17:01 EDTKSSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory despite two disappointing economic data points and a mixed report from social media giant Twitter (TWTR). The market moved in a narrow range for the opening half hour of trading but gained upside momentum following a much better than expected consumer confidence reading. The market continued to tack on points throughout the afternoon and closed at its highs, led by the Nasdaq, which gained 1.75% for the session. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., durable goods orders fell 1.3% in September, significantly undershooting expectations for them to have rise 0.7% in the month. The S&P Case-Shiller home price report showed prices were lower on a seasonally adjusted basis in the month of August compared to the prior month. A reading of consumer confidence surged to a seven-year high of 94.5 in October from a revised 89.0 final reading for September. The Richmond Fed's manufacturing index rose 6 points to 20 in October, beating expectations for it to have pulled back to 10. COMPANY NEWS: Twitter (TWTR) sunk $4.78, or 9.84%, to $43.78 after the social media company reported in-line profit and higher than expected Q3 revenue, but also reported a slowdown in user growth and provided weaker than expected Q4 guidance. Following last night's report, the stock was downgraded at RBC Capital, Nomura and Bank of America Merill Lynch to "Hold" or equivalent ratings, while Stifel lowered its rating on Twitter shares to Sell from Hold... Shares of Pfizer (PFE) edged up 6c, or 0.21%, to $29.09 after the pharmaceutical giant reported third quarter adjusted earnings per share and revenue that were a bit better than expected and narrowed its fiscal year profit outlook. Of note, Pfizer said during its earnings conference call that while proposed rule changes have made "inversions" more difficult, that meaningful value from inversion deals can still exists on a "case-by-case" basis. Shares of AstraZeneca (AZN), which was previously a target of Pfizer, gained 67c, or 0.95%, to $71.43 following Pfizer's comments.

Among the noteworthy losers was Kohl’s (KSS), which dropped $3.89, or 6.64%, to $54.66 after the department store operator’s outlook for third quarter same store sales and fiscal 2014 profit missed expectations. Also lower were shares of Coach (COH), which fell $2.15, or 5.95%, to $34.00 after the luxury handbag and accessory maker reported sales declined 9% on a constant currency basis in its first quarter.
