12:10 EDTAMZN, LTD, COH, SHLD, MED, NFLX, GPS, JWN, M, GOL, URBN, KORS, SKSOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday despite a report that indicated U.S. home prices rose more than forecast in October. Volume is light due to the holiday, but also because investors are still anxiously seeking a resolution to the fiscal cliff standoff in Washington... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the S&P/Case-Shiller index of property values in 20 cities increased 4.3% in October from a year ago, versus expectations for a 4% gain. The Richmond Fed December manufacturing survey fell to 5 from a prior reading of 9. Analysts had forecast a drop to a reading of 8. In Europe, most markets were closed. Asian markets, particularly Japan's, traded broadly higher for a second-straight session, as the official appointment of Shinzo Abe as Japan's prime minister continued to drive down the Yen and lift Tokyo-traded share prices... COMPANY NEWS: Retail and apparel makers' stocks slid after reports indicated that holiday sales were likely weaker than expected. MasterCard's SpendingPulse unit estimated that retail sales from October 28 through Christmas Eve increased just 0.7% from a year ago. Separate data from retail consulting firm Customer Growth Partners estimated sales rose about 2.8%, which would make this the worst holiday-shopping season since 2009. Among the stocks performing significantly worse than their respective averages were Macy’s (M), Sears (SHLD), Saks (SKS), Nordstrom (JWN), Coach (COH), Michael Kors (KORS), Gap (GPS), Limited (LTD) and Urban Outfitters (URBN)... Netflix‘s (NFLX) streaming video service suffered an outage on Christmas Eve, which the company blamed on technical problems at Web service provider Amazon.com (AMZN)... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was GOL Linhas (GOL), a low-cost airline in Latin America which saw its U.S. listed shares rise 10% after the company announced late Friday that it has segregated the activities of its "Smiles" loyalty program, a business unit it previously said may be put up for an initial public offering. Also higher were shares of Herbalife (HLF), up over 6% after the Wall Street Journal said the company has hired a prominent law firm to assist in its fight with investor Bill Ackman. Among the noteworthy losers was Medifast (MED), down nearly 12% after the company's acting CFO resigned... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 45.94, or 0.35%, to 13,093.14; the Nasdaq was down 21.00, or 0.70%, to 2,991.60; and the S&P 500 was down 7.93, or 0.56%, to 1,418.73.

06:16 EDTAMZNAmazon unveils 'Make an Offer' for customers to negotiate lower prices
Amazon.com has announced the "Make an Offer" experience that allows customers to negotiate even lower prices on thousands of items. Expanding on Amazon’s traditional fixed price model, the new pricing feature allows customers to offer to buy items at even lower prices. If agreed upon, customers can then purchase the items at a savings from the listed price. To start, more than 150,000 items from sellers on Amazon are enabled with the "Make an Offer" experience across Sports and Entertainment Collectibles, Collectible Coins and Fine Art. The new feature will expand to hundreds of thousands of items from sellers in 2015. The "Make an Offer" feature is not an auction format. All negotiations are 1:1 and private between individual customers and sellers. A seller is able to accept a customer’s offer at any time. The intention is to lower prices, and a customer negotiating with a seller will never pay more than the listed price.
