12:22 EDTNILE, AMZN, AEA, TRW, HDY, ITRI, NTAP, SJM, GMOn The Fly: Mid-Day Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at mid-day, following some encouraging domestic economic data. The futures began the day below fair value and the market looked as if the selling would continue from yesterday. The futures moved off their lows but still closed in negative territory, even after better than expected data on jobless claims and housing start. The market opened flat but began to drift higher. The averages continued their upward momentum following the better than expected Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing report. The averages now stand at session highs in what has been a slow, methodical recapture of almost all of yesterday’s losses... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, 348,000 weekly initial jobless claims were reported, which was below the expected 365,000. The producer price index for January inched up 0.1%, versus the expected increase of 0.4%. However, "core" PPI, minus food and energy, rose 0.4%, versus the expected increase of 0.2%. There were 699,000 housing starts versus the expected 675,000, and 676,000 building permits versus the expected 680,000. The Philadelphia Manufacturing Index was released with a reading of 10.2, beating the expected reading of 9.0. Also of note but largely ignored in today's trading, last night Moody's warned that it may lower the credit ratings of 17 global and 114 European financial institutions, citing the ongoing euro zone debt crisis... MARKET NEWS: Sales and profits at General Motors (GM) missed estimates, as its strong U.S. performance was weighed on by losses in Europe and South America. Still, shares advanced over 6%, as the company expressed confidence in its ability to increase top-line revenue this year... Among others reporting earnings, NetApp (NTAP) and TRW Automotive (TRW) advanced, while Avis Budget (CAR) and Blue Nile (NILE) declined... Amazon.com (AMZN) traded lower following a downgrade at Morgan Stanley... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Itron (ITRI), after receiving at least three upgrades following its earnings, guidance, and acquisition news, and Advance America (AEA), on news it will be acquired by Grupo Elektra for $10.50 per share. Noteworthy losers included J.M. Smucker (SJM), following its weaker than expected results and cautious comments, and Hyperdynamics (HDY), after saying a well offshore Guinea may have had larger volumes of oil previously but the oil reserves formerly present may have since leaked out... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 103.46, or 0.81%, to 12,884.41; the Nasdaq was up 26.56, or 0.91%, to 2,942.39; and the S&P 500 was up 10.65, or 0.79%, to 1,353.88.
