12:28 EDTTGT, TJX, DLTR, ZGNX, AH, CBB, FSLROn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday amid some more encouraging housing data and continued testimony from Fed Chairman Bernanke. The averages began the session in negative territory but almost immediately began to pare their losses. Within the first 30 minutes of trading the market crossed back into positive territory, then continued to advance after the pending home sales data surprised Wall Street with a better than expected move up compared to both the prior month and prior year... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., durable goods orders fell 5.2% in January, versus the expected decline of 4.8%. When transportation items are removed from the data, orders were up 1.9%, versus an expected increase of 0.2%. Pending home sales increased 4.5% in January from the prior month, versus an expected increase of 1.9%... COMPANY NEWS: As retailers continue their turn during the nearly finished earnings season, two prominent ones saw their shares move in opposite directions following their quarterly reports. Target (TGT) shares slid about 1% in spite of headline adjusted earnings that were better than expected, while TJX (TJX) rose about over 1% following its report and planned dividend increase... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Dollar Tree (DLTR), up over 12% following its earnings report, and Zogenix (ZGNX), which rose 35% after Street analysts said the FDA's decision to delay its decision on one of the company's drugs could be a positive. Among the noteworthy losers was Accretive Health (AH), which dropped 25% and was downgraded at Dougherty following its Q4 earnings postponement due to an accounting review. Also lower were shares of Cincinnati Bell (CBB), down 23%, and First Solar (FSLR), down over 14% following their earnings reports... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 115.27, or 0.83%, to 14,015.40; the Nasdaq was up 36.16, or 1.16%, to 3,165.81; and the S&P 500 was up 14.79, or 0.99%, to 1,511.73.
