16:24 EDTHTWR, BBY, CLF, HPQ, KKDOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed after pre-open news of a $8.8B write-down at Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and midday comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke dented the averages. Better than expected housing data provided a counter point to Bernanke's warnings about the potential impact of the fiscal cliff and a late day recovery brought the indices back to being nearly unchanged on the day... 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 $1.59, or 11.95%, to $11.71, closing near 10-year lows after the company disclosed "serious accounting improprieties, disclosure failures and outright misrepresentations” related to its purchase of U.K. software company Autonomy. In addition to the scandal, H-P's quarterly earnings beat expectations but its view for profit next quarter trailed Street estimates... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (KKD), up $1.77, or 23.47%, to $9.31 after the company's Q3 earnings beat consensus estimates and Wedbush raised their price target on the shares to $11 from $9. Also higher were shares of HeartWare (HTWR), which rose $7.53, or 9.18%, to $89.54 after the company received FDA approval for a heart failure pump. Among the noteworthy losers was Best Buy (BBY), which slid $1.79, or 13.02%, to $11.96 after its earnings fell short of lowered expectations and its same store sales declined 4.3%. Also lower were shares of Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF), down $4.19, or 12.07%, to $30.48 following a downgrade to Sell from Neutral at Goldman... INDICES: The Dow was down 7.45, or 0.06%, to 12,788.51; the Nasdaq was up 0.61, or 0.02%, to 2,916.68; and the S&P 500 was up 0.93, or 0.07%, to 1,387.82.
