12:49 EDTUNS, ORCL, IAG, BA, JDSU, LULU, XLS, ANF, MHK, FB, ADS, TEROn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower again at midday, as the averages appear to be continuing their "good economic news is bad news" trend. Stocks began the session in positive territory, as the initial reaction was to push the market higher following jobless claims data and retail sales figures. However, concern over when the Fed would begin its tapering again kept the market from gaining any upside momentum. Early in the session the averages slipped into negative ground, where they remained near midday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., jobless claims rose to 368K last week from 300K in the week before, which was higher than the consensus forecast of 325K. Retail sales rose 0.7% in November, versus the expected increase of 0.6%. The core reading, which excludes autos and gas, was up 0.6%, beating the expected increase of 0.3%. Business inventories rose 0.7% in October, versus consensus of 0.3% for the month. COMPANY NEWS: Facebook (FB) shares gained about 3.5% after it was announced that the social network's stock will join the S&P 500 after the market close next Friday, December 20, replacing Teradyne (TER). Also joining the S&P 500 on the same date will be Alliance Data Systems (ADS) and Mohawk Industries (MHK), to replace JDSU (JDSU) and Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF)... Shares of Oracle (ORCL) declined 2.5% near midday after both Morgan Stanley and RBC Capital downgraded their ratings on the stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was defense and technology contractor Exelis (XLS), up almost 7% near midday after the company last night announced plans to spin-off its military and government services business into a separate publicly traded company and was selected by Boeing (BA) to produce composite airframe substructures for the 787 Dreamliner. Also higher were shares of UNS Energy (UNS), which gained 28% after the utility agreed to be acquired by Canada's Fortis for $60.25 per share. Among the noteworthy losers was lululemon (LULU), down nearly 11% after the yoga apparel maker reported third quarter results that were slightly better than expected, but gave a fourth quarter profit and sales view that disappointed. Also lower were shares of IAMGOLD (IAG), which fell 10% after the gold miner announced last night that it will suspend its dividend until further notice. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 118.51, or 0.75%, to 15,725.02; the Nasdaq was down 7.45, or 0.19%, to 3,996.36; and the S&P 500 was down 8.19, or 0.46%, to 1,774.03.
