12:35 EDTODP, OMX, CAT, NTSP, TSS, HNR, MMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday following the release of several domestic economic reports and ahead of the minutes from the last FOMC meeting. The averages drifted quietly with little direction in the early part of the session, but weakened following rumors that a sizable commodity hedge fund was in trouble and was forced to liquidate. Details of that rumored collapse were scarce, though crude prices were down over 2% in midday trading... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Commerce Department figures showed total housing starts dropped 8.5% to a 890K rate in January, which was less than forecast. However, building permits were up 1.8% in the month, versus expectations for an increase of 1.2%. Producer prices in January rose 0.2%, versus expectations for an increase of 0.3%. The core producer price inflation figure, which excludes volatile food and energy components, rose 0.2%, which was in line with expectations. Also, the Federal Reserve is scheduled to release the minutes from its Jan. 29-30 meeting at 2pm ET... COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Office Depot (ODP) and OfficeMax (OMX) both declined after confirming their previously rumored plan to merge, but the announcement took a strange turn. Office Depot inadvertently announced the deal early as part of its earnings report, though both companies confirmed the merger in press releases later in the morning. Following the confirmation of the all-stock deal, Office Depot fell 14%, while OfficeMax slid nearly 4%... Dow member Caterpillar (CAT) declined almost 2% after disclosing that global retail machine sales dropped 4% in the three months through January, continuing a trend of declining sales that began in the prior month... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was NetSpend (NTSP), which rose over 28% to $15.79 after agreeing to be acquired by Total Systems (TSS) for $16 per share. Shares of buyer Total Systems slipped more than 6%. Also lower were shares Harvest Natural Resources (HNR), down over 38% after its agreement to sell interests in Venezuela was terminated, and Millennial Media (MM), which fell 36% after its quarterly report and a downgrade of the stock at Morgan Stanley... INDICES: Near midday, the Dow was down 18.97, or 0.14%, to 14,016.70; the Nasdaq was down 17.42, or 0.54%, to 3,196.17; and the S&P 500 was down 6.17, or 0.40%, to 1,524.77.
