12:54 EDTDAL, STZ, KR, STEM, JPM, VITC, SFLY, CAMPOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after ADP's hiring report gave some reassurance that tomorrow's monthly non-farm payroll report report may be a strong one. Despite ADP's employment change report soundly beating the consensus forecast, stock index futures showed little reaction, leading to a quiet open for the broader market. The averages have moved in a narrow range since the open and have done so on light volume. ECONOMIC EVENTS: Payroll provider ADP estimated that U.S. companies added 281,000 workers to their payrolls in June, which was well above the consensus 210,000 forecast. Factory orders fell 0.5% in May, versus the forecast for them to be down 0.4%. COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan Chase (JPM) chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon announced to employees and shareholders that he has been diagnosed with throat cancer. "The good news is that the prognosis from my doctors is excellent, the cancer was caught quickly, and my condition is curable," Dimon stated, adding that he will be able to continue to be actively involved in the business and will continue to run the company as normal... Shares of beer and wine maker Constellation Brands (STZ) advanced 3% after after its quarterly results beat expectations and the company raised its FY15 earnings view. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was online healthy living products retailer Vitacost.com (VITC), which jumped 27% after grocer Kroger (KR) agreed to buy the company for $280M, or $8.00 per share. Also higher was StemCells (STEM), which rose 15% after Brinson Patrick initiated coverage of the stock with an Outperform rating and $7 price target, saying it expects the company to have robust Phase II data over the next 24 months for its neural stem cells in both chronic spinal cord injury and geographic atrophy age-related macular degeneration. Another stock trading higher was Shutterfly (SFLY), which gained 14% after Bloomberg, citing sources, said the company has hired investment bank Qatalyst Partners to help it potentially sell itself. Among the noteworthy losers was CalAmp (CAMP), which fell 11% after reporting quarterly results and second quarter guidance that missed analysts' consensus estimates. Also lower were shares of Delta Air Lines (DAL), which fell 5% after reporting its passenger revenue per available seat mile, or PRASM, rose 4.5% in June and noting that corporate and domestic strength offset lower than expected international yields driven by industry-wide capacity increases and lower business demand to Latin America due to the World Cup. After Delta's report, Cowen suggested using the associated weakness in airline stocks as a buying opportunity. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 14.66, or 0.09%, to 16,970.73, the Nasdaq was up 4.68, or 0.1%, to 4,463.33, and the S&P 500 was up 0.91, or 0.05%, to 1,974.23.
