12:28 EDTPVH, GM, AXAS, HPQ, VRA, JOYOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks began the session in quiet fashion as they got little help from the day’s economic reports which included the weekly jobless claims data and the monthly Challenger Job Cuts report. The relatively benign numbers lifted the futures above fair value but gave it little momentum once the market opened. The averages drifted in a narrow range and pushed the S&P to a new all-time high. The market may continue to drift this afternoon as investors move to the sidelines ahead of tomorrow’s nonfarm payrolls report. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose slightly, up 8,000 to 312,000, in the week of May 31. The Challenger Job-Cut Report for May came in at 52,961, an increase partially caused by a 16,000 employee layoff at Hewlett-Packard (HPQ). COMPANY NEWS: General Motors (GM) released the results of an internal investigation into the company’s delayed recall of defective ignition switches, with CEO Mary Barra saying the saga was "riddled with failure, leading to tragic results for many." Fifteen employees were fired for misconduct, incompetence or failure to act. MAJOR MOVERS: Joy Global (JOY) is up 6.31% after reporting Q2 earnings results and backing its FY14 guidance. Abraxas Petroleum (AXAS) is up 11.38% after raising its FY14 production guidance last night after the close. Abraxas was also upgraded to Buy from Neutral at SunTrust this morning. PVH Corp (PVH) is down 6.66% after reporting Q1 earnings results and lowering its FY14 EPS view. Vera Bradley (VRA) is down 3.6% after reporting Q1 earnings results and giving Q2 and FY15 guidance that did not meet analyst expectations. INDEXES: The Dow is up 97.10, or 0.58%, to 16,834.63; the Nasdaq is up 37.88, or 0.89%, to 4,289.52; and the S&P 500 is up 11.06, or 0.57%, to 1,938.96.
