16:17 EDTSTZ, PMTC, RT, PLCM, FB, NYX, BBBY, NDAQ, ITMNOn 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.
