12:12 EDTLGFOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the day lower and have seen little in the way of buying since the open. As the market digested the monthly jobs data and watched the price of oil turn negative, the selling that had taken a two day break was renewed. The Nasdaq is the biggest loser, falling over 2%, while the Dow is down about 1%. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., nonfarm payrolls rose 151,000 in January, versus expectations for an increase of 190,000. The unemployment rate fell to 4.9%, versus expectations for it to stay at 5.0%. Average hourly earnings climbed 0.5% month-over-month, versus the consensus forecast for them to rise 0.3%. The trade deficit widened 2.7% to $43.4B in December, as exports dipped 0.3% and imports rose 0.3%. A report on Consumer Credit growth in December is due out at 3 pm ET. COMPANY NEWS: The shares of LinkedIn (LNKD) plunged 40% after the professional network reported stronger than expected fourth quarter results, but its 2016 guidance came in significantly below expectations. At least nine Wall Street research firms responded to the guidance miss by downgrading the stock... Also tumbling in the wake of its quarterly report was "Big Data" software provider Tableau (DATA), which fell 47% after its full-year guidance came in significantly below expectations. Tableau blamed its guidance miss on weaker IT spending trends, as well as competition, and a number of other companies that sell software to businesses also fell following its report, including peer Splunk (SPLK), NetSuite (N), Salesforce (CRM) and Workday (WDAY). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Cempra (CEMP), which gained about 5% after it said that its solithromycin drug met primary and secondary objectives in its Phase 3 study. Also higher were Tyson Foods (TSN) and Post Holdings (POST), which gained 10% and 11.5%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. Among the noteworthy losers was Vertex (VRTX), which fell 5% after the FDA said that it cannot currently approve a label expansion for Kalydeco in children with residual function mutations. Also lower were Lion's Gate (LGF), YRC Worldwide (YRCW), and Redbox-parent Outerwall (OUTR), which were down 33%, 30%, and 17%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 171.21, or 1.04%, to 16,245.37, the Nasdaq was down 110.39, or 2.45%, to 4,399.17, and the S&P 500 was down 27.10, or 1.41%, to 1,888.35.
11:06 EDTLGFAmid selloff, Piper still bullish on Lionsgate shares
Piper Jaffray analyst James Marsh says he remains bullish on shares of Lionsgate with the stock down 29% after the company reported Q3 results. Lionsgate missed expectations as Mockingjay 2's production budget pushed margins below expectations and the timing of TV deliveries in the quarter impacted results, Marsh tells investors in a post-earnings research note. However, management continues to build out its TV segment at an accelerated pace, the analyst contends. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the name.

12:53 EDTLGFBox Office Battle: 'Kung Fu Panda 3' expected to kick 'Revenant' from top spot
DreamWorks Animation's (DWA) "Kung Fu Panda 3" featuring Jack Black is expected to break the record for the largest January opening for an animated feature, topping the opening of "The Nut Job" in 2014. The first two films in the "Kung Fu Panda" franchise took in $60.2M and $47.6M, respectively, in their opening weekends and grossed a total of nearly $1.3B worldwide. With a strong base of Po the Panda fans and the popularity of a recent TV show, conservative early estimates say "Panda 3" is expected to bring in $35M-$50M. Also opening this weekend are Disney's (DIS) "The Finest Hours," starring Chris Pine, and Open Road Films' "Fifty Shades of Black," starring Marlon Wayans. "The Finest Hours" may disappoint, with expectations topping out at $10M in its opening weekend. "Fifty Shades of Black," meanwhile, is the latest spoof movie from the team of Wayans and Michael Tiddes from "Haunted House" fame. The last film from Wayans had an opening weekend of $8.8M, and this one is currently expected to take in a similar amount. Both films will battle with Fox's (FOX, FOXA) survival story and Oscar contender "The Revenant," starring Leonardo Dicaprio, and Disney's (DIS) "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" for spots in the top five. "The Revenant" and "Star Wars" should each take in $9M-$12M even as they continue to lose theaters this coming weekend. Other publicly traded companies involved in filmmaking include Lionsgate (LGF), Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK), and Sony (SNE).

17:55 EDTLGF'The Revenant' tops box office as 'Ride Along 2' sags
"The Revenant" clawed past "Ride Along 2" as this weekend's snow storm left several box office newcomers grasping for ticket sales. WEEKEND LEADER: Fox's (FOX, FOXA) "The Revenant" grossed $16M domestically for the weekend of January 24. The Leonardo DiCaprio-led survival Western was expected to take $19M-$21.6M, though results may have been dampened by the East Coast winter storm. BOX OFFICE RUNNERS-UP: Disney's (DIS) "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" earned $14.3M and now stands at $1.94B globally. Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) subsidiary Universal's "Ride Along 2" dipped to $13M against expectations for $18M-$18.7M, with critics and audiences generally lukewarm on the film despite its $34M open last weekend. Rounding out the weekend's top five were Lionsgate's (LGF) "Dirty Grandpa" and STX Entertainment's "The Boy," with the two newcomers debuting at a respective $11.5M and $11.3M.
