10:49 EDTAEOAbercrombie & Fitch soars after reporting upbeat Q3 earnings
Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) shares jumped in morning trading after the company reported better than expected quarterly earnings. WHAT'S NEW: Before the market open, Abercrombie & Fitch reported third quarter adjusted earnings per share of 48c on revenue of $878.6M. The consensus was for EPS of 22c on revenue of $864.65M. The company said that the adjusted EPS figure included year-over-year adverse effects from changes in foreign currency exchange rates amounting to roughly 13c. Commenting on the earnings, executive chairman Arthur Martinez said that the company's results "exceeded" expectations and "provide the strongest validation yet" that the retailer's initiatives are working. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On its Q3 earnings conference call, Abercrombie said that it is eyeing expansion outside of the U.S., aiming to roll out multiple new capabilities in the U.K. The company added that it saw growth in China in the past quarter and plans to add mobile enhancements in China in 2016. STREET RESEARCH: A day before Abercrombie's Q3 earnings release, Susquehanna analyst Thomas Filandro said that the retailer was "well positioned" for the holiday season, though weather and international unrest may lead to a higher degree of near-term uncertainty. Filandro said that his firm sees improved holiday performance as Abercrombie shifts focus on an improved in-store experience, growing U.S. outlets, closing underperforming stores, and evolving its merchandise assortment. The analyst reiterated a Positive rating and a $26 price target on the company's stock. After the retailer reported earnings, KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma maintained an Overweight rating on Abercrombie's shares, saying that the company's better than expected quarter was "particularly impressive" in light of the recent weakness in the retail sector. Yruma said that the company's new brand initiatives are taking hold and that greater expense control and reduced promotional activity are improving the well-being of the business. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Abercrombie & Fitch rallied over 18% to $23.00. OTHERS TO WATCH: American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) was up just under 3%, Aeropostale (ARO) gained 0.75%, Tilly's (TLYS) rallied 3.4%, Urban Outfitters (URBN) jumped more than 4%, Buckle (BKE) was up just under 1%, and Express (EXPR) fell fractionally in morning trading.

12:33 EDTSPLSOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory and have moved higher throughout the morning. All eyes continue to be fixed on Paris and successful police action in a raid of the dwellings of suspects from the bombing over the weekend may have added to today's positive sentiment. There was little help from the day's economic data, however, as the housing starts report for October came in with the lowest reading in seven months and the energy inventories data showed another buildup in crude. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts fell 11.0% to a 1.06M pace in October, weaker than the expected rate of 1.16M. Building permits, however, rose 4.1% to a 1.15M rate, versus an expected rise of 3.8%. The day's big economic event may be yet to come, as investors await the minutes from the Fed's last FOMC meeting, which are scheduled for release at 2:00 pm ET. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Target (TGT) fell more than 5% after the retailer reported in-line quarterly sales and profits and narrowed the range of its fiscal year earnings view. Target, which guided for same-store sales in its holiday quarter to be up 1%-2%, added that it sees "indications of heavy inventory levels" at some competitors into the holiday season... Shares of railroad operator Norfolk Southern (NSC) spiked in the after-hours trading after rival Canadian Pacific (CP) announced that it had sent an offer letter proposing a business combination, but failed to outline the details of its proposal. Norfolk Southern then confirmed Canadian Pacific to acquire the company for $46.72 in cash and a fixed exchange ratio of 0.348 Canadian Pacific shares per Norfolk share, calling the indication of interest "unsolicited, low-premium, non-binding and highly conditional." CNBC's David Faber, citing sources, subsequently reported that Norfolk Southern has no interest in pursuing a merger, but Norfolk shares remain up more than 6% early this afternoon, while Canadian Pacific is up nearly 6% as well... Shares of Apple (AAPL) climbed about 3% after Goldman Sachs added the stock to its Conviction Buy List, predicting that investors should begin to focus on the company's monetization and recurring revenue opportunities over the next year, which would be a boon to its valuation. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Aramark (ARMK), which rallied 8% after it reported upbeat quarterly earnings and guided for fiscal 2016. Also higher was Fairchild Semicondcutor (FCS), which gained 8.5% after it agreed to be acquired for approximately $2.4B by ON Semiconductor (ON), which fell 8% following the deal announcement. Another noteworthy losers was Qualcomm (QCOM), which fell nearly 10% after it said that allegations from Korea's FTC that the company did not properly negotiate "aspects" of its licenses are "not supported by the facts." Also lower was Staples (SPLS), which was down 4% after it reported Q3 earnings and provided an earnings outlook for Q4. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 132.98, or 0.76%, to 17,622.48, the Nasdaq was up 43.00, or 0.86%, to 5,029.01, and the S&P 500 was up 15.62, or 0.76%, to 2,066.06.
09:22 EDTSPLSOn The Fly: Pre-market Movers
UP AFTER EARNINGS: Vipshop (VIPS), up 8%. ALSO HIGHER: Anavex Life Sciences (AVXL), up 27.5% after announcing preparation of regulatory filings based on guidance from FDA...

Actinium Pharmaceuticals (ATNM), up 14.9% after submitting an Investigational New Drug application with the FDA for Iomab-B...
