12:46 EDTKIRKOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday despite disappointing purchasing managers' index readings in both China and Europe. The market took its early lead from Europe and opened lower, though the major averages moved into positive territory following a trio of better than expected domestic economic reports, as the leading economic indicators, Philadelphia Fed survey, and existing home sales all beat consensus forecasts. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 2K to 291K in the week ended November 15, versus expectations for 280K first-time claims. The Consumer Prices Index was unchanged in October, versus expectations for a drop of 0.1%. The core CPI reading, which excludes food and energy, rose 0.2%, versus expectations for an increase of 0.1%. Markit's flash manufacturing PMI slipped 1.2 points to 54.7 in November, versus the consensus forecast for a 56.5 reading. Existing home sales rose 1.5% to a 5.26M rate in October, which beat expectations for a decline to a 5.15M unit rate. The index of leading indicators climbed 0.9% to 105.2 in October, beating expectations for a 0.5% increase. The Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index surged to 40.8 in November, easily topping the consensus expectation for a 18.0 reading. In Asia, the HSBC/Markit manufacturing PMI for China fell to a six-month low of 50.0 in the flash reading for November, which is down from a final reading of 50.4 in October and below the 50.3 consensus forecast. In Europe, Markit's flash eurozone PMI composite output index, which tracks surveys from both the manufacturing and services sectors, came in at 51.4 for November, which was down from 52.1 in October and represents the measure's lowest level in 16 months. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Best Buy (BBY) advanced 7% after its third quarter profit beat estimates and it reported that its domestic same-store sales grew 3.2%. The electronics retailer also said the sales trends it is seeing as its enters the critical fourth quarter are "encouraging from a top-line perspective." MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Williams-Sonoma (WSM), which rose nearly 10% after the home goods retailer's third quarter results surpassed analystsí consensus estimates and the company raised its fiscal 2014 outlook. Also higher following its own "beat and raise" quarterly report was Kirkland's (KIRK), which advanced 18%. Among the noteworthy losers was Liquidity Services (LQDT), which dropped 9% after its fourth quarter earnings missed expectations and the company said it will no longer give yearly guidance. Also lower was Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR), which dropped 6% after its first quarter profit outlook fell short of analystsí consensus estimates and the company's Chief Financial Officer announced plans to depart. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 7.84, or 0.04%, to 17,693.57, the Nasdaq was up 22.08, or 0.47%, to 4,697.80, and the S&P 500 was up 3.01, or 0.15%, to 2,051.73.
