Industrial production beat expectations with a 1.1% increase in November, versus expectations for a rise of 0.3%.

In China, Markit's flash China PMI rose to a 14-month high reading of 50.9, beating expectations for a 50.8 reading. In Europe, Germany's flash PMI hit an 8-month high with a 50.2 reading, while France hit a 4-month high at 45.0, though its figure still indicates contraction... COMPANY NEWS: General Electric (GE) boosted its dividend by 12% to 19c per share and increased its existing share repurchase authorization by $10B... Among companies reporting earnings last night, Adobe (ADBE) advanced nearly 6% while VeriFone (PAY) declined over 10%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Solazyme (SZYM), up about 11% after announcing it has reached commercial-scale output at a facility in Iowa, and AVG Technologies (AVG), up 9% after announcing a new Search and Distribution relationship with Yahoo! (YHOO). Among the noteworthy losers was Best Buy (BBY), which fell over 15% after its board extended the deadline for founder Richard Schulze to deliver a potential buy-out bid. Also lower were shares of Centene (CNC), down over 8% after the company cut its FY12 EPS guidance... INDICES: Near 12:30 pm ET, the Dow was down 4.05, or 0.03%, to 13,166.67; the Nasdaq was down 10.15, or 0.34%, to 2,982.01; and the S&P 500 was down 2.50, or 0.18%, to 1,416.95.
