12:14 EDTPOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning, moving in a narrow range on fairly light volume as expected on a get-away day for many investors ahead of Thanksgiving. The tepid trading comes amid a packed economic calendar, with a number of reports that are usually scheduled for release on other days of the week being accelerated due to the holiday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., there was a very busy slate of economic data as several days of reports were crammed into a single morning. Jobless claims fell to 260,000 in the week ended November 21, versus expectations for 270,000 first-time claims. Personal income rose 0.4% in October, matching expectations, while spending rose 0.1%, versus expectations for spending to rise 0.3%. Durable goods orders were up 3.0% last month, versus expectations of up 1.7%. When transportation items are removed, the core reading was up 0.5%, versus expectations for it to be up 0.3%. The FHFA home price index rose 0.8% in September to a reading of 226.5. Markit's services index improved to 56.5 in the flash reading for November, topping the 55.1 forecast. New home sales rose 10.7% to a 495,000 rate in October. Consumer sentiment rose to 91.3 in the final November print of the University of Michigan survey, up from October's 90.0 reading but down from the preliminary 93.1 November reading. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of HP Inc. (HPQ) and HP Enterprise (HPE) moved in opposite directions following their last combined earnings report. HP Inc., which was downgraded by Needham analyst David Rold to Hold following last night report, fell 13% near midday. Meanwhile, HP Enterprise, which announced an Azure cloud partnership with Microsoft (MSFT) in addition to its results, gained about 3%... Deere (DE), which reported better than expected earnings and issued a 2016 sales outlook that met expectations, gained nearly 4% following its quarterly report. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Pandora (P), which rallied almost 5% after it said that the Register of Copyrights ruled that it couldn't offer an opinion to counter the current "non-differentiated rate structure of licensors." Also higher was Guess (GES), which gained 8% after it reported quarterly earnings and provided guidance. Among the noteworthy losers were SunEdison (SUNE) and TerraForm Power (TERP), which fell 14% and 15%, respectively, after an analyst from UBS downgraded both companies' stocks, saying they are facing considerable risk after personnel changes at TerraForm. Also lower was PTC Therapeutics (PTCT), which lost 5% after Jefferies analyst Gena Wang downgraded its shares to Underperform, saying yesterday's FDA panel for BioMarin's (BMRN) competing muscular dystrophy drug is a negative for PTC. Following yesterday's FDA meeting, BioMarin slipped fractionally and Sarepta (SRPT), which is also competing in the same therapeutic area, was flat. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 23.48, or 0.13%, to 17,835.67, the Nasdaq was up 19.14, or 0.38%, to 5,121.94, and the S&P 500 was up 2.27, or 0.11%, to 2,091.41.

11:35 EDTJCPDillard's sinks to 52-week low after joining chorus of 'disappointed' retailers
Shares of Dillard's (DDS), a retailer of fashion apparel, cosmetics and home furnishing, are falling to their worst level in a year after the company became the latest in its industry to report lower than expected third quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Dillard's reported Q3 earnings per share of $1.19 and revenue of $1.435B, narrowly missing analysts' consensus estimates of $1.20 and $1.49B, respectively. Same-store sales for the quarter fell 4%. Total merchandise sales decreased 3% for the 13-week period ended October 31. Weaker performing categories were men's apparel and accessories and ladies' accessories and lingerie with notable weakness in home and furniture the company explained. Dillard's Chief Executive Officer, William T. Dillard, II, stated, "We are disappointed with our third quarter sales performance and in the resulting decline in profit. Share buyback remained a high priority, and we repurchased $175 million of stock under our share repurchase program." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Gross margin from retail operations improved 11 basis points of sales for the 13 weeks ended October 31 compared to the prior year third quarter. Consolidated gross margin for the 13 weeks ended October 31 declined 30 basis points of sales compared to the prior year third quarter. The disparity between retail and consolidated gross margin performance is attributable to increased revenue at CDI, which is a substantially lower margin business. Inventory increased 6% at October 31 compared to November 1, 2014. For FY15, the company expects capital expenditures of $150M. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Dillard's fell $5.81, or 7.5%, to $71.79 on more than three times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week low of $68.05. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost about 36% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other apparel, cosmetics and home furnishing retailers include Macy's (M), Kohl's (KSS), JC Penny (JCP), Sears (SHLD) and Nordstrom (JWN).
