16:50 EDTAAL, DAL, TM, GM, S, JBLU, RAD, HMC, HLF, UAL, FEYE, FOn 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.
