12:18 EDTHCPOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks have moved in a fairly wide range, with the Dow beginning the session with triple digit losses, moving briefly into positive territory, and now hovering near the flat line. Oil prices continue to dictate the equity market's direction, as each move of oil prices toward the plus side is followed by a subsequently positive move for stocks. With oil back below $30 per barrel, the major averages have found it hard to maintain any upward momentum. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., wholesale sales dipped 0.3% in December, while inventories fell 0.1%. The Labor Department's Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey showed job openings rose 261,000 in December to about 5.61M. In Asia, most major markets remain closed for Chinese New Year, but one of the exceptions, Japan, saw its main indexes plunge, as the Nikkei dropped 5.4% and the Topix fell 5.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of 21st Century Fox (FOXA) declined 3% after the company reported lower than expected second quarter revenue, while peer Viacom (VIAB) tumbled 15% following its own revenue miss. The results of the two media conglomerates weighed on the largest name in the space, Disney (DIS), which fell 1% near noon ahead of its own earnings report, which is due after the closing bell today. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Salesforce (CRM), which rose 5% after it was upgraded to Hold from Underperform at Jefferies. Also higher was Boston Scientific (BSX), which gained 4% after it announced that Medicare will cover its Watchman LAAC device. In addition, Belden (BDC) and Goodyear Tire (GT) were up 20% and 5%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. Among the noteworthy losers was ITC Holdings (ITC), which fell 2% after it agreed to be acquired by Fortis in a cash and stock deal valued at $11.3B. Also lower were Plains All American (PAA), Bristow Group (BRS) and HCP (HCP), which were down 14%, 24%, and 15%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 75.85, or 0.47%, to 15,951.20, the Nasdaq was down 16.69, or 0.39%, to 4,267.06, and the S&P 500 was down 8.08, or 0.44%, to 1,845.36.
