13:03 EDTNPSPOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, with the Nasdaq comfortably the leader among the major averages. The market opened relatively quietly as investors digested the bevy of research reports surrounding apple (AAPL) and the companies effected by its new products and services announced yesterday. The averages crossed into negative ground early in trading, made it back to positive territory just before the lunch hour, and now are all in the black. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., wholesale inventories rose 0.1% in July, which was below expectations for an increase of 0.5%. Wholesale sales rose 0.7%, which was above the 0.6% increase that was forecast. COMPANY NEWS: The strength in the Nasdaq was largely attributable to Apple, which rose about 2.5% the day after unveiling two new, larger iPhone 6 models, the Apple Watch and a new payment system, named Apple Pay... Dollar General (DG) "went hostile" in its pursuit of peer Family Dollar (FDO), commencing a tender offer to acquire all of the company's outstanding shares for $80.00 per share in cash. Family Dollar confirmed the unsolicited offer, noting that the terms are the same as those in the previously rejected proposal made by Dollar General on September 2. Family Dollar said its board will review and consider Dollar Generalís tender offer, but added that the board has not changed its recommendation in support of the company's merger with Dollar Tree (DLTR). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was NPS Pharmaceuticals (NPSP), which rose 21% after several analysts said FDA briefing documents for an advisory panel meeting on its Natpara drug were more favorable than expected. Also higher was clothing and accessories retailer Land's End (LE), which gained nearly 17% after the company's second quarter results beat the estimate of the only analyst that covers it. Among the noteworthy losers was eBay (EBAY), which fell for a second straight day after Apple announced its new mobile payment system, Apple Pay, that could come in direct competition with eBay's PayPal service. Shares of PayPal's parent were downgraded to Neutral this morning at Piper Jaffray and fell 3% near noon. Also lower following yesterday's presentation by Apple was partner GT Advanced (GTAT), which was downgraded at Goldman, Piper Jaffray and Dougherty and dropped more than 14% after it was revealed that sapphire will be used in the display cover of Apple Watch but not the iPhone 6. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 16.02, or 0.09%, to 17,029.89, the Nasdaq was up 21.10, or 0.46%, to 4,573.38, and the S&P 500 was up 2.62, or 0.13%, to 1,991.06.
