12:40 EDTHPQ, BBY, JPM, CS, GMCR, KO, KKD, CLF, PDCOOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday as a surprisingly large write-down, and associated charges of fraud, from Dow component Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) somewhat overshadowed better than expected U.S. housing data. Stocks began the day moderately lower, with the early weakness attributed to a downgrade of French sovereign debt. The averages found a level almost immediately from which they began paring their losses. The averages were mixed and sitting on either side of the flat line as Fed Chairman Bernanke gave a speech stating that the fiscal cliff has the potential to influence economic growth significantly, for better or worse, this coming year... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts increased 3.6% in October from the prior month, to an annual rate of 894K, versus expectations for a decline of 3.7%. Building permits declined 2.7%, to an 866K annual rate, versus expectations for a decline of 2.9%. In Europe, Moody's downgraded France's government bond rating to Aa1 from Aaa... COMPANY NEWS: Hewlett-Packard shares plunged 11% to a 10-year low after the company recorded a $8.8B write-down "linked to serious accounting improprieties, disclosure failures and outright misrepresentations” related to its purchase of U.K. software company Autonomy. Almost lost in the scandal were H-P's results, as its quarterly earnings beat expectations but its view for profit next quarter trailed Street estimates... Best Buy's (BBY) earnings fell short of lowered expectations, its same store sales declined 4.3% and the company lowered its free cash flow view by almost a half a billion dollars, sending shares down 12%... In the financial sector, JPMorgan (JPM) announced a new Chief Financial Officer and Credit Suisse (CS) said it will combine its asset management unit with its private bank resulting in a simplified corporate structure with only two arms... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR), which rose 6% after it named former Coca-Cola (KO) executive Brian Kelley as its new CEO. Also higher were shares of Krispy Kreme (KKD), up 22% after its Q3 results topped expectations. Among the noteworthy losers were Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF), down 9% following a downgrade to Sell at Goldman, and Patterson Companies (PDCO), down 7% after the company lowered its FY13 EPS view... INDICES: Near 12:30 pm ET, the Dow was up 2.42, or 0.02%, to 12,798.38; the Nasdaq was down 3.44, or 0.12%, to 2,912.63; and the S&P 500 was down 0.33, or 0.02%, to 1,386.56.
