16:28 EDTSVU, WLL, BLOX, KR, LQDT, BKS, USNAOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street withstood some fiscal cliff related volatility to finish in positive territory. Some positive economic data, including better than expected pending home sales and an upward revision to Q3 GDP growth, contributed to the move higher but investors remained on edge and reacted with each new headline coming out of Washington... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims dropped to 393,000, versus expectations for claims to fall to 390,0000. The Commerce Department revised its estimate for the gain in Q3 GDP to 2.7% from the previously reported 2% gain. Analysts expected growth to be revised to a 2.8% rate. However, within the report, Q3 consumer spending was lowered to a 1.4% growth rate from the 2% gain previously reported. Pending home sales rose 5.2% in October from the prior month, versus expectations for an increase of 1%... COMPANY NEWS: A Bloomberg report said that PE-firm Cerberus Capital Management's planned buyout of SuperValu (SVU) had stalled on financing concerns. Shares of SuperValu dropped sharply following the news, eventually closing down 52c, or 18.57%, at $2.28... A report from the Wall Street Journal said that Whiting Petroleum (WLL) had been exploring a sale but would no longer pursue that alternative. After a midday circuit-breaker halt, shares of Whiting settled down $1.34, or 3.17%, to $40.94... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Infoblox (BLOX), up $4.12, or 29.53%, to $18.07 after its earnings beat consensus estimates. Also higher were shares of Kroger (KR), up $1.19, or 4.75%, to $26.25 after the company reported earnings and provided guidance that beat Street forecasts. Among noteworthy losers were Liquidity Services (LQDT), down $5.90, or 13.49%, to $37.83, and Barnes & Noble (BKS), down $1.79, or 11.15%, to $14.26, after their earnings reports. Also lower were shares of Usana Health Sciences (USNA), down $2.44, or 5.60%, to $41.17 after a report from short-selling blog Citron Research which said the company is the subject of criminal probes in China... INDICES: The Dow was up 36.71, or 0.28%, to 13,021.82; the Nasdaq was up 20.25, or 0.68%, to 3,012.03; and the S&P 500 was up 6.02, or 0.43%, to 1,415.95.

Reports Q2 revenue $188.3M, consensus $198.3M. The company said, "Net sales, on a comparative basis, were negatively impacted by: (i) $7.0 million of incremental sales in the second quarter of 2013 that occurred ahead of policy changes, which included restricting Associate purchases to their country of residence; (ii) $3.3 million from unfavorable changes in currency exchange rates, and (iii) price discounts that the Company implemented in 2013. The number of active Associates for the second quarter increased 11.4% year-over-year, and 6.8% sequentially, largely as a result of the initiatives implemented by the Company in 2013."

15:00 EDTLQDTIronPlanet awarded contract for DoD rolling stock surplus
IronPlanet announced that it was awarded the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency contract to manage and sell rolling stock surplus assets of the U.S. Department of Defense. The DLA issued the final contract award to IronPlanet on July 25, pursuant to a competitive bid process that was held on April 1. Bids for the Surplus Contract were based on a percentage of the sales price of the items that bidders will share with the DLA. IronPlanet estimates $50M-$70M of rolling stock annually, and its bid was equal to 75.29% revenue share to the DLA. The Surplus Contract has a base term of two years with four one-year renewal options. Following the bid process, Liquidity Services (LQDT) filed a bid protest with the Government Accountability Office. This protest and supplemental protests filed were denied by the GAO on July 23. Rolling stock includes surplus trucks, trailers, generators, wheel loaders, cranes, crawler tractors, and other equipment. While Surplus Contract volume will begin to flow to IronPlanet in the third quarter of 2014, the contract is scheduled to fully commence late 2014 into 2015. “We are very pleased and excited to be officially awarded this contract, and to partner with the Defense Logistics Agency. We have already begun moving forward leveraging our existing infrastructure and resources to build the dedicated capabilities necessary to maximize the returns for the U.S. Department of Defense, and ultimately the U.S. taxpayer, in selling their surplus rolling stock assets,” said Greg Owens, CEO, IronPlanet.
