12:20 EDTCATOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street have moved all over the place in a wild morning of trading. The averages opened sharply higher as oil prices rose above $34 a barrel. The Dow opened with triple digit gains but following reports from Iraq that it would increase oil production, and refutations of rumors that OPEC might cut production, the commodity began to weaken, taking equities with it. The averages turned negative and it looked like another rout might be in the making. Before the market fell too far, it gathered itself and moved back into positive ground and the major averages are now in the green, but not far from where they ended yesterday's session. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell to 278,000 last week, versus the expected 281,000 first-time claims. Durable goods orders dropped 5.1% in December, versus expectations for a decrease of 0.7%. The core reading, which removes transportation items, was down 1.2%, versus expectations for a decline of 0.1%. The National Association of Realtors' pending home sales index for December rose 0.1%, versus expectations for it to be up 0.9%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Facebook (FB) surged 14.5% after the social media giant's fourth quarter earnings and revenue beat expectations. Wall Street analysts were nearly unanimous in their praise following the report, with a number increasing their price targets for its shares... Caterpillar (CAT) reported better than expected quarterly earnings, excluding certain items, but its revenue came in below the consensus forecast and the heavy equipment maker warned that it does not anticipate an improvement in the world economy or commodity prices in 2016. The stock, which had declined almost 20% in the last three months prior to this morning's report, rebounded about 2% this morning after the company jumped over its lowered profit hurdle... Shares of eBay (EBAY) and PayPal (PYPL) diverged after the recently-split companies reported their respective fourth quarter results and gave guidance, with eBay falling 13% and PayPal rising 7% near midday... The Dow Jones US Healthcare ETF (IYH) fell over 2% at midday after a number of big-names in the space gave disappointing guidance. Celgene (CELG) fell 5% following its Q4 report and fiscal year outlook, while Abbott (ABT) dropped 8% in the wake of its own results and guidance. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Kinder Morgan (KMI), which rallied 8.5% after it was upgraded at Credit Suisse and Stifel. Also higher were Under Armour (UA), Dolby (DLB) and Deluxe (DLX), which gained 18%, 11% and 9%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. Among the noteworthy losers was OSI Systems (OSIS), which fell 35% and was downgraded to Hold at BB&T following downbeat quarterly earnings. Also lower were Qualcomm (QCOM) and Discover (DFS), which each dropped about 7% after their quarterly earnings reports. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 1.37, or 0.01%, to 15,945.83, the Nasdaq was up 21.12, or 0.47%, to 4,489.28, and the S&P 500 was up 3.36, or 0.18%, to 1,886.31.
