12:28 EDTNFLX, SCS, FB, GOOG, CJES, NBR, BCS, IRM, BBBY, GPRO, TWTR, MLHROn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday after a report showed that consumer spending in the U.S. rose less than expected in May. Stocks began the day in quiet fashion as the averages opened just below the flat line, but the market began to drift lower and eventually gained momentum to the downside, pushing the Dow to a triple digit loss. The market began to pare its losses by mid-morning but has still not been able to come back entirely from its early weakness. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims in the third week of June came in at 312k, which was a hair above the 310K forecast. Personal income rose 0.4% in May, matching expectations, but consumer spending grew only 0.2%, missing the forecast for 0.4% growth. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Barclays (BCS) trading in New York plunged nearly 6% after New York's Attorney General announced a lawsuit against the bank arising from the operation of its dark pool and other aspects of its electronic trading division... Outside of its own news, analysts at the U.K. bank initiated coverage on eight large Internet stocks today, recommending shares of Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG) and Twitter (TWTR) while advising against owning Netflix (NFLX). Near noon following the initiations, Netflix fell nearly 1%, Google lost 0.7%, Facebook was little changed, and Twitter advanced 4%... GoPro (GPRO) rose 30% to trade near $31 near noon after the action camera maker priced its initial public offering of stock at $24 a share, which was the high end of its expected range. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Iron Mountain (IRM), which jumped 19% after its board of directors approved the company’s conversion to a real estate investment trust, or REIT, following the receipt of favorable private letter rulings from the IRS. Also higher was Nabors (NBR), which rose 7% and was upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Guggenheim after agreeing to combine its completion and production services businesses in the U.S. and Canada with C&J Energy Services (CJES). Among the noteworthy losers was home furnishings retailer Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), which fell 8.5% near noon after the company's first quarter results and second quarter profit outlook missed analysts' consensus estimates. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week low of $54.95. Also lower following their earnings reports were office furnishings providers Steelcase (SCS), which fell 14%, and Herman Miller (MLHR), which dropped nearly 7%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 77.66, or 0.46%, to 16,789.85, the Nasdaq was down 16.56, or 0.38%, to 4,363.19, and the S&P 500 was down 8.35, or 0.43%, to 1,951.18.
