Stocks on Wall Street were higher, recovering just a bit of what was lost in the last two sessions. The Nasdaq, which had been a laggard in recent trade, posted the session's largest gains. Alcoa (AA), the traditional marker for the beginning of corporate earnings season, is set to report after the market close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The NFIB's 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. 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: New York-listed Nokia (NOK) shares gained 36c, or 4.99%, to $7.58 after a deal to sell substantially all of its Devices & Services business to Microsoft (MSFT) received regulatory approval in China... A number of tech's high-fliers that have been notably weak in the last month of trade, including Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB), Netflix (NFLX) and LinkedIn (LNKD), advanced more than 2% as the Nasdaq lead the market's gains after serving as a laggard in recent sessions. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Chinese travel website operators Ctrip.com (CTRP), up $5.23, or 10.41%, to $55.48, and Qunar (QUNR), up $3.94, or 14.65%, to $30.84, after a report from Bloomberg said the companies are in talks on a deal that could result in a partnership or potentially a full merger. Among the noteworthy losers was Gigamon (GIMO), which lost $8.89, or 33.93%, to $17.31 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 was Rovi (ROVI), which fell $2.76, or 11.87%, to $20.50 after an appeals court upheld a ruling that said Amazon did not infringe the company's patents related to television program guides. INDEXES: The Dow was up 10.27, or 0.06%, to 16,256.14, the Nasdaq was up 33.23, or 0.81%, to 4,112.99, and the S&P 500 was up 6.92, or 0.38%, to 1,851.96.

12:24 EDTNFLXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were modestly higher at midday. The averages opened mixed, but very close to the flat line, and have continued to drift slowly higher from that point. There is little to stand in the way of the marketís drift, as the economic calendar is quiet, the earnings season is winding down, and the most closely watched geopolitical situations are currently status quo. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., little of note was on the economic calendar. The Federal Reserve's newly introduced Labor Market Conditions Index was flat at 4 in October. The Fed started updating estimates of the LMCI every month beginning with last month. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Netflix (NFLX) advanced about 1% after xxx President Barack Obama publicly urged the Federal Communications Commission to implement the "strongest possible rules" to protect net neutrality. In response, Verizon (VZ) said it supports the open Internet and continues to believe that the "light-touch regulatory approach in place for the past two decades has been central to the Internetís success," adding that it believes the reclassification Obama called for would "apply 1930s-era utility regulation to the Internet" and be a "radical reversal of course" that would threaten great harm to an open Internet, competition and innovation." A number of Internet Service Providers, including Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), Charter (CHTR) and Cablevision (CVC), moved lower after Obama weighed in on the hot-button issue. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Achillion Pharmaceuticals (ACHN), which rose 22% after the company presented data from the ongoing Phase 2 study of its Hepatitis C virus treatment at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, or AASLD. Also higher was Dean Foods (DF), which rose more than 13% after the dairy products distributorís third quarter results, as well as its fourth quarter and full year profit outlook, surpassed analystsí consensus estimates. Among the noteworthy losers was Rayonier (RYN), which dropped 13% after management determined that there was a material weakness in the company's internal controls, restated certain previously made financial statements, and cut its dividend reflecting expectations of reduced cash available for distribution due to lower expected annual harvest levels. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 18.55, or 0.11%, to 17,592.48, the Nasdaq was up 10.77, or 0.23%, to 4,643.30, and the S&P 500 was up 4.01, or 0.2%, to 2,035.93.
