Stocks on Wall Street were higher throughout the morning but fell sharply after tough words from House Speaker John Boehner aimed at Democrats and the White House. The initial reading on gross domestic product growth in the third quarter was revised up and October pending home sales were higher than expected, but the economic data was largely overshadowed by the ongoing political drama that continues to drive the market's swings. The averages quickly recovered a bit after the end of Boehner's press conference but head into the second half of the trading day well off their earlier highs... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims dropped 23,000 from last week's upwardly revised level to 393,000, versus expectations for claims to fall to 390,0000. The Commerce Department revised its estimate for the gain in Q3 GDP to 2.7% from the previously reported 2% gain. Analysts expected growth to be revised to a 2.8% rate. However, within the report, Q3 consumer spending was lowered to a 1.4% growth rate from the 2% gain previously reported. Pending home sales rose 5.2% in October from the prior month, versus expectations for an increase of 1%. In Europe, the Bank of England urged commercial banks to bolster their capital levels. Also, the European Commission's monthly business and consumer survey showed a measure of economic sentiment rose to 85.7, beating forecasts, with Germany and France gaining strongly... COMPANY NEWS: Among retailers reporting November same store sales, Limited (LTD) was one of the few to beat expectations and its shares advanced 1%. Among those declining after reporting worse than expected November comparable sales were Kohl's (KSS), Gap (GPS), Macy's (M), Target (TGT) and Nordstrom (JWN)... Several retail stocks also moved following earnings reports, with Tiffany (TIF) and Aeropostale (ARO) among the notable decliners. Guess (GES), however, advanced after its quarterly report and the declaration of a $1.20 per share special dividend... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Infoblox (BLOX), up 36% following its better than expected earnings and guidance, and Research in Motion (RIMM), up 6% after Goldman Sachs raised its rating on shares to Buy with a $16 price target. Among the noteworthy losers were Liquidity Services (LQDT), down 17%, and Barnes & Noble (BKS), down 10%, after their earnings reports. Also lower were shares of Advance Auto Parts (AAP), down 6% after Reuters and the New York Post said private equity bids for the company fell short of Advance's expectations, and that a sale may now be unlikely... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 1.11, or 0.01%, to 12,984.00; the Nasdaq was up 9.83, or 0.33%, to 3,001.61; and the S&P 500 was up 2.09, or 0.15%, to 1,412.02.

16:53 EDTGESGuess sees currency headwind in 2016
Paul Marciano, CEO, commented, "Turning to the outlook for fiscal year 2016, currencies will definitely be a headwind if they stay at current levels. But, as always, we will remain focused on what we can control, like our North America real estate realignment, providing a unique customer experience within our stores, and tightly managing our costs and inventory levels. We will continue investing in our omni-channel strategy globally and expect it to be a growth vehicle for fiscal 2016. We will also continue to leverage the Marciano brand in our North America Guess stores, and I am very confident in our upcoming product lines for fiscal 2016. Of course, all of these efforts are done with two key priorities in mind: improve the profitability of the Company while at the same time protecting our key asset, the Guess Brand."
