16:17 EDTHPQ, AIG, WBMD, ARUN, MMSI, INTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stock futures were higher during the pre-market trading session following better than expected earnings reports from Dow components AIG (AIG) and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and a positive confidence reading out of Germany. The futures action led to a higher open for the broader market. The averages found an immediate level where they sat for the first half of the session, before finally breaking out a bit toward the upside. The averages closed in positive territory for the eighth consecutive Friday, which includes every Friday in 2013, and the move pushed the Dow into the green for the week... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no market moving economic data was reported. In Germany, official data confirmed an earlier estimate that the nation's GDP shrank 0.6% in the last three months of 2012. However, the Ifo Institute business confidence reading rose to 107.4 from 104.2 in January, beating expectations. Also in Europe, the European Commission lowered it forecast for gross domestic product in the 17-nation region, estimating now that GDP will fall 0.3% this year. The EC predicted in November that the region's economy would grow 0.1% in 2013... COMPANY NEWS: Hewlett-Packard surged $2.10, or 12.28%, to $19.20 and led the Dow Jones Industrial Average after its Q1 results topped estimates, as did its earnings guidance... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the other notable gainers following their earnings reports were WebMD (WBMD), which rose $4.14, or 25.4%, to $20.44, and Aruba Networks (ARUN), up $4.60, or 22.13%, to $25.40. Among the noteworthy losers was Merit Medical (MMSI), which fell $2.10, or 15.18%, to $11.73 and was downgraded at Raymond James following its quarterly report. Also lower were shares of World Fuel Services (INT), down $4.47, or 10.16%, to $39.51 after the company reported revenues and profits that disappointed... INDICES: The Dow was up 119.95, or 0.86%, to 14,000.57; the Nasdaq was up 30.33, or 0.97%, to 3,161.82; and the S&P 500 was up 13.18, or 0.88%, to 1,515.60.
