16:18 EDTSHLD, DVAX, PENN, JPM, FLO, DELL, SHF, CSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher on the day after positive news out of Washington regarding the fiscal cliff saw stocks surge back into the green near midday. The averages drifted just north of the flat-line for the remainder of the trading session before riding a late day rally to head into the weekend with modest gains, though not enough to keep them from finishing down on the week... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., industrial production unexpectedly declined 0.4% in October, compared to forecasts for a 0.2% gain, though the Fed said that Superstorm Sandy cut total production by almost 1 percentage point... COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan (JPM) and Credit Suisse (CS) both agreed to pay settlements relating to their sale of residential mortgage-backed securities. JPMorgan agreed to pay $297M, with most of that payment related to Bear Stearns actions, while Credit Suisse will pay $120M to settle the charges.

MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Penn National (PENN), up $10.62, or 28.24%, to $48.23 after announcing its intent to separate its gaming assets and real estate assets into two publicly traded companies. Also higher were shares of Schiff Nutrition (SHF), up $9.84, or 29.01%, to $43.76 after the Reckitt Bensicker commenced a tender offer to acquire the company for $42 per share, and Flower Foods (FLO), which rose $2.06, or 10.17%, to $22.32 after Hostess Brands said it would liquidate, which could allow Flower to gain market share or look at a deal to acquire Hostess assets. Among the noteworthy losers was Dynavax (DVAX), down $2.19, or 47.30%, to $2.44 after an FDA advisory committee voted that there was insufficient data to adequately support the safety of its Heplisav vaccine. Also trading lower were shares of Sears Holding (SHLD), down $10.99, or 18.79%, to $47.49, after the company reported its domestic comparable store sales declined 3.1% in Q3...

12:28 EDTJPMOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday despite data showing that retail sales unexpectedly fell last month. With a nuclear pact agreed to by Iran and the Greek debt crisis pushed to the back burner for the time being, earnings are set to take center stage, beginning with the reports this morning from two of the country's biggest banks and a bluechip healthcare conglomerate. With stocks working on their fourth consecutive day in positive territory, the Dow has pushed back above the 18,000 level. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales unexpectedly fell 0.3% in June, versus expectations for growth of 0.3%. If autos and gas are removed from the data, the core reading was down 0.2%, versus expectations for it to be up 0.4%. The import price index fell 0.1% last month, versus expectations for it to be up 0.1%. Business inventories grew 0.3% in May, matching the consensus expectation. In Europe, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney told U.K. officials that “the point at which interest rates may begin to rise is moving closer.” Additionally, Iran reached a deal on restrictions and inspections intended to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic by six world powers. The agreement still faces a political fight in the U.S. before taking effect, but President Barack Obama has vowed to veto any congressional effort to block its implementation. COMPANY NEWS: Twitter (TWTR) shares spiked late in the morning after a questionable takeover report appeared on a website that attempted to mimic Bloomberg. A Bloomberg spokesman said soon afterward that the Twitter takeover story being attributed to the news service is a fake, while a Twitter spokesperson also denied the report of an alleged deal in a statement to Reuters... The nation's largest bank, JPMorgan (JPM), earned $1.54 per share in earnings in the second quarter of the year, which was up from the same period of last year and above the $1.44 per share consensus estimate. Peer Wells Fargo (WFC) reported quarterly earnings that were in-line with expectations on a revenue that, like JPMorgan, was a bit below the consensus forecast. Shares of each of the banks rose about 1% near noon following their reports... Dow member Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), however, slipped about 1% after reporting better than expected earnings, revenue that was in-line with expectations and raising its fiscal year adjusted profit forecast. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Micron (MU), which jumped 11% after The Wall Street Journal reported last night that China's state-owned Tsinghua Unigroup had offered to acquire the memory chip maker for $23B, or $21 per share. Also higher was Matrix Service (MTRX), which gained 18% after the Oil & Gas industry service provider issued guidance for its revenue and earnings in fiscal 2016. Among the noteworthy losers was Vince Holding (VNCE), which sunk 19% after the fashion brand owner announced the resignation of its CEO, which follows the resignation of its CFO less than a month ago. Also lower was Navient (NAVI), which fell 10% after the company lowered its outlook to reflect marketplace conditions for private loan portfolio purchases and its cost of funds. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 60.30, or 0.34%, to 18,037.98, the Nasdaq was up 34.68, or 0.68%, to 5,106.20, and the S&P 500 was up 8.21, or 0.39%, to 2,107.81.
