12:38 EDTTGT, TIF, PETM, AEO, PHH, BAH, OGZPYOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, with the Dow's triple digit gain recapturing most of what had been lost by the blue chip index yesterday. Stock futures improved during pre-market trading, leading to a positive open for the broader market, but the averages have moved in a narrow range since the opening half hour of trading. Investors now await the release of the minutes from the Fed's last rate-setting meeting to see if there was any change in the language surrounding it’s monetary policy. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Federal Reserve will release the minutes from its April FOMC meeting at 2 pm ET. In Asia, the Bank of Japan left its policies unchanged, as was widely expected, but its outlook on capital spending was upgraded.

The company said that while it was pleased with its "continued recovery" from its well-publicized data breach, that its needs to "move more quickly" and is investing additional resources to drive U.S. traffic and sales, resulting in its lowered earnings expectations. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was luxury retailer Tiffany (TIF), which climbed 8.5% after the company reported significantly stronger than expected results and raised its full-year profit guidance. Also higher was PHH Corp. (PHH), which rose more than 16% after Reuters said a Canadian equipment finance company is in exclusive talks to buy PHH's fleet leasing business for about $1.35B in cash. Among the noteworthy losers was pet products and services supplier PetSmart (PETM), whose shares sunk over 7.5% after the company reported mixed first quarter results and issued a weaker than expected profit outlook.
