16:58 EDTFOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks on Wall Street started the day higher following manufacturing data from China and Europe. The averages briefly stalled and appeared set to lose their momentum when a reading on U.S. manufacturing came in a well below expectations, but the market gathered itself up quickly and spent the rest of the first day of December, a historically strong month for equities, in the green. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Markit's manufacturing purchasing managers index for November came in at 52.8, slightly higher than the 52.6 consensus forecast. ISM's manufacturing index, however, was unexpectedly weak, falling to its worst levels since the summer of 2009 and dropping into contraction territory. The ISM measure for November came in at 48.6, well below expectations for a reading of 50.5. Construction spending in the U.S. grew 1.0% in October, beating the 0.6% growth estimate. In China, the official purchasing managers index fell to its lowest level since the summer of 2012, hitting 49.6 in November. This is down from the prior 49.8 reading, where economists had projected for it to remain. The non-manufacturing PMI rose to 53.6 from 53.1 a month earlier. In Europe, the purchasing managers index for the euro area rose to 52.8 in November from 52.3 the previous month, in-line with expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Vehicle sales kept up their torrid pace last month, with Autodata estimating that November's U.S. Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate, or SAAR, was 18.19M units, marking the first time that the measure held above 18M for three straight months. The strength in today's sales reports from the automakers wasn't necessarily reflected in their shares, however, as Ford (F) closed the session with a gain of just 1.64% while General Motors (GM) added 0.2%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was TerraForm Power (TERP), which surged $2.25, or 32.6%, to $9.15 after David Tepper's Appaloosa Management disclosed holdings of TerraForm common equity and senior notes and called on the company to make "substantial further disclosures" regarding its relationship with its "Sponsor", SunEdison (SUNE). SunEdison, which backed out of a deal to purchase a 15.87% stake in Renova and reportedly is arranging financing for a portfolio of solar projects while simultaneously exploring the sale of some assets, rose 9.1% today as well. Also higher was Infoblox (BLOX), which gained 22% to $18.35 after the company reported stronger than expected results and authorized a $100M stock repurchase plan.. Among the noteworthy losers was NQ Mobile (NQ), which fell 17.42%, to $3.48 after reporting earnings and announcing it will temporarily suspend the practice of providing revenue guidance. Also lower were shares of Joy Global (JOY) and Cummins (CMI), which dropped 13.16% and 7.9%, respectively, after Bank of America Merrill Lynch downgraded both stocks to sell-equivalent ratings, citing another expected devaluation of China's Renminbi along with the continued tough commodity environment. INDEXES: The Dow rose 168.43, or 0.95%, to 17,888.35, the Nasdaq gained 47.64, or 0.93%, to 5,156.31, and the S&P 500 advanced 22.22, or 1.07%, to 2,102.63.
