16:50 EDTDAL, TM, GM, S, JBLU, RAD, HMC, HLF, UAL, FEYE, F, AALOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed in the second trading session of the year, with the Dow climbing, the Nasdaq falling, and the S&P 500 finishing virtually flat. Volume remained light, with snow in the northeast and the fractured holiday week perhaps keeping some market participants home. The averages traded in a modest range for much of the session, with commentary from some Fed members, including outgoing chairman Ben Bernanke, moving the markets in the final hour of trade. 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: Automakers released their U.S. sales data for December, and among the notable reporters was General Motors (GM), which reported sales fell by over 6% during the month compared to last year and shares of the car-maker fell $1.38, or 3.37%, to $39.57 following the announcement. Ford (F) reported December sales grew by almost 2%, while Japanese manufacturers Honda (HMC) reported sales that rose 1.9% and Toyota (TM) saw sales drop 1.7%. Shares of computer-security firm FireEye (FEYE) gained $15.89, or 38.63%, to $57.02 after the company announced last night that it had bought privately held cybersecurity firm Mandiant in a deal valued at $1 billion. FireEye also raised its revenue outlook and analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and JPMorgan increased their price targets on the stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Rite Aid (RAD), up 43c, or 8.53%, to $5.47 after the company reported December same-store sales that rose 2.9%, with analysts at Deutsche Bank noting that this is the pharmacy's best growth in 21 months. Also higher was Delta (DAL), up $1.53, or 5.52%, to $29.23 after reporting that its Passenger Revenue per Available Seat Mile, or PRASM, was up 10% in December compared to the prior year. Delta's airline peers, including United Continental (UAL), up $2.22, or 5.88%, to $39.95, JetBlue (JBLU), up 45c, or 5.23%, to $9.05, and American Airlines (AAL), up $1.18, or 4.65%, to $26.54 also advanced. Among the noteworthy losers was Herbalife (HLF), down $2.74, or 3.43%, to $77.09 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. Also lower was Sprint (S), down 46c, or 4.42%, to $9.94 after the stock was cut to Sell from Hold at Stifel, which said it is skeptical of the company's near-term M&A prospects. INDEXES: The Dow was up 28.64, or 0.17%, to 16,469.99; the S&P 500 was down 0.61, or 0.03%, to 1,831.37; the Nasdaq was down 11.16, or 0.27%, to 4,131.91.

16:18 EDTTM, HMCJapanese carmakers delay Takata restructuring until post-recall, Reuters says
Japanese automakers including Honda (HMC), Nissan (NSANY), and Toyota (TM) are delaying pressure for a restructuring at Takata (TKTDY) until the company ships out a healthy supply of replacement parts, reports Reuters, citing Masaki Higurashi, deputy director of the Japanese trade ministry's auto division. "After all the replacement parts are supplied, the automakers have to decide whether to let Takata stay on as it is... I think the automakers are starting to think about that," added Higurashi. Reuters notes that Takata and the carmakers disagree on whether the most recent round of airbag recalls are necessary, and as a result have not reached an agreement on costs. Reference Link
