16:49 EDTTSLAOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
Stocks began Wednesday in positive territory and remained higher for much of the day before dipping slightly near close. The averages moved in a narrow range as investors digested a host of economic data, including reports on consumer confidence, jobless claims and housing, none of which moved the market in any discernible way ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., several days of economic reports were compressed into a single, busy morning. Jobless claims for the week ended November 21 fell to 260,000 against expectations for 270,000 first-time claims. Personal income rose 0.4% in October, matching expectations, while spending rose 0.1% versus estimates for a 0.3% increase. Meanwhile, durable goods orders were up 3% last month versus expectations for up 1.7%. Removing transportation items showed a core reading of up 0.5% against estimates for 0.3%. The FHFA home price index rose 0.8% in September to 226.5, while 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 November reading of 93.1. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of HP Inc. (HPQ) and HP Enterprise (HPE) headed in opposite directions following the final combined earnings report of the recently-split companies. HP Inc., which was downgraded to Hold at research firm Needham following last night's report, ended the session down 13.63% to $12.65. Meanwhile, HP Enterprise, which also announced a cloud partnership with Microsoft (MSFT), gained 3.14% to $14.12... Deere (DE), which reported better than expected earnings and issued a 2016 sales outlook matching estimates, gained 4.79% to $80 following its quarterly report. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Tesla (TSLA), which advanced $11.39, or 5.22%, to $229.64 after research firm Credit Suisse reiterated its Outperform rating and $325 price target on the shares, saying the carmaker's January volume report should positively address investor fears over its fourth-quarter performance and Model X production ramp. Also higher was American Capital (ACAS), which gained $1.32, or 9.50%, to $15.22 after expanding its stock buyback program and announcing a strategic review of the company, including a possible sale. Additionally, Veeva (VEEV) jumped 5.01% to $28.73 following its quarterly numbers, which prompted analysts at both JPMorgan and Canaccord to raise their price targets on the stock. Among the noteworthy losers was PTC Therapeutics (PTCT), which declined $2.23, or 7.02%, to $29.52 after Jefferies analyst Gena Wang downgraded the stock to Underperform, saying yesterday's FDA panel for BioMarin's (BMRN) competing muscular dystrophy drug is a negative for PTC. BioMarin, meanwhile, slipped 1.78% to $96.06 for the day, while Sarepta (SRPT), also competing in the same therapeutic space, was up fractionally to $37.49. Also lower were SunEdison (SUNE) and TerraForm Power (TERP), which crashed a respective 21.6% and 17.67% after research firm UBS downgraded both stocks on "considerable" risks suggested by recent management changes at Terraform. TerraForm Global (GLBL), meanwhile, plunged 21.26% to $4.11. Separately, Dow Chemical (DOW) slipped 2.72% to $51.93 after the EPA withdrew approval for the company's Enlist Duo herbicide. INDEXES: The Dow rose 1.20, or 0.01%, to 17,813.39, the Nasdaq gained 13.33, or 0.26%, to 5,116.14, and the S&P 500 slipped 0.27, or 0.01%, to 2,088.87.

08:37 EDTTSLATesla early January volume report should ease concerns, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Dan Galves said he expects short-term worries currently plaguing Tesla Motors, namely Q4 volume concerns and fears about the Model X production ramp, to be positively addressed by early January when Tesla discloses its volumes for the quarter. Galves, who thinks it is possible for Tesla to reach 17,000 units in the quarter and views Monday's release of full Model X specs and pricing as a sign that a production ramp is "in sight," keeps an Outperform rating and $325 price target on Tesla shares.

16:29 EDTJCPJ.C. Penney announces plans to retire $500M asset-based term loan
J. C. Penney Company announced that it has received $500M of incremental bank commitments to increase the size of the Revolving Line of Credit under its existing Senior Secured Asset-Based Credit Facility to $2.35B from $1.85B. In connection with upsizing the revolving credit facility, the Company also intends to prepay and retire the outstanding principal amount of its $500M Term Loan previously issued under the ABL, which is scheduled to mature in June 2019. The Company expects to close these transactions in December.The Company expects that retirement of the ABL Term Loan will reduce interest expense by approximately $20M annually, beginning in 2016. The $2.35B ABL revolving line of credit, which will also mature in June 2019, will remain available for seasonal working capital needs and general corporate purposes. Marvin Ellison, chief executive officer, said, "We proactively pursued this transaction to reduce our long-term debt and ongoing interest expense and to further enhance our financial flexibility while maintaining our strong liquidity position as we continue to make progress on our goal of $1.2B in EBITDA by 2017."
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).
