16:34 EDTRIMM, YUM, PNK, ASCA, RHT, NKE, HLF, GDI, SPWOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower on the day, after news last night out of Washington indicated that House Speaker Boehner's 'Plan B' failed to garner enough support for passage in the House, leaving the fiscal cliff unresolved as lawmakers head home for Christmas. Light volume in the markets saw the averages trade in a narrow range following the morning's selloff... 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: After yesterday's close, Research in Motion (RIMM) reported Q3 revenue that beat consensus estimates and quarterly losses that were not as steep as feared, though 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. Shares of RIM opened higher in yesterday's after hours session, but quickly reversed and the weakness continued into today's trading, eventually closing down $3.21, or 22.73%, to $10.91...Yum! Brands (YUM) saw shares down $2.61, or 3.93%, to $63.88, the stock's third straight day of losses following reports that Chinese authorities were testing chicken suspected to have contained an antiviral medicine... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Pinnacle Entertainment (PNK) and Ameristar Casinos (ASCA), which both rose after Pinnacle agreed to purchase Ameristar for $26.50 per share, or $2.8B. Shares of Pinnacle gained $2.85, or 21.35%, to $16.20 on the news, while Ameristar gained $4.43, or 20.07%, to $26.50.

Among the noteworthy losers were shares of Herbalife (HLF), down $6.43, or 19.08%, to $27.27 as the company's public fight with Bill Ackman intensifies. Also lower were shares of Gardner Denver (GDI), down $8.14, or 10.78%, to $67.40 after a Reuters report said the company's takeover talks with SPX Corp. (SPW) fell through... INDICES: The Dow was down 120.88, or 0.91%, to 13,190.84; the S&P was down 13.54, or 0.94%, to 1,430.25; the Nasdaq was down 29.38, or 0.96%, to 3,021.01.
