12:24 EDTYUMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The averages have moved in a narrow range as the price of crude continues to fall. Near noon, WTI crude was down another 5% to roughly $60 per barrel. The weakness is effecting equities, as investors are concerned the oil price weakness is indicative of the slowing global economy. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., House and Senate lawmakers reportedly reached a deal on a nearly $1.1T bill to fund most of the government through September and avert a shutdown. The EIA estimated crude oil supplies grew 1.5 Mmbbls last week, while consensus expected a 2.7 Mmbbls decrease. The Treasury budget statement for November is expected at 2:00 pm ET, with the consensus expectation for a deficit of $63B. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of JPMorgan (JPM) declined 2% after guidelines proposed yesterday by the Federal Reserve would likely result in the firm managing to a higher capital buffer. Additionally, JPMorgan CFO Marianne Lake, speaking earlier at a Goldman Sachs conference, said the bank sees its Q4 reported markets revenues down by a "high teens" percentage and that its "core" markets performance in Q4, excluding the sale of physical commodities and allocation of preferred dividend expense, is indicated down 4% to-date compared to last year's quarter. Lake became the latest bank executive to discuss a Q4 trading slump, after Bank of America (BAC) CEO Brian Moynihan, speaking yesterday at the same financial conference, said the bank expects its Q4 trading revenue to be down on both a linked-quarter and year-over-year basis. Also yesterday, Citigroup (C) CEO Michael Corbat estimated that the bank's Q4 markets revenue would be down year-over-year by about 5%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Analogic (ALOG), which rose 12% after the company reported better than expected quarterly earnings. Also higher was Novadaq (NVDQ), which gained 11.5% after the company signed a multi-year distributor agreement with LifeNet Health that analysts at Canaccord said could potentially be a big deal and materially help its near and long-term prospects. Among the noteworthy losers was Yum! Brands (YUM), which dropped nearly 5% after the owner of the KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell brands issued a negative preannouncement on its China business and provided lower than expected 2015 EPS guidance. Also lower were shares of Krispy Kreme (KKD), which sunk 8% after the donut maker reported weaker than expected earnings and revenue. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 164.41, or 0.92%, to 17,636.79, the Nasdaq was down 32.79, or 0.69%, to 4,733.68, and the S&P 500 was down 17.43, or 0.85%, to 2,042.39.
