16:43 EDTFTNT, QCOM, STZ, CLSN, SGMS, FB, SWKS, WMS, BUD, FIOOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower after the averages moved in a narrow range for much of the session on fairly light volume ahead of tomorrow's non-farm payroll report... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., weekly unemployment applications jumped 38K to a seasonally adjusted 368K, versus expectations for a more modest rise to 350K. The Challenger job cuts report showed planned layoffs were down 24.4% from the same period a year ago. The Commerce Department said consumer spending rose 0.2% in December, which was slightly slower than the 0.4% increase in November, though income jumped 2.6% in December for the biggest monthly gain since the end of 2004. The Chicago Purchasing Manager’s Index came in at 55.6, beating an expected reading of 50.5... COMPANY NEWS: The Department of Justice announced it was suing to prevent Anheuser-Busch InBev's (BUD) planned $20.1B deal to buy control of Grupo Modelo (GPMCF). Shares of AB InBev fell sharply after the news broke, settling down $5.54, or 5.88%, at $88.60. Constellation Brands (STZ), whose deal to acquire the remaining 50% in the Crown Import joint venture it runs with Grupo Modelo is in jeopardy from the DoJ action, lost $6.81, or 17.39%, to $32.36 following the news. However, late in the day, Bloomberg cited sources in reporting that AB InBev's talks about the merger are continuing with U.S. regulators... Facebook (FB) opened sharply lower following its quarterly report, but recovered through the day, eventually closing down only 26c, or 0.83%, at $30.98. Despite earnings and revenue that beat consensus, shares were downgraded by at least five firms as the company said it plans to invest heavily in its business in 2013... Qualcomm (QCOM) saw price targets on its shares raised around the Street following the company's Q1 results and increased guidance and closed up $2.49, or 3.92%, at $66.02... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was WMS Industries (WMS), up $8.38, or 51.19%, to $24.75 after agreeing to be acquired by Scientific Games (SGMS) for $26.00 per share in cash. Shares of Scientific Games opened sharply higher, but fell through the session to close down 4c, or 0.45%, at $8.89. Also higher following earnings reports that beat Street estimates were Fortinet (FTNT), up $4.24, or 21.91%, to $23.59 and Skyworks (SWKS), up $2.38, or 11.04%, to $23.94. Among the noteworthy losers was Celsion (CLSN), down $6.51, or 81.17%, to $1.51 after its Phase III HEAT study of ThermoDox did not meet its primary endpoint. Also lower was Fusion-io (FIO), down $2.61, or 12.99%, to $17.48, after its Q3 revenue view came in well below Street estimates and the stock was downgraded and price targets were cut by at least three firms... INDICES: The Dow was down 49.84, or 0.36%, to 13,860.58; the Nasdaq was down 0.18, or 0.01%, to 3,142.13; and the S&P 500 was down 3.85, or 0.26%, to 1,498.11.

Qualcomm provided the following statement: "We were informed that the European Commission has taken the procedural step of 'initiating proceedings' against Qualcomm with regard to the two ongoing investigations into Qualcomm's sale of chipsets for mobile devices. This step allows investigators to gather additional facts, but it represents neither an expression by the Commission on the merits of the case nor an accusation against the company. While we were disappointed to hear this, we have been cooperating and will continue to cooperate with the Commission, and we continue to believe that any concerns are without merit."
