12:56 EDTDG, DD, ROCK, MTW, NKE, LITB, FINLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday with DuPont's (DD) slide weighing down the blue-chip Dow more than Nike's (NKE) advance is helping it. Stocks began the session in negative territory but soon turned mixed, where they have remained, with the Nasdaq the leader and the Dow the laggard. The averages have stalled, but they still remain on track to be positive for the month of June, though the month does not end until after Monday's session. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the final University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for June rose to 82.5, which beat the consensus expectation for a reading of 81.9. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of athletic apparel and footwear giant Nike and sports shoe retailer Finish Line (FINL) climbed after both companies reported better than expected quarterly sales and profits. Near midday, Dow member Nike rose 1.6%, while Finish Line advanced 1.4%... Another member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, DuPont, moved in the opposite direction, falling over 4.5% after the chemical company cut its earnings outlook for its second quarter and its current fiscal year. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was LightInTheBox (LITB), which jumped 20% after the company raised its Q2 revenue outlook. Also higher was Manitowoc (MTW), which gained 9% and was upgraded to Hold at Jefferies after activist Relational Investors took an 8.5% stake in the company and urged for a spin-off of its food business. Among the noteworthy losers was Gibraltar Industries (ROCK), which dropped nearly 10% after cutting its Q2 outlook, stating that end market demand in the quarter did not rebound as expected. Also lower were shares of discount retailer Dollar General (DG), which fell over 7% after Chief Executive Officer Rick Dreiling announced plans to retire. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 36.58, or 0.22%, to 16,809.55, the Nasdaq was up 7.41, or 0.17%, to 4,386.45, and the S&P 500 was down 1.60, or 0.08%, to 1,955.62.
