12:21 EDTTTWO, NOK, NAV, IIVI, YPFOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday in spite of some disappointing domestic economic data, with the market's expectations for more quantitative easing possibly making bad news seem like good news. The averages opened quietly but almost immediately began to move higher. Whenever options are set to expire it can lead to higher volatility and heavier volume. With today being “quadruple witching,” when options, stock index options, single stock futures and stock index futures are all due to expire, the moves can be more extreme. Although the move today was orderly it came on heavier than normal volume, which is a sure sign that options were involved. The market has ignored the poor economic data points, including the industrial production and Empire manufacturing reports, and has added to its gains from earlier in the week... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Empire state manufacturing report for June reported a drop in the general business conditions index to 2.29, versus expectations of a reading of 13.0. Industrial production fell 0.1% in May, versus expectations that it would remain flat, while manufacturing production declined 0.4%, versus forecasts it would fall 0.3% month-over-month. The University of Michigan consumer confidence reading was 74.1, versus expectations of 77.5. Internationally, this weekend will see the highly anticipated elections in Greece, as well as the second round of France's legislature elections and voting in Egypt that will influence U.S. policy in the Middle East... COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Nokia (NOK) rebounded a bit from yesterday's steep sell-off, gaining back about 6%. The troubled phone maker's shares were upgraded at both Citigroup and Oppenheimer, though the stock was also downgraded at Credit Suisse... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were YPF SA (YPF), up 20%, after Carlos Slim reported an 8.4% stake in the company, and Navistar (NAV), up almost 8%, after hedge fund MHR Fund Management disclosed a 13.6% stake. Noteworthy losers included II-VI (IIVI), down 11%, after giving a near-term and longer-term earnings view below consensus estimates, and Take-Two (TTWO), down more than 3%, as one of a number of video game makers falling after research firm NPD reported that U.S. video game sales plunged a greater than expected 28% in May... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 62.32, or 0.49%, to 12,714.23; the Nasdaq was up 18.71, or 0.66%, to 2,855.04; and the S&P 500 was up 7.37, or 0.55%, to 1,336.47.

Nokia (NOK) announced that it has received approval from the European Commission for its pending acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent (ALU).

In addition, the parties confirmed today they have received further antitrust clearances from Albania, Canada, Colombia and Russia. Both companies will continue to cooperate with the remaining authorities to close their reviews as quickly as possible. The transaction remains subject to approval by Nokia shareholders, Nokia holding over 50.00% of the share capital of Alcatel-Lucent on a fully diluted basis upon completion of the public exchange offer, receipt of other regulatory approvals and other customary conditions. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2016.
