12:02 EDTFLOOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street opened deep in negative territory but the averages began to pare their losses almost immediately. All eyes and ears were on Fed Chair Janet Yellen, who gave a welcoming speech at a Fed conference, though she did not discuss policy or the economy. Other Fed speakers talked about the lack of inflation as well as interest rate expectations, but their comments so far this morning have failed to clarify expectations for the December meeting. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims were unchanged at 276,000 in the week of November 7, versus expectations for 270,000 first-time claims. The JOLTS report showed job openings rebounded 149,000 to 5.53M in September. In Europe, European Central Bank president Mario Draghi, in remarks delivered in a hearing in the European Parliament, once again signaled that the bank is ready to boost stimulus at its December meeting as warranted.

Advance Auto Parts (AAP) sunk 13% after its earnings missed the consensus forecast, its profit guidance was lowered, its CEO announced plans to retire and Starboard's CEO Jeff Smith was appointed to the company's board. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Eros International (EROS), which rallied more than 8.5% after it called allegations of security laws violations "baseless and misleading." Also higher was Viacom (VIAB), which gained 2.5% after it quarterly earnings came in roughly in-line with consensus estimates. Among the noteworthy losers was Fairmount Santrol (FMSA), which fell 20% after reporting downbeat third quarter earnings and suspending its earnings guidance due to market uncertainty.
