12:48 EDTWEC, AVGO, MCRS, TEG, QCOM, ORCL, PLXT, PRKROn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday despite higher manufacturing index readings in the U.S. and China. Bucking the trend, a similar reading in Europe fell from its May level in the preliminary, or "flash," looks at the purchasing managers indexes. The market opened slightly lower and the major averages have moved in a narrow range throughout the morning, though they have spent most of their time slightly below the flat-line. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Markit's flash manufacturing purchasing managers index for June rose to 57.5 from 56.4 in May. Existing home sales beat estimates with a 4.9% May rise to a 4.89M rate. In China, HSBC's flash manufacturing PMI rose to 50.8 from 49.4 last month, hitting a seven-month high and moving into expansion territory for the first time this year. In Europe, Markit's euro zone flash composite purchasing managers' index fell to 52.8 in June from 53.5 in May. COMPANY NEWS: Oracle (ORCL) confirmed an agreement to acquire MICROS Systems (MCRS) for $68 per share in cash in a transaction valued at $4.6B net of MICROS' cash. Oracle's purchase was well telegraphed, after Bloomberg first reported on June 17 that a deal between the two was close and The Wall Street Journal confirmed the news over this weekend prior to the announcement from the companies. Shares of the register system and hospitality software maker rose a bit over 3% to trade just below the acquisition price near noon, while Oracle was up nearly 1% following the announcement. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the other notable gainers were two other companies that agreed to be acquired: Integrys (TEG) jumped 12.5% after Wisconsin Energy (WEC) struck a deal to buy the company in a transaction valued at $9.1B and PLX Technology (PLXT) rose 9% this morning after Avago Technologies (AVGO) said it will buy the circuit maker for $6.50 per share in an all-cash deal. Shares of both buyers slipped after the deals were announced, with Wisconsin Energy falling more than 2.5% and Avago dropping nearly 1%. Also lower was ParkerVision (PRKR), which crashed 53% after a Florida judge ruled in favor of its competitor, Qualcomm (QCOM), in a patent infringement trial between the companies. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 27.42, or 0.16%, to 16,919.66, the Nasdaq was down 0.96, or 0.02%, to 4,367.07, and the S&P 500 was down 1.27, or 0.06%, to 1,961.60.
