Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower for the second consecutive day, as concern over the fiscal cliff and uncertainty in Europe continues to loom over investors. Stocks opened the day slightly higher, but quickly moved into negative territory where they stayed for the rest of the trading session. Among the notable companies reporting earnings after the bell today are Walt Disney (DIS) and Nordstrom (JWN)... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, weekly jobless claims fell by 8,000 to 355,000, which was lower than expected, though the data was impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The U.S. trade deficit narrowed in September to $41.5B, as exports climbed 3.1 % and imports rose 1.5% as well. In Europe, the European Central Bank held its main interest rate at 0.75% and reiterated its willingness to make bond purchases to aid Spain, though the nation continues to resist asking for a bailout. The Greek Parliament passed austerity measures, but reports indicated that euro zone finance ministers may delay its next tranche of aid until they get a full report on the country’s compliance with the terms of its bailout... COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan (JPM) announced that it has been given Federal Reserve approval to buyback up to $3B in stock in the first quarter of 2013, and the bank also disclosed that it had reached an 'agreement in principle' to settle certain probes from the Securities and Exchange Commission. Shares of JPMorgan fell slightly, declining 8c, or 0.2%, to $40.40... Fellow Dow member McDonald’s (MCD) said comparable store sales suffered their first monthly decline in nine years, falling 1.8% in October. Its shares were among the index's worst performers, falling $1.73, or 1.99%, to $85.13... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was InterMune (ITMN), up $1.36, or 16.67%, to $9.52 after the company's Q3 earnings beat consensus estimates and the stock was upgraded to Buy at Canaccord. Also higher was Monster Worldwide (MWW), up 58c, or 10.16%, to $6.29 following a stronger than expected earnings report and announcement of restructuring plans. Among the noteworthy losers was Universal Display (PANL), down $5.08, or 18.03%, to $23.10 after the company lowered its FY12 revenue view, and the stock received downgrades at Wedbush and Avondale, though defenses of the stock came out of JMP Securities and Cowen. Also lower were shares of CafePress (PRSS), down $1.33, or 21.28%, to $4.92 after the company reported disappointing earnings and guidance. INDICES: The Dow was down 121.41, or 0.94%, to 12,811.32; the Nasdaq was down 41.71, or 1.42%, to 2,895.58; and the S&P 500 was down 17.02, or 1.22%, to 1,377.51.

12:21 EDTJPMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday despite better than expected quarterly reports from two of the nation's largest financial institutions. Stock futures improved during the pre-market trading session, leading to a higher open for the broader market, following better than expected earnings reports from JP Morgan (JPM) and Goldman Sachs (GS). The earnings news also came alongside another huge M&A deal, as tobacco giants Reynolds American (RAI) and Lorillard (LO) confirmed plans to merge. However, the major averages weakened throughout the morning and fell into negative ground against the backdrop of Fed Chair Janet Yellen giving testimony on Capital Hill. In the Board of Governors' Monetary Policy Report, the central bank said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries." ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales increased 0.2% in June compared to the month prior, making for the weakest reading since January and missing the consensus forecast for an increase of 0.6%. The Empire State manufacturing index climbed to a four-year high of 25.6 in July, beating expectations for a reading of 16.5. Import prices rose 0.1% in June, with export prices slipping 0.4%. Business inventories grew 0.5% in May, which was just below the 0.6% consensus growth expectation. In Europe, Germany's ZEW survey missed expectations, as both its Current Situation and Expectations reading were lower than forecast. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of JPMorgan advanced nearly 4% after the bank reported a profit of $1.46 a share, which included a legal expense of 13c a share, beating analysts' consensus forecast of $1.29. The earnings report comes after CEO Jamie Dimon recently disclosed that he has throat cancer. During the company's conference call, Dimon said he was "feeling great," that doctors had found no evidence of cancer anywhere except in the location where it had originally been detected, and that his prognosis for recovery is "excellent"... Also in the large-cap bank sector, Goldman Sachs' headline earnings and revenue similarly beat expectations. The firm, which said it ranks first in worldwide announced and completed mergers and acquisitions for the year-to-date, advanced about 1% following its report... Along with JPMorgan in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) reported quarterly sales and profits that beat expectations and the healthcare conglomerate raised its fiscal year EPS view to $5.85-$5.92 from $5.75-$5.85. However, its increased outlook range still fell short of the $5.90 per share consensus forecast that analysts had prior to its report... Reynolds American confirmed news that has been speculated for many weeks, announcing that it will acquire peer Lorillard in a cash-and-stock transaction currently valued at $68.88 per Lorillard share, or a total of $27.4B, including the assumption of net debt. Shares of both fell afterward, with Lorillard down 8% to trade near $61.75 at midday and Reynolds slipping 5%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was small-cap pharma biotechnology research company Codexis (CDXS), which surged nearly 50% after announcing a collaboration and license agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Among the noteworthy losers was Aaron's (AAN), which is engaged in the lease ownership and retail sale of a variety of consumer products. Its stock fell over 6% after the company lowered its second quarter outlook, citing lower than expected performance of its core business as the reason for the revision. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 33.45, or 0.2%, to 17,021.97, the Nasdaq was down 40.48, or 0.91%, to 4,399.94, and the S&P 500 was down 9.24, or 0.47%, to 1,967.86.

In Fixed Income & Equities, JPMorgan expects the current environment to persist into Q3 with normal seasonal trends. In Securities Services, sees revenue to decrease by approximately $100M in Q3 from $1.14B in Q2, due to seasonality.
