16:29 EDTHD, MSFT, MBI, BAC, GBX, AMD, TROX, AKSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were unable to rally after the major averages spent the majority of the day near their starting points. The U.S. reported its October federal budget at midday and the market met the data with a shrug. Dow member Cisco Systems (CSCO) is among those reporting earnings after today's close... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., October's budget deficit grew to $120B from a $98.5B shortfall a month ago. Analysts forecast a $113B deficit for October. 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... COMPANY NEWS: Home Depot (HD) reported better than expected earnings before the bell and outpaced all members of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, advancing $2.22, or 3.63%, to $63.38... Microsoft (MSFT) saw shares trade down 90c, or 3.22%, to $27.09 after the head of its Windows unit resigned, though Stifel Nicolaus suggested that the departure could help the company over the long term... Shares of MBIA (MBI) slipped $1.60, or 19.02%, to $6.81 after midday news broke that Bank of America (BAC) commenced a debt tender offer in a bid to stop MBIA from getting consent from bondholders to make certain changes to its bond covenants... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Greenbrier (GBX), up $2.78, or 19.93%, to $16.73 after activist investor Carl Icahn reported a 9.99% stake in the company and called shares undervalued. Also higher were shares of Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which spiked as high as $2.26 but closed up 10c, or 5.03%, at $2.09 after Reuters said the company has hired JPMorgan (JPM) to explore options potentially including the sale of patents or an outright sale of the company. Among the noteworthy losers was Tronox (TROX), down $3.54, or 18.91%, to $15.18 after the company reported Q3 earnings that missed consensus estimates, though the company's CEO said he sees sales increasing in 2013. Also lower were shares of AK Steel (AKS), down 96c, or 17.58%, to $4.50 after the company warned its Q4 losses are likely to be worse than analysts estimated... INDICES: The Dow lost 58.90, or 0.46%, to 12,756.18; the Nasdaq fell 20.37, or 0.70%, to 2,883.89; and the S&P 500 shed 5.50, or 0.40%, to 1,374.53.
