12:21 EDTNAV, IIVI, YPF, TTWO, NOKOn 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.

16:26 EDTNAVOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory following another tumble in the price of oil and Russian central bank intervention on the ruble. The continued decline in crude and the sudden rate hike in Russia led to an early sell-off, though the market soon pared its losses and the Dow eventually built a 200 point gain before noon. The swing of 300 points for the Dow was indicative of the day’s volatility. The market moved across the flat line again and in the end the sellers regained control and pushed the market to another loss. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts fell 1.6% to a 1.028M rate in November, which was worse than the expected 3.1% increase. Building permits dropped 5.2% to a 1.035M rate in the month, which was also worse than the consensus forecast for a 2.5% drop. Markit's flash PMI for the U.S. dropped to 53.7 in December from 54.8 in November, which is an 11 month low and worse than the 55.2 reading that was forecast. In China, HSBC and Markit's preliminary manufacturing PMI fell to 49.5 in December from a final 50.0 reading in November. In Europe, Markit's composite PMI for the euro zone rose to 51.7, which was up from November's final reading of 51.1 and just above analyst forecasts for a reading of 51.5. Additionally, Russia's central bank raised its key interest rate to 17% from 10.5% in an effort to limit substantially increased ruble depreciation risks and inflation risks. COMPANY NEWS: Spain's Repsol (REPYY) announced plans to buy Talisman Energy (TLM) for $8 per share in cash, which was at the high end of the range reported recently by Financial Times. Talisman shares trading in New York surged $2.46, or 48.05%, to $7.58 following the deal announcement, while Repsol slipped 18c, or 0.93%, to $19.26. MAJOR MOVERS: The top nine gainers on the S&P 500 were all oil and gas exploration or services companies. After those came CVS Health (CVS), which gained $2.44, or 2.72%, to $92.31 after the company announced in conjunction with its analyst day meeting that it added $10B to its share repurchase plan, boosted its dividend 27%, affirmed its outlook for this fiscal year and pointed to growing earnings in its next fiscal year. Among the noteworthy losers was heavy truck maker Navistar (NAV), which fell $5.95, or 16.98%, to $29.10 after reporting losses for its just completed quarter. Also lower were shares of Russian companies listed in the U.S., including QIWI (QIWI), which dropped $2.81, or 13.06%, to $18.70 and Mobile TeleSystems (MBT), which slid 75c, or 10.84%, to $6.17. INDEXES: The Dow fell 111.97, or 0.65%, to 17,068.87, the Nasdaq dropped 57.32, or 1.24%, to 4,547.83, and the S&P 500 declined 16.89, or 0.85%, to 1,972.74.
