December 10, 2012
16:27 EDTMCD, HPQ, UNXL, INFI, PCLN, ZGNXOn 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.

12:58 EDTMCDMcDonald's temporarily closes certain Russian restaurants
The company said, "Based on a claim from a federal consumer agency, on Aug 20 2014, McDonald’s restaurants on Pushkin Square, Manezh Square and Prospect Mira were temporary closed. We are closely studying the subject of the documents to define what should be done to re-open the restaurants as soon as possible. Our main priority is to serve our customers with top quality menu items. We will continue taking care of our employees and will do our best to continue the success of McDonald’s business in Russia."
11:54 EDTHPQHP technical comments before earnings
In the prior three months the shares have outperformed the broader averages, rising by more than 8%. The trend has had a decidedly bullish slant, with $36 at the high and $33 at the low. These bounds give us some guidance as to how price might behave depending on earnings and guidance. A breakout above $36 and notably the 52-week high at $36.21, would appear very probable if the news is better than already high expectations. Next major resistance would be at $38, a level not seen since early 2011. An extreme upside reaction could push the stock to $40.34. Given the strong bullish sentiment in the name, the risk may be more to the downside on a disappointment. The key level to watch on the downside if news or guidance is worse than expected is at the 50-day moving average, last at $34.57. A breakdown below the 50-day would break the intermediate-term uptrend and that would have bearish implications for future price. The $33 level would become the next important zone following such a break. A snap below $33 on an extreme disappointment would see $31.48 as next support.
