12:16 EDTCYH, JNPR, AAPL, ACI, HCA, PLXS, VHC, ANR, THC, STEC, AMRS, BTUOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were down over 2.25% at midday following the re-election of Barack Obama as President. Stocks began the day sharply lower and saw hardly a hint of buying during the session's early hours. The market selling picked up speed after the first hour of trading and the averages sat near their lows of the day at lunch hour. While investors repositioned after the U.S. election, news from Europe did nothing to help matters. ECB President Mario Draghi said he was anticipating weakness in the European economy for the foreseeable future and that Germany was now being impacted... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., President Obama was re-elected and Congress remains split, with Republicans keeping control of the House of Representatives and Democrats maintaining their grip on the Senate. While no excuses remain for not addressing the fiscal cliff, the climate of partisanship may make it difficult to strike a compromise before January 1, if at all. In Europe, the European Commission lowered its 2013 growth forecast for region's economy to 0.1% from a prior call for 1% growth. Also, German industrial production fell 1.8% in September from the prior month, which was worse than forecast. Draghi summed up both data points in a speech, putting a fine point on the European troubles that magnified the dour tone of the U.S. market... COMPANY NEWS: Hospital stocks were among the few gainers following Obama's win, with Tenet Healthcare (THC) up about 7.7%, HCA Holdings (HCA) up 7.7% and Community Health Systems (CYH) up 6.4%. Conversely, coal stocks, which had been strong since Romney's pro-coal statements during the debates, fell sharply, with Alpha Natural Resources (ANR) down 10.6%, Arch Coal (ACI) down 12.7% and Peabody Energy (BTU) down 8.6%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were VirnetX (VHC), up almost 18% after a jury awarded the company over $368M in a patent verdict against Apple (AAPL), and Amyris (AMRS), up 20% after its quarterly revenues were better than expected and its losses were not as bad as forecast. Among the noteworthy losers was Plexus (PLXS), which fell 28% after Juniper (JNPR) dropped the company as a supplier. Also lower were shares of STEC (STEC), which was downgraded at Craig-Hallum and Lazard Capital and slid over 23% after its disappointing guidance for its upcoming quarter... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 306.25, or 2.31%, to 12,939.43; the Nasdaq was down 72.10, or 2.39%, to 2,939.83; and the S&P 500 was down 33.22, or 2.33%, to 1,395.17.

Nonetheless the firm thinks the Watch can be accretive to Apple's gross margins and could generate significant sales volumes going forward. Bernstein keeps a $142 price target and Outperform rating on Apple.
