay on the sidelines until after the market's long weekend. Stock futures were lower throughout the pre-market trading session and improved only slightly following the Challenger job cuts report. The jobless claims data went generally unnoticed and the futures action led to a lower open for the broader market. The averages made it into positive territory but while the Nasdaq was able to hold its gains the Dow and S&P struggled. The market spent most of the day near the flat line as investors looked toward tomorrow's jobs report, even though the stock markets will be closed... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Challenger job cuts report said planned reductions were down 8.8% versus the same period one year earlier. Initial jobless claims fell to 357,000 last week, versus the expected 355,000. Continuing jobless claims came in at 3.33M, versus expectations for 3.35M... COMPANY NEWS: Reports from The New York Times and CNBC said that Facebook (FB) has selected the Nasdaq (NDAQ) over the New York Stock Exchange (NYX) as the future home of its stock... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were InterMune (ITMN), up $1.41, or 10.17%, to $15.28, following a favorable opinion for the reimbursement of its Esbriet drug from the Transparency Commission of the French National Health Authority, and Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), up $5.62, or 8.49%, to $71.85, after its earnings, revenue and same store sales growth all topped its own forecasts. Noteworthy losers included Parametric Technology (PMTC), down $5.74, or 21.10%, to $21.46, and Polycom (PLCM), down $3.63, or 19.96%, to $14.56, after both issued forecasts that disappointed. Also lower were shares of Ruby Tuesday (RT), down $1.61, or 18.13%, to $7.27, and Constellation Brands (STZ), down $3.08, or 12.47%, to $21.61, as both reported earnings above consensus estimates but issued guidance below the Street's expectations... INDICES: The Dow lost 14.61, or 0.11%, to 13,060.14; the Nasdaq gained 12.41, or 0.40%, to 3,080.50; and the S&P 500 fell 0.88, or 0.06%, to 1,398.08.

17:54 EDTFBFacebook to expand use of 'Safety Check' feature in wake of Paris attacks
Facebook announced it will be expanding its use of "Safety Check," a feature allowing users of the social network who live in endangered areas of the world to let friends and family know they are safe. Traditionally limited to natural disasters, the policy change has been made in the wake of the terrorist attacks on Paris, France, during which the company turned on Safety Check for affected users. The move spurred both praise for quick action and criticism for not using the feature during other serious events such as Thursday's tragedy in Beirut, prompting Facebook to reconsider its use of the service. "Each time we have launched the tool, we've improved it... We are learning to make the tool and policies behind it better as we go -- and because Safety Check is a relatively new feature for us, we're still understanding how it can best be used... We talked with our employees on the ground, who felt that there was still a need that we could fill. So we made the decision to try something we've never done before: activating Safety Check for something other than a natural disaster... We want this tool to be available whenever and wherever it can help," explained the company.
