12:12 EDTNKE, NOK, MSFT, CTRP, QUNR, KT, GIMO, SPNCOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday as the market seeks to break the losing streak that began late last week. The Nasdaq, which has suffered the most over the past week, is today's early leader with a gain of about 0.7%. The Dow and S&P have moved into positive territory as well, but their gains have been more modest to this point in the trading day. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NFIB small business optimism index increased to 93.4 in March from a prior reading of 91.4, slightly beating expectations. The number of job openings was reported to have risen to 4.17M in February from a revised estimate of 3.87M in the prior month. In Asia, the Bank of Japan left its monetary stimulus program unchanged, as widely expected. The International Monetary Fund trimmed its outlook for global economic growth ahead of the spring World Bank meetings later this week. The IMF now forecasts that the world economy will expand 3.6% this year, which is a slight downgrade from its 3.7% estimate in January. COMPANY NEWS: Apparel and footwear giant Nike (NKE) led all advancers on the blue-chip Dow, rising almost 3% after research firm Stifel upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold to reflect recent weakness, reduced consensus expectations, and strong fundamentals... Shares of Nokia (NOK) trading in New York advanced over 5% after a deal to sell substantially all of its Devices & Services business to Microsoft (MSFT) received regulatory approval in China. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Korean phone and high-speed Internet services provider KT Corporation (KT), which rose more than 7% after the stock was upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman. Also higher were shares of Chinese travel website operators Ctrip.com (CTRP), which advanced 7%, and Qunar (QUNR), which gained 8%, after Bloomberg said the companies are in talks on a range of possibilities, from a partnership to a full merger. Among the noteworthy losers was Gigamon (GIMO), which plunged 32% after the company lowered its first quarter revenue outlook largely based on an expected large transaction from an existing customer in EMEA that did not occur. Also lower after cutting its revenue view was medical device maker Spectranetics (SPNC), which fell 11% following the negative pre-announcement. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 34.52, or 0.21%, to 16,280.39, the Nasdaq was up 29.73, or 0.73%, to 4,109.48, and the S&P 500 was up 6.07, or 0.33%, to 1,851.11.
