12:53 EDTGOOG, AET, MU, ADS, BHI, PM, MS, UNH, DD, GS, GE, AXP, SNDK, IBM, WLPOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed but near the flat-line at midday as investors sifted through a barrage of earnings reports from some of the world's biggest companies. Stock futures were pointing to a lower open in the early hours of the morning following last night's misses by two of the biggest names in tech. However, the futures moved off their lows as some other corporate giants reported better than expected earnings and weekly jobless claims also positively surprised, though the broader market opened slightly lower. The averages have managed to pare their losses throughout the morning and turn mixed. The market is on track to have it best weekly performance since last year if it can hold near current levels into the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims edged up 2K to 304K in the week ended April 12, though that was below the consensus 315K forecast of economists. The Philly Fed manufacturing index climbed to 16.6, beating expectations for a more modest uptick to 10.0. COMPANY NEWS: Two of the biggest names in technology, Google (GOOG) and IBM (IBM), both reported revenue that missed expectations last night, which weighed on both of their stocks. Google, which also missed expectations for earnings per share, slid over 4% near noon, while shares of IBM were down over 3%... In addition to IBM, five other Dow components reported on their just ended quarters: General Electric (GE), which rose over 2%, UnitedHealth (UNH), which declined more than 3.5%, American Express (AXP), which slid about 2%, DuPont (DD), which fell 1%, and Goldman Sachs (GS), whose shares were little changed near midday... Among the many other companies that reported after last night's closing bell and this morning's open, Baker Hughes (BHI) and Morgan Stanley (MS) advanced, while Phillip Morris International (PM) and Alliance Data Systems (ADS) declined. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was SanDisk (SNDK), which advanced 10% after the company's quarterly results topped analysts' consensus estimates and the company raised its adjusted gross margin outlook. SanDisk peer Micron (MU), which issued its own quarterly report two weeks ago today, also rose 5%. Among the noteworthy losers were a number of health insurers following the quarterly report from UnitedHealth, which is the largest company in the sector. Shares of peer WellPoint (WLP) slid almost 4%, while Aetna (AET) fell 3%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 7.07, or 0.04%, to 16,417.78, the Nasdaq was up 8.54, or 0.21%, to 4,094.76, and the S&P 500 was up 2.20, or 0.12%, to 1,864.51.
