12:37 EDTAVG, BBY, GE, SZYM, PAY, YHOO, CNC, ADBEOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday despite better than expected reports on U.S. industrial production and Chinese manufacturing activity. The data, however, had little impact as investors continue to wait for a break through on the fiscal cliff negotiations. The market has moved in a narrow range during the morning hours and shows little sense of direction... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., a report showed consumer prices declined 0.3% in November, mainly because of falling gasoline costs. When food and energy are removed from the equation, "core" prices increased 0.1%, versus expectations for them to rise 0.2%. Markit's preliminary manufacturing PMI improved to 54.2 in December, versus the 52.8 final reading for November. Industrial production beat expectations with a 1.1% increase in November, versus expectations for a rise of 0.3%. Industrial production capacity utilization rose to 78.4%, which was a bit more than an expected move up to 78.0%. 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.
