12:22 EDTHD, MSFT, GBX, DKS, HCLP, BHI, WFTOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday as the averages struggle to regain some portion of their losses from last week. The market opened moderately lower on the heels of the futures, which ended the premarket session below fair value. The major equity indices have traded in a narrow range again today, though they all stand near session highs at the lunch hour, with the Dow the biggest winner and the Nasdaq fighting to get back into positive territory... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the October federal budget is scheduled to be reported at 2:00 pm ET and is seen widening to $113B from $98.5B a month ago. In Europe, euro-zone leaders failed to agree on the release of the latest round of aid for Greece, though the nation was granted a two-year extension by the EU to repay its current bailout loans. Also, a measure of German economic sentiment unexpectedly fell more than was forecast and U.K. inflation rose faster than expected... COMPANY NEWS: Home Depot (HD) leads all members of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, up 3.7% after its earnings and revenue beat expectations and the company raised its full year guidance. Microsoft (MSFT) is the Dow's laggard, down 2.7% after the head of its Windows unit resigned, though Stifel Nicolaus suggested that the departure could help the company over the long term... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Greenbrier (GBX), up 17% after investor Carl Icahn reported a 9.99% stake in the company and called its shares undervalued. Also higher were shares of Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS), up nearly 5% following its better than expected quarterly report and increased full year outlook. Among the noteworthy losers was Hi-Crush Partners (HCLP), down 21% after its quarterly results missed consensus and it announced the termination of a supply agreement with Baker Hughes (BHI). Also lower were shares of Weatherford (WFT), down almost 14% after the company reported a disappointing preliminary revenue estimate and said it sees material weakness in its internal controls, prompting it to restate some prior financial statements... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 47.73, or 0.37%, to 12,862.81; the Nasdaq was down 0.68, or 0.02%, to 2,903.58; and the S&P 500 was up 5.64, or 0.41%, to 1,385.67.
