12:14 EDTFOXA, HAR, THOR, MTLS, XONE, DDD, SSYS, PCLN, CTRP, SNIOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session higher, thanks in part to better than expected initial jobless claims data and an agreement to extend the ceasefire between Israel and Gaza. The averages saw their highs a short time after the open, but then began to drift lower. By mid-morning the Dow had crossed into negative ground and the S&P and Nasdaq soon followed, leaving the major indexes all in the red, but not by much, near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims dropped 14K to 289K in the week ended August 2, versus expectations for 300K new claims. A report on consumer credit growth in June is expected at 3:00 pm ET. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of several 3D printer makers climbed after one of the companies in the sector, Stratasys (SSYS), reported stronger than expected second quarter results and raised its guidance. Near noon, Stratsys surged 19%, while 3D Systems rose 3%, Materialise (MTLS) advanced 6% and ExOne (XONE) gained more than 7%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Chinese online travel agency Ctrip.com (CTRP), which gained 10% after the company expanded its partnership with Priceline (PCLN) and received a $500M investment from the U.S. online travel giant. Also higher was 21st Century Fox (FOXA), which rose 6.5% after the company reported higher than expected fourth quarter earnings and the stock was upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Cowen. Among the noteworthy losers was Thoratec (THOR), which plunged 29% and was downgraded at Goldman, Credit Suisse and BTIG after reporting lower than expected second quarter revenues and lowering its FY14 profit guidance. Also lower following their earnings reports were Harman (HAR), which fell over 4%, and Scripps Networks (SNI), which dropped nearly 5%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 37.98, or 0.23%, to 16,405.36, the Nasdaq was down 2.92, or 0.07%, to 4,352.13, and the S&P 500 was down 4.35, or 0.23%, to 1,915.89.
