12:21 EDTRHT, HLF, MU, RIMM, NOK, PNK, ASCA, NKEOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower at midday after Republicans failed to back Speaker Boehner's "Plan B" fiscal cliff bill, meaning lawmakers will go home for the Christmas holiday with the cliff still looming. Today's volume is heavy, as is typical for options expiration day, but investors seem to care less about the latest economic reports and remain focused on the impact the fiscal cliff may have on the economy next year... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Reports showed U.S. personal income rose 0.6% in November, versus the expected increase of 0.3%. Consumer spending climbed 0.4% in the month, which matched expectations. Durable goods orders rose 0.7% in November, versus the expected increase of 0.3%. Excluding transportation items, orders jumped 1.6%, versus the expected decline of 0.2%. The final University of Michigan Consumer Confidence reading for December was revised down to 72.9 from a prior 74.5 reading. Analysts called for it to rise slightly to 75.0... COMPANY NEWS: Research in Motion (RIMM) jumped higher in after-market trading immediately after its report that Q3 revenue beat consensus estimates and its quarterly losses were not as steep as feared. However, shares reversed and the weakness extended into today's trading session after the company said on its conference call that it plans to introduce a lower enterprise service tier, which multiple Wall Street analysts said may cut into one of its highest margin revenue streams. The company also agreed to a patent deal with Nokia (NOK), under which it will make a one-off payment and pay ongoing fees to it smartphone rival. Shares of Research in Motion plunged over 18% in afternoon trade, while Nokia slid nearly 5%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Pinnacle Entertainment (PNK) and Ameristar Casinos (ASCA), which both rose after Pinnacle agreed to purchase its fellow casino operator for $26.50 per share, or $2.8B. Shares of the buyer rose over 18%, while Ameristar jumped nearly 20%. Also higher were shares of Nike (NKE), which rose almost 5%, and Red Hat (RHT), up nearly 4%, after their earnings reports. Among the noteworthy losers were Herbalife (HLF), down more than 14% as the company's public fight with Bill Ackman intensifies, and Micron (MU), down 8% following its worse than expected quarterly results... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 175.99, or 1.32%, to 13,135.73; the Nasdaq was down 45.81, or 1.50%, to 3,004.58; and the S&P 500 was down 19.77, or 1.37%, to 1,423.92.

14:04 EDTHLFAckman will continue Herbalife short position as needed, Bloomberg reports
Bill Ackman's hedge-fund Pershing Square said most of the Herbalife contracts it holds will expire next year and that it will extend their terms by "paying additional premiums if it is necessary to do so," according to Bloomberg, citing Ackman's quarterly letter to investors. In the letter, Ackman said that the cost of holding a short position in options of Herbalife has dropped "substantially" after the company canceled its dividend, the report noted. Reference Link

07:50 EDTMUMicron pullback creates buying opportunity, says Jefferies
Jefferies attributes the recent pullback in shares of Micron to Samsung's DRAM bit growth commentary and Micron's guidance for higher capital expenditures in FY15. Jefferies expects favorable DRAM supply/demand balance to continue through 2015 and thinks Micron will continue to see near-term pricing power. The firm recommends buying the stock at current levels and keeps a Buy rating on Micron with a $38 price target.
