12:23 EDTCTB, AAPL, PCS, DLTR, FAST, SFTBF, CLWR, SWY, SSNLF, DTEGY, SOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday as jobless claims fell to their lowest weekly level in years, though the data appeared to be impacted by a reporting irregularity. Stocks began the session moderately higher but never really gained upside momentum. The catalyst for the early move, the unexpected decrease in the weekly jobless claims data, may have been largely impacted by one state failing to file certain data on time, taking the luster off the early positive surprise. The averages began to drift off their highs and were struggling to stay in positive territory as the lunch hour approached... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., weekly initial jobless claims were 339,000, versus the expected 370,000. However, a Labor Department economist reportedly said one large state didn't report additional quarterly figures as expected, which influenced the figure. The trade balance report showed a deficit of $44.2B, versus the expected deficit of $44.0B. A separate report showed import prices increased 1.1% in September, versus the expected increase of 0.7%. In Europe, Spainís credit rating was downgraded by S&P by two notches late Wednesday... COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Sprint (S) climbed following reports, which the company then confirmed, that it is in talks with Japanese cellphone company Softbank (SFTBF) regarding a potential "substantial investment." CNBC said Softbank may be attracted to Sprint, which may be working to buy Clearwire (CLWR), because of spectrum holdings. The talks come a bit over a week after Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) owned T-Mobile and MetroPCS (PCS) agreed to combine their U.S. cellphone businesses. In midday trading, shares in Clearwire were up 32% to $1.72 and Sprint was up 15% to $5.80, while PCS slid over 3% to $11.63... An appeals court reversed an injunction granted to Apple (AAPL) against Samsung's (SSNLF) Galaxy Nexus smartphone, meaning sales of the phone can begin again while the patent fight between the companies continues... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Fastenal (FAST), up over 8% after the company reported in-line results for its third quarter and raised its dividend, and Cooper Tire (CTB), up nearly 8% following reports that Indian tire maker Apollo Tyres is in the process of acquiring Cooper. Among the noteworthy losers were Safeway (SWY), down 3% after its earnings beat expectations but its revenues missed consensus forecasts, and Dollar Tree (DLTR), down more than 7% after saying its sees its Q3 sales coming in at the low end of its prior forecast... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 35.93, or 0.27%, to 13,380.90; the Nasdaq was up 11.95, or 0.39%, to 3,063.73; and the S&P 500 was up 6.81, or 0.48%, to 1,439.37.
