12:40 EDTJPM, MCD, MWW, QCOM, PANL, BWCOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday, extending yesterday's slide after the futures trading had hinted a reversal might be ahead. The averages began the session slightly higher but failed to gain any upside momentum and eventually crossed into negative territory. When it was reported that EU finance ministers wanted to wait for a report from the Troika before committing bailout funds to Greece, the averages weakened further. Although each of the indices remain lower, trading has been range bound near the flat line... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims fell by 8,000 to 355,000, which was lower than expected, but the data was impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The U.S. trade deficit unexpectedly 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 Bank of England also held its rates steady and halted expansion of its third round of quantitative easing. The Greek Parliament passed austerity measures, but reports indicated that euro zone finance ministers may delay its next trance of aid until they get a full report on the country’s compliance with the terms of its bailout... COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan (JPM) shares briefly rallied but pulled back to be up just over 0.5% near midday after the company said it had been given Federal Reserve approval to buyback up to $3B in stock in the first quarter of 2013. The bank also disclosed that it had reached an 'agreement in principle' to settle certain probes from the Securities and Exchange Commission... McDonald’s (MCD) said comparable store sales fell 1.8% in October, which was the first monthly decline in nine years, and shares fell about 1.5%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Monster Worldwide (MWW), up over 16% following its stronger than expected earnings report and announcement of restructuring plans. Also higher were shares of Qualcomm (QCOM), which rose more than 6% as Deutsche Bank raised its price target on the stock to $74, citing the company's results and guidance. Among the noteworthy losers was Universal Display (PANL), down 18% after it lowered its FY12 revenue view, which prompted downgrades at Wedbush and Avondale but also defenses of the stock from JMP Securities and Cowen. Also declining was Babcock & Wilcox (BWC) down 11% after its earnings and revenue fell short of expectations... INDICES: Near 12:30 pm ET, the Dow was down 32.63, or 0.25%, to 12,900.10; the Nasdaq was down 16.27, or 0.55%, to 2,921.02; and the S&P 500 was down 5.09, or 0.37%, to 1,389.44.
