16:27 EDTMCD, ZGNX, UNXL, PCLN, HPQ, INFIOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street managed to cling to slight gains after a lack of fiscal cliff news coincided with a lack of trading volume. The focus on ongoing negotiations in Washington kept many investors on the sidelines again... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was reported. In Europe, Italy's benchmark bond yields spiked and its stock market fell sharply after Prime Minister Mario Monti's surprise announcement of his intention to resign, which will likely prompt early elections. In China, industrial output had its best growth rate since March, rising 10.1% in November from a year ago. However, exports slowed sharply last month, rising 2.9% year over year after growing at an 11.6% pace in October. Import growth was unchanged from a year earlier, growing 2.4%... COMPANY NEWS: On the Dow, McDonald's (MCD) reported its global same-store sales rose 2.4% in November, driven mainly by strong results in the U.S. Shares advanced 93c, or 1.05%, to $89.41 after the better than expected data. A move up in shares of fellow Dow member Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) was widely attributed to speculation that activist investor Carl Icahn is building a stake, though CNBC's David Faber disputed those rumors. HP's stock closed off its early day highs, but still added 35c, or 2.55%, to $14.16... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Uni-Pixel (UNXL), up another $5.29, or 54.26%, to $15.04 after rising over 18% Friday. The company said Friday it reached a deal for its technology to be used by "a large PC manufacturer" and this morning Craig-Hallum raised its price target on shares to $22 from $13. Also higher were shares of Infinity Pharmaceuticals (INFI), up $4.83, or 21.42%, to $27.35 after announcing positive trial data and receiving an upgrade to Buy from Hold as Stifel Nicolaus. Among the noteworthy losers was Zogenix (ZGNX), down $1.21, or 51.27%, to $1.15 after an FDA advisory panel voted against recommending approval for its Zohydro ER pain relief drug. Also lower were shares of priceline.com (PCLN), down $33.14, or 5.03%, to $625.96 after the stock was downgraded at Deutsche Bank to Hold from Buy with the firm citing intensified competition in 2013... INDICES: The Dow was up 14.75, or 0.11%, to 13,169.88; the Nasdaq was up 8.92, or 0.30%, to 2,986.96; and the S&P 500 was up 0.48, or 0.03%, to 1,418.55.
