12:18 EDTMYL, NDZ, MNTA, PRAN, MU, TEVA, TOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday in the last trading day of the first quarter of the year. The disappointing Chicago purchasing managers' report was offset by dovish comments from Fed Chief Yellen, who said the the central bank’s "extraordinary" aid will last for "some time.” ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago PMI business barometer index came in at 55.9, versus the consensus forecast for a 59.0 reading. In Europe, the annual inflation rate across the 18-country eurozone fell for the third consecutive month, slipping to 0.5% in March, compared to analysts' consensus forecast for a milder drop to 0.6%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of AT&T (T) advanced early in the session after the company's board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to 300M shares, or about 6% of its common shares outstanding. The company also noted it has 125M shares left under its buyback authorization that was issued in March of last year, but the stock had given up much of its early advance to be up fractionally near noon. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Canada's Nordion (NDZ), which jumped 11% after the company agreed to be acquired by Sterigenics for $11.75 per share in cash shortly after Canada's government lifted its 25% limit on foreign investment in the company. Also higher following analyst commentary was Micron (MU), which rose nearly 8% amid notes in its defense from Stifel and Pacific Crest, as well as broad-based strength in technology stocks that have recently pulled back. Among the noteworthy losers were Momenta Pharmaceuticals (MNTA), which dropped 15%, and Mylan (MYL), which slipped over 1%, after the Supreme Court agreed to hear an appeal by Teva (TEVA) of a court ruling that would enable generic versions of its multiple sclerosis drug, Copaxone, to be sold in May. Also lower were shares of Prana Biotechnology (PRAN), which plunged over 70% after its clinical study of a drug being tested as a treatment of Alzheimer's Disease did not hit its primary endpoint. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 118.43, or 0.73%, to 16,441.49, the Nasdaq was up 52.48, or 1.26%, to 4,208.23, and the S&P 500 was up 14.56, or 0.78%, to 1,872.18.
