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%...

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.
