12:25 EDTCSCO, AAMRQ, STZ, ULTA, VCLK, PEP, LCC, BRK.A, WTW, ANGI, GM, BUD, HNZ, WFM, ZOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were little changed at midday in spite of fewer than expected weekly jobless claims and a flurry of mergers and acquisitions announcements. The domestic news was offset by worse than expected economic growth data from Europe and Japan, leaving the major averages mixed near noon... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims fell 27K from the prior week to 341K, versus expectations for 360K claims. In Europe, the euro zone's 0.6% contraction in gross domestic product in the fourth quarter was the steepest for the bloc since early 2009. The zone's two biggest economies shrank more than expected, as Germany's economy contracted 0.6% and France's shrunk 0.3%. In Asia, Japanís real gross domestic product contracted for the third straight quarter, shrinking 0.1% in the final three months of last year... COMPANY NEWS: M&A news stole the headlines, as household names Heinz (HNZ), US Airways (LCC), American Airlines (AAMRQ) and Anheuser-Busch (BUD) were all involved in high-profile deals. Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A), along with partner 3G Capital, agreed to buy H.J. Heinz for $72.50 in cash per share, sending the stock of the ketchup maker up 20%. Constellation Brands (STZ) soared more than 35% after the terms of its deal with AB InBev were revised, granting Constellation perpetual rights to distribute Corona and other Modelo brands in the U.S. AB InBev shares also gained over 4% following the modification, which the company hopes will end its fight with the DOJ over its intention to acquire Grupo Modelo. US Airways shares fell 7% after it agreed to merge with bankrupt AMR Corp, the parent of American Airlines, in a deal that will create the world's biggest air carrier... Almost overshadowed among the M&A news were earnings reports from giants General Motors (GM), PepsiCo (PEP) and Dow component Cisco (CSCO). Of the three, only Pepsi traded higher following its results and outlook... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Angie's List (ANGI), up 24%, ValueClick (VCLK), up 16%, and Zillow (Z), up 12%. Among the noteworthy losers after their quarterly reports were Weight Watchers (WTW), down 16%, Ulta Salon (ULTA), down 12%, and Whole Foods Market (WFM), down over 9%... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 9.40, or 0.07%, to 13,973.51; the Nasdaq was up 0.31, or 0.01%, to 3,197.19; and the S&P 500 was up 0.14, or 0.01%, to 1,520.47.
