12:34 EDTNFLX, TWTR, AYI, FOLD, REGN, SNY, STAAOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply higher at midday in the first trading day of the month and the new quarter. The market has not had such a good start to the second half of a year since 2011. The day’s domestic economic data was generally in-line with expectations, while reports from abroad confirmed that manufacturing expanded last month in China and in the eurozone. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., two separate manufacturing readings were released. Markit's manufacturing purchasing manager's index for June had a final reading of 57.3, which was a hair below the 57.5 flash estimate but up from May's 56.4 reading. ISM's manufacturing index slipped very slightly to 55.3 in June from May's 55.4 figure. Construction spending increased 0.1% in May, missing the forecast for 0.5% growth. In China, the purchasing manager's index reading from HSBC and Markit came in at 50.7, which was a bit below the preliminary reading but above the 50 mark that indicates expansion for the first time since December. In Europe, Markit's final eurozone manufacturing PMI for June came in at 51.8, which was down from 52.2 in the prior month and below the earlier flash estimate of 51.9, but still indicated expansion in the sector. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Netflix (NFLX) climbed 6% after Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock in a note to investors earlier today, predicting that Netflix's total worldwide market will more than double over the next three years and its subscriber growth will continue to exceed expectations... Twitter (TWTR) rose more than 4% after hiring Anthony Noto as its new Chief Financial Officer away from Goldman Sachs (GS), which had handled the social network's IPO. Noto served as a Managing Director in the Technology, Media and Telecom group at Goldman since October 2010 after having served as the CFO of the National Football League previously. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Amicus Therapeutics (FOLD), which rose 23% following upgrades at Leerink and Janney Capital that came a day after the company provided updates on its potential monotherapy for Fabry patients. Also higher was Regeneron (REGN), which advanced 7% after Sanofi (SNY) disclosed in a regulatory filing that it plans to increase its beneficial ownership stake in its smaller pharmaceutical industry peer to 22.5% from 20.5%. Among the noteworthy losers was STAAR Surgical (STAA), which dropped 18% after it received a warning letter from the FDA following the regulator's inspection of a manufacturing plant. Also lower following its earnings reports was lighting solutions maker Acuity Brands (AYI), which fell 13% after its sales and profits missed expectations. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 134.80, or 0.8%, to 16,961.40, the Nasdaq was up 50.88, or 1.15%, to 4,459.06, and the S&P 500 was up 13.62, or 0.69%, to 1,973.85.

08:28 EDTTWTRTwitter may see 'paltry' MAU growth in Q2, Business Insider says
Twitter's monthly active users would have declined during Q2 if not for a boost from the World Cup, two sources told Business Insider, with one of those sources claiming Twitter will have 260M MAUs for the quarter, up only 2% from the 255M MAUs it reported in Q1. "It is not possible to say definitively from the data provided by Business Insider's two sources that Twitter's MAUs are in trouble," the report cautioned, noting that the data relied on comes from third-party developers and that the MAUs communicated were taken during non-standard time periods that don't sync with Twitter's calendar quarters.
