12:40 EDTKEYW, F, QLYS, FEYE, GM, PFPT, HLFOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with only the Dow hanging on to its early session gains. The market opened in positive territory and looked set to recapture some of its losses from yesterday. As the morning progressed, however, the averages weakened and eventually turned mixed. The Nasdaq was the first index to fall into negative territory and the S&P fell into the red as well right before noon. The volume remains light, as many market participants remain on the sidelines given the mid-week holiday and the storm that hit the Northeast. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the New York ISM fell to 63.8 in December from a prior reading of 69.5. Crude oil inventories fell by more than projected last week, drawing down by about 7M barrels. COMPANY NEWS: Auto makers released their U.S. sales data for December. General Motors (GM) reported its sales fell by over 6% during the month compared to last year and its stock declined over 3% following the announcement, while Ford (F) shares rose fractionally after the company's December sales grew by almost 2%... Shares of computer-security firm FireEye (FEYE) jumped over 31% after the company announced last night that it had bought privately held cybersecurity firm Mandiant in a deal valued at $1 billion. Separately, FireEye raised its revenue outlook and analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and JPMorgan increased their price targets on its shares. Other stock in the cybersecurity industry advanced as well following the deal, with KEYW (KEYW), Proofpoint (PFPT) and Qualys (QLYS) all trading higher. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Chinese travel search website operator Qunar (QUNR), which rose nearly 10% after the company said that it achieved a single-day record for air ticket bookings, with more than 60K over the New Year holiday. Also higher was Delta (DAL), which jumped 4% after reporting its Passenger Revenue per Available Seat Mile, or PRASM, was up 10% in December compared to the prior year. Among the noteworthy losers was RF Industries (RFIL), which dropped 21% after reporting preliminary Q4 earnings and revenue that were down from the prior year. Also lower were shares of Herbalife (HLF), which fell more than 4% after the Federal Trade Commission announced it will hold a press conference next Tuesday to announce an initiative against "deceptive advertising of weight-loss products," though the FTC did not name the products or manufacturers it will target. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 26.91, or 0.16%, to 16,468.26, the Nasdaq was down 13.69, or 0.33%, to 4,129.38, and the S&P 500 was down 0.41, or 0.02%, to 1,831.57.
