12:34 EDTLVLT, C, FNSR, GRUB, PCLN, TWTC, YELP, OPEN, EXPR, INTCOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session slightly higher but quickly gave up their opening gains. An early report on producer prices unexpectedly showed slight deflation, not price inflation as was expected, which was followed by a worse than expected reading on consumer confidence. The averages dropped into negative territory, but by mid-morning the market had reversed and moved back onto positive ground, where the averages remained near the lunch hour. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Labor Department's producer price index for final demand slipped 0.2% in May, versus expectations for it to have risen 0.1% in the month. The first release of the University of Michigan consumer confidence index for June dropped to 81.2 from the final May reading of 81.9. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of restaurant review and reservation company OpenTable (OPEN) were the day's big winner after travel site operator Priceline Group (PCLN) agreed to buy the company for $2.6B, or $103 per share. OpenTable advanced 47% to trade at $103.50 near noon, while shares of a number of companies that provide local services and deals via the Internet and mobile devices jumped as well, including Yelp (YELP), which was up 13%, and GrubHub (GRUB), which rose 8.5%... Shares of chip making giant Intel (INTC) rose more than 7% after its raised its guidance for the second quarter, citing strong demand for business PCs, and said that it now expects some revenue growth this fiscal year, versus its previous guidance for "mostly flat" revenue growth. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Express (EXPR), which jumped 20% after confirming that Sycamore Partners, which owns approximately 9.9% of its shares, has expressed interested in acquiring the company. Also higher was TW Telecom (TWTC), which rose nearly 12% after a financial news service BrightWire said the company and Level 3 (LVLT) are in merger talks. Among the noteworthy losers was telecommunication equipment maker Finisar (FNSR), which sunk 23% after the company’s profit and gross margin outlook trailed analysts’ consensus estimates and its stock was downgraded at Craig-Hallum. Also lower was Citigroup (C), which fell 1.5% after Bloomberg reported that the U.S. is seeking over $10B in its mortgage probe related to the bank. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 34.84, or 0.21%, to 16,769.03, the Nasdaq was up 12.03, or 0.28%, to 4,309.66, and the S&P 500 was up 5.06, or 0.26%, to 1,935.17.
