12:20 EDTGE, COF, STT, PATH, LIFE, FB, AAPL, INTC, MS, FNSROn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday, as earnings reports and economic data did little to spur the markets. Shares of Intel (INTC), Apple (AAPL), and Facebook (FB) were all trading lower at midday, weighing on the Nasdaq, while the Dow and S&P sat a bit below the flat-line after both averages touched five-year highs during yesterday's trading... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the preliminary University of Michigan Consumer Confidence reading dropped to 71.3, versus an expected first look reading of 75.0 for January. In Asia, China's GDP grew 7.9% in the final quarter of the year. The late-year rebound led the nation's full year GDP to grow 7.8%, beating analyst consensus of 7.7% and the government's 7.5% target. Also, Japan's stock market surged on increased expectations that the government will take even more aggressive easing steps... COMPANY NEWS: General Electric (GE) reported earnings that were just above Street estimates and a record equipment and services backlog of $210B to end the year, sending shares up almost 3% at midday... Morgan Stanley (MS) also reported earnings that beat consensus estimates, and the company said expenses could decline by about $1.6B through 2014. Shares of Morgan Stanley were leading the financial sector at midday, up over 7.5%... Intel dropped 6.5% at midday after the company reported earnings last night that were generally in-line with Street estimates, though investor concerns over slowing sales and continued capital spending spurred a sell-off of shares... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Life Technologies (LIFE), up about 10.6% as a number analysts said a takeover or leveraged buyout could be in the works for the company following a media report indicating talks are ongoing. Also higher were shares of NuPathe (PATH), up 8.2% after the company's migraine treatment Zecuity received FDA approval, and State Street (STT), up 5.9% after the company reported earnings that beat estimates and announced the elimination of 630 jobs worldwide. Among noteworthy losers were shares of Capital One Financial (COF), down 8.3% after Janney Capital downgraded shares to Neutral citing last night's disappointing Q4 results, and Finisar (FNSR), down 7.4% following a downgrade to Underperform at Jefferies... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 21.64, or 0.16%, to 13,574.38; the Nasdaq was down 14.97, or 0.48%, to 3,121.03; and the S&P 500 was down 3.85, or 0.26%, to 1,477.09.

Apple (AAPL) has reached deals with American Express (AXP), JPMorgan (JPM), Citigroup (C), Capital One (COF), and Bank of America (BAC) to lower card transaction fees for its soon to be launched payments venture, said Bank Innovations, citing an earlier report from Tom Noyes and confirmation by its own sources.
