12:24 EDTMLNX, F, TJX, GPS, SONS, GM, ROST, ALLT, SPWR, LTD, FDOOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, as the Dow narrowly underperformed the Nasdaq and S&P after yesterday's big run-up. The averages began the session in negative territory, which was not surprising given the gains of the last two sessions, but the economic releases, particularly the ADP employment change report, encouraged investors to drive the indices off their opening lows and back into positive territory near noon... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Challenger, Gray & Christmas said planned job cuts announced in December fell to 32,556, down 43% from November and 22% below December of last year. Payroll processor ADP said private employers added 215K jobs in December, which was up from November's total of 148K and above analyst forecasts for 140K new hires. Weekly jobless claims rose to 372K, versus expectation for an increase to 360K... COMPANY NEWS: Results were mixed among retailers reporting December same-store sales, with Ross Stores (ROST) and TJX (TJX) among those beating consensus and Limited (LTD) one notable name that disappointed. Family Dollar (FDO), in addition to having December SSS growth miss expectations, reported quarterly earnings and revenues below consensus and gave guidance below the Street's view, sending its shares down over 11%... In addition to reporting December SSS up 5%, Gap (GPS) made additional news with the approval of a $1B share buyback and the purchase of multi-brand specialty retailer Intermix for $130M... Increased December vehicle sales were also reported though out the morning, leading shares of both General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) up about 3%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were SunPower (SPWR), up 35% following an upgrade to Buy at Lazard Capital, and Sonus Networks (SONS), up 10% after Northland Securities said Verizon (VZ) is adding more of Sonus' products on its wire-line side of its business. Among the noteworthy losers were Allot Communications (ALLT), down 23% following a downgrade to Perform at Oppenheimer, and Melanox (MLNX), down 13% after its Q4 revenue warning prompted at least three firms to cut their price targets on its stock... INDICES: Near noon, the Nasdaq was up 5.26, or 0.17%, to 3,117.52; the S&P 500 was up 2.20, or 0.15%, to 1,464.62; and the Dow was virtually up 6.59, or 0.05%, to 13,419.14.
