12:22 EDTNFLX, TRV, DD, UTX, WHR, DAL, LXK, RSH, COHOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after the delayed jobs report for September showed employers added a disappointing 148,000 jobs in the month, though the unemployment rate edged further down toward 7%. Though the jobs data missed the mark it is already dated and did represent the 43rd consecutive month of employment growth, which was enough to push the S&P to its fourth consecutive day hitting an all-time high. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The Labor Department's previously delayed employment report for September showed the economy added 148,000 jobs in September, well below analystsí expectations for 185,000 and down from the nearly 200,000 jobs added in the prior month. The unemployment rate, however, dipped to 7.2% from 7.3%. The Richmond Fed's manufacturing index inched up to 1 in October from a 0 reading in the prior month. Construction spending rose 0.6% in August, beating expectations for it to have grown 0.4% during the month. COMPANY NEWS: Netflix (NFLX) last night reported stronger than expected quarterly results and the stock opened nearly 10% higher this morning. But the shares were down about 4% near noon, after several analysts warned that the stock may not be attractive following its rapid and steep rally... Among the many companies reporting earnings last night and this morning were three members of the Dow Jones Industrial Index: DuPont (DD), Travelers (TRV), and United Technologies (UTX). All three reported headline earnings that beat consensus, though UTX also narrowed its full-year profit forecast and saw its shares slide nearly 1% near noon. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was appliance maker Whirlpool (WHR), which rallied over 11% after the company's adjusted earnings beat forecasts and it raised its full year profit outlook. Also higher following their earnings reports were printer maker and business service provider Lexmark (LXK), which rose 7%, and Delta Air Lines (DAL), which advanced 4%. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were electronics retailer RadioShack (RSH), which dropped over 23%, and handbag maker Coach (COH), which fell almost 8%. INDEXES: Near noon, the Dow was up 60.75, or 0.39%, to 15,452.95; the Nasdaq was up 6.63, or 0.17%, to 3,926.68; and the S&P 500 was up 8.29, or 0.48%, to 1,752.95.
