12:28 EDTSWHCOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory but have paired their losses near midday. There was little reaction to the day’s economic data, which were highlighted by private payrolls growth that was a bit lower than expected and a crude oil inventory build-up that was much greater than expected. Investors are now looking forward to this afternoon, when the Federal Reserve will release its Beige Book report at 2:00 pm EST. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., ADP reported private payrolls increased 212K in February, versus the consensus forecast for the addition of 219K jobs. Markit's services PMI rose to 57.1 in the final February reading, which was up from the 57.0 flash print, where it was expected to remain. ISM's services index edged up 0.2 points to 56.9 in February, which was above the consensus 56.5 forecast. In Asia, the biggest news came from India, whose central bank unexpectedly lowered its policy rate for the second time this year. The bank lowered its policy repo rate by 25 basis points to 7.5%, citing "low capacity utilization and still-weak indicators of production" for its pre-emptive policy action. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of a number of hospital operators' stocks jumped after U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy expressed skepticism about the arguments from challengers' of a key component of the Affordable Care Act. At midday, after the high court ceased hearing arguments for the day, HCA Holdings (HCA) was up over 5.5%, Community Health (CYH) was up 5%, and Tenet Healthcare (THC) was up 4%... Exxon Mobil (XOM) stated at its analyst meeting that the company's capital expenditures came in $1.3B below plan at $38.5B last year and that it plans to cut that to $34B in 2015 based on expectations for reduced Upstream spending and "attractive" Downstream and Chemical investments. For 2016 to 2017, Exxon said it expects capital expenditures to average less than $34B per year. Despite the lower spending, Exxon Mobil sees its total Upstream production to be up 2% in 2015 and grow 3% per year in 2016 and 2017. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were online-only home goods retailer Wayfair (W), which rose 15% and gunmaker Smith & Wesson (SWHC), which advanced over 10%. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were Bazaarvoice (BV), which fell 28%, and Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), which dropped 13%. Also lower were shares of Bob Evans Farms (BOBE), which sunk 22% after its third quarter results fell below analysts' consensus estimates, the company lowered its fiscal year 2015 profit outlook and announced it would not pursue a sale or spin-off of its BEF Foods segment. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 87.26, or 0.48%, to 18,116.11, the Nasdaq was down 9.46, or 0.19%, to 4,970.44, and the S&P 500 was down 8.51, or 0.4%, to 2,099.27.
