12:31 EDTLULU, HPQ, WAVX, RH, GERN, TWTROn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday after retail sales rose less than expected in May and first-time unemployment claims increased last week. In addition to the mixed bag of economic data, there has also been increased anxiety about Iraq in recent days amidst a backdrop of an Islamist militant uprising there, as evidenced by a seven month high in the price of crude oil. The market opened in negative territory and has remained there throughout the morning, though the averages have drifted in a fairly narrow range again. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales rose only 0.3% in May, and were up 0.1% excluding autos, as both growth figures missed the consensus forecast. Initial jobless claims rose to 317K in the week ended June 7, which was above the expectation for 310K new claims. Import and export prices both rose 0.1% in May. Business inventories rose 0.6% in April, with sales up 0.7%. In Europe, the euro zone's industrial output rose 0.8% in April, versus expectations for a 0.4% increase.

Rowghani will continue to be an employee and act as a strategic advisor to the CEO and the company does not intend to hire a replacement for the COO role, Twitter stated. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Geron (GERN), which advanced 26.5% after the FDA removed its partial clinical hold on the company's trial of imetelstat in myelofibrosis. Also higher were shares of home furnishings retailer Restoration Hardware (RH), which rose 13% after the company's first quarter quarter results topped analysts' consensus estimates and it raised its fiscal 2014 outlook. Among the noteworthy losers was yoga wear maker lululemon (LULU), which dropped over 15% and was downgraded at both William Blair and Stifel after the company reported Q1 results, lowered its FY14 guidance and announced the retirement of CFO John Currie.
