12:22 EDTNKE, V, ECYT, ANN, SYMC, RALYOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with the Dow and S&P rising to record highs and the Nasdaq a bit below its starting level. Stocks began the session in positive ground as traders rolled out positions due to “quadruple witching,” when stock index futures, stock index options, stock options, and single stock futures expire. The market soon found a level and has moved in a fairly narrow range during the morning, which is typical as quadruple expirations days tend to be more volatile at the open and the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no notable economic reports were released. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Dow-member Nike (NKE) fell 3% despite the company reporting third quarter adjusted profits that beat analysts’ forecast. Nike said it expect its revenue to come in at the top end of its high-single digit growth target range in this fiscal year, but cautioned that the devaluation of developing market currencies will be a "significant drag" on reported revenue, gross margin and profit growth in fiscal year 2015... Visa (V) shares gained over 2.5% after Bloomberg and Reuters reported that a federal appeals court ruled the Federal Reserve was authorized to cap debit card swipe fees, reserving a prior lower court ruling in favor of retailers who oppose the cap. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Endocyte (ECYT), which was up more than 90% near midday after the company announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use of the European Medicines Agency issued "positive opinions" for conditional authorizations for its Vynfinit, Folcepri and Neocepri treatments. The company also announced a Phase 2b lung cancer trial met its primary endpoint. Following both pieces of news, no fewer than three analyst firms increased their price target on the stock. Also higher was Ann Inc. (ANN), which gained 14% after Golden Gate Capital last night disclosed a 9.5% stake in the retailer and said it plans to leverages its retail and equity experience to create value for shareholders. Among the noteworthy losers was Symantec (SYMC), which sunk 14% near noon after the company last night announced it terminated its CEO, Steve Bennett. No fewer than five analysts downgraded shares of the company following the news. Also lower was Rally Software (RALY), which fell more than 8% after the cloud software company gave a first quarter and fiscal 2015 outlook that came in below expectations. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 102.79, or 0.63%, to 16,433.84, the Nasdaq was down 0.48, or 0.01%, to 4,318.80, and the S&P 500 was up 9.26, or 0.49%, to 1,881.27.
