12:11 EDTAVID, TSCO, MCK, BLK, CSCO, CAH, HPQ, MKTX, FIO, ABC, SNEOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, despite a larger than expected increase in weekly jobless claims. The market opened relatively quietly following the release of a number of economic data points. The averages drifted for the opening minutes but then gained upside momentum. The move higher stalled after the averages had gains of roughly 0.5%, then stocks resumed their march higher, with all of the major averages up more that 1.0% near noon... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, 380K initial jobless claims were filed last week, versus the expected 355K. 3.25M continuing claims were reported, versus the expected 3.33M. Producer prices for the month of March were flat, versus the expected increase of 0.3%. The core PPI reading, however, rose 0.3%, versus the expected increase of 0.2%. The trade balance report showed a deficit of $46.0B, versus expectations for a deficit of $51.8B. Also, Fed Vice Chairwoman Janet Yellen made comments last night that the Fed might need to take additional action to bolster the economy if the unemployment rate does not come down. Internationally, Italy's short-term borrowing costs rose at auction, adding to fears that the calming effect of cheap ECB cash is fading... COMPANY NEWS: Sony (SNE) confirmed it plans to cut approximately 10,000 jobs in FY12 as it reorganizes to grow its electronics business to complement its stable entertainment and financial service businesses. Sony said it is positioning digital imaging, games and mobile as the three main focuses of its electronics division and it is making deep cuts in the costs and number of offerings in its television business. Investors were apparently not particularly moved by the announcements, as shares were up 2c, or 0.11%, to $18.77... Researchers Gartner and IDC both indicated that global shipments of personal computers rose in Q1 and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) remained the top PC maker by volume, pushing H-P's shares up 6.25% near noon... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were McKesson (MCK), up 4%, after the company beat out AmerisourceBergen (ABC) and Cardinal Health (CAH) to retain its Department of Veterans Affairs contract, Tractor Supply (TSCO), up almost 6%, after the company raised its 2012 guidance on expectations for a strong first quarter, Fusion-io (FIO), up more than 12%, following a note to investors from Piper Jaffray which said it believes the company is working on a new original equipment manufacturer deal with Cisco (CSCO). Noteworthy losers included Avid Technology (AVID), down over 14%, after the company said it expects to post a Q1 loss on revenues that will be down compared to last year, and MarketAxess (MKTX), down more than 4%, following a Wall Street Journal report that BlackRock (BLK) intends to launch its own trading platform that would let money managers trade bonds directly with each other... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 142.14, or 1.11%, to 12,947.53; the Nasdaq was up 34.78, or 1.15%, to 3,051.24; and the S&P 500 was up 14.37, or 1.05%, to 1,383.08.
